Jul. 15th, 2003 @ 11:55 pm Agent 00Sort
Obviously I’m being paid by the word, and thus in true Dickens’ fashion, I must write about completely random side topics that have nothing to do with the main story of Muffin’s life.

It was a dark and stormy night… Well it wasn’t actually stormy, but it was indeed dark, as night has a habit of doing. Agent 00Sort was off enjoying a quiet evening at home after a long day of work. During his day job as a programmer, Agent 00Sort, was busy investigating the extremely difficult(and possibly unsolvable) problem of NP completeness in the context of sweeping for mines on a grid using his computer. The project that he was working on for the evening is a training video for field agents. By combining DDR and anime, field agents will hone their physical dexterity, as well as in their ability to function in foreign environments.

Yet somehow in this quiet evening, 00Sort was contacted for a meeting by the mysterious L(also known by her alias dilly. The agent had contact with L in various forms, but they never had a face to face meeting before. L was quite busy attending a national leadership conference, but she took some time out of her schedule to arrange for a personal meeting between the two associates of half a decade. The time and place of the meeting was chosen: Dave and Busters at White Flint Mall at 21:30.

Ensuring that he remain inconspicuous (lest others find about his secret agent status), 00Sort switched to standard civilian clothes before heading out. Thus having insured that he won’t attract any undesired notice, he hopped into Mahou, his preferred method of transportation. After arriving at the decided upon location for the meeting, 00Sort adopted the name Lee for use when dealing with the unsuspecting populace. He spent several minutes scouting around the crowd to ensure that the meeting location was actually secure. Seeing nothing but a group of young adults drinking and playing arcade games, the conclusion was made that there was no threat to the meeting.

After the area was deemed secure, L appeared with a bodyguard and greeted 00Sort. She then dismissed her bodyguard, and they looked for the stereotypical dark corner by the bar to have a conversation. Each of them pulled out their respective biometric scanners to verify the identity of the other. L had brought the popular, Canon Digital Elph, which in its life in the field had managed to acquire many battle wounds which were repaired by a pair of rubber bands. 00Sort used his more obscure, but every bit as functional, Minolta Dimage Xi to take these scan results. Thus they were able to verify their respective identities so that they may continue to actual conversation.

Having had many dealings with L, but never actually meeting in person was an interesting experience for 00Sort. Since he had many conversations with L previously there was much uncertainty about how this conversation was going to progress. Drinks were ordered, though both of them ordered their drinks “virgin, not alcoholic” in true responsible agent style to ensure that they had their full mental facilities for business and driving, as well as to avoid any additional asian glow from the effects of alcohol to attract undesired attention from the general populace. After a bit of conversation, 00Sort’s concerns faded, as they quickly moved the discussion into agent business. Of course, this conversation was done in code, so any random passers by would only hear topics such as cars, anime, computers, and other such common everyday conversation.

A joint mission with B (otherwise known as Barry), another member of L’s division was being planned. Details require form EL-337 to be filled in triplicate and returned to the agency before access is granted. B was introduced, and they discussed many potential ways of accomplishing the plan. The overall strategy was developed, and will be implemented in the future when the time calls for it. Finally they used their biometric scanners to do a combined scan that could be used verify each other’s existence in future interactions. Thus having conducted their business, the group left their separate ways.

And now, perhaps back to the Muffin chronicles.

... my spies inform me that my archenemy, the nefarious L, has made contact with 00Sort while on assignment, an eventuality that I had not foreseen. The two were kept on opposite coasts quite deliberately, for their cooperative relationship could well prove a danger to my plans. Still, the complication is easily taken in stride, and I have already set agents into motion to turn this development to my advantage. Soon L and the whole world, will be mine!

*gasp* So there were plants for the mysterious V all around Dave and Busters... I knew something seemed suspicious about the white guys playing Pump it Up, the asian girl riding the bull, and the gay couple playing skeeball. Then again, our waiter seemed oddly close and paying attention to what we needed. And all this time we thought it was good service.

I, however, will sell out to the highest bidder, and have no problems working for a former enemy. As long as I'm provided with suitable compensation. Besides, the kitty is cute... How could I not trust the kitty?

Ahhhh... the secret weapon reveals itself. Come, kitty, and work your seductive magic on this weak-minded male... Look at the kitty, 00Sort. The kitty is your friend. You will obey the kitty...

You'd rather more adventures of me rather than the dirty details of Muffin's life?

The secretive and alluring life of agent 00 Sort and his beautiful partners in crime or the daily routine of a breakfast pastry. Hmm. Let me ponder this.
