cosmicGrrrl!, known better by the nickname Alice, is a virtual character appearing in World of Goo. Alice only appears in her debut level, Alice and Bob and the Third Party. Alice is evidently in a monitored conversation with Bob, in the Virtual Buddy chat room #5. The Bright Green Goo flying out of her mouth and into Bob's ear and back most likely symbolizes the flow of data between them. Appropriately, the word "laconic" in Bob's username can refer to a person of very few words.
