RIP, Stevie Ray Vaughan / La Bombe / Fidela's mass email update / Prayers / various quirky quizzes

RIP, Stevie Ray Vaughan: October 3, 1954-August 27, 1990 (I listened to the SRV show on ROCK 101's Legends of Classic Rock show last week... the same one Jon and I listened to years ago when we were driving around trying to find the Earls restaurant that Elaine's birthday party was in... I should email Elaine to wish her a happy birthday tomorrow, too!) I'll do Chris W.'s Wikipedia trick for a link: Information on Stevie Ray Vaughan. (love that dude, because we rock no matter when / what we post!)

I will finish tagging March entries today after I go through my friendsfriends pages... I've been a slacker lately on this project, and I think that's doable. =/
(I don't think I'll finish before I talk to Corey, though... we were both too sleepy to say much last night when I got home, other than a bunch of his cursing designed to get a good reaction out of me :P

All my tags.

After reading through some of my old journals, I now remember a nickname Eric had for me back in the day: La Bombe. Heh, it has mostly to do with Big Sugar's Butterball and booty / production jokes. :D

Ooh, and Fidela just sent a mass email to a bunch of her friends... lovely! :D


Before I lay me down to sleep,
I pray for a man, who's not a creep,
One who's handsome, smart and strong
One who loves to listen long,
One who thinks before he speaks,
One who'll call, not wait for weeks.
I pray he's gainfully employed,
When I spend his cash, won't be annoyed.
Pulls out my chair and opens my door,
Massages my back and begs to do more.
Oh! Send me a man who'll make love to my mind,
Knows what to answer to "how big is my behind?"
I pray that this man will love me to no end,
And always be my very best friend.


I pray for a deaf-mute nymphomaniac with huge boobs who owns a liquor store and a bass boat. This doesn't rhyme and I don't give a shit.

Apparently, I'm a summer goth Redcap changeling Glorificus Bloody Mary with a soundtrack to her life... interesting!

You scored as Summer. You're summer! You're popular in two ways: you got lotsa friends, and most people prefer summer to any other season! Cool, isn't it?









what season are you? (autumn, summer, winter or spring?)
created with

Redcap. You are the stuff of nightmares and you
know it. It's all well and good when the sidhe
are playing there games, but you are the
driving force behind any real action taking
place. You crave action just about as much as
you crave food. It's a constant hunger that
gnaws away at the very edge of your soul, not
that you care too much about all that pansy
stuff. You do what you have to do, and don't
look back.

88 Lines about 44 Monarchs and a Lord Protector

Hahahahaha! This is the best thing I've read today! Royalty, here we come! :D

Apparently, there's a song out there called 88 Lines About 44 Women. Someone linked to a parody version of that. The parody version just happens to be about one of my interests: royalty! (yes, I should read more about royalty... but that'll come in time, hahaha) I'll link to the parody version, but also have it down for reference. :D

Link to parody version

88 Lines about 44 Monarchs and a Lord Protector

Edward the Confessor built the Abbey and healed scrofula
Harold fought at Hastings, got an arrow through the macula
William came from Normandy and gave the Saxon kings the boot
William Rufus went out hunting, died 'cause someone couldn't shoot

Henry First reformed the treasury (though his peers did not applaud)

John Lackland signed the Magna Carta, got in trouble with the Church

Henry Sixth was a good guy, but nonetheless kind of a dork
Edward Fourth reclaimed the crown and gave it to the House of York
Edward Fifth was just a kid when he was smothered in his sleep

Mary was traditional and wanted back the Latin Mass
Elizabeth, the Virgin Queen, faced the Armada, kicked some ass
James the First authorized the Bible, also had Guy Fawkes dispatched

Uh-uh, not Charles.

Cromwell ran the Interregnum and dissolved the Parliament
Charles the Second got restored when they told Cromwell to get bent
James the Second was a Catholic -- Parliament didn't like that much
William Third and Mary Second then took over (double Dutch!)

Anne witnessed the Act of Union, wouldn't make the Pretender heir
George the First of Hanover didn't speak English, didn't care
George the Second whupped Prince Charlie, kept his court with Caroline

Edward the Eighth was never crowned, with Mrs. Simpson ran away
George the Sixth stayed at home although the place was getting blitzed
Elizabeth Two is Queen today, and so with her we end this list

"Sarne Dragon!", "Dil-Dil," and other voice tags / obnoxious people / forgetting a name four times

Eric picked me up at 7:05 Chinese time, which really meant 7:20... that was fine, since I was finishing up my previous entry. It was good timing, because he pulled up as soon as I was within sight of the parking lot! As soon as I got in the car, he activated the Parisienne fart lever while simultaneously denying its existence... he bugs me so much, but I put up with it since he's golden. :D He'd gone to Dawn's second farewell thing... as long as we each made it to one of them, haha. (she's in Hong Kong now) I told him how my week had been, which is always a good thing with friends who understand!

