Hey! Look at what arrived in the mail today! A top-of-the-line hyperspace-ready SciFi scooter with laser capabilities and shield generator in official network colors. Unfortunately, the wormhole-drive was a factory add-on not included in this model. Nevertheless, Marty G. took it out for a preliminary spin, putting it through its paces, accidentally incinerating Stage 1, part of Post, and an unlucky teamster along the way. Not exactly the smoothest of launches but, all in all, not bad for a maiden voyage. Brad and Robert were the lucky recipients of a matching pair (There is no cuter sight than seeing those two roll off the lot together). Paul and I, meanwhile, received equally awesome SciFi multimedia players that are not only portable and iPod friendly, but actually allow one to view the future. I watched next week’s episode of Lost tonight. This thing is amazing!
Yesterday’s entry broke my traffic record here at wordpress, besting the previous high of 7 710 views with an impressive 10 928, and landing it in the WordPress Top Ten (at the #8 spot). I can only assume many of you were so shocked by my account of last night’s dinner that you sent friends and co-workers over to read it for themselves. Well, I’m happy to report that tonight’s meal was somewhat better: roast chicken, broccoli, and a side salad of English cucumbers and heirloom tomatoes. And, yes, I did eat at home.
By the way, Baron Destructo and Cookie Monster are presently screening the Oscar contenders in preparation for their post-Awards predictions spectacular. Boy, if you thought these two didn’t know a thing about football, just you wait until Oscar night! Cookie Monster is renting a tux for the occasion.
Today’s pics: Scooter, player, Lawren back in the office and ready for business.
A quick mailbag –
AMZ writes: “I don’t if this has been asked/answered before (shame on me), but how did you and Paul become writing partners?”
Answer: We met in a creative writing class in college, co-wrote a feature together, then partnered up to work on a teen sitcom called Student Bodies.
Wheresmyfroggy writes: “Also, why didn’t you get them micro-chipped rather than tattooed?”
Answer: I did both.
PG15 writes: “Also, has the title been changed to Search and Destroy now?”
Answer: Woops. I meant Search and Rescue. Although I suppose Search and Destroy is also applicable. It’s just not the title.
Jon K. writes: “I was wondering, if you had a chance to write an episode for any tv show throughout all time what show would you write the episode for?”
Answer: No contest. The Flintstones.
Shipperahoy writes: “I was just wondering if it was your idea to include the 42 reference in Quarantine.”
Answer: Nope. That was pure Carl Binder.
