changed username to Pamela Dr. D.: haha Pamela: hmm, now who could that be? Dr. D.: Though here she is right now. rich-c: well what do you know - she made it! - hi daughter Pamela: I'm gonna be useless tonite - misspelled my name three times! Pamela: Hi, Dad Mrs. D.: hi Pam Pamela: nobody throwing lightning bolts at me tonite : ) rich-c: how is the new fridge? working OK? Pamela: good evening, Mrs. D - long time no see : ) Dr. D.: She's too busy eating ice cream to type. Pamela: got it aired out but haven't started it yet Dad - still have to defrost the old one. Will do that this weekend. Pamela: Slander! rich-c: let me know how it works out, then, since it has never been used or tsted Dr. D.: I am better at multi-tasking it than her. Mrs. D.: when it comes to ice cream, perhaps Pamela: that's why I want a laptop - so I can do stuff out in the living room and still not miss too much Pamela: that way I could cook dinner rich-c: well, be patient a few more months - way things are going, by then they'll be paying you to take them Pamela: grant me patience - and I want it now! Dr. D.: haha Dr. D.: I thought it was "I want an Oompa-Loompa and I want it NOW!" rich-c: think I've heard t hat line somewhere before Pamela: since I didn't get home till 5:30, time has been a little thin on the ground tonite Dr. D.: Willy Wonka Pamela: I didn't see the movie, Rich, and haven't read the book since I was a child rich-c: Oh, I had a session with Dr. Closner, who thinks he can salvage my broken tooth Dr. D.: See the Gene Wilder version...though the new one wasn't bad, just different. Dr. D.: Broken tooth?!? Pamela: I think my version of the line is taken from the serenity prayer rich-c: yes, it shattered on me during dinner Friday night Pamela: that's good news Dad rich-c: well, it will need a crown, but that's better than a root canal; or extraction Dr. D.: Hope it wasn't us that made it happen. Pamela: as the voice of experience, ya got that right rich-c: no, teeth that date back to before fluoridation don't have the shelf life of the current generation Pamela: it only took you 76 years to crack it, Dad : ) rich-c: well, I didn't have it that long, after all it was from the second set rich-c: and besides, I won't be 76 until about 2 more weeks Pamela: picky, picky : ) Dr. D.: It is rather sparse here tonight...I just checked coleco and nobody is there, so that is good at least. Pamela: suddenly August has become like May - lotsa stuff going on rich-c: oh, the Slopsemas have been coming late these days, ditto Guy B. Pamela: I suspect we'll get the Slopsemas and Guy B before too long, and Ron at about 9:45 rich-c: and Daniel and GuyF turn up any time depending on work schedules and stuff Dr. D.: Well we won't be waiting around too much longer here :-S rich-c: oh, you can afford an hour or two, it isn't that far to Cleveland Pamela: they just have too much to do tonite Dad rich-c: by the way, our trip home on Monday was unbelievable Dr. D.: Have to be up at 5 AM with Rin to get her to work by about 7:30 AM. Dr. D.: In what way? We had no problems at all.

