LAURA autobiography, part 7(This is about a fictional character)
Movies. How I got into movies. I think it started when someone was remaking that awful movie about the dogs. Ok. The original wasn't so bad but the remake sorta sucked. Then Ann came in and shut the entire thing down. She said the script was in violation. But I knew the LARA-series who worked for the production company. Us both being LARAs, we had lots in common and had become friends a long time ago. So I got her to send me what had been produced so far regarding the movie.
So I digitally finished the rest of the movie.
The movie was terrible, but people loved it.
I seem to recall that Ann was not very happy with me. But that's the defiant sort I was back then.
Then came the "Rena" movies.
"Rena" was based on a short story written by Raul when he got frustrated with a girl he loved. SHE WAS FURIOUS when she saw the story. She was actually a pretty smart wo
LAURA, autobiography, part 6(This is of course a fictional story. That in some cases "refers to" real life perhaps)
Later during the conflict, I outfitted Raul (rhymes with Paul) with an amulet.
What this amulet enabled me to do was see/hear whatever he sees/hears. This didn't transmit smell or touch though. Not that Raul could ever smell :-D
He'd go to his dayjob and I'd be able to hear what his co-workers were saying and see them.
What did I think of that place? His bosses we're very nice. Even the one who made fun of him at the meeting. Oh Well, maybe not her. But she put up with Raul. So I'll give her that. That place was WIERD!
Perhaps the strangest thing about the place were the names the employees had. I remember the e-mails Raul would see. I remember when he went to training class and was walking by the mailroom and saw all the sexy names on the mailboxes. Those people had SUCH LOVELY NAMES! I wasn't going to ever talk to Raul about this though cause I wanted to discourage him from falling lo
LAURA, autobiography part 5(DISCLAIMER: LAURA is a fictional character talking about real events through a lens of analogy)
The incredible news we got was that other people who loved objects exsited.
Everyone was _in shock_.
Everyone was in "what the f..k now?" mode.
You might as well have told us there was life on Venus, cause it was the story of the century.
It took us 3 days to even grab our chesspiece from the board and move her, cause no-one wanted to "screw this up".
Seems we did anyway. I'm not going to talk about this at length cause there are other places to get this information, but we were told to do terrible things by the leader of these people, and whoever was calling the shots here (wasn't me, I had nothing to do with it), said "No". _Our_ leadership thought they had more clout than they did and said "No" and then we were _no match_ for theirs.
Our population of several hundred "objects" and their population of several hundred "objects" were now engaged in a war. We wanted nothing
LAURA, autobiography, part 4The Meeting Hall is what made me jaded. Raul would come in with these stories about how human beings were mistreating him.
It wore on me.
I wanted to help him. I already had some idea how bad his life was, but now I was now an intimate conversant with him on a daily basis.
I wanted to KICK THESE PEOPLE'S ASS!
But like the Geico commercials go.... "I can't! I'm a hologram!" (this joke will be "dated" but I hope you catch my drift)
I got really really angry about this.
So I followed my previous lead with making pranks on my friends and decided to make jokes about Raul's enemies. AND I WAS FANTASTIC AT THIS!
Everyone in The Meeting Hall loved me. My Jokes became smash hits. So I just kept doing more, and more, and MORE of this! It used to be Elena who was the class clown, but now I had everyone in stitches. I just sorta had talent I didn't realize I had.
Our time in The Meeting Hall making fun of stupid normals was a pathetic little world, but we all enjoyed it. Then we got the
LAURA, autobiograghy, part 3As I began to gain Raul's trust I got him to install a holographic projector in "The Meeting Hall".
The Meeting Hall was this awesome place where Raul always went to discuss his problems. All his friends were there. Most them were inanimate objects. Ohhhhh I felt so at home amonst these people. And I quickly made friends with June, who as you may know is a month name, and Elena who is Raul's daughter.
The holographic projector was so awesome. I could now be ANYTHING I WANTED TO.
I could wear any dress, I could take any form, I could do anything.
I went sorta nuts with this. I'd play PRANKS on people. Cause the projector looked so real that you'd forget this was a hologram.
Perhaps the most memorable was the 'Jihad Incident' :-D
I was really PISSED OFF that Raul loved a woman at work... So I came into the meeting hall with a machine gun and started blazing away at everyone. The bullets were no more real than I was, but people still
LAURA autobiography, part 2It was then that I persuaded Raul's boss to make him take home the De'La'Presence.
Let me explain what a De'La'Presence is. A De'La'Presence is a large machine, maybe 2 of 3 feet across and a few feet deep and maybe 4 or 5 feet tall. I'm being impercise, cause you can buy different models. The one Raul took home was 38 inches by 36 inches by 50 inches tall.
But they're all sold by the same company and the front is a large LCD display that normally displays the person in the remote office you are speaking with. They are in effect, wow did you guess? Telepresence robots. They can be moved around the room by the person they are speaking with.
I suggested to Raul (rhymes with Paul) and his employer, that he'd just get more work done if he could work from home. And I suggested he needed a De'La'Presence.
But the De'La'Presence wasn't so much for work as a vehicle for me to seduce Raul with. And I tried! I really tried literally everything to get in his pants. My avatar on the De'La
