Thank you, Patriots, for reminding me why I don't follow football. My home team are a fucking disappointment.

Don't be glum, chum! Only 60 more sleeps until the Sox come back!

Yes, but until April 5th I'm focusing my need for vicarious violence on the Bruins...who will hopefully not suck for the rest of the season. Because then I may need to cut a bitch. (I comfort myself with the fact that the Bruins are fourth in the league right now while the Leafs are thirteenth, much to the dismay of the mountie, I'm sure.)

Heh heh heh yeah it's great. Fourth in the league, second in the conference and first in the division! I love it! And hey, he should be used to his dismay where Toronto teams are concerned by now ;)

Especially the Leafs. I mean...they're the Leafs for Christ's sake. But, you know, the Sox weren't great last year. They were still better than the Jays but not by much. I'm only cautiously hopeful there.

...but yeah. I do see your point. Not that I'll ever admit it to anyone else. But Crawford's going to come around this year, and what with Bailey joining the rotation, and the fact we may end up with Jackson, our pitching looks to improve, at least.

Although really, as long as we do better than the Orioles and the Jays, I'll be satisfied.

You realize Garrison can read this and he's likely the one you don't want to admit it to, right? Flawed plan there, love.

Hopefully. Sometimes I'm fairly certain the Sox are being re-cursed. Sort of like a joke. "Oh, I'll let you off the hook here but then once your hopes are up I'm going to reassert myself and dash all optimism you might have."

Sometimes it's good to have lower standards.

I figured I should give him something to crow about. Since his own sports life is so pathetic and all that. Figured he'd take his victories anywhere he could get them, even if it means debasing myself in public ;)

BITE YOUR TONGUE! You need to go outside, turn around three times, and spit and curse!

This is true.

That's very kind of you. This self-sacrificing thing is new for you. How does it feel on?

Outside the flat or outside the building?

I hear many women find it useful in dating. ;)

It's rather itchy.

Outside the building! Because if your spit freezes it's even better for warding off evil!

I've heard this too...

I'm sure some medicated powder would help with that.

Now you're just making things up and trying to pass them off as superstitions.

I'm not sure how that works out, though. I'd imagine one would end up spending one's time with numerous annoying, irritating, frustrating or otherwise subpar individuals. Not a particularly effective plan. Unless you're just after sex. But then you're probably getting a log of really bad sex and that's just not worth it.

Or some alcohol...

I am not! It's a proven fact!

Yes, I imagine you're right. I'm wondering if it also has something to do with having hope that even though you've lowered your standards you'll find a diamond in the rough or some such term people use in those circumstances?

Or that, aye.

I require textual evidence to support your claim.

I think it has more to do with women having a thing for thinking they can "fix" a man. I suppose it's possible some men have that and it's probably not specific to what gender they are fixing so much as the gender they are attracted to per orientation. Anyway, I think that's it. Which is an absolutely shite way of going about anything. No one should ever have a project boyfriend or a project girlfriend. If you don't like them as is then move the fuck on. Sure, no one loves everything about another person or even about themselves. Yes, they may change, evolve or otherwise improve upon flaws or undesirable qualities. But you can't bank on it and it's not even really that likely. So what the fuck is the attraction to fixing people?

I have textual evidence! It's from a West Wing episode, from season four, an episode called Election Night.

I'm really the last person who can tell you an answer to the question 'what the fuck is the attraction to fixing people'... you know this, right? I know *nothing* about fixing people nor do I really have much desire to. I am thoroughly in the 'if you don't like them as is then move the fuck on' camp, believe me!

A TV show does not count as evidence of superstition. Especially when it's playing off a real superstition. Try again, honeysuckle.

Maybe we should bring it down to the wisdom of rappers the world over. Bitches be crazy.

Damn! Okay I have nothing then. *sad* I so wanted to Read the wall of your building and see you turning and cursing and spitting though!

This is time-tested wisdom! I highly approve.

Which brings our current totals somewhere along the lines of V - 1142, A - 786!

Aye, sounds accurate to me.
