Best. Short story. EVAR.




(I need someone to geekily pretend I'm an English major with.)

It's been a while

A few weeks ago, visiting my grandfather in the hospital, I ran across this man at the entrance. One of his eyes had gauze taped over it, poor guy... but what struck me was his pissy disposition. His frown looked like one-half of the McDonald's arch, jutting out from his chin, his upper lip stiffly obscuring his lower one. I think I will wonder all my life what he was so angry about. I mean I know he'd just lost an eye or something, but it seemed more than that. It seemed like he had a vendetta against someone, probably the someone who poked that optic out.

Or maybe he was just mad he didn't get a super-cool pirate eyepatch. I know I would be.

Like I said, poor guy.

Meme x2

Because I had to reward myself for doing absolutely nothing all day! Woohoo!

leobrat asked me five questions in her meme. Answers here, complete with a Shakespeare quote!Collapse )

Comment to the post and I'll ask you five, thought-provoking questions.

A meme I just thought up: Since I love to ramble about philosophy and symbolism and metaphors, ask me a question (fandom-related or not) that I can pick apart and analyze. Hopefully this will lead to some intelligent conversation! ...Or maybe not.