I went to the 7-11 to get some candy beforehand, but then there was this lady who insisted on being served before me even though I was CLEARLY in line IN FRONT of her! But since I didn't want to make waves, I let it go. (that's where some of my problems come from, I swear...) At church, Andy and Randal kinda started a discussion on whether Pope Benedict was in fact the Anti-Christ. I've heard that sorta thing myself, but the whole talk was a non-starter since it didn't get very far! When we got downstairs, I gave Eric and Vivian their gifts a couple weeks early. (I know Eric will still be here on his birthday and he's not going anywhere, but I might as well do it before I space it and forget like I did with Eric T.!) Turns out Vivian isn't flying out for France on my birthday anymore, but three days earlier.. so much for birthday luck, haha. Jon joked that her farewell dinner would be Pho, and the dessert would be Bon's... ooh, the grease and MSG would NOT be good! ("it oils the throat and larynx before we lead worship on Sundays, haha!")

Jackie, Dylan, Eric, Sheena, and Jon were variously playing the guitar / the drums / singing. We all had some chocolate cake... this girl Teresa took a whole plate home! She also forgot Dylan's name FOUR times tonight! Jon was experimenting / listening to the voice tags on Nathan's cell phone: "white Eric!" / "Chinese Eric!" / "Sarne Dragon!" (me... I still remember when he put it in, since we were eating Sunday lunch at the Granville Island Sammy J. Peppers with Danielle and Eric M.) He put Dylan's phone number in, and came up with "Dil-Dil" for Dylan... we didn't much get into how it sounded like something else, haha. Dylan didn't want his name dragged through the gutter, which is understandable. Some other possibilities were "Dilly," "P. Dilly" (we decided the "P" would stand for "Pho," which should be an honor... "Puff" was NOT original enough!), "Dill Pickle," and "Dilly Bar" like the stuff they have at Dairy Queen.

Vivian, Karen, Jon, Dylan, and I got to talking about certain obnoxious / cocky PNE co-workers of Vivian's... man, some people can be so annoying! Jon says the collectors got kicked out of a conference room since the night collectors were too messy last year: Vivian would kill to have HIS job, where he can read / play poker / chat for the majority of the time! Most of Jon's co-workers talk about cars, chicks, or sports... he doesn't get the car-related conversations about certain features. In fact, he's mostly like "Stop talking so I can read in peace!" (not out loud though, haha) Steph and Cindy were talking about Steph's temp job, which ends Wednesday: she likes the work, but it does make it hard to look for a real job like Mom's always bugging her to do! (Steph and Cindy are hanging out at Steveston next Friday: Timothy's frozen yogurt will be good, even if white Megan and Trish didn't feel like it earlier!) We talked about glasses, prescription, glasses breaking in a most unfixable part, Port Moody, Pearle Vision at Oakridge, etc.

Afterwards, Jon was half-joking around about beer / keg parties at Steamworks, even if Eric DID leave an hour earlier than the rest of us! (we stayed till 11:30!) We agreed multiculturalism at our church is a good thing... there were so many white people on Sunday by comparison, haha. (Megan, Trish, Vania's cousins, etc.) Reminds me of Winnie, Connie, and Jenny's German-Chinese cousin Felina and her friend Kirsten back in 2000, haha. After we dropped Cindy off at home, I mentioned that I'd seen John Jugovic on the bus. My brother laughed, and my sister wondered what he was doing nowadays (I don't know, I didn't talk to him!)... she also remarked, "You can't be TOPLESS on the bus... can you?!" Probably not, but he did it anyhow! Steph also thinks that being a lifetime subscriber to LJ (her term for a permanent account) is just too weird, and wonders how I keep up with everything. (she can see one or two journal sites, but not any more than that!) I recommended the blueberry mojitos, and Jon wondered how I had so much bling to spend on myself, haha. Contrary to what they believe, I do my best to save money. :D

Apparently, my sister thinks I shouldn't be so chicken and just email Mom myself... eh, I'm not ready for that yet! No, I'm not going to print it out: I don't have a printer, and I sent the email off to Jon's account a long time ago anyhow! According to them, my mom still wants to know if I'm free for Sunday lunch. I said fine as long as they'd be there, haha. (I need FOILS! :P) I also nearly destroyed her Minnie Mouse ornament air freshener thing by putting a bunch of books on it, but it was salvaged... hahaha, yay for that!

