Why Do I Live With these people?

  • Kathleen: I have just searched a tag on AO3 without specifying fandom and been confronted with the truly startling number of One Direction fanfics.
  • El: Liana, is the silly hats/horse racing thing something you know about? Why is that a thing?
  • Liana: No idea. Hats are because it's hot as balls and you gotta keep the sun off and I assume the silliness just sprung from there. I have no idea I don't pretend to understand.
  • Kathleen: Based of the British royal family imma guess that proper ladies wear them the sillier the more proper
  • El: I'll have to google this shit then. ...Apparently it's just a rule that if it's a ridiculous "old money" outdoor occasion you need a ludicrous hat.
  • Liana: Because you had to keep the sun off and then people got creative.
  • El: I feel like most things that involve old money and creativity ends in disaster.
  • E: Apparently I associate mint juleps with racism.
  • Kathleen: I feel like everybody probably does.
  • Liana: Some people associate them with horse racing.
  • Kathleen: I associate horse racing with racists or mobsters. Also silly hats.
  • Kathleen: I just got an email from Petco saying they got my application. ...Which I sent in last may.
  • El: Did anybody know Sondheim's gay? Because I didn't.
  • Kathleen: Isn't West Side Story Sondheim's? 'Cuz if it is i did not know specifically but I would have put money on that person being gay.
  • El: What if I make candy?
  • Kathleen: that sounds like a really good way to melt some cooking supplies.
  • El: "As a theme, cannibalism has a long and respectable history." I chose the right topic for my research paper
  • El: Doughnut completion has been pushed back due to my magic oil powers.
  • Kathleen: She put water in the oil and it blew up.
  • El: I do stupid things sometimes.
  • Kathleen: If I was ever in a situation where I faced desperate odds with a group of people I feel like at some point I'd have to stop and organize us all so we could stand in line and squint out into the distance.
  • Kathleen: So I was walking back from the pub tonight down this long dark road and I saw a light in a field and my first thought was aww will of the wisp and then my second thought was oh fuck faeries and then I remembered the really dark brown donkey right beside my hostel on the river and I though oh fuck puca or kelpie shit and then I panicked until I got to it and avoided eye contact as I walked around it and thats the story of how the combination of my low tolerance and my paranoia make one pint of cider too much for me to handle
