There's a small gnome following me. Considering the things that happen in this City, something like this usually wouldn't bother me, yet everywhere I turn it's there. I'm beginning to lose patience with it.

[Camera turns to view a harmless looking lawn gnome next to a bar stool not far from Eric.]

...It follows you? Do you see it move?

[In other words, is it actually alive?]
Date/Time: 2010-07-31 07:51 (UTC)Posted by: [identity profile] vikingvampire.livejournal.com
No. It just appears close to me when I turn a corner or walk away from it.

Have you tried running as quickly as you can?
Date/Time: 2010-07-31 07:58 (UTC)Posted by: [identity profile] vikingvampire.livejournal.com
I've tried running, flying..it always appears no matter how much distance I put between myself and it. Whatever this is, it's extremely irritating.

faderbroderson: (is there something on my back?)
Yet it's only followed you, and made no other moves? Perhaps we can capture it.

If it frees me from being stalked by this thing.

[Eric kicks it and it immediately pops up next him when he turns away. Eric growls at it.]

It's driving me insane.

Can't you destroy it? A bullet would fix it.
Date/Time: 2010-07-31 07:59 (UTC)Posted by: [identity profile] vikingvampire.livejournal.com
If it were alive I would gladly have ripped it's throat out by now.

Awesome.

Smashing it into little pieces is still an option.
Date/Time: 2010-07-31 08:08 (UTC)Posted by: [identity profile] vikingvampire.livejournal.com
Assuming it won't show up completely whole once I turn away from the pieces.

[ while not full on laughter, this is the sound of amusement at your misfortune, eric. ]

Is there something you wish to say to me. [He hears that Angel and he's none too pleased.]
Date/Time: 2010-07-31 20:19 (UTC)Posted by: [identity profile] undoing.livejournal.com
No, but I think that garden decoration might.

At least it's quirky.
Date/Time: 2010-07-31 17:26 (UTC)Posted by: [identity profile] vikingvampire.livejournal.com
It's annoying.

It's a gnome. Unless it has teeth, I doubt it'll do more than follow you.

Be careful, I see an ambulatory stake.
Date/Time: 2010-07-31 17:25 (UTC)Posted by: [identity profile] vikingvampire.livejournal.com
I don't think it's made of wood.
Date/Time: 2010-07-31 17:47 (UTC)Posted by: [identity profile] valentineluke.livejournal.com
Best not put it to the test.

You must look suspiciously like a lawn.
Date/Time: 2010-07-31 17:32 (UTC)Posted by: [identity profile] vikingvampire.livejournal.com
Whatever the reason, I will destroy it.
Date/Time: 2010-08-02 01:42 (UTC)Posted by: [identity profile] vicodincrutch.livejournal.com
A mower operated by an underpaid landscaper would do it.

I won't be redundant and say, 'break it,' but that was my original message...ah, well, I suppose I already did.

...Wow, that's actually kind of creepy. Sucks to be you.

Thank you, Dawn. That's very helpful.

I live to serve. So, random gnome curse?
Date/Time: 2010-08-02 16:26 (UTC)Posted by: [identity profile] vikingvampire.livejournal.com
Apparently so.

It could be worse. It could be the Verizon guy.

[ this first part is muttered. but it's also loud enough sookie knows eric will catch it. ]

Serves you right.

[ and now louder, what bitchy muttered aside? ]

You can try ignorin' it.

[He's just gonna ignore that first comment, thank you very much.]

You try ignoring something that pops up everywhere you go.
