Don't worry...Mike (don't call him Michael!  Remember that encourages him!) is just angry because I rigged up a videocamera to freeze one of his friends in the washroom, because I noticed we didn't have a hat/coat rack in there...just don't cover that particular rack up with coats, or it could be a problem. 

(In short he's not after your wings, if that's what you're concerned about.  He has a fine pair of his own.)  ...Mike, how often do I have to point out that preening in public is considered rude?  Next time I won't wear the goggles and you'll freeze that way!  I swear!  What...

I wish I could throw a sheet over Mike for you, but this is only a hologram.

Quick! Everyone look at Mike! Uhm, and someone stand between him and Nik, or something.

Look at what's been following me... *sneaks another look at Mike, who freezes into view, thankfully looking another direction* ...do you really want to try it?

Dangnabbit, I've been trying to get Mike's special goggles back on him when we're both in that funny space-time, but I can't get the drop on him, and when he's frozen they're stone and stuck to the top of his head.  Someone convince him they look better over his eyes?  Tell him they're sexier that way or something?  Does that concept even apply here?... I can't say I even remotely understand it myself...  Wink

Left or right takes you into new dimensions/planes/parallel universes/alternate spacetimes/whatever term you like to use. In our origin-spacetime, we have three dimensions of space and only one of time. Just as you're restricted to back and forth, side to side, and up and down in spatial movements if you want to stay within this spacetime, similarly you can only move back and forward in time.

Slipping between spacetimes is not really advised. You never know what will hitch a ride back. There were those stompy robot men that time, which was a pest, but they got sorted. And I'm starting to think we might have Nik to blame for this stone angel infestation with which I have been having so many problems....

Blame?  Blame? But their demands are so reasonable!  ...Ok, the interspecies dating service was a bit much, but Mike settled for not setting that up if I married his sister...promised to introduce him to some of the local ladies...started a more general publication.  Incidentally, here's a copy of the first issue.  For the love of God don't call any of those numbers!  And don't look at any of the pictures! ...Oh, hello, Mike.  How was your nap?...No, I haven't seen her.  I think she may be in the washroom.  What do you mean, she doesn't have to wash or...no, then I don't know what she would be doing in there.  Maybe she's at the ladies' club...No!  You heard wrong!  There isn't a ladies' club!  ....*sigh*....

Oh, I know the angels very well. We're enemies from way back. That's why I'm broadcasting a hologram here, rather than being present in person. If Nik's friend "Mike" and I were actually in the same room, it might get messy.

Would soneone please keep an eye on Mike and get between him and Nik for a moment. And try not to look directly at Nik. And definitely don't look in Mike's eyes. Trust me, it's a bad idea.

Oh, dear. A publication? Bugger. And I'll bet they are especially eye-catching, too.

No point showing them to me, I'm filtering out all angel-like images. As far as I am concerned Mike is a black box. Unfortunately, you and M. Bailey are very indistinct, as a byproduct of this.

I gave him the special goggles, but he won't wear them!  Why?  When someone gives you a gift...

How did you know?  They're gorgeous; the female-seeming ones are especially beautiful.  Mike has been leaning on me to post them over at the Gentlemen's Club, these ladies are apparently especially hungry lonely hearts.  (Funny, I could be sure he said "hungry"...)

I understand, MW, I used to be in denial too.  I thought being an angel meant all this about service and goodness and perfection...not many mad scientist angels in that scheme of things, though, eh?  Mike gave me my wings for very little effort...I think in return for those goggles he never wears...though he's fond of the protective suit disguised as a choir robe...says such things are "not traditional" or some excuse like that.  Only problem is, I still have to hide all those rocket launchers and things special angelic powers under my robe...it gets awkward...argh, tradition!

In any event, you should really come to our party, lots of nice single angels of both apparent "sexes" are going to be there.  You should come too, Flynn, it'd be a good test of that filter of yours...Mike has been asking to meet you in person. Wink  If you like, he'll send you a hologram also...sheesh, dating in this new Internet age...

I know, but the filter sees humanoid with wings, though, and isn't sure what to do... so it cuts it anyway. I really don't get on with the stone angels.

Well...Mike tells me I have to put up with freezing now and then, for a while, because it's "traditional"...not sure what that word means in this context other than that he won't discuss it because I'm not sure yet about understanding these angels.  But after a while I suppose I'll be allowed to resist the process through technology too.  At least so far I've gotten out of marrying his sister  don't let him hear that I said that, she is a gorgeous woman, and they do need some sort of diplomatic foothold among the "normal-times" or so I hear.  I suppose that's what that little dating rag is all about.

I have to keep these discussions to short bits while Mike is out hunting, and sheesh it is amazing how fast he accomplishes this...if I am not careful he may start making me go along on these trips.  Come to think of it, I'm famished, and no, angel-food cake is not very nourishing.

Uh-oh, did you hear that?  I'm getting awfully good at hearing him coming...whoops  *freezes*
