Friday Conundrums

I.

I wonder if anyone besides me self-censored their entry for this article for fear of who might read it. Ha ha, no, just kidding, my numerous ex-girlfriends! I love you all.

II.

A movie that is 24 minutes long is called a "short". A TV show that is 24 minutes long is more or less exactly the right length, given the standards of current network television. A song that is 24 minutes long would be considered intolerably lengthy by most peoples' standards. But what about fucking that is 24 minutes long?

III.

I am totally fascinated by non-verbal communications cues, like rubbing your chin as a sign of contemplation, or tilting your head back and looking at the ceiling when you're trying to remember something. But by far my favorite are ones that evolved out of stagecraft and are still used even though they have no sensible referent anymore, like throwing your hat down to express anger or frustration, or describing abstract figures in the dust with the toe of your shoe to indicate sheepishness. Awesome.

THE END.
