last-ditch Gay-lileo plan

What if I quit my job, sold the car, lived on my nest egg, and devoted the bulk of my time to getting back into shape? Could I land a rich husband?

I had this thought recently. Immediately, it made me think of my favourite Star Trek episode, The Galileo Seven. Spock is in command of the Galileo shuttlecraft, which is in trouble after a crash-landing. The crew have managed to get back into space, but a lack of fuel leaves them with few options. The Enterprise cannot divert from its course to fully search for them, and is about to stop scanning. Spock dumps and ignites Galileo's fuel, which has the effect of creating a huge distress flare. The Enterprise picks it up and saves the Galileo's crew, just as the powerless shuttle begins to plummet back to the planet.

"Mr. Spock, that was a good gamble--perhaps it was worth it," says Scott.

I'd do a test "try your luck" trip to a casino first, kinda gauge how lucky you are "feeling." I love you for you, and anybody that doesn't is a dumb jerk. You could also start by coming to my "event" I'm planning for June, lots of handsome and eligible bachelors.

Give me money.

You could lite farts up and down church street. Probably get more attention.

HOW TO LAND A RICH HUSBAND
Lesson #1
Do not talk about how Star Trek episodes relate to your life.

It makes me think of Finger Eleven's "One Thing". I know I'd never have the courage.

Sounds like a fantasy, not a plan. But hey, I'll support your decision. Cuz I'm just that way. (I like your judgemental aunt's comment.)

Crap. Too late. Somebody has always said what I was thinking.

Nice to see you on Saturday. Hopefully, next time it won't be after some messy drinking game.

The Persian said...

er.. how big is this nest egg?

And besides, people our age don't land rich husbands, thats twink territory :(

Butchieboy said...

Hahahaha, you fuckers are funny.

Shora said...

Even better... Spock getting all unhinged when he went into his every 7 year heat. I wish there was a whacky-vulcan-sex director's cut of that episode.

tbl: thanks
dead: ROTFLMAO
yja, pg: ouch! True, but Ouch! :-)
crucie: I'll have to listen to the lyrics more carefully

It doesn't happen to people our age... For god sakes we're in our mid 30s.

Please...
The young ones don't get a husband they get to be someone's pet for a couple of years.

Buy some nice clothes, smile a lot and be fun (i.e. never, never, NEVER complain.)

Don't they have mail-order brides for gay guys?

Adorable Girlfriend said...

GL: Yeah, it's usually found somewhere at a place called the "Latin Club".

Why get a husband? Be a free spirit like AG. Refuse to be anyone's bitch. Plus, you must look so hot in the Saab. Without it, what would you be?

your judgemental aunt said...

yeah George but they're hot not rich :(

You want to lose weight, get rid of all your money in record time, and become dependent on a creepy older guy?

One word: meth.

Salem said...

Meth?
I think he wanted to live with a Daddy, not his father.

r-e-n spells ren but i'm raw said...

Zing.

Jason said...

This all reminds me of this one Simpsons episode...

madamerouge said...

FUCK OFF, JASON.

toobusyliving said...
