The Resurrection of Professor Snively and Her “Infinite Improbability Drive”

August 3rd, 2010 by Devi Snively (The Directrix)

imagesMy life has been filled with an uncanny amount of, well, uncanniness quite frankly.  Despite my fairly vast travels, the world seems so infinitely tiny at times, rather frighteningly so.  This latest episode, however, has me convinced that perhaps it’s not the universe, maybe it’s just me.  Or do things like this happen to everyone?
