Most of my time is spent trying to be Dana Scully. Or Tawny Kitaen. Depends on the day.

@frigwiggin I'm with you, I was rooting against a kiss at the end because I thought what they had was more of a band-of-brothers-or-sisters connection than a romantic one. I agree that it was definitely Mako's story, structurally, but since that was true I do wish that they'd given her more lines. It's fine to have Raleigh as a portal character/exposition giver, but since he was kind of bland I wished they'd given a little more time to Mako.
That said, it was awesome overall, so I made this:

Yeah, at 25 and 34 months, I've come to the realization that my quarter-life crisis didn't really end. It's just my life.
@chrysopoeia uggghhh I watched this really depressing documentary about Japanese host clubs, and most of their customers are prostitutes looking for a safe interaction with men. It was so sad. Then I actually saw some when I was in Tokyo, but they don't really bother Western women.
@Gulf of Finland blech, no no no. I don't want to pay $1K for a handsome young fellow to pretend to be interested in me, I want to pay like... a $20 cover and $12 for a glass of well whiskey for a handsome young fellow to pretend to be interested in me. At a place that is not my house or the kind of motel where I could afford a room.
@chrysopoeia meeeeee either. Could it be that savvy business people buy into the rhetoric perpetuated by OTHER savvy business people about us ladies being too delicate and prudish for such a thing?
@chrysopoeia RIGHT? I think this sounds lovely. Single-serving, no-pressure interactions with good lookin' dudes while i drink whiskey and try to make them laugh? It's like everything that was good about dating without the bad shit, after which I can go home to my lovin' boyfriend. Attention: People Who Make This Type of Thing Happen... MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

I am sad that "to love someone who loves you back" is under Greed. For some reason, that particular list gave me all the weepy feels.

Speaking just for myself, I don't think you can be fucked out of loneliness, but you can definitely be fucked waaaay further into it.
