The Honey Pot

pt 1:

I frequently have to wash medical tubing for a nebulizer

and to shake the last droplets of water out of the tubing

I swing it like a lasso of tubing truth.

I’m sure that’s how it’s done in a hospital setting.

there’s a whirling noise, it’s a bit dangerous, and it keeps people at a distance.

pt 2:

I was remembering about a year and a half ago when CousinManlius had returned from Korea and was getting ready to move into his apartment. I was doing some preliminary shopping with him and we stood in the band-aid aisle for a very long time. So long that I started making suggestions,

"well, a cute character bandage is good for little cuts but you also might want a few of the heavy duty ones that will STAY STUCK, when you really need that."

and  finally he said, “I can’t even remember the last time I needed a bandage.” and we started walking to another section of the store.

and I was astounded, “REALLY? I’m always needing bandages and getting bandages for people”

"Well, Jennifer, I TRY NOT TO GET HURT."

and I almost died laughing in that Target, “hahahaha. yeah, my life is just constant DANGER!”

pt 3:
Anyway last week I scraped part of my thumb knuckle off while trying to remove the tubing from the nebulizer. I had a bandage. It’s healing nicely.

my middle name is danger.

no it’s not. it’s Lynn. but I might change it to Dangereen.

CousinManlius and Jennifery see Les Mis:

me: hey? are you feeling okay?

CousinManlius: yeah. oh, I did fall asleep for a sec.

me: I know. I looked over. you were adorable.

both of us just standing there, kinda dazed, looking at the screen

CousinManlius: was that good?

me: HAHAHAHA… it was beautiful…

CousinManlius: oh yeah, it was fucking gorgeous.

me: and it was very sing-y…

CousinManlius: what was Russell Crowe doing? He was in an entirely different movie than everyone else. ugh.

me: pfffft. maybe. WHAT IF TOM HARDY HAD PLAYED JAVERT, THOUGH?!?

CousinManlius: yes. SOLD!

me: The fight scene in the hospital, all I could think about was how I wanted Jean Valjean to fight off Javert’s swordplay with a loaf of bread. Then it would have been perfect.

CousinManlius: My girl, Anne, really nailed her song!

me: Yes, the five minutes she was in the film were really great minutes.

CousinManlius: I know! I couldn’t believe she chopped off all her hair for that amount of screen time. Remember when I sang that song in a middle school production?

me: yes!

CousinManlius: pretty similar.

me: HAHAHAHA.

some movies we probably shouldn’t see together but, we don’t know what they are until we see them.

At A red box in Chicago (not tonight):

me: UGH, what we should be watching is the re-release of an old Tom Hardy movie!

CousinManlius: what’s it called?

me: …Deserter? I think. I don’t see it. They re-released it…

CousinManlius: because, people are finally starting to notice what a f*cking amazing actor he is?

me: YES. ButT also they added a shower scene, I think.

TONIGHT

This is a series of conversations with my cousins from last summer (9.2011 ish) and I just got around to doing the last two drawings today. We are all adults. One of the points of this, beyond that it makes me laugh, is that a big reason that I’m on the internet is so I can worship Unicorns and Tom Hardy freely.

me: Tom Hardy is My Boy

PrincessCousin: NO HE IS NOT!

me: ha. I know. I was just checking to see if you were paying attention, because you almost never are.

~weeks later~

me: Tom Hardy is our boy.

CousinManlius: Yep!

PrincessCousin: No!

me: oh come on, what are you even going to do with him?

PrincessCousin: (crestfallen)

me: remember when I broke your spirit, just now?

PrincessCousin: yes.

later

me: what about a trade? (I offer up some names)

PrincessCousin: No, I don’t think there is anyone.

me: Ok, I was going to be civilized. Now, WE FIGHT! ~Bronson Style!~

PrincessCousin: What are you going to do? Grease yourself up?

me: I will bring a librarian in here!

(we all laugh)

CousinManlius: (turns to his little sister) We will f*cking roll you.

later

me: (pitifully, desperately) Tom Hardy is my boy?

PrincessCousin: No.

me: *sigh* fine. I’m okay with whatever I am currently doing with him.

PrincessCousin: I can live with that.

oops, I forgot to tag this, so I’ll just reblog it here.

I don’t usually post pictures of my people but these my people have a pretty good understanding of the internet and minimum 80% of us have tumblrs. So, here are some of my cousins and some highlights of December 27th Christmas.

I’ve found very little evidence that anyone else in the world, besides us, plays Hugger Mugger.

I saw that you posted something as I was leaving town but, I couldn&#8217;t get the picture to load, it was worth the wait.

My friend Rickey, dressed as Pee-wee Herman, had the best Halloween treat of all: he met Elvira, got a photo with her and made her laugh. Best photo ever.

"The least expensive type of dinosaur fossil is coprolite, or fossilized dinosaur dung. It’s more decorative than it sounds, and usually costs about $20 to $50. Even more popular and still very affordable are dinosaur eggs, at $400 to $1500. At the next price level, dinosaur skulls range from about $25,000 to $100,000. Complete skeletons are the most expensive of all, from a minimum of $200,000 to the record price of over $8 million paid for the t-rex named Sue now in residence at the Field Museum of Chicago."

[general background: CousinManlius likes to listen to a certain film podcast every week and he likes to see the movie that they review before listening. So, when we went to Drive it put him right on schedule for his listening pleasure.]

me: how was your podcast?

CousinManlius: good, they both liked it, the only thing they couldn’t really agree on was whether Tom Hardy should have been the lead instead.

me: ffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuccccccccccckkkkk. are you messing with me?

CousinManlius: Nope, one of them really thought Tom Hardy would have been better.

me: uuuuuuuggggggghhhhhh.

CousinManlius:…

me:…

(I start breathing again)

me: well, in my brief but intense A Tom Hardy Education, I’ve come to the conclusion that Tom Hardy can make any movie better but, I just don’t know how he could have been better than Gosling in that role. Gosling was a taunt wire, an angelic shark. Gosling was perfect…Hardy can make anything better…

(my brain may still be stuck in this loop.)
