Yesterday, we were introduced to a potential house-sitter via our friend Nicole. She was lovely – a pleasant, intelligent, young professional who is looking for a place in Vancouver come October. The timing should be perfect – provided we get that third season pick-up. Akemi and I will have someone to watch the house and send us weekly mail updates, while our guest will have a nice comfortable home for eight months. As an added bonus, she offers dog-sitting services as well.
After she left, I asked Akemi what she thought. Her response: “I like her. I think she will be great for the house. The dogs…we’ll see.”
In other words: Sure, she seems honest and sensible enough to entrust with all of or worldly possessions. But a little more due diligence before we trust her with the dogs.
My thoughts exactly.
Hey, here are two more entries to add to our every-growing glossary of Akemi-isms:
crank up: grow cranky, usually as a result of hunger. See: hangry
be regret: to regret something (ie. “If you eat that cookie, you will be regret.”).
These words join our expanding lexicon of such notable terms as: brinkle, mushy-mushy, inch, and “Tastes like Santa’s socks”.
Speaking of Akemi – she felt an allergic reaction coming on and took some Benadryl (because we were out of Claratin). As a result, she’s been a little dopey all morning…
Akemi: I feel so out of it.
Me: You’re high on Benadryl.
Akemi: Actually, I’m low.
A few more recaps, reactions, and reviews to the last episode of Dark Matter, “Going Out Fighting”:
“After the excellent, parallel-universe hopping episode last week, this week’s turn was a more grounded affair, with a heavy focus on answering the question of what is wrong with Two and her nanites, and more importantly: how to solve this…” by Christopher Hart at The Nerd Recites
“Pivoting to the Raza for a moment, Five and Android have a heart-to-heart over a cup of hot chocolate, which Android adroitly steals from Five, basically inviting herself to have a sip, with her “20 million taste receptors” and then never returning the mug…” by Veronica Scott at Happy Ever After
“Dark Matter continues to flow smoothly into new territory, with the odd jolt of characters dying or changing dramatically. While Six seems more like his “old self,” The Android is entering a new phase. This evolution of the quirky character should be more than a little interesting…” by Michael Knox-Smith at Mike’s Film Talk
Alright. Scripts downloaded? Check. iBooks library updated? Check. Pocket handkerchiefs and quirky socks packed? Check! I’m off to L.A.! While Akemi (and Bubba and Lulu) hold the fort, I’ll be in Los Angeles doing meetings, making new connections, and dining out with some old (and somewhat recent) friends. Full reports to follow in the coming days!
