There are a lot of weird couples in this world. In high school I sat behind the tuba player from band who would vigorously massage his large clarinetist girlfriend on the finger tips while she ate a cheddar cheese sandwich with her free hand. It got her so worked up, she’d excuse herself from class to go to the bathroom, always with mustard stains on her face. I’m just saying, that happened, and they were weird. Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter are even stranger. They are straight out of Scissorhands with the whack job hair and dress and crazy weirdly built two homes smooshed together. Like all crazy people, they also like some normal things too. For instance, Tim Burton likes kissing blond women in alley ways. Helena Bonham Carter likes denying it happened then not changing her clothes for several days to show everyone how life is normal. Sometimes I wish everyone could just be honest with their feelings. Just not around me though. I can’t abide any emotion not in the category of quiet disdain.
