OOC: It got all late and we didn't get to play this out, and it'll likely be finished, but I'm adding it just 'cause I can. And the banner is beautiful.
Famke: *looks up from her book after the plane's finally taken off the ground and the seat belt signs are off* Excuse me ... excuse me ... oh, damn it. Qing jin! *waves an irritated hand at a stewardess, calling in Chinese* Qing, qing ni gei wo heshui? *ignorant to the fact that a lot of the passengers are probably staring at her like she's insane, even if the airline staff ARE Chinese*
Elliot:*fully engrossed in his novel, however bad it is, he only hears the "...wo heshui?" and his brain automatically says, "native." But a wandering eye reports, "NOT native," and he looks up a moment with his usual sleepy-eyed expression. He wishes, fervently, that he knew the language, but imagines that he'll be picking it up. He picked up German easily enough, although that's very old knowledge.* I imagine they know some english, too, *he murmurs, eyes returning to the book in his lap. Famke Janssen? What's she doing here?*
Famke: *after taking water from said stewardess, who graced her with a "Bu ke qi,"* They usually do, but it's easier when -- do I know you from somewhere? *She doesn't have the best memory of faces or names, but plenty of voices. Belatedly, she remembers she's holding the water and takes a sip* And before you even answer that, drink all the water you can, and once this plane touches down in Shanghai, be sure you don't drink it with ice.
Elliot:*he looks up, smiling faintly. Tiger's Eye angsts on, in the absense of his eyes.* Thanks, I'll remember that. And, possibly. *The Academy Award and all... jeez, that seems like years ago.* Goldenthal, Elliot Goldenthal, *he says, still in that same murmur, his eyes a little more alert now in the addition of some humor. I'd like the thank the Academy for putting my face, my sorry face, on television...*
Famke: Right, right! Musician, correct? *sips the water again, tentatively, wondering if maybe it too is tainted. Hopefully it's American tap water, anyway ...* And ... why're you going to China, if I dare ask?