John Jugovic, blueberry mojitos, and more!

Right after that last post, I caught the next bus to get some money from the bank. I saw John Jugovic on the bus, of all people. He was topless and reading the Georgia Straight. HAHAHAHAHAHA, I remember the last time I saw him on the bus.. it was Jan. 2, 2004 when Jon / Steph / Melissa and I were taking the bus to Stepho's so we could eat HUGE platters of Greek food. He was with someone I knew from my Seaport days (Salman)... man, that was an interesting overheard conversation about fat girls in Alberta and thin girls in clubs! (of course, Salman recognized me...) John used to deliver the Richmond Review / the Richmond News back in the days when we all did newspaper routes, and my mom always distrusted him for some reason, especially when he got major complaints! There was this time when he wanted to use the phone, and my mom wanted us to keep an eye on him.. of course we did. He quit those routes, and soon I was taking them over... bad history there, haha. There was the time when I called to my brother because I wanted him to do something, and of course John thought I meant HIM! (haha, it happens... little Ian's dad also had one of those "do you mean ME?!" moments recently on the church steps into the basement, haha)

After that, I went to Milestones to have a portobello mushroom chicken dinner plus a blueberry mojito. (Darren's been after me to have that for about two weeks, haha) I heard Christina Aguilera's What A Girl Wants while there... bleh! :P Yes, I've now been to Milestones twice in a week.. once on Saturday with Eric H. / Eric M. / Anthony, and once just now. That doesn't compare to the times I've had steak twice in a week (Cactus Club / Milestones in December), the times I went to different McDonalds establishments twice in a day when I was a kid, or the time I went to Boston Pizza twice in a day when I was there for lunch and again after seeing the Passion of the Christ with Nathan / Eric H. / Des Chan in March 2004! Then I went to London Drugs to buy a postcard to send to Charlotte sometime, some Nestlé Toll House cookie dough / brownie chunks ice cream, and a lime green tea Snapple. (Corey seems to think I'll like them, and I do!) I forgot to get some candy for Bible Study, but I can do that at the 7-11. :D

Now, all this girl wants is to be out of here! (I'll pay Karen, Eric M., and Jon back their money for guides, pudding bubble tea at Dragon Ball, and movie tickets at Silvercity... and give someone back her shirt :P)

Moving on up, Friday Five, 20 songs parents hate, RIAA albums, 162 movies, US Citizenship, Fortunes

Eric's just asked me what David Fellowship is doing the first week of September: a welcome for all the new people! (Eric M., Alan, Phil, Edwin, Nathan, Jen, Erin, Eunice, Eddie... Nathan will no longer be the David Marr of his generation since he stayed in Daniel Fellowship till he was 25, haha) If he contacts anyone about the fact he / they're all going up, it should be Lesley. Reminds me, I should tell Randal I'm coming to that dinner or whatever it is they're planning... I read the email really quickly, so didn't quite get the contents, haha.

Now it's time to get to the bank before it closes... I owe various people MONEY, haha. I like to pay off my debts / bills ASAP. ;)

Friday Five

1. List five people and a song that reminds you of them or that you think best describes them (list the person's name, the song title, and the song's artist).

A. Bon Jovi's Always reminds me of my Australian friend Jay (the J Man) because they're his favorite artist.
B. Big Sugar's Butterball reminds me of Eric M., since he always sings that to bug me. :D
C. AC/DC's Thunderstruck reminds me of my old friend Elizabeth, since she LOVED this song to NO END.
D. Kim Stockwood's Jerk describes Yazmine's friendship-ending behavior perfectly. (over 50 cents?! that girl was DELUSIONAL, I tell ya!)
E. Tom Cochrane's Life Is A Highway reminds me of Adam Remsen, my old Memphis friend. There's a line that references both Memphis and Vancouver. :D

2. What would your life's soundtrack be?

Appropriate music for the angsty moments and such, like Everclear / Children of Bodom / Cradle of Filth. For the good moments, I'd have to say anything by Matthew Good (Band). (note to self: play the ApologetiX when Palmer comes over next... if he wants to take weird digicam pictures, I can certainly do that!)

