I cannot believe today is here. I will be at work like the proletariat that I am. Please nerds of the interweb, POST EVERYTHING! I need YOU!
I just learned that what I do on the internet all day is called shipping.
Shipping: derived from the word relationship, is the belief that two people, fictional or non-fictional, would be interesting or believable (or are, or will be, or should be) in a romantic relationship. It is considered a general term for fans’ emotional involvement with the ongoing development of romance in a work of fiction. Though technically applicable to any such involvement, it refers chiefly to various related social dynamics observable on the Internet, and is seldom used outside of that context. The methods of shipping can include creating images of two characters a fan wishes to be shown in a loving relationship with one another or writing fan fiction stories on web-based boards in this same context.
YEAH, I’m a proud shipper!

One of my greatest friends just got engaged. I am in THAT stage of adulthood where friends are committing their lives to other people, and I can’t even commit to a brand of tampons.
