Strange Conversations: Part Three Hundred and Twenty-Four

Posted 6 October 2010 in by Catriona

In which we discuss my ambitious plans to pin-tuck a taffeta skirt by hand:

NICK: You’re doing well so far.
ME: I haven’t even started!
(Pause)
NICK: I am Nick from the future. I have caused a causality inversion by coming here. I must leave now.
ME: That’s one possibility. Or you’re just not listening to me.
NICK: I don’t really listen to anyone! My head is too full of stuff! It’s like a cacophony.
ME: Your head is full of nothing. It’s like an echo chamber.
NICK: That’s a bit harsh!
ME: So is not listening to me.
NICK: It’s not that I don’t want to . . .

Hey, don’t pay out on Nick from the Future, not at least until he’s given up next seasons Dr.Who episodes, or at least the Christmas Special!

Apart from being hilarious, does this all mean that now the skirt can never be made or else you’ll end up marrying your own kids or something?

(Awesome parallel structure in your response, too, btw.)

You guys are just gonna freak over the Neil Gaiman episode.

But I started pin-tucking the skirt last night! Am I now doomed to marry my own offspring? I really, really hope not.

(Parallel structure makes everything funnier.)

The Neil Gaiman Dr. Who episode? More messing with time, I hope so. Can’t say how much I love that last season and the new Doctor. Tell us more Future Nick, but without too many spoilers please.

Nick From The Future needs to stop exacerbating his causality inversion.
