A Little Morning Conversation...

Backstory: I Skype with 7 other women writer friends, and we're in the process of forming a joint website. One of them (Annie) posted a recording of some readings she had done....

[9:44:23 AM] Janie: Hearing her voice changes how I see all I've read from her.
[9:44:32 AM] Sarah: Me too.
[9:44:38 AM] Sarah: Raine hasn't heard it. She doesn't haz speakers.
[9:44:40 AM] Janie: We can use that service where you can record it.
[9:44:41 AM] Lorraine: We could charge more for Annie.
[9:44:41 AM] Janie: Let me find that.
[9:44:58 AM] Janie: No speakers?
[9:45:05 AM] Janie: Don't you have a headset you can plug in?
[9:45:11 AM] Lorraine: I disconnected them to move the computer, then never moved the computer. Haven't hooked them back up.
[9:45:21 AM] Lorraine: Headset?
[9:45:26 AM] Lorraine: Where's the hole?
[9:45:26 AM] Janie: It should be there.
[9:45:35 AM] Sarah: My service would be for people who miss their wives... "no... no... don't touch me!"
[9:45:35 AM] Janie: Desktop?
[9:45:41 AM] Janie: Near the other holes.
[9:45:44 AM] Janie: Little round thing.
[9:45:44 AM] Lorraine: I'll wait till someone wakes up.
[9:45:55 AM] Janie: Get on your knees then.
[9:45:55 AM] Sarah: Is this dirty talk?
[9:46:00 AM] Lorraine: My eyes can't see the hole.
[9:46:05 AM] Lorraine: I could feel around
[9:46:09 AM] Lorraine: But it's dusty.
[9:46:10 AM] Sarah: Stop!
[9:46:13 AM] Janie: Well get your man on his knees to find the hole.
[9:46:13 AM] Sarah: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
[9:46:19 AM] Lorraine: He's getting his eyes checked.
[9:46:19 AM] Lorraine: He can't see the hole either.
[9:46:31 AM] Sarah: Oh god
[9:46:35 AM] Janie: Well I guess it will just have to be one of the young ones.
[9:46:38 AM] Lorraine: I am laughing so hard right now.
[9:46:50 AM] Janie: You could get one of those lighted magnifying glasses on the swing arm.
[9:46:51 AM] Sarah: Shit... me too!
[9:47:01 AM] Lorraine: I have a headlamp that straps on my head.
[9:47:05 AM] Janie: There ya go!
[9:47:09 AM] Janie: And some reading glasses
[9:47:12 AM] Janie: And you are good to go.
[9:47:14 AM] Lorraine: It's a look.
[9:47:20 AM] Janie: I'm sure
[9:47:28 AM] Lorraine: Please tell me we can publish this convo somewhere.

See? This is what happens when women get together. They can't help it. Imagine if alcohol was introduced.

And you scolded us earlier...

Pot, meet the kettle.

My next suggestion would have been to get your Webgod on his knees, but I figured you've already brought him to his knees too many times.

Dear God. If this is any insight as to what's likely to happen on your web site I can pretty much assure you that you won't lack for members.

Get it?

This is killing me (not just wounding, KILLING me!!) to leave it at that.

LOL...reminds me of a conversation I had with my father about trailer hitches when I had to ask him the "size of his balls"
Who knew they came in more than one?

You should hear us when we sit at our computers and chat with a glass of wine in hand...

Way too many comments spring to mind... showing unusual and remarkable restraint by avoiding making some really obvious retort. Tonge and fingers bleeding profusely.

If we're sharing, I can do better than this. (poolparty)

For anyone who doesn't Skype, that (poolparty) will produce a little cartoon of a guy bouncing up and down while wearing an inflatable pool ring. It's hysterical.

And yeah, Jodi is one of us. Guess she was feeling left out.
