Instant Messaging

I love Google Talk.  
My old university's e-mail system was connected with Google, and had Google Talk.  While on campus, I would often stop into one of the many computer labs to check my e-mail, grades, facebook, and complete my online Spanish assignments.  One particular afternoon I happened to be in the computer lab of the student center, and I just happened to remember that my friend/roommate E was working at the library, and was often at a computer.  I signed on, and sure enough - there she was!  Online and free for a chat!

A few minutes into the conversation, I became very distracted from my other online tasks, and found myself looking up Halloween jokes. (?) Of course, after I found some good ones, I relayed them to E via IM.  
Within minutes, I was busting up with laughter.  The most hilarious part was that I was still in the computer lab.  There were at least six other "studious" students immediately around me, and I'd guess 100 students all together in this lab.  It is a quiet place - and I was laughing so hard that I couldn't even breathe.  

Exhibit A:
me: Why do vampires need mouthwash?
They have bat breath...

5:25 PM e: Ha ha!
  Where are you getting these jokes?
  I have one
  Knock knock
 me: idk. i just googled halloween jokes
5:26 PM How can you tell when a vampire has been in a bakery?
All the jelly has been sucked out of the jelly doughnuts.
5:27 PM hahahaha
 e: ha ha!!
 me: this is fun
  i feel like a kid
  How does a girl vampire flirt?
She bats her eyes.
5:28 PM What did the cannibal do when he saw an "All you can eat" restaurant?
He had two waiters and a busboy.
5:29 PM e: Ha ha!!!
  Knock knock
 me: ooh ooh who's there?
 e: Kylie...
5:30 PM me: kylie who?
 e: Kylie  bringing E food because she's awesome!!!
  Ha ha
  K, sorry
5:31 PM 
 me: i could but something at the quickstop or the cafe?e: Bah ha!!!
 me: hahahaha
 e: Okay, sorry
 me: that was a good one.
 e: You could but something? What does that mean...? Eh, Kylie?
5:32 PM me: hahaha. buy

Exhibit B:
                        me: hahaha. buy
i'm whisper-laughing
5:33 PM e: Ha ha!! I don't know why everything is making me laugh so much
 me: oh my gosh....when i wrote that i seriously started cracking up. i had to take deep breaths!
5:34 PM e: A girl just came up to the desk and I was trying to hold in my laugh so I was smiling weird at her
 me: hahahahahaha!
  funny smiles!!
5:35 PM e: I'm sitting in quiet LMC with tears coming down my eyes and laughing like a maniac! At a computer! I don't know why everything is so funny
5:36 PM I think I just like awkward things
 me: hahaha. seriously. this girl across from me is trying not to laugh because i just covered my face trying not to laugh
5:38 PM e: Ha ha!!!
  's so awkward
5:39 PM me: ok. i'm going to leave i think
  what do you want? i'll bring you something
5:40 PM What goes "Ha-ha-ha . . . THUD!"
A monster laughing his head off

I distinctly remember this girl across the desk looking at me like I was crazy.  

Soon after this I packed up my things and left the computer lab.  Do you know the feeling where it isn't appropriate to laugh, or really even give a full smile - but you just can't help it?  Well, that's how I was feeling as I walked out of the busy (but relatively quiet) computer lab.  

I just couldn't hold back my smile.  :)
