All has been revealed. Although perhaps not the all that one would like to be revealed.

Also, look, I haz a Mac! *g* *bounce*

Mmm, a mouth-watering icon.

Last night was a dead washout, but I shall have more energy for pretty pictures this weekend. Also, episode recs! Yay!

There's no hurry on either pretty pictures or episode recs, but I will be very happy to have both!

Wow! That is one savoury icon indeed!!

I think it's pretty sweet!

I have a special nostalgic relationship with the base image; or at least my teenage hormones do.

Hair penance. It all makes sense now.


:p

The universe brought doom down upon him indeed.

BTW, I think you missed the Friday LOLMac! And it had a particularly satisfying mouseover.

OMG! Where is my brain?! *jumps in time machine*

I really have no response to the post per se, because I don't think I could improve on the text or mouseover in any way, but it did remind me of this:

When my youngest sister (half-sister, really but I don't think of her that way) was engaged, Middle Daughter, now 16, was 5ish. She was very taken by my sister's fiancé, who showed what Middle Daughter considered to be a flattering interest in her and her concerns. One day Middle Daughter and Fiancé were out at the swings, when Youngest Sister came out to join them. As far as Middle Daughter was concerned, this was an unwelcome development.

"We're talking!" she said, in an attempt to make clear to the interloper that she was not needed.

This didn't work. Time to point out her superior assets. She looked at Youngest Sister, who has the dark almond eyes and glossy dark hair from her Arab heritage.

"I have long, blond, curly hair!" asserted Middle Daughter, rather pointedly.

It didn't work. Fiancé, alas, refused to leave Youngest Sister and rob the cradle.

Probably just as well, since Middle Daughter's hair has darkened with age, and is now a rich brown. She spends much effort trying to straighten it, trying to eradicate those perfect Botticelli curls.

I like Mac's shirt here, and many of the first season outfits are rather nice. Do you suppose he snickered at Magnum in an episode of Magnum P.I. to bring on the Revenge of the Hawaiian Shirt?

Oh, the crossover possibilities . . .

I actually have him acquire a couple of the louder shirts during Phoenix Rising, partly in reaction to getting tired of the contraints of being a spy.

Oooh! Good explanation, and one that makes sense, really.

Still not a really good excuse for wearing a shirt in the first place when he could choose to go without...

Digging for the passages . . .

“Is it my own paranoia, or are you still watching for a tail?”

Mac shrugged. “I drove out to Brookhearst yesterday to scope the place out – a couple of times I wondered if I was being followed, but I couldn’t be sure.”

“It probably was the fashion police this time.”

“I didn’t buy the shirt till afterwards,” Mac declared in an aggrieved tone. “There was a street fair going on in Corte Madera.” He glowered at Jason. “I do not believe I’m getting this from a guy who wears orange and yellow tie-dye.”

“C’mon, Mac. Tie-dye is one thing. But tropical flowers? Pink and purple and orange ones? Just tell me that thing has a volume control on it, or I’ll have the neighbors complaining at night.”

“Tell ‘em to get sunglasses.”

“They’re going to need blindfolds.”

And . . .

* * *

MacGyver pulled off the wrapping expecting the worst, and broke out into a broad grin when he held up the contents: a short-sleeved, open-collared cotton shirt in bright sky blue, a color guaranteed to make any DXS ops coordinator froth at the mouth. It was spattered with red and yellow cartoon figures of rocket ships and explosions, and large white and yellow letters reading “BANG” and “BOOM”. The shirt wasn’t merely ‘conspicuous’ or even ‘attention-grabbing’: it was strident.

Mac loved it on sight.


Segue to . . .

Jason studied Mac thoughtfully. “You know, I had my doubts when Gina brought that shirt home, but it’s okay. But what happened to your hair? It looks lighter than it used to be.”

Mac pulled one of the longer strands around so he could peer at it. “Beats me. You remember when Baba had me use that dye, when she took me to Baranyev’s house that first time? Afterwards, she gave me some other stuff to get rid of the dye, but I swear it made everything way lighter than before.”

Jason shrugged. “Well, you know what they say – if you stay in California long enough, sooner or later you’ll turn into a blond. Now you just need to get a red sports car.”


ETA: And I did have him take his shirt off several times. I also made him get into a hot tub. Wasn't I mean?

You pronounce kind (to us) rather oddly.

I dunno about the red sports car. The Nomad is a lot more attention getting, and goes better with the shirts...

Well, he was very uncomfortable about the hot tub. Poor Mac.

Although he never got the red sportscar (well, not from me anyway), I gave him a nice rare vintage Mustang to drive in the first two chapters of Aftershocks. That was kinder, anyway.
thothmes From: thothmes Date: 23rd November 2011 04:44 (UTC) (Link)
Oh, yes. A vintage Mustang would set him off well.

I'd worry about that remark showing my age if he weren't 8 years older than me...
