i can't decide whether this is a stupid thing to do, or the coolest

(prologue: I am house-sitting for Kate, my girlfriend-at-college, for the next week. Ten minutes ago I sat down at her computer and logged on to her user proile, which apparently carries with it an auto-sign-on MSN Instant Messenger. No sooner had MSNIM come on than I received this.

belly-button lint says:
hey you, whare are you?
belly-button lint says:
where*
Kate says:
Well
Kate says:
I suppose you could say I'm in Spain
belly-button lint says:
?
Kate says:
it would be true, except for the identifier.
Kate says:
Because Kate IS in Spain
Kate says:
But this isn't Kate.
belly-button lint says:
?
belly-button lint says:
You have totally lost me....oh
belly-button lint says:
what?
Kate says:
I'm house sitting for kate
Kate says:
making sure her cats don't overthrow the government
Kate says:
Yes, she is in Spain.
belly-button lint says:
then who is this?
Kate says:
Ahh. The questions already begin to fly
Kate says:
It's James
Kate says:
you?
belly-button lint says:
ah, this is Richard... I thought she was leaving next week (**EDITOR'S NOTE: THE NAME "RICHARD" CAUGHT ME QUITE BY SURPRISE. I HAVE SPOKEN WITH SOME OF YOU ABOUT THIS PERSON AND HIS PARTICULAR PLACE IN KATE'S LIFE AT THE MOMENT. THOSE OF YOU I HAVE NOT, PLEASE ASK SOMEBODY ELSE TO FILL YOU IN**)
belly-button lint says:
hello james
Kate says:
Oh!
Kate says:
Hi Richard
Kate says:
Well, she's not leaving at the same time as her parents, because, well
Kate says:
they're on opposite sides of the country.
belly-button lint says:
very interesting, right
belly-button lint says:
that explains it
Kate says:
So her folks left on Thursday. She leaves Monday, i think
belly-button lint says:
that sounds right
Kate says:
Hopefully her tonsillitis will have cleared up.
belly-button lint says:
yep
Kate says:
Generally she acts pretty brave about being sick...you can never tell how bad it really is. When I found out she was being told to skip school, i worried quite a bit.
belly-button lint says:
she does seem like the bravado stuff
Kate says:
Not so much bravado. She just doesn't make a big deal out of things.
belly-button lint says:
so your house sitting for the fam?
Kate says:
In a manner of speaking
belly-button lint says:
feeding the cats..
Kate says:
My duties are to sleep here, get the mail, feed the cats and throw a party if I want. I don't think they even expect me to clean
belly-button lint says:
sweet deal
Kate says:
Yesterday I had four drunken naked girls in her parents' jacuzzi. We almost broke a champagne flute
Kate says:
lucky me.
belly-button lint says:
sounds like your having a blast... getting prepared for the big USC parties
belly-button lint says:
practicing if you will
Kate says:
Oh, in a huge way. Mopped Courvoisier off the hardwood floors the rest of the night.
Kate says:
we shorted out one of the televisions, but i plan on buying one that looks exactly like it.
belly-button lint says:
thats the wrong place for the courvoisier...
Kate says:
Well, originally it was courvoisier that had been inside a fourteen-year-old girlfriend of some guy, but she deposited it on the floor. Some people don't take too kindly to Rohypnol
Kate says:
oh and we hotboxed the cats, which was hilarious.
belly-button lint says:
i always did parties at other peoples houses, we'de lock everything that could be moved into one room, and waste a roll of film on how thing had been set up....
belly-button lint says:
enlighten me, hotbox?
Kate says:
Oh, you put 'em in a kennel with a bong
Kate says:
Funny shit.
Kate says:
Anyway. i'm assuming you won't be telling Kate about any of this?
belly-button lint says:
reminds me of Gringo, my friends dog and our habit of putting beer in his water bowl
belly-button lint says:
you got my word of honor
belly-button lint says:
though i probably wont be able to hold in the amazing news of meeting you, in a matter of speaking...
belly-button lint says:
does IM constitute a meeting?
Kate says:
I think that once all these new communication media have settled into society, we'll have a notion of what it really means
Kate says:
I consider us introduced but not met.
belly-button lint says:
that works
Kate says:
But we'll meet again
Kate says:
Don't know where, don't know when
Kate says:
*violins*
belly-button lint says:
sounds good. I'm sure youll come visit some time in the relatively near future
Kate says:
Probably. Right now my main concerns are getting the sperm stains off of Kate's bedside table. I shouldn't have let those two guys use her bed...I don't even know them.

What the hell have I just done?
