The computer? You don't have an iPhone, Droid, smartphone, iPad, netbook, laptop, and two desktops, one of which is capable of running Crysis at full settings(aw, who am I kidding, nothing can run Crysis at max specs)? Neither do I (pats laptop gently). But I do believe that there should be at least one computer in every household per occupant capable of using it- just like cars!

1. Are those two Jet-Roomba "kids" plus Mieville carrying off Pintsize?  (looks like it)

2. Love that Hannelore is growing her hair out.  It would be intersting to see what Hanners would look like with today's QC artistic style as opposed to when she first stalked down a heartbroken Marten way back in comic #515 :wink: .

3. I think "inscrutable" would be a proper word to describe Marten's moment of clarity.

4. And I wish I had medication for moments like that in my life.  (though I suppose alcohol ocassionally suffices...)

5. Also, Rocket Roomba and its side-kick (-cat) The Mieville Kid.

Well, this was a pleasant departure from the current arc! 

Pintsize is going to be getting a few dents from the upcoming "landing".  Cats always land on their feet, but AnthroPC's aren't quite that sophisticated!

In addition to the one where Mieville straps an engine on his back?

Interesting that Hanners says the flying roombas (sounds like a trappese act) were running up a heavy electricity bill. So presumably their engines are ducted-fans rather than jets? Or ion drives? Or gravito-magnetic propulsion (take that General Relativity!)?

Should it be considered a big revelation that Hannelore's apartment has the ability to provide electricity to at least 5 heavy-consumption electronics without blowing any fuses?  I mean that's not normal for an apartment, right?

I'm thinking there's probably a German 'composite' word that would serve Marten's needs. If not, I'm sure a native speaker could cobble one up.

I take my oatmeal (is that porridge or gruel?) with sugar (well, Splenda; it's kind of like sugar. Kind of.) and salt. Don't know where that puts me on the weirdness spectrum.

Depends.  Instant, it's gruel.  "Quick" oats or traditional, it's porridge.  Grueldom is more a matter of consistancy, I believe.  

Splenda is not like sugar.  Nothing is like sugar...  well, except more sugar.  

Brown sugar and raisins for me, a splash of milk to make it more gruel-ly.  No salt, watching the BP.  

And what do the sisters keep in that cauldron?  Porridge, or gruel?

Mieville's got a pretty good grip -- I wonder if he's one of those cats with polydactyly and therefore, potentially, an opposable thumb-like digit . . .

The zhōu looks delightful... what exactly is it, though?  A white (rice-based?) porridge?  And what are the mix-ins?  The yutio looks like frybread, done crisp, very nice. 

Do you dip? 

As for eggs in your grits, I hear it's an acquired taste, probably born of expediency.  Never been fond of grits in the first place, myself.  Been told I've never had good ones... I'm too far north.

You do have to understand, there's a lot more corn and wheat in the US and Canada than rice, so that's what we make our porridge out of.

And yes, Grits and Oatmeal lovers, that is the technical name for our favorite meals: Grits = ground corn porridge; Oatmeal = ground oat porridge.

Hanners is indeed adorable as usual!  My guess in the pill department is that she is taking Risperidone which is somewhat stronger, and wonderfully effective.

The zhōu looks delightful... what exactly is it, though?  A white (rice-based?) porridge?  And what are the mix-ins?  The yutio looks like frybread, done crisp, very nice. Do you dip?
Essentially zhōu is a porridge, normally made from well-cooked rice, but in northern China (where it is too cold for rice cultivation) cornmeal, millet, barley, or sorghum are often used instead. Depending on how it is prepared, it can be a thin broth, or thick like Western porridge. Many different things can be mixed with the zhōu, including meat, eggs, fish, beans, and vegetables. The "mix-ins" in the photo are rusōng (shredded dried meat; normally pork except among Muslim Chinese who use beef or chicken), and zhci (pickled mustard stem). Yutio is indeed a "frybread" (I had to look that up, I had never heard the term before), and you certainly can dip. Here is a "breakfast of champions" Guandong-style, comprising zhōu broth, fish, egg, and meat (probably liver :-) ), served with yutio.

Hannelore may have negotiated with the landlord to upgrade her electrical service to power the cleaning equipment.

Naaah, her dad sent her a miniature nuclear reactor he invented on his space station.

That occurred to me, but then she wouldn't have been talking about increased electric bills.

I like it. She can use the reactor to sterilize the dishes.

I was digging this Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal, but Sam's Club discontinued it, or maybe Kashi did... anyway, I stocked up when I saw the stock dwindling, but even that had to run out eventually. Then, I decided to try the Kashi cinnamon shredded wheat cereal, which I liked, it just never filled me up. Now, I'm trying this almond flax and it's just not working for me at all.

Odd segue. I'm not sure that Sam's Club advertises on message boards though. I actually tried Go Lean once, but it tasted like sawdust to me. Teach me to to try my grandmothers cereal.

Does anyone else think that Faye is just searching for reasons to not come out of her comfort zone at this point?

Of course the whole Sven situation was a setback, but in a way, she really went out of her way to keep him as emotionally distant as possible. It was as if she used sex to prevent making an emotional connection with Sven. Before they hooked up, they were on the path to become pretty close friends, even as they were antagonizing each other. Did Faye start a physical relationship to derail the feelings that she and Sven were developing?

I also think that Faye is the type of person who (like me) is afraid to pursue what they really want, not because they are afraid they will fail, but that they are afraid they will succeed.

If Faye and Angus begin a genuine romantic relationship, Faye will no longer be able to hide in her little (emotional) cave, whatever happens, things will be different, and that frightens her. (It scares the shit out of me!)

Then again, the situation about Marigold is touchy.
I wonder what could make all of this easier. Besides Marigold finding someone, I mean.

Also, am I the only one amused by Marten jumping from sex-toys to guitars, like it's almost the same to him? Spoken like a true guitarist.  :-D
