Nostalgia time.

I remember when going to the Zoo was a cheap way to spend the day.

Of course, my perspective might be a little skewed. Grandma always got the family a Zoo Membership for Christmas.

I loved the Louisville Zoo. It was always adding new stuff, and there were tons of big cats, and when I was really young there were Elephant and Camel rides.

I remember spending ages by the wolf enclosure, trying to spot the wolves. Never did see them, not in the 18 years I used to go. I'm not sure they actually existed.

I loved Halloween at the Zoo. It was where we'd test out our Halloween costumes and score extra candy. And it was the one time of the year when we'd get to ride the Zoo's train (also the one time of the year when the train was interesting, cause they'd put up all this nifty stuff and the Headless Horseman would ride along side).

I tried to go to the local Zoo today. I saved up my 'extras' money, and I had the day off.

And I didn't have enough money to pay my way in.

It sometimes surprises people that I like things like zoos. I'm not much for the outdoors, or exersize, or places that smell like pee. But I love zoos, which involve all three.

I wanna make you move because you're standing still


The one who seduced you and fucked you over and broke your heart in a million pieces and laughed about it:
White Wolf's Original World of Darkness

The old flame you don't see very often any more but whom you still really enjoy getting together with for a few drinks and maybe a pleasant nostalgic romp in the sheets:
Voltron: Defender of the Universe

The mysterious dark gothy one whom you used to sit up with talking until 3 a.m. at weird coffeehouses and with whom you were quite smitten until you realized he really was fucking crazy:
Dragon Ball Z

The one you spent a whole weekend in bed with and who drank up all your liquor, and whom you'd still really like to fuck again although you're relieved he doesn't actually live in town:

The steady:
Young Avengers

The alluring stranger whom you've flirted with at parties but have never gotten really serious with:

The one you hang out with and have vague fantasies about maybe having a thing with but ultimately you're just good buddies 'cause the friendship is there but the chemistry ain't:

The one your friends keep introducing you to and who seems like a hell of a cool guy except it's never really gone anywhere:

The one who's slept with all your friends, and you keep looking at him and thinking, "Him? How the hell did he land all these cool babes?":
Star Wars

The one your friend has fallen for like a ton of bricks and whom she keeps babbling to you about on the phone for hours, and you'd be happy for her except you just know it's going to end badly:
