quote:Even if you show up late, you get to be entertained.
WhiteWitch 20:20» Actually, you're a little more exciting. THat's why I'm divorcing him.
slowIQ 20:20» uh!
WhiteWitch 20:21» LOL!
slowIQ 20:21» erm... (the thick silence looms over our conversation... outside the wind howls and a dog barks... somewhere a door slams in the gale).
WhiteWitch 20:21» So where in Britian are you?
slowIQ 20:22» so... umm nice weather we are having?
WhiteWitch 20:22» I don't know about you but it's damned cold here.
slowIQ 20:23» my connection disconnects every 2 hours... the interval will be in a short time (if I vanish).
slowIQ 20:23» Essex
WhiteWitch 20:23» Why does that happen?
slowIQ 20:23» it had a bad reputation!! but only if you listen to Romour
slowIQ 20:24» because in the UK we have ISP's that don't like to let us stay connected.. unless one is luck enough to have broad band..
WhiteWitch 20:24» I've been trying to get over there for years.
ulises21 20:24» please i need a serial of icuii
Holly 20:24» Hello ulises21.
WhiteWitch 20:24» I seel.
WhiteWitch 20:24» -l
WhiteWitch 20:25» I have friends in South Wales that have been trying to get me over there.
slowIQ 20:25» I am not rich enough to have broad band... and I live by the seaside in a small town.. that you might call "The Sticks" so there is no modern technology here.
WhiteWitch 20:26» Gotcha. So you're doing a dial up? That sucks.
WhiteWitch 20:27» It's so quiet tonight. I can't get used to having different weekends.
slowIQ 20:28» I am confused... they move the weekend in America?... I would like a weekend.. (I work weekends).
WhiteWitch 20:28» That's what I mean. I work Friday thru Monday. So in essence this is my weekend.
WhiteWitch 20:31» Looks like you poofed. Guess I should've asked if you'd be back.
slowIQ 20:31» have just reconnected :)
slowIQ 20:32» vanished
slowIQ 20:32» varnished
slowIQ 20:33» varnished is good if I get varnsihed then I will have no probablems with dry rot...
WhiteWitch 20:33» ah. just getting some food
WhiteWitch 20:34» That's better.
slowIQ 20:34» oh okay... I would get a cup of tea.. but.. I quit tea... I am English, this is my fith day without tea
WhiteWitch 20:34» I don't know how I'd cope without my tea
WhiteWitch 20:36» Boy it's really late by you. Isn't it around 4:30 am?
WhiteWitch 20:36» There you are
slowIQ 20:36» mmm yes your about right there..
WhiteWitch 20:37» I'd be trash tomorrow if I stayed up that late.
slowIQ 20:38» mmm the only physical activitiy planned for tomorrow is Swimming in the Evening and I am dead slow anyway so it makes little difference.
WhiteWitch 20:39» So you have all day to sleep then? Must be nice. I have a 5 year old that needs to get to school tomorrow morning.
slowIQ 20:40» a girl that I work with has a daughter... who is very young...
slowIQ 20:40» she tells me frequently that she is a hellian... I think it is an american term for difficult
slowIQ 20:41» as a child I was incredibly difficult...
slowIQ 20:41» but no.. I don't have all day to sleep.
WhiteWitch 20:41» Really? So was I. My son is very good though.
WhiteWitch 20:42» Do you go to school?
slowIQ 20:43» No I finsihed university last year
WhiteWitch 20:43» For computers?
slowIQ 20:44» this will make you laugh okay: A Joint Degree in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Visualisation and Animation
slowIQ 20:44» what did you do at school? I wished I had done English
WhiteWitch 20:44» I think that's pretty cool. What did you plan on doing with it?
WhiteWitch 20:45» I went for psychology. Actually I'm still going for psychology.
slowIQ 20:45» when I went to university there were lots of jobs in Software development... now I have finished with a softwre related degree... there seem to be no jobs
WhiteWitch 20:46» someday I hope to make a tone of cash putting bored housewives on Prozac so I can spend my time doing exactly what I do now.
slowIQ 20:46» oh ic... so can you tell what I am wearing right now from what I am saying and without looking at the cam.
WhiteWitch 20:47» Hold out. The industry is bad now but it will pick up again.
WhiteWitch 20:48» Boy that's a twist. Usually I hear "what are you wearing" instead of "what am I wearing."
slowIQ 20:48» I will just keep on contributing to the downfall of society I guess (booze)
slowIQ 20:49» yes but you see... I am completely in love with myself...
WhiteWitch 20:49» You never really know where your degree is going to get you. My husband has a degree in journalism and does computer integration.
WhiteWitch 20:50» Are you now? Well that's not entirely a bad thing
slowIQ 20:51» I used to know what I wanted... but now I just let other people decide where possible.
WhiteWitch 20:51» You are far to young to be that disillusioned
slowIQ 20:52» ha! its not a bad thing to be completely in love with one's self.
WhiteWitch 20:52» It's not. It's better than self loathing
WhiteWitch 20:52» Far too many people suffer from that
slowIQ 20:54» really... my parents have left me with the notion that just because I feel hard done by... about some things.. .doesn't mean that I should inflict pain on other (well not all the time anyway)... so hence take a rather lame (despite perks) job to not rely
slowIQ 20:54» entirely on others.
slowIQ 20:55» do you do much on people who are manipulative with guilt trips?
