Since I can't in fact spend all my free time in the garage this summer, what should my other August project be? I'm leaning towards writing a small, instructional handbook. Which prospective title sounds best?

A) "How Not To Use The Danger Room: A Self-Help Manual"
B) "Welcome to the X-Men (Here's How You Survive The Experience Without Getting Culled For The Good of The Group)"
C) "Zen and the Art of Not Assaulting Your Coworkers"
D) "Scotch, Redheads and Very Fast Motorcycles: Coping Strategies From The Trenches"

Thoughts?

Definitely "D"

So that the rest of us may learn your wisdom and put it to good use.

Maybe when you're a little older.

:P That reminds me of a story from back home...

...And if you're going to really right a book, Mr. Summers, shouldn't it have a more positive title? Otherwise people might not want to read it.

Possibly. Then again, for the people who don't read it and need to, I can always use it as a blunt instrument and beat them over the head with it. Osmosis is highly underrated as a learning methodology.

o.O;;; I don't think they mean it like that. And that's not the best way to get people to read your book, if you don't mind me saying so.

Harry's again?

I'm still trying to figure out what the note I wrote myself after the last time we were at Harry's was all about.

Ah.

"You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty psyched."

That one?

From: [identity profile] x-cyclops.livejournal.com
... still not sure what the hell I was apparently on about. Unless I was trying to create a fight song for the team, which is a very scary thought.

Hmm. You know, I think it's unfair that I get Hospitalized Nathan (with new, improved groaning action!) for company and my better half gets you and liquor. Someone should fix this.

By which I mean: Dance for me, monkeys.

From: [identity profile] x-cynosure.livejournal.com
Are you somehow suggesting that I have not been the frequent company of Hospitalized Nathan? Not to mention the stint of playing teleporter vs speedster with Dr. Voght to maintain my claim on the bedside chair.

No, I'm saying you've failed to entertain me. Alas, my wiley feminine wiles do nothing.

Even if you're not serious, Mr. Summers, I'd like a pamphlet on Letter A.

Date: 2009-08-12 02:03 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-cyclops.livejournal.com
You and I should probably talk more about this at some point.

From: [identity profile] x-network.livejournal.com
Is it okay if we talk in a few weeks? I'm going home for a family vacation on Friday.

Date: 2009-08-12 02:15 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-cyclops.livejournal.com
Sure thing.

I'd happily join you for that scotch, although I seem to be lacking my own redhead and motorcycle.

Date: 2009-08-12 02:04 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-cyclops.livejournal.com
The latter could probably be fixed, you know.

As for the redhead, you don't strike me as the type, anyway.

From: [identity profile] x-sway.livejournal.com
Really now? And what steps need to be taken on my part to see this come to pass?

Sad but true. I like to think I'm not overly picky, but I seem to go in for the tall, dark, and handsome stereotype.

Date: 2009-08-12 02:17 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-cyclops.livejournal.com
If you:

a) talk nicely to me.
b) don't put any of your teammates in the infirmary.
c) don't blow anything up.

I have a guy you could meet who's been known to get his hands on nice bikes that only need a little bit of work. Unfortunately he's also short, bald, and has something of a beer gut. But we can't have everything, can we?

You know, I'm just going to be glad the adjectives are all on 'motorcycles'.

I would never be so uncouth (or inaccurate) as to call you fast.

Date: 2009-08-12 02:33 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-jeangrey.livejournal.com
No, but given your mood I wouldn't have put it past you to put some other, more accurate and choice adjectives there.

I had an E). It was "All of the above." But then I thought I was being overambitious.
