Perhaps it is time to come up with some rules, for myself, when it comes to TVT. Apparently you peeps are overwhelmed by my thought vomit. Sorry ’bout that. My brain is CONSTANTLY going. It jumps here and there and back again. I would say in a single day I probably think about 800 billion things….you know… speaking conservatively. The good thing about it: if you and I were to hang out, there would never be a lack of conversation. The bad thing about it:……um thereare lots of bad things about it. There are times I have to stop and explain to Andy how I got from one topic to another. My mom always called it bunny trails….she suffered from the same affliction. A word that connects you to a memory that connects you to something completely different, that leads to a random question that must be asked. Let’s look at an example of how this works:
We are watching “Stand By Me” on Netflix. Andy and Natalie discuss River Phoenix being dead. We can’t quite recall if it was suicide, at what age, etc. etc. While said conversation is going on, Natalie’s brain goes from River Phoenix – Joaquin Phoenix – thinks: What a nut job….what was that documentary about where he basically acted really fucking stoned and pissed the entire time? it had Ben Affleck’s brother or something?….totally a time waster…but he was really good as Johnny Cash – Johnny Cash thoughts lead to June Carter – June was pretty kick ass. Not many people can pull off that lap harp thingie….who decides to play one of those? Then my mouth opens and I say ‘Do you think it is hard to learn how to play the lap harp?’. So as you can imagine this is a very strange question when you’ve just been talking about a character in Stand By Me. Poor Andy I am surprised he hasn’t had me committed.
But that is how my brain works….basically it is constantly going. All the time. Calculating, Questioning, Working. It is tiring sometimes. Thus booze is awesome.
So I apologize peeps. I will try to limit my vomit next Thursday to just a couple of items. Scout’s honor…..is that salute two fingers or three…..boyscout popcorn is so gross? Why do they still sell it?…..see what I mean?
