    When the noob goes to court with a shiny new racket, but the ball flies way off into thick brambly bushes, then that noob, growing cross screams and wails up a racket as the bystanders laugh him to the lowest noob bracket.

    Music is the happiest thing in the world, and the easiest way (for me) to simulate emotions. Certain sound patterns can take the brain and rewire it and make Haskell seem a bit more bearable.

  • wobster109 commented on the post, desk 7 years, 4 months ago

    I remember the dark-brown short little desks we used in fourth grade. They had a big drawer attached to them, and I’d put things in my desk. Somehow the desks seem set in a dark, gray room where I was bored and cranky.

  • wobster109 commented on the post, entice 7 years, 4 months ago

    Hmm? This sounds like a trap. The Venus Flytrap with its bright colors and weird rotting smells, or whatever it is that attracts flies, drawing them in and then eating them! What kind of plant eats animals! And […]

    When the rattlesnake chokes on the baby’s rattle, it gives its death rattle not from its throat, but from its rattle, and the rattle of its rattle does serve to tattle of the end that befell the snake by a rattle.

    Bittens are baby bats, just like kittens are baby cats. And vampire bat babies are called vampire bittens. If a bat bites a baby and the bat was tiny, then you can say, the baby was bitten by a baby bat bitten.

  • wobster109 commented on the post, puddle 7 years, 4 months ago

    Puddles are little pockets of rainbows and mirrors. I remember a very powerful sentence from an internet person who said, in regards to Noah’s Arc, “there should’ve been rainbows all over the damn place.” It was […]

  • wobster109 commented on the post, pins 7 years, 4 months ago

    Well they’re spiky. I wish I’d had pins this morning to pin up my dress before I sewed it up. It would have been really helpful to hold the cloth in place first. But things worked out well enough. I can’t buy too […]

  • wobster109 commented on the post, heartache 7 years, 4 months ago

    What kind of silly word is this? This is just like asking for a whole bunch of stories about broken hearts and broken romances. Everyone has those. As unique and poignant as they all feel, very few are any […]

  • wobster109 commented on the post, flip 7 years, 4 months ago

    Mental image produces a penny flying through the air against a black background, and then a sarcastic voice saying “on the flip side”. What is the flip side of a penny? Is it whichever side lands facing up? Is […]

  • wobster109 commented on the post, trunk 7 years, 5 months ago

    Every tree has a trunk, but some are small and thin while others are large and old. Trunks of trees are then used to make trunks for storage, like chests. Elephants have trunks, but not of wood. Men wear trunks […]

  • wobster109 commented on the post, pastel 7 years, 5 months ago

    When I was younger, pastel things always seemed so pretty: bright, happy colors. But then they began to seem cookie-cutter. Like all the plastic flower and pony stickers. They didn’t capture the depth in the […]

  • wobster109 commented on the post, transport 8 years ago

    It’s fairly easy to get from point A to point B in today’s world, but still difficult enough that it is troublesome. Things are very happy, because when I want to visit a dear friend, I can just hop on a train or a bus and appear there. But sometimes, they live continents away, and […]

  • wobster109 commented on the post, remember 8 years, 2 months ago

    This is general enough that nothing specific comes to mind. What i remember changes from day to day; the most prominent memories change from season to season. I’m guilty of usually remembering most clearly insignificant things that some boy or other does. Isn’t that silly? Today, it’s some boy looking up and saying that he […]

  • wobster109 commented on the post, mint 8 years, 2 months ago

    I hate them! I can taste a tiny bit of mint in a whole lot of chocolate, or a tiny sprig of cilantro in a whole bowl of soup, or a fragment of basil in a whole plate of noodles, and the whole family of plant makes food taste like lab chemicals. Lab chemicals and […]

  • wobster109 commented on the post, route 8 years, 7 months ago

    Rargh I need to go on a rant! Everything I do is like a stupid dating sim game, only more complicated, but no matter what happens, I always get the same stupid route. It’s always the same storyline, and it’s always a bad end, always always. I always end up developing some stupid crush on […]

  • wobster109 commented on the post, split 8 years, 7 months ago

    This is a word that is at once sweet and bittersweet. It is sweet because it is tied to the noun phrase “banana split,” which is a very sweet and delicious thing. But more often, people think of people splitting, or leaving, or going to be apart. It is sad to part from a dear […]

  • wobster109 commented on the post, closed 8 years, 8 months ago

    Is it bad that the first thing that comes to mind is closed and open spaces, like topological spaces? And after that, closed windows. Why? Because mine NEVER STAY CLOSED. . . and bugs get in. . . and they fly into the lighting and die, and their bodies pile up in there. It’s not […]

  • wobster109 commented on the post, affection 8 years, 8 months ago

    It’s easy to be affectionate about the world when your ears are full of song and your heart full of love. For too long, I’ve been taking Brownian walks and festering in my thoughts of gloom. It really takes sitting down and listening to music to fix that. Something feels odd, like I’m using music […]

  • wobster109 commented on the post, average 8 years, 9 months ago

    I’m very hungry, but I’m too lazy to make food. This sounds like the most average story ever. A great many college students probably spend their lives hungry, sleepy, unwashed, and customarily late. I ought to do homework, but instead, I’m procrastinating by writing about procrastinating. This is all stuff that everyone’s heard many times […]
