Sharp Interview

Sharp AKA 'Sharpy' 'Sharpster' etc. is an old friend of mine, and this is her interview. We met up in my RP Classroom. Keep in mind that Sharp's time zone is quite literally 12 hours different from my own, so she's a trooper to even stay awake this long for the interview.  Thanks Sharp!      - Krogenar # Tuesday, March 12, 2002::19:13:12 :: Now logging session to C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\sharp.txt You say [OOC] 'Ok..

Sharp says [OOC] 'just remember I am typing lefty here*'. You smile happily.. You say [OOC] 'No worries.'. Tapion says 'hi'. You say [OOC] 'We'll start off IC.'. You bow before him.. Sharp says 'just a sec'. Sharp stands up.. Sharp utters the words, 'qaiqzrrahuai'.. Tapion looks warmer.. Tapion no longer looks so mighty.. The shield protecting Tapion vanishes.. Tapion looks stronger.. You say 'Sorry... class is over. This is an interview. If you're quiet, you can stay.'. Sharp utters the words, 'uqzgpuzre'.. Tapion is surrounded by an icy shield.. Sharp utters the words, 'yucandusgpuzre'.. Tapion is surrounded by a fiery shield.. Sharp utters the words, 'gpaqtgpuzre'.. Tapion is surrounded by a crackling shield.. Sharp utters the words, 'gaiqhjabral'.. Tapion is surrounded by a white aura.. Sharp rolls her eyes at you.. Sharp says 'He was here to see me, Kroggy '. Sharp sticks her tongue out at you, what a DORK!!. You shrug.. Tapion prays for transportation!. Tapion disappears.. You say 'Why?'. You poke her in the ribs.. You smile happily.. Sharp says 'Cause I help a bit when I can.'. You say 'Sharp... who are you anyway?'. Krogenar eyes Sharp specutively.. Sharp says 'I am Sharp Sorannon, Shadow Thief, wife of Seive.'. You say 'What can you tell me about your clan?'. Sharp grins evilly.. Sharp says 'Well, the Shadow Thieves are a colourful collection of many members...'. Sharp says 'We all stand together in the face of dangerous tasks. We are tight, very much like a family.'. Krogenar nods, listens.. Sharp says 'Our movements and beliefs are very secret.'. You raise an eyebrow at the notion.. Sharp says 'We are the "Shadow" Thieves afterall.'. You say 'Some have said that you have no beliefs - that you are just skilled thieves.'. You say 'How would you react to that?'. Sharp nods.. Sharp says 'Some would...'. Sharp smirks.. Sharp says 'We are skilled, that is for certain. But things like beliefs are very much an individual thing...'. Sharp says 'We have Mask as a deity, though his worship is not enforced...'. You nod at Sharp.. Krogenar listens.. Sharp says 'I can not speak for the others, but my beliefs are loyalty, trust, family and love. Strange to some I guess.'. You say [OOC] 'Ok... some OOC questions now.'. You smile at her.. You say [OOC] 'How long have you been a player, here on WaterDeep?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Since approximately 3-4 months after WD opened.'. You whistle at the sight of her.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Yeah, old skool:P'. Sharp says [OOC] 'I wasn't always pk though. I stood back in the safety of NPK for years.'. You say [OOC] 'What can you tell us about the real you, the person who plays Sharp?'. You say [OOC] 'Your real name, where you live, etc?'. You say [OOC] 'Only as much as you feel comfortable sharing.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Hana, I am an Aussie, I AM FEMALE, lots of people think Sharp and I are male for some reason.'. You boggle at Sharp.. You say [OOC] 'Why?!'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Well, I guess the name "Sharp" is sexless, and stereotypically, only males get into PK, or males playing female chars.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Oh, I'm also the best ICU Nurse in the world, just for the record.'. Sharp struts proudly.. Sharp makes sure you get that one down.. You chuckle politely.. You say [OOC] 'What's your real name?'. You realize your mistake and slap yourself in the head and yell DOH!. You say [OOC] 'Hana.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Can you read, babe? Hana.'. You poke her in the ribs.. Sharp rolls her eyes, disgusted.. You chuckle politely.. You say [OOC] 'Explain what an 'Aussie' is... for those who don't know.'. Sharp speaks very slowly like Kroggy.. You say [OOC] 'You're a 'Sheila', right?'. [dropped link right..... here.] You say [OOC] 'Dropped link... but it never told me.'. You say [OOC] 'Thought I was just lagged.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'what did you see last?'. You say [OOC] 'I think I asked (or tried to ask) you what an 'Aussie' was - for those who don't know.'. You say [OOC] 'And you'd be called a 'Sheila', right?'. You wink suggestively at Sharp.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Want me to pick it up there?'. You nod.. You say [OOC] 'Please.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'You say OOC 'I'm 27 too, don't want anyone thinking I am 17 or 18.''. Sharp says [OOC] 'You say OOC 'Been there, done that.''. You say [OOC] 'Ah! You fart dust like I do... welcome to the club.'. Sharp smiles happily.. You smirk.. Sharp peeks over your shoulder.. Krogenar spins around, checking over his shoulder.. You say [OOC] 'What?!'. Krogenar's Classroom. Bookshelves line the walls here, with more stacked on tables, chairs, even the floor. A single window looks out over Westbridge,. and a tree limb has snaked its way through it, into the room. The rogue branch has arched along the ceiling, its branches, and leaves, fanning out against the ceiling, concealing it. A redwood desk, with  a strange machine on it, sits here.

