|Day 75/365: Friday's Unscientific Poll: Tricky's Finest Lyrics
Mad Scientess Jane Expat
Tricky's Finest Lyrics
Reduce me, seduce me, dress me up in Stussy
When there's trust, there'll be treats, when we funk we'll hear beats
Bonus: Nanila should start re-running the Unscientific Polls with better options after the comments discussions
ETA: You know what I forgot when I made this poll? Those songs are 23 years old. Twenty-three. I am going to have to change the icon on this post now.
This more than makes up for the Fridays when I had no idea what the poll was about - NOW YOU'RE SPEAKING MY LANGUAGE.
Yesterday I was speaking to Yvonne about an actress we both like, and Yvonne said, 'I think she was born in 1990 or so', to which I said, 'no I think she's a bit older than that, like, I think she's nearly thirty now', to which Yvonne replied, 'um, yes, that's what I just said'. Because someone born in 1990 is nearly thirty years old.
Oh holy christ I am not ready for 1990 to be thirty years ago.
Also, a couple of days ago it occurred to me that the kids who are leaving school this year were born in two thousand fucking two. That doesn't even seem possible that people born in 2002 could be going out into the world and doing things like human beings would. That's not even a real year that people could be born in, is it? Everyone knows that years in which actual people were born start with 19, not 20.
Also also, I've been noticing recently that when old people are complaining about Kids These Days, they're speaking less and less about Millennials and more about Gen Z.
tl;dr time progresses as normal, ignore my freakout and carry on.

Heh. I get reminded of this regularly because I work in a university. Every October I see the first-years and I think, "Surely you are not old enough to be outside without your parents," the thought is swiftly followed by, "ERMAHGERD I AM OLD ENOUGH TO BE YOUR PARENT."
The thing I realised this year is that that now goes for the incoming cohort of PhD students. WAAAH
