Hey, you know what's a great way to wake up on the first day of Thanksgiving break? To a beeping, rolling alarm clock playing the local news for your listening pleasure.Gooood morning, Missouri! This is Sam Sorbel with your West Coast weather report. Don't think you'll want to be hitting the beaches today; the ocean's looking mighty snarly out there, and there's a big black cloudbank on the horizon that tells me you surfers might want to stow your boards for at least the rest of the week...
There's nothing quite like being told by Google Maps that the state you grew up in never existed. No, wait, maybe there was: calling your mom in Tennessee, terrified you won't get an answer, only to breathe a sigh of relief at hearing her voice, say "Mom, it's me; something bad's happening. We need to get to Fandom, and you need to come with us," and hear back:Who is this? How did you get this number? I appreciate my fans' support, but calling my home is over the line. ...Now look, I don't know what you're trying to pull, but I've never heard of anybody named Frank Peters, and I certainly didn't have two kids with him! If you want an autographed photo or a pin-up calendar, CALL MY AGENT. If you call here again, I'll press stalking charges. **CLICK**
Yeah, that was a little bit the same. Like having a piano fall on you and having an asteroid fall on you were a little bit the same.
Sorry, other Chewie.
Which is why Francine was now on the dorm phone with Portalocity.
"Hi! Yes, that's right, two for Fandom Island. ASAP. Now
would be good. Whatever, I don't care about stopovers, just get us -- SILENT HILL?
Are you nuts? No, wait, don't put me back on ho----"
Which is why Francine was also
on her cell, texting away like a madwoman. Or someone on hold with Portalocity. Same difference.@f-cupcake:
Half the US is gone. No one remembers. Mom doesn't remember DAD. Or me. #realityfail #warpedbyfandom@f-cupcake:
Trying to get back to Fandom but @portalocity wants to send us to a hell dimension for 3 days! #portalocityfail [OOC: Open for angry portalocity tweeting, and/or sharing of info / check-ins with fellow worried FHers!]
