Oh, uh, this? This is nothing. Just a little something I came up with at the last minute. Inconveniencists, get it? Ah ha, ah ha, ha heuhhhhhgh. Aw, fuck all of you. It's August.
Footnotes: Cameos in this one include Karen Core, who
explained the worm virus to me, New Yorkers Megan Kelso and Mike Buckley,
moisture hater Jim Fisher, and myself in a rare dual role, as both myself
and as Alcor the Inconveniencist. Michael Kirby is Mizar. Mizar and Alcor
are the names of two of the stars in the Big Dipper. In fairness to Verizon
I will explain that my phone stopped working on Monday, the nice robot lady
in the voice mail labyrinth promised they'd fix it by Wednesday, Tuesday night
it started working again as mysteriously as it had stopped, so I cancelled
the repair order and then of course it stopped working again Wednesday morning,
when I called back and the robot lady in the voice mail labyrinth promised
it would be fixed by Friday. I finally got a human agent on the line and explained
that I was a free-lancer who had to e-mail in my work and had a deadline at
five on Friday, so it absolutely had to be fixed by then. The guy came to
fix it Saturday morning.
