My car has done more expensive things now. Manifold gaskets. I swear that sounds like some kind of exotic internal organ, except instead of regulating one's bile ducts or marrow pipes or whatever, it just fails and lets the contents of the radiator drain into the crankcase, and the contents of my bank account drain into my mechanic's pocket.

Darn right!

We finally get to see the card ?

Let's hear it for comic temporal physics!
Centcomm 17th Aug 2014, 9:54 PM edit delete reply

I know right?

Into the vipers nest!
Sheela 18th Aug 2014, 4:54 AM edit delete reply

The vipers better get a move on, aint enough room for both a bunch of vipers and a Queen Cobra with an Anaconda at it's side. :D
Stormwind13 18th Aug 2014, 4:46 PM edit delete reply

That doesn't work for me, Sheela. I mean, the Anaconda is the BIGGEST snake in the world and crushes its prey.

I can see Dolly as a SPITTING cobra, but not CeCi as a constrictor. I could see CeCi as a minidrag though. Or possibly Zith.

Neither Dolly or CeCi should be snakes though. Or they will be in trouble. Snakes get sluggish in cold weather... brumating in REALLY cold weather (like a blizzard).

+2 nerd points for Alan Dean Foster and David Eddings references!
Stormwind13 19th Aug 2014, 6:57 PM edit delete reply

:-D Rose.
Centcomm 18th Aug 2014, 10:23 AM edit delete reply

Oh yes - into the Breech we go!
Sheela 19th Aug 2014, 4:40 AM edit delete reply

CeCi is definately a constrictor, SHE WILL CRUSH YOU WITH HUGS !!!
Stormwind13 19th Aug 2014, 7:09 PM edit delete reply

What a way to go, Sheela. :-D
highlander55 19th Aug 2014, 4:57 PM edit delete reply

Now if only they could have taken the Cenotaph Road it would have been easier. And a hell of a lot faster.
Centcomm 19th Aug 2014, 5:17 PM edit delete reply

more than likely :D
plymayer 17th Aug 2014, 10:49 PM edit delete reply

Let's pay in new yen.
Centcomm 18th Aug 2014, 10:23 AM edit delete reply

HEHE - HEY It could happen..
plymayer 18th Aug 2014, 11:19 PM edit delete reply

It's just that I've got all that new yen laying around and you can't get anyone to convert it without being seriously ripped off....
Rashala 17th Aug 2014, 11:22 PM edit delete reply

And Political Paranoia...Never try to sneak into Nova Roma without it
Centcomm 18th Aug 2014, 10:23 AM edit delete reply

LOL too true :D
bilateralcomics 17th Aug 2014, 11:35 PM edit delete reply

No matter what, everyone pays in some way!
Centcomm 18th Aug 2014, 10:24 AM edit delete reply

Yup .. that they do :D
Stormwind13 18th Aug 2014, 2:44 PM edit delete reply

TANSTAAFL, bilateral.
bilateralcomics 18th Aug 2014, 10:29 PM edit delete reply

Mmm...what does that mean?! :D
Stormwind13 19th Aug 2014, 2:42 AM edit delete reply

There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch, bilateral.
bilateralcomics 19th Aug 2014, 3:00 AM edit delete reply

Ha, got it.
mjkj 18th Aug 2014, 12:22 AM edit delete reply

Fast thinking there.

It seems that Dolly does not trust CeCi completely yet...
Centcomm 18th Aug 2014, 10:24 AM edit delete reply

well - she does to a large degree now . but she knows she has to be careful :D
Stormwind13 18th Aug 2014, 4:23 PM edit delete reply

Why do you think that Dolly doesn't trust CeCi, mjkj?

I wasn't getting that here as Dolly was talking with the agent and just continued on. Handing the agent off to CeCi might have made Dolly appear unprepared or weak. Which I'm not sure would be good in a place like Nova Roma.
DizzasterJuice 18th Aug 2014, 4:23 AM edit delete reply

That's some fast thinking there Dolly. I would've told Ceci to offer them one of her "special techniques"... not that I would expect that to work, I was just in the mood to see the Double-Kangaroo Scissor Jump... boobies! :P
Centcomm 18th Aug 2014, 10:24 AM edit delete reply

LOL Hmm maybe a incentive piece?
jas 18th Aug 2014, 5:41 AM edit delete reply

That was close! Nice improvisin', Dolly. XD
Centcomm 18th Aug 2014, 10:25 AM edit delete reply

Yep shes a ace at thinking on her feet :D
highlander55 18th Aug 2014, 4:02 PM edit delete reply

Ummm! Cent- she is sitting down not standing on her feet.. Just say-in. (LMAO)
Centcomm 18th Aug 2014, 9:29 PM edit delete reply

LOL point taken :D
KarToon12 18th Aug 2014, 5:45 AM edit delete reply

I'm sure the only money they won't accept is the Bat-Credit Card. XD
Centcomm 18th Aug 2014, 10:25 AM edit delete reply

Oh my god. I remember that !!! KUDOS for reminding me about that.
Draginbeard 18th Aug 2014, 6:45 AM edit delete reply

I kind of got a flashback from Star Wars, only the Millennium Falcon was docking on friendly terms in the Death Star this time.
Centcomm 18th Aug 2014, 10:26 AM edit delete reply

heheh - yeah it does have that vibe huh? I liked that scene a lot :D
Stormwind13 18th Aug 2014, 4:16 PM edit delete reply

Didn't think about it, Dragin but I think you are right.
Stormwind13 18th Aug 2014, 4:50 PM edit delete reply

Sorry to hear you are having problems, Rose. Hope the car gets straightened out soon, with minimal expense.
Sheela 19th Aug 2014, 4:13 AM edit delete reply

To be fair to the machanic, the gaskets really are at the very guts of the engine.
highlander55 19th Aug 2014, 5:01 PM edit delete reply

Anti-freeze in crank case. Bearings could burn up unless stripped and new bearings and rebuild. Or swap an engine.
XMinusOne 18th Aug 2014, 6:18 PM edit delete reply
Hah! Cops and guards are all the same. Money talks, bullshit walks. A good cop is one that stays bought. Welcome to Nova Roma folks.
Centcomm 18th Aug 2014, 9:30 PM edit delete reply

yes they are.. not ALL cops thank god but its better than Dolly meets the corrupt ones ..
mjkj 19th Aug 2014, 3:42 AM edit delete reply

Awww, poor Rose *hands over a Mira*

I hope there is nothing else wrong...
Rashala 19th Aug 2014, 1:20 PM edit delete reply

I thought Rose Stole My CyberSmaug I made for tedee why she need a mira?
Stormwind13 19th Aug 2014, 6:56 PM edit delete reply

To upgrade and personalize it, Rash.
HiFranc 12th Apr 2015, 10:10 AM edit delete reply

So I take it that Dolly's learnt the language now?
Centcomm 13th Apr 2015, 3:49 AM edit delete reply

Yes - fast language is one of the Many perks of her new body :D
