That book was hardcore, even for Rachel.
pssst reread along with my BFF and I! :B
Benedict Cumberbatch is not cool enough to be in a tag set with the mighty Animorphs.
Now thinking of all the times that "middle Animorph" kind of happened in-canon (Marco in a gigantic flea morph! Marco when his morphing was out of control and he morphed a skunk-spider! Marco and Jake in the bathroom when Marco was halfway morphed to osprey and had a beak face!).
Four-thirty in the morning I'm milking cows. Jedediah feeds the chickens and Jacob plows...FOOL.
Same with "American Pie." When the original comes on the radio I try my hardest to be absolutely obnoxious and belt the Ep 1 lyrics.
@maybe partying will help
ALSO I just remembered I have a very concrete "The Way" memory: I'm sitting in a motorhome with a bunch of Mormon girls and our moms, and we're heading to Ichetucknee to go tubing, and "The Way" is playing on the radio and my mom was really into that song. At the time I thought it was weird, like, Mom this song is weak, but now I wonder if she was just having serious Boomer feels.
There are some songs that have been irrevocably Weird-Al-polka'd for me, and "Sex and Candy" is one of them. In my head it's spun up and devolves into "Closing Time." Thanks, Weird Al.
A guy I had a crush on senior year discovered that song and was obsessed with that lyric and thought it was the most hilarious/subversive/whatever thing ever, but I mostly just cared about watching his mouth say those words.
Jia, you are formally invited to come watch this with me at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque when it arrives stateside.
SIGHS Miyazaki 5ever. First movie my man and I watched together was Porco Rosso. First movie I really remember being obsessed with as a kid (after Robin Hood) was, of course, Totoro.
I'm a cheapie, oft-tipsy night owl with a savory tooth. I am...the Taco Bus.
"It is what it is" is possibly my most loathed phrase in the world, because the worst manager ever said that to me when I was crying in a walk-in freezer because a customer had cursed at me and generally been awful. Basically fuck that phrase, blanket-bomb it from the English language.
