"Val- how do you do it? What is your secret?"
Me: *looks left, looks right*
Me: *motions to come closer*
Me: *leans over and whispers in ear*
"But- you justโ€ฆ made whispering noises?โ€
Me: *smiles, winks and gives finger guns*

I don't know who you are. Or whether you're a man or a woman. I may never see you or cry with you or get drunk with you. But I love you. I hope that you escape this place. I hope that the world turns and that things get better, and that one day people have roses again. I wish I could kiss you.

@viciousviscosity it depends on the breed. Some, like the Bernese Mountain Dog, the spring is in the 1st sacral vertebra for maximum tail wagginess. In naturally tailless breeds like Australian Shepherd, the spring is in the 3rd lumbar vertebra so the whole butt wags. In Boxers, several high tension springs are in each leg. Poodles and that ilk are made up of hundreds of little springs. Dachshunds are basically one low tension spring.

@viciousviscosity #1 fav is from You Oughta Know by Alanis Morissette: "it's not fair to deny me the cross-eyed bear that you gave to me"

Clicking/Tapping games. I don't understand them. It's not a criticism, lots of things I don't understand are absolutely valid. I'm just not sure what the appeal is.

Where is the spring mechanism installed in dogs?

@viciousviscosity one of the songs from the russian "d'artagnan and the three musketeers" series was titled "pourqois pas" and used that french phrase in the chorus.

people who didn't understand french instead interpreted it as something like "ะฟะพะป-ะบะปะพะฟะฐ", which means "half of a bedbug".

Me: Why am I yawning? Is this coffee making me yawn? I think this coffee is defective.

SO: No, honey, that's you staying up too late and not going to bed at a reasonable hour.

Me: But I did, I was in bed before 3am.

SO: I think we need to redefine "reasonable".

What are some of your favorite mondegreens?

My SO has her phone in a cradle on her desk, and her coffee mug positioned in such a way that I am blinded with the reflection of the sun from her phone every time she takes a sip.

Going to sleep is like a reset for me. Bad mood? Reset. Cranky? Reset. Getting light-headed and feeling like you're going to pass out because you've been awake too long? Reset.

Maybe that's why I don't want to sleep when I'm in an enjoyable moodโ€ฆ

Just spent the last 15 minutes creating captionable reaction image clippings of @Kamikaze , and now I am unsure of what to do with this newfound bounty.

grossly and gloriously mean the same thing, in this sense, but like. the connotation is 100% different

to be gross is to be overwhelming. grossness is usually revolting a little - it's when something smells too strong, or oozes too much.

glorious is resplendence. it too is overwhelming, but in a rapturous way. for solaire to want to be grossly incandescent means that he understands that he just wants to be so full of light that others don't even know what to do with him.

big mood.

Friday night is an early start on the weekend!

@viciousviscosity I really believe anyone can make music. But there a lot of different kinds of music and some rely more on formalised structures. The more open kinds of sound are more accessible, but can be incredibly expressive.
The first step is to really start listening closely to the little sounds around you. Done people keep journals, where this listen to everything around them for a few minutes and make a note of what they heard. This is a good group activity.
If this sounds interesting, check out 'deep listening' and writings by Pauline Oliveros.
