Merry Christmas week.  I am currently trying to catch up, albeit so far not very successfully.  In the meantime, Marie and Evil Marie are about to have it out, which is an interesting way for them to close out the year.

  1. Now where could that shiny object be?

  2. See, telling people to shut up never, ever works unless you’re large enough to physically intimidate them into doing so. And even then, it’s not the most effective way to go.

    I usually just glare at people. Hold eye contact long enough, and the awkwardness will overwhelm their words.

  3. Erwaro: It’s especially ineffective if you have no actual physical substance. It’s not clear whether Evil Marie does or not, but Marie certainly believes she doesn’t.

  4. Oh, yeah, it’s NEVER going to work then. What are you going to do if they don’t shut up? Make them feel strange by drifting through them?

    Actually, chattering endlessly might be effective (see http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1127 El Goonish Shive for an example), but Evil Marie kinda does that already, so it’s still not all that effective.

  5. That’s likely more or less the reason Marie is listening at all. She knows she doesn’t really have a choice. But expecting her to shut up as well is maybe a bit much.

  6. Why is the time gone?

    Usually, the answer is the same reason that the rum is gone. I suspect that’s not the issue here, though. The real issue is that there’s just not enough time.

    Have you considered cloning yourself?

  7. Yes, but then I start wondering just how resentful the clones would become.

    It seems I have once again forgotten to make a new comments page. Doing that now.
