||||||||| Catherwood announces, "The time is 4:33 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for February 27, 2003 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood escorts llanwydd in through the front door at 6:03 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
llanwydd: testing
llanwydd: can't you see you're upsetting Nancy?
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "6:12 PM and late as usual, it's Merlyn, just back from Billville."
Merlyn: You're early
||||||||| Catherwood says "6:16 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Merlyn by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
||||||||| It's 6:20 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| llanwydd - dead from pneumonia
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and llanwydd disembarks at 7:46 PM.
llanwydd: what is reality?
llanwydd: I'll check back in an hour.
||||||||| It's 8:00 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:

||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood escorts llanwydd in through the front door at 8:04 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Merlyn close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 8:09 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
Merlyn: are you here or dead again?
Merlyn: the chat doesn't start for another hour
||||||||| Merlyn says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Merlyn exits at 8:10 PM.

||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "8:56 PM and late as usual, it's llanwydd, just back from Billville."
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, February 27, 2003 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
llanwydd: is there a real Catherwood here?
llanwydd: or has he been gone for a thousand years?
llanwydd: I might not beat the reaper next time
||||||||| Merlyn sneaks in around 9:05 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
||||||||| Catherwood leads Elayne inside, makes a note of the time (9:05 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Merlyn: hello
Elayne: Hi Merlyn, llan!
llanwydd: howdy
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 9:06 PM, dragging Dexter Fong by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"

||||||||| Brigand enters at 9:18 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and runs off to the Haberdashery Barn.
Elayne: You're not much older than me, Dex. Bert was slightly before my time, I think I missed those PSAs by a few years.

Ken: judy: at my age pop ups are a rare event

Merlyn: georgia lives in hellmouth
||||||||| Catherwood walks in wearing his pyjamas, yawns, and mumbles "It's midnight here in New York city"...then he falls over and starts snoring loudly..

||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 1 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
mrmuckle: Well, I came back to find that I had all along been signed in (as I didn't log off, but rather went "Away", only to discover that (and here's where I started) I'm still here, even tho I wasn't for much of the time, as I had to prepare dinner (at 8pm on the Left Coast) for my wife, who is the working member of this enclave, but that is neither here or there. Did you know that every map and globe you've ever seen has been UPSIDE DOWN? Your Universe has been standing on its head, and everything you know is etcetera (or worse), but, as "they" say: the sun also rises (whateverthehell THAT means). God gave Man the ability to reason,so he has spent the last 10,000 years reasoning out how to raise the rent, poison the air, mutate the plants and animals and maim and kill his fellow humans. Good job
mrmuckle: and Good Night!
||||||||| Catherwood says "1:04 AM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs mrmuckle by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
||||||||| 2:12 AM: Tut jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
Tut mutters Thursday Night, Thursday Night
Tut: Dang I have to remember it's Thursday Night
Tut: They never stay up late for the Left Coast....
Tut: well back to the pizza I guess......
Tut picks a few pieces of pepperoni off a slice of cheeze pizza and presses the exit button
||||||||| Tut departs at 2:15 AM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 3:25 AM and asdlfkj steps out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
||||||||| It's 3:40 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| asdlfkj - dead from the common cold
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood enters, and announces to all and sundry "It's 4:31 AM, time to change the log file and clean out unused rooms; please log off for a minute or two. Thank you for your patience."
