GT: it's a castle!!! AG: No shit! AG: It is 8ig and fore8oding and ostent8ious, just the way I wanted it. AG: As a 8lue8lood, I was entitled to 8uild such a home. Something to set me far apart from the commoners. GT: you built it? AG: Of course not. Ro8ots 8uilt it for me when I was very young. AG: 8ut I was allowed to dict8 instructions. Expected to, in fact. GT: oh gosh. GT: so rad. AG: Really? AG: I still find it interesting what sort of mundane facts humans tend to 8e impressed 8y. AG: Anyway, my design kind of got 8oring as I got older. A huge castle hive sounds great, 8ut it starts feeling pretty cavernous and lonely after a while. There were so many 8locks I never even used! AG: Your tastes change, 8ut you get stuck with growing up in a place suited to your earliest, most juvenile inclin8ions. AG: No8ody tells you that when you're a kid though. GT: i think i know what you mean. GT: i feel like a long time ago, i might have given my dad the impression i really liked clowns? GT: and now there are clowns everywhere, his stupid collection just keeps growing and growing, and it drives me CRAZY. AG: John........ AG: That 8arely compara8le example is so cute, I don't even know what to say. GT: heheh.
