Y’know those really boring days when your internet’s out, you’re in a place with no books, your phone’s dead, and you’re forced to entertain yourself using only My Pictures and Desktop Files, meandering through the archives of the past year of laptop-ownership?
Actually, 1) the first part sounds kind of like the beginning to a bad horror movie, and 2) that might not happen to anyone else. But I needed a hook.
(And now I segue* into the explanation of how that actually relates to the rest of the post.)
Well, this did not happen to me. But I was looking for a picture of Neil Patrick Harris a la Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog for an essay I’m writing in English class (“The Three Movies That Best Reflect the Human Condition“– don’t ask, but yes, DHSAB is one of them. LOL), and ended up going through my folders looking at pictures.
All I can say is…. it’s been an interesting year.
