You know how sometimes you feel like a freak? Like you are the only person in the whole world who feels, thinks, likes, or hates something, and so you just must be crazy? Well, the staffers here at Turkey Curry Buffet would like to let you in on a little secret. If there’s one thing they’ve learned in the past year and change of writing this blog, it’s that whenever they go out on a limb with a post and get really personal and then get nervous that perhaps they’ve publicly admitted things they probably shouldn’t and that EVERYONE IS GOING TO LAUGH AT MEEEEEEEEE– these turn out to be the posts that get the most hits and the most positive feedback. The secret, in other words, is that you’re never the only one. You’ll know that’s true the minute you start to be honest, both with yourself and with others, about whatever it is your internal Gollum is clutching deep inside the dark cave of yourself and refusing to let go. Take a deep breath, relax, and let your freak flags fly from the sides of your car on the 1-95 of life. You’ll be amazed at how many people honk in support as they drive by.

Oh hey 2012. I’m so glad you’re here! I know the Mayans have been talking shit about you for millennia and all, so I think it’s really cool you showed up to the party. Some girls would just like, hide, you know? But you can’t let the apocalypse keep you from living your best life, right? Just like, you’re so brave. You’re like, my best friend. No like, really. Like, my best. Do you want some of this Ecstasy?
