So I have an amusing anecdote that goes with my last macro post. That first set was originally intended to be just a gift for a friend. He's getting me into Who, and I'm getting him into U2. (Can you imagine anything more romantic?) After he reacted favorably to them, to put it mildly, I decided to post them here.
The thing is, I like this friend, I mean LIKE him, and he likes me, but he's got a girlfriend right now, so....yeah.
But not too long after I posted the first batch here, my friend got an IM from one of his friends. (His friend might be reading this right now. Y HALO THAR. Holla if ya hear me.) The following "wow, it's a small world" exchange took place:
HIS FRIEND: Check out these macros! It's U2 and Doctor Who! [provides link]
MY FRIEND: Yeah, I actually saw these before they were posted on the web.
HIS FRIEND: You mean...YOU made these?
MY FRIEND: Nope. But I know the girl who did make them.
HIS FRIEND: Really? So...is she super hot?
MY FRIEND: Why?
HIS FRIEND: 'Cause she's obviously an incredibly cool person, so if she were hot, that would just be like, the icing on the cake.
MY FRIEND: Let me put it this way: If you went out with her, and I suddenly became single, I would have to kill you.
HIS FRIEND: Oh.
MY FRIEND: And the thing is, she would probably HELP me kill you.
And now, the bonus "Hitchhiker's" macros!
