Yay! Back to the G.O.B.! What will happen there?!

    Well done, Princess, well done!

    That’s one of the two most useful phrases one can learn when young:

    “Would you like to tell NN yourself/should I tell NN you said that?”


    “You need to put that order in writing, signed and countersigned, if I’m to able to comply.”

    The second one works wonders when you are a civil or public servant and your apparatchik, parteigenosse or politruk of a boss gives you criminal orders.

    So somewhere on a ruined planet, there is a spaceship sitting there, waiting for a shipment of lemon soaked wipes before taking off. With the passengers in stasis.

    Unintentional nod to Hitchhiker’s guide I assume.

      Decades ago, he spoke at my university and told us the basis for that gag. Apparently he desperately needed to get to another city in Great Britian for an important meeting. He could have taken the train, but taking an airplane looked to be much faster. After getting strapped in (trapped) he waited, and waited, and waited for the takeoff. Finally the flight attendant came on and informed the passengers that they were short on some trivial supply (cookies for the dinners, maybe?) and they would take off as soon as a new supply arrived.

      Long story short, it took several hours for this item to be delivered, and the plane did not even take off until well after his train would have arrived at his destination.

    Oh, I LIKE this Aitana. I think she’s going to get along just fine. Once she gets used to getting the drop on people and making the most of it.

    And now to deal with the GOB! I’m getting more popcorn, but I think I’ll pass on the ghee and the Sugar Babies. I don’t like the sounds this chair I’m in is making.

        Um, actually, I do, but I consider it bad form to advertise on another artist’s comment page. I’m not even fully comfortable to tell you I’m Googleable.

        Also, I try not to write in books, as it’s distracting to whoever reads the book next. Not to mention looking awful.
