“No context for you.” :-)

Some things are just… funny, especially when seen without context. Although, of course, I tend to provide that context anyway… unless doing so is dangerous, and then I’ll still provide the context, but hide it under so much additional information that no one will notice.

This one’s slightly relevant, in a very past-tense sort of way, to something my clone-sibling is working on. And yes, I emphasized the first-person pronoun deliberately  in the previous sentence: I wouldn’t want Paul to be mistaken for anyone else’s clone-sibling, y’know? (*shakes head at irony*)

Heard that yesterday morning, when my clone-sibling was talking about a conversation he’d had with a co-worker (or cow-orker?) a few weeks ago. The co-worker/cow-orker didn’t know rebooting the Barracuda (computer security thing) was even an option, despite this individual being the IT person and thus the resident “expert” on such matters.

About Thomas Weaver

For several years, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom (editor). I'm physically disabled, and I currently live with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.
