Goddamn, I hate Halloween.
When Witnesses and Mormons come knocking, at least they bring kindling.
I'm not carving a pumpkin this year.
I hate Halloween, but I love carving pumpkins. Opting not to carve is yet another symptom of my unending ennui. Ugh.

Chimpanzee holding a sign (which was surprisingly hard to find - I’d have had to ‘shop a blank sign and then add text to that - and is the biggest reason I’m skipping this exercise) lamenting his non-opposable thumbs, poo-flinging, nit-picking life.

catty1 asked: Now I'm all confused 'cause now that you mention it I think we couldn't remember anything about the second one except that motorcycle spin on one wheel with a gun thingie ... that was 2, right? Which was the one with the cool Vatican switcheroo? See, they all bleed together! The last one had Simon Pegg and lots of running in Shanghai, right?
catty1 replied to your video: Yeah, yeah. Tom Cruise is a crazy-eyed… The last one, which had Simon Pegg in it, was fun. Some friends & I had a hilarious time trying to remember what happened in the 1st one - we couldn’t! Everything we remembered was...

I tried leaving someone a short radio play as voicemail in three different acccents/as three different characters. Man, did the two more exaggerated accents bleed into each other a lot. Nasty. And I got cut off right before the end, too; that was probably for the best.

Levante pulls off the impossible →
fuiru: Levante has the smallest budget in the First Division — and by some way. Its budget stands at €22M ($30.6M); Barcelona’s is €461M ($641M). Each year, it makes around 2 percent of what Madrid and Barcelona make — and then it loses it again, paying off its creditors.

I need this for a joke I’m writing; any help would be much appreciated. When you think of a proto- or stereo- typical member of PETA, is there a piece of jewelry that seems appropriate for him or her to be wearing? Like a claddagh or a promise ring or anything like that?
