I'm the biggest nerd that ever nerded  
I came to this realization last night, in a meandering sort of way, and it made me SO excited. I'm so fascinated by how the scientific manipulation of the body (medical, chemical, neurological, psychological, whatever) is portrayed in media. It's usually negative, which is sort of disappointing but not unexpected.

I'm watching Men in Black! Or I was, anyway. I am reminded of what "The Alexander the Greater Affair" taught me, which is that Rip Torn used to be skinny and hot. Proof! Marshmallows! Oh god, I kept waiting for a Hephaestion to show up... but of course, no. 1960s >:( where is my gay? Also the MiB reminded me of UNCLE. Huh.

Tomorrow is my birthday. D: Today is ffarff's birthday! Tomorrow is also parma_violets birthday! Whoa! Happy birthdays! This is like the time in middle school when I was at the bus stop and the other kid there was talking about his birthday coming up and eventually we realized our birthdays were on the same day. Crazy.

I want cookies. Cookies and sex. But not at the same time.

I have all this stuff I need to give you for your birthday, and I was thinking of sending it to you, but you'll be here soon anyway! So I can give it to you in person! I'll even bake you cookies and we can have sex.

Someone, not me, pointed out a while ago that 60's spy shows had an incredible amount of brainwashing, mindfucking, personality-altering drugs...part of that interest was because of the way psychoanalysis was getting to be a big influence in popular culture, and the idea that the self could be messed with was a huge one (not to mention the drug culture, which was doing the same thing), and also because the CIA had been doing mind-control experiments around then...

Also the MiB reminded me of UNCLE. Huh.
Holy crap, yes.

Presents! \o/ :* You are too good to me and I cannot wait to be with you. :/ Sigh, I'm sorry someone has to be around to feed the cats here.

YES YES YES that's exactly the sort of thing I wish I had an excuse to write a long silly paper on! :D

... here come the men in black

hahaha, ive had that happen with the birthdays.
The guy with the same birthday in my circle of friends wont share parties or anything and he's a bit of a jerk so he likes trying to hoard my other friends and gets pissy when they contact me on that day etc etc. he's like 35 and a lawyer and he acts like a little kid about it. its bizarre.

happy birthday!

I think having someone to share birthdays with would be awesome. I would seriously be all over that, mostly because the attention embarrasses the hell out of me and so being able to divert that to someone else sounds really terrific. So that guy is a weirdo.

Happy birthday to you in a comment that is late!

he's just a dickhead.
he got all pissed off at me when he found out we shared birthdays.
each year he makes his mother cook a three courses dinner for him. as if she didnt do all the work when he was born...

Happy birthday!

Also: I bet cookies and sex at the same time is awesome. Multi-task your deadly sins-- get your gluttony and lust on at the same time. If you hog the cookies you get greed in there as well. ^_^

Thank you!

LOL I take a slightly OCD view of these things. It's like having corn and peas (or any kind of side dish). I'm not so weird that they must not touch ever, but I also don't tend to go out of my way to mix them up. Same for cookies and sex, or food and sex in general. If they happen to meet, cool, but I'm still wary of going into it with a plate of fudge brownies or whatever.

Uh, yeah. :D

Happy Birthday yesterday!! Sundays I hide from the web. :P

Also, your icon makes me happy in many, many ways.

Thank you! And hey, I hide from the web... a lot of days. :/ So, ain't nothing wrong with that.

And yes, oh, this icon. I actually bought this for it, and I'm still a little disappointed that she had to cut up an excellent t-shirt to do that. :/
