Hopita: what? oh cripes.
Hopita: weird
mattbaya: strange days indeed
mattbaya: you two should chat directly and leave me out of it
Hopita: i didn't realize there was another computer here
Hopita: you'll have to send me a copy of that chat as well ... I take it he can't see what I'm writing, as I can't see what he's writing
mattbaya: either that or you've gone schizophrenic
Hopita: this is like "The Matrix"
Hopita: could be
Hopita: could be ... never know
Hopita: could be a brain in a jar somewhere...
Hopita: it has been that kind of week after all
mattbaya: but you're switching fonts as you chat too.. pretty impressive
mattbaya: follow the white rabbit
Hopita: oy vey
Hopita: yeah it's like the Turing Test
mattbaya: no he cant see what you are writing either
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: one pill makes you larger ...

mattbaya: and Hope, where are you?
Hopita: i'm at the counter
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: hey - what would happen if we went to a chat room? Is that possible? And just who is this Greg guy? Do I know him?

Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: I'm at home
mattbaya: ahhh
mattbaya: Hope is at home
Hopita: where is Hope?
Hopita: ah...
mattbaya: but must have left herself logged in at Quiet Storm
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: I used that computer several hours ago, and apparently it didn't log me off when I exited
Hopita: so it seems
mattbaya: THE REAL HOPE: I used that computer several hours ago, and apparently it didn't log me off when I exited
Hopita: so it would seem, says FALSE HOPE
mattbaya: so it would seem, says FALSE HOPE
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: I closed all the windows ... I thought I was done ... I wonder if anyone else has been thinking they've been talking to me ...
mattbaya: THE REAL HOPE: I closed all the windows ... I thought I was done ... I wonder if anyone else has been thinking they've been talking to me ..
Hopita: well, I gotta run
mattbaya: Kinda fun
Hopita: perhaps I'll see if I can log her off here?
mattbaya: but I guess you should log her off
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: So Greg -- who are you? Do I know you?

Hopita: ah, cool
Hopita: never been to Maine
mattbaya: i've never seen AIM do this before
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: I think I might know who you are ... I was in there before, wearing all black, black hat, black scarf, noserings, glasses ... left the computer and went and sat with a friend over on the smoking side of the counter ... left and headed home around 8 pm (but thought I logged off the computer at least an hour before that)

Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: p.s. Matt: just cause I sat with Chris on the smoking side doesn't mean I smoked...
Hopita: Hmm... I was with the shaven-headed guy (Mike) and the 2-year old boy (Seth)
mattbaya: Hmm... I was with the shaven-headed guy (Mike) and the 2-year old boy (Seth)
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: yes... I do know who you are .. I was gonna ask if you had a kid
mattbaya: THE REAL HOPE: yes... I do know who you are .. I was gonna ask if you had a kid
Hopita: Nope, he's Mike's kid.
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: I was mostly loitering by myself and drinking water
mattbaya: Nope, he's Mike's kid.
Hopita: Even tho he has blonde hair
mattbaya: Even tho he has blonde hair
mattbaya: THE REAL HOPE: I was mostly loitering by myself and drinking water
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: well, yes, but he was with you, as in near you, so I considered the possibility that he may've been yours
Hopita: Heh... well, introduce yourself if you like the next time you see me
mattbaya: THE REAL HOPE: well, yes, but he was with you, as in near you, so I considered the possibility that he may've been yours
mattbaya: Heh... well, introduce yourself if you like the next time you see me

mattbaya: THE REAL HOPE: I love that Matt is in Maine, facilitating a conversation taking place in two Pittsburgh neighborhoods
mattbaya: I do what I can (says Matt)
mattbaya: the ghost in the machine
Hopita: yeah, the wonders of technology!
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: by far one of the strangest conversations I've had all week
mattbaya: actually Hope i never told you.. I am the internet
mattbaya: THE REAL HOPE: by far one of the strangest conversations I've had all week
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: you am the intrenet?
mattbaya: Just call me Jane (Orson Scott Card reference) (from Matt)
Hopita: Hey... I should get going!
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: over my head ... the kind of thing that, were someone else saying it, I would come to you to explain
Hopita: Nice talking to you... say hi sometime
Hopita: I'll see if I can log you off, k?
mattbaya: Hey... I should get going!
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: is Greg still at Quiet Storm, pretending he's me?

Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: ah, he's leaving
Hopita: Bye!
mattbaya: THE REAL HOPE: ah, he's leaving
mattbaya: Bye!
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: I was saying that jokingly, by the way
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: (the crack about his pretending to be me)
mattbaya: I think he left
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: oh well ... how very odd . You'll have to send me a complete transcript
mattbaya: ok
mattbaya: I'll do that now
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: (though at the end, I think you fed most of it back to me)
Hopita: THE REAL HOPE: I suppose I can stop saying "THE REAL HOPE"
mattbaya: How about the 'last best hope'
mattbaya: ?
mattbaya:
Hopita: I liked that he was THE FALSE HOPE ... sounded so philosophical
