Sad! You still get to take your other classes, though, right?

Well, I had to drop the belly dance one because it conflicted with my schedule for work, but (hopefully) the t'ai chi is still on.

I hereby decree that your t'ai chi class will go on as scheduled, and anyone who tries to go against my decree shall face my horrible wrath. So there.

Heh. See, this is why I should just never bother trying to plan on anything ever, because it always falls through. grawr

Salmonbot is an AIMbot that uses LJ's recently updated page and randomly connects two people who have updated their journals. The other sn always shows up as some variation of ____salmon. I've seen AngrySalmon, HarshSalmon (as appears here), DevourableSalmon, whatever. Add the adjective of your choice, it probably exists. It always starts off with a random opening line (usually something odd, although I've seen just 'hi'), and only one person gets that, then if you respond, it gets sent to the other, random person. Obviously, then, both parties (unless they have had a salmonbot in the past) are highly confused and usually fairly angry, what with the paranoia that runs rampant about the 'net these days.

Of course, if you ARE in on the joke, the salmonbot can be quite fun. Especially if it's one that is interactive. You'll get some weeeeeird comments from some of the bots, oh yes.
