Some of you have asked what Crow’s been doing while Tom Servo has been gallivanting around town. Rest assured, he’s been plenty busy (although not cleaning, like I’d hoped he would). Here’s what he’s been up to:
While Tom was trying on my heels, Crow put on my scarf and some jewelry and started calling himself Madame Crowena.
He says he can see the future; I told him he needed to stop using Tom’s head as a crystal ball and he claimed he had no idea what I was talking about.
Well, it’s the Monday before Thanksgiving, and I told the robots that they were welcome to spend the holiday weekend with my family. Tom Servo jumped up and down and clapped his hands (okay, he didn’t really do that, but he said he’d love to come), but Crow said he’d have to pass. He felt like that would be too many people and he didn’t want to intrude. Really, I think it’s that the football lineup on Thursday features some exciting match-ups and he didn’t want to share the TV or be social. Also, as the namesake of a bird, he told me he finds the holiday a little disturbing. I told him to keep an eye on the apartment and help himself to anything in the fridge.
For those of you looking for something to watch besides football and the Macy’s parade, there’s going to be a MST3K Turkey Day Marathon* – they will be live-streaming classic episodes of MST3K throughout the day – so you should check it out. You can watch it live by clicking this link.
Check in tomorrow to find out what Crow’s been up to this month. And one last plea to stay home on Thanksgiving. If you do, I’ll be ever so thankful! – Sarah
*Tom heard “Marathon” and got really panicky; I had to explain that it isn’t a race, just back-to-back episodes of the show, and he asked why that’s called a marathon and not a relay race, which he felt made more sense. I didn’t have a good answer, but I have to agree. Thoughts?
I told Tom Servo he could watch Netflix as a reward for (finally) helping out with the dishes and some other chores. He told me after he explored his feminine side, he felt the need to examine his masculinity, and he’d heard there was a show called Magnum, P.I. that might help him get in touch with his testosterone.* So we sat down and watched a couple of episodes.
Tom Servo likes that the lead actor is another Tom S. He tried to copy the mustache; I didn’t have the heart to tell him it’s not a good look for him. But I did tell him a funny story about a mustache that looked kind of like his.
Last night my friend Mary came over to watch When Harry Met Sally. It’s our yearly holiday tradition (well, this was the second annual, but I think we need to make it a permanent ritual), and it goes like this: we send WHMS quotes to each other leading up to the day of our get-together; then, after work, we settle in for the movie with food, wine or beer, and an egg timer.
Tom was starting to get a little ripe, so I suggested he take a bath. At first he wasn’t happy about it, but then he started to enjoy the experience. He was especially tickled when I told him he could use my shower cap and rubber ducky.
I told him he’d better be using that brush for his teeth; It’s not a back scrubber. Also, since he ate an Oreo on Saturday, his teeth are in need of some attention.
Did you know Tom Servo is a huge Badger fan? You probably did because he’s always wearing red and white and you’re super smart. Yesterday he hung out with Bucky and watched the game.
That second photo was taken very early in the game. I can’t show you how things looked later, but let’s just say: Bucky did a lot of push-ups. Which is good, because apparently Tom Servo doesn’t take losing well. Go Badgers!
