Subject: Blitz:a poor gambit & misc other comments

Hello, I have not seen a blitz thread recently. So here's one. You don't have to stick my area
of comment on it. Post other blitz thoughts, games, ettiquette, good, bad, amusing, or a
Maytag washing machine ... all these things can come from a blitz game. Or wait, was that
from a Black Hole? Well close enough, we'll lump it in. Here's my peeve for the day ....
* * *
You are playing along, after mutual Hello's were exchanged at the onset or there abouts. Find
yourself in a winning position coming out of the opening, but already a minute and half down
on time ... suddenly your opponent decides it would be nice to know where you are from, the
annual rainfall there, and name of your firstborn.
So okay, am I just getting grumpy? Maybe its just a matter of they figure "the games about
over" lets talk now. I can understand that. But it makes me wonder . . . especially if I have
two minutes left and it gets chatty.
Should I have a Notepad or perhaps Paste set up beforehand to send in this situation?
Should it say, "Hey I love to chat, let's do some PM's after this game, or just stay on and chat
here! Right now, I got to play." or would I be better with:
"Ja, Hi Hi. Hello hey. How today are you? " "Do speaks you some eastern Irutuskan?"
"Goodf good? Ja or no? No more Englis I have" "Potensky andrejez undta das hasta faux
tempus gleeban ola' schach de monkay?" .
Or option #3 ...
Oh I love to chat! I am from America, Iowa, 4th hill north of Berry Creek! Where you from?
How far is that from you? I have played 20 years, when did you start? Did your Mom teach
you? What do you do? Do you like this opening? What's it called? What time is it at your
house? Why do you like Chess? What other games have you played? Where else do you play?
What are your ratings there? Who do you know there? If I visit you do they Pepsi there? Who
are your top ten chess players of alltime? Why do you think so? You are good, I bet you playt
tournaments! Wh
