TM #354 - Planes, trains, automobiles - what mode(s) of transport do you prefer and why?



[Locked to those who know he's currently a spy]
Let's just say I'm not too picky. But I kinda would like it if I didn't have to take the cheapest seating all the time.

Of course, when you're on a budget, you don't have much of a choice. And when Morgan and I went on one long search to find information about my mother, we took every mode of transportation there was.

And...now we're kinda in debt for that...

But, we still were able to find something. Not much though.

It was after that long search that I realized I had to go back into the spy game. I had to find out the truth about my mom and that was the only way to do it.

I can't tell Ellie though. Especially not now. With a baby on the way, she's got a lot going on. And she doesn't need to be worried about my safety, you know?

Okay, I realize now I am not answering the question at all...but the whole modes of transportation thing got me thinking about everything that's going on in my life right now. [/locked]

She is? Congratulations!

[identity profile] nerdherdchuck.livejournal.com 2010-10-02 04:41 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, she just told me the other day. I'm going to be an uncle! *grins*

But Awesome seems to be going overboard. He's trying to buy all sorts of things for the baby even though there are still several months until he or she arrives.

[identity profile] powered-otaku.livejournal.com 2010-10-02 10:57 pm (UTC)(link)
I think he is worried. Men worry more than women because they are on the outside of all of it. She knows how she feels and how the baby is doing instinctively. After this time, he should be fine. Is he an only child?

[identity profile] nerdherdchuck.livejournal.com 2010-10-02 11:28 pm (UTC)(link)
I hope so. Cuz if he keeps being so overprotective, I think it'll drive Ellie crazy.

Awesome isn't an only child though. He has a couple younger brothers.

I am surprised. Usually it is men who have no siblings who are most concerned about that kind of thing.

Are they just like him?

But you will be an uncle! That is wonderful!

[identity profile] nerdherdchuck.livejournal.com 2010-10-03 11:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Maybe because he was the oldest, he acted kinda like a parent at times? Like how Ellie can be with me? *shrugs a bit*

Yeah, kinda.

*grins*

That is quite possible. Considering that in many ways Ellie did raise you, I understand why she feels a need to be a parent to you. Sometimes it can be inconvenient, but I sort of wish Kimiko and I could have been the same way.

So, they are all the Awesome family?

Do I give you a cigar or something? A bubblegum one, since I know you do not smoke.

[identity profile] nerdherdchuck.livejournal.com 2010-10-05 11:32 pm (UTC)(link)
It can be at times, but I know she means well. Despite your past with your sister, you do seem to be getting a long better now.

*chuckles* I've called them 'The Awesomes' but their actual family name is Woodcomb.

Usually, the father of the baby gives out cigars to family and close friends when the baby is born. It's sort of a celebration thing.

[identity profile] powered-otaku.livejournal.com 2010-10-09 01:32 pm (UTC)(link)
We are. She actually told me that she is hoping that Jason will propose. She thinks he is the one.

That is an interesting name - Woodcomb. As opposed to a plastic one?

I am not fond of cigars. I am also trying to cut back. With a child now, I do not want to expose her to two-hand smoke.

[identity profile] nerdherdchuck.livejournal.com 2010-10-10 02:10 am (UTC)(link)
Aw. I hope he does.

I...guess? I'm not really sure of the origin of it.

Nah, I'm not really big on cigars either. Plus they give off more smoke than cigarettes.

[identity profile] powered-otaku.livejournal.com 2010-10-10 04:14 am (UTC)(link)
You and me both. I think getting married will be good for Kimiko. I think she needs someone to stand with her. Fortunately, he is not in her field, so they will not be competing at all in that regard.

And they stink more than cigarettes. I do not like the way they smell.

[identity profile] nerdherdchuck.livejournal.com 2010-10-11 12:54 am (UTC)(link)
Well that's good. Competition might hurt the relationship so at least that's one hurdle they avoid.

I'm not too keen on them either.

[identity profile] powered-otaku.livejournal.com 2010-10-11 03:27 am (UTC)(link)
Kimiko is very competitive. They do compete a bit at sports things, but I think they understand that is for fun. It is a good thing they do not work in the same field because she hates to lose in business.

[identity profile] nerdherdchuck.livejournal.com 2010-10-11 03:34 am (UTC)(link)
Friendly competition is okay, but, yeah...serious competition can get a little...crazy.

[identity profile] powered-otaku.livejournal.com 2010-10-11 03:44 am (UTC)(link)
Very much so. Especially with my sister. She never knows when to stop, although she understands it with sports. It is career-stuff where she cannot see the difference.

[identity profile] nerdherdchuck.livejournal.com 2010-10-13 11:46 pm (UTC)(link)
At least she's a good sport.

[identity profile] powered-otaku.livejournal.com 2010-10-14 12:25 am (UTC)(link)
She did not used to be. Not when she played with me. However, a girl at school taught her a lesson when she was about 10.

[identity profile] powered-otaku.livejournal.com 2010-10-16 05:03 am (UTC)(link)
She lost a friend when she got too competitive in a field hockey game. She was a very poor winner and her friend became very angry with her.

[identity profile] nerdherdchuck.livejournal.com 2010-10-18 01:30 am (UTC)(link)
And because of that, they were no longer friends? They must have had a huge fight...

[identity profile] powered-otaku.livejournal.com 2010-10-18 03:41 am (UTC)(link)
Even today they still do not talk. My sister now understands that sports are for fun and that while some competition is expected being a poor winner or loser is not tolerated.

Some people have to learn it the hard way.

[identity profile] powered-otaku.livejournal.com 2010-10-21 03:04 am (UTC)(link)
Much as my sister is a very intelligent woman, sometimes she be incredibly...not stupid...I guess stubborn.

[identity profile] nerdherdchuck.livejournal.com 2010-10-21 03:08 am (UTC)(link)
Stubbornness can make people a bit shortsighted at times.

[identity profile] powered-otaku.livejournal.com 2010-10-22 12:34 am (UTC)(link)
Quite true.