3. Which would you prefer: to live somewhere that is hot, or to live somewhere that is cold year-round? Why?

Somewhere that's hot, because I can't take the cold too well... and Vancouver's like the most temperate place ever! o_O

4. Suppose you had twins, a boy and a girl. What names would you give and why?

Well, at least I know how NOT to name twins! (rhyming names, names that start with the same initial, etc.) Probably Sebastian / Tatiana... or if that's too posh, James (Jamie?) / Gloria. (I have a lot of other names on reserve too, haha)

5. What's a quote / lyric that describes you right now?

Abandon all hope, ye who enter here, Dante Aligheri's Divine Comedy

Friday plans and browser issues / classic leading men / classic dames / I've been on the Internet!

Last night, I called my brother on Nate's cell phone to figure out plans for tomorrow. He'll be busing it from the PNE / hanging around, and my sister will be busing it from some office party: we advised her to drink some booze since the company's paying for it, haha. It was kinda noisy in the background since they were driving Chris and Isabel home from worship practice / dinner or something. He got my email, and he said it was nice to see my responses to the points he brought up. I actually just sent him another email based on the advice that Marie, Carol, and Angela gave me... I can only hope my mom takes it well and not just as another accusation. :| Haven't gotten a response to either of my emails yet from Jon, but that's fine... I did tell him that he could let Mom see part of one, since it was kinda like an apology. (which aren't necessarily admissions of guilt... I read that in a book at Chapters the other day, haha)

Then I got online.. thank goodness Eric M. was still there! I'd been talking to him earlier about the above Trogdor Dragon icon, and whether "sitch" was an appropriate abbreviation of "situation." We quickly made plans.. a ride at 7:05 sounds great to me! Then I can tell him about my week! (Eric H. thought that my mom's behavior was very rude... I'll say!)

I should note that the "I've Been On The Internet" test works best in IE. If you try doing it with Firefox, it'll freeze after the second page of questions. On Corey's suggestion, I used IE instead... I was thinking of just shelving it until the next time I go to Nathan's, but then I might forget about it. o_O

[13:34:51] AlenaBrolxFlami: remind me never to take the "I've Been On The Internet Test"
[13:35:22] mrptptpt: okay, don't take the "I've Been On The Internet Test"
[13:36:07] AlenaBrolxFlami: I get through the first 2 pages fine, then it screws up the browser :P
[13:43:16] mrptptpt: use a different browser then... you usually use firefox, don't you? it doesn't support EVERYTHING... IE usually does.. just because it's basically the standard, even though it sucks
[13:45:13] AlenaBrolxFlami: yeah, that's what I was thinking... I usually use Firefox... I think I last used IE on this machine like... last week or the week before.... the last time it was used at all was Tuesday night, when I let SOMEONE use the computer..
[13:51:19] mrptptpt: Bob Hope?
[13:52:50] AlenaBrolxFlami: no, he's dead :P
[13:53:01] mrptptpt: don't discriminate
[13:54:03] AlenaBrolxFlami: well, the point is that he wouldn't be around to use the computer ANYHOW :P
[13:54:29] mrptptpt: what about his ghost? you wouldn't let him use your computer?
[13:54:50] AlenaBrolxFlami: if the ghost came around and wanted to use it, then sure....
[13:54:57] mrptptpt: ok good
[13:55:54] mrptptpt: class is over... going home
[13:56:36] AlenaBrolxFlami: ok then. I'll tell you about the test later

I got "Beavis and Butthead" news for ya!

Beavis and Butthead news!

Story for posterity: Beavis And Butt-Head Will Present MTV Video Music Award
Beavis and Butt-Head are scratching their seven-year-itch. After a seven-year break, they are returning to MTV. Beavis and Butt-Head will be presenters at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night. [Aug. 28] The boys will present the Viewer's Choice Award. MTV is also announcing the release of a DVD box set collection: Beavis and Butt-Head: The Mike Judge Collection, Volume One. It drops in November.

Ah, I have such fond memories of watching that show. My brother and I were watching it right before we learned of Princess Diana's death, actually. (and we loved horrifying our mom with the show too, haha... but then, almost anything horrifies her these days! :P)

BS Job Title Generator, Heptadecagram's Random Questions Meme, Nerd / Geek / Dork Test

Arguing with my brother via email is SO much fun... not. :P

At least I hope there will be no more stupid "zombie walk" posts after this weekend. Bleh. Scrolling past them is all I ever do, haha. Although it DOES remind me of a Halloween 2001 picture that Corey sent once... apparently, his ex Rachael thought he looked much better with brown eyes instead of yellow ones. :P

According to the BS Job Title Generator, I am a Dynamic Strategy Specialist. Sounds good to me. :P

Modified from this site.

