Never let two Tim clones stay with you. That's my advice.
My Tim clone and SG's Tim clone used to get on so well with each other - they even talked of collaborating on a new novel together. So, when SG asked if her Tim clone could come and stay with me while she's on her roadtrip, I thought it would be a marvellous idea. Tim and Ducky weren't best pleased as my flat is small enough already without another clone moving in, but as SG's Tim had told me it was only going to be for a week, they said it was okay.
Well, my Tim was in a bad mood before SG's Tim even arrived. I couldn't placate him at all. I tried everything to cheer him up - I even offered to dress up as Princess Leia from Return of the Jedi for him but nothing worked. When SG's Tim arrived, things didn't get better.
I baked chocolate cake for SG's Tim to make him feel welcome, and my Tim said that I never baked for him - which is a lie, I make him chocolate and caramel flapjacks all the time, which he totally loves. Ducky and I looked at each other and we knew we were going to have a hell of a week. I put a pot of tea on and Ducky tried to reason with the two Tims. You can't help but love Ducky, and the two Tims were no different. They both calmed down immediately.
Of course, it didn't last. My Tim suddenly went into total Alpha Male Mode. He was cracking his knuckles and stalking around SG's Tim like he was in the interrogation room again, and he even stopped shaving for a few days. It was terrible. The worst thing, though, was when I quietly asked SG's Tim if he had a tattoo like my Tim's. I don't think I could have said anything worse. Immediately my Tim flew into a rage, asking why on earth I would want to know such things about another Tim! I said I was only asking and that if SG's Tim didn't want to tell me, he didn't have to.
SG's Tim told me that he didn't have a tattoo - and my Tim's eyes suddenly took on an evil gleam. He grinned and nicely asked SG's Tim if he'd like to go out for a drive. SG's Tim took this to be a sign of him backing down and agreed, so off they went for about three hours. I was worried sick about them. Ducky tried to calm me down by giving me some of his L'Esprit de Courvoisier that La Grenouille had given to him. We talked about nice calming things for a few hours and then finally both the Tims rolled home. SG's Tim looked more pained than I've ever seen anyone look in my life, and told me that SG was due home the following day. My Tim looked very devious, and I decided I would have Words with him later.
So I made SG's Tim a huge packed lunch and fussed over him, made sure he had all clean clothes to go back home with and drove him to the airport. Just before we left, SG's Tim pulled me aside into the bathroom to show me what had happened. I was mildly shocked and deeply impressed but told him not to worry, I would tell my Tim off about it later. He thanked me for looking after him so well, and that he thought he'd put a few pounds on but it was okay because his jeans had started to get a bit loose on him anyway.
Anyway, he left a while ago and I just got back and told SG that Tim was on his way back - and she told me that she's still on her roadtrip with the Gibbs clones!!! Poor SG's Tim had been frightened away by my Tim!!!
Still - we were both totally chuffed to note that my Tim dragged SG's Tim to the local tattooist and insisted he got a tattoo on his ass that says "The Pro-Girls"!!!!!
I'm so sorry probette hon. I never thought that they would fight.
Don't worry about my Timmy though. Tony's still lounging on the beaches of Mallorca with my friend so he's not there to bother Tim. I bet when I get home my hard drive will be defragged, there will be a magical 10 GB extra space on my computer and the apartment will be spotless.
Tim will probably have a Star Wars marathon to calm his nerves and be a good clone other than that.
But I must say, The Pro-Girls on his butt, I am impressed. ;D
