Heh, heh, it's two o clock in the morning, I have to wake up early, got a crushing headache, have definitely drank a bit more than my share, but here I am laughing...

(god people?) Brilliant!

Gamer C. said...

*Gives Gnome some hot coffe* That shouls wake you up comrade. Either that or some sweet Yoko Matsugane.

About the game, I'm kinda interested in this game, mainly because I liked the movie Dawn of the Dead.

gnome said...

Then, ignore the games, forget the shite version of Dawn of the Dead you saw (assuming it's the "remake") and go watch Romero's original films! they are indeed brilliant!

Thanks for the coffee gamer C. Much needed and appreciated.

The Elderly said...

typical you go on a drinking spree and i'm fast asleep....

(pops some aspirin in Gnomes coffee)
probably too late to make any difference but hey and hangover in the middle of summer is really a hangover.

Gamer C, Yoko indeed concentrates the mind somewhat...... multitasking is quite difficult

(puts on a fresh pot of coffee, picks up the empty tequila bottle)

s'okay i'll fill it again......

gnome said...

Aspirin does nothing..really... Only an Aspirin ,Panadol, POnstan super combo can stop a gnome's headache...

Fill again, please.

Thank you...

(Wait a sec, who's filling and with waht? I want the alcohol, mind you)

The Elderly said...

GamerC poured i just held the cup, looks okay, should be better now i've added the morphine....

gnome said...

Morphine?

I don't want ot end up like Bella Lugosi...

Then again, I would like a bit of post-death fame, and some nice blockbusting horror movies in my CV.

Bring it on I say...

The Elderly said...

okay then i've got belladonna, nightshade, arsenic, tse tse fly dung, digitalis and foxglove. Just what type of painkiller do gnomes take....

I wouldn't mind be remembered for a love scene with angelina jolie though, the film genre wouldn't be important.

gnome said...

Well, not much choice in genres then... Unless you try something post-meta-genre. It 'll be fine I guess, as long of course as it features Ms. Jollie too.

Belladonna sounds nice. Remminds me of Tim Burton's masterpiece...

The Elderly said...

yep give me quirky and eccentric any day. Belladonna it is.........

(stirs two drops into gnomes heavily medicated drink..)

now tell me if you experience heart palpitations, eye bulging, dizziness, swollen throat or visions of pygmy elephants.....

gnome said...

Every feels fine!

Gimme another.

The Elderly said...

elderly adds two more drops of belladonna...... it may take a little while to kick in...

gnome said...

Gnomes have an average CON (as in constitution) score of 18...

Thought I'd let you know...

The Elderly said...

sturdy little creatures are ye...

(pours rest of belladonna litre bottle into gnomes tankard)

try that!

It was necessary, wasn;t it? Thanks for being a pal and saving me elderly. Now, if could only skip the Belladonna next time, all would be just fine...
