Snippets of recent IMs and recent conversations:
MH: here's a general question for you, an early adopter:
what do i not have that i should look into aside from a cost effective sound and video server for the whole house
MH: Think about it.
RG: Umm. Photo printer?
MH: mmm - i can print photo's on my printer, but don't know if it is good enough. I think the answer is: (dramtic pause) survival kits, a fail-safe exit route, rally points, ingot stashes, and property in wyoming or panama to retreat to when the apocalypse hits
RG: your problem would be getting out... in LA there aren't so many options and if the shit was really going down it would be hard to get out
MH: already have that covered, my friend
and so on
RG: You know how I wasn't supposed to be cutting the baby's hair... well I've been cutting it... just little trims here and there and you haven't noticed...
Jenn: You've been cutting his hair behind my back!
RG: Just around the edges where's it's in danger of mulleting out.
Jenn:So why are you telling me this?
RG: Well... I slipped with the clippers... he moved his head, and well, now it pretty much looks like he's prepared for a lobotomy. But you know, it will grow back fast...and he has lots of hats. He looks great in hats.
and so on
RG: My problem is that I don't have a graduated sense of the world. I either love something or I hate it, it's binary. Cheese-Makes me want to die. Cats-Grr. Hate is too poor a word. White brick buildings make me want to throw myself in the East River.
TR: Aren't you being a little dramatic. Are you saying you have a strong opinion on everything. How about... graph paper.
RG: I LOVE graph paper!
TR:The Manhattan bridge.
RG: Bleah. Hate it. Functional and uninspired.
TR: So there's nothing that you say, "well that was just ok."
RG: You're not understanding... it's not like an opinion with me it just is. White or black.
TR: That's incredibly obnoxious.
RG: I know. I hate this about myself.
and so on
