From the very first entry:

"I watched a pornographic movie with your uncle once once, and it got on my nerves a little. Um, I ... I had to turn the sound off because this woman was caterwaulin' like clarinet practice in a fire drill and I just... (sigh) I can't concentrate. I just wanted her to shut up. Cuz, it feels good, but it's not that good."

It was the phrase "caterwaulin' like clarinet practice in a fire drill" that got my attention. Beautiful.

After the week I've had so far, the parts I watched were a blunt gust of fresh air. I hope I didn't wake up the family with the much-needed laughing. I'd hang out with her and talk about books or whatever, and I don't think she'd offend me one bit.

applemeat, would you be my newest mefi spouse?
If not, I'd happily join your bookclub.

That adds a disturbing new layer of meaning to "wedding train".

I love this. I'm not sure why. But I do.

Wait. No. Start at the beginning. You must start with "Pinecones".

For the record, I have never questioned the sexual drives of animals.

This is really, really wonderful. Wonderful on a stick.

Sometimes it is.

That Ayn Rand one is so slyly delicious on so many levels at once -- very difficult to watch this discreetly at work. Causes spit takes.

"Are you fellas trying to altruistically help me and benefit my life? That shut 'em up."

I feel like I should mention that I spent a good hour or so cracking up at these. I would gladly pay US dollars for a stylishly understated Taylorham-Chickasaw Pants West Public Library t-shirt in order to support this endeavor.
