A Very Moving Dialogue About The Admirable Qualities of Mr. Peanut vs. Mr. Moneybags

Posted by Gin on September 28, 2010

Gin
[11:40] Know what you should bring back?
[11:40] Canes. 

¡THAT’S A LOT OF TACOS!
[11:40] Top hats? 

Gin
[11:41] Monocles.
[11:41] Basically, Mr. Peanut. 

¡THAT’S A LOT OF TACOS!
[11:43] Mr Moneybags from Monopoly. 

Gin
[11:43] I prefer Mr. Peanut. He seems more personable, IMHO
¡THAT’S A LOT OF TACOS!
[11:51] so, the anthropomorphic peanut seems more personable to you than the actual human? 

Gin
[11:51] He’s cuter.
[11:51] I want to put him in my pocket and carry him around with me.
[11:52] 1) Do you remember his dancing from the commercial featuring whatever song that went “S! A! T-U-R! D-A-Y! NIGHT!“. Dude’s got moves.
[11:52] 2) And he’ll always have snacks.
[11:53] Also, Moneybags does not have a monocle 

¡THAT’S A LOT OF TACOS!
[11:55] He doesn’t wear a monocle because it’s too low-class.
[11:55] He has TRANSCENDED monocles. 

Gin
[11:55] He’s probably also transcended snack food. AND I LIKE SNACKS.
[11:56] Mr. Peanut is less pretentious.
[11:57] Who would you rather have at your party:
[11:57] A dude that brings snacks and has badass moves onthe dance floor
[11:57] Or a dude that just shows up with a bunch of money and attitude
[11:58] He will prob look down on your booze
[11:58] And find your home unsatisfactory
[11:59] Then he’ll buy it and charge you ridiculous rent
[11:59] And you’d go bankrupt
[11:59] MR. PEANUT WOULD NEVER DO THAT TO YOU 

¡THAT’S A LOT OF TACOS!
[12:09] I prefer Moneybags. He’s a playuh. 

Gin
[12:10] But it’s like, his personality relies totally on the money
[12:10] What happens when he loses it all on the stock market?
[12:10] Who’s Mr. Playuh then?
[12:11] THAT’S RIGHT, NO ANSWER. 

¡THAT’S A LOT OF TACOS!
[12:11] But no one’s allergic to Moneybags. 

Gin
[12:12] Ouch.

He’s a bad mamma jamma.

That’s right – where are your friends now?

New digs, y’all.

And so, after many, MANY months of bitching about wanting to do it, and several, SEVERAL months of actually squatting on this URL but not doing anything with it, I have made the switch to WordPress. I am still figuring this junk out, and not all of my stuff has moved over, but THANK ZEUS, this format should be easier to read (red background? What was I thinking? Y’all. I expect you to tell me such things, much in the same way that I’d expect you to tell me if I had shit in my teeth or if I was hanging out of my shirt.)

Also, I left BOTH PAIR of my glasses at work, so now I have a headache from doing all this shit sans corrective lenses, and I am cranky. I realize now why rich people have lackeys do this kind of stuff for them. I could be soaking in a bath right now, and also all this squinting is not making me look any younger.

But I’m ready for a change. I’ve BEEN ready for a change. And my hair is too short to do anything with, so.

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life.

I have been terribly busy today. Obviously.

Note: !THAT’S A LOT OF TACOS! is my friend C. I just changed his IM handle to !THAT’S A LOT OF TACOS! on my friends list because I found it much more entertaining. Imagine if in the middle of a horrid workday, a window popped up with a message from !THAT’S A LOT OF TACOS!. Wouldn’t that non sequitur make your day a little bit better? I think it would.


[14:33]

Gin: I’m going to have business cards printed

And they will be blank, except for my name, and underneath:

[14:34]

Gin: Ninja/Badass

And when people ask for my card

i will hand it to them

And they will read it

And by the time they get to “ninja”

They will look up, and I will have disappeared

And then they will know.

!THAT’S A LOT OF TACOS!: You did not just make that up.

[14:35]

Gin: I swear to God I did.

!THAT’S A LOT OF TACOS!: Shut up.

Gin: I PROMIS I JUST MADE THAT UP

I SWEAR ON WEE KITTEN GEORGE’S LIFE

!THAT’S A LOT OF TACOS!: You win today.

[14:36]

Gin: BECAUSE I AM AWESOME.
