Let’s talk about something funny

Me: “I haven’t been able to think of any good blog posts lately.”
John: “Well, you could write one about us talking – those are always funny.”
Me: “Yeah, but we haven’t had any particularly funny conversations lately.”
John: “What? We talk about funny shit all the time!”
Me: “OK, then let’s come up with something funny to talk about right now.”
John: “…”
Me: “Good effort there, captain funnypants.”
John: “Shut up.”
Me: “The Bloggess was telling a story about her and her husband riding in the car discussing whether or not her eyeballs smelled.  Do you think eyeballs have a smell?”
John: “Probably.”
Me: “OK, her conversation was way funnier.”
John: “Let’s move on.  Are you excited for the Rockies / Cubs game tonight?”
Me: “Sure!”
John: “Who are you rooting for?  You know I’m rooting Cubs.”
Me:  “I dunno.  But I want to wear my purple sweatshirt.”
John:  “Then you’ll be rooting for the Rockies.”
Me:  “Oh, that’s right!  Yeah, purple!”
John: “That was kind of a funny conversation…”
Me: “Wooohoo!  Blog post!”
John: “It wasn’t THAT funny.”
Me:  “Well, it’ll have to do.  I’ve got purple to wear and places to be.”  

I don’t have to wear pants anymore!

In related news… Eric and I finally found a place of our own. WOOHOO!

It’s super-duper cute and cheap and in the neighborhood we wanted and there’s a toilet ghost that sings when you flush and it’s perfect.

It’s a whirlwind of fuck right now with the moving in and unpacking and organizing but I did find some time to customize our shower curtain:

I’ve also already managed to set off the smoke alarm. Making tea. It’s starting to feel like home. :)

Zombies Vs. Vampires

The other night Eric and I were talking about very important social issues:

Me: So when the zombie apocalypse happens, who do you think is gonna win, zombies or vampires?

Eric: Vampires, obviously.

Me: Why obviously?  Zombies are a real threat.

Eric: Vampires are smart, and dead. Zombies only eat things that are alive.

Me: But zombies eat brains. Vampires have brains. The zombies wouldn’t want the vampires brains?

Eric: Zombies don’t eat brains because they’re hungry. It’s animal-like instinct. They don’t go around digging up graves. They just kill things and gnaw on them.

Me: Oh… I guess that’s true. So the zombies wouldn’t care about the vampires.

Eric: Right.

Me: But the vampires would kill the zombies because they don’t want them killing all the people.

Eric: Yeah, I guess. Hadn’t thought of that. Vamps do need to eat, so they would have to keep a food supply around.

Me: Right. They’d just kill the competition. So, who will beat the vampires? Ware-wolves?

Eric: Doubt that. Some higher demons could though. Vampires and Warewolves are half-human. Not as strong.

Me: So, evil Pegasuses then? Oh! that’s a fun word, Pegasuses. Pegasuseses. Try it!

Eric: Um… no.

Me: No, they won’t win or no you won’t try it? It’s really fun! Pegasuses.

Eric: …

Me: Fine. Don’t try it. But you should know that when the evil Pegasuses take over, they plan to kill all the fun-haters first. That makes me worried for you.

Eric: I’ll take my chances.

The next day:

Me: I think I’m going to post our zombies/ vampires conversation on the blog. The world needs to know about the evil Pegasi. I thought about it today and that’s probably how you make Pegasus plural.

Eric: Probably, yes.

Me: But Pegasuses is so much more fun to say! Did you try it?

Eric: No.

Me: Are you sure? Your eyes say you tried it.

Eric: Well, not in public.

Me: You did try it!

Eric: Shut up.

Me: Maybe the Pegasuses will let you live after-all.
