7 "you must have had one noisy birth"

this bright, sunny day, the intelligensia abandoned h.q. to hold court with ice cream at the pig. excepting a bizarro moment where a drunk man approached our table, leaned over the fence and uttered a prayer that climaxed with jazz hands (which was its own kind of fun)- it was a dandy little time.

since the assembled ESLAs were office workers with considerable downtime and endless internet access, it seemed inevitable for the talk to turn to katie (and, yes, we're on a first name basis) and the silent birth. we, of course, all agree the logic behind a silent birth is bunk. but for a glimmer of a moment we were able to imagine the appeal. the relief of blaming everything wrong or bad in your life on the circumstances of your birth. it's obviously taken a load off tommy cruise's shoulders.

are you a light sleeper? a drunk? a nail biter? lactose intolerant? immature? aggressive? abusive? grossed out by certain words? colorblind? too shy? too loud? a philanderer? a gambler? a pimp? no worries- you just had one hell of a noisy birth.

I love the picture. Katie is going to eat his head. Try being silent during that Mr. Cruise.

To think that Katie used to be in my top girls list. That is almost as bad as the Lifehouse incident.

love how it's an "incident" now- a blip of hardcore lifehouse fandom. they're huge in britain now. apparently "hanging by a moment" only just made it across the pond.

You can say all you want, but "Breathing" was a damn good song.

And Katie was number one with a bullet for me for a long time.

oline said...

ah jeremy- do forgive me if i've given the impression that i would ever impugn lifehouse. only some of their fans! and you must clarify the katie-bullet comment. would you have taken a bullet for her or shot her if you had one??

JJerm said...

No taking of a bullet, no shooting either. Simply put, she was the top of my list for an oh so long time. I think Dawson's Creek ruined many a male out there.

got it. a bulletted list!
