im just going to confess something here: i love when misha or jensen starts a joke and then the other one finishes it, in a way. i don't know if you get me? thanks for reading this tho :)
Oooh no – I get you! And I love it too!
Like when one says something snarky, so the other plays right along …
Or when they tell that same damn story a million FUCKING times, and the other always has to give a performance just so we all know what they’re talking about … never realizing that YES, WE ALWAYS KNOW WHAT THE FUCK THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT!
Or when they just forget that other people are around at all …
Or when they take turns telling the same story, finding new ways to tease each other as they go …
Or when they use props to help make a joke …
Or the times that you’re pretty sure they scripted something– just for an easy laugh …
Or when they actually have a script right in front of them, but they both get the same idea on how to make it funnier …
But most of all, I love the times when it’s obvious that they know the other so damn well, that they don’t even have to be making eye contact in order to make us crack up…
what if aliens just dont understand the concept of taking non professional photos like selfies and sharing them on the internet? like "John-human, you see me all the time. I do not wish to take another 'selfie' with you."
John-human was not of the sub category photographer, though
they didn’t seem to be aware of that themself. No matter where they went, they
brought their little ‘smartphone’ with them, seemingly for the sole purpose of
photography. It was beyond irrational, especially considering that John-human
was well aware that they were of the sub category physicist.
“John-human, you see me all the time. I do not wish to
take another ‘selfie’ with you.” Cg’jlas said when the human suggested
another photograph being taken of the two. “I have important work to do, and
clearly you have a plethora of photographs of us together. What could you
possibly need another one for?” It was getting to the point of being irksome,
if xe were to be honest. None of the other humans seemed to consider the
behaviour odd though, so xe would have to tread carefully in case xe was
approaching cultural territory.
“It’s for my blog. I’ve got people asking to see another
picture of us together, and I thought this’d be a good place to take one. It looks
cool in here.” John-human said as if it was the most obvious thing in the
galaxy. To them it probably was.
“John-human, I am unfamiliar with some of these terms.” Xe
said, contracting xir twarikial tentacle in an obvious show of confusion. “What
is this ‘blog’, and why have other humans requested to see your photographs? Is
it not most common to enjoy photographs of humans who are well known in
general, or known to the human watching?”
“Oh, well, yeah? I guess, but we also like looking at pretty
people or cool people, or just pretty pictures, and it’s really you all the
fuss is about. They like seeing us together.” They said, elevating their
shoulders briefly. “A blog is like a content sharing site on the internet – you
remember when I told you about the internet, right?”
“Yes, it was quite… interesting. So you are not confused
about which sub category in which you belong?” Xe asked, hoping xe didn’t come
across as rude.
“You mean my job? No, I’m a physicist, why’d I be confused
about that?” They asked, doing what Cg’jlas had learned was referred to as a
“Because you seemed to be under the impression that you are
of the sub category photographer. I am relieved that there is no confusion,
John-human.” Xe said sincerely, making sure to have xir expression and posture
“What? No, they’re just selfies. Everyone takes them, it’s a
thing.” They said before proceeding to call one of their fellow humans over for
one of these ‘selfies’. They then moved on to show Cg’jlas how they ‘posted’
the photograph, and some they had already posted. It made very little sense,
but the fellow human seemed to be treat it as something normal, walking back to
their work station after agreeing that John-human could post their photograph.
They had asked to be ‘tagged’ in it, which xe had absolutely no idea what
meant, but xe didn’t particularly want to find out either. It would just have
to be another part of humans xe didn’t quite understand. It didn’t seem like an
important part after all, if a bit irksome at times when xe was trying to work
Spotted at co-worker Kim Bryant’s house: a super classy reference
bookcase, complete with dictionary podium. It’s just the kind of thing I
imagine putting in my library room, if I could ever afford to have a library
room. (Kim and her husband, Chris Willey, keep it in the hallway.)
This thing isn’t just for show: Chris says, “Every few days to look up a word I’ve seen
somewhere (in a book or article) or one I’m thinking of but of which I’ve
forgotten the meaning. … I highlight anything I look up.”
Is it better than using the Internet? “Yes! If
for no other reason than it doesn’t have annoying ads all over it.” I can’t argue with that.
P.S. In case you’re wondering, the highlighted word in this
photo is “demiurgic.”
If you can’t distinguish fiction from reality or you think other people can’t then I’m sorry but this isn’t our problem. If you choose to be bitter about something other people don’t have a problem with, then go away. Turn off the internet.
