Eric: Almost done.

Well. In a scant couple of hours, we climb in the car once more, and then Wednesday climbs into the sky.

So, things should be getting back to normal around here starting tomorrow.

Today? Today isn't normal.

Later, all.

I'll be in my bunk.

Wednesday must have terribly strong arms.


Though the secret to climbing is to use your legs.

Comment from: siwangmu posted at January 21, 2006 1:52 PM

kirabug: That about says it.

Dan: Aw, man, now you've ruined all chance for Weds to be like "I just flew back from America, and boy are my arms tired!"

Paul: Dude, many points for source material, but I am so disturbed by the accidental implication that you're, ah, excited by E/W.

Maybe next vacation time, Eric could spend time in "jolly old England" as Wednesday shows him all of her favourite pubs, and other interesting spots.

I remember my own days of long-distance relationships... seeing someone for two or three blissful weeks wherein you're rarely apart, then finding yourself utterly alone for weeks on end with nothing but the gentle humming sound of computer fans and your own thoughts to keep you company.


Good times.

(Re-reads miyaa's comment.)

(Understands, snickers.)

(Goes back to Megaman Zero.)

If I understand correctly, Wed's sad departure will lead to a barrage of 100,000-word posts in the next few days. Writing takes away the pain for Eric, but I don't know what Weds does. Maybe she uses more traditional methods, like alcohol? Alcohol!

Why would you want things to be "Normal"?!

Normal is boring! Crazy is Wednesday all the time!

Go crazy, Eric.

Comment from: quiller posted at January 21, 2006 8:48 PM

Somehow "Crazy is Wednesday all the time!" reminds me of the movie, "Groundhog Day". Been a while though, so I'm not sure what day of the week it was, I think maybe Monday.

Comment from: Dan Severn posted at January 21, 2006 10:09 PM

I'll touch it.

You see, unless you're from bizarro world, Wednesday is the lady with hair on top of her head, and Eric is the man with hair on his face.

That should clear things up.

(trips over a pile of carelessly discarded parentheses)


Seriously, who left all these things lying around?

Comment from: 32_footsteps posted at January 22, 2006 10:58 AM

(Picks up brooms)

(Sweeps up parentheses)

(Clumsily stuffs them in an empty closet)

Comment from: kirabug posted at January 22, 2006 11:10 AM

(Wanders in, carrying coat.)

(Opens closet door, gets attacked by avalanche of parentheses)

People, what the hell? These belong in the upstairs closet! And couldn't you at least fold them first?

(grumbles, hangs up coat, kicks parentheses back into closet, slams closet door.)

Comment from: kirabug posted at January 22, 2006 11:12 AM

(See, now if Eric had taken all of us to the airport with them (and I image, made us stay in the car) he wouldn't have to worry about what we're doing to the house while he's gone.)

Brendan, I hope you don't mean to imply that we are all grumpy old men.

Come to think of it I am a grumpy old man. I'll stand down now then, but you'll have to deal with Eric yourself, seing how you're propositioning Wednesday and all.

In other news, the sun rises in the east. :)

Comment from: Dan Severn posted at January 22, 2006 5:46 PM

That's why it is very hot in China.

Funny. I just found out this morning that in the videogame, World of Warcraft, the sun actually rises in the West.


But it still sets in the West as well.

I'm scared.

Comment from: Alexis Christoforides posted at January 22, 2006 7:21 PM

Patman - I find that fact extremely funny, and symbolic of a person's time spent playing WoW.

Comment from: DarkStar posted at January 23, 2006 12:00 AM

(Places useless descriptor inside parentheses)

{snickers at all the previous comments}

[Realizes that this is probably lame]

(Wanders off)

/Ascii sucks.\

~32: What? What did I say that so befuddled you?~

Comment from: miyaa posted at January 23, 2006 2:54 AM

I also learned that the html bracket (lessor and greater than mathematical signs) do not appear at all no matter what phrase you put into it. This shows how clueless I am with html scripting.

<That's so true>

Comment from: 32_footsteps posted at January 23, 2006 9:52 AM

No, Miyaa, it wasn't befuddlement at all. It was repression of snark.

You know, in my younger days, I loved many a bracket. Arrow brackets, square brackets, pointer brackets... I've had them all. But in the end, only round brackets, my dear parentheses, would do for me. I love you, parentheses.

(I love you too, 32.)

Comment from: siwangmu posted at January 23, 2006 10:20 AM

Wow, Eric and Weds, have you put all of us in the mood? 32's mackin' on punctuation marks.

Comment from: KennyCelican posted at January 23, 2006 10:55 AM

Pat - The word used was 'traditional', not 'normal'. I'm certain someone here can give an example of a tradition that no one in their right minds would consider normal.

Siwangmu - It's the lack of repression leaking out, y'see. You stay apart for a long time, you get used to keeping all that stuff down, you get together the lid comes off, when you try to put the lid back on it sprays out everywhere. Back me up here, you-who-also-have-experience-in-these-things Jin.

....wate wut?

I'm going to have to try to check this out. Watching sunset shouldn't be a problem. Sunrise will be tricky.
