I once had a hard time convincing my friend that there was in fact a show called “Strip Mall” and it had nothing to do with stripping.. She still doesn’t believe me.
HOLY CRAP! I completely forgot about this show until just now! Didn’t it used to come on after Strangers With Candy which came on after UCB or something? Wow, what a weird couple hours of tv. A friend of mine and I used to watch all of that religiously in middle school.
That was just after Comedy Central finally became a real network and started airing something other than Kids In The Hall and AbFab reruns 24/7. Not that I was complaining about those.
TL;DR I believe you lol.
When I was 17 (almost 10 years ago) all of my friends were in their early-mid 20s. For some reason I remember having a very stoned conversation in which I was trying to convince them that the Snorks was a real show.
To this day it bothers me that they were so unaware of mildly popular cartoon references from their childhoods.
I had a really strong Snorks vs Smurfs argument…
- Me laying in bed: Omg that is the most perfect idea for this story. Yes, oh sweet baby jesus. So much perfection. It will flow so well. Oh...I can't wait to write this. It's going to be so great.
- Me sitting in front of my computer: HOW DO I WORDS?!
Two weeks of work on my own churned out two sketches, as many decent premises and plenty of self loathing.
One conversation with my brother today and I have two pages of premises, five fleshed out sketches and we laughed for just about three hours straight.
If I had a deadline I would’ve killed myself a week ago.
I need a full time writing partner. I’d work with my brother more but he lives across the country and works three other jobs. The loser.

I’m a sucker for some gifs, thank you. And I love your input about things. You’re very insightful.
Aw, shucks. Thank you!
lintelsnacks replied to your post: Another thing I don’t quite understand about Tumblr
I quit responding to those things because half the time the person who’s posting it doesn’t even care about the replies they get. I’ve unfollowed most people who do it as they were usually boring in the end.
Yeah, I’ve never replied to one. I’ve thought about it and then I think “what’s the point?” Nice to know some people don’t even give a shit after instigating the dialogue though. Figures haha. That’s like someone asking you a question irl and not waiting for the answer, annoying.
Here’s an unrelated gif for you too. I hear Tumblr likes gifs.
katnissandpeterpan said: I do it cause I think it’s fun, and sometimes people simply don’t ask because they can’t think of anything. When I see an ask list on somebody’s blog, I usually ask a couple questions that look interesting that I usually wouldn’t think of.
That makes sense. Do you think there’s a reason people would rather send just a number instead of copy/pasting the question? I mean aside from being sort of easier.
Thanks for answering.
(Hope I did this reply thing right. It’s been a long time since I’ve been on here with a computer and it’s changed since the last time. Can’t do this on my phone.)
Here’s an unrelated gif…because I can.
These personal survey type posts begging people to send numbers or what-have-you asking their associated question.
Why send the number? Why not just ask the question so the one being asked doesn’t have to refer back? It seems unnecessary and just adds to your post count while not adding to the experience or content.
Also, why do people have to ask to be asked things? In any other forum off or online people wouldn’t respond to this. You would never walk in to a room and post a list of questions while you beg someone to repeat them back to you. The questions have essentially already been asked, why not just answer them?
I understand wanting to engage followers but this approach is counterintuitive to me. Could be because I can’t carry a conversation to the corner. I’m not exactly skilled in interacting with people.
Finally, it’s all very MySpace-esque. I think we can all agree on our MySpace sentiments.
Carry on with the posts though. If I didn’t enjoy the blogs I follow I wouldn’t follow them, of course.
I’m sorry but the Norwegian butter crisis will always be hilarious to me
Norway ran out of butter
who runs out of butter
apparently Norway does
I could file this under reasons to move there.
No butter = more creative cooking (I don’t enjoy butter itself)
Oh! And fjords because I pine for them. (who doesn’t?)
…I guess that’s about it.
