Conversational Snippet #17: Oh HA HA I just got that.

The Boy and I are watching Star Trek fan-made music videos on YouTube.

Boy: The cast of the original Trek must've gotten so many weird injuries over the course of the, I know all the main actors have tintinitus now...

Me: "Tinnitus."  Tintinitus is the compulsion to plaster one's hair forward, leaving a cowlick at the front. How did they get tinnitus?

Boy: Because of all the explosions and stuff.  [Long pause]  ...Shut the fuck up.

By the way, if you understood my joke without having to click either of the links, we totally have to be best friends.  It's non-negotiable.  I'll be showing up at your house any minute now with gluten-free cookies and a bucket of Legos.

  3. I got it; but I haven't read any original Tintin, I just vaguely remember what he looks like.

    You can bring the Legos, the dogs are reasonably biddable. Some of the things I've made with Legos include a six-legged thing that could walk forward or backwards (but not turn), a miniature functioning lawnmower (using XActo blades), and a weed puller like a tiny crane that required about five minutes per weed.

  4. Sir, I bow to your superior Lego prowess!

    Truth be told I haven't played with Lego since I was a kid...and back then I mostly made houses and pixelated horsies. :D

    But if I had Lego now, I'd probably aim for something closer to this:
