I will have to miss playing Soccer Girl in two weeks to reprise my role as Engineer Girl at a [Company] Lecture dinner. (Another female speaker.) :^)

How come you get to have all the superhero jobs?

From: Some Guy
To: Some Woman
Because my X-chromosomes are in high demand. :^)

Instead of a cape, I am sporting a purple lab coat. All of the coolness, with none of the risks. (We all know what happens to superheroes who wear capes!)

It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it...

    I miss my copy of the Incredibles; an evil (or more accurately, idiot) villian pilfered my copy :-(

    • I don't buy very many movies because most don't have a lot of rewatching potential, but I bought The Incredibles as soon as it came out.
    • They stole that bit from the Watchmen [], so you could always go read that while you wait for some Supers to get that back for you.

      P.S. Are they going to have to cancel the soccer game for lack of ladies?
      • Quite possibly. I'm going to give the head soccer guy advance warning so that he can (hopefully) scrounge up another female.

        I never thought I would have to prioritize my Super duties.
  • I had no idea that you were Czarina Burrito and Some Woman. I friended each one separately and independently. Guess there's just no denying the power and lure of the Purple Lab Coat;-)
    • Sorry, I thought everybody knew. It's like jawtheshark/Corporate Troll.
      • or Em Emalb#3/Em Emalb#7! ;-)
      • Well its now pretty obvious that you don't hide it! ;-) There are still memebers of the "Teh Circle" that I haven't friended and don't keep up with so the dual account thing gets lost on me. I just thought it was cool that I could reconfirm that I made the right decision in listening to what you have to say since I did it twcie;-)
        • Yeah, I didn't know for a long time. And I still haven't quite figured out why some things get posted under this account, and not the SW account.

          Oh! I think I got it.
          No I don't.

          It took her mistakenly posting a journal entry under the other account one day (she deleted it and moved it to this one, with the same title) for me to figure it out, so don't feel too bad.
        • I wonder how many others do that?
  • I worry more about superheroes who wear their underwear outside of their tights!
