Anyone else here ever get into the show Killing Eve? It’s got everything: assassins, murder, hot people, comedy, and lots of steamy sexual tension. The story is centered around Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh), an MI5 desk jockey who is very, very bored with her job, and thus, her life. Some missteps lead to Poastri joining MI6 as an undercover agent tasked with tracking an extremely hot female assassin by the name of Villanelle (Jodie Comer). Despite Eve’s history of boredom, it’s Villanelle that eventually delivers the most painfully relatable monologue about tedium, disillusionment, and disenchantment:
“Most of the time, most days, I feel nothing. I don’t feel anything. It is so boring. I wake up and I think, again, really? I have to do this again? And what I really don’t understand is how come everyone else isn’t screaming with, with boredom, too, and I try to find ways to make myself feel something. More, and more, and more, but it doesn’t make any difference. No matter what I do, I don’t feel anything. I hurt myself; it doesn’t hurt. I buy what I want; I don’t want it. I do what I like; I don’t like it. I’m just so bored.”
This is how I feel every day. But instead of leading the life of a moneyed contract killer with a coincidentally killer fashion sense, I’m bored and broke. Fun. Anyway, I’m not really the murderous type, so I guess the boredom that comes with providing the world with memes is slightly preferable to ending people’s lives. So here are the memes. And if you want more? Well, there are plenty of ’em where these came from.
