The tagline for this blog used to be 'Unemployed and Unimpressed: Living the Post-University Dream', which was delightfully cheesy and sarcastic in equal measure. I was happy with that.
But then I bloody went and found a job despite all the awful unemployment issues going down.
"I’m not asking anything. I’m really not asking you for anything. I’ve never asked you for anything. I don’t even want anything. Okay? … I just want someone who wants to hang out all the time, and thinks I’m the best person in the world, and wants to have sex with only me. And it makes me feel very stupid to tell you this because it makes me sound like a girl who wants to, like, go to brunch, and I really don’t want to go to brunch and I don’t want you to, like, sit on the couch while I shop or, like, even meet my friends. I don’t even want that, okay? But I also don’t want to share a sex partner with a girl who seems to have asked for a picture of your dick. And also, I don’t want a picture of your dick, because I live very near you, so if you wanted me to look at your dick I could just come over and look at your dick. And I don’t really see you hearing me, and I don’t really see you changing, so… I just summed it up for you. And, I’m sorry that I didn’t figure it out sooner and you must think I’m even stupider than you thought I was already. But consider it a testament to your charms, because you might not know this, but you’re very, very charming. And I really care about you. And I don’t want to anymore, because it feels too shitty for me. So I’m gunna leave."
"But that is how my brain works: I have to tell you this, I have to ask you this, right now.
That’s OCD, I guess. If I don’t tell you now, it will be my fault if something goes wrong two seconds from now.
When I love you, it is always the time."
You’re Gonna Lose That Girl
Lee: About Twitter, right, how do you do it, because there’s all sorts of yous, aren’t there.
Lee: There’s the solo show, where there’s the sort of thoughtful bits and the monologues, there’s the lively, combative compere thing, there’s columnist, there’s blogger, and then there’s the Twitter thing. And they’re all slightly different. Now how do you synthesize those into - how do you give an account of yourself on Twitter as a particular person when you occupy all these different spaces?
Herring (quietly): I just write it in and sometimes it’s too long and I change the “and” to an ampersand.
