Default February 9



Today you get a double-header from Derek. The half you'll be expecting is the latest Smallville episode, "Vengeance." (It's got vengeance!)


The other half you won't be expecting. Remember when Marc left, and I published an ENT fiver he'd written some time ago for a 5ME "guest event" that never materialized? He wasn't the only one -- Derek had written his too. (This is impressive if you know that the event never got past the hypothetical stage and thus never had a deadline.) So, now that the event is definitely off (though something like it may yet occur), there's no reason to hold back Derek's fiver any longer. Here's Five-Minute "Dawn."


Does this presage more ENT activity to come? Mmmmaybe.*


* Yes.

Clark: In front of the impressionable kids watching this show? You're sick!

That's one of my favourite words. It amuses me to think that people and objects were being thrown out of windows so often that they had to coin a new word to express the concept.

Zshaar: Yes, we're looking for our raider ship. And I suppose the pilot as well.

Wasn't this a TNG episode?

Apparently it was. The weird thing is I actually hadn't read as far as the log entry before I posted that snide comment above. Eerie. Dammit, Derek, stop reading my mind!

I actually seem to recall that that joke fell into place on its own. However, it's been two years or so since writing it, so I could be wrong.

As Zeke said, it was originally being prepared for an ENT event, so it made sense that he would need to hold on to it for a while.

Think of them as aging like a good merlot. "We will post no fiver before its time."

That's one of my favourite words. It amuses me to think that people and objects were being thrown out of windows so often that they had to coin a new word to express the concept.
Yeh, great word, as opposed to transfenestration (if you've read Pynchon's Vineland), which is when one jumps through a closed window (though I suppose it would also apply in the case of Axel Foley.)
