Every time she had sex, Laura would blast a movie. “I was trying to be discreet,” she told the hall when we gave her shit about it. We pointed out that you couldn’t be discreet when the movie you blast is always Blue Planet. I mean, who watches the same wildlife documentary over and over? It didn’t take a genius on that one.

Years later, after college, she found out that my friends and I had never seen Blue Planet. “You have to. It’s amazing,” she said. She went and found the disc, but left the room shortly after we started watching it. I followed her.

“What’s wrong?” I asked. “Seen it too often?”

“No, it’s a fantastic documentary. But I was getting a Pavlovian response. From… college.”

I’m back, internets!

I missed you.

And you have welcomed me back with some interesting links, both courtesy of my friend Petra Funkenstein:

1. Sexual Antagonism – A Genetic Theory of Homosexuality. A fascinating theory that while male homosexuality is a genetic detriment to an individual, it’s demonstrably a beneficial gene for the species as a whole.

2. Some bizarre taxidermy art. Warning: not for the faint of heart. If you don’t want to see bizarre things done to dead animal bodies, do not follow the above link.

Later, internets. I missed you.

How Can I Miss You When You Won’t Go Away?

The T wasn’t running anymore when I finally gave up arguing your break-up rationales. One last sleepover meant maybe a noisy goodbye fuck, but I got instead noisy snores. I was trying to spoon your greater height/length when pre-nostalgia hit me. I already missed all your little habits. I missed even your snores.
