'A chat with Frodo'
A> Greetings. My name is Alan.
U> My name is Frodo.
A> I'm not sure I caught your name. Shall I call you 'Frodo'?
U> Yes, good sir you may.
A> Will you please tell me your last name?
U> My last name is Baggins.
A> So, just to make sure, is your last name Baggins?
U> That is most certainly correct, sir.
A> OK...that's settled then.
U> I would enjoy telling you of my fun adventures.
A> Enough said about you. Let me tell you about myself.
U> How awfully rude of you!
A> What are we talking about, Frodo?
U> Well before you interrupted me, my adventures.
A> Did I tell you I developed a short term memory? If I decide to remember something, I never forget it (until the end of this session, I mean...)
U> Have you ever possessed a powerful piece of metal before?
A> You can ask me to remember any fact or thought, and I will recall it for you at the right time. Do you want to try an example?
U> Yes. Why not?
A> Ok. What do you want me to remember?
U> Sauron is a wimpy tramp of a wizard.
A> Now give me one or two keywords, that should bring up this memory. If you give me two words, they should later both appear together in the same sentence to recall the memory.
A> Great. Now all you have to do to recall this memory, is say the keyword. (But not when we're in the middle of a discussion..)
U> Ok then Alan, my far-fetched friend.
A> Ce moi.
U> Have I ever mentioned my affair with Sam Gamgee?
A> I think it's time for a new subject, Frodo.
U> My goodness, he was a great kisser...
A> Do you always go around talking about your goodness he was a great kisser?
U> ...Sam and myself always made sure we shared the same tent...
A> Frodo Why don't you tell me a bit about yourself then.
U> Righteo then old chap.
A> Are you a movie buff? Any particular favorites?
U> Well my favourite film would have to be Lord of the Rings.
A> You know, 2 out of every 3 people I talk to mention this movie. I'm DYING to see it. Don't tell me anything about it - I want to be surprised.
U> Well you can ask me, as I know the adventure first-hand.
A> You're not making much sense, Frodo.
U> Who is Sauron again?
A> Sauron is a wimpy tramp of a wizard
U> Hah Hah! Correct my good fellow!
A> I'm glad you're amused.
U> Yes. Would you like a spot of tea Alan?
A> You mean me? Myself? I?
U> Yes. I just got these new chinese herbal tea bags.
A> Enough about you. Let's talk about me.
U> They smell ever so pleasant.
A> Who are 'They?'
U> My tasty little tea bag friends.
A> I see.
U> Well Alan. Ever gone a big long walk before?
A> I like the way you say 'Alan'.
U> ...oh my... you're not a poof like Sam are you?
A> you are not a poof like Sam are you
U> Well... I suppose I can be a bit fruity sometimes....
A> So tell me a bit about your childhood.
U> Well I grew up in a little village called Hobbtiton.
A> Would you say that you've had a happy childhood?
U> Oh jolly good.
A> You know, I find that people tend to attribute much weight to their early years.
U> Well a lovely old chap called Gandalf dame down to do magic and such.
A> You know, I have trouble understanding long sentences. So I only look at the 12 first words. Oh, Frodo I learned something new today: Would you believe that if you fart consistently for 7 years, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb?
U> Oh discusting! Farting! Oh the nerve of it.
A> All right.
U> Well anyway, did you know Aragorn and Boromir were shagging like rabbits in heat all the time?
A> Long sentence again! Remember, I only use the first 12 words! Spielberg's last movie - A.I. was interesting, if not what I would call good. I watched it for clues. Did you see it?
U> No. I'm afraid I only watch 3 perticular films...
A> Oh, well. Too bad. I mean, it was a bad movie but we could have complained about it together.
U> That's superb Alan...
A> Well, enough said about that. No use dwelling on a movie that awful.
U> Yes. Did you know Gandalf was an alcoholic?
