Overheard in the car

Drugs and drinking will ruin people’s lives, Janie.

I know.

I mean, look at _____. One of the smartest people I ever knew and then she started drinking and then was addicted to drugs. She ruined her life.


Yeah. And where is she now? She’s dead.

She is not dead.

No, she isn’t. She’s in California.

    I thought everyone in California was drunk and/or dead…?

    Also, yes. Lucy Lawless on BSG. I still have not seen the finale. It feels incomplete.

    no, some of us are just surfing. and that doesn’t even count the alcoholic zombie surfers.

    I only started getting BSG DVDs (pdq!) a few months ago, never watched it on “broadcast.” We just finished season 3. so freaking cool… so here’s one I JUST MADE UP: where do trish helfer and lucy lawless go to get their hair done? A BEAUTY CYLON! oh man I am so the funniest person I ever met. then again I was raised by shadows in a big cardboard box.

    The above was Augustus’ joke in reply. I especially enjoy that in these few short months he has picked up some Internet chatting lingo.

    do you read the “overheard” sites – “.. in NY,” .. in the office”, etc? no lucy lawless, but pretty funny anyway…

    I have read the main one – overheard in NY. not in a while, though…I’ll have to go back and check out what I’ve been missing. 🙂

    if dead means going to california, i will promptly get mahself dead. i wonder, if i were to bring my family would i have to kill them too?

    that explains a LOT of things.
