It started on Friday…
Cho lent me his TV/VCR and went away for the weekend.
A new compulsion to fill the void, woo hoo!
Sat in front of the telly and watched the video for a lot of days straight.
A log of sorts:
“I don’t like being negative, but no.” (Mike)
someone’s picture from the night before haunts me. accompanying dreams and wishes to follow. apathy about all else. lots of water. telly. ooh, comedy. ooh, that wee bottle of Godiva white chocolate liqueur. it whets my soul and makes me nostalgic for daytime drinking with mum. go to town, buy a bottle of Bailey’s and “Johnny the Homicidal Maniac” #1 [still as yet unread].
watching Pee Wee HBO special, yay! he needs to do more stuff. Bailey’s is gone!
watching (and wanting) Laura Kightlinger [“Pulp Comics”]
“The coffee does get you going–all over the place.” “I wonder what people used to do before coffee, if they were just constipated.” (“Dr. Katz”)
“Take luck!” “You too!” Oh, Krista…
1995 Young Comedians Thing Aspen!
“Where you folks hiding your black people?” (Dave Chappelle. Oh yea–saw him in town yesterday. At the BP, no less!)
“A: Oklahoma is OK. B: Oklahoma–the circus has been here twice. C: Oklahoma–some people say we don’t suck. D: Oklahoma–trees are made of good. (They are, they are!) E: Oklahoma, Oklahoma–there, I said it twice!” (Anthony Clark, Oklahoma state motto finals)
“‘I’m celibate.’ That’s what everyone says when they can’t have it off, don’t they? ‘I’m celibate.’ Fat and ugly with no chance of a poke, more like.” (Bubble)
“Bitch trog!” (Patsy)
“Hello death, hello oblivion.” (Edina)
“Try to look more beautiful if you want to have more sex.” (that chick who works for Patsy’s magazine)
Ade! oh yes.
Francisco… Rivera? that comedian–can anyone help me?
Steve Frost. Chris Ryan. Stephen Fry. everyone else. so young!
“Well if you’re going to sin you might as well be original.” (Mike)
“Rolly Joger!” (Peter, “The Monkees” with (ha!ha!–get it?))
“This calls for a very special blend of psychology and extreme violence.” (Vyvyan)
rented “Red Dwarf” and “Black Adder II” from the library. Cho came back and doesn’t really want his telly back any time soon. woo hoo!
“You’re so clever today you’d better be careful your foot doesn’t fall off.”
“The sort of person we’re looking for is an aggressive drunken lout with the intelligence of a four-year-old and the sexual sophistication of a donkey.”
Define these terms, please: prat. oik. smeg off.
“Darling Fascist Bully Boy: Give me some more money you bastard. May the seed of your loin be fruitful in the belly of your woman. Neil.”
“You’re as alternative as Channel 4!” I can’t believe I didn’t recognize Drop Dead Fred when I saw him. Tis been so long…
Vyvyan’s pregnant! “How did it happen?” “Oh, come on Rick, how old are you?” “Well, that’s rather a personal question, isn’t it?!”
“My barely adequate psychic defenses are crumbling!” (Neil #2)
“Well that’s just typical! Five minutes to go to the most important party of my life and half the house has been wrecked by a gigantic sandwich!”
“Oh no. The front door’s exploded!”
I keep wanting to demolish things now…
many thanks to Lauren for “The Young Ones”! ooooh new addiction drool.
