"Because open-minded exploration occurs only when my conclusions match yours?"  
Oh man, Get Fuzzy is, like, being all relevant to my life. Yesterday's strip is, quite frankly, my feelings for ghostgecko in a nutshell, though he never believes me. Damn him. I fell asleep in his motel room yesterday because I was sad and he drew this little picture of me while I was asleep. It's cute. It makes me look cute, which is quite a feat. He was like "if you don't like it, I'll throw it away" and I was like, "What?! Don't you dare!!!" I should ask for it... make sure he can't throw it away while I'm not looking. Then I wasted a page in his notebook doodling the way I would at speech and debate tournaments... a couple of people, some random eyes, some crosshatching (I love making squares) a fish, a rat, a girl, and a lot of me talking in the third person. Stephanie (poorly-drawn heart) Lew is a bit more sixth grade than I would like to admit, however.

Then today's Get Fuzzy strip is... like... if I'm not Bucky, then I am totally that Shih Tzu with a chemical imbalance. Fluffy, short, yappy, and bitchy. What can I say? I'm not proud. And both my father and Lew find this amusing. Don't you hate it when they gang up on you?

And I reallyreallyreally wanted to tell the Salvation Army girl that I was really a man, and I would have if I hadn't been with Lew. I think he would have done what Amy used to do, though, which was hit me with the nearest object and hiss "Stephanie!!!" Not that I make a habit of telling Salvation Army girls that I'm really a man (in a skirt); this was a special situation.

Also, Michael J. Fox's character on Family Ties = my future husband. Republican, anal, economics major, logical, self-centered, attractive, non-PC, and in one episode he ran in singing "Love is a many splendored thing," his father picked up when he trailed off, and then he exclaimed, "Kiss me, dad!" Yes, please... marry me, Alex, and we can have short babies. Or marry the Soviet chess player Ivan and have mad, passionate, geeky sex.

I printed out Yesterday's Strip. Not sure where I'm going to put it yet. Not even sure whether I want to give it to someone or save it for myself. It's just so... so appropriate to so many emotions and relationships. I should, like, put it on my Christmas cards or something. If I had the energy to send out Christmas cards.

Alex Keeton... oh, nostalgic heart throbs. I still tear up when I see Michael J. Fox these days. Real Life sux raw eggs.

Yeah... Get Fuzzy Christmas cards would be awesome. I would feel special if I got that strip from someone.

Ah, Alex... oh, yes, be still my heart. And real life does suck... it's so hard to believe that he has Parkinson's sometimes. It just doesn't seem like it could be real. But it is. *sigh* Celebrities seem so untouchable sometimes that I forget they're just people in the lottery of life and can still draw really shitty numbers.

Alex was my first huge crush. I used to watch Family Ties all the time and I absolutely loved him!

Mmm... Alex. I'd never watched Family Ties until this past weekend (let's just say that I grew up think PBS was the height of popular culture) when TV land had a forty eight hour marathon. But... I fear that I am now hooked.

I wouldn't be surprised... he's my new geek love, certainly.

There needs to be more geek sex in the world.
