Me [10:42 AM]

cause this weekend, Gay Earth was single-mindedly obsessing over Taylor Swift 

so this little glimpse into Straight Earth I just got [two colleagues talking about this weekend’s boxing match between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather] was both illuminating and confusing

Other [10:44 AM]

yeah I was lost in my I-Don’t-Own-a-TV-or-Know-What’s-Going-On World

Me [10:46 AM]

I once went on my soapbox and delivered a rousing speech about why romantic relationships are useless evolutionary hangovers, the equivalent of nipples on guys, during a prosecco-fueled dinner party

Other [10:46 AM]

but I generally agree, dogs are just much better persons than people

Me [10:46 AM]

in front of my boyfriend

Other [10:47 AM]

hahaha

i wish i could’ve seen that!

Me [10:47 AM]

but everyone disagreed

[10:47]

I DONT TOLERATE DISAGREEMENT

Other [10:47 AM]

you shouldn’t. because you’re right, and that’s that.

Me [10:48 AM]

why thank you

[10:48]

also i’ll never understand the appeal of paying 100 dollars to watch two guys hit each other in the face

Other [10:49 AM]

you’re welcome (I’m scared to disagree with you)

[10:49]

yeah haha me neither

Me [10:49 AM]

though actually now that Ive typed that, it sounds totally logical

Other [10:49 AM]

it’s disgusting to me, and it’s like… a trend or something

[10:49]

all the guys watch that shit now

Me [10:49 AM]

honestly

[10:49]

i thought boxing was like Miss World, a super niche retro thing from the 1970s that nobody cares about

Other [10:50 AM]

so did I

Me [10:50 AM]

Miss World Boxing, now that’s an idea

Other [10:50 AM]

:open_mouth:

[10:50]

that would sell gazillions

Me [10:51 AM]

I would totally watch Miss Wales and Miss Botswana slap each other around in evening wear

[10:51]

deliciously exploitative

Other [10:52 AM]

Miss Wales would be a sheep, so that wouldn’t be a fair fight

[10:53]

I do not condone animal cruelty. 

Me [10:53 AM]

that’s not how it works. they don’t send their biggest exports to miss world. Miss Spain is never an olive.

Other [10:53 AM]

How cool would that be!

Other [10:54 AM]

poor, poor sheep

Me [10:54 AM]

you meant like a metaphorical sheep?