WhiteWitch 20:56» You mean besides avoid them?
slowIQ 20:56» :)
slowIQ 20:57» so thats me then... I seem to do that... so better avoid me : (
WhiteWitch 20:57» I prefer to choose my values and live by them. I let others do the same. It's hard for someone to make you feel guilty if you feel you are living your life according to your own conscience.
slowIQ 20:57» ;) i find that there is a problem often however.
WhiteWitch 20:58» such as?
slowIQ 20:58» mmm I think you may be correct...
slowIQ 20:59» oh.. a problem.. well only if you adopt the notion that people who are no productive are unfair... (that will no doubt include me)
WhiteWitch 21:00» Depends on what you mean by being productive.
slowIQ 21:00» it seems to me that because people are part of society they then become obliged to be more than a spender... which doesn't always correlate with everyones notions...
slowIQ 21:01» of what is wrong and right.
slowIQ 21:02» actually you know what you will just have to take my word for it (or not) when I suggest that it all makes sense to me when it is not about 5am but... right now I seem to be talking poppy cock
WhiteWitch 21:02» That is true. But I tend to think that most people miss the point. Those who spend too much time trying to be a productive member of society, tend to neglect the nourishment of the self.
WhiteWitch 21:04» I should really not be eating this late at night.
slowIQ 21:04» uh, deep terms like the self ... I think I should bail on the line of conversation
slowIQ 21:04» is it late there? what is the time.
WhiteWitch 21:04» Ahahhaha. THat's what happens when you start talking to a witch.
WhiteWitch 21:04» It's just midnight
slowIQ 21:05» Quite often... actually I find that I am talking rubbish.,.. it has something to do with that slow IQ ... again
WhiteWitch 21:06» I see no evidence of that. Just someone that marches to a different drum. I think that's a cool way to be.
slowIQ 21:08» oooh... that feels like a compliment... one of my friends at university used to say that I am diggin for compliments..
George 21:09» hello
Holly 21:09» Hello George.
George 21:09» someone to see
WhiteWitch 21:09» Everyone is diggin for compliments. It's how we judge ourselves.
slowIQ 21:10» so now... I get to pay you compliemnts... okay but I can only think of bad things... like you are too cute to be a conventional witch
WhiteWitch 21:10» LOL. I'm not sure what a conventional witch is but I'm pretty sure I'm not one.
slowIQ 21:12» i would still be pleased if you turned me into a cat... especially if it was my grandmothers cat
WhiteWitch 21:13» I take it your grandmother knows how to spoil cats.
slowIQ 21:13» and when she was still alive also, because she used to feed him fresh fish every day and she had a beautiful garden that was probably like a jungle to him
slowIQ 21:14» : ) got it in one.
WhiteWitch 21:14» I tend to think that cats are the master race of this earth. They just let us think we are.
slowIQ 21:14» if you have ever noticed the way cats can just ... on a pile of pullovers all day and watch the sun creep across the garden.
slowIQ 21:15» I tried it a few times... it was fairly pleasant. watching grass grow.
slowIQ 21:15» mmm thats what me an people here say also.
WhiteWitch 21:15» Mine get a look across their face from time to time and i swear they are contacting the mother ship via telepathy. :)
slowIQ 21:17» oh... well erm orus don't do that (I don't think???) but.. they certainly know what they want and need no psycology to evaluate the next move... its usually ... Food.. Stroke... Food ... push off... Food
WhiteWitch 21:19» Speaking of, mine are telling me that they want to go to sleep and my warmth is requred
slowIQ 21:19» its odd...
WhiteWitch 21:19» So I'm off to bed. Thanks for the chat though. It was very enjoyable.
slowIQ 21:19» you sleep with your cats... mmm me too.
WhiteWitch 21:20» Actually, they allow me to sleep with them
slowIQ 21:20» I said its odd before... because.. you look quite a lot like someone I went to high school with
WhiteWitch 21:20» I think it's very nice of them to permit me to feed them, shelter them and keep them warm at night.
slowIQ 21:21» mm our cats... well actually only my grans cat tends to wander up here for the conversation and falls asleep on my bed I guess.
WhiteWitch 21:21» If she looks like me and wasn't a teacher then she must've had a hard life.
slowIQ 21:22» ...well... I suppose... there must have been something odd about her as she was one of the few girls (now women) that talked to me in school.
WhiteWitch 21:23» Then she obviously had taste.
slowIQ 21:23» in a very round about way that is supposed to be a compliment ... though one that can only be accepted by you if you are a friend.
WhiteWitch 21:23» Well maybe someday you will consider me that
slowIQ 21:23» she obviously had taste.... !! go to bed before I start thinking I have a crush on you...
WhiteWitch 21:24» Good night. Till we meet again. :)
slowIQ 21:24» yes goodnight
Holly 21:26» Hello slowIQ
Holly 22:45» Hello Ouroboros

Yes well we have to find something to do when you're not around to entertain us Ouro. :p

I deny all knowledge of chatting so intimately with WhiteWitch... though I did have fun.
...Anyway it was not my fault she was too sweet and I am too easily seduced by people who will actually talk to me!! (see the text half an hour or so before the excerpt above).
