OOM: July 2012: Univille, South Dakota/ New York, New York

It's been a rather boring week, if it comes down to it. Well, until this morning. He was awoken by Artie yelling up the stairs at Pete, followed by the requisite grumbling, stomping, and showering before they both left for parts unknown. Helena wandered off to do some inventory, and he went to his lab.

He'd tried to work on his latest Artifact lead, but all he got was a not exactly comforting hallucination of Napoleon and the battle of Waterloo in his lab. One goo bath and an actual shower later, he decided to go hang out in the office with Claudia.

Pulling up his latest internet obession: Who Wants to be a Cooking Star?, he curled up in a chair and lost himself in the absurdity of it all, until something that had been bothering him for a while finally sunk in.

"Hey, Claudia? Can you come look at this for a moment? I think I might've found an Artifact."
claudiometer: looking up from a case file (o rly?)

"What makes you say that, brother dear?"
But she comes to watch over his shoulder anyway. "What am I looking at?"
claudiometer: holding jars of stuff (weighing options)

"I'll take your word for it ingredients-wise, but that definitely sounds fishy. So to speak." Who knows, maybe he's done a fish dish.
"How long's this been bugging you? We haven't had any cooking pings, Pete would've tried to jump on 'em."
claudiometer: onna laptop (research-fu: new school)

"Hang on, lemme pull up the other ones."
It's not that she doesn't trust Joshua, it's just that she thinks it's worth double-checking.
claudiometer: dubious face (:/)

[personal profile] claudiometer 2013-07-24 11:48 pm (UTC)(link)
As she watches, Claudia frowns more and more.
"Okay, stop me if I'm wrong, but if you're looking to be a famous chef, shouldn't you have... I dunno, more than one pot to your name? And not make beef in the same one as your soup?"
claudiometer: grinning, text: annoying Gentile (annoying Gentile)

[personal profile] claudiometer 2013-07-24 11:56 pm (UTC)(link)
"And you would know, wouldn't you?" She kids, she kids; he's actually pretty damn good. He'd have to be, or Leena wouldn't let him cook half as often as she does.
"Guess we're going to New York, then."
claudiometer: current!Claud with Joshua (modern family)

[personal profile] claudiometer 2013-07-25 12:01 am (UTC)(link)
"Hey, I didn't decide to burn anything. I decided to surprise you for your birthday." And she did! Just... nnnnot how she wanted to. Oops.
Claudia shrugs. "You spotted it, you know more about cooking than either of us, and you gotta do your first ping sometime. We can fake it till we make it, right?"
claudiometer: looking up (iiinteresting)

[personal profile] claudiometer 2013-07-25 12:17 am (UTC)(link)
Claudia frowns a bit, thinking it over. "Hmm. This'll probably be at least an overnight. And I'm not going anywhere without my Tesla - do you think you can pretend to aim well enough to bring one?"
claudiometer: with Pete and Artie (we got a ping!)

[personal profile] claudiometer 2013-07-25 12:23 am (UTC)(link)
Awwww, he's gonna let her drive Figgy! So she won't push her luck and bust out the nickname. Yet.
"Man with a plan. Let me go find... something we can haul a cooking pot home in."
At least they know the size of the thing they're going after, for once.
claudiometer: holding phone and lookin' dubious (fun with technology)

[personal profile] claudiometer 2013-07-25 12:28 am (UTC)(link)
"...Well, if you're trusting me with your car, I guess I can return the favor."
claudiometer: looking at a list (on my to-do list)

[personal profile] claudiometer 2013-07-25 12:30 am (UTC)(link)
"'k, BRB."
And with that, she disappears onto the Warehouse floor, in search of a neutralizing-supplies stash.

"All right." Claudia comes back about the time Joshua's finishing up, with an extra-wide goo canister. "I think this should do the trick."
claudiometer: holding a Tesla (armed and dangerous)

[personal profile] claudiometer 2013-07-25 12:45 am (UTC)(link)
"Done and done," she says, fishing said spare Tesla out of her tool belt. "Try not to shoot me."
claudiometer: ye olde side-eye smirk (unimpressed by your shenanigans)

[personal profile] claudiometer 2013-07-25 12:52 am (UTC)(link)
"I'll say."
She's going to relish this opportunity to drive Figgy.
