I’ve been alienating people since I was three.
He may not fit society’s definition of a hero, but he is the hero I needed. The hero who helped me recover from the disaster of my failed almost-marriage and get back into the game. He lives in the shadows. Is he a dream? Truth? Fiction? Damnation? Salvation? He is all these things and none of them. He is — The Naked Man.

You know who is confused? Bimbos. They’re easily confused. It’s one of the thousand little things I love about them. I love their vacant, trusting stares; their sluggish, unencumbered minds; their unresolved daddy issues. I love them Lily, and they love me. Bimbos have always been there for me, through thick and thin—mostly thin. B-man don’t do thick crust, what up!

The problem with acting normal is that normal people get into stupid situations.
— Dexter, “Love, American Style”
We’re adults. When did that happen? And how do we make it stop?
— Meredith Grey, “Shake Your Groove Thing”
You know those people who can predict when change is coming in their life? I’m not one of them. Change has a way of just walking up and punching me in the face.
— Vernonica, “You Think You Know Somebody”
This is a low moment for the Barnacle. I should be off playing laser-tag right now but instead … don’t look at me, I’m hideous…I’m a Ted! I’m wearing elastic waste fleece pants.
— Barney, “How Lily Stole Christmas”
Care to share what you two free-spirited lads were up to? I’ll give you a hint: it was squalid.
— Veronica Mars, “Of Vice and Men”
One of the twenty-four similarities between girls and fish is that they’re both attracted to shiny objects. You really never read my blog, do you?
