Morning conversation

This is typical morning conversation at the home of rubyloot and foomf.

Loonatiks Unlimited promo bit comes on TV. RubyLoot watches skeptically. Foomf heads into kitchen to make breakfast. Commercial ends.

RubyLoot: "OK, that's not Bugs."
Foomf: "No, those are the future descendants."
RubyLoot: "I mean, there's no sense of humor, no sneaky wiles, no cross-dressing."
Foomf: "Well... if they're in the future and all anyone wears is that skin-tight spandex, maybe he IS cross-dressing and we just can't tell."


Smallville commercial comes on. Clark is apparently in Metropolis, and jumping from one skyscraper to the next, with dire results for the next one when he misses.

Foomf: "So much for leaping tall buildings in a single bound."
RubyLoot: "Dut DWEEE!"
Foomf: "Yeah, a real Tick moment."

I can't believe I'm going to plow through my entire cache of geek cred in one message, at the same time that I admit to watching a show not meant for my demographic.

But here goes.

Clark doesn't come into the series with even so much as X-Ray vision. The story is so much about his having to react to all these changes... "I can see through things. Is that normal?"

I need a new monitor.
Text on my monitor is generally fairly fuzzy. Fuzzy enough that sometimes, m's look like rn's. And with how screwy my brain is, I din't see the R in promo. You are clever enough to see where I went.

You better be.

Re: I need a new monitor.
*sigh*

Can't take you anywhere.

Although, technically, even before the characters are out and known, the Loonatix pron is already being written.
