12/28/2004: "Cuttings from a chatroom floor."
At university - and for a few years after - I used 'Talkers': ASCII chatrooms. I've just started using one again, to pass the time during my Christmas holiday. All the names have been changed; including mine from something other than, to IDgaf. Here's an excerpt from a recent conversation. Imagine all these people sitting in a room 'Talking'. My comments are in bold. Two other things: I can't see what I've typed until I've hit return. Hence the spelling mistakes. The crack at the end is about the tsunami that killed thousands of people a couple of days ago.
>Smooth hugs Katrin
Smooth kisses Katrin shamelessly while he's at it.
You say 'Ahh. Net.love.'
You emote : Scalpel whispers to no one in particular. "It'll never last."
Smooth says 'Yes, indeed. And you'd think I'd be too old for such thing.'
Smooth exclaims 'well aren't you mr. cynical today!'
Katrin cuddles and kisses and makes bystanders ill.
Lascivia grins, he's cynical every day
You ask 'Ill with that? Do you have the herpes?'
You say 'I've already got some wicked warts on the wahiney. I don't need anything else man.'
Smooth nuzzles with Katrin and makes Scalpel make disparaging remarks.
Katrin murmurs 'I love you' and strokes Smooth's hair and wonders if she's hit nauseating yet.
Lascivia fucking vomits on you both
Lascivia says 'for god's sake, use your room'
Lascivia exclaims 'spare us!'
Frederica hands Lic a mop
Smooth says 'I think the phrase you want is 'get a room'.'
Lascivia says 'she made me do it.'
Darkness only gets sick if it was real.
Lascivia says 'No, you don't have to get a room'
corpse says 'really laccie, the vomiting is worse than the kissing'
Lascivia says 'You already HAVE a room'
You say 'Is it hard to geta bride over the internet these days? I know they
cloed romanian orphan adoptions. Jeewz, I udnno. OPut "Single man" on the
adoption certificate and they get all supicious.'
You emote : Scalpel did ask for one nearing 16.
>Darkness imagines it's as easy as anything else, Scalpel.
You say 'I figured they had a back room with all the tards they couldn't give
away. Maybe I'd get lucky with one in terms of looks.'
>Katrin thinks . o O ( 16 mos.? )
Darkness asks 'You want a retarded bride?'
You say 'Well I reason she won;'t talk back. If she does, it'll be incomprhen
> You say '"Go and do the ironing!" "Mwherherehedr!" "No, sorry. Couldn't
>Lascivia laughs, god you're awful
Entropy says 'get a filipino mail order bride'
deadman thinks . o O ( now that's the scalpel i remember ;) )
Lascivia says 'amen'
Darkness asks 'Why don't we have Scalpel here more often?'
You say 'They've all been washed away, haven't they? I'd have to get married
on a raft.'
