RE: loose thoughts
the other night i had a dream where i saw a duck on a skateboard. i was in…i think it was one of those “kind of like this real place, but not quite” things, i think it sort of resembled the corner where the atlantic news is in hfx, and i saw this duck skateboarding, and i tried to get my phone out to take a picture, but he skated down the street before i could. it was still pretty cool though. it reminds me of a conversation i had a while ago; what if, one time, you saw a dog driving a car—like, definitely saw it, distinguished beyond a doubt that the dog was actually driving—and nobody else saw it? obviously you’d never be able to convince anybody of this. but what would you do with that memory? would you eventually convince yourself that you must’ve missed a person behind the dog, or that it was just entirely hallucinated? would you hold on to it to the death? this should maybe be a movie.
apparently there have been chocolate skittles at various points. why? what about a skittle would benefit from being chocolate? by chocolate, i mean (well, this is what i was told anyway) that they were actually just full chocolate, not like a regular skittle with a chocolate coating or something. did somebody think, like, “taste the rainbow—now in brown!!!” would be a good pitch? honestly, it boggles my mind.
i didn’t follow the whole pussy riot trial that much. the one thing that sticks in my mind from the whole affair is an article i read once that referred to them as “cool women punks”. such an awkward turn of phrase—sounds like it should’ve been composed by a spambot rather than a thinking human.
i think it might be briefly amusing to feign ignorance and insist on pronouncing “pizzazz” as “pizzas” with an extra long zzz at the end. of course, this would rely on finding a circumstance which would call upon a somewhat regular use of the word “pizzazz”, and the only such situation i can think of off-hand is discussion of jem & the holograms. (speaking of that: after falling off for a bit, we’ve recently been back to chipping away at jem, we’re about a quarter through second season, and it’s great and i have a lot to say about it and once we finish the show i am probably going to be talking about it a lot.)
after probably at least 10 watches over a couple of days, this still makes me laugh till i can hardly breathe.
