Welcome to The Carnival of Misfits.

Where the crazies come out and play.

Saturdays Alone Are For Memories
This is an excerpt from a story that a friend and I created a long time ago about our futures. It made me smile.

"Charles is an actor on Broadway. He also writes and produces AND directs. When he wants to. But not otherwise. So don't ask him. Katie lives in the mountains... right next to the beach!!! (She made her own mountains... or did she make her own beach?) Emma lives a few miles away from Katie, writes, is also an engineer, and works at the same place as Kiki. They are all still pretty good friends."

I miss you guys. Seriously. We should all get together and do something crazy again, like we used to. Play Plinko in the mall, go ghost-hunting and doze off in the middle of the road, wander around Hawthorne and get Charles to make little girls scream by simply dressing in drag. Remember those good old times? Let's do it again.

Writer's Block: Baby, you can drive my car
Do you have a "dream car"? If you had money to spare, would you buy a new car? If so, would you be more likely to get an eco-friendly vehicle, a vintage model, or a luxury sportscar?

If I had money to spare, I'd be buying a couple of cars, and a motorcycle.

Although if I had to get one it would be a Pontiac G6 Convertible with leather interior. I probably never will get this car becuase Pontiac went out of business, and if I somehow got this car, fixing it up would be a bitch.

And before Pontiac went out of business, this kind of car cost about as much as 3 Mustangs.


New Year's!

Writer's Block: Come here often?
Doctor Tennant
What's the best pick-up line you ever heard (or tried)? What's the worst? If you're instantly attracted to someone, will a stupid pick-up line dampen your interest?

My friend made up the following one and told me, and I just cracked up.

"I want to give you a dozen roses so when you look in the mirror you'll see the thirteen most beautiful things in the world."

He actually used it on me. Pick up lines are great if they're good, but I never know how to respond. If they're dorky but heartfelt it just makes it sweet and funny. I know how to respond to those: with laughter or a well-placed "Awwwww."

Writer's Block: The one that got away
Doctor Rose How Long
Do you believe in the concept of a soulmate? Do you think you've met him or her? Do you ever worry that "the one" got away?

I think there's someone out there who can feel like a soulmate, but there's not only one person for everyone. There is no "the one." That's because there's more than one. We care for people, we love them but they move in and out of our lives. If there's only one person out there for everyone, the chances of meeting them, of eve being on the same continent as them are practically impossible. We fall in love, we get married, but we weren't necessarily "destined" to meet them. If chance hadn't had us meet them, we would've found someone else we could fall in love with and marry and be just as happy with. So "the one" can't get away, because we'll always meet another. If we really love them, it'll work out.
