Such nostalgia! I think that was the first OTTcolored, even before there was a name for them. Awesome (to use the ancient word for it)! Set the standard!

Ch*rp! Pope! (of 1950, for the record) Other firsts (or earlies) of things that have since become a thing. (an OTThing?)

I have amused myself by writing a prediction (pretty accurate, I think) about what will happen the first time I meet BlitzGirl in real life. For reasons that will be revealed, this event must take place in the semi-distant future, in June 2031 to be precise. The story is a kind of continuation of this post from September, but it can just as well be read on its own.

Spoilered because of length (but reasonably safe for work).

The future, June 2031. A phone goes Boom de Yada, Boom de Yada.

B: Hello?

M: Hellö, is this Ms. BlitzGirl?

B: Yes, but they call me BlitzWoman now. And you are...?

M: I am Mikrit, the Swedish ÖTTer. I dön't knöw if you remember me, but...

B: Old man Mikrit? Really? I remember every OTTer, Mr. Mikrit. You have a charming accent.

M: I häve an accent? I mean, thänk you. Er, I have been Waiting for this...

B: Praise the GLR!

M: Um, yes. I wonder, would you find it creepy if I asked you for a däte?

B: Let me check. You posted a double dactyl about your 50th birthdip on NP 783...

M: You remember that?

B: I remember every post, Mr. Mikrit. So, your current age must now be ... and if I take half of that and add 7... no, since my birthdip last wip, that would no longer be creepy.

M: So you take the ständard creepiness rule literally, then?

B: Is the Mome a Randallian?

M: I suppose she is - I hoped you wöuld say that. How äbout it then?

B: A date with you would be 243.

M: What's thät?

B: Footnote 243 I mean, introduced on NP 12835. It means "ladymolpybuggish".

M: And thät means...?

B: *Sigh.* It means: Not as great as a flutterbeewing but less repugnant than a dungbeetlemolpy. I thought you followed the thread, Mr. Mikrit.

M: I do, but my memory is nöt very good nöwadays, I'm afraid. So, thät means you äccept? In that cäse, Ms. BlitzWoman, mäy I humbly suggest that you cöme and visit me here? I could show you my Father's collection of diacritics, mäybe we can see a majestic mööse, änd we could täke a tour around the city on my möbility scooter.

B: Well, all right, but I can only be away from home for a few hours. My 24 redundacats needs feeding.

M: What footnöte is that?

B: That's not a footnote, that's how many they are.

M: Ah. But thät's a problem, because the flight to Sweden täkes at least half a day, I mean dip.

B: What do you mean, flight? You must have forgotten that this is the future, which is pretty cool, you know.

M: Oh. So it is. My mind must have been wåndering. Right, I will give you the coördinates for the teleport booth at Gustavus Adolphus Square. I'll meet you there, shäll I?

B: Please do. I will just pack a few things first.

M: Right.

*Eerie sound of teleportation, approximately BSZHWAMMMMMmmm...*

M: A boa and a fläg hat? You dressed up like your ävatar so I wöuld recognize you? What ä nice idea, Ms. BlitzWoman.

B: What do you mean, "dressed up"? This is what I always wear. And you. Mr. Mikrit, you look exactly like, er...

M: Like my ävatar, you mean? The händsome äthletic dancer?

B: Not really. I was going to say, exactly like Cueball.

M: Well, I äm allergic to Regain. But änyway, let me shöw you around. The statue you see över there is King Gustavus Adolphus, who föunded the city in 1620.

B: I see he has a very stylish hat, and he tries to look important as he points at the ground. And there is an inscription, "HÄR SKALL STADEN LIGGA", what does that mean?

M: That's what he said! HA HA HA! Ha ha ha! *Snicker, giggle, snort!*

B: I beg your pardon, Mr. Mikrit?

M: It means "HERE, THE TOWN SHALL BE". That's what the King said when he föunded the city.

B: And you find that amusing?

M: No no, I wås making a jöke. You see, in America you häve these "That's-what-she-said" jökes, so I thought it wås funny when I instead said, "that's what he said"!

B: Oh, I understand now. Very droll, Mr. Mikrit. Ha. Ha.

M: Thänk you, Ms. BlitzWoman. I am hilariöus, am I not? Äs a mätter of fact, the inhabitants of this city häve a reputation för wit and humour.

B: Indeed? Any special kind of humour, perchance?

M: Yes, nöw that I come to think aböut it, it's quite a cöincidence. You knöw, in the first yips of the OTT, when you pretended to dislike puns?

B: I pretended?

M: Yes, yes, you did, it was very funny. You pretended that you wöuld hunt döwn punners with a mighty weapon of some sort. A punsword, wasn't it?

B: Something like that, yes.

M: Great days, great days. But then, the punning in the OTT grädually ceased. I never understööd why.

B: It's a mystery, Mr. Mikrit.

M: It sure is. But as I said, it is a cöincidence, because the inhabitants in this city are especially fönd of puns. Just look here in the löcal newspaper. They have a column called "Wörst puns from the readership", where the readers can submit their puns. These puns are usually hörribly cöntrived, but thät mäkes it all the merrier.

B: Oh...

M: I say, you are swäying a little, Ms. BlitzWoman. I suppose it's the jet läg, I mean the teleport läg. Here, we can sit down on this bench.

B: Thank you.

M: Well, to cöntinue, there is also a löcal tradition that each public building shöuld have a funny nicknäme, preferably a pun. But they are nöt easy to translate to English.

B: Oh please, Mr. Mikrit, don't bother!

M: But I äm sure you would enjöy them if I only cöuld... Öh, here is one that might wörk in English too. You see, we have a Catholic church in a place called the Heath, and since a church can have a döme, we call it the Heath-en-döme, which sounds like Heathendom, which is our word for Paganism! Clever, is it nöt?
...
I say, what's that you are unpacking from your long and narrow suitcase, Ms. BlitzWoman? Öh, I didn't knöw that you are a lumberjack. Höw interesting. Änd you häve heard of our majestic Scandinavian förests, and wånted to come prepared, am I right?

This midnight sun cän sure pläy tricks. For a möment there, it almöst looked as if your eyes were starting to glow red.
