I've never met you, and yet I have a very clear idea of what you look like. You look like a 1940's (I think) style woman w/ red hair and very red lips smoking a cig. And sometimes you wear some sort of fish-bowl space helmet, but not that often, I hope.


I'd be vewy, vewy wary of them 'tarians. I hear they've adapted Tom Cruise recruitment tactics.

only in space, Matt, obvs.


I'd thought the helmet might also come in handy for around the house cleaning, to protect from dust and noxious fumes from cleaning agents and the like. That's mainly how I use mine, anyway.

Did you really say Julian Sanchez looked like a scruffy hipster? And does he?


Don't forget that the space helmet has magical blondifying powers.


yes, Julian Sanchez looks like a scruffy hipster. but cute. and not in a bad way, I mean, most of my friends are scruffy hipsters so it's not like I don't approve. I just imagined him to be more majestic or something. I mean, he's THE Julian Sanchez.

  • Confused by our comment policy?

    We're testing a strong CC license as a form of troll repellant. Does that sound strange? Read this thread. (I know, it's long. Keep scrolling. Further. Further. Ah, there.) So basically, we figure trolls will recognize that selling coffee cups and t-shirts is the best revenge, and will keep away. If we're wrong about that, at least someone can still sell the cups and shirts. (Sigh.)
