I keep a list of words and stuff that I want to fit into Bent somewhere. They’re especially awesome when I look at them out of context. Here are some, in no particular order:

Pabst Blue Ribbon
glitter bomb
emancipation proclamation
Get Smart
the joke about the tomatoes in Pulp Fiction
Pop Rocks
like a passionate sociopath
Flowers in the Attic
it tasted like bread baked with polio
don’t go to strip clubs after dark
I can’t force my Scrabble app to spell “darth”
peeping tomism
pogo stick
“The Scream” Ed Munch
heart shaped pizza
Lieutenant Dan
his and hers potato chips
Jodie Foster in The Accused
Absinthe Fairy
moon gel
I pity the fool

And finally,

I like the way you work it. Yo. Um diggity.
