[Insert meaningless subject line here]
Dear God of comedy setup lines: I can sense that you care deeply for me (though not as much as you love TBQ) and are trying to lay out the leadup for a really whopping punchline here, with the whole "Spend the weekend watching gay sex on my computer until my monitor blows up, buy another one, watch more gay sex until it's too late to be awake, then throw my back out through the highly energetic act of sleeping" but not only can I not figure out what that punchline might be ("Obviously, I need more gay sex?"), I can't imagine any way in which it would be funny. Ow.

ACK!

*pets you*

First me, then yesterday Violetsmiles and now YOU - HOW in the world did sleeping become the most dangerous activity we engage in?

I feel for you and highly, highly recommend a heating pad or a thermal wrap and lots of pain pills, based on my experience of a couple weeks ago. *pets you* And if you're better than me, you'll call the doctor. If you ARE me, you'll just keep applying heat and pain pills and hope it goes away on its own.

At least you can watch more gay sex, right? Right!

I am you.

(It's not the full sort of "thrown my back out ow ow ow can't walk and even when I had that, they sent me away from the emergency room with "take painkillers, rest, apply heat" which I can do without wasting the time in the waiting room and my insurance company's money.)

Ooooh. *G* wait till you see the season 1 finale. You're going to want the season 2 premiere.

And if that finale doesn't make you a Brian fan, nothing will!

*g* I know what happens in the S1 finale; I'm spoiled in pretty heavy detail for seasons 1 and 2 and I think a bit of season 3.

I'm not so much not a Brian fan, just not especially invested in Brian, or in Brian and Justin as a couple. (Though Justin is growing on me, much more than Nathan did. Granted I only got to see Nathan in UK S2, when I suspect he was at his most annoying.)

I've reached the point where I'm not annoyed by Brian anymore -- he's just not my main focus. Not sure I have a main focus, though I suspect it's going to be Ted and Emmett. (I'm one ep away from the S1 finale now, in terms of what I've actually watched.)

but even so, *watching* it really tugs you in.

*G* I'm glad Justin is growing on you. *G* be interesting to see if he continues to grow on you.

yeah, I love Ted and Emmett. *G*

Clearly you need to watch gay sex in bed.

I do. Alas, there is no tv that's easily movable to where my bed is, and the couch is fairly sucktastic for one's back.

or

I do. Alas, there is no one in my bed having gay sex, currently.

Tell the straight people having sex in your bed to make some room.

Or to turn gay, I suppose.

I drove in behind a car with the vanity license plate: Romulus

What *is* a greco-roman archaeology major to *do* when she sees that?!?

I, of course, spent the drive looking for a car that said Remus and wondering how I could make the whole thing into a pun.

say - if I have a bachelors in archaeology, am I technically an archaeologist?

I think you're only allowed to call yourself an ist if you've ever been paid -- or at least done non-student volunteer work -- to do it. (I was going to say "or have a doctorate in it" but I can't imagine getting that far in academia without having done whatever it is professionally, even if it's as a teaching assistant, etc.)

I usually call librarian-by-training, but feel skeezy if I try saying I'm a librarian in an online discussion, given that I've never used the MLS in a library setting.

Barring the religious/belief-system types of ists. :-P She said, heading that one off at the pass.

*gently massages back*

What you can't see, because you're in the middle of it, is that this is the set up for something that will be amusing about 50 years from now, when you look back and it all becomes clear and you laaaaaauuuuggghhhhhhh.

Don't knock my theory. It's the only thing that's keeping me going at work.
