» I just don't get it

This may have been said, I haven't been through all 11 pages, but what's up with life?
It's mostly unpleasant: as soon as enough intelligence dawns to examine existance, examination reveals that the only reason to continue with it is that it might get better, as if that's going to happen.

/Still going along with it, don't know why

When no one is about
I sing to the cat.
Specifically: pop-songs re-written for psycho-kitty Millie, as in:
"She's a Millie,
a dime for a dozen kitty-cat,
why would I lie about that?
She's just a kitty-cat!"
(to The Tubes' "She's A Beauty")

» I just don't get it

When I was a kid 7, 8 years old
My friend told me that there was this movie which consisted of nothing but people walking around naked and every other word was a four-letter word. It was clear that he wasn't talking about pornography: this was a feature film... I always had one eye out for this gem.

As an adult I finally pieced together that he was telling me this as a result of overhearing his Mom complaining about the trash in American cinima in these modern times (this would be the '70's)... I can just hear his mother bitching about all the naked people and foul language.

It took me long enough to hear it, though.
