Smells Like Muse and Spirits

  • Jul. 9th, 2005 at 3:04 AM
Rorschach
The phone rang once. I grabbed it, put it against my head and said, "Hello?"

Click.

"They hung up," I said to the Muse, and put the receiver back into the cradle.

"Who was it?" she asked.

"They didn't say."

She returned to her knitting. "It was probably Houdini, calling from beyond the grave."

I sat back beside her and picked up her yarn ball to idly play with. "What makes you say that?"

"He called earlier, but didn't want to leave a message."

"So you're saying I've got a spirit phone all of a sudden?"

"Yep," she said, her knitting needles a blur of motion. "Verizon called earlier, said some kind of mumbo-jumbo to me, wouldn't stop talking. I don't know what they said, really, but I told 'em to go ahead and upgrade whatever they wanted to just to shut them up."

"Um."

"At least Houdini was polite when he called," she said. "That fucking Dillinger can go screw himself. I don't care how big his dick is, he's a son of a bitch on the phone. Houdini at least was a gentleman."

"You're creeping me out, Muse."

"Hey, buddy, you aren't the one who had to chat with Ted Bundy. Talk about creepy!" She paused in her knitting and considered a moment. "Kind of charming, though. Very flirty. Too bad he's dead, he's just my type."

"Now you're really creeping me out."

She shrugged. "It's a living."

The phone rang suddenly, and I jumped.

"Get that, would you?" the Muse asked.

"Not for a million bucks, baby."

She snorted and dropped her knitting, jumped up and ran for the phone. She got it before the answering machine picked up. "Hello? Yes. Oh, just a minute, I'll check." She held the phone down and put her palm over it. "Someone named Miss Borden. She wants to know if you're available."

"Cut it out, Muse."

"Hmm. She said something like that too, actually." She giggled. "She sounds sort of cute, dude. You should axe her out."

I got up off the couch and headed for the door. "Okay, I'm leaving. You call Verizon and get my phone switched back, or I'm going to have to bring that midget from Poltergeist here to kick your ass."

"Yeah, she can have my ass when Bundy is done with it. He's dreeeeeeeeamy!"

"Fix it!"

She harumphed as I slammed the door shut behind me.

Boy, the love I get from a Watchmen history. I just the other day had someone want to hug me in awe because I actually bought those comics as they came out every month, instead of as a graphic novel years later.

I'm the man!

but then, we already knew that. ;)

*grabs her hubby's Watchmen tee shirt out of the closet and snuggles it*

Hrrmmm... :)

Wonder if/when they'll ever get that damn movie made. It's been in movie limbo hell for years. :(

Boy, it'd be swell if Alan Moore was at Wizard World. But I couldn't get that lucky, I suppose. At least Alex Ross will be there. And Jim Lee. And Frank Miller. And Tim Vigil (oh my fucking god - FAUST! *bows down*) And Joe Quesada. And John Cassaday (the new Astonishing X-Men, which, OMG! have I mentioned KICKS ALL POSSIBLE ASS?!?!?!?!)...

*head a-splodes*

OOH! AND KEVIN SMITH AND JASON MEWES! :P

Now... to come up with a money-making scheme to finance my road trip.... *plots*

:D

wow, that's more than I've posted in like, ever. :) You bring out the best in me, peaches. :P

Well, babycakes, that's because I am an inspirational dude. I like knowing what's in the ol' Beckyhead of yours, even when it's spooky. So don't up and vanish on me, dammit! I don't want to have to come down there and kick your ass!

I'll send an exorcist right over. Don't want you getting any weird bleeding from the walls or anything.

No,no. If the walls bleed I can open up a little theme park and makes oodles of money. Now for a name.

Too bad it's not just a restaurant. Liz's Bleed 'n' Feed strikes a chord with me.

Think On It

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want yourself to be happy, practice compassion.
