Green Room - Week 5 - Day 8

The poll is finally up and you have a few days to vote: https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1079721.html

No one has said it yet, but some of you might think that's not enough time. To which I say: "OK Boomer".

Really, that was just an excuse to use the phrase.

What have you been waiting for an excuse to say? Not to me. Just to life in general?

Have you been waiting for an excuse to talk about a particularly good entry you read this week? This would be a good time to bring it up!

First!

Edit: My First first! Yay :)

I always want to say OK Boomer to my coworkers but I refrain because I try to keep politics out of work even though they most assuredly do not

Happy first first!

There are many things I want to say to many people, but if I’m not saying them in real life, it’s definitely not going to help matters to dish them here!

I may not get a chance to read much this week, it’s pretty hectic. I honestly think this was the fastest entry I’ve ever written - but I’m still pretty happy with it, so that’s good.

I’m leaving on Friday and need to get a bunch done before then. And hopefully I’m starting the next book for my clients. Because after Friday, my schedule will be all out of whack.

I have too many pithy things to say, mostly derived from movies. Things that would make me appear witty and culturally current. Wait -- I lied. My Pithy Sayings Account is overdrawn. I've got nothing.

I haven't been waiting to say it anymore, in particular, but I remember when I first started listening to Welcome to Night Vale, and there was an episode that told you to memorize a long list of words, and that they couldn't tell us when we'd need them, but that it would be important when we did.

So I tried to memorize the list so that if anyone asked me "Hey, have you heard of this Welcome to Night Vale thing?" I could just immediately start reciting the list to them, and hilarity would ensue.

In practice, the first time someone asked me about it I froze up and couldn't remember whether the first word was "hazelnut," "cuttlefish," or "mystify." The second time I had an opportunity like that was when I saw someone wearing a Night Vale t-shirt, and just started reciting the list to them, but they either hadn't gotten to that episode or it didn't have as much of an impression on them, because they had no idea what I was talking about.

There is something I have been longing to say. You know when people want to say something really mean and they start out by saying, "I really hate to tell you this, but...?" Well, I L O N G to say, "then don't." And just walk away.

I feel better even just writing this.

Thank you, Gary. Catharsis is wonderful. :-)