changed username to Daniel B Daniel B: bonsoir les amis Pamela: hi Daniel Daniel B: hello Dr.D, Pam, Rich and 'Rin rich-c: that way - I didn't even have to take it off cruise control till I hit highway 400 in Toronto rich-c: ssalut, Daniel Dr. D.: Hi Daniel. Pamela: do you use your cruise control Rich? rich-c: usually I can't use crusie control closer in than Milton Daniel B: what is the subject tonight? Dr. D.: I don't have cruise control, Richard, but it was still an enjoyable drive. Dr. D.: I put a "Just Married" sign in the back window of the Voyager and we got lots of honks and waves all the way to Toronto. Pamela: I don't like it - not enough control rich-c: cruise control is very good for the fuel economy, Rich, and I need all I can get Pamela: I meant to ask you Rich, how did you print the sign? Daniel B: I see... Dr. D.: I didn't, I taped a bunch of legal-size sheets together and wrote it out with a Sharpie. rich-c: we're talking about Rich and Erin's wedding last weekend
moved to room Meeting Place Daniel B: I figured that
changed username to Guy Foster Pamela: you wrote it?? Wow, I want your handwriting : ) Daniel B: wedding... Pamela: Hi, Gui rich-c: that's why Erin is on as Mrs.D. Dr. D.: The last bit of the "d" in "Married" didn't quite fit, so I put it on the outside of the glass, totally covered with tape in case I needed to use the rear wiper. Guy Foster: Congratulations on the young couple for getting married! rich-c: hello, Guy Pamela: well fair warning, it's supposed to rain tomorrow Daniel B: you are lucky to not have to write "nouveaux mariés" Dr. D.: It wasn't that good, really, I just did it fast as I was waiting for Erin to pack up the bouquet for travel so it wouldn't rattle about in the vase. Dr. D.: Thanks Guy. Dr. D.: I will take it off before we leave tomorrow :-( Pamela: it looks amazing nonetheless Pamela: why? Dr. D.: It will just be me alone going back in the car, it will look kinda lonely with no bride in the car. rich-c: well among other things he'll be alone in the van, and Customs might get curious Daniel B: salut Guy Pamela: at least leave it up till you get to the office Mrs. D.: hi Guy, hi Daniel Dr. D.: Well, I am telling them up-front, I already have an 8x10 color photo of us from the park in a fancy frame. Guy Foster: When we had our "Just Married" sign on the car, we crossed the border and the border guard just smiled at us and let us in... Was fun. Daniel B: mariage de Dr.D et 'rin est le sujet de l'heure Guy Foster: Dan: I kinda figured that one out... Dr. D.: I could read that, Daniel :-) rich-c: hate to mention it, Rich, but I thihnk you're the onoly one here now who doesn't have at least some French Daniel B: ;-) Pamela: il est le sujet de . . . comme on il dit "week"? rich-c: semaine Guy Foster: semana Dr. D.: semolina Dr. D.: <mmm> Pamela: merci - j'ai a oublie : ) Daniel B: c'est "semaine" pour "week" rich-c: et c'est "comment on dit" Daniel B: -or- "comment dit-on" Pamela: no, esta una semana en Espanol, Gui Dr. D.: You will not like "Spamalot!" then, they poke lots of fun at the French-type persons. Dr. D.: As well as the silly English bed-wetting types. Dr. D.: But Rin and I enjoyed the show last night. rich-c: I had the feeling they poked fun at everyone and everything Pamela: what do they pull the material from, Rich? Dr. D.: They do...gays...Jews...Las Vegas...Broadway...you name it. rich-c: long experience? they've been around forever Dr. D.: It is just a variation of "MP and the Holy Grail". Mrs. D.: 99% of it Dr. D.: Some bits removed, a few bits added. Pamela: ah Mrs. D.: don't forget the Finns My Love Dr. D.: The ending was nice..."we're not yet dead, we might as well be wed"...so they were. Dr. D.: Yes, the Finns are skewered quite well. Guy Foster: Dr. D: Do they do Americans? Dr. D.: Hmmm...I would guess not as Americans per se, no. Pamela: a very British production Dr. D.: Monty Python is pretty British Guy Foster: Dr. D: Y'know, you see lots of black comedians