Agnol117: Hello again. (#224.)
Agnol117: How many more fellow Rabbits made it in before 10?
HABIT: WE'LL SEE, WON'T WE.
Agnol117: I do hope so.
Agnol117: Oh?So how's the weather wherever you're at?
Agnol117: Nice. Snow here, it sucks.
HABIT: STORE YOUR MEAT IN IT.
Agnol117: I use it for soda and beer, actually. I save space in my fridge that way.
Agnol117: About the only use I can find for snow is that it makes Christmas lights look cool.
HABIT: GREAT TO STRANGLE.
Agnol117: Yeah, I would suppose so. Never tried it myself. I prefer my machete. (Though right now it's only really useful as a digging tool. Really need it sharpened again.)Also, should I address you as HABIT, or do you prefer Mr. HABIT?
HABIT: DON'T ADDRESS ME.
Agnol117: Fair enough.
Agnol117: One of my friends (who apparently didn't make the cut) would like to interview you. What shall I tell him?
Agnol117: I'm asking him.He says he's curious.
Agnol117: Again, I'll ask.
Agnol117: He says tonight, tomorrow night, or Wednesday, after 11:30 PM Eastern. At your convenience.
Agnol117: I suppose he did mean that, yes.
Agnol117: Shall I have him contact you directly, or would you prefer me to be an intermediary?
HABIT: THAT WOULD BE FINE.
Agnol117: That is a very nonspecific answer, but I suspect that's intentional.If he can contact you via Gmail chat, I'll have him do that, otherwise I'll have him give me a list of questions.
Agnol117: He says he's attempting to chat with you, but that he's not getting anything. If it helps, his Gmail username is [REDACTED].
Agnol117: His first question, since he can't get it to work is "What should I call you?"
HABIT: YOU KNOW MY NAME.
Agnol117: He says he prefers to be called Agnol.If it's all the same to you.
Agnol117: "Then am I to assume that HABIT is your name?"
"Because that feels more like a title. Or perhaps an article of priestly attire."
HABIT: I'M MANKIND'S BAD HABIT.
Agnol117: "Again, that seems more like a title than a name. I've been known to go by CXVII, but that's a title, too."
Agnol117: "Either way, moving on. How many applicants for the trials were there?"
Agnol117: "I meant how many people emailed you, not how many were chosen. I mean, I submitted and application, but I wasn't chosen. So there must have been more than two hundred thirty-one."
Agnol117: "And was their any real criteria for choosing who of the applicants was and was not chosen?"
PERHAPS THERE WERE.
Agnol117: "Are you willing to share any of these criteria?"
Agnol117: "Fair enough.""As of this point, how many have been disqualified."
HABIT: AROUND 70.
Agnol117: "So, you seem to be having some problems with technology?"
HABIT: BRILLIANT DEDUCTION.
Agnol117: "Also, you mentioned that you're HUMANITY'S BAD HABIT [sic]. Does this mean that you do not predate civilization?"
"Eh, I'm not a fan of twitter."
HABIT: IT'S UP TO DEBATE.
Agnol117: "See, I think you and I have somewhat similar feelings about Twitter, although probably for very different reasons."
"Well, if you predate humanity, then you must have been something else's BAD HABIT [sic] at one point."
"May I call you Mr. H? It sounds friendlier, and has less misplaced capital letters."
HABIT: WHATEVER YOU WISH.
AGNOL117: "Mr. H, were you, at any point, a BAD HABIT [sic] of anything other than humanity?"
Agnol117: "Have you appeared on camera in any of the EverymanHYBRID videos?"
HABIT: I'VE BEEN EVERYWHERE.
Agnol117: "In the interest of clarification: Have we ever seen a physical appearance by you in the videos?"
Agnol117: "Any chance that you might give us a hint as to when we may have seen you?"
HABIT: ABSOLUTELY NOT.
Agnol117: "Eh, I figured."
"Might you tell us which videos we should look in? (Forgive me is this is unnecessarily redundant)"
Agnol117: "Is HABIT the only name you're known by? (disregarding my calling you Mr. H)"
HABIT: I DON'T KNOW WHAT PEOPLE CALL ME.
HABIT: I AM LEAVING.
Agnol117: The same to you.
Agnol117: You said you were dissapointed with the videos.
Agnol117: Was it becuase of shitty vid quality...or how easy people gave everything up?
HABIT: DID YOU MAKE IT?
Agnol117: Yes, I made it.
HABIT: THEN IT IS OF NO CONCERN TO YOU, NOW IS IT.
Agnol117: Did you get those lovely manners from Corenthal or Maryann?
HABIT: YOU HAVE NO IDEA.
Agnol117: No, no I don't.
HABIT: YOU THINK ALL OF THIS HANGS ON THE DOCTOR.
AND HIS DAMNED WIFE
Agnol117: Than what? It hangson those two Creatures? Those fitness-vlog boys?
Agnol117: Surely not us RABBITS?
Agnol117: That means?
HABIT: TIME, MY BOY. TIME.
IT WILL MAKE SENSE.
Agnol117: I suppose wait I must. Hope you enjoyed how much some people went through for your Trial.
Agnol117: I'll take that as a bit of contemplation, if not a yes.
