    That does make perfect sense, but I lean towards darker waters =)

    While I was watching it, I kept thinking of these text logs I have of a chap I used to talk to online in a MUSH. It wasn't romantic, he was just a friend who was hellofa fun to chat with. The last log is us arranging our next meet up, the day, the time. Never saw him again, neither did anyone else. All efforts to contact him turned up blank and his online presence died out as payments expired. I knew he was old and had liver trouble of a serious sort and I think he died.

    Reading those logs in the years since, while I'm reading them, it's like he's there again. It's surreal how alive they make him seem. I don't read them anymore.
