The Tome Of Destiny Reconsidered in the Light of Stuff....

As you know, I spent about a week or so speculating on what we might see in what I referred to as 'the Tome Of Destiny' and what Lynn once vaguely referred to as a glimpse into the Pattersons' future; I'd also contrasted that to how things would happen in reality given what we saw in the strip and how people behave outside of Lynn's weird fantasy capsule and come up with a far less positive picture than the one she'd have painted. About a few months ago, I'd sort of realized that it was just another project that Lynn had dropped because it was kind of a lot of work and, well, she'd prefer to rush through things because she hates to have to do basic research. Going over her files, you see, would mean that she'd have to spend more than thirty seconds thinking about what happened and she judges that as being to be too much to ask of her. Recent developments have put a new, even less reassuring idea in my head; given that she recently gave aprilp_katje the lazy, snippy teenager's answer "Stuff happened, 'kay?!!" to the adult question of "Why is Elly just now getting her first year English" (as well as the less strident "Good question; I have no idea" to my inquiry as to what Georgia's original last name is), I finally stopped thinking that she bothered keeping records to ignore in the first place. She'd far rather be captain of HMCS Ineptitude and steer herself right into the Abyss of Failure than limit her creativity by uncool, unfair and boring consistency. What makes it all the more annoying is that her need to not be bothered with continuity only expresses itself when people point out the gaping holes she left in it; when people praise her for the research she's too lazy and flighty to do, she boasts about how great a fan of it she is.
