They're both pretty smart guys, and D for one can tell a good story, and has done interesting things over the years. C doesn't talk to me, but others say he's a nice enough guy. D drives me nuts with his mannerisms but he's a nice guy too.
The other thing they have in common is that they're a lot like me. We're all three socially adrift, out of our element, alienated from the people around us, and lonely. We all have attachment issues and social anxiety that have kept us from getting close to others. We're all smart, and neurotic, and we squick the girls.
My laptop is a lot newer.
And we're all too old for this shit. You know, a fish can flop around in the bottom of a boat for a hell of a long time before it finally goes limp. Hard to watch, ain't it?
