1 boost = 1 thing I think about a lot, probably more than I should

I already said this today, but I would like to repeat: the bad guy from 10 Things I Hate About You was arrested because his cult was selling kombucha without a license (have I been thinking about this all day? Yes)

When I was little I watched an episode of Wishbone that had a little behind-the-scenes segment about foley artists, and they thumped rolls of toilet paper on tile flooring to make the sound of Wishbone running, thumpa thumpa thump there goes the bookish Jack Russell terrier

Blobfish look like totally normal fish when they're swimming around in their own homes, you'd look pretty terrible if you were taken out of your regularly pressured environment and made to fuckin faff around too

Randy Johnson exploding a bird, I think about that a lot

When I was in third grade, I said "here!" when the teacher didn't say "Karen" but said "Erik" and that has stuck with me for some fuckin reason

Strawberries aren't actually berries but bell peppers are

I put a bunch of clocks on my wedding registry because I like clocks and we didn't have any, and multiple people were like, "boy that's .... a lot of clocks"

When my brother was in college, he lived in a house with basically the whole baseball team, and they had couches set up in stadium seating fashion, which struck me as tremendously impressive

Also in third grade, we did a class play of The Shoemaker and the Elves, and I played the shoemaker's wife and complained about having to make cabbage soup all the time but the prop I had was actually lettuce, and I was mad about it the whole time

Alex Trebek put his hand on the small of my back and I did not like it

Y'all know about the Tamam Shud guy? I think about that a lot, and about how one of the things that makes him out of place is the direction of the stripes on his tie

We're literally never going to catch the Zodiac killer

Ron Santo yelling, "he dropped the ball! Oh WHY would he DO THAT” is something I will think about forever

Actually you know what, circling back on the Zodiac, there's a theory that there is no Zodiac killer, and it comes to me out of nowhere at least once a week

Evelyn Waugh was married to a woman who was also named Evelyn, and their friends called them He-Evelyn and She-Evelyn

Like everyone, I think about the Strategic Maple Syrup Reserve a lot

My childhood cat was named Mugwump when we adopted her at the shelter

Mugwump

Shoeless Joe Jackson got screwed, and Kenesaw Mountain Landis should be ashamed of himself

At my brother-in-law's wedding reception, they served lemon sorbet between courses and it was the fanciest fucking thing that's ever happened to me

I went to a St. Paul Saints game in like 2008 and it was Marcel Marceau Night, so now the sentence "Marcel Marceau was in the French Resistance" floats across my brain every few days

I know this is old hat, but how does anyone ever stop thinking about how much Paul Ryan loves Rage Against the Machine

Oh my god remember when we found out Hal Turner was an informant for the FBI???? Oh I think about this a lot

One time my brother was driving me somewhere when I was in high school and "Sometimes" by Britney Spears came on the radio and he did a flawless rendition of the little dance from the video

@Dayglochainsaw nut, fruit, vegetable, and berry all have hilariously divergent botanical and food definitions

@Aleums I will post clocks when I don't have a cat on my lap

@Pixley i don't watch jeopardy but my parents do watch the old people channel so at this point i've seen more trebek in life insurance ads than on the show he's known for

but that's good he was very professional with the exception of inappropriately touching you

@Pixley - Zodiac is probably dead or extremely old and sitting in a nursing home somewhere pooping on himself.

@Pixley this thread makes me happy and proud to know you

@Pixley - The irony present in the Ryan-Rage equation is so thick and so overwhelming that I can never forget it. I still think about it often.

@jacethechicken but the words to their songs, and I say this with love, are just the titles of the songs yelled over and over

@Pixley karen why did the saint paul saints have a marcel marceau night just wondering

@t54r4n1 well, they're the Saint Paul Saints and uhhhhh,,,,,,,,

@Pixley @t54r4n1 I'm going to go with the Bill Murray ownership being a strong influence.

@Pixley how did they make it Marcel Marceau night? I am assuming from your toot that biographical facts were shared?

@tessaracked between innings, they had like, a mime come out and do mime stuff, and also someone told us facts about Marcel Marceau. I think maybe his granddaughter or something was there??

@Pixley the grandfather: a beloved performer. The granddaughter: an heiress with an insatiable hunger for stadium hot dogs. Every season she winds her way across the continent, Marcel Marceau Days heralding her arrival

@brogepi I know!!!!

Also there was a vendor who had a metal thing of freshly fried mini donuts strapped to him, and I think about him yelling "HOT FRESH MINI DONUTS" a lot, that's a bonus one for you

@Pixley This man had a bandolier of hot fresh mini donuts on Marcel Marceau Night

@a_breakin_glass it should be served at all multicourse meals imo

@Pixley Storing that much maple syrup makes me think of the Boston Molasses Disaster

@Pixley There's a punk song about it that I get stuck in my head on a regular basis: m.youtube.com/watch?v=UZnxuPat

@Pixley Canada learned from the Great Molasses Flood the destructive potential of syrups

@Pixley wow, holy shit if I ever forget his gender in a sentence, I’ll use this to dismissively say “oh dear no, I meant his wife, Evelyn.”

@brightneedle my cat, who is a girl, is named for Evelyn Waugh,,,,, but which one?
