There I was. At work. Bored. Not really wanting to work. And I noticed smerp online. The following conversation transpired.
drmellow: smerp on icq / there he is -- i see him now! / i bet he's chilly
smerp: nice haiku, man
smerp: i'm at work - power's out at home
smerp: it's cold there
drmellow: i'm at work, too.
smerp: no power at home?
drmellow: i've got power at home, but no way to connect to the work machines from home.
drmellow: i haven't set up vpn, etc. blah, blah, blah. plus, I use a mac at home....
smerp: communist! :)
drmellow: Red DrMellow? / He can't be a communist -- / He votes G. O. P.!
smerp: i like haikus too
smerp: but this has gone too far man
smerp: cease and desist now
drmellow bows to smerp's haiku mastery.
