Parents and fangirling

Phew, I had to watch two episodes of the Fall before I was released of my dad entertaining duties. I love that series (we’re on season two, and my old crush on Gillian Anderson from the X-files days is back as bad as ever or worse, lol), but I really wanted to get to write my comments on today’s GMM and to see what everyone else is saying.

I’ve been meaning to buy that fidget gadget cube ever since I first saw the ads online. I have my anxiety issues, panic attacks and a general nervousness to deal with, and I always fidget when I’m in a situation where I’m supposed to sit still. I’m notoriously famous for braking dozens of pens, because I can’t stop myself from fiddling with that clip that’s intended to hold the pen in your pocket or where ever.

Everyone in my family knows that if I ever get an intact pen in my hands, I’ll break it. Usually during a moment of silence, and the clip always shoots in the air like a missile. Awkward, and unfortunate, because sometimes I could use a pen I can clip somewhere. Oh yeah, I also chew pencils, drum my fingers, whistle and god knows what else. Actually, I must be really annoying to sit in a meeting with, lol :D.

I was a little distracted by my dad’s presence while watching GMM, because I’m not sure if he was following all the little silly things going on, and this was not a will it, so I ended up explaining him what they were saying. But the moment I asked him if we could watch something on youtube before watching Netflix was just so hilarious. I just told him I’d watch two episodes of the Fall if I could watch something else first for twenty minutes, and he asked: “Is it those two guys?” It’s kind of hard to hide your fangirl persona when you blush and grin like an idiot while trying to be all nonchalant and casual. Thank goodness this wasn’t too rhinky an episode, and even though Rhett talked about being nude and intimate while filming EB, I think my dad wasn’t listening at what he was saying at that point.

But there were so many things they talked about in GMMore today. The book cover is revealed on the Tonight show tomorrow (if anyone knows how to see it online when it airs, tell me!). Reba McEntire (such a fun lady and an awesome singer even if I’m not really a country music fan)! Non-youtuber guests on Ear Biscuits, and just R&L by themselves! I can’t wait!

I know I’m forgetting something, but the best part on today’s episode was that Rhett took the time to address the concerns about This is Mythicality replacing GMM. I wasn’t worried about this after they made the announcement on Monday, but I know many of us were. Everything they said today about the new content made me so excited and thrilled. And after watching the trailer for Ten feet tall, I’m actually waiting for the first episode of that, too. There was a dog involved and that is always a bonus. Also, I have nothing against Mike and Alex being silly, as long as we still get to see Rhett and Link and the rest of the crew. This really is Good Mythical More More :)

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.

You claim to love her, inside and out, but the only time you call her beautiful is when it’s 3 in the morning and I’ve already turned you down.
—  girls tell each other everything, c.j.n.
We throw around the word never likes its nothing but a small rose petal. The word never is a doubled edged sword. On one side it says ‘I will never leave you’ and on the other it says ‘I will never love you.’
