Girl, it is Friday afternoon and I am on a subway train. Sorry for failing your test.

What test?

I just miss LMNO's fabulousness.  :cry:

Sometimes, it's almost like he's still here.

OK, I thought your response was because I hadn’t responded in kind. Mea culpa.

Also, YOU may be in one of those reality-warping tunnel thingies, but I am sitting at a desk watching security footage of my guys fucking the dog.  Figuratively speaking.  Maybe.

Are you finished at 5? If so, at least you’re close?

No, there's a thing today, so I will be working until approximately forever.  17 hours total, I think.  And then tomorrow.

The Good Reverend gets laughed at all the time.

But that usually ends when the laughers figure out WHY I'm covered in axle grease and feathers.

TGRR,
Lives for that magical moment when the laughs turn into something else, entirely.

No, not everyone is as bored as I am right now.  I am sitting here watching abject failure and listening to Big Girls Don't Cry by Frankie Valli on infinite repeat.

Because I'm not crying.

I suggest adding Tears on My Pillow by Little Anthony and the Imperials. I love that song.

It's killing me, Hoops.  They all signed a piece of paper when they got hired, which said something like this:

And there they are, "hiding" in a storage area.  I suppose it's as good a last Friday at your job as any, though.

For another half hour.

On Monday, Dirty Old Uncle Howl has a surprise for them.

YOU GET A WRITE UP AND YOU GET A WRITE UP AND YOU'RE FIRED AND YOU'RE FIRED AND YOU GET A WRITE UP!

EVERYONE LOOK UNDER YOUR SEAT!

If I didn't need warm bodies tomorrow, I'd do it this minute.

If you dress as Oprah when you do that I may never be able to stand up straight ever again.

Until this morning I was upset about the Great Seriousness™.

What is this "Great Seriousness™ of 2015"?  The forum search results have been uninstructive.
You will cooperate with the state, for the good of the state and your own survival. You will confess to the crimes of which you have been accused. You will be released and returned to society a productive citizen if you cooperate. Resistance will be punished. Cooperation will be rewarded.   --"Intersections in Real Time"

We don’t talk about that anymore.

And please do NOT ask about Intermittens Issue #4.

So I surmised, but a reference to the Great Amicability® would hardly have piqued my curiosity.

We don’t talk about that anymore.
Hmmm.

Basically, it was when the fun stopped and the Purge for Great Justice™ began.  Everyone (well, just about) threw their brains in the toilet and went full-Jacobin for social justice.  I don't mean social justice like "Let's fix this shit", but instead "Here's why YOU are a lousy human being and cannot match up to OUR tumblry goodness".  This shit actually started in 2012 or so, but went full potato in December of 2015 and exploded by the following July.

The predictable result of social justiceTumblr was achieved, by which I mean hardly anyone speaks to anyone anymore, and the board went from "some traffic" to "the morgue", nobody posts stories or art except Queen Gogira1 and Bobby Campbell, and once in a while some of the more clueless warriors drop in because they "missed us" by which they mean "they miss telling us WHAT." 

What's REALLY funny about all of this is it started in 2011 with the very polar OPPOSITE of social justice, which is to say a horrible old piece of shit named Charley who started bitching when he thought his e-harem had been encroached upon.  But that quickly became a totally separate storyline that is too ticklish to tell in the same thread as the SJW Muck.





1  Queen Gogira really IS about justice, and regularly confronts alt-right goons at demonstrations, despite her tiny frame.
