"Sure, but do me a favor, just call me David or S. Shlekht is my dad."
Thadeus Venture and Sgt. Hatred at the other end of the alcove leading to the dining area where our two characters happen to be sitting are talking about the outsider like he isn't there.
Dr. Venture: "Are you sure this is a good idea Hatred? I mean, the man's related to an international master thief! I don't want him stealing any of my stuff."
Hatred: "I pulled a couple'a strings with some of my old Guild contacts who owed me Doc. I really don't think he'll want to take any of your er, 'valuables.'" Hatred paused and enunciated that last word like he was trying not to say junk. Anyway, the boys get access to some counseling. It's part of your insurance policy."
"Wait, you mean this is costing me money?! I want him out of here Hatred"
|My first real agar slants I was growing cultures on. I was rather proud of myself. They were rich robust cultures and yielded very high quality samples. The bacteriological green thumb. Which I suppose might be thought of as more of a black thumb.|
|I used to make a point of only favoriting things that lots and lots of users hadn't already favorited. In collection though emoticons, etc are an exception. Every so often I'd comb through and remove things that had suddenly or over time become very very popular.|

Time to do my parents, and my many mentors and the tutors I've had over the years proud. It is my duty to become as well educated as I can to in my own small silly part steward this ungrateful community as a way to give back by being an upright citizen with a profession and accomplishments, yes?
