Liz Lemon and The Hunger Games.
Robbie dared me to put a random Arrested Development quote on a typical serious fandom graphic (complete with a skinny font!), so I came up with this. I’m going to call this idea “A Hungry Development”.
Or The Fighter or The King’s Speech. I’m totally not spiteful or anything.
THE COBB NOLAN SAGA
My roommate and I have a fish named Cobb Nolan. He is a blue betta fish and when we bought him we named him thus as a challenge. We decided that if he stayed alive for more than ten days, he would not only keep his name, but it would prove that Cobb ends up in reality (for our own personal satisfaction, of course; we honor the ambiguity of Chris Nolan’s vision (and talk about Inception as if it’s real life). It’s been a month and we’re happy to report that Cobb’s still alive and kicking.
Cobb’s wife is Mal and she is a bamboo plant (not a palm xx) and they are utterly in love. When we first put them side-by-side, he stared at her for two hours and now tends to swim on the right side of the tank. We have different people plant-and-fish-sitting them over winter break so we gave Mal over last night (number four on the instructions for her care says “DON’T let her lose track of reality!!”) and Cobb FREAKED THE FUCK OUT, swam frantically around his tank, then settled to the bottom and lay there, morose and still, for some time. We tried to console him in French but it didn’t really work so eventually we found a red die, put it next to his tank, and then he began to drift back into life and looked a little happier.
This has been another installment of: “My Life Is Inception.” You are now free to move about the plane, but please return to your seats when the seat-belt light comes back on.