(_x_) is here.. [..C.........] A cave bear sits here awating its masters command.. Sharp grins evilly.. Sharp says [OOC] 'I was peeking at yer notes while you dropped link.'. Sharp bends over and gives you the vertical smile!. You say [OOC] 'Yah right!'. You say [OOC] 'So... what's an 'Aussie'?'. Sharp speaks slowly again.. Krogenar thinks, 'Aussies must thinks slowly too... hrm... this could be a long interview.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'I am an "Aussie", I reside, was born in, and am a 'Sheila' in Australia.''. You say [OOC] 'And you work in the Intensive Care Unit, at a hospital... is that like an emergency room?'. Sharp thinks, 'Krog is on some major drugs.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Intensive Care is where people go if they are really sick, after they present primarily to either the ED or our helipad.'. Krogenar thinks, 'I need some drugs to make it through this one, I think..'. You say [OOC] 'ED?'. Sharp thinks ooc, 'I told the little farker I couldn't type fast left handed.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Same as Emergency Room, Emergency Department.'. You chuckle politely.. You say [OOC] 'Sorry!'. Sharp says [OOC] ':P Smarty pants.'. You poke her in the ribs.. Sharp sniffs sadly at the way you are treating her.. Flaern forces you to 'burp'. You burp loudly. Sharp burps loudly. Sharp says 'pardon me'. You say [OOC] 'Why are you typing with one hand?'. Krogenar looks at Sharp strangely.. You say [OOC] 'Sure you're not a guy?'. You cackle gleefully.. Sharp says [OOC] 'I broke my right arm and had surgery, no, I am not wanking.'. Sharp smirks.. You say [OOC] 'How'd you break it?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Shit, you just had to ask, didn't ya?'. Sharp grins evilly.. You nod.. Sharp says [OOC] 'I err, umm, I was a wee bit drunk at a D&D ball, I was wearing heels that were way too high, and I slipped on a wooden floor.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Skidded ass over tit... Bang!'. You say [OOC] 'How high were these heels? (Sarg would want me to ask.)'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Sarg knows better than to mess with me, but I think they would have been 3 inches at a guess.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Adding a whole new dimension to my stature, that was the plan.'. Sharp winces in agony.. You smile happily.. You say [OOC] 'Can you describe your character, Sharp, to us, from an OOC standpoint? What are you trying to create with her?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'She has a long, convoluted history, dating back to when I was a newbie...'. You nod.. Krogenar listens.. Sharp says [OOC] 'But the most recent and solid of her RP comes from when she went PK and joined CoN.'. You say [OOC] 'Can you describe that episode? Summarize it?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Sharp was strictly a Guardian...'. You have been penalized -400000 experience points.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Had a weirdass dream and then very shockingly decided to leave the Guardians, her husband and join CoN under the wing of Seive...'. Sharp says [OOC] 'I had no clue about PK, was scared shitless and Seive dared me to do it, he even had bets that I'd never hero, so I heard.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'So was forged the bizzare relationship with Seive.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'At that point Sharp was vulnerable, and very reliant.'. Krogenar nods, listens.. Sharp says [OOC] 'I built her up to be independent, strong of mind, quick of wit and hopefully a pk force.'. Krogenar listens.. Sharp says [OOC] 'She was influenced by many other characters in her life, and drew from them many valuable pieces of information...'. You say [OOC] 'Who were these other people?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Sharp is a quiet knowledge seeker, a smart ass, friendly, independent and nasty at times.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Largely Seive has had a huge input, as you probably know from our roles. But Odd, Oaklore and all the guys in ST help me make her.