in three weeks me and the ladyfriend will be here! i’m so excited! days of laziness! baking potatoes, baking in the sun! my sister lives there so it’s pretty cheap for us to travel there. (i say this just in case the tumblr’s Privilege Police, of which i am jr journeyperson lieutenant, are going to hound me about having monies for airfare.) i’m sposed to get my grad school decision around that ides-bewaring “mid-march” time. i’m hoping to see that letter the day i get back. no bad vibes!
i’m excited to future-tense march-and-beyond travel and do things with ‘manda. she’s my perfect companion for doing things. she took me iceskating—for the first time in my life!!—a week ago. i only fell twice, and once was during a game of tag i tried playing with her (in which she became the first human to ever WIN tag, i think).
we want to go snorkeling. i’ve never been. have you ever snorkeled? in an ocean? with the sharks and barracuda?
have u ever been attacked by me n my friends? im the great barracuda. observe my underbite n piranhalike teeth. a group of me n my friends is called a battery wh is wut u humans also call a series of short diagnostic tests. we will test u teej.
The song was written by frontman Black Francis while he attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst, inspired by his experiences scuba diving in the Caribbean. He later said he had “this very small fish trying to chase me. I don’t know why—I don’t know too much about fish behavior.”
whoa tangenty tangent time:
With your feet in the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
When there’s nothing in it

i had dinner with amanda and her parents on friday and her mom was concerned about sharks because she saw on the news that they are really out this year. i was like, maybe it was just one attack that kicked off a media frenzy (LOL) because hey that stock footage won’t play itself. i think amanda said something very funny and aphoristic and kinda sassy like “you swim with all the sharks in the world when you swim in the ocean”. story of my life etc!
relevant: the first blockbuster film of all time Jaws is on netflix instant right now. should i watch it? do you think a battery of barracuda chasing down humans then nom-nomming them would have been more terrifying than a single dumb “great” white shark? can you see their glinting formation, lunging towards you like the spectral swords in castlevania games?
ur so fucked. me n my friends r going 2 underbite rite into yr chest… this summer in WAVES OF MUTILATION 3D
also, you guys remember the single funniest original thought of all time circa two years ago?
