u know what was a terrible idea?

watching the bicentennial man, one of my favourite movies as a child

i’m crying like a motherfucker, and not because of the plot

I’m so angry and sad about Robin. Not at him, but at what happened to him. It’s noy fair and it sucks.

When I was a kid, Mom would bring home Bicentennial quarters for me from her job at the camera store and I would occasionally find one in change I would get when buying stuff.

I was fascinated by them for some reason and hoarded them like some demented squirrel preparing for the apocolypse. I’d thought to save them until they became rare and sell them, or at least amass the world’s largest collection, but now … well, I’ve come to realize that this is a silly plan.

But every time I think of rolling them and putting them in the bank, something inside recoils in horror. Sadly, this is the most useful thing I could think of; Making some sort of wallpaper for a computer. This isn’t even the complete collection, either. I have some more in a film cannister, as there wasn’t room on the scanner for them … God, I sound like a shut-in.
