There's a Disturbance in the Continuum


Little Red's Posse, originally uploaded by geekgirlunveiled.

Little Red Ella and her Posse have just been informed that Others will be arriving soon from the Poppet Planet. There was some instinctive grouping into defense formations, but now that they know that "Others" doesn't mean "robots" this time, they've relaxed.

"Are you SURE it's not a bunch of new robots?"
         "Yes, they are soooo hard to train, what with the laser beams and disrupter rayballs."
"Rayballs? that's not a word."
         "IS SO, mini-Dal has a rayball."
"You just made that up."
         "Did not."

The caretaker of this particular Poppet Satellite just got the invoice and bill of lading from Poppet Planet, and is feeling slightly 'hungover' from the effort of arranging the expedition.

The caretaker would also like to apologize to readers whom she should have informed of the emigration efforts that were underway, but she's pretty sure all the readers saw the announcement over at Poppetropolis.

Little Red Ella's Posse is currently concerned that there is unfinished business with mini-Dal and the injured bird. They plan to wrap that business up before the new residents arrive. Little Red Ella is also looking at a possible re-org, with a small contingency of her crew taking up residency at the business operations office of the caretaker. Just to keep an eye on her, you know. Ella suspects that's how the robots are getting in.

I really like this picture. I can also totally relate to the oh-so familiar 'poppet hangover'.

Haha! Uh-oh, Kelly did you indulge?

Janet: More. That's why they call it Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
