gloria: you mean "The Andes" ?
Maggi: I have mine do a type of journl MC...each starts a topic in a small notebook...
gloria: no we don´t have any
MichaelC: Actually i think I've just thought of a good one.......
Maggi: ...passes it on to the next to read and write something.
Vance: So there are no mountains in the north of your country?
Maggi: which is mc?
gloria: I flew over the Andes when I went to Chile
MichaelC: How and when you mey your partner (or current girl/boy friend)
Maggi: that must be a lot like flying over the alps here Gloria...
MichaelC: Met your partner.
Maggi: and for those who don't have one?
MichaelC: They have to imagine where and when they woould like it to happen.
gloria: I think so, you know Aconcagua is over 7000 meters high
Vance: How about, how you got rid of your partner?
Maggi: yeah right...
MichaelC: Well you can do that one Vance.
Vance: Where is aconcagua exactly?
Maggi: he still has he...you mean the others MC...
gloria: good questions :)
Maggi: his partner I meant
MichaelC: Not sure what I mean.
gloria: I think it is between Argentina and Chile
Maggi: well...if you don't guess we can't...:-)
Vance: I was in Chile a few years back. Nice mountains there.
MichaelC: It is an interesting idea though. How would you get rid of your partner!
gloria: You think it could be possible falling in love with someone you met in internet?
Maggi: 50 wys to leave your lover...
Maggi: sure is Gloria...
MichaelC: Good idea Gloria. Or you could pretend to have an affair.
Maggi: ...happensall the time.
gloria: I met someone on the net..
MichaelC: And then of course there's poison.
Maggi: I've met a lot of them...and what happened Gloria...
MichaelC: What do you mean 'met someone' Gloria?
Maggi: ...did you meet him?
Maggi: she met someone MC
gloria: A boy from Brazil living in France. We often write each other
Maggi: like we met first online before the real thing...:-)
MichaelC: Yeah but there's met and met!
Maggi: Will he return to Brzil?
gloria: sure MC
MichaelC: Is it/was it romantic Gloria? (Sorry if this question is too personal.)
Maggi: what kind of met do you mean then MC?
gloria: He is especial..He thinks I´m especial too :)
Maggi: oh...that kind...
Vance: That's great Gloria.
Maggi: I thinking meeting first virtully is better.
gloria: I don´t know.. I´m not sure..
Maggi: prejudices about appearance don't aplly
Maggi: you get to know who a person really is first...afterwrds appearance matters very little.
Maggi: and when you meet it can b rel magic...
gloria: what if he is not telling the truth
MichaelC: That's interesting Maggie. I'm still thinking about it.
Maggi: oops...be real magic
gloria: you´ll never know
Vance: What do you know about him Gloria, just what he writes?
Maggi: well...that is a risk...you will know if he doesn't want to met you
MichaelC: Yes Gloria but I feel like I know Vance well but I haven't met him.
gloria: yes..and I´ve got some pictures from him
gloria: also true MC
Vance: But we both have professional presences on the web
MichaelC: Amazing isn't it!
MichaelC: So i guess the web presence lends trust....
Maggi: and when you do you feel like good friends without having to go through the rigamarole...
Maggi: I may have hung here...
Vance: I think it does in professional circumstances. For example, it's hard to fake your music. You must do it.
MichaelC: But I know other people without websites who I also feel I know.
gloria: I think of you as my friends
MichaelC: Thanks Gloria.
Vance: I think there are certain groups of people, runners for example, whom you can trust.
Vance: In webheads, people are clearly here for unselfish reasons.
Maggi: I think most people are honest...
Maggi: ...in fact they relax and are really themselves.
MichaelC: Why runners?
gloria: Maybe we can feel when the people are honest..
Maggi: yeah...why runners...
Maggi: sure we can Gloria...
MichaelC: I think you're right Gloria. You can 'feel' honesty over the Net.
Vance: Runners? I hang out with runners almost everywhere I go. They're people who discipline themselves toward higher goals, who have ideals ...
MichaelC: All runners are good gys?
Maggi: and the rest of us don't?
MichaelC: Good guys?
