God, I love my sister.

This Thanksgiving, I hung out with my sister Maya leadsynth for the first time since last Thanksgiving. When I do dumb things like go for a whole year without hanging out with Maya in person, I tend to forget what a devastatingly quick wit she has.1

Alex: *hands a mostly-eaten apple to Lindsey*
Lindsey: *drops it on the floor*
A nanosecond: *goes by*
Maya: Core dump.

Lindsey: *whines about how Rob posted a video of himself, Alex, and her playing music on YouTube, but misspelled her name in the metadata, so now she'll never be famous, as would surely have happened otherwise*2
A nanosecond: *goes by*
Maya: You got Robbed.

Okay, so those two were amusing, but this made me have to stop playing Rock Band and just stumble around the room laughing for a couple of minutes:

Maya: I was trying to think of a female-anatomy equivalent to the saying "When in doubt, whip it out." The best I've come up so far is "When you're nervous, show your cervix."

God, I love her.

  1. And actually, both of these remind me of the time right around last Thanksgiving when Jesse jes5199 and I were comparing the quality, in megapixels, of photos that our phones could take, and of course, mine was awful and Jes's was excellent, and Maya was like "Phoned." to me, and Jesse actually ran to his computer to find out if she was the first person to have thought of that. (She probably wasn't.)
  2. Actually, Rob fixed the misspelling shortly afterward -- you'll note I'm still not famous -- and the video is here! It's from a while ago.