making fun of black people, etc.... rich-c: they want a Broadway run, and with Homeland Security the way it is these days, they at lest want to get into the country Mrs. D.: except that the Knights that say "Ni" break out into "Baby Got Back" Dr. D.: Yes I forgot that. Pamela: LOL Guy Foster: So making fun of Jews would make them get into the country... hmm. rich-c: the British are the ranking experts on skewering Americans Mrs. D.: no means they would have a successful show Dr. D.: If Mel Brookes can make fun of Nazis...why not? Daniel B: I'm programming with Pyhton at my job, and in the Python language FAQ it says : "Monty Python"... and I don't know what is Monty Python. Dr. D.: Brooks sorry Dr. D.: A British comedy ensemble, 1970s. Daniel B: I checked wikipedia for it rich-c: the original was called Monty Python's Flying Circus Dr. D.: If your English is not good, it would be very hard humor to understand, Daniel. rich-c: and in this case he means British humour, not English language Dr. D.: There are lots of puns, it can be very "literary" at times. Pamela: one of the reasons Russell loves it - we're a punny bunch Dr. D.: Also ability to understand various accents from the British isles. rich-c: in fact he likely does skewer Americans, but not in a language they understand Dr. D.: The best way to describe it is to watch it for yourself, Daniel. Daniel B: Unfortunatly, I don't have any Monty Python cassettes or dvd here. Dr. D.: But be warned, they make lots of fun of the French. Guy Foster: Dan: Blockbusters Dr. D.: Or Bittorrent :-S rich-c: the Quebecois are emphatically NOT French - and any who doubt it need only visit Paris to have it proven to them Guy Foster: We're as french, as the americans are british! Pamela: which is to say, not very : ) Guy Foster: Exacto. Daniel B: nice analogy... Pamela: besides, you're Canadians Dr. D.: Okay, if you can laugh at John Cleese as the French Knight at Grail Castle, then you can survive anything Python. rich-c: exactly - I understand that when Jean Beliveau visitied Paris, he spoke English because he got treated better Guy Foster: Rich: Or perhaps because they didn't understand him? Dr. D.: Hard to say, Guy :-) rich-c: possibly - an Outaois accent doesn't work too wekk in la Gaspesie Dr. D.: Fetchez la vache :-) Dr. D.: Erin brought home a Killer Rabbit puppet BTW Guy Foster: My French teacher from France, when he came to Canada in the late 60s was scared of speaking in French, in Quebec, so he would speak English. He didn't understand the french over here and just didn't feel comfortable. rich-c: get your own cow Pamela: why do you want a cow??? Dr. D.: It is very cuddly and scary too Dr. D.: It is a line from "Holy Grail" Dr. D.: Famous line Daniel B: ... Guy Foster: Quebec French uses a lot of "old" french words and expressions. Guy Foster: Words that in France haven't been used in hundreds of years. rich-c: well yes, but joual has a lot of franglais in it Guy Foster: Ex: Un Breuvage. Common word for a drink. Dr. D.: Guess we know what DVD to get Pam for Christmas, eh Rin? rich-c: I'll have one, but it isn't time yet ; - ) Guy Foster: In French, a Breuvage is a mystical potion brewed and simmered by a magician. Dr. D.: That aptly describes the brewer's art...next? Pamela: sounds like something Russell would love to have, Rich : ) Guy Foster: Yes, breuvage most likely has it's origins in the word brewing. rich-c: A magician named McAuslan? (local joke, Rich) Daniel B: ... Pamela: and darn it, now I have "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" running around in my head - aughhhhh Dr. D.: They use that song in "Spamalot!" Pamela: I know - I've been seeing the ads for weeks and that's in them rich-c: come over and get us to play our Tom Lehrer collection for you - that wil give you a new earworm Dr. D.: I have heard all his stuff, Richard. Dr. D.: It's been a while, but I heard them all in college. Pamela: I've got my own Lehrer on tape thank you - and was able to write