Quick aside: Jack the cat came out of hiding after about twelve hours. He's been following me all around the house since then. I never did figure out where he was while I couldn't find him, though. Also, I can't yet share cat pictures because I misplaced my camera, darn it.

The embarrassing Doctor Who moment is:
At ChicagoTARDIS, I bought a keychain that "speaks" six DW-related phrases when you push whichever button. Well, I was standing in line in a department store the other day, and I reached in my pocket for some money. While doing so, I accidentally bumped one of the buttons on the keychain. Out boomed a Cyberman voice: You will be deleted. Delete! Delete! Delete!

You should have seen the expression on the face of the woman standing in front of me. It kind of made the whole thing feel worthwhile.

And at least I didn't push the button that triggers this Dalek voice: You are an enemy of the Daleks! You must be destroyed!

We sell them at the bookstore, and sometimes I'll be walking past just as a customer triggers it. And then I have to go hide behind the sofas until the danger has passed. It's terribly distressing.

Hearing a Dalek voice would creep me out more than hearing a Cyberman would. I have this thing about the Daleks.

Oh I don't know, it could've been funny just to get her reaction! :D

Glad Jack finally came back out of hiding...

She kind of jumped, whipped her head around, stared at me (I was wearing a very innocent expression), and took a couple of steps away. So yes, it was funny. ;)

Oh, dear, that amde me laugh more than anything else today. I'm glad Jack reappeared, though. :-)

I laughed after I got out of the store. I'm still carrying that keychain, too.

Ha, brilliant!

One of my least hateful jobs was in a bookshop where they had a life size replica of a Dalek, and whenever a customer walked past engrossed in, I don't know, A Brief History of Time, I could press a button that would make it screech "Exterminate! Exterminate!" loud enough to be heard halfway down the street.

And I wonder why that job didn't stick.

They should have kept you at that job just to enliven the place!

LOL. *g*

Also, glad to hear Jack came out of hiding.

It was both embarrassing and funny at the time it happened. I'm glad it did happen, though. It made my day more interesting.

I'd love to know where Jack was hiding. I scoured the house looking for him, to no success, and then later on he came strolling out from wherever as if nothing had happened.

Yay for Jack the cat! :D

Hahaha, poor woman! I'd love to scare people with that keychain, to be honest. ;)

Now that I know how much fun it is, I probably will use the keychain again. I just have to pick my moments. ;)

I have one of these! I have it hanging in my car. If somebody ticks me off, I hit the Exterminate! Exterminate! button. I've eliminated many a tailgater that way! :D

I cam this close to getting one of those at Gally. But I had already spent much money on tiny plastic Doctors.

I saw so many things I wanted to buy in Chicago. It's tough to choose, isn't it?

I have that keychain too! I used to always hit it at work, because I kept my keys in my front pocket, then I'd lean over the counter to ring people up. I always was hitting the Dalek one and the TARDIS sounds. *awkward*

With the TARDIS sounds, I would just ignore it and try to make the people think they were going crazy hearing weird sounds. Sometimes it worked.

LOL, at least it must have made your days more interesting. I can imagine the customers walking away wondering what they had just heard. Or thought they heard.

This is humorous, it's similiar to having two sons who are ADHD yelling something like:

"I'm a Death Knight with ADHD!" (War of Warcraft) and then having the other one yell:

"Die Death Knight with ADHD!" All while waiting in line at WalMart.

No one ever told me about this part about being a parent! *Headdesk* I'm just glad that they have stop quoting Gary the Cylon! (on youtube if your interested) I can't look at any funny videos without those two parrots mimicking it with all the energy and vigor that is ADHD without meds (which only happens on the weekend).

I'd gladly trade you for a day!

She had a "What the hell was that!" expression that still makes me want to laugh. :D
