Copy and paste lulz
Here is a screencap from some time way back, but I found it on my hard drive and every time I look at it I chuckle:
In my head I hear a monotonous robotic female voice that shatters what is an otherwise tense moment, like a terrible network TV profanity dub, and then that look between the characters. There’s also the terrible impulse to replace all of protagonist Baird’s lines with whatever random clipboard paste serves up– and then throwing it out for coverage or competition readers. A 120-page joke for the cost of a few reads, because why not? Strikes me as a better use of the money than just buying lottery tickets these days.
Anyway, I’m off on some pre-Christmas adventures today. Might even get some new photos on the Flickr! If I don’t see you before the holidays, here’s wishing the best to you and yours. Also, seize the nog.
