Trevor and Jason's 'Thing Wot's Sort Of Like An Advent Calendar', #28 - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
Trevor and Jason's 'Thing Wot's Sort Of Like An Advent Calendar', #28
Low-key Holiday, with a minimum of bickering and only one serious injury (one of the Household-related presents was a mandoline-slicer, which Mum promptly cut herself on washing it), so all in all one of the better recent experiences. I find that I approach the holiday season as a whole with much less dread when I go into it knowing beforehand that we're not going to be subjecting ourselves to the all-day ordeal of driving up to the Relations and back.

28.) If your character’s life was a genre, what would it be?

In his darker moments, Trevor worries that he's a secondary character in somebody else's romantic comedy, the beta-male Duckie type whose sole purpose for existence is to be the one who's destined never to come good with his own life no matter how genre-savvy he is. In even darker moments than those, he suspects he's part of the sort of morality play that the BBC would make a smashing miniseries out of. This is about where someone will point out to him that even when he's part of someone else's Those Two Guys his life fits pretty firmly into the category of buddy-movies, and if it's a BBC morality play at all it's an episode of Top Gear where something eventually catches on fire. He... thinks he's sort of okay with that.

Jason knows perfectly well what genre he thinks he's starring in:

(Inner Trevor doen't even know whether to start about the biology-fail there, or just be thankful that Inner Jason can't actually draw...)

Mandoline slicers are evil but wonderful! I know someone who cut off the tip of a finger with one, so a slice is getting off pretty light!

She managed to fumble one of the detachable blades and dropped it on her finger from some height -- it bled for hours. I think I'm going to be the one looking after this device from here on out...

(i was just thinking you - was discussing brainweasels w/ husband)

The week after said friend did this (when we were visiting), I sliced the tip of my finger nearly off with a paring knife; a week later, Spouse!Man did the same with a french knife.

Cooking is dangerous!

Damn brainweasels get everywhere, don't they. Perhaps we should encourage them to play with the mandoline... ;)

They are dangerous! I have one but I am always scared to use it. Still, it does simplify making julienned carrots.

I still haven't gotten up the nerve to actually use it for anything...
