I can’t believe this.

I want to rage against it.

I want to hit something.

Throw something.

Smash something to tiny bits.

But if I did that, I’d only spend the next couple hours putting it back together again. That’d be a nice distraction, but in the end I’d be right back where I started.

I guess I’m just your failed experiment.

I’d speak up if I thought it’d make any difference, but I know there’s only one answer to this equation, and it’s clear it doesn’t include me.

After all, I’m an engineer, sweetheart.

I can do the math.

I *knew* I heard the wheels turn as soon as you said, "he can do the math. He *is* an engineer" (or, you know, real world quotem to that effect, as passed through my Main Idea Filter). Hell, *my* wheels turned at that. I almost said something, but that little...pause or whatever...made me know the Bunny Already Bit.
Speaking of biting, I have a picture to send you.
Off to go ready the picture.
And listen to a little Stephen Lynch.
Oh, and did I mention, you did this justice - in absolute SPADES?
Lovely, lovely Triptonin, cap.

Oh! Oh! A piccie? SWEET.

I'm listening to some JB on RM - live concert from Vegas. Schoolboy Heart is on right now, in fact. *grin*

And yeah, I bet you could hear the wheels turning. They are, in fact, a bit rusty. Okay. A lot rusty. (Then again, these particular wheels are brand, spanking new, so...hm...)

Glad I got it right, luv.

Can't think of much better soul balm than "lovely, lovely Triptonin, cap." Thanks muchly.

Very nice! Trip and T'Pol were one of the highlights of the show. I need to rematch...it's been ages since I've seen it.

Thanks, and yeah, I agree. I love the dynamic there.

I just watched ENT for the first time recently. I enjoyed it - far more than I expected to. And Trip? Oh, be still my heart. Love him!
