Does this Cocophone work over here? Is anyone out there? Maybe I should switch to the normal walkie...

Ben, are you awake?

Yes, I'm awake... Hang on, this login screen is irritating me...

Well, I'm glad someone is-- okay.

Do you see this?!?!?

I thought the point was to get AWAY from Dharma technology, not imitate it. Namaste my ass. Mikhail must have been pretty drunk to think that would actually amuse me.

Anyway. So where exactly are you, now?

That logo is... erm. Anyway.

I'm still where I was going earlier. He went to sleep... at least, I think he sleeps--he's retired for the evening if nothing else. I have some quiet time to myself, so I thought I would see if you were still awake. Is everything the same as I left it today?

Other than our people proving themselves to be incompetent with any technology made this decade, things have been uneventful.

So you saw him already, then. And? Your report?

Why am I not surprised? How is it that I'm more competent than they are with new things?

I did see him. I can report that he loved your cookies. You know Ben, he was very pleased. I'm hoping maybe he'll be ready to see you soon.

Date: 2010-09-25 05:45 am (UTC)

Yes, really. No promises, but I'm hoping to have some good news for you when I get back tomorrow.

How about you simply turn around right now and come back.

Date: 2010-09-25 05:52 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I can't. He wants to talk to me in the morning.

Date: 2010-09-25 05:53 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Tell him I already have you scheduled to talk to ME in the morning.

Date: 2010-09-25 05:58 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I'll be back as soon as I can get back, Ben.

I'm allowed a little wishful thinking, aren't I...?

...Did you like your cookie?

Date: 2010-09-25 06:03 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I loved my cookie. I actually saved a little bit of it for later, and, well, it's later.

Date: 2010-09-25 06:04 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Good... So when can I expect you home back?

Date: 2010-09-25 06:07 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Provided that he doesn't want me to accompany him somewhere, I'll probably meet with him for a while at first light, then come back after that. Midday, evening at the latest, barring unforeseen circumstances.

I am cheered to get an actual answer out of you.

It happens once in a while.

Date: 2010-09-25 06:15 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
...Wait. Why did he drag you all the way back out there only to make you stay overnight to have another conversation with him??

Date: 2010-09-25 06:18 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Because that's the way he operates. You just don't question it after a while.

...I'm going to do my best to reserve the (J) rant this prompted for another time, as I'm curled up in my big mostly empty bed and don't particularly want to fill it with thoughts of him.

Juliet says hello. Doesn't she? Don't you, Juliet? Yes, yes you do... Say hello, Mister Alpert... Yesss....

Date: 2010-09-25 06:26 am (UTC)

Hello Juliet. Give her a pet for me. And don't make her hiss!

I think I'm going to pull up a patch of grass and call it a night. The sooner I sleep, the sooner I wake up and then I'll be back.

Date: 2010-09-25 06:29 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I guess I can't argue with that...

Sweet dreams, then...

Hope to see you in mine.

Goodnight, Ben. Sleep tight.
