I keep a list of quotes on my phone. They’re gathered by me or my friends and added in one by one. They’re usually created during roleplaying sessions, as we have a tendency to say stupid or hilarious things.
I like this idea. Moments of hilarity can fly past. They cheer everyone, raise spirits and generally make lives better for a moment, but they’re fleeting. Transitory. Some could say all the more precious because of that. I prefer to think that moments like these can be re-celebrated! Sharing a list of hilarious statements can reignite this joy and share it to others who weren’t there in the first place.
Because of this, I have a few of my favourite moments to share. You may not know the names now, but you may know us a little bit better afterwards.
Adam: *creepy whisper* I broke Obfuscate to penetrate you.
(Sigg had a bet that no-one would die.)
Jim: I’m eating a hot-dog.
Bill: Sigg or White will go upstairs and check the rooms.
Angus: Sigg can go upstairs, I’ll eat a hot-dog.
Jim: *sigh*. I get no successes. Too busy watching White eat my hot-dog.
Angus: it’s delicious.
Jim: I breathe on the window and write “I will kill you.”
Angus: I SMS him back “You will owe me $20.”
Michael: Did anyone bring a ten-foot-pole?
Evan: No, but I have rope and a wheel of cheese.
Jim: But the rule book is nice, has great art and stories, so it’s not a chore like others can be.
Ben: Like Deathwatch. Which is pretty, but so disjointed that you think you know what the rules are but can’t find them anywhere. Leading to the conclusion that what everyone thinks is a ruling is actually a shared hallucination about a book.
Ed: I punch him in the face.
Ed: Because I’m a very angry person who can only express myself through violence.
Kane: And I would have had the computer too if it weren’t for those meddling orbital lasers!
David: You have arrived into the astral plane of “All the porn on the Internet.”
Kane: Not my fault.
Chris: Battle plan!
1: Cast heart strings.
2: Cast friendly face.
3: Yell “Don’t kill me, I’m an orphan!”
Listening to: The rain on the deck, trying to sleep.
