Then, Out Of The Box Came Thing Two And Thing One!  
The Kids at therapy are so fucking adorable. I just want to give them cookies and scruff up their hair. (I called them The Kids because they are both 19 and have the same first name i.e. ‘Kid’. It's kind of like they are Thing 1 and 2. OMG, I could call them Thing 1 and Thing 2!!)


Thing 1 is really into fantasy novels and has started reccing books to me. He is a super adorkable too, doesn't care if he acts silly or whatever. He also plays the drums, which I double-checked how old he is before I made lewd comments about drummers to him, which didn’t seem to phase him at all. He brought in his band's one song for me to listen too. Sadly, we couldn't get the earphones to work on his IPod, but afterwards I wouldn't give it back until I had checked out his taste in music. I stopped at the Bs - Beastie Boys, Black Sabbath & Blue Oyster Cult. I approve!

Thing 2 worked there last summer, was away at college, and is back. He is a little quieter than Thing 1, but also very adorable. We got to talking about The Walking Dead and he got very enthused. Apparently he is a fan. We had this big talk about how we both like shows that are essentially about the characters, regardless of if they are dropped in a zombie apocalypse, it needs to be about the characters. He was apparently impressed, because he spent the rest of my appointment following me around, asking my advice on what shows he should try this summer. I recced Justified and Defiance. Then Thing 1 came over and wanted to know more about Defiance and we got in this big discussion about that. Then The Things got called over to a patient and I started to leave and Thing 2 came running out to the lobby just to tell me goodbye. He's like a puppy - it's totally fucking cute.

Also, so, I like to put my headphones on and sing-along during my heat sessions. I have no fucks to give about the fact that people can hear me. Because, seriously, after this many years doing medical shit, I do whatever I can to make it more tolerable for me and could give a shit about so-called dignity and shame. I mean, I like all the people at therapy and they are receptive to my opinions and stuff, but it is still a medical clinic and I still have to go twice a week every week for the rest of my life. Which blows. So, yeah, I sing along.

Oddly, I have gotten several compliments from therapy-peeps on my singing. Which, I'm fairly decent at harmonizing but how can you tell if I have my headphones on and you are only hearing my side of the song? Idk, but I'm not really good, I wouldn't say. But one day, an aide came to take my heat and when I opened my eyes, she was just standing there and she said, "I didn't want to stop you in the middle of a song. You sounded so good." (I was singing 'Dynamite' by Steve Carlson, which is one of my better songs). Then another day as I was singing, one of the aides stopped to give me a thumbs-up sign. And Therapy Aide said to Thing 1, who was talking about putting a band together, "Well, you should get Dodger as your lead singer. We already know she can sing." The other day Thing 2 told me, "I know you have good tastes in music. I can tell by the stuff you sing along too," and I said, "Yeah, thanks for reminding me of that," and he said, "No, I like it when you sing for us," and then he flushed pink for some reason and said, "You sound nice."

I can never tell if they are being sincere or poking fun - this is what years in my family has done, I assume every comment is sarcastic! But I'm still going to sing-along regardless, because 'whatever, I do what I want!'

I am sure they are being sincere.

Well, I am sure Thing 2 was being sincere because that kid doesn't have an insincere bone in his body! I can never tell though, like, with the other people if it was one of those things where you are wearing a hideous outfit and the person is like "Oh my, your outfit! Oh, I...like...that." /shrugs/ I'm just going to take them at face value and appreciate the compliments, but even if they didn't mean it, I have zero shame on the subject, so it's cool. :)

How've you been? I feel like we haven't talked in forever!

LJ is weird. Sometimes I think I have a million things to say and then when I sit down to write them I am paralyzed by indecision. Is it TMI? (Like the fact that my last makeout session was with a stripper, but I was so wasted I can't remember which one?) Or just too boring? (Like the fact that I spent my entire day today looking at spreadsheets and was so bored that I almost fell asleep at work.)

[That stripper comment is going to come back to haunt me, I just know it.]

Here is something of interest. I am reading the book Redshirts and it is beyond AWESOME. How can you not love a book that includes this in its dedication:
"To Wil Wheaton, whom I heart with all the hearty heartness a heart can heart"

Read it!

No, I get that. I have a big story to share and then I start typing and just some other random bullshit comes out and a week later I am like, "Oh, I should have shared that other story instead".

