I express myself at work with my extensive knowledge of television and film and of weird crap. In short I’m like every other youtube webcam celebrity who has over 20,000 but in real life. I’m kind of a douche, but often I’m rude and interrupt people’s conversations with something witty or just stupid just to come off as funny but sometimes I can’t just help myself. I have verbal diarrhea in that way. I’ve gotten to the point where everyone else at work can make gay jokes but I can’t because they’ll say “settle down” or “shut up that was gross.” I usually say that’s horseshit, how the fuck can they talk about stuff like that, but I can’t. Usually they reply “because for you…it’s real.” Case in point we were at work and somehow New Kids on the Block came up and we were discussing the lyrics to Step by Step. I interjected saying that “Hey guys, wouldn’t be awesome if they had an ABC’s Step by Step reunion show featuring a guest appearance by New Kids singing Step by Step. You know, that family sitcom that had Patrick Duffy from Dallas and Suzanne Sommers from Three’s Company?”
Complete silence. It was broken by an awkward moment later by saying “Dude, why the fuck are you working here? Why aren’t writing the TV section of Trivial Pursuit?”
Other ways I express myself. Buying unique shit that common people don’t have. I don’t mean interests that differ for people, I mean stuff that most people probably haven’t even heard of. I mean I have this fucking thing and one of these ipod cases as my ipod case. I’m not a tech whore or one who wants to be ahead of the game, but enough to garner some vain attention sometimes. I was one of the first people in my town when I was young (perhaps only) to have a minidisc player.
