(16:27:22) kesuari: is *that* what causes that bug?

(16:27:27) kesuari: i hadn't worked it out yet

(16:27:30) kesuari: but you could easily be right!

(16:27:33) [me]: that's what I assumed it was

(16:27:36) [me]: and of course I'm right

(16:27:50) kesuari: including about all the contradictory things you might've said about l/n?

(16:28:02) [me]: that's all just theory

(16:28:07) [me]: there's no way to be right for sure ;)

(16:28:21) kesuari: but if you contradict yourself, you must be wrong

(16:28:32) [me]: no, just stating theories

(16:28:32) kesuari: especially if you begin the contradiction by saying "oh, i was wrong before"

(16:28:39) [me]: have I said that?

(16:28:42) [me]: .. probably actually

(16:28:43) kesuari: i don't know

(16:28:45) kesuari: i'm assuming you have

(16:28:50) kesuari: because it makes my theory make you look bad

(23:30:41) Sarah: I'll make it unhealthy. I'm going to eat chocolate covered pretzels afterwards.

(23:34:07) [me]: send me some?

...

(23:35:15) Sarah: Hmmm....do you want me to send you some?

(23:35:27) [me]: heh, I was just kidding

(23:35:32) [me]: unless you can find a way to e-mail them to me

(23:35:55) Sarah: I only have one bag here and I am NOT sharing them.

(23:36:00) [me]: aw

(23:36:35) Sarah: I'll share some of my weird soup with you?

(23:36:40) [me]: ROFL, no thanks

(23:37:07) Sarah: Good, because you'd probably vomit and hate me for the rest of your life.

(23:37:21) [me]: is it that bad?

(23:37:55) Sarah: It would be fine if it were just vegetable soup, but it's like they tried to add chicken and dumplings.....but it's VEGETABLE soup.

(23:40:17) [me]: what's the soup call itself?

(23:40:45) Sarah: It says that it's chicken and dumplings. I got maybe 3 pieces of bite sized chicken?
