All your coffee are belong to Gabe!

Location: The Cravat
Time: N/A. (Though for all intents and purposes it is morning.)


This morning, as with many mornings, Gabe's first thought was one word. This one word was 'coffee.' He carefully extricated himself from his and Jeannot's bed, making sure not to wake his love as he did. He left the room quietly and went down the stairs, looking for any new room, hopefully one containing a coffee-maker and some grounds. As luck ((or possibly the BC's inherent MKCSR powers)) would have it, the first room he decided to explore was the kitchen, the coffee-maker on the counter like a gift from G-d. He only had to look through two cupboards before finding the coffee grounds and cups, and he set about making it, humming Chelsea Hotel #2 very loudly to himself. Once done, he sat upon the counter, impatiently watching it percolate.

"Fridge?" Holmes said, his sleepiness not assisting his general confusion. "That thing, you mean?" He walked suspiciously over to it, as though afraid it might bite him, and reached out to open the door. His eyes widened as a gust of cold pressurized air blew out at him. "My God," he cried, before he could resist, "That's incredible!"

Gabe laughed. "No," he told Holmes. "It's technology. And, Jean, the light turns on by itself. When you open the door a switch is activated and it turns on the bulb. It's for keeping perishable foods cold." He leaned over, trying to get a view of the fridge's contents around Holmes. He couldn't, really. "What's in there, anyhow?" he asked.

"Hmm. A few cans, what appears to be some sort of packaged meat. . .milk. . .good heavens, this thing must be useful." Holmes put one slightly tentative hand into the fridge and moved a few things around. "I am not a cook, although I can deal with the very rudiments. And you both?"

"I'm not a chef or anything, but I can keep myself fed," Gabe replied, and took the plastic-bagged bread from Jeannot. "This is plastic, love," he said, smiling. "And not all plastic looks like this. Some is clear and bendable, but sometimes it's coloured and hard." He took one of the letters off the fridge, picking the 'J' especially, and pressed it into Jeannot's hand. "This is plastic as well. What the plastic looks like has to do with what chemicals are used to make it, mostly." He shrugged and undid the twistie on the plastic bag. "Toast, anyone?" he asked, feeling generous.

"Certainly, thank you," Holmes said. "And for Watson, if you don't mind. He'll want breakfast when he wakes up. I swear, the man eats like nothing I've ever seen. But this plastic -" He picked another letter off of the refridgerator, privately noting its magnetism. "Remarkable. What is its chemical composition?" Holmes being Holmes, it did not occur to him that Gabe probably wouldn't know.

((Sorry about that, didn't see your post.))

"I can cook," Holmes explained, "because I'm often forced to live alone for long periods of time, working on a client's case. I try to keep the more dangerous part of my business as far away from our - pardon, I mean from my home as possible."

"I haven't a clue what its chemical composition is," Gabe admitted, taking two slices of bread from the bag. "I honestly spent more time skipping Chem than I did attending the class." He placed the slices in the toaster on the counter and pressed them down. He fiddled with the knob, unsure of how to set it. He finally picked 'two,' as if it wasn't toasty enough he could always just put them in for longer. "Is there any butter in there?" he asked.

"I believe so - but what on earth is that? Some sort of heating device?" Holmes looked at the toaster as though it might burst into flames at any moment.

"Toaster," Gabe replied, simply. "It toasts. And give me the butter, would you?"

((Aww. "It is from the future." For some reason this line is the cutest thing ever.))

"Not fire, no," Gabe said. "It's heated electrically." He tilted the toaster towards them so that they could see the inside, the orange-red heating mechanism and the slices of bread themselves. "And I'm too tired to explain electricity," he added. "Ask Holmes."

Holmes gingerly reached into the fridge for the butter and handed it to Gabe, still slightly distrustful of the new technology. "A toaster," he said, feigning confidence. "I see."
