Bergy Bits, why are you crying this week?

The pasta is not evenly distributed over the bottom of my bowl.

I did that thing you told me not to do, and I hurt myself.

I want to wear my Hello Kitty dress every day. I don't care if it's soaking wet, filthy or in the washing machine - that's your problem.

I want my toast "big" (whole) and "open" (not sandwiched), instead of a 4-triangle sandwich like I have had every morning for weeks.

I was perfectly happy with my toast cut into a 4 triangle sandwich until I saw my brother's big, open toast. Make me some new toast, I don't want this.

@Megasus "maybe partying will help poor Marco"

I was in love with Marco and when I finished the series I resented the "bubbling Hollywood honeys" and you can tell it made an impression since I remember the phrase "bubbling Hollywood honeys."

Did I totally make this phase up? I might have. REGARDLESS partying will help poor Marco.

I just got sucked into the BEST youtube spiral that might or might not have ended with Teenage Dirtbag.

I bought the UK version of Now! from 1995 to about 1998, so this is right up my street. Memories!
I've just dug out my double cassette of Now 39 which must have been at the same time as the US Now 1 as it has Never Ever (a song I could never like once I realised it is JUST AMAZING GRACE WITH SLOW TALKING OVER IT - sorry Jia) and Barbie Girl. Otherwise there isn't that much in common. It includes two hideous Robbie Williams tracks, but also amazingly This Is Hardcore by Pulp, quite an avant garde selection for this sort of compilation. I still adore this song and the video.

For your reference, here is the track listing:
All Saints: "Never Ever"
Lighthouse Family: "High"
Janet Jackson: "Together Again"
Spice Girls: "Stop"
Natalie Imbruglia: "Torn"
Billie Myers: "Kiss the Rain"
Robbie Williams: "Angels"
Various Artists: "Perfect Day"
Boyzone: "Baby Can I Hold You"
Tin Tin Out featuring Shelley Nelson: "Here's Where the Story Ends"
Space & Cerys Matthews: "The Ballad of Tom Jones"
Texas: "Insane"
Hanson: "Weird"
LeAnn Rimes: "How Do I Live"
Shania Twain: "You're Still the One"
Sheryl Crow: "Tomorrow Never Dies"
Radiohead: "No Surprises"
The Verve: "Lucky Man"
Pulp: "This Is Hardcore"
Robbie Williams: "Let Me Entertain You"
Catatonia: "Mulder and Scully"
Cornershop: "Brimful of Asha" (Norman Cook Remix)
Run-D.M.C. vs. Jason Nevins: "It's Like That"
Wildchild: "Renegade Master '98"
Bamboo: "Bamboogie"
Ultra Nate: "Found a Cure" [pretty sure I did a jazz/modern dance to this]
Sash!: "La Primavera"
Aqua: "Barbie Girl"
Steps: "5,6,7,8"
Louise: "Let's Go Round Again"
Chumbawamba: "Amnesia"
Camisra: "Let Me Show You"
DJ Quicksilver: "Planet Love"
Rest Assured: "Treat Infamy"
Warren G featuring Sissel: "Prince Igor"
Lutricia McNeal: "Ain't That Just the Way"
Prince Buster: "Whine and Grine"
The All Seeing I: "Beat Goes On"
Goldie: "Believe"
Backstreet Boys: "All I Have to Give"
Vanilla: "No Way No Way"

Idk I know I didn't look my best right after finishing college; I looked like a goddamn exhausted, acne-ridden, exhausted mess who just wanted to nap for a week and not here a bunch of older strangers go "Welp! Those were the best years of your life! What are you going to now with the rest of it." Somehow I never imagined my "best years" to be that panic-ridden and that surrounded by academic papers. People I think start to look best a couple of years after college because...I don't really know why. Also I think anyone going around saying "those were the best years of your life" ought to be smacked.

Last night I saw the dude who dumped me two weeks ago out at a bar, and we had a SUPER DUPER awkwardly polite "so how are you???" chat and I wanted to run away and die, but instead I drank several beers and made friends with everyone at the place. Round about 10pm I looked over because there was a great Smashing of Glass and General Commotion. He was too drunken to stand up and had fallen into a giant potted fern and kind of laid there for a minute with his arms and legs flailing in the air. Like an upside down insect. Whatever desire I had left for him suddenly diminished- it was fucking glorious. Happy weekend, Pinners!
