    Arrgh, hazard of having multiple tabs open at once. At least autocorrupt didn't strike.

    I guess that people don't really know that Sam is one heck of a pilot when he want's to be. I mean how many people can get a blimp to do a loop?

    And for Mother's Day, we get a reminder that Florence's adoptive mother taught her to cook. Or tried, at least.

    Silly Niomi. Florence can smell your lack of appreciation.

    And we're finally wrapping up the letters home segment and moving on to the station. Can Sam actually be a force for law and order? Will Winston's family accept Florence, or will she be obliged to kick their butts? Will Helix be able to avoid getting knocked to pieces yet again?

    Stay tuned.

    Wow. Hot sauce really is a commodity here, if the air traffic person wants two bottles unseen untasted.

    Considering their remoteness and the costs of transportation, ANYTHING beyond the basic necessities is most likely a commodity.

    My understanding is that people who live in space habitats tend to have constantly clogged sinuses. This leaves them unable to taste things normally. So things that are spicy both enable them to have tasty food and to clear out the sinuses for a little. I do remember that their attempt to get paid twice for this trip was to bring along things that were light and valuable, which mostly ended up being pepper plants and hot sauce. I think they have a few replacement parts for the station, but Florence insisted on them bringing those at cost. They also are going to deliver the back-up reactor and get a replacement reactor for the Savage Chicken.

    Honestly, I expect Sam to burn all their profits from this trip in about 2 hours when they get back Jeanside.

    Mostly because he prefers not to pay for anything. Is it still a five-finger-discount if you have an uncounted number of tentacles?

    He's probably better at handling finances after having taken a basic accounting class.

    Speaking of that class, I'm delighted by the ongoing joke of Sam finding accounting an engrossing and enlightening subject, simply because it expands the realm of larcenies available to him.

    And now we see the effects of time in microgravity. Especially if you skimp on the required exercise. I'll bet a quatloo Florence isn't having any problems.

    I'll take that bet, though my money is on Florence have significantly less problems. I expect this for 3 reasons: first, she has spent time on a space station before (I think, can't even guess where it was mentioned in comic), second, I think she shares a lot of genetic benefits with Winston (who has the full spacer kit and experiences less bone and muscle loss), and third, I think she has more self discipline than either Niomi or Sam.

    She mentions explosive decompression drills and envying Sam for his ability to change underwear without taking his suit off. Significant station time seems to be a given.

    Okay, so is Florence having problems because she hasn't walked on 2 legs for a month, or because she didn't exercise as often as she should have?

    Have you ever been on a boat for a while, then when you get off the boat you feel like the land is rocking underneath you? It's probably just that multiplied by 10000. They haven't experienced actual gravity in a long time it's going to take a little getting used to.

    Her yellow coveralls are indeed more natural looking than anything else.

    It's just a fur+clothing mindclash.
    The jumpsuit cover enough fur that you can ignore it, but the classy dress reveal enough to maximise the problem.

    Solution : teach real world monkey to wear casual clothes, and create widely popular sitcom starring them. It might be a tad unethical.

    Could just be the sudden shock all astronauts seem to experience after returning to gravity.

    Alternatively: she spent too much time opting for 4-leg fun exercise. http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff3500/fc03413.htm

    You mean, this little experiment? Do be careful if you dig extensively, though-- there's earworm-grade stuff in there and stuff you'll never unsee.

    Niomi describes herself as "unreasonable" and "selfish".

    Sam apparently aspires to being these things ... I can see him thinking he's currently the opposite :P
    I'm pretty much the opposite of concise. If I fail to get to the point, please ask me and I'm happy to (attempt to) clarify.
