Banderas was in love with me and we ran away to the Italian countryside
and lived in this fabulous villa there and grew grapes.
Me, later: Why is that grape/villa quote funny?
Cola: i can just see her dream. it'd be like one of those i can't believe
it's not butter ads only with antonio instead of fabio. they had been
parted from their love because of the cholesterol but now that they have a
chemically laden fatty spread to put on their toast, they can be swept
away by emotion and go to their villa where they grow grapes b/c wine
reduces the risk of heart disease.
cola: ::talking about the french ppl who want to give her a web internship
me: ::putting chapstick on, dropping it, trying to cap it, dropping it
again, flinging chapstick components around room uncontrollably::

As I lay gazing at my astropop,
Dreaming of its faux fruity flavorness,
I thought, "I love you so, I just can't stop
Remembering that night in Inverness.
I looked past frozen matzah in the fridge
And lo, your orange glow beamed out at me;

The taste of you will make me beg for more.
And now I ask myself, "What is the use?
You'll simply make me snarf astropop juice."
