Claire says: (5:17:28 PM) Have you been enjoying the East Anglia climate scandal as much as the rest of the family?
Mischa says: (5:17:34 PM) Yes, I have.
Claire says: (5:18:21 PM) Lots of people keep saying, "Of course, we would all look awful if our e-mails were published."
Claire says: (5:18:38 PM) I am kind of the exception to this rule, seeing as my whole career is based on publishing my e-mails.
Mischa says: (5:18:42 PM) I always suspected that this global warming business was a crock, just like the heliotropic theory of the solar system and all the other nonsense our Pop has demasked.
Mischa says: (5:19:05 PM) Your emails reveal the best of you.
Claire says: (5:19:21 PM) I like to think it's my right cross, actually.
Mischa says: (5:19:42 PM) Actually, I'd say your emails are like a peppery jab.
Claire says: (5:20:02 PM) Yes, but my right cross IS a peppery jab.
Claire says: (5:20:10 PM) Or a cross, technically.
Mischa says: (5:20:26 PM) Maybe I misunderstood your metaphor.
Mischa says: (5:20:37 PM) I took you to mean that your emails were your most effective blow.
Claire says: (5:20:44 PM) Because it wasn't a metaphor.
Mischa says: (5:21:01 PM) Oh, I see.
Mischa says: (5:21:07 PM) Your right cross is the best part of you.
Mischa says: (5:21:14 PM) How can your right cross be a jab?
Mischa says: (5:21:22 PM) A jab is a jab.
Mischa says: (5:21:25 PM) A cross is a cross.
Claire says: (5:21:25 PM) You're two steps behind me, mon frère.
Mischa says: (5:21:32 PM) Or one ahead.
Claire says: (5:21:42 PM) Either way, you're not following.
Mischa says: (5:22:04 PM) If we're going around in circles, I could both follow and lead, be ahead and behind.
Claire says: (5:22:04 PM) At least we're not cornered.
Claire says: (5:22:17 PM) That's the idea behind the Octagon.
Mischa says: (5:22:33 PM) Is that the new Chinese military complex?
