Possibly, I'm Insane

It depends on my mood

The last thirty or so miles of the drive here is one-lane road. It is very stressful, because in order to pass someone you have to pass into oncoming traffic. My friend was super-impressed by my oncoming-traffic-passing skills, since that’s not something you do a whole lot of in New England. I was like, “You know what helps for this? INCEPTION MUSIC.”

The strip club near the Memphis Airport does midget wrestling, so never again will I say there’s nothing to do around here, k?

Passed a billboard asking if Jesus was in me. Had a discussion about HOW MANY billboards are Jesus-themed as you continue to drive south. Tried to determine what they’re thinking when they put those billboards up. Like, do they think us godless liberals from the north will suddenly be like, “Wait—*is* Jesus in me?”

Scenes from My Road Trip



(Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Midnight. Sitting in traffic.)
Me: I don’t understand why there’s traffic.
My friend: Because they have a lane closed up ahead.
Me: Right. But it’s midnight. It’s MIDNIGHT. Why are all these people in cars right now?
My friend: I don’t know.
Me: The entire population of Pittsburgh is on this road, trying to get through this tunnel, at midnight. WHY?
My friend: Is this just overnight construction?
Me: Yeah, it said 10 pm to 6 am, or something. Why?
My friend: Look at all the orange buckets and blinking signs and arrows and cones and everything else they have set up.
Me: Yeah.
My friend: So how long do you think it takes them every night to set up all that stuff?
Me: …
My friend: And then they have to take it all down every morning.
Me: …
My friend: Do you think they even get any construction done, ever, in between putting out orange buckets and taking down orange buckets?
Me: …

I SAW HOW THEY DO IT ONCE.  So it’s this big truck, and it has all the cones on it, as well as about half a dozen guys, and one of the guys sits on the back of the truck, his legs hanging off.  And the truck moves real slow, and every couple of feet, he drops down another orange cone.  Ta-da!

(I do not know why it took six guys to perform this stunning feat of excellence, though.)

Well, they can’t do any construction stuff until all the orange stuff is up, so they might as well ride along!

My folks live in Kentucky; if you think “Caskets” is an odd town name, let me tell you about Possum Hollow (pronounced “holler”). Or the fun (and real!) people names like Cousin Herky (yes, with an H), Aunt Eerie or Bad Hair Johnson. I have stories.

It sounds like you should be writing some memoirs!

Rules: Just insert your answers to the questions below & tag at least 10 followers

  • Name: Classified. But it was once the name of a Bond girl, to give you a hint. 
  • Nickname: My name can actually be easily shortened to just its first syllable. My family does this CONSTANTLY, and many of my closest friends, and I totally don’t mind. I once had one of the partners at work do it at the end of our VERY FIRST CONVERSATION and I got *super* offended, like, “YOU DON’T KNOW ME WELL ENOUGH TO SHORTEN MY NAME YET, SIR. YOU WILL NEVER KNOW ME WELL ENOUGH TO SHORTEN MY NAME.” In my head, it was all very dramatic. 
  • Birthday: June 8
  • Gender: Female
  • Sexuality: Straight
  • Height: 5’2 and a quarter
  • Time zone: Ugh - most of the time I’m Central time these days - let’s not talk about it
  • What time and date is it there: It’s 9:22 am on Sunday, August 31, 2014 (in case you thought I might be a year ahead or behind)
  • Average hours of sleep I get each night: 7
  • OTPs: Sherlock and John, Ten and Rose waybackwhen, Mycroft and Lestrade, Arthur and Eames 
  • The last thing I Googled was: This is boring, it was “one-pot pasta” for the dinner I made last night. 
  • First word that comes to mind: Lasagna. Which wasn’t what I made last night, but I was thinking of pasta and Doctor Who and there you have it. 
  • What I last said to a family member: “Love you.” We end all of our phone conversations with “love you,” just in case it’s the last time we talk. YES, WE ARE MORBID. 
  • One place that makes me happy and why: Boston. It’s home. I understand the people there and they understand me. Its frustrations are things I can handle because they’ve balanced out with its benefits. Everyone complains a lot, and I appreciate that. The restaurants are good and varied, there’s always a lot to do, the skyline is lovely, the air is always tinted with ocean, there’s a subway, it’s small and compact and you could walk it, the airport is right downtown and is a quick flight to Europe, and a few hours’ drive will bring you anywhere from skiing to the seashore to New York City. 
  • How many blankets I sleep under: I prefer to sleep under many, many blankets. It’s actually hard these days to get the house cold enough to where I am happy. I always have a blanket and a comforter on my bed, and I have an extra blanket as well, but these days the extra blanket never gets used, and the comforter’s actually too much but I think I like its cave-making abilities. Like, I can pull it up over my head dramatically. 
  • Favourite beverage: Tea, hot or iced
  • The last movie I watched in the cinema was: What If. It was sweet and cute and Daniel Radcliffe is as charming as you’d expect. 
  • Three things I can’t live without: The Internet, my computer, tea. 
  • Something I plan on learning: how to play the harp. I swear to God, I am going to get serious about this ANY DAY NOW. 
  • A piece of advice for all my followers: Be kind to yourself. Other people won’t always be, so make sure you lead the charge there. 
  • You have to listen to this song: Oh, God, I go through SUCH PHASES with songs, I will listen to the same song OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER. Hmm. Right now I think it’s Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s version of La Valse A Mille Temps
  • My blog(s): I have a Tumblr, an LJ, and a Twitter all under this name. You can also stalk me as @skylardorset on Tumblr, Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook.

Irene says that Sherlock never responds to her flirting, which in any universe would mean that he’s not interested, but because John can find a way of being jealous of LITERALLY ANYthing with Sherlock he makes it into something he can be jealous of like he ALWAYS RESPONDS TO ME WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT HE DOESN’T RESPOND TO YOU, IS THIS LOVE, like. honestly john. really. look at what you’re saying.

Scenes from My Road Trip

  • Just south of Louisville, we decided to stop at a Wendy's. BAD MISTAKE. TERRIBLE MISTAKE. We waited behind this woman who took FIFTEEN MINUTES just to PLACE AN ORDER AT WENDY'S. I know, because I was texting during the ordeal, so I could time it. AND DO YOU KNOW WHAT SHE WANTED? TWO SANDWICHES. BUT SHE ORDERED THESE SANDWICHES IN THE WORLD'S MOST CONFUSING WAY, WITH ALL THESE SPECIAL ADD-ONS AND SUBTRACTIONS. YOU ARE AT WENDY'S. WHAT ARE YOU DOING. IT IS *FAST FOOD.* Seriously, at times like these, I decide I am the least high-maintenance person in the history of time. Did you hear that, Benedict? You'd be lucky to have me.
  • The Wendy's where we stopped was in the same plaza as a store called Caskets Kentucky. So I guess we should have known.