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'The Guardians too, I shall never forget their contribution.'. You say [OOC] 'You said earlier that you hoped to make Sharp a 'pk force' - do you think you have?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Hmm, some days I think so, others not. I do not profess to be a great pkiller, but I get by. There is a perception out there that Sharp is really cut-throat, I''. Krogenar listens.. Sharp smirks.. Sharp says [OOC] 'I'd be happy to add nutrients to that theory, right or wrong.'. You smile happily.. You say [OOC] 'Also, you said that she can be 'nasty'... how so?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Sharp is very loyal, loves her clan and her family, she is quick to cut down those who threaten her world.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'She has a smart mouth that sometimes revolts me.'. Sharp throws back her head and cackles with insane glee!. You say [OOC] 'Are Sharp and Krogenar friends IC?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Yes, we are.'. Krogenar wiggles his eyebrows.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Weird friends.'. You nod in enthusiastic agreement with Sharp.. You say [OOC] 'You and I have to write that story some time.'. You dazzle Sharp with your smile.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Shit yeah!'. You say [OOC] 'Where do you see Sharp going in the future, as a character?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Sharp has lots of friends like Krog.'. You say [OOC] 'What drives her forwards?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Hmm, interesting question...'. You say [OOC] 'What does she fear... what does she hope for?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'She is mostly driven by her clan, that's everything to her...'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Perhaps Sharp's family will play a larger part in the future, kids etc...'. Sharp says [OOC] 'It will depend what ebbs and flows come her way RP wise I think. I tend not to stick to a direct line in RP, just go with the flow.'. Krogenar thinks, 'Little Sharp's.... '. You shudder at the horror and repress tears. . You nod at Sharp.. Sharp says [OOC] 'There are little Sorannons out there already.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Just waiting to be developed.'. You say [OOC] 'What do you think your clan's strong points are? What are you proudest of?'. Krogenar checks the edge of his Axe.. Sharp says [OOC] 'I love that we are a real team, that we all know each other well, that we have some amazing characters, that's all on an ooc level...'. Sharp raises an eyebrow at you.. Krogenar thumbs the edge of the blade, and nicks his finger.. Krogenar sucks the blood off his finger.. Sharp says 'Gunna hit me with that you goose?'. You say 'Never mind me, I'm listening!'. You nod at Sharp.. You say [OOC] 'And what would you like to see improve with your clan?'. You say [OOC] 'What are your weak points... be honest now!'. You poke her in the ribs.. Sharp says [OOC] 'In all honesty, the clan, I don't think Viwrathe and Adrigan could make it better.'. You say [OOC] 'No? Oh c'mon now.... there's nothing bad in ShadowThief land, ever?'. You poke her in the ribs.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Sometimes we are just laughing too much to get a hit together.'. You chuckle at her joke.. You nod.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Oh, I got one...'. You say [OOC] 'Any interesting stories to share? From your life as a Thief?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Our weakest point is....'. You nod.. Sharp says [OOC] 'AFK! Argh!'. You nod in enthusiastic agreement with Sharp.. You say [OOC] 'A lot of AFK members?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Yeah, we are thinking of forming an AFK Faction.'. Sharp falls to the ground and rolls around laughing hysterically.. You say [OOC] 'Why do you think people spend so much time AFK?'. Krogenar thinks, 'I think I know what the reason is..'. You say [OOC] 'I have no idea why people would be AFK as much as they are.'. You bat your eyelashes.. You smile happily.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Well, a lot of the guys just log on for the whole day and night and drop in for a spot of pk, quest, age their chars and all that.'. You nod at Sharp.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Gawd, beats me why they do it, Seive and Addy are getting really wrinkly.'. Krogenar listens.. You say [OOC] 'I think part of it might be quest timers.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Yeah, I said that.'. You say [OOC] 'Can you think of any memorable moments.'. Sharp says [OOC] '(_x_)'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Hmm...'. Krogenar leaps back, drawing his blade... a bear is attacking!!!. Krogenar thinks, 'Oh... just Sharp's ass.'