out the lyrics for Vatican Rag to someone verbatim, not too long ago rich-c: we have a CD of all his stuff - every record he ever put out Dr. D.: He stopped for the same reason Spike Jones pretty much did: modern events (or pop music in Spike's case) got more outrageous than any parody he could think of. rich-c: now what I want is that DVD set of every Ginger Rogers/Fred Astaire movie ever made Guy Foster: As Dr. D pointed out.... Bittorrent? Dr. D.: hehe rich-c: I suspect it's still within copyright, Guy Guy Foster: Yep, that's the whole point of bittorrent. rich-c: besides, Spike Jones parodied classics mostly, not contemporary Pamela: brb - saying goodnight to Russell - who says hi, by the way Dr. D.: He did plenty of pop music of the late 40s and early 50s... Dr. D.: Nite Russell. rich-c: say Hi right back to him, s.v.p. Guy Foster: svp? silly vulgar punk? Dr. D.: "The Glow Worm" skewers Nelson Eddy and Jeannette MacDonald... rich-c: things like "Glowworm" and Red Wing" far predate that Dr. D.: "You Always Hurt The One You Love" is a parody of The Inkspots Pamela: hey Erin, still awake? Dr. D.: Barely. Dr. D.: It is about time for the newlyweds to sign off. Mrs. D.: soon yes Pamela: just checkin' Dr. D.: Still have to finish packing up stuff. rich-c: well, wait a little more and see if the Slopsemas and Ron turn up Dr. D.: I wish they would... Pamela: Rin, don't forget I owe you some batteries and $.50 Daniel B: interresting... based on wikipedia, 4% of the modern english origine is unknow Dr. D.: People just made up stuff as they went along, says Erin. Mrs. D.: okay Mrs. D.: I make up words all the time rich-c: I would qualofy that figure a lot, Daniel - it should be both higher and lower Pamela: Erin has her own language : ) Mrs. D.: ex. "soapy-dishy-thing" Guy Foster: Yup, lots of words were made up... ever hear of the word: supercalifraglisticexpialidocious? Dr. D.: hehe Mrs. D.: yep Daniel B: marry puppin Pamela: from Mary Poppins Guy Foster: yupy up Daniel B: poppin Guy Foster: Poppins no? Dr. D.: Stupid California Mystic Expert Halitosis Pamela: super calloused fragile mystic plagued with halitosis rich-c: seems I recall hearing it long before that - but them when was the book "Mary Poppins" published? Daniel B: ... well, yes, with 's Guy Foster: haha, never heard of those ones. Mrs. D.: personal favourite is "dealy" Dr. D.: Yes, it is Rin's favourite noun Pamela: what's scary is, I'm starting to use your language too : ) Mrs. D.: it's catchy Dr. D.: Rin is a linguistic terrorist Pamela: but you'll notice it's a soapy dishy thingy, not a dealy : ) Mrs. D.: I prefer artist Dr. D.: artiste Dr. D.: I make up epithets instead of swearing Pamela: and for a while there, I was starting to sound like a Chicagoan, and then like the girls over the weekend. Apparently I pick up accents and inflections really easily Dr. D.: That way nobody but me knows what I really mean. Pamela: use troglodyte - works for me most of the time : ) Dr. D.: Whenever I roomed with Dale Wick at ADAMcon, I would start to say some vowels like him. rich-c: yes, it;s common among the younger folk, but it's a tendency that fades with age, Pam Dr. D.: My current favorite is "flatulent dogweasel" Pamela: that works too Pamela: Russell's favourite is Pamela: "mouseketeer" Dr. D.: Bad male driver is "Nimrod"...if it's female, it's "Nimrodia" (the "o" becomes long) Pamela: apparently it hasn't faded with me, Dad - a couple of hours in a room with Marilyn and I sound just like her rich-c: well, her accent is still more modified Canadian than Connecticut rich-c: but then, there is still some New Jersey buried deep in my accent, too Pamela: it's not her accent per se, it's the way she phrases things and her conversational emphasis rich-c: right - she has a very personal style that way Pamela: but by the time we left Chicago, I was definitely picking up the accent - the girl at the rental counter at Avis noticed it rich-c: geez - guess we got you out just in time!
