Last night I was bored and decided to spoil the next two week's worth of Buffy The Vampire Slayer
storyline for my friend Kate, because I'm a bit of a bastard
and I sometimes to that kind of thing. After sending the spoiler
s in question via a text message
, I recieved an angry
phone call, which then turned into a slightly more calmed down and normal conversation
. Every so often there was a noise
on the line
like someone picking up and putting down a telephone
. Considering the somewhat drug
-related nature of the conversation at times, we started to make jokes about people tapping the phone and how much trouble we'd be in if that happened.
All fine and normal so far apart from a slight problem with my cordless phone or the phone system, we're not sure which.
The conversation progressed onto what books
we're both currently reading, which is when Kate mentioned The Wasp Factory
by Iain Banks
. A little while later the conversation ended and I went back to E2
and then I saw it. Under "New Writeups
" was a node entitled The Wasp Factory
, written by SharQ
Now we have an amazing coincidence. Still, though, nothing to worry about.
I then went to SharQ
's home node
to send him a friendly
message explaining what had happened. Out of curiosity
, I scrolled down to see what kind of person I was dealing
with. It all came together when I saw where he lives. A short bus
ride away from my house
Now I'm starting to panic, as it all started to make sense. That guy was really a figment of that guy's imagination, that other guy was a replicant, another completely unrelated guy was dead all along and this guy was tapping my phone, listening in for good node material.
I'm gonna run some water
in the background whenever I talk on the phone from now on. Watch his number
of new writeups drop
Now a daylog thanks to Fruan
pointing this out to me in my sleep-deprived state.
