A little earlier I was reading Touching the River which is all about electrified art. H.o.p. was drawing elsewhere. Then I was done and reading something else and H.o.p. gets up from the table and starts dancing around telling me about a new character he’s just come up with.
THE ELECTRIC KNIGHT!
He’s all electric. Even his sword is electric.
THE DARK SIDE OF ELECTRICITY.
Yes, that’s the opponent’s name. It’s a bit of a mouthful, but there you go.

Have been having hours long conversations with my brother on what to do about my piecemeal computer, which needs more memory and has one of its fans going. I’m hoping to make this one last a little longer. Trying to figure out how we can upgrade it just enough to do its job without getting too pricey, and then if it is still not up to speed I’ll have to bite the bullet and get a new one but I can pass this one along to H.o.p. in decent working order.
My brother referred to my computer as “a special case”.
I said I knew what that meant.
He said he was trying to be polite.