I'll use the last 20 or so people mentioned in here.

Tri-Lamb Material
56 % Nerd, 4% Geek, 52% Dork

For The Record:
A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning / being smart / academia. A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one. A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations / interactions. You scored better than half in Nerd and Dork, earning you the title of: Tri-Lamb Material. The classic, "80's" nerd, you are what most people think of when they think "nerd," largely due to 80's movies like Revenge of the Nerds and TV shows like Head of the Class. You're exceptionally bright and smart, and partly because of that have never quite fit in with your peers or social groups. Perhaps you're realized, or will someday, that it is possible to retain all of the things that you like about being brilliant and still make peace with the social cliques around you. Or maybe you won't -- it's really not necessary. As the brothers of Lambda Lambda Lambda discovered, you're fine just the way you are and can take pride in that. I mean, who wants to be like Ogre, right!?

Skewered! / why Chris Sykes is so UGH!

This morning, I mentioned my thoughts of "At least I know I won't get skewered.." to my Our Place friends. Then I went for a nap, and dreamed about funerals / food / puzzle books. (???) I've always been worried that someone's girlfriends are going to kill / skewer me for what happened before... he called one of them on the phone last night, and she actually reassured me, haha. Let's see how long this feeling lasts, haha. Anyhow, I went back to the board to find that Nutty (one of the board admins) had posted this hilarious image in response to what I'd said:

Hahahaha! I then went to another thread, to find someone else posting that we all need love and affection. Very true! Jim (or should that be Zebedee? haha) knows just how I feel about hugs, even if it can't quite be described in words other than "safe." (the best description for 'em, as he says...)

Palmer was asking me last night just why I had so many "non-Chris posts." Simply put, Chris is just.. UGH! Almost everything he says is something perverted, or has that kind of meaning attached to it. Here are some relevant links:

iTurf Alphabet Game thread... go back a few pages and read his replies... he's bluecoast47 on there.
iTurf thread demonstrating his pervertedness.
Char's birthday... you CAN have alone time even when you're married, contrary to what Chris seems to think!
Charlotte's immature public entry where she wrote about Chris unfriending her.

Best of all, here are two icons Charlotte made when she got inspired:

There are times when I just want to send Chris these two images:

ARGH! He drives me, Richard, Charlotte, and a bunch of other people absolutely NUTS! (and not in the good way, either! :P)

Oh, and since Palmer brought it up AGAIN last night... here is the "buttsex in church" conversation Corey and I were having on April 22, just before I left for Fellowship that night:

[15:06:33] Six Feet Under: uh... what the hell is going on in this picture????

