MONDO EXTRAS

Let's Wrinkle!

A Wrinkle in Time

The twins have freakish deep voices, just like Kitty Pryde does, so I don't really know who's yelling what as the kids all come running in and yell about how Kitty got into a fight and it was Eric O'Keefe that started it and yadda yadda. Dr. Mrs. stares into space learning all about tesseracts and trying to hack into government databases, shocked out of her reverie by the mention of Mr. Dr. Murry. "Find anything today?" asks Kitty. "During my exhaustive internet search of the word tesseract? Yes actually, a webcam popped up, along with a Mapquest thing leading right to your dad who disappeared a year ago without a trace."

Dr. Mrs. tells Kitty that the school called again thanks to her behavior with Mr. Porter, and smiles way too indulgently as Kitty explains that "it's just tough." "One day you'll find a Happy Medium," Dr. Mrs. says, somewhat enigmatically. There is thunder, and there is lightning, which goes sideways. There is wind, and a crow. There is extreme CW earhole, because the voices are back. "We are with you..."

CW is backwards on the bed. He sits up. The crow is back at Meg's window. She dykes her way over to check it out. It taps some more, and the score calms itself for a bit. More tapping. This goes on for one million years. She and the crow do that Close Encounters thing where she taps back and I pretend it's like some kind of complex mathematics code that is the Rosetta Stone of man/bird communication. She stares up at her ceiling for awhile, and makes faces like she's figured something out or something, but she totally hasn't.

Kitty heads downstairs after establishing some form of communication with the crow, I guess -- and by the way, this girl sleeps in a hoodie and ponytail, for some uncomfortable reason -- and looks in on the twins, then down the hall to see Dr. Mrs., who's got a tight little bod going, actually.

She hears a computer beeping but CW's not in bed, either regular or upside down. She scopes a picture of Dr. Mr. on the stairs and touches it for no reason. CW is making sandwiches in the kitchen. God, he's creepy. "I knew you'd be down," he says. "Of course you did," Kitty responds. Because he's psychic. "There was this huge black crow right outside my window." "Yeah I know, she's cool." CW offers her some sandwich and tells her there's cocoa on the stove.

What the hell was all of that about? I'll tell you: nothing. He's psychic. They already told you that. They're telling you again. He's super-psychic. Crazy mental powers up in this hizzy. Get it?
