Correspondences: Chatting during the Second Presidential Debates

5:59 PM me: Where are you?

5 minutes
6:05 PM Bryan: I'm at Racer Cafe, little TV and tea.
me: I'm at my computer.
Witty comment
Bryan: Thanks. Witty. Obama said "strip."
6:09 PM me: That joke didn't work.
6:10 PM Bryan: Oh lord, Meg Whitman. We need a blue alternative to Ebay, stat.
6:11 PM me: The Guardian liveblog is drinking Blue Moon.
Bryan: Anheuser Busch Cindy McCain Blue Moon?

6 minutes
6:18 PM Bryan: Sorry, just checked. It's owned by Coors. And there's no Contras to support in Nicaragua anymore.
6:19 PM me: I'm drinking American budweiser
That woman's question phrasing WAS a-ma-ZING?
6:20 PM Bryan: In TN that was eloquence.
6:23 PM me: Jenny Ruth says "I do not like this man. He's such a piece of poop."
6:24 PM Bryan: I wonder if he has that old man smell when he gets up in their faces like that.
6:25 PM me: Budweiser's good.
6:26 PM Bryan: He's actually answering the question, go Barack!
6:27 PM me: Look at this liveblog software:
Bryan: Sexy software. I sent you that link twice already.
6:28 PM me: Aha.
Aja.
Sorry, I'm slow.
How do we get it?
Bryan: lemme check. might cost a little.
6:30 PM it's free! you just have to register. You may need a larger HTML window at itwaslost - maybe a link to a wordpress page.
me: I'm considering a big jump anyway.
I'd like it to look more like a magazine with different contributers.
But I'm slow moving.
6:31 PM Bryan: OVERHEAD PROJECTOR for a planetarium sounds awesome.
6:33 PM me: I keep submitting lines from T.S. Eliot's Prufrock to the Huffpost blog
liveblog
Bryan: ha ha i'm there
6:36 PM i left a comment demanding some insight from T.S. Eliot
me: Brilliant.
6:37 PM Let's swamp them with nonsense.
6:39 PM Bryan: he said "coda," Brokaw's horny.
me: I'm glad the audience is racially diverse, to reflect our diverse nation.
6:40 PM Bryan: looks like the choir at a megachurch, with less pastel
me: Reid the Demographer says: "i dont' see any smart people among them"
Bryan: lol
me: Or people with their own questions.
6:41 PM Bryan: was that a senial old man gaffe?
6:42 PM does he even cash his soc sec checks he's been getting for nine years?

6 minutes
6:49 PM me: From the times blog: "As the debate began, Ms. Palin sat down at a table with Senator Elizabeth Dole, Senator Richard Burr and his wife, Brooke, and Patrick McGrory, the mayor of Charlotte, N.C. (For the record, Ms. Dole eats pizza with a knife and fork.)"
That one
6:50 PM Bryan: "that one, this number right here, look at the kvecher!"
pizza with a knife & fork is satanic
6:53 PM me: MC Hammer's in the audience!
6:54 PM Bryan: are you stalking Hammer?
me: In the house.
He never calls me back.
Bryan: meow
6:55 PM me: Going across state lines, makes me think of the NY governor.
HO
Hair transplants!
Bryan: "gold plated cadillac" obviously he's being racist
me: So below the belt!
6:56 PM Bryan: the hair plugs originate below the belt, don't they?
me: I had mine cut from my pinky toe.
6:57 PM Bryan: "my mother's dead." debate OVER. game, Obama.

5 minutes
7:03 PM Bryan: i'm gonna head home. it's rowdy here. peace out, moustache.
me: Aerial Mouse-stache hunting
I hope I never have to have a town-hall debate. This seems hard.

I've made the correspondences section! I feel like I've survived the hazing.

Sorry to let you down, but there's not much rhyme or reason to the logic of the correspondence section.

Oh well. I guess I'm still a loser. I can't spell anyway.
