Detail of 'Yuuwaku' by Audrey Kawasaki

Birthday card I received today from likealongforgottendream: "Happy Birthday.  SYLAR RULES!!!"  I am glad I still come first in her world.  For now, anyway.

Have you ever had a cat attempt to cuddle on your shoulder, and you look at him and realize he's got two disembodied spider legs in the fur around his mouth?  This is a totally, totally hypothetical question that happened to a friend of mine.

Actual conversation between my mother and me:

Mother: Your nephew just loves to manipulate things.  He loves anything that he can pull apart to find out how it works.  And he's extremely good at figuring out how everything works.  He's just...it's like...
Me: Like he can see what makes things...tick?
Mother:  Yes!  That's a good way of putting it.
Me: No, it isn't.  *thinking: Didn't they consider naming him Gabriel?  Don't ask.  Don't ask.*

Aww! Your nephew is a little future Sylar! You should make it a point to spend more time with him, so that when the time comes, he won't stab you with a pair of scissors.

I shall nurture him and make sure he realizes how special he is. Also I shall take him to many, many hockey games to he can work out his aggression!

Wait, so you could be dating a real-life fully-grown Gabriel Gray and now your little nephew is exhibiting Gabriel-like traits as well? what have you done to deserve this bounty of potentially-sweater-vested riches? You must share your secrets with the rest of us!

Wait, what? She could be dating a Gabriel? I didn't really start reading other people's LJs until Sunday, so I didn't hear about this.

He's never killed anyone! That we know of! Though his best friend keeps speculating on how long till he snaps!

Well, at least he has a best friend. That's something. I'd be careful if I were you, though. You shouldn't ignore his phone calls. He could take it very personally and attack you in your car and snap your neck. Then we'd never get to read the third part of that fic of yours, and we wouldn't want that, now, would we?

He has a number of friends. He just doesn't have a girlfriend. You know, if Gabriel would have just gotten laid once in a while...

See what you have missed with your whole "I don't read people's LJs" thing? Yes, she could, right now, be dating her own real-life Gabriel. He even makes dirty jokes and cooks! It is like the most amazing thing ever except for the smartmouth only real-life and never, ever internet friends making crazy remarks all the time. It is like the epic love story of your Mylar balloons, only with real people... and R2-D2!

You do realize what I'm going to answer here, don't you? That it must be something that rhymes with "mate", or maybe even something rhymes with "dharma"? And I'm not just saying that because you're not-Indian.
13th-Oct-2007 03:13 am (UTC)
Mate... nice word choice, considering the subject matter and all. Also, Parma? Like the Italian city? What does that have to do with anything? I am quite confused.

Is this typed sarcasm? Or are you really that Mohinder?
13th-Oct-2007 03:52 am (UTC)
Someone needs to create a LJ Mohinderometer, so that people can tell when other people are being sarcastic and when they're just being Mohinder.

You have to ask if they almost named him Gabriel. Have to.

My sister-in-law would NOT be amused, if she found out why I was asking... I should see if I can find a cheap used set of the DVDs for them. My brother still hasn't watched it. And I know he'd like it far more than Smallville, which he still keeps watching for some sick reason.
13th-Oct-2007 04:02 am (UTC)
Heh. I remember watching Smallville back during season one. I blame Micheal Rosenbaum.

You should still ask. Because...that would be awesome!
