Undermount sinks are the most popular with granite, marble, & corian countertops.

A fill for my favourite spambot <3

Tim knew he should leave well enough alone, but Alex had been needling him all day. Criticising his line delivery, his body language and finally, his hairstyle, which was beyond the pale as far as Tim was concerned.

As they wrapped up the final shot of the day, Seth looking unhappy and even Brian giving Alex slightly irritated glances as he packed up his things, Alex pompously declared to the camera "And this concludes today's Marble Hornets shoot." Alex glance around at the others who were studiously avoiding his eyes as they got ready to leave. "Hopefully next time everyone will be a little more focused and a little more professional."

Tim's head snapped round. This was the final straw. He could see Brian giving him a warning look out of the corner of his eye, but Tim wasn't going to let Alex get away with being such a dick to everyone. He knew he couldn't outright confront Alex about his behaviour without being booted from the production - something he did not want to happen. However much he wasn't enjoying working on Alex's film, this was the first time he had ever been a part of something, ever been accepted without question. He wasn't going to throw that away easily.

As Alex packed up the camera, Tim knew he had to get him back, but subtly, in a way that wouldn't look like an overt attack. He sidled up to Alex, who glanced at him in slight surprise.

"So, Alex," Tim said. "I was just wondering something."

"Yes?" Said Alex, irritably. "What?"

"Where'd you get the title "Marble Hornets" from anyway?"

Alex stood up straight. "Did you not read the script? It's explained at the end."

Tim smiled, slyly. "I read it, but I just, I don't know where you got the concept of hornets made of marble? Marble is what you make kitchen surfaces out of right? And kitchen sinks. I mean, it's not exactly the first thing I'd consider if I was going to make some ornaments for my mantelpiece or something. It's not really the right material, you know? It's not realistic."

Alex just stared at him blankly. "People are going to see the title and think it's either some b-movie about monster insects made of rock, or else they're going to assume it's some weird hipster metaphor for something. Imagine how they'd react when they find it's totally literal. Hornet figurines made from marble. Seriously?"

Alex opened his mouth but no words came out. He looked stunned.

Tim turned around and walked back to his car, ignoring the questioning look he was getting from Brian.

As he walked away from Alex, struggling not to laugh, the only thought that entered his mind was this: "Burn."
