    Rest assured @Kinzvlle that I already have a very exclusive fan club in mind for CT. I'm going to call it marriage. :superwink:

    I'm off today, my hubby isn't. Have not received phone calls or text messages from family or him. So, I'm chilling, watching sappy Asian Netflix dramas, eating scrambled eggs and a toasters strudel with my coffee and my dog

    As in hoopleheads... people of low intellect and/or sophistication. Popularized by the show Deadwood, as can be seen in this short montage:

    Hulahoop people = hooples. Or hopeless spelled in a fancier way.

    It's also an Eastern US regional dialect slang as Homer was mentioning.

    My cousin is a hoople in the way you mentioned though. Used to post videos of it online before.

    Woke up from an awesome nightmare, so I wrote a short poem inspired by it. Very fun!

    Going car shopping with my brother-in-law while the wife spends the day with her sister. If this bastard starts talking about "The Pub" I'm going to dump him off at the nearest gas station.

    Hope to get some writing in later as well. Need to finish the current chapter today.

    This is clearly healthy. Look, LOOK at all the greens in it. Such a health conscious choice.

    Oh yeah, @Kinzvlle the impossible burger was damn good.

    @Dogberry's Watch Burger Kings fries aren't even good rat food, let alone human. McDonalds fries are superior, but Checkers fries are the YHVH among them all. :p

    @Moon I am scandalized. I love Burger King's fries. Maybe they're made differently out here, but McDonald's fries are usually bad. Plus, I don't know if they still use beef in their oil, something I shouldn't really eat.

    I shall eat my Burger King fries (typoed fires there) and you can eat your McDonald's fries and we'll both be content.

    This is far too logically a reply. This is the internet, we're supposed to take this to the debate room, have wall-of-text quote battles describing the complex nature of "French Fry." Then, after many pages of links to articles/"I've done my research.jpg," it would result in ad hominem and a mod shut down.

    All in the name of French Fry.

    ....
    .....

    I'm joking. Who has time for that? Lets eat our fast food and gain weight in peace. :p

    I can't fight, man. I've always been garbage at fights. I'm too passive, haha. Like, you wanna fight me? Go for it, I'm ready for pain.

    Which. That sounds bad. I know. But ... that's because it is. I have no idea how to get myself out of this.

    Oh look! Elephants!

    I am happy to report that you sir, Some Guy, know how to write a competent
    and well thought out story. :)
    From what I have seen you don't rely on plot demands and plot holes for your
    works to, well, work. :p

    In their comments on one of my chapters, someone quoted you as saying, "There's a lot of story in my story", which I believe was a reference to your own. I'm guilty as charged. :p
    Anyhoo, thanks for that. I appreciate the encouragement. :) Up until last week, I've been in a drought

    Gonna steal that list for later. Also, Hardcore History is a pretty good one. A lot of the history podcasts I tend to listen to lean either to focusing on the myths, folklore, and culture type side of things or darker obscure stories from history.

    With the former can you tell I had some lofty dreams of cultural anthropology before dropping out of school? Now I live it out through podcasts.

    I mean....I was just gonna make t-shirts...but you do you.

    (If you like it put a ring on it)

    May need to try that out one of these days. Also yes I`m with you on the fries. Burgerking has better burgers and desserts but Mcdonalds beats them out on things like fries and nuggets. Of course, many other places beat out the both of them but hey there staples. We`re probably gonna put a Mcdonalds on the moon.

    OT: Falling down the rabbit hole of Spotify playlists. Haven`t thought about The Doors in a while but dam if there not like medicine for the soul. There`s also a lot of Jimi Hendrick tossed in there, along with The Eagles and just dam it`s a good one. Even got some Paul McCartney. Routine kinda fell off a bit today but got it back on track mostly. Still don`t feel like I`m doing enough but that empty hole and yearning for greatness is the fallacy which is mostly likely to get me killed in all likelihood.

    Trying to stick to a rigid routine to help myself gets hard when the people that surround me our more prone to spontaneity but I`m trying to balance it out. Work was..not bad...hockey players...took a while for them to leave...went from being on top of my section to it being all dirty again.

    Idk almost bed time for me.

    Deeply regretting letting a good friend of mine and his girlfriend move into my house.

    The friend is great, but his girl is... well i can see now why they needed to leave their last place so badly.

    He keeps making excuses for her, but the fact is she's openly confrontational. I don't deal with that. I'm giving it a little more time before I let them know they need to move on.

    ETA: To keep in line with the thread, i'm drinking and interneting. Meeting up with another friend for a bit. I'm only back in the states for a few months, so i'm trying to get all my steps in.

    ETA2: Glad you're still here doing you @Cave Troll :)

    Just got back from dinner. Went to an all-you-can-eat buffet. I had all that would fit into my stomach. There was still plenty of food there, though. I didn't eat it. I wonder if I broke some kind of rule. Anyway, they let me go. Or I escaped or something - the jury is still out.

    Anyway, now I'm home and watching TV with a ginger beer beside me. And I'm catching up on internet stuff.

    Scooping my face off the floor with a shovel. Record setting weekend at Homer's joint. Fairly certain I lost 2 years off my life. Big boss can put another car in his garage with what we raked in this week.