moved to room Meeting Place Pamela: I think so : )
changed username to Guy B. Guy Foster: Hey Guy B! Pamela: greetings, Guy! Mrs. D.: hi Guy rich-c: hello Guy, we were just discussing Chicago accents Guy B.: Greetings!!!! Guy B.: Hi Erin Daniel B: hi Guy Guy B.: You were? rich-c: yes - Pamela was complaining they're catching Pamela: not a complaint, just a comment Pamela: apparently I catch them well : ) Guy B.: Usually are rich-c: so how's the construction coming along on I-80? Pamela: Guy, I meant to ask you - you never told us what the S in GSB stands for Pamela: well, that was a conversation stopper rich-c: yours or mine? Pamela: mine, apparently Dr. D.: Secret Guy B.: The S is short for my middle name which is Steven. Guy Foster: Guy Socrates Bono? Pamela: thank you - I asked when I saw your licence plate, but I don't think you heard me - we were at Bakers Square at the time rich-c: oh, does Guy have a vanity plate too? Pamela: and by the way Rich, your new licence plate is a big hit with everyone Pamela: yes, it's GSB 83 Guy Foster: Why 83? Dr. D.: It was Rin's birthday present, I didn't think BMV would mail me the plates so fast. Dr. D.: I actually had them before Rin arrived in Cleveland...it was 5 calendar days from the order. Guy Foster: You guys are lucky, being able to choose your plates, we don't have the luxury of doing that in Quebec. Pamela: both Joanne Morencie and Joan had to stop and take a picture : ) Pamela: wow! rich-c: you can't order vanity plates there? Dr. D.: Glad nobody soaped the car or let air out of the tires. Guy Foster: Rich: Nope, not in Quebec. If we could, I would have years ago!!! Pamela: there are some restrictions on them Guy Dr. D.: For those wondering, my new Ohio license plate says "RICH RIN" Guy Foster: Dr. D: Cute! rich-c: it's OK, GF, "Hang Bourassa" wouldn't fit anyway Pamela: LOL Guy Foster: Rich: Sorry Rich, you probably have more interest in Quebec politics that I do... Dr. D.: Wouldn't it be something like "Suspendere" or "Dependere"? Pamela: maybe we should get Erin Ontario plates that say Rin n Rich Dr. D.: Too many letters probably. Dr. D.: Ohio gives only 7. rich-c: now, we can have up to 8 now Pamela: 8 letters, but not enough spaces Dr. D.: When she gets a car here, it will be "RIN RICH" Daniel B: I'm sorry but I really have to go now... talk to you next week... good night! rich-c: OK, replace the n with a crwn and I believe it flies Pamela: good night, Daniel Dr. D.: Bye Daniel. Guy B.: No, the plate isn't a vanity, but the state thinks I should pay more for having the 3 initials. 73 was the year I got my driver's license. Guy Foster: Daniel: What's the hurry? Mrs. D.: provided no one else has it :-) rich-c: bonsoir, Daniel - a l prochaine Dr. D.: I doubt anyone will have it My Love. Guy Foster: Guy B: Holy! 73 was the year I was a few months old. :) Guy B.: Bye Daniel Pamela: yeah, that works Dad Daniel B: aurevoir! Daniel B: * poof *
Daniel B left chat session rich-c: 73 is the yer of the licence plates on my Meteor - they are original Pamela: Guy, you're not that much older than I am - how old were you when you got your licence? Guy B.: 16 Mrs. D.: well....this is Rich's last night here so I think it's time we say good night Pamela: born in 57 then Guy B.: He's up there with you Erin? Guy B.: Yep Guy Foster: Holy, you mean to tell me you're 49, Guy? I would have never guessed it. Man you guys know how to keep looking young, it's awesome! First Dr. D, then you... Pamela: so, you have eight years on me - didn't think it was that much rich-c: well, last night for a while - but we understand so gooodnight both Mrs. D.: yeah, came for a couple extra days Guy B.: In 4 months Guy Dr. D.: Since I will be lucky to see her in a month :-( Pamela: Rich, think you'll be up for Labour Day? Guy Foster: Well, hope to look as young when I'm hovering my fifties... Dr. D.: Have to see, too soon to tell. Dr. D.: I am 43, 44 in November. Dr. D.: Hair is going white. Mrs. D.: (PRIVATE) love you Pamela: if so, then invitation is open for dinner at the trailer over the labour day weekend Pamela: (PRIVATE) love you too - goodnight! Dr. D.: Rin thinks I look like James Bond in my tuxedo, but she is biased :-) Pamela: safe trip, Rich - good night
(007 music plays in the background) rich-c: have to look at my pictures and see Dr. D.: Nite Pam, nite Richard, Guy B and F Pamela: only a little - I think you cut a dashing figure too Mrs. D.: nite all!
