Life with the Gojirawitzes + Numath

Numath: "Should I make more coffee?"
Me: "Mmmmaybe."

Half an hour later...
Me: "Was there going to be coffee?"
Adam: "Do you want coffee?"
Me: *looks at Adam*

Half an hour later...
Adam: "So did you want coffee?"
Me: "YES"
Adam: "Are you sure?"
Me: "I HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR NOTHING ELSE FOR THE BETTER PART OF AN HOUR"
Adam: "How much coffee should I make?"
Me: "YES"
Adam: "How many cups?"
Me: "ALL OF THEM"

He still hasn't ground the beans. He's all like "Are you sure? Because you hesitated..."

Also I did a clever medievalist thing that I can't tell you about but you probably wouldn't care about anyway. Some days everything I do has three layers of stuff no one will ever get just because I'd be unutterably bored otherwise. I do things in layered spirals to entertain myself. I'm sure no one else gets anything out of it.

Stoppard for the win.

Ah, but with Adam and I, it is additionally a Paarfi of Roundwood reference!

I get the same roundaboutness with the boy when I think I'm being thoroughly straightforward, especially when it comes to foodstuphs-prep. [And coffee *is* foodstuphs, dang it.]

Then again, "Reader, I married him", if only for the entertainment value.

I want coffee, too. The coffee at your house rules.

I should've partaken when I was there. Shoot. I'll have to correct that. (I *did* partake of The Middleman while there, though, so there's that...)

For the record, I should note that "half an hour" is a subjective term, and might not agree with reality.

I expected as much...

I would care about the clever medievalist thing! That is exactly the sort of thing I like! Or perhaps I am the only person ever to use a reproduction Book of Hours (Jean, duc de Berry) as supporting evidence to convince a five-year-old to wear a sweater.

I shall tell you when I see you Wednesday! :)

I want to know about the medievalist thing!

Last night I presented my first scroll. It was also my first Court at which I was the Herald. o.O It was fun! But I messed up his Excellency's last name. ~_~ Tricky German syllables are tricky.
12th-Dec-2010 02:25 pm (UTC) - Color me Curious
Which Excellency? And whose Court?

I love the subtle Brust references that you folks throw into everyday speech. It makes me feel less of a freak.

Clever medievalist thing? I would care, except for the part where you say you can't tell.....

Shakespeare, Stoppard and Brust, for the win!
12th-Dec-2010 09:01 pm (UTC)
So did you ever, y'know, get the coffee? *laughs*
13th-Dec-2010 04:40 am (UTC)
Does it matter?
It's the CONCEPT of getting the coffee that is important.

I know no one like that.

Nope.

"I HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR NOTHING ELSE FOR THE BETTER PART OF AN HOUR"

For values of "asking" that are "yelling at someone who didn't originally have the all-too-vague "Mmmmaybe" directed at them.

You know, just sayin'...
13th-Dec-2010 02:21 pm (UTC)
Oh, not yelling - just emphasis. And he was in the room and laughed at the maybe. He was not unaware.
16th-Dec-2010 04:08 am (UTC)
How many cups? ALL OF THEM.

I love that.

This is how I roll.
