    ... until you find out that the woman you were chatting with at the forum is a seventeen year old male with filed teeth, pimples and a nose ring, and the respected scientist is actually a comic-book salesman.

    When that happens, they usually won't go to meetings.

    Still, it can be jarring to find that one's online friend isn't exactly part of the same demographic as one may have expected.

    Isn't that the fun part?

    I think Trim disguises her gender remarkably effectively.

    Pcstru and BOR were very diplomatic when they discovered I am really a spaniel. But I did have some difficulty getting into the pub.

    Did one of the others say you were his helper spaniel?

    Did one of you three look like 'Babcat'? (asking for GabyDeWilde)

    Seriously weird at all events.

    I looked those two up. It's eight years since we heard from them. They have joined the ranks of the immortals.

    We could have Come Clean Day. Confession is good for the soul.

    Sure. Especially if you only have one soul.

    At UCSC there was a popular psychology professor whom we may call Dr Q. He taught big lower-division survey classes, and I worked as a TA for him one trimester. In lectures he started talking about a client-friend of his called "Esmé". An unusual Scottish given name it was, perhaps. Dr Q promised a visit from Esmé and we all, students and assistants alike, eagerly awaited the day of her visit.

    On the promised day the lecture hall was packed. Even people who weren't enrolled were there. Dr Q spoke for about 20 minutes, warming up the audience, then exited stage right to go get Esmé. After a minute, out walks Esmé... who turns out to be our good Dr Q, in full tv drag, wig and makeup, high fucking heels even, and proceeds to talk about her experiences in a campy falsetto...

    Having two souls can be a problem if they both are required to appear at the same time. I imagine the same is true for forum members with multiple handles.

    pcstru, BOR, tinker, etc. -- anyone up for a repeat? I'll be in London from May 4 to early May 8, and would enjoy meeting for lunch at The Lamb on either Monday, May 6, or Tuesday, May 7. Flexible on the time.

    If you can't make it, at least we'll be able to talk about you.
