This is the first time I've played this without dying of dysentery. Be kind, pick up hitchers. Bonus: IM between Lauren and me logging the game (edited because no one cares to read everything I write.) Jigga-funny to anyone who knows these characters; stupid otherwise:
- me: How are you this fine day, Lauren?
- Lauren: well, chemistry is kkilling me
- me: What's up with that?
I thought you dug "science."
- Lauren: well this is the one i dont really get
- me: So, you admit that your IQ is a paltry 187?
I'm not mad, just disappointed.
Maybe a Flash version of Oregon trail would help?
Check it real fast:
I'm playing the online Oregon Traill...
And "koavf" is driving with "lauren" shotgun.
"lunchbox" "pudge" and "gayson" in the back.
Literally 10 second into the drive, I get this message:
"lunchbox gets a small fruit candy stuck up a nostril."
I kid you not.
I could not make that up.
- Lauren: you're lying
- me: Seriously.
I just got:
"pudge gets a finger stuck in a pop bottle."
- Lauren: oh man now that's realistic for ya
- me: By the way, I will die of dysentery.
- Lauren: good.
i knew i could count on you.
- me: I always died of dysentery in Oregon Trail. ALWAYS.
I think it's God's way of giving me a hint.
"lauren says: 'Hey, check it out, I just found $100 on the ground!"
- Lauren: No wAY
- me: Next message:
"pudge stuck a hand out of the window while it was hailing and fractured a metacarpal."
- Lauren: hahahaha
- me: "lauren gets a hand rolled in a window. You'll never hear the end of this. Lose 30 minutes."
It's like REAL LIFE.
THIS GAME IS WATCHING ME!!!!!!!!!!11
- Lauren: HAHAHAHAHA
i just laughed so hard out loud
they know our personalities
keep a log of this game
- me: Well, I am. Here.
*sleeps in Grand Island, Nebraska.
You rested for 13 hours. Again, about right.
- Lauren: eh, it's usually 13.5
- me: Should we join a parking lot turtle race for $5?
- Lauren: uh YES
- me: Your turtle wins!
You won $125!
gayson gets giardia from drinking too much creek water.
This is creepy.
- Lauren: man my hand hurts ...you know...FROM THAT TIME YOU ROLLED THE WINDOW UP ON IT
- me: Oh noXORZ!
Hey, maybe you rolled up the window.
*never hears the end of it
- Lauren: yeah way to BLAME IT ON SOMEONE ELSE
- me: *never hears the end of it still.
We're in Boulder!
pudge asks a weird question during "Would you rather?", taking things too far again.
lunchbox gets purple nurple from another car member due to a music disagreement.
You pass some nasty roadkill. gayson cries. Everyone feels awkward.
A breath-holding competition is held while going through a tunnel and lauren passes out.
pudge claims to have seen Big Foot in the distance.
lauren gets a thigh burn on the hot leather seats

Just so I'm clear: I didn't post this because it's my civic duty, or because I thought I had to, or even to atone for the stupid things I post all the time. I posted this because it was moving and true and expresses things in a way I can't.

Everything, apparently. (Read with caution; I suspect a sociological fad.)