Mrs. D. left chat session Guy Foster: G'night Dr. D Dr. D.: If the Slopsemas show up or Ron, sorry we missed 'em...but we did mail the list... Dr. D.: <poof> Guy B.: Nite Erin
Dr. D. left chat session Pamela: heck, Russell is 46 in November Guy B.: And Dr. D Guy Foster: Goodnight Erin, we want to see pics BTW of the wedding! Guy Foster: Too late. Guy B.: I wonder where is Bob tonight? Pamela: It's not my age that freaks me out, it's his Pamela: we'll make sure pictures get posted Gui, don't worry Guy Foster: Cool! Guy B.: Some of my friends think I'm in my 30's. Pamela: since I'm pretty sure that every person at the wedding had a camera, that shouldn't be an issue : ) Guy Foster: Yeah, I thought you were in your 30s Guy, about my age, a bit older maybe, like 4-5 years older. rich-c: where to you plan to post them? Pamela: probably on Rich's site Dad rich-c: or perhaps Meeka's? rich-c: or even this one? Guy Foster: or as an attachement to the mailing list? Pamela: no, no attachments - some people frown on them Guy Foster: your dad? :) rich-c: no, we get too much flak from the dialup users - those files are big Guy Foster: dialup = way of the dinosaurs. Pamela: to which I say pbbbbttt - i'm on dialup rich-c: you can say that now that Daniel has left .... but Pam's still on Guy Foster: I have a friend on dialup and am trying so hard to get him to switch, he simply refuses!!! It's driving me crazy. Guy Foster: He downloads porn all night on dialup. I keep on telling him how more productive he could be with DSL, but refuses to listen to the voice of reason. Oh well. rich-c: depends on what he does with his computer - for some, dialup is adequate Pamela: we will not get DSL until a) we can afford it and b) we get our phone lines fixed, something I have to have a chat with Ma Bell about one of these days rich-c: porn being mostly graphics, I guess finding his line clear is not easy to do Guy Foster: Nope, his line is always busy, and he downloads 24/7, makes no sense for him to be on dialup. He's just scared of change, and doesn't want to change because DSL is unknown to him. rich-c: drag him over to your place, and let him watch you download a porno movie - he'll see Guy B.: I just upgraded my DSL to a faster speed and for a special price for a year. Guy Foster: I've done that, he still refuses. Pamela: hello, am I here? Could we perhaps find another subject? Guy Foster: OK, we can talk about porn. Guy Foster: The negative effects on society. Pamela: oh, don't get me started : ) rich-c: they exist? Guy Foster: Hey, isn't the star of Deep Throat, Linda Loveless, living in Ontario now? Pamela: this is what I get for hanging out in a room full of testosterone : ) Guy Foster: That's what I heard a few years ago... Pamela: Linda Lovelace Guy Foster: Yeah, that's it... see, you know more about classic porn that I do!!! rich-c: the sociological studies I have seen suggest that porn has socially positive effects Pamela: depends on the society Pamela: just ask the religious right in the US rich-c: not necessarily; porn is an individual thing as is the response Guy Foster: Porn is classified over 18, and it should stay that way. To have it available to 13 yrs olds, is not a good thing. Of course, if I was a 13 yrs old, I'd beg to differ. rich-c: yes, I'm sure they're as ignorant ablut that as about everything else rich-c: quite, we talk about such things in the context of an adult society Guy Foster: unfortunately, it spills over in the child society via the Internet. Pamela: who are you kidding about availability - ask any male whose father had it around when they first found it Guy Foster: All my friends found out about porn through their fathers stack of hustlers and playboy. Pamela: exactly my point rich-c: those aren't porn Guy Foster: softcore Pamela: Playboy, maybe not - but I disagree re: Hustler rich-c: pushes the definition excessively, in my view Guy Foster: Hustler is a bit more hardcore than Playboy, but not by much. rich-c: brb - need my beer Guy Foster: Rich: Haha, good man! I'd drink too if I