Re-reading OK Computer by cesperanza and for some reason, every damn time, this part makes me laugh so hard I hurt my stoamch. Consider this a rec.


First one:
"Look, see?" McKay said, gesticulating wildly at the screen. "It's—" and yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, he saw it, and the sly, pink-shirted bastard had faked his own virtual death.

I keep thinking of pseuicide and then lose precious, precious oxygen.

Second one:
Rodney forced McKay away from the keyboard with a full-body, lateral shove, and yes, something new was running in Atlantis, visible despite John's clever but amateurish attempt to conceal himself, which was the equivalent of hiding behind a slowly-moving and not at all realistic shrub on a stick.

And I do not know why, but I get the imagery and just--yeah. Stupid air.


You may now carry on. Or introduce yourself to Passive-Aggressive Notes and give up having a life. Cause that is worse than crack. Worse than crack.

Tiptoeing music! XD

pseuicide

I think I broke a rib, laughing. Is that a real word? I must use it in conversation.

Or introduce yourself to Passive-Aggressive Notes and give up having a life.

"Learn to effin drive!" *dies and is dead*

(In my dorm it would have been, "Turn off your effin car alarm, or the next time the rain sets it off, I'll do it for you. WITH A BASEBALL BAT.")

The second is definitely my favorite because I can picture it so well. *dieslaughing*

The Magrathea line made me laugh like a madwoman. And, yeah, the shrub-on-a-stick thing. ::dies::

John's clever but amateurish attempt to conceal himself, which was the equivalent of hiding behind a slowly-moving and not at all realistic shrub on a stick.

I distinctly remember LOL'ing at that particular passage myself.

I had the same lack of oxygen problem with that shrub on a stick line. It was totally the visual it evoked.

I might just have to reread the whole thing tonight.

I had not of course read that story, so I just did. Wondrous. Happy ending for all four!

Ah, John's just studied Monty Python's How Not to be Seen.

Oh. Oh MAN. I hadn't gotten to read OK Computer before. And. Wow. Thanks! I love your recs.

Heehee. I cracked up there too. He's being sneaky like Wile E. Coyote!
