Keep calm and carry on!

November 30, 2009

You know this unusual weather we seem to be experiencing–ha, ha– worldwide? I don’t think it’s anything to worry about. So what if Nick Griffin is representing the EU at the Climate summit in Copenhagen! Ha, ha! That would certainly be alarming news to everyone except the people who think the world’s leading scientists are making stuff up just for a laugh!

No, let’s all take a leaf out of this young woman’s book and just ignore it! Hurray! Now we’re safe!

The Creepiest Gamer

January 16, 2008

talk. Any interruption for normal subjects of conversation were quickly
assimilated into an idea for a new character. Let me give you an

Friend: So my grandma died not too long ago.
Me: Oh, man, I’m sorry. Was she sick?
Friend: No, she was just old, you know? We were expecting it.
Jake: Well, it’s gotta happen sometime. I mean can you imagine if you were
immortal? It’s for the best that we’re not. I’ve thought about it and
decided that’s not the superpower I’d want. Too hard to see the people you
love die.
Friend: Yeah… yeah, I guess.
Me: I think he knows how hard that is, Jake.
Jake: Yeah, definitely not immortality. What superpower would you have, if
you could have any?

(Sorry, this bit too…“This conversation lasted until about 2 a.m., at which point he gave up trying to “talk sense” into me, and started angrily rolling dice. Have you ever heard angrily rolled dice? It is a sound you will never forget, it’s so small and sad.”)