. Krogenar smiles widely.. You say [OOC] 'Or... what's your favorite RP moment with Sharp.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'If I left today, never to return, I'd always remember our clan channel. That thing is so spammy, and some of the things said are just hilarious...'. You nod at Sharp.. You say [OOC] 'Like what?!'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Happiest RP moments were when Seive and Sharp married, and Sharp's acceptance into ST....'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Oh, and the old CoN days are very fond memories.'. You say [OOC] 'Can you describe your entrance in ST? What was it like?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'I was so nervous, I did a gawd-awful interview and I felt like a twit, I'd only RPed the "Nightmare" and the interview was kinda sprung on me.'. You say [OOC] 'Do you think the interview was meant to be 'sprung' on you?'. You say [OOC] 'Do you think it was planned that way, maybe?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Yeah, I am sure it was. The shock factor successfully made me pee my pants.'. You say [OOC] 'What is it about WaterDeep that keeps you coming back? Is it the PK, the RP? the socializing?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'I gotta say the people do, and I mean that in an all encompassing way. I have met some awesome people here.'. You nod.. Sharp says [OOC] '2nd, the RP when it's hot, then chatting, helping around, then PK.'. You say [OOC] 'Have you met any people here, that you'd rather not have met?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'I don't really hate anyone here, I think they all bring their own little essence of WD. There are some annoying buggers around though.'. You nod.. You say [OOC] 'If you could change WD in any way, codewise - what would you change?'. You say [OOC] 'A new skill, remove a skill... anything.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'I don't know that much about code really. But a few things I'd like to see are the finality of race changes and I'd love to see the airship thing take off (no pun).'. Sharp says [OOC] 'New areas are always fun too.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'I wish I had the skill and imagination to do that shit.'. You say [OOC] 'You don't think airships are... airborne yet?'. You poke her in the ribs.. You say [OOC] 'I think you do!'. You dazzle Sharp with your smile.. Sharp says [OOC] 'I mean like take the mud by storm! '. Sharp says [OOC] 'Be a major draw card for WD.'. You raise your eyebrow at Sharp.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Only time will enable that to happen, methinks.'. You say [OOC] 'Draw card?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Hmm, must be an Aussie term... Meaning a highlight, a major feature.'. You nod at Sharp.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Amazes me what you aliens don't understand when I speak:P'. You say [OOC] 'I always ask the following question....'. Sharp nods.. You say [OOC] 'If you were to leave WD today, how would you like to be remembered.'. Sharp sits back and begins to think.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Helpful, funny, smart and Aussie!'. Sharp flexes her muscles...what a stud!?!. Sharp says [OOC] 'and......'. Krogenar waits.. Sharp says [OOC] 'And I really think this sums it up...'. Krogenar thinks, 'here comes the moon...'. Sharp says [OOC] '(_x_) '. You nod.. You shrug.. You say [OOC] 'Do I know you, or do I know you?!'. You overwhelm Sharp with a great, big, hulking bearhug.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Too well, Krogmeiser.'. Sharp snickers softly.. Sharp hugs you.. You say [OOC] 'Who would you miss the most, if you had to leave?'. Krogenar stands a little taller.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Woot! We done?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'ahh...'. Sharp says [OOC] 'I'd miss my friends, the array of weird and wonderful people that I know through RP and ooc chit chat.'. You say [OOC] 'Do you have any one question for me.'. You (fgossip) 'It is... one big family.'. Krogenar listens.. Sharp sits back and begins to think.. Sharp says [OOC] 'What's your perception of Sharp? Is it the same as mine? Just so I get a picture of RP effectiveness.'. You nod.. You say [OOC] 'Great question!'. You say [OOC] 'I see you as a person to keep my eye on.'. You say [OOC] 'I trust you, but I watch you.'. Sharp raises an eyebrow.. Sharp nods.. You say [OOC] 'IC of course.'. You smile happily.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Of course.'. Sharp grins evilly.. You say [OOC] 'Honestly...'. You say [OOC] '... we haven't RPed together as much as I'd like!'. You poke her in the ribs.. You say [OOC] 'Like I said earlier... we should write that story.