So last night was good— I think it was last night—until he got all intense this morning, all serious and clingy. I hate starting over every time one of these guys gets too hooked on it, like it’s something special and deep.

I pushed him off until later, and then he turned out to be a traitor or something. Whatever. I was kind of busy after that.

Edgar tried to screw me over this morning and then got all sorry. And then he was trapped, and we both knew that was it, and then I was sorry. I didn’t like him the way he liked me, but he was sorta nice anyway, and it still hurt.

Paranoia-Chick was a blip on the radar, and thank god I didn’t touch her. Would’ve loved to wring the Weasel’s neck, though—rotten little snitch. I’m sure he was up to something.

The Bar Freak was the ultimate. Fat-assed sales-droid who can’t take a hint, just kept coming at me again and again like a wind-up lounge-lizard.

I got him but good— got him close enough to Taser him. Stupid, stubborn jerk—I had to keep at it ‘til the phone call was finally done. Zap! Zap! Take that, you MacIntosh-loving moron!

Four virtual desks and multiple systems, and I win again, even on borrowed computer crap.

Not bad for a neurotic gear-headed bitch.

If half this stuff weren’t illegal, my resume would kick massive butt.

Hi, MF! *waves*

Whatever. I was kind of busy after that.
Why did nobody else notice that one? She slept with the guy, they go into the office and he's dragged away in trouble in no time, and she kind of, "Huh. Oh well, back to work."

The taser scene changed my opinion of Chloe all by itself. It was so damn funny. :D This might be the new approved method of dealing with people who bother you and Just.Won't.Listen:
"Zap! Did THAT get through?"

;)

I know!! I knew right off the bat he'd be bad, but it was like total...I don't know the technical literary term *bangs head* but he was completely unecessary to anything, pretty much. He did his one bit and poof! No more Spencer.

LOL Yes, that taser scene was perfect. I was rolling. ANd with the constant look on her face. That actress is quite funny. Ever catch her on the few Gilmore Girls eps she's been on?

:0 I have not. (The Gilmore Girls give me stress).

But I love her as a dry comic foil. In previous seasons she was kind of whiny. Here (season 5), it was more snark than whine, and what a huge difference that makes.

I am such a sucker for snark. The fact that "Supernatural" and "House" are among my favorite shows speaks to that weakness. :D

Snark and sarcasm, yes. Why I am so in love with X-Files. Well, that and the whole alien/government conspiracy thing. ;-)

(The Gilmore Girls give me stress).

Heh. You know, I was never interested, but decided I needed to see old Jared work since I knew old Jensen work, and got hooked. I mean, total soap opera-ey, but it's so amusing because I think they spied on my mom and I. O___o.