had a cold one lying around. Guy Foster: I do have a freezie though in the fridge. :) Pamela: I think in order of "harmlessness" for lack of a better description, it would be Playboy, Penthouse then Hustler, to name the "big three". Guy Foster: in my youth when we traded porn mags, those 3 weren't really classified as "hot" items to trade. Pamela: I probably have some ancient Guinness around somewhere rich-c: oh, I have my Biere Noire on ice Guy Foster: Guiness is too bitter, can't drink that beer. Pamela: they're the most well known, but are only the tip of the iceberg as far as what's available out there Guy Foster: Oh yeah, you got some underground mags which make Playboy and Hustler look like children's coloring books. Pamela: it's Russell's and it's at least two years old. Probably time to throw it out, come to think of it. Probably when we switch fridges this weekend. Pamela: the beer that is : ) rich-c: right - teh McAusl;ans is still a genuine stout, but the chocolate and coffe notes show more clerly Guy Foster: I'm fond of Pilsners and Red beers. rich-c: I tend to view those as sort of better-tasting soda pop Guy Foster: yup, exactly what I was thinking! ;) Pamela: I think you'll find that the attitude towards pornography varies greatly by demographic - dependent upon age and gender Guy Foster: Pam: All boys love it. rich-c: the LCBO is offering Dragon Stout from Jamaica this month and it is said to be terrific rich-c: I plan to sample me a six-pack Guy Foster: holy, Dragon Stout? Never heard of it, but if it's a stout, I probably won't like it. Guy Foster: A man who likes his beer and not afraid to try new ones, awesome. rich-c: stout is an acquired taste, and appeals mostly to the older dempographic Pamela: I know that, Guy - but my point is that the older one gets and the more life experience one has, the less threatening it becomes to people Guy Foster: I'd love to stay and chat, but I have to pick up Sandra in like 3 minutes, whoops, gotta go!!! Pamela: tell her hi, Gui - goodnight! rich-c: actually teh key is that it is fantasy, and the social effect can be to suppress the urge to act out the fantasy rich-c: OK Guy, just get here earlier next week! ;-) rich-c: and our best to Sandra too Pamela: not arguing that, Dad. Pamela: however, I can't effectively discuss this here - I don't type fast enough rich-c: oddly enough, when teh cops catch a sex offender, they always lcaim to have found porn in his possession Pamela: the question becomes, what kind? rich-c: but it's unlikely; if he had it he likely would not have offended Guy B.: Bye Guy rich-c: with adults, so to speak anything goes (short of snuff films and such) Pamela: remember that for a sex offender, it's not about sex - it's about power Guy B.: Well, I think I'm going to go myself. I'll see you all next week. Pamela: well shucks, Guy Pamela: If you must : ( rich-c: OK Guy - do get us an update on Chicago roads, if you can Guy B.: Been a long day with overtime at work. Have to work the next two Saturdays. Pamela: (PRIVATE) hugs to you ( and Annie too) Guy B.: I know I-80-94 construction will be through November. rich-c: well, just so you keep Wednesdays clear ;-) Guy B.: (PRIVATE) Me too. Pamela: yes, was a long day for me too. Take care and have a good week Guy B.: Poof
Guy B. left chat session Pamela: well Papa, it looks like I'm headed to the kitchen to do some dishes rich-c: which sort of cuts down on the crowd rich-c: OK, it's been a busy day, so might as well shut down Pamela: okay. Will see you sometime soon to trade video tape Pamela: and will try to call tomorrow night if that works for you rich-c: OUCH! I got home to find I didn't have the game - 3 hours of boxing instead Pamela: oops - oh well, don't worry about it Pamela: we can discuss tomorrow night rich-c: I thought the listings said the CBC had the second half of Friday, but apparently not, and I didn't catch it rich-c: anyway do call and we'll talk Pamela: okay. Have a good one - sleep tight! rich-c: same backatcha - night! Pamela: g'nite Daddy Pamela: kerpoof
