Stuff...  
A: Spazzychic has made it home safely.

B: December 8th is Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day.

    Favorites include...

    - Show extreme ignorance in operating regular technology. Pay phones should be a complete mystery (try placing the receiver in odd places). Chuckle knowingly at cell phones.

    - Walk up to random people and say "WHAT YEAR IS THIS?" and when they tell you, get quiet and then say "Then there's still time!" and run off.

    - Stand in front of a statue (any statue, really), fall to your knees, and yell "NOOOOOOOOO"

    - Stare at newspaper headlines and look astonished.

    - Take some trinket with you (it can be anything really), hand it to some stranger, along with a phone number and say "In thirty years dial this number. You'll know what to do after that." Then slip away.

    - Discover and become obsessed with one trivial aspect of technology, like automatic grocery doors. Stay there for hours playing with it.

Stolen gleefully from mosellegreen

C: I forgot what C was.

D: If you need to upgrade your video card software stuff and the company has software for series 1000 and 1300 and no 1100 series, but your card is 1100 series, would the 1000 series work?

Yeah, I'm torn between that and "What year is this??"

Yeah, but . . . it occurs to me to wonder how many people will actually wait and call the number. (Maybe I'll tell them to wait till the 17th of January, 2008, or some such . . . something close to make them curious.)

If I had the funds currently, I think I'd set up a cell phone around that time and leave a voice-mail message on it. Maybe, something like, "Good day. You have reached TDS, Temporal Displacement Services helping you with all your translocation needs. Please leave your coordinates and 16-digit ID number at the beep. Remember, the clock is ticking and preparation is urgent!"

Still, no harm done...

Didn't know you were a Dresden Codak fan...

Never heard of it before now.

Yeah, but I stole it from mosellegreen. She may be a fan...

How was your first day back at work?

Came out okay... included one last-minute puzzle to liven up the routine dutyage.

Sounds par for the course.

That's just beautiful! I wish I could do that here, but people already look at me as if I come from another planet.

Besides, being in Japan is like time traveling every day. I can have sushi served to me on a conveyor belt, play the latest interactive game software, and return to an apartment that has no central heating and a school with porcelain holes in the floor instead of sit-down toilets.

But maaan... have extra fun with that, if you intend on going through with the gag!

I thought there were certain places around Tokyo that costumes were considered pretty normal?

I HOPE I remember to do the gag, it depends on what's occurring that day...

Heh. My first thought was woot, Doctor Fun!
My second thought was Scotty in ST:IV... "Hello Computer"

Both are fun ^_^