(Like the fact that my last makeout session was with a stripper, but I was so wasted I can't remember which one?)

DO tell. /chinhands/

(Like the fact that I spent my entire day today looking at spreadsheets and was so bored that I almost fell asleep at work.)

Ugh, no, that sounds sucky. But you know, sometimes I see people post things like that on their LJs and they get like 30 comments from people who are like, "Omg, I looked at spreadsheets today too and it was awful! Solidarity!" You never know.

[That stripper comment is going to come back to haunt me, I just know it.]

Male or female stripper? Were you at the club? In the back room? Was it one of those strip clubs? Details, woman!

"To Wil Wheaton, whom I heart with all the hearty heartness a heart can heart"

Omg, best dedication ever!! Redshirts, I take it, is about Star Trek? About the fandom or about the behind the scenes?

I may or may not be imagining your Things as J2 ;)

ahahahaha Wow, I am so surprised by this revelation. ;)

Actually, Thing 2 could pass for a 'Jensen' except that actual Jensen looks like, you know... Jensen. But he is about 6'1 or 6'2, has the same build as Jensen did at about his Dawson Creek days (minus the bowlegs) and has short blond hair. Not a bad call on that.

Thing 1 looks nothing like Jared, sadly. Maybe kind of like a slightly taller Misha, with the same hair and skin tone and body shape, except more like 6'1 in height. He does, however, act like Jared. One day he was singing along to Like A Virgin and doing this little twirly dance around the clinic while he was carrying heat packs and another day he told me this story about taking his picture with a big statue where he made it look like he was, uh, blowing the statue and how he posted it all over his facebook and the girls at work were ribbing him about it. So there is that.

Aww, someone's got a crush on you *sing-songs*
:-D
dodger_sister: twinsdodger_sister on June 16th, 2013 07:58 pm (UTC)

lol You mean Thing 2? Yeah, I thought maybe on that. It's hard to tell with that guy though because he is just that nice and sweet about everything. But I thought he might. (I can never tell, which certainly doesn't help me get dates!) At any rate, I don't think Thing 2 is even remotely aware that I am old enough to be his mom. Which I am. jjfc, I am old enough to have a 19 year old kid - fml).
dodger_sister: twinsdodger_sister on June 16th, 2013 11:31 pm (UTC)
LOL Okay, valid! I should point out that I would technically be fine with the age difference because I am not looking to get married and have kids, so being with someone who is at a place in their life where they don't want that yet either, could be fun. However, Thing 2 in no way strikes me as a guy to date someone in their 30s just for casual funtimes. Besides that my attraction to him seems to be on the level of baking him cookies and scratching his head (which is what makes me feel older than anything else, is how young he seems to me).
Denidenig37 on June 16th, 2013 11:53 pm (UTC)
Aww, I have one of those, I just don't have a chance to meet him as often as before.
He is my little baby and I love him to pieces (he knows I call him that, he calls me "mommy" from time to time - in a non-sexual way).

My little sweet cute baby is a 23 years old hot guy :-D
Jeez I miss him!
The last time we met we squished the life out of each other :-D

Popping in to say that you absolutely MUST go watch "In The Flesh", that zombie 3-episode series that ran on BBC America recently and we were talking about it in that TV post? I watched all of it on OnDemand today and GO WATCH NOW.

We Tivoed it! I have all the episodes! We have decided to wait until we are finished with Mad Men, I think. Which we should be done with in about a week and a half, but since that will put us at Canadian Brother's visit time, it'll probably be July before we watch In The Flesh. We almost started it last week but then the phone rang and we were thwarted and ran out of time. But I hear amazing things about it. The Sister's BFF sang its praises this weekend as well - telling us the main character is a reanimated suicidal gay teen recovering-zombie, which...sounds awesome.

They don't *actually* say it straight out that he's gay. You're meant to assume he is, but you could go either way if you really wanted to. You should make time to watch. It's only 3 episodes and they go pretty fast!

That is the cutest thing ever! I'm sure they do enjoy your singing :-) You have the best therapy-peeps ever!

The Things are really adorable and it's kind of fun to watch them together when they are on shift at the same time. I think they must enjoy my singing too - I've just spent too much time around people who like to mock (it's a family trait). At any rate, I'm gonna do it anyways!
