Aurora Lights

Tita and Vidcund were hot tubbing - and someone stole their clothes. They had to WALK home in the snow.

"I can't feel my toes."

"That's good, isn't it?"

"I don't think so."

"Can I have some toast?"

"We need to thaw out first, son."

At the weekend, T'Resa came over and she and Sanjib made a snowman. "It's not very tall, is it?"

Sanjib couldn't see the problem.

T'resa's official reason for coming was to ask for Tita's assistance with her Science Homework.

Vidcund set up his workbench on the balcony, and when it snowed he said he was getting "acclimated".

"Are your toes numb yet?"

"I don't know, I can't feel them."

And after much hard work, Tita finally got her Science Skill all the way up and achieved her lifelong desire, to not only be a Mad Scientist but also have the top Science skill, the adults set off for China.

[No pics because Tita is convinced that taking photographs on holiday was the cause of her first clone TitaI, so she's banned cameras from holidays.]

Tita had no words for this bartender.

Vidcund chain-coffees.

And the next week, Tita and Vidcund threw a party. Just because.

Don't you read at parties? They always have more interesting books than at home. Well, if it's Tita and Vidcund they do.

Tita explaining to Ahmediaz her Theory of EruthroKinesis, also known as the Lights Red Shift Theory, which is about the effects of the colour red on the velocity of vehicles painted in that colour.

Lakshmi is now officially a teen, and she and T'Resa were plotting to hide something in Tita's spare-bedroom wardrobe.

"No, I DON'T know how this happened. I'm a Mad Scientist, not a frammin' biologist."
