The best explanation of the exact way in which I am a pedantic and insufferable weirdo is when I once read something saying "no one ever wrote a song saying 'fuck the fire department'" I immediately had to go look up the lyrics to "911 is a Joke" to verify the claim.

With the benefit of adult hindsight, the teacher definitely replaced the rotting milk with a glass of junket before we all got in that morning, but at the time I was 100% convinced our teacher drank off milk on a dare.

Relatedly, once when I was in primary school, we'd done this thing measuring the weight or a glass of milk versus a glass of jellybeans. Said glasses of substance had then been left out in the classroom for a bit too long. The milk went gross and our teacher asked if we dared her to drink it. We did, and she did.

Later in the day, she made us all junket.

Update: If you leave watered down Coole Swan Irish creme liquor out in jars to catch fungus gnats, you end up with jars of alcoholic junket full of fungus gnats.

... why do I feel like such garbage today?

So all those people who tell you to use apple cider vinegar to trap and kill those little fly things are incorrect. What they should actually be telling you to use is diluted Coole Swan Irish cream liqueur, which I accidentally found out thanks to leaving out some dirty dishes.

So at our friend's building, someone has graffitied "white onion is for poor people" inside the elevator and never have I felt more like I'm missing out on some important cultural reference than when I see it.

So SEVERENCE is pretty good, aye?

In other news I did squats yesterday and a run this morning and now my legs are like, “… why?”

... apparently I have been married for fifteen years as of today. Neat.

So for a documentary that is fundamentally about the dangers of financialisation and monopoly, DOWNFALL (the Boeing film, not the other one) having Airbus as it's Secret Villain ("if only we, Americans, didn't have to compete against foreign companies!") certain is... a Choice.

5. THE EXORCIST is still a good film but probably not as shocking as it would've been before it was a pop culture staple. The special effects don't quite hold up in high def, and it's also not nearly as graphic as I was expecting? Which probably says... something. Also: Finally hearing in the wild the titular sound sample from I've Sound's "Fuck Me"!

4. MIDSOMMAR was... fine, I guess? Like okay Ari Aster I get it; women having negative feelings is destructive and bad and scary and we should, like, stop that, I guess? Whatever. Aster's films always feel like they're trying to be too clever for their audiences for me to fully enjoy, particularly the "shock" scenes that are there just to gross out people not used to seeing explicit gore. Like... whatever.

3. I really enjoyed the first half of the RESIDENT EVIL Netflix series, even the cheesy trying-far-too-hard soundtrack, and Lance Reddick is great (and also the "where have I heard...?" guy). The idiot ball came out a bit too strongly in the last few eps, which coincidentally is also when I started noticing Andrew Dabb's name in the credits. So, like. Okay. Would still watch season 2, though.
