Transcription

[[Patty continues her discussion with Dexter and Trish about how she broke up with Mark.]]
Dexter: What was this project Mike was working on?
Patty: I don't remember anymore. It was a big deal, though. I didn't find out until after the fact, but he had potential investors lined up.

Patty: He had talked vaguely about starting his own software company, but I thought it was some pie-in-the-sky long term plan. I didn't realize he had actual code written yet.

Patty: I think he was waiting to tell me about it after the wedding, like it was some sort of surprise. And I destroyed it all in a few petty, vindictive keystrokes.
[[Trish and Dexter exchange an uncertain glance.]]

Trish: [Annoyed] I-if y-you ask m-me, h-he d-deserves s-some of th-the b-blame for n-not k-keeping any b-backups...
Patty: True, but he wouldn't have needed them if I hadn't interfered...

  • Nothing says "Good morning" quite like a sixteen pound cat climbing on top of you and "making biscuits" on your bladder... 2 days ago
  • My family got me a shirt that reads "My password is the last six digits of pi"... which is funny, yes, but the crypto-nerd in me wants to amend it with "but six numeric digits isn't enough entropy for a truly secure password..." 18 days ago
  • In another weird numerical coincidence, one of my two-factor, one-time authentication codes this morning was one digit off from being the first six digits of pi (something like "314592"). Did a double take when I first saw it. 18 days ago
  • To those of you who like weird numerical coincidences, today's strip marks #4444 by my internal reckoning. Technically, there are 4532 updates in the archive, but that includes guest strips and other oddities. 21 days ago
  • My new favorite simile: "She felt horribly out of place, like a vegetarian in a Brazilian steakhouse..." 1 month ago


But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and he will stand upon the earth at last. And after my body has decayed, yet in my body I will see God! — Job 19:25-26 (NLT)
