A "fish and chips" conversation refers to when two people are instant messaging one another in an idle manner. They write sporadically, perhaps make little jokes or jabs, but nothing of substance. Usually comes after a long conversation of importance.
We call it "fish and chips" because the meal Fish and Chips is beautiful and simple but not very notable, just like this type of conversation
(after a lengthy conversation about something)
RandomUser1 (10:00:00 AM): glad we talked about that
RandomUser2 (10:05:00 AM): yeah
RandomUser1 (10:20:00 AM): mhm...so uh...
RandomUser2 (10:30 AM): haha
RandomUser1 (10:45 AM): I'm tired...
This is an example of a typical AIM "Fish and Chips" conversation
