HA
I forgot the linchpin in my thing about B last journal, the guy who I was thinking might be gay (/into me). So after he found out I was gay and showed special interest in me, I messaged him, this obscure acquaintance: Wanna hang out sometime or something?

Then he replies, same day: sure.
lol, i dont know what we would talk about or do, but yeah

HA. Does it get any gayer than that?
Honestly though, after that, I forgot about him, just as I've been doing again, surrounded by other things. This, however, is one I should probably pursue asap, I might regret it someday if I don't.

I've restarted watching Six Feet Under again, I'm thinking I'll get someone to watch it with me. Six Feet Under is to TV what War and Peace is to books: simple and subtle, yet so finely crafted it becomes not just a work of art but a dictionary of life, that it grasps the core of humanity and makes us feel it in all its inadequacy, a monumental work that stands head and shoulders above almost all other creations of the genre.

I think I talked about watching it for the first time in my journals a few years ago: it was the first, and so far, only time I cried during a TV show (the finale).

Maybe I want to watch Six Feet Under as simply a way for substituting the fascinating lives of the Fishers into my hollow shell, crushed under by high school and the million pressures of a soulless world.

I don't even know, I'm just being random now for something to say.
But, truly. Six Feet Under is a show about the Fisher family, who own a funeral home, and the show is just these somewhat dramatic, philosophical people living.
It's fantastic.

Anyway, I have to get back to my own soulless life now. Good day.

Easy reply...

"Don't worry. I know things we can do..."

If you're barking up the wrong tree, can always follow up with hiking, watching Six Feet Under, etc.

Or can turn into playful flirting?

I just cannot believe could do that to a child

Uh... Let's get back to B! :)

Huh?

Who could do what to a child?! Unless swimmer edited something out, not finding the connective tissue here...

You question my subject line... but not his? :(

It's the next line following the ellipsis!

Hmm...

I assume his are song lyrics, but you're doing something to a child... heh.

OMG… I find the "bait" unappetizing! :(

Not too subtly you're suggesting that >> I <<< may be advocating child abuse… all based on a propensity to assume.

I acknowledge that the subject line of swimmerguy's journal is subject to various interpretations… and very likely will leave one somewhat uncertain. Over the 4+ years I have been acquainted with his writing, I have come to learn that this is a type of humor a highly gifted mind may "throw out" from time to time. Nothing more!

What he quoted is the first two lines of the second stanza of an existing poem (not of his creation!). He ended that line with an ellipsis; I merely continued with the last line of the same stanza (not my creation)! I expected my subject line to be treated in the same light as his. The poem goes on much further…

****

What I was truly after was a bit more detail on "B"! Now grokked? :)

You make this far too easy sometimes. ;-)

Hehe...

It's a song about a porn star who killed herself. It's a gem.

I love it when you two fight. It's great to see the damage it does to the kids' psyches, and makes it easier to mould them into the perfect servants of SHUB-NEGURATH, BLACK GOAT WITH A THOUSAND YOUNG. ALL HAIL. ALL HAAAAAIL

In conclusion,
