Okay, I've heard people complain about reading IM conversations, so if that's you, don't bother .


Oh, man, Pom Pom. I just tried to have a conversation with Mitchell via Yahoo Messenger, only it was all fucked up. Every time I wrote something, it came to Mitchell as "3". Like, here's how the conversation looked to HIM:

geniusscientist:3
kohmu:of clubs
kohmu:am i right?
geniusscientist:3
kohmu:blind mice
kohmu:see how they run, right?
geniusscientist:3
geniusscientist:3
kohmu:ok, ok...
kohmu:3...
kohmu:3pm?
kohmu:something is happening at 3pm, right?
geniusscientist:3
kohmu:sweet!
kohmu:you just got three ounces!
geniusscientist:3
geniusscientist:3
kohmu:HINT.
geniusscientist:3
kohmu:i'll kill you if this means nothing.
kohmu:4
kohmu:now you. "5"
kohmu:go ahead...
geniusscientist:3
geniusscientist:3
kohmu:um...
kohmu:i'm stuck.


Whereas, here's how it looked to ME:

mitchell:of clubs
mitchell:am i right?
geniusscientist:wait, what?
mitchell:blind mice
mitchell:see how they run, right?
geniusscientist:you're crazy
geniusscientist:i have no idear what you're talking about
mitchell:ok, ok...
mitchell:3...
mitchell:3pm?
mitchell:something is happening at 3pm, right?
geniusscientist:not that i know of
mitchell:sweet!
mitchell:you just got three ounces!
geniusscientist:WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT
geniusscientist:dude
mitchell:HINT.
geniusscientist:color me confused
mitchell:i'll kill you if this means nothing.
mitchell:4
mitchell:now you. "5"
mitchell:go ahead...
geniusscientist:5
geniusscientist:i said five
mitchell:um...
mitchell:i'm stuck.

So then I called to ask him what the fuck he was talking about, and we figured out what was happening (though not why, of course). And when we tried again, apparently it still wasn't working.

mitchell:let's see if '3' still comes up... go.
geniusscientist:okay, going
mitchell:wow. it still is.
mitchell:SO MUCH FOR THIS THIS SUCKY PROGRAM.
geniusscientist:I KNOW, RIGHT?
geniusscientist:man
geniusscientist:even though i know you can't read this . . .
geniusscientist:it just makes it funnier
mitchell:ok, well that's great. this communication ends now.
geniusscientist:we should journal this!
geniusscientist:3! 3! 3!
mitchell:NO MORE 3'S!!!!!!!!!!!
geniusscientist: yo, transcribe this for me again!
mitchell:3
geniusscientist:you can't hear me!
mitchell:3
mitchell:3
mitchell:3
mitchell:3
mitchell:3
geniusscientist:i'm assuming you're kidding
mitchell:please. why are you still writing me via IM?
geniusscientist:i can't help it
mitchell:no! no more!
geniusscientist:just one more! i mean three!
Yahoo! Messenger: kohmu has logged out. (12/4/01 at 9:26 AM)
