To Red: Awesome! Thanks. That’s very reasonable. I’ll check it out.
She gave me the information to a reasonably-priced naturopath.
To Orange: Yay! Thanks for being flexible. What time would you guys like to come over? 6:30 maybe?
We were arranging a couple's "date."
To Blue: There’s a blue hair staining one of the shelves in the refrigerator. How does that even happen?
Lol! My husband regularly dyes his hair blue and that stuff gets everywhere. Everywhere! The shower, the sinks, the toilet, the counters, the walls, his pillowcases, his towels, and yes, even the refrigerator, all get blue stains!
To Yellow: We watched a Next Gen episode with Q. Now we’re about to watch The Hangover because [redacted]’s never seen it. *yellow smiley emoticon* That event sounds awesome! Hope you’re having fun.
Yellow and her husband were supposed to join us for that couple's "date" but her husband double booked them without her knowledge, so she asked me what she was missing out on.
To Green: Feel better?
Discussing the outcome of a game the soccer team we both follow had just played.
To Yellow & Orange: Hi ladies! My editing work is going much better than expected. I’m up for meeting for donut day this week if you are. Could do Thurs or Fri morning.
This one seems self-explanatory.
To Blue: Ok.
Not sure about this one. Probably a response to him asking me to pick him up from work.
To Red: Of course! I'll bring them with tomorrow night.
I lent her some items for a Halloween costume.
To Purple: I need to sleep for approximately 10 hours now. I'm beat. Haha.
The soccer team I follow had just played the most epic playoff game ever. It was genuinely emotionally exhausting.
To Yellow & Orange: Haha, adorable!
A response to the picture Yellow sent of her Halloween costume.
To Yellow & Orange: You look so cute as a banana!
Yes, still talking about the costume. Yellow went as a banana, her husband as a gorilla.
To Indigo: Yay! Let me know if you want to ride with us. :)
Discussing a bonfire we were both going to the following weekend.
To Yellow & Orange: Ladies, are we still on for dinner and a movie tomorrow night?
To Black: It's just off Sunset near the PCH. It's on the shorter side but it's a good hike.
Discussing a hike we were going on.
To Blue: No thanks.
He asked me if I wanted him to bring me something home for dinner.
To Indigo: Just trying to help you out! Haha.
I believe we were discussing deploying a decoy for her in her seat at work so she could nap under the desk. I had suggested that we give it a recorded tape that was motion sensitive and would say things like, "You look great in that shirt today, Suzy!" whenever someone walked past.
To White: Okay, I'm heading out! My phone says 25 minutes but it's frequently a lying liar who lies.
I was heading over to her house. The map app on my phone doesn't know how to deal with LA traffic.
To Indigo & Brown: You guys are cracking me up!
Talking about something very weird we saw at the bonfire. Lots of alien jokes were involved.
To Indigo & Brown: Well, yeah, he doesn't want to have another one at 60.
I don't recall what prompted this conversation, but I'm pretty sure we were talking about a guy having a kid at 60.
To Blue: I'm sorry baby.
I think he was upset about being stuck at work super late for like the millionth time in a row.
To Blue: He could have given you a piggy back ride to the garage. *yellow wink emoticon*
Joking about one of his co-workers carrying him to his car, although I'm not sure why.
To Yellow & Orange: Either happy hour, beach clean up or coffee would work for me. *yellow smiley emoticon*
In the end we decided on happy hour.
To Indigo: That's the plan eventually!
I don't remember. I think we were talking about marketing my next book.
To Blue: Our sound bath thing is at 12. I think it lasts an hour. We'll probably at least grab a coffee or some food or a drink or something before we drive back. So I'm thinking maybe 5-6 p.m. but I don't know for sure.
He asked me about my plans with some friends that weekend.
To Red: Lol. I got that.
She made a joke (which I got) and then explained it to me. Probably much funnier to us than it is to you, dear reader.
To Pink: Thanks!
She wished me a good time with my brother, who was soon to visit.
To Gray: Oh cool, it's finally opening! We should def plan a trip there.
Discussing a new movie theater that just opened in town.
To Green: Boring, uninspired, and lackluster? Sounds like a Klinsmann-coached game.
Me complaining about the coach of the U.S. Men's National Soccer Team. I'm not a fan.
To Blue: *purple demon emoticon* Speed demon.
He told me to drive safely. I pretended that I wouldn't.
To Blue: Yeah. It's intense.
Pretty sure I'm talking about soccer again.
