Today’s Cryptic Statement

Dear rest of the week:

You’re going to have to work hard to match what Monday’s been up to. And it’s not even noon yet.

Get on it.

Uh-oh–bad sign. Although, my dream last night about being a time-travelling superagent running from dinosaurs, superassassins, big green things with teeth, giant sea reptiles, and associated nasties was surprisingly vivid.

I’m going to go back to eagerly anticipating the Ninth Doctor playing Malekith the Accursed in Thor 2. Christopher Eccelston is going to pwnzor Thor so hard…

I mean, the guy used to pwn freaking Daleks in his spare time, and now he’s got mooks and kickass spaceships of doom and other stuff. Hemsworth is screwed.

Maybe it’s my negative nature, but I read “..what Monday’s been up to,” and thought, “It’s been up to no good.” I hope that the other folks here–all of whom seem to see this in a positive light–are right and I’m wrong.

Also John: if I am right, DON’T CHALLENGE KARMA LIKE THAT.

Well, if Scalzi wants the rest of the week to get on the task of matching what Monday morning’s been up to, I’d say that’s a win.

I now have “Silly Love Songs” stuck in my head. [sings] Oh no.

Yeah, I’m on call this week, so I really don’t want to hear about this week getting up to anything at all. This week should be very quiet and as non-memorable as possible. NEXT week can get up to whatever it damn well pleases.

Hmmm. My guess:

The Ohio fault line got jiggity in the early AM, and a chasm split the Scalzi compound lawn, deep enough to hit prehistoric ground water, and bringing forth giant, albino piranhas. Woken by their faithful dog, Daisy, the Scalzi’s were able to evacuate to the roof before they were eaten alive by the mammoth, toothy fish, whereupon Ghlaghghee called the Great Cat Council and an emergency evac team, led by empathic dolphins, was dispatched to airlift the entire compound to safety.

The end

Hmm… given the ambiguous wording I’m going to guess,
1)Aliens have contacted you and want your autograph
2)You woke this morning to discover the cats had discovered how to get at the bacon and tape.
