I had to send it to your "rv" account because the other one kept bouncing back; do you have me on block again?

We just had breakfast at the "new" Dave's Diner. They are opening at 7 am now.

Yes, it is. Dike aankawu also means "God", so I'm technically "Goddess of the Northern Lights".
Do you speak Tlingit?

I haven't been to work yet, I misread my schedule. I thought I go in this morning but it turns out I start at like 3pm.
However I have many archived stories of evil hummer man on tap.

Alaskan454, I'm going to burn down your house on the way to Thorne Bay if you don't answer your e-mail.

PM me with a proper e-mail address, please, and make sure I'm not on block.

Default Evil Hummer Man Story 1

I'm minding my own business, grinding coffee, when the person who was working drive through says to me...
Drive Thru Person: Someone's asking for you.
Me: Really? Who is it?
Drive Thru Person: I dunno. He just said he wanted to talk to the person who owns the Alaska car.
Me: Okee dokee.
So I head for drive thru.
Me: How are you today?
Evil Hummer Man (EHM): Fine. You're from Alaska?
Me: Yep, Juneau.
EHM: That's cool, I'm going on vacation there soon.
Me: Oh, neat. Are you going on a cruise?
EHM: No, it's a hunting trip.
Me: Sweet. No better place for it.
EHM: Yeah, I cannot wait to slaughter poor helpless fuzzy animals.
Me: (affronted) Well, that's not very nice.
EHM: You're not one of them tree-huggers, are you?
Annoyed, I walk away.
EHM: (in distance) Was it something I said!?

Which one are you using? Alaskool has a nice online dictionary. Sealaska corp also has some very helpful references. I don't know a lot of Tlingit, just bits. It is my minor, but I haven't taken any classes yet. I do speak French though.
