A funny thing happened on the way back from college...

So, last Wednesday a thing happened.

Image

That's me on the right, Sicon on the left. See, as it turned out, Sicon's trip home from college had him passing not too far from where I live, and we and his mom thought we might as well try to meet up in real life for dinner or something. And then we went to Olive Garden and plotted Mimsy's demise in Warframe because seriously how the hell do you make a Pangolin Sword that ridiculously powerful @_@ and then our moms made us get our pictures taken and that happened.

So yeah. It isn't the best picture in the world (for one thing, I could've used sunglasses :P), but it's a thing. Incidentally, there's another one where I look like I was just punched in the face by the sun. Wrong choice of bench. :| Also, for the record, I would've posted this sooner, but Sicon decided that he'd wait to randomly link a picture in the chat or something and wait for everyone to figure out who was in it themselves. Responses were... unenthusiastic. :/

I shall repeat what I said on the chat. That pink shirt is in my possession because it was free from the football team, and it was worn because it was the only thing I hadn't worn up till that point during finals week.

God forbid I be associated with football. :P

You do realize that we're all gonna ship you now, right?

Actually I'll either think they are communing towards some sort of evil goal or that Sicon did this to use his mind controlling stare so he could have another pawn for his plan.

You tell me this AFTER I show up at your house covered in postage stamps and with the destination address waiting. :cry: Now how am I supposed to get home?

Qara you are as bad as that guy who tried to stick his friend with a thousand-dollar taxi bill. You should have made plans with a shipping company for pickup before you got here. Sheesh.

Don't worry about it, I've got plenty of shirts associated with stuff I don't want anything to do with.

I do have a pink shirt too but that's irelevant.

Hey, I like to think I'm pretty decently sane. Most of the time.

Yeah I'm reasonably sane too. Just ignore that dancing elephant in the background.

Awww man that's a POTTER'S ARMY T-SHIRT *approves enormously, envies slightly*

I love it when these things happen, not that it matters, but it's nice to see what you guys actually LOOK like.

Talking of which, Scarab, I'm really sorry I haven't replied back to your email yet. I keep meaning to do so. :(

Sorry. I wish it was. It's just a thing for the football team at my college which is coached by a man named Otter. >.<

The sequel has arrived!

So, this was actually me and Mimsy's second attempt to meet up somewhere. First time didn't work out so well, so this time we decided on going to Chinatown, which was less out of the way. We ended up going to a Chinese barbecue and talking for about three hours about random shit. No plotting this time, just talking about weird stories and snarking at Star Wars books.

Meanwhile, phone pictures continue to not be the best at high-resolution images, but I think this one was decent. Hair's still growing out after my last haircut. I ended up bringing glasses. Mimsy is fucking tall, holy shit, I was definitely not expecting that. :P
