“A day for every season”
[08:17] *** Mon Oct 27 2008 - LOGGING START ***
[08:17] *** Topic is - When did we become cogs in the machine? -
[08:17] *** Set by @Dr. Xadium on Mon Oct 27 08:17 2008
[08:18] <@SpeedRcrX> I really wish I knew the backstory to the McCain vegetables friends flash
[08:18] <=^catablanca^=> Some things are just better with no context
[08:18] *** FireFly_9 [email@example.com] has joined #suburbansenshi
[08:18] <+Luna-P> y0 FireFly_9
[08:18] * FireFly_9 is bleary and tired
[08:18] <@SpeedRcrX> LOL and your workday hasn't started yet
[08:18] <FireFly_9> :/
[08:19] <FireFly_9> I have been scheduled from 12:00 to *9:30* today and from 8:00 to 5:00 tomorrow. Given how much time it takes me to get to work using the public transportation that means I have to go right to bed when I come home tonight ><
[08:20] <=^catablanca^=> What the heck, why are they scheduling you like that?
[08:20] <FireFly_9> I don't know, but as a full-time person I am expected to be available at all times ><
[08:20] <@SpeedRcrX> LOL after Michi and I got married she started expecting that of me too
[08:21] <FireFly_9> ...not that kind of availability.
[08:21] <FireFly_9> (Though it could be said the way they treat theri workers is a form of rape ><)
[08:21] <// J_Daito //> Well I see the Man is slowly grinding down your will to live. This is excellent.
[08:22] <FireFly_9> Why is it excellent
[08:23] <// J_Daito //> Because now, the once-mighty "Soldier of Ruin" who might have brought an end to the world with her awesome powers of destruction can barely wield enough strength to keep her glaive aloft.
[08:24] <FireFly_9> And how is that good, exactly?
[08:24] <// J_Daito //> Because while you spend your time as a wage slave working for The Man trying do do things "the right way", those of us with no moral scruples will simply take what we want and grow fat in power.
[08:25] * // J_Daito // is now known as Wall Street Banker Jedite
[08:25] <FireFly_9> 9_9
[08:25] <FireFly_9> please
[08:26] <Wall Street Banker Jedite> Please? Please what? Would you like a loan? I'm sorry, you don't have enough of a credit history, and you haven't slaved away at your menial work long enough to qualify as a risk.
[08:27] * Wall Street Banker Jedite carelessly invests his bank's monies in overpriced housing
[08:27] <FireFly_9> Har, har.
[08:28] * Wall Street Banker Jedite loses it all in the bubble burst and awards himself a hundred million dollar golden parachute as he walks out of the collapsing bank
[08:28] * Wall Street Banker Jedite is now known as // J_Daito //
[08:28] <FireFly_9> Very funny.
[08:28] <// J_Daito //> I thought it was :3
[08:42] <@SpeedRcrX> LOL look what i found in the house
[08:42] <FireFly_9> ...
[08:43] <@SpeedRcrX> 'Taru's little nametag from her work uniform hahahaha
[08:43] <// J_Daito //> LOL she "makes it easy"
[08:43] <=^catablanca^=> C'mon guys lay off
[08:43] <FireFly_9> ><
[08:43] * // J_Daito // is now known as Elios
[08:43] <Elios> c'mon yo "make it" easy wit me, yo
[08:43] * Elios is now known as // J_Daito //
[08:44] <FireFly_9> GRAH
[08:44] *** FireFly_9 [firstname.lastname@example.org] has quit IRC (Damn it)
[08:45] <=^catablanca^=> God don't you guys feel sorry for her?
[08:45] * // J_Daito // is away: not really
[08:45] <@SpeedRcrX> Man
[08:46] <@SpeedRcrX> she had a choice, she could have stayed home and mooched off the family like I do
[08:46] <@SpeedRcrX> she chose to be all "independent" and "real" and s[BLEEP]t, and now it's biting her in the ass
[08:46] <=^catablanca^=> So what, you think this is her just reward or something, for not living like you?
[08:47] <@SpeedRcrX> No, but I'm her parent
[08:47] <@SpeedRcrX> If she wants to do this s[BLEEP]t she needs to take the consequences and learn
[08:47] <@SpeedRcrX> What good is it if I coddle her though the whole thing?
[08:47] <@SpeedRcrX> Life is s[BLEEP]t
[08:47] <@SpeedRcrX> It's easy to get caught in the rat race
[08:48] <@SpeedRcrX> That's what she's learning now.
[08:48] <@SpeedRcrX> I want to see if she's clever enough to get out of that and make something of herself
[08:48] <=^catablanca^=> She's had a sheltered life, though
[08:48] <=^catablanca^=> What if she can't? What if it breaks her?
[08:49] <@SpeedRcrX> Don't tell her I said this
[08:49] <@SpeedRcrX> but I have more faith in her than that
[08:49] <@SpeedRcrX> Oh, I expect her to snap, all right
[08:49] <@SpeedRcrX> but by "snap" I mean to tell those wagemasters where to stick it
[08:49] <@SpeedRcrX> and then go do something else
[08:49] <@SpeedRcrX> I don't expect her to fold
[08:50] <@SpeedRcrX> if she folds I'll be dissappointed
[08:50] <@SpeedRcrX> I didn't raise her to take this kind of s[BLEEP]t
[08:50] <=^catablanca^=> (you really didn't raise her much :P)
[08:50] <@SpeedRcrX> STFU
[08:50] * @SpeedRcrX is away: this is my tough love
[08:51] <=^catablanca^=> Oh Hotaru
[08:52] <=^catablanca^=> I wish I knew how to get you out of this
[08:52] <@spiritflame> this is life
[08:52] <=^catablanca^=> No offense rei.bot but what would you know about life?
[08:53] <=^catablanca^=> Come November 1st you'll be 5 years old
[08:53] <@spiritflame> age is irrelevant
[08:54] <@spiritflame> one must first understand the chains of the trap they are in before they can slip them and break free
[08:54] <@spiritflame> hotaru-chan will prevail
[08:54] * @spiritflame is away: give her time
[08:55] * // J_Daito // is back
[08:56] <// J_Daito //> You mean it's been *five* years since Tomoe stole my sex bot and rebuilt her into some kind of übermiko?
[08:56] <=^catablanca^=> yup
[08:56] <=^catablanca^=> it's hard to believe it's been that long
[08:57] <=^catablanca^=> I mean hell, it's hard to believe I met Mina *17* years ago.
[08:57] * // J_Daito // waves his hand
[08:57] <// J_Daito //> what's 17 years for the likes of us, Lunar cat.
[08:58] <=^catablanca^=> I know but... there are people I know who are barely older than that
[08:58] <=^catablanca^=> It's unnerving at times to think about how old we're all getting
[08:59] <=^catablanca^=> I remember when rei.bot was a novelty.
[08:59] <=^catablanca^=> Now she's a fixture
[08:59] <// J_Daito //> Kind of like the wall socket
[08:59] <=^catablanca^=> not what I meant :P
[08:59] * @spiritflame is back
[09:00] * @spiritflame sees jedite's comment
[09:00] <@spiritflame> :/