it's safe :P
[15:12:26] Hamsterette: I have NO idea :P
[15:18:34] Six Feet Under: the kid appears to have a woman holding a bottle to him while he has his pants down... and they're in front of models at a car show or something.... why is this woman storing the kid's pee? if that's what's going on? :P
[17:06:35] Hamsterette: (sorry, I fell asleep :P)
[17:07:58] Hamsterette: I'm not sure I want to know... are you sure this isn't Photoshopped?
[17:11:42] Six Feet Under: well, the lady and kid might be added into that picture... but the lady and kid part looks real :P
[17:11:57] Six Feet Under: it doesn't look photoshopped.. the lighting matches and all that
[17:13:12] Hamsterette: I guess sometimes you never know... but that is one weird picture!
[17:18:48] Six Feet Under: my only guess is that instead of finding a bathroom for a kid they have him pee in a bottle and they throw it away later or something :P or maybe they're major sickos and drink it later ;)
[17:21:44] Hamsterette: yeah, I guess so... I've heard of both things happening..
[17:22:50] Six Feet Under: kids peeing in bottles instead of finding a bathroom?
[17:23:50] Hamsterette: well, maybe not BOTTLES.... but maybe containers..
[17:23:51] Six Feet Under: I almost had to do that once, but that was because I was stuck on the highway in the middle of nowhere and wasn't finding any good places to stop, and had empty drink bottles in the car that I almost resorted to :P ended up finding an exit though
[17:28:35] Hamsterette: good thing you found an exit... I bet you drove straight to the nearest bathroom, and then ran like a bat out of hell :P
[17:36:41] Six Feet Under: I think a bat would do a lot better flying than running
[17:37:54] Hamsterette: well, true... what kind of expression should I use then? :P
[17:48:07] Six Feet Under: I don't know :P I need to go eat.. I'll be back
[17:49:08] Hamsterette: okay then... I need to figure out dinner myself pretty soon before I leave at like 7:10
[18:29:58] Six Feet Under: what kind of trouble are you causing at 7:10?
[18:30:09] Hamsterette: I have to go out!
[18:30:34] Hamsterette: you know, the regular Fellowship doings... and I told Eric about stuff... I don't know what he'll say tonight :P
[18:41:00] Six Feet Under: the next step is buttsex
[18:46:49] Hamsterette: WHAT?!
[18:47:00] Six Feet Under: yeah, that's how it works
[18:47:02] Six Feet Under: :P
[18:47:11] Six Feet Under: kissing and then buttsex
[18:50:51] Hamsterette: WHAT?! *whap*
[18:51:21] Hamsterette: I think there are some intermediary steps along the way...
[18:52:50] Six Feet Under: nope, not anymore
[18:52:58] Hamsterette: says who?
[18:53:15] Six Feet Under: well, the Catholic Church encourages buttsex :P really
[18:53:36] Six Feet Under: as an alternative to regular sex so you don't get pregnant :P
[18:54:16] Hamsterette: since when did you become an expert on the Catholic Church? :P
[18:54:18] Six Feet Under: oh, and it's come out that the new Pope recently was a part of a big document telling all the head church dudes to keep child buttrape stories a secret :P and he was a Nazi :P
[18:54:37] Six Feet Under: you can probably find a story about that somewhere...
[18:54:51] Six Feet Under: it's not just them, apparently lots of groups are advocating that :P
[18:54:51] Hamsterette: yeah, I heard about that..
[18:54:59] Hamsterette: ... oh
[18:56:28] Six Feet Under: so yeah, it's kissing and then buttsex
[18:56:41] Six Feet Under: you can kiss while you have buttsex too if you're flexible enough
[18:57:07] Hamsterette: one would need to be a contortionist for that :P
[19:01:51] Six Feet Under: nah, the pitcher just needs to be taller than the catcher :P
[19:06:14] Hamsterette: thanks a LOT... I'll have that image in my head now... :P
[19:06:29] Hamsterette: just the thing when I'm at church :P gotta leave now... see you when I get back
[19:07:07] Six Feet Under: okay, have fun thinking about buttsex in church ;)
[19:07:08] Six Feet Under: talk to you later
Session Close (Six Feet Under): Fri Apr 22 19:09:19 2005

Ooh, and speaking of pictures... here's one that Corey linked me to just before that portion of chat you see above. I've posted it here before, but it's still mind-boggling!

This morning, Corey messaged me with "buttsex?" (which is supposed to mean "hi" :P), and I told him that it was quite the coincidence that he'd chosen to greet me with that:

[10:24:09] mrptptpt: buttsex?
[10:24:21] AlenaBrolxFlami: ??
[10:24:35] mrptptpt: that means hi
[10:25:04] AlenaBrolxFlami: oh... interesting... hi then..
[10:25:28] AlenaBrolxFlami: funnily enough, Palmer was just saying how you must have perverted my mind because you made me think of buttsex in church (which was only that ONE time...)
[10:25:52] mrptptpt: me?! must have been someone else
[10:26:12] AlenaBrolxFlami: yeah, you :P gimme a sec to dig up the logfiles..
[10:26:27] mrptptpt: do you really need to?
[10:35:18] AlenaBrolxFlami: *pastes ICQ chat logs*
[10:35:50] mrptptpt: that doesn't have anything to do with buttsex in church
[10:35:59] AlenaBrolxFlami: *pastes more ICQ chat logs*
[10:37:33] mrptptpt: well, you're the one that brought up the church aspect, so I hardly see how that can be my fault
[10:38:48] AlenaBrolxFlami: you're the one who brought up the buttsex thing RIGHT BEFORE I HAD TO LEAVE FOR CHURCH!
[10:39:31] mrptptpt: I can't control what you're about to go to :P I try ordering you around but you don't follow my commands, so I can't control that :P
[10:44:31] AlenaBrolxFlami: how do YOU know?
[10:47:21] mrptptpt: I can control you?
[10:47:43] AlenaBrolxFlami: no, I don't think you can :P
[10:47:57] mrptptpt: well, there you go
[10:48:03] mrptptpt: I'm off to class now...
[10:48:09] AlenaBrolxFlami: all right then..

Now when he gets back from dinner, we could have a serious discussion about dildoes. Or maybe not, haha.
