The time? Let me check the bananas clock: it’s about bananas thirty.
This is how Debbie makes having a healthy snack a convenient part of her morning: It makes sense!
Debbie took me on a trip back to the Canute meteorology department campus the other day to help her dig through Scott’s office for a backup computer tower. Two of the team’s computers have met unfortunate ends this last week. The first computer died of what we all assume was natural causes, the screen went blue and it started to smoke a little – then it started to smoke a lot – and THEN it officially caught on fire.
I maintain that there are two awesome things that a computer can do:
1. Work perfectly
2. Catch on fire
The second computer to go down was one of Canute’s laptops. According to Scott, the computer is “going to be just fine as soon as it spends some time under a hair dryer” I think this is really unlikely, since he spilled an entire of thermos of coffee in it. He wanted us to sneak the coffee-laptop back into the computer lab, and switch it for one that has had either no coffee or significantly less coffee dumped into it recently – but Debbie told him that since he’s the one in charge, he’s going to have to be the one to pull off all present and future computer heists.
I’ve only been on the homestead for a little bit, but it feels like forever since I’ve been on campus. I didn’t really have any time to visit friends, but we did have enough time grab a sandwich at The Great Chewdini’s. If you’re on the Canute campus and you’ve never been to Chewdini’s I highly recommend a visit. It’s magic themed sandwich shop and everything there is really good, but I like it because you have to know the lingo to get what you want.
I Ordered “The Unlucky Emperor in a straightjacket” and a side of “Manacles, buried alive.”*
Soon enough, it was back to the homestead to attend to the work that had piled up in our absence.
*Other, less fun restaurants would call this a Caesar wrap with cheesy onion rings.
