Hello, Kingdomers….uhhh… Kingdomites…. or whatever the followers of this here blog call themselves. For those of you who don’t know me, I am Revis Edgewater; First Knight of the Matticus Kingdom and co-author of the Jester’s book, The Erratic Sun. If you don’t already have it, I’ll wait patiently while you either go here for the paperback version or here for the Kindle version. Now that I’ve gotten that shameless plug out of the way, let me get on with telling you why I’m here.
Normally, I play on my own blog, but since both Matticus and I contributed to what you’re about to read next, I figured I’d stop on by the Kingdom. It’s been a while since I’ve made my presence felt here anyway.
Below is an exchange that took place between Matticus and I earlier today. This is what happens when we have enough time to email each other while we’re at work:
Revis: To err is human. Wait…. you’re human, right? Or are you some cybernetic jester from the future who also happens to write????
Matticus: I’m not a robot. Definitely not. Trust me. *creepy grin*
R: Damn, I was hoping for a robot friend. If Fry gets Bender, how come I can’t get one?
M: You make a valid argument about the Fry/Bender situation. Though, they both also have a Cyclops for a friend… so… even if I was a robot, which I’m most definitely not, we are both still getting gipped in the friendship department.
Also, we need a space ship.
R: Well, we don’t have a cyclops friend, but we do have a dinosaur friend. Does that count? We also have a ship. It’s called the Erratic Sun, remember? We just can’t fly it….
M: We do have a dinosaur friend, that’s very true. And I have a ninja-knight, a knightly ninja, as a friend. Can’t get much cooler than that. And, yes, we do have a spaceship. A very nice one. I’m not sure why you can’t fly it? I’ve taken it for a couple spins around the galaxy…
R: Wait, Terry lets you fly it??? He never lets me!
M: Hmm… That’s weird. I’ll have a word with him next time I see him.
R: Yeah, whenever I ask to fly it, he mumbles something about not wanting to die…
M: Have you given him a reason for doubting your ability to pilot the thing?
R: There was that one time I crashed that hovercar because I saw a squirrel, but that wouldn’t happen in the Sun. There aren’t any squirrels in space.
M: Squirrels in Space, the movie.
R: Oh, sure. Take Terry’s side. I see how you are.
M: That’s not what I was doing!! I was changing the subject…. 😛
R: Yeah, right. I bet you two go out on weekends and party without me…
M: Only once or twice.
R: I knew it! I’m the third wheel!
M: No!!! … you actually have to be around to be considered the third wheel, right? 😛
R: Do you think Al Gore would’ve still invented the Internet if he knew that this was the kind of stuff we’d do with it?
M: Yes! He’s the biggest prankster of all!

Hey!! I said funny stuff later on in the conversation!!!
The rest of the conversation was me saying we should make the conversation into a blog post…
Sort of… yeah, but the cut and paste line was pure gold!
I want a Bender myself! Drinking buddy, part-time thief, handy in most situations really.
Seriously! Who do we know that’s a genius and can make us all Benders?!?
Elon Musk. Get on it, man!
Shoot. I seem to have lost my contact card for him…. can you send it over?
Yeah I wish…
And you wake up with a kidney missing only some of the time!
Do robots dream of electric beer? Because I sure do.
Do I preach to you when you’re lying stoned in the gutter? Nooooooo…
Ha ha, I love the banter! The Erratic Sun was a GREAT book, by the way, so nice to meet you co-author! xo
So glad you liked the book!!
Nice to meet you too! I’m really glad you liked the book!
Youse are fun. No wonder you wrote such a great story together. NO GOING OUT THOUGH! Not til the sequel’s done. People are a-clamourin’…
We’re working on it. Don’t know exactly when we’ll be done with it, but we are working on it.
If you’re in the market for a non-robot but possibly creepy character for the next adventure, don’t hesitate to knock on the rock outside the Cave. D
That sounds like it would hurt my hand. I suggest having a bell put in.
Podcast! So I can listen to you on my way to work. 😀
Also, I love you guys.
… I don’t know why it was so hard to reply to this. Now that I’m doing it, it seems super easy. Cuz I love love love y’all!
We love you too, Ra. And you never need to be unsure of what to say to me. You can say anything and you will still be my dinosaur friend. Now, let’s hop on the spaceship and fly off into space!