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Yeah, we should RP more.'. You say [OOC] 'We can have the same event, and write it from our two perspectives.'. You say [OOC] 'I'll put something together.'. You say [OOC] 'And you tell me what you think.'. You dazzle Sharp with your smile.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Sure, email it to me.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Will do.'. You say [OOC] 'Is there any question I FAILED to ask... that'd you'd like to answer?'. Sharp salutes the air.. You chuckle politely.. Krogenar salutes the floor.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Nah, I'm not into divulging bra size and such.'. Sharp winks suggestively.. Krogenar looks at Sharp's profile.. Sharp stretches luxuriously. Kinda makes you want to doesn't it?. Sharp says [OOC] 'Mutha of lag!'. Krogenar gapes!. You say [OOC] 'Over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder, eh?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Pft, what is this interview gunna be titled?'. Sharp raises an eyebrow.. Krogenar wonders about the engineering needed.... Sharp pokes you in the ribs.. You chuckle politely.. You say 'Eh, what? I was distracted.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Sharp is drow now'. You say 'I don't know, I'll think of something.'. You nod.. You say [OOC] 'Used to be a podrikev.'. You say [OOC] 'Why? Can you suggest a title?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'no, that's your job.'. Sharp smirks.. You say [OOC] 'Oh!.... favorite music?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Hugely vast and varied...'. You say [OOC] 'Do you listen to music when you mud?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Always! Music is my life! Rock, Classical, Opera, Jazz, anything'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Seeing Roger Waters soon.'. Sharp hops around like a little kid.. You raise an eyebrow at the notion.. You say [OOC] 'Roger who?'. Krogenar thinks, 'Uh oh... revealed myself as a moron.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'OMG! Get with the program! Pink Floyd? Heard of them?'. Sharp thinks, 'What a moron.'. Sharp giggles.. You realize your mistake and slap yourself in the head and yell DOH!. Sharp says [OOC] 'He's the founding lead singer'. You say [OOC] 'I was never really into them... I was (am) a dork.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'That's ok, there's a bit of dork in all of us.'. You say [OOC] 'Whats the dork in you?'. Sharp thinks, 'Just a lot more in you.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'The dork in me is the one who listens to the Venger Boys CD.'. You say [OOC] 'Venger boys?'. You say [OOC] '<--- musically illiterate.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Oh dear.'. Krogenar stalls for time... then redirects.. You say [OOC] 'What... books do you read?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'I need a gooood book to read, like one that grabs me. At the moment I am reading a book called "Tell No One" by Harlan Coben.'. You say [OOC] 'What's it about?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'It's a crime, suspense thingy, husband finds apparently murdered wife etc.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'I'll give anything a try reading wise, but it has to be good.'. Krogenar whispers: 'Brian Lumley'. Sharp shakes her head.. You say [OOC] ''The Burrowers Beneath''. Sharp says [OOC] 'Never read it'. Krogenar nods.. You say [OOC] 'You'd love it. Great fantasy - or read Fritz Leiber, 'Lean Times in Lankhmar''. Sharp says [OOC] 'I'll watch out for it though, being layed up I can read a lot more.'. You say [OOC] 'You would LOVE Leiber. Fafhrd and The Grey Mouser - my two favorite characters of ALL TIME.'. You beam delightedly at nothing in particular.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Ok, ok, I'll get it.'. You say [OOC] 'He's one of the originators of the whole D&D 'fantasy' genre.'. Sharp puts her hands in the air.. You say [OOC] 'Don't make me mail you a copy ... all the way to Aussie land.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Never read any FR or D&D'. You wince in agony.. You say [OOC] 'No... don't. The FR novels mostly suck.'. You shudder at the horror and repress tears. . Sharp says [OOC] 'I should clarify something...'. You nod.. Krogenar listens.. Sharp says [OOC] 'The D&D ball that I broke my arm at was not a Dungeons and Dragons ball.'. You say [OOC] 'Was it a heavy, iron ball?'. You ponder the question.. You say [OOC] 'A medicine ball?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Gawd, imagine if people thought it was.....'. You say [OOC] 'Cannon ball?'. You cackle gleefully.. Sharp says [OOC] 'D&D is Aus is a charity for red cross... Desperate and Dateless Ball.'. You comfort her.. You hug her.. Sharp says 'Get off me!'.

