I’m surprised by this. Are you joking or being ironic?

Serious. I don't see myself exactly AS an Eeyore type and didn't intend to trivialize straight-up depression, but I relate to Eeyore's depression, nihilism, and negativity. I have Eeyore-like thoughts all the time. I probably deal with them with humor vs getting outright blue. I do feel day to day like I'm never succeeding and stuck, hence that particular GIF. I don't necessarily feel like it's particularly my fault. It's a hell of a world we live in. I don't really know how anybody could get by day-to-day without a little Eeyore popping into their head.

Anyways, I hope that makes sense.

Yeah, man. Thanks for sharing that.

I couldn’t find a suitable image of Geeker from Project G.e.e.k.e.r, but that character is the best match for me that I could think of. I always feel like I’m annoying the people around me with my seemingly naive optimism, my corny sense of humor, and my slightly autistic way of having a hard time at reading the mood of a room or person.

I found this. It kind of helps.

what makes am an turn neutral? Lust for gold? Power? or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?!

my other favorite Zapp quote is: Unfortunately I suffer from a very sexy learning disability. Kif, what do I call it?

I relate pretty strongly with kif too.

Makes sense to me. After seeing your post I considered saying Winnie the Pooh was the character I identified with the most. But really, I probably think of my self as half Pooh, a quarter Eeyore, a quarter Owl.

Eh. We all have at least a little Pooh in us. Some more than most.
