[oom: Fry gets in a scuffle on his first day back at school. New kid Ben learns that poking people who don't like to be touched in the ear is a bad idea.]

Fry is in one corner, massaging his knuckles, which are just starting to swell up.

He's pretty sure he won that round, however, so he is trying to ignore them while he works on his flag design. One of the waitrats brings him an ice pack, which he rejects, because ew, cold.

It's a very important moment in a young boy's life in the 21st century. Mum and Dad finally decided to let Fry have a mobile phone.

Fry isn't quite sure what swung it, whether it was because almost everyone else in his class has one now, or because they're going to be allowed to use them in class next term, or whether it was because he's now allowed to go down to the playground at the end of the street.

But whatever it was, he now has one, albeit it's pretty basic, and it certainly couldn't be called a 'smart' phone. But according to Mum and Dad, there's nothing likely to be more reliable out there than a Nokia 3310.

The first business of the day is to choose a ring tone. Feel free to tell him to stop.

Fry slams the door behind him when he comes into the bar tonight, clutching a small black object. He looks around quickly, hoping to spot Gene, and then goes over to the bar.

"Bar, have you seen Gene? I need police advice or I might have to go on the run." he says.

This is the last time he takes advice from anyone with a pink moustache.

[ooc: Not plotlocked, but all threads millitimed to before Gene's]

Fry is sat at a table, looking at a small pile of ten bean seeds in front of him.

This is a stupid holiday homework project. Why can't his new teacher ask for a 'what did you do over the summer' scrapbook like a normal person?

After about ten minutes of staring at them, he opens the scrapbook and writes.

'1. I can line up the beans in a row.'

Outside on the grass, from the Scout Hut towards the beach, there is bunting and fairy lights and a large banner.

It's not long now until the Milliways County Fair, and Fry is working industriously in the back garden.

His broad beans have blackfly. He's not too happy about that, and is busy spraying them with soapy water to make the blackfly fall off. Occasionally, he gives a little exclamation of 'Ew' or 'Icky'.

Jim would rather not be here, it's fair to say. After introducing Sherlock to his new place of work, and securing somewhere modest to live, he'd prefer to be out there thinking up fun ways to terrorise the citizens of Los Santos, and making interior design choices. But seeing as his younger self showed up while he was away and certain things went badly, he figured it was better to come back and make sure the kid couldn't get back in and vent his frustration. Also, three days were up, and there's a certain fiction to maintain.

This is why he can be found at a table by the Observation Window, leafing through magazines that all claim to be able to provide him with the ideal home. He very much doubts it - none of the pictures involve rooms full of computers, a chemist's lab, or any surveillance equipment at all - but some of the paint combinations are nice. It keeps him from trying to find someone who can time-travel him back a few years, so he can throttle himself, at least.

[oom: Guppy speaks to his children about Wilford's dog, and Fry discovers Joram has been in a fight at school.]

Dad is definitely getting suspicious about the dog. The other day, he told Fry that he's not to go near the dog unless there's a trusted adult nearby. Fortunately, he didn't ask a direct question, because Fry can't lie very well. Apparently the idea that someone might pay a six and eight year old to dog-sit hasn't occurred to him yet.

Fry hadn't intended to introduce Buster to his own dog, Pooh, but Pooh followed him in tonight and before he noticed, the two of them were sniffing and licking each other and doing just fine. And now the two dogs are curled up in front of the fire together sleeping.

He's keeping an eye on them both nonetheless, with his homework in front of him, and his straw hat for the photography challenge next to him. He's filling in his gardening diary for the garden box project at school, drawing some pictures of his seedlings.
