OH the conversations.

Well, recreations of conversations... and I'm not making this up. NO REALLY I'm not.

(Rhiannon was playing with canned spray air stuff. )
Me: That was one of the neat things about dating geeks. They *always* have that stuff around.
Rhiannon: It doesn't last very long
Me: yeah, I'll usually go through about 2 cans when blowing out my computer.
Rhiannon: What?
Me: You know, when you crack open your case and clean out your computer.
Rhiannon: What would you open?
Me: The case.
Rhiannon: **very confused look**
Me: The case to your computer.
Rhiannon: You mean the modem?
Me: **very confused face** no. The modem is usually just a card that allows you to connect to the internet via a phone cord.
Rhiannon: Then what do you mean?
Me: The *case* to your *computer*
Rhiannon: The monitor?
Me: no... okay... (here I resort to pantomime again) This is the monitor. This is the keyboard. This big thing overhere... that's the computer.
Rhiannon: Oh! you mean the tower.
Me: no, I mean the computer. Some of them just happen to be towers.
Rhiannon: oh, see... mine is an e-machine. I think it's like.. .welded shut or something. I don't know.

And then a customer walked up. Thank god.

Then later at the grocery store she kept insisting that my sushi smelled really bad. "OH MY GOD, IT STINKS SO MUCH! Ewwwwww! I HATE seafood. It's SOO GROSS"
"Hey, this isn't seafood. It's just veggie rolls."
"It's sushi. OH ICK I CAN SMELL IT FROM HERE."
"Rhiannon, it's just a veggie roll. No fish."
"I don't see how you can eat that stuff GUH IT SMELLS SO BAAAD."
"Rhiannon, it's rice, a lil nori, carrots, cucumbers and a tiny bit of avocado. That's it. No fish. No fish at all. NO FISH. No seafood."

So she finally shut up. And then, she wanted to know if I wanted to hang out tonight. heheheh.

I've been told that a vacuum shouldn't be used to clean a computer, that it's better to gently blow air than to suck stuff off.

herm... that uh ... well... nevermind.

Nori is kelp, a veggie.
It lives in the sea, but it's a veggie.

Cucumbers are pretty much vegetabla non grata around me at the moment; Merlin went through a classic episode of anaphylactic shock because somebody put down a plate of the things next to her, just this Tuesday. Injections of epinephrine and various antihistamines, getting to go first at the emergency room, doctors and nurses all over the place... the whole bit. It's kind of nice to see that they can do that, but on the other hand, if they hadn't she would have DIED. Thud. No more Merlin ever.

Yeah, I'm a little freaky 'bout that.

Your wife has entirely too many allergies and medical issues, Gates.
Tell her to stop.

They set the cucumbers NEXT to her? She was just NEAR THEM and she went into anaphylactic shock? That's just *incredible*...
Can a bubble suit be too far away?

Am I uh .... allowed to talk about the cucumbers? Mention them? Given your reaction, I'm thinking that maybe even that is too strong a dose.
Heh. Why not just give me a list of things I cannot talk about for fear of them sending you into a big freak out due to your wife's incredibly powerful allergic reactions to them.

I bet the "they" in question are, in fact, stupid people.
