Ah, the perfect evening...

Blade Runner on the TV, a wireless high-speed Net connection from the computer in my lap, and Shelly teaching herself crochet on the couch.

Next weekend is zensidhe's Mad Scientist Birthday Party, and Shelly and I have found the perfect gift. Or, at least, the perfect gift that doesn't require batteries, difficult-to-obtain radioactive materials, or inconveniently large quantities of goat's blood...but I digress.

Speaking of Blade Runner, though--when I was a kid in elementary school, they kept telling me that when I grew up, I'd have flying cars. I'm still waiting. Where the hell is my goddamn flying car??!

*grin* As a long-term pedestrian, I wonder that all the damn time!

I'm suddenly reminded of Kevin Smith's short film, The Flying Car.

They have your flying car ready and waiting, but gas prices are too high. Currently, it only gets .00000007 miles to the gallon.

Yanno, if I were going to spend $995,000 on a car, I'd get something like this instead. It doesn't fly in the literal sense, but it certainly does in the figurative sense!
