The cowboys are gone.

The cowboys are gone.

Sometimes I think about memory and I mourn the fragility of it. I think of the people that I love or have loved, and I think that perhaps there’s some little thing in there that still belongs to the two of us though more than likely, it simply belongs to…

Wise words: Stupid is as stupid does

Wise words: Stupid is as stupid does

One of my biggest pet peeves stems from my childhood fear of being stupid. There was a lot of conflict by being treated as a bright student and yet possessing constant feelings of inadequacy. In the back of my mind was always that I would be caught out,…

I never intended to have more than one of these, but it’s hard to resist the allure of officially approved, collectible merchandise. I gave into impulse and brought home my ComicCon Sheldon to realize that my two favorite American fictional characters are (aside from their self-absorption)  diametric opposites. 
First is the gregarious, indulgent, inarticulate, happy-go-lucky, adrift buffoon and second is the god-complex, over-achieving, anal retentive brainiac who manages to offend everyone. It could be argued that Homer also lacks the social graces of your every day human being, but he still seemingly gets along with everyone where the same cannot be said for Sheldon. 
And in all this, the thought occurred to me: Sheldon for all his intellect and insight lacks the simple everyday wisdom that Homer shows with semi-regularity.
I find it amusing that my two favorite characters are such opposites. Who would win in battle? It’s hard to say but I think Sheldon’s head would explode before anything else could happen.

evopropinquitous:

When you’ve been dumped unceremoniously while in the field by someone you love, over an excruciatingly long two day period because it is done via instant messenger (instant messenger…), your options for making yourself feel better are limited, at best.

These may include:
