My (Neuro) Chemical Romance


C6H3(OH)2-CH2-CH2-NH2
Ah, dopamine! Oh, how you move me. You make my heart race. You multiply in the face of my attraction. Thanks to you I can concentrate and think conceptually. Ah, dopamine -- source of psychosis, you are the needle and the damage done. You are the end justifying the means of many -- and then you abandon them like any pursued lover. Oh, cruel transmitter! Oh, sweet reward!

You want me to go have a cigarette?

I am a total druggie and have pretty much tried every drug out there.

I even got a hold of some Morphine Suppositories once.

Pelmo said...

I'm going to report both of you to Homeland Security.

Lessee here: dopamine works pretty well for treating Parkinson's....and "the needle and the damage done" is a Neil Young reference, about the heroin death of the lead guitarist for Crazy Horse.

I can't make the connection.

Maybe I need some, um, dopamine to accomplish that? Or am I overthinking this?

She's a poet,
but nobody know it.

La Sirena said...

Yay, Twit! Thanks for getting it and validating me, sweetie.

Yes, Nigel. Dopamine is all of those things. I was attempting to sing its praises.

Pelmo -- Why?

Bo -- Suppositories are gross.

La Sirena said...

Also, isn't that picture freaking excellent???

Pelmo said...

Why you ask? Those are some pretty kinky numbers you and your mother are passing around.

La Sirena said...

Ah, now I get it. And you are right -- science is much feared in these times.
