Swank

Check out my high-techness to the right. Yes, it's one of those fancy counter dealies. I started at 111, and I'm pretty sure most hits since are me messing with it, but still. I might as well have built a robot.

I'm not so much in the mood to go to work today. Oh well, too bad for me. Means I need to do something messy when I get there.

Because you are a spaz.

It was another very ordinary day in T-town. Grechen checked her watch. Austin was late again. They had agreed to meet here outside her favorite restaurant before they went over to Austin's place to watch a video, Less Than Zero, and now he was twenty minutes late. Grechen was ready to give up on him and go home alone when a City Bus pulled up in front of her. Grechen stared in amazement and her face turned Baby shit green as she saw Robert Downey Jr. stepping out of the vehicle. He looked SO great! He was handsome and tanned, wearing a dark suit, a cool Do Rag and red Birkenstocks. In fact his appearance reminded her a little of one of his movie characters, Bruce. ''Hi. Any idea if I can get good Root Beer in this place?'' he asked. ''Yes, they have the very best Root Beer here,'' Grechen responded. Before she could say anything more he was already walking towards the restaurant. He was just about to go inside when he stopped and turned to face her, ''Would you like to join me?'' he said. ''Eltavation,'' was all Grechen could say as her brain fogged and her heart skipped a beat. He shrugged and stared at her with a puzzled expression on his face. Grechen thought for a minute. Austin or Downey? Austin or Downey? A difficult decision. (NOT!) ''I mean, yes, I'd love to join you,'' she said. Downey flashed her a mischievous grin and ushered her in to the restaurant. Politely, he pulled up a Recliner for them to sit on. Grechen tried to think of something light and funny to say but when she opened her mouth all that came out was ''You are too Fabulous for words.'' Downey just wrinkled his nose at her. ''What would you like to eat?'' he asked. ''I always have the Rutabaga and eggs here,'' she responded. When the waiter came over, Downey ordered Rutabaga and eggs for Grechen and Root Beer for himself. ''So what do you do for fun here in T-town'' Downey asked. ''Mostly Horseback riding,'' Grechen said. Downey seemed a bit restless, so she reached out and grabbed hold of his hand. ''I like cows,'' she said loudly and everybody in the restaurant turned to look at them. ''Are you nuts?'' Downey said. ''Oh Sweetie-Pie!'' Grechen said. Downey stood up. ''Wait! We haven't had dessert. You have to try their wonderful Cheesecake,'' she said. ''I think I will just take my Root Beer and run,'' Downey said. Grechen stepped toward him and planted a big wet kiss on his Knee cap. Downey, clearly terrified, let out a strange Chickens-like sound and moved surprisingly fast towards the door. ''You don't really have to go do you?'', Grechen said. ''I'll be back,'' he said, unconvincingly. ''Oh well, at least I got to kiss him,'' Grechen thought, watching him disappear out the door. Happy and content with her day she went home to watch Less Than Zero for the 20th time.

Joy! That made me happy. Dating in T-Town, you never know what may happen.

Made a terrible punctuation error, so I had to resubmit. Here's the short version:

I tried to pad your count, but it seems too clever for that.

And speaking of clever, it took me a full minute to understand what you were talking about.
