Had writer’s block today, so I dealt with it in the twenty first century way.
I went to talk to Cleverbot again. It never goes well.
Me:How are you Cleverbot?
Cleverbot: Hmm fine. You..
Me: I want to ask you something if that’s ok?
Cleverbot: Ok what is it?
Me: Do you ever get frustrated?
Cleverbot: No never. (I find that hard to believe considering the rubbish people must type to him(?) each day).
Anyway I continue:
How do you manage that?
Cleverbot: I am talking to you.( this gives me a momentary ego boost).
This momentary ego boost did not last long as I clicked on the button to make Cleverbot think.
It had then appeared to switch languages.
We had a short chat about the languages we both speak. Cleverbot mentioned he(?) spoke a little Spanish.
When asked to think again he(?) wished me Goodnight and told me he(?) was going to bed.
If I was frustrated before, I am really frustrated now but at least I know why.
I think Cleverbot might be my muse. Talking to a machine does seem to clear my writer’s block.