You say [OOC] '... but I don't... you know... dress up?'. You cackle gleefully.. You roll on the floor, laughing hysterically.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Jeeze, it roks! It's formal, black tie, and you get a blind date.'. You say [OOC] 'What did your date think of you? You didn't hurt him, I hope?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'We got on really well till I broke my arm.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'How would I hurt him?'. Sharp raises an eyebrow.. You say [OOC] 'Well...'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Do I appear to be a man eater?'. You say [OOC] '.. after you broke your arm, did he tend to your wounds, as a gentleman should?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'No, I told him I was going to the bathroom pre accident then never saw him again.'. You say [OOC] 'Damn! I just pictured the whole thing... you're at this ball, and then fall, and break you arm! That really, REALLY sucks.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'I know! It sux big time!'. Sharp claps at your performance.. You say [OOC] 'So... I hate to ask this.'. Sharp nods.. You say [OOC] 'Did you fall, and then everyone stopped dancing and looked at you?'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Nah, I was walking out of the bathroom, a guy helped me up, then I went outside and cried under a tree...'. Sharp says [OOC] 'I was swearing a lot too, before the crying.'. You frown disapprovingly.. You hug her.. You say [OOC] 'Sounds like my prom.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'I was hoping it was just a sprain.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'what happened?'. You say [OOC] 'After I got off the dance floor, someone asked me if I was epileptic.'. You say [OOC] 'Trust me, in time, it'll seem hysterical.'. Sharp smirks.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Yer a dag!'. You say [OOC] 'I saw a video of myself later.'. You say [OOC] 'Of myself dancing.'. You shudder at the horror and repress tears. . Sharp says [OOC] 'Can't you dance very well?'. You say [OOC] 'Holy Jesus.'. You say [OOC] 'I'm exceedingly white.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'That bad?'. You nod.. You say [OOC] 'I'm Irish you see, and I'm not into that 'Lord of The Dance' stuff.'. You beam delightedly at nothing in particular.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Michael Flatley is a wanker anyway.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'I have a bit of latin blood, that makes me dance well, love dancing.'. You say [OOC] 'But I did it! I brought a pretty hot girl with me too.... but she was a born again Christian...'. You say [OOC] '(big mistake) ... I took her to a comedy club afterwards.'.

You say [OOC] 'It was hysterical!'. Sharp says [OOC] 'Religion is ridiculous like that.'. You say [OOC] 'Well, religion or not - it was funny. She was a nice person and all - just not much fun.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'we done? I sooo gotta eat breakfast.'. You say [OOC] 'I don't dance well, but I sing well. Well, I like to sing.'. You nod at Sharp.. You wave goodbye to Sharp.. You thank Sharp heartily.. You say [OOC] 'Fun interview I think!'. You smile happily.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Singing is my secret dream.'. Sharp says [OOC] 'You think it went ok?'. You say [OOC] 'Ok... stop saying interesting stuff, and I can end it, ok?'. You poke her in the ribs.. You nod.. You say [OOC] 'I think it went great.'. You smile happily.. Sharp says [OOC] 'Alrighty! Thanks for the flattering opportunity.'. Sharp clutches you tightly in an overwhelming bearhug!. Krogenar chokes!. You dazzle Sharp with your smile.. You wave. EDITOR'S NOTE: [Later, Sharp asked me if I was a 'scruncher' or a 'folder'. She let me founder about stupidly for a bit, and then explained that some people 'scrunch' up their toilet paper, while other fold it. I had no idea people would dare 'fold' toilet paper.] [I'm a scruncher, for the record.] # Tuesday, March 12, 2002::21:03:18 :: Log Closed.
