Out of the Blue

There's a crew working on a street somewhere semi-nearby, using something that must be grinding something from the noise it makes. The thing is that from this distance, that noise sounds exactly like a cell phone set on vibrate, and it's intermittent enough that it keeps fooling me whenever it happens. Oddly, I rarely even have my phone on vibrate, so how ingrained my reaction to that sound turns out to be is a little surprising. Wait, was that my phone?

We have crews replacing the main gas line in our neighborhood. They're slowly making their way towards the house, and I'm worried what they'll be digging up, as there's flags/marker's everywhere.

If they dig up a Native American burial ground, remember... Don't go into the light! No wait, go into the light, yeah, that was it.


Just make sure you're not in the house when it implodes into the singularity generated by the netherworld.

That's the important thing. Yeah. That, and don't eat that left-over steak.


clatu verata nictu!
