we’re basically the same guy just thirty years apart.
For the fourth of July I spent my evening with family. I’ve never spent a fourth of July with my family (outside of the immediate of course), and it was really interesting to see just how similar to them I really am. My cousins, who are about my father’s age, are without-a-doubt two of the coolest, best friends I’ve ever made. I spent a hour or more speaking with one of them and her boyfriend about everything from smoking weed to dissecting the beliefs of Adolf Hitler. The other, well, we’re basically the same guy just thirty years apart and with two different political views (but as I learned, who the hell cares?).
Dr. Sheldon Cooper himself.
Earlier today I was sitting in my girlfriend’s apartment watching an episode of The Big Bang Theory in which Dr. Sheldon Cooper (portrayed by Jim Parsons) is asked by Penny (portrayed by Kaley Cuoco) to give him advice on her current relationship status with his roommate Dr. Leonard Hofstadter (portrayed by Johnny Galecki). This was the seventeenth and final episode of the first season. At this point in the show, for the first time in the series, Penny accepts Leonard’s invitation to go out on a date with him following a bad break up she had with a “bad guy” named Mike. Penny believes that it will be a good change of pace to try dating a nerd instead of the classic “asshole” she usually dates.
