msn messenger (beta)

my boss just downloaded the latest messenger for msn. i typically use msn messenger at work... when i remember to log in.

he's going nuts with all the new things. i'll get like 3 or 4 "winks" in a row... and "nudges"

nudges make me want to throw up a little bit. it's like the "buzz" in yahoo messenger. makes the screen all shaky.

they've got this weird thing, though where some of the smileys and winks and such, you have to pay for. who the fuck is going to pay for them? they're insane.

ahhh, a night of solitude for me. leftovers for dinner, books to read, pikmin to play. not enough time!!!!

I've never used an IM program but have been wanting to try one. Which is the best one to use?

What is he saying before he nudges you? I mean are you at least getting some dirty jokes out of it or something?

I wanna play Pikmin 2. I haven't had a chance to play the gamecube more than 4 times since we bought it. Someone, I won't say any names (starts with "M" and ends with "ichael") is a gamecube hog.

I think I'm going to start on my Christmas cards,ummm...I mean get a massage from Phillipe...:)

People WILL pay for smileys and winks and such -- people are insane. I mean, I've paid $2 for ring tones that sound like crap when I can download a great-sounding MP3 for less than $1. People will pay.

I just downloaded the new msn, and I don't recall seeing winks and nudges. I better look when I get home. I'm stuck in a time warp, too, I guess.

Glad you got out of cooking Christmas dinner.

J: trillian, huh? i'll have to check it out. after i get my new system. i already have way too many programs downloaded on my system.

D: i don't have that handwriting option. damn them!

K: according to jeanette, trillian's the way to go.

S: i wouldn't even attempt to try to write anything without a mouse. although, in my opinion, the accupoint is much better than the touchpad.

N: nope. no dirty jokes. it's unfortunate. stupid sexual harrassment laws :P good thing mike's outta town, now you can play pikmin. wooty woot! :) how was that massage, btw? :P muwahaha.

J: what does "dial up" mean? :P muwahaha. j/k.

Jer: why? i don't get it. you're a marketing guru. explain it to me. but in little words that i understand :P

AB: what's so sad about that, huh? huh? :P

P: i don't have the handwriting thing :( so i guess there are some glitches still? i'm too lazy to reinstall.
