i honestly can not express both how uncomfortable i am in these situations, and how often i find myself in them. i’d give you numbers, and ratios, and probabilities, but you wouldn’t believe them, and you’d be right to, because i would have made them up. Safe to say, this happens more then i’d like it to.
this is basically a transcription of a conversation that me, diana, and diana’s mom had yesterday.
Oh Captain Jean luc Picard. For those of you who aren’t awesome, Jean luc Picard is the captain of the Enterprise D. He drinks earl grey. When we first moved to BC, we would always go to this coffee shop, and I pretty much decided that I was gonna drink earl grey exclusively (not only was it only a dollar fifty, it was delicious, and besides, picard drank it!) Anyways, I started saying things like “make it so” and “surely” and other picard-isms, cause it went along with the tea… and i was watching an episode one day in the basement and my brother Andy came in, saw Picard order some earl grey, and Andy put two and two together and was like “WAIT YOU ALWAYS DRINK EARL GREY BECAUSE OF PICARD YOU FRIGGIN NEEERRRRRRRD” and I had to either choose between being embarrassed or being the most shameless trek fan i could be. Long story short, I started drinking coffee.
So yesterday, there was a fire at a substation, and my apartment was without power from 10:00 – 4:00, which happened to be the time that I was awake and not at work. Not that it would of been any better at work, seeing as the power was out for that period of time as well. Anyways, so this was supposed to be friday’s comic, finished at about 10:10, but with no internets (and i haven’t figured out iPhone tethering yet) it gets posted today! See ‘y’all on monday!
