anndelise: why is your name in italics?
mom: ?? where??
anndelise: are you in hiding or something?
mom: did you find me or not?
anndelise: on my list, your name is in italics...usually that's reserved for if someone is invisible, but is letting you see them
mom: what are you talking about
mom: hang on
mom: am I on now?
anndelise: nope, still italics, i'm gonna check what's happening if anything on this side, heh
mom: my list says I appear available to everybody
anndelise: yeah, so does mine
anndelise: this is weird
anndelise: but it's probably something from my side
anndelise: i just don't know what
mom: maybe it will fix itself when you restart the computer
anndelise: who knows
anndelise: how ya doin?
mom: I'm just coming out of a state of confusion
anndelise: coming out of one? i thought it was a permanent state
anndelise: you mean there might be hope for me??
anndelise: confusion about what? (may i ask)
mom: about whether I'm here or not, whether I'm hiding or not, whether I've been found or not
anndelise: oooh, oops
mom: delayed reaction back to health indicates it is now 9:49 pm and I am TIRED
mom: but I've got to lose some games before I can sleep
anndelise: it's only 8:50 here and i've been ready for bed for an hour now
mom: I guess I'm a loser
anndelise: but it's planned losing
mom: so, go to bed
anndelise: so not as much a loser as someone who's intending to win
mom: well, yeh - but if I planned to win before going to bed, I'd never get there!!
anndelise: and face it...if the intent is to lose, and you lose, then that means you really won
mom: that's true - so, I'm a winner either way - I just like to go about it the hard way
anndelise: the unconventional way
mom: so, the short path to winning is by losing - very profound
anndelise: i have very good insights when i'm this sleepy
anndelise: yep yep yep
mom: if there was a face with a patting hand on a head, I'd put it up
mom: oh, never mind - look to my picture - your the duckling, I'm the kitten
[has a picture of a cat patting a duckling's head as her avatar]
anndelise: i'm gonna head for sleep now
mom: am I losting you?
mom: am I losing you?
anndelise: i'm already lost
mom: obviously I was losing my ability to spell
mom: ok - go find your bed and be a winner
anndelise: but i hadn't intended to get lost, so that means i'm totally lost
anndelise: gnite ..hugs and kisses
mom: it's better to be totally lost than to think you're really not lost at all
anndelise: or at least be aware that you're totally lost instead of thinking you're not at all lost
mom: love you
anndelise: though, ignorance CAN be bliss
mom: that is true
