DUH

Things I don’t do never get done.

FOOD

Buffets get me as excited as R. Kelly at the Kid’s Choice Awards.

REALLY

Some of my best friends are in bands I hate.

SOME BAND SOMEWHERE

People never know if I’m dead or not so I decided to make a quick appearance at the show. The glitternazis were out in full form, acting like they hadn’t seen me arrive and admirably stayed in character all night by ignoring me completely. It took a long time to get a drink even thought the bartender kept looking at me. My friends kept acting like they didn’t know me and would whisper something in his ear and then she’d look at me and laugh so I smiled back and waved.

I fell on my back for about twenty minutes wondering why I'd never noticed the earth's spinning rotation before.

TO DO

Imagine my mother dancing.
Galaxy sit-ups.

The dead body didn’t move. It just laid there.
A cell phone in its pocket began to ring.
