The Hobbit


The Shire is so BORING. Boring boring boring. Plus all the chicks are so short!
---------
The old dude wants me to throw a party for some dwarves. Couldn't hurt. Plus I'm gonna get WASTED.
---------
Last time I drank that much I wound up still in the tavern ...... keeper's wife! ZING!
---------
Crap. I seem to have been fandangled into a daring adventure to some mountain. Do I have to?
---------
Walking walking walking ....
---------
Still walking - this is so boring!
---------
Stopped and ate at Elf City. Must everyone ALWAYS ask me if I have a normal sized penis? Do elves have normal sized ears? No. STFU.
---------
Walking....
---------
Oh shit! This hobbit is on crack and he has a magic ring that makes you INVISIBLE!
---------
Got the ring. Man that guy was crazy! Probably not connected to this sweet magic ring, right?
---------
Walking some more. Do these dwarves never get tired of walking? At least I've got this pretty precious, swweet, wonderful, amazing ring.
---------
Waaaaalllllkkkiiiinnnn! Oh wait. Stopped to eat.
---------
Eating a sandwich - really good.
---------
Taking a shit - really good.
---------
Goddamn it. We're walking again. Deep forests. Endless mountains. Bad reception.
---------
First, let me tell you about the sky .... and then the tree line .... and then the ground .... zzzzzzz
---------
Walking still
---------
Eating again
---------
OH SHIT! A HUGE BATTLE. IF ONLY THIS HAD HAPPENED EARLIER. I WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN SO FUCKING BORED!


Of Mice and Men


Nothing beats hanging out with a ret -...idiot, all day. How did I get stuck with Rain Man? Minus the superhuman talent, that is.
---------
Lennie killed some mice. Great. It's kind of ironic, because compared to a smart guy like me, he's kind of a mouse, isn't he?
---------
Come to think of t, it is pretty funny, because, you know, I am a MAN, and they are MICE, and Lennie is kind of BOTH. Get it?
---------
Need to find work. Ret- .... Lennie here dooesn't know
---------
Do they call it the Great Depression because everyone's depressed?
---------
We found a ranch to work at. Lennie's none too bright but he's good with his hands.
---------
Playing cards all day. The rancher's son is n asshole, but his wife is a pretty swell girl. Also a party girl.
---------
@Lennie dammit you know groping women is illegal. It's 1925 man, women have rights now, They're equal. Kind of.
---------
Now Lennie's in trouble. How can you accuse a guy when he doesn't know his boner from a hole in the ground.
---------
Lennie broke the owner's son's hand, which was kind of funny because the bones just popped out of his hand.
---------
Lennie just wants to live off the fat of the land. Working like a dog in a rock and roll band.
---------
Lennie came back into the cabin with that look on his face and I said "Lennie did you kill another woman?"
---------
He told me he thought he'd done it again. Why do I get stuck with the dangerously disabled? Did Forrest Gump ever hurt anyone?
---------
I hear the lynch mob outside. This is the third time this year we gotta go. 'cause Lennie made a mess of things.
---------
I can't deal with this shit anymore. Lennie is the anti-poon.
---------
I'm going to do what I shoulda long time ago, shoot this ret- ... friend in the head. Otherwise the mob will torture him. He deserves a quick death.
---------
He is my friend though. But I have to do it. The law won't euthanize the disabled here, and Texas is too far away.

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn


Seems like as soon as a fella comes into a bit o' money everyone comes out of the woodwork after it.
---------
These ladies wants to sivilize me? ore like reverse gold-dig my fame and fortune. @FencinTom: Get me outta here!
---------
Escaped the house, but my drunkard Pap showed up . I reckon he is all kinds of bad for my development, lockin me up in his cabin and all.
---------
I just want to be free and have adventures and whatever. Also keep Pap's hands off my damn money.
---------
Faked my own death. Headin' down the Mississippi. Ran into the gold-digger' former slave Jim, trying to escape to Illinois.
---------
Not sure how I feel about this. Don't think a slave ought to escape on account of his being vital property and all.
---------
Found a house floating on the river. Jim found a body but won't tell me who it was. Probably not a big deal.
---------
You know, the more I talk to Jim, the more I get to thinkin' 'Boy these Negroes is just like other folks. Maybe they shouldn't be owned.'
---------
Tired out going in drag. Don't really want to talk about it. Long story short: being a lady is much more than a pretty dress.
---------
OH WTF THEY SHOT MY ONLY FRIEND! CAN'T TWEET TOO UPSET. FUCK, FUCK, FUCK.
---------
Picked up two guys. One says he's the King of France, other an English duke. Weird. Why would royalty move to America to become scam artists?
---------
The goddamned king went and sold Jim. Some friend. I really thought I could trust him being French and all.
---------
In a pretty convenient twist of fate, it turns out Jim got sold to Tom Sawyer's relations.
---------
They think I'm Tom. Tom came - he says he's my brother. Tom has hatched an elaborate plot to free Jim.
---------
Sprang Jim out. He's free, I'm free, all seems well.
---------
Oh wait, Jim was already free by order of the law, and Tom knew it. He just wanted to have an adventure.LOL.

Twilight


I'm a teenage girl, hoping to make friends at a new school in a new town. This should be fascinating Oh the weather sucks.
---------
Wow. I'm all of a sudden really popular! This is a twist., isn't it? Oh except this TOTALLY HOT guy says I smell bad.
---------
He makes vulgar, offensive faces a me with his wanton, profound eyes. It's a cliche for me to fall. But why fight it? He is so very fine.
---------
His face burns in my mind, and his hand seem crafted by God himself. I surrender.
---------
I knew it. He just wants to be friends
---------
So I'm out walking and BAM! a car almost runs me over except my new 'friend' shoves it out of the way with his bare hands!
---------
Hey , anyone know what disease causes frigid skin, no need for food, and fear of light? Vitiligo universalis, like MJ had? Or is it death?
---------
Pretty boy is a vampire. A bit obvious, but I still feel a hormonal pull. He's a pussy magnet.
---------
Today I asked him if he only liked me because of my tits. He said no, it's the smell of my blood. FML
---------
I like him 'cause he can read everyone's mind, but not mine. Maybe if he stopped staring at my tits .... I don't care. He's so dreamy.
---------
He says he's part of a no-killing-humans club. I hope he's not just saying this to get me into bed.
---------
A bad vampire tried to kill me. He threatened to murder my mother too. See? There is some action in my story.
---------
The bad vampire managed to bite me but my guy took him out and cured me. That was resolved quickly. Well, now we can be together.
---------
I hope he doesn't bite during sex. That would really suck.
---------
Oh what do I tell my family? You can't introduce a vampire the same way you introduce an artist or a vagrant.
---------
Since he is a vampire and I am a human, we'll have to work at our relationship. I'm ready to make sacrifices, but not BE sacrificed. Clear?
---------
My life lately has been a bit like a lonely girl's slightly creepy juvenile sex fantasy. But at least it really happened!!
---------
@YounGirls: if a guy is hot enough, it's OK if he's also a blood-sucking creep. Completely subordinate yourself and accommodate him. Worth it.
---------
Good thing this happened. Otherwise it would just have been a 40 yr old me, a bottle of cheap wine and a whole bag of issues.
