||||||||| Catherwood re-enters the Waiting Room and explains "This is the main discussion room which is logged each night."
||||||||| Catherwood announces, "The time is 4:33 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for August 12, 2004 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, August 12, 2004 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!" -- then he looks around at the empty room, looks at his watch, and mumbles "...am I early?"
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Bubba's Brain into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 9:03 PM, then departs.
||||||||| Merlyn enters at 9:05 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and runs off to the Haberdashery Barn.
Bubba's Brain: Hi, Bri!
Merlyn: hello
Merlyn: how's the shirt biz?
Bubba's Brain: Not too bad... though things have slowed from the first month.
Merlyn: laugh.com should help volume
Merlyn: anyway, that's the whole idea behind rotating the slogans
Bubba's Brain: Yep -- I had to put in a re-order for CD's almost immediately for some titles, and they mentioned they sold 4 in the first week.
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:08 PM and late as usual, it's Dave, just back from Billville."
Bubba's Brain: Hey, Dave.
Merlyn: I'm not sure if I should mark things like Anythynge as being out of print or not
||||||||| Dr. Headphones sneaks in around 9:08 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
Merlyn: hi dave
Dave: 'lo
Dr. Headphones: howdy, dear friends
Bubba's Brain: Hey, DrH.
Dr. Headphones: what's the topic of discussion tonight?
Bubba's Brain: Well, there's no more being made right now.
Bubba's Brain: Don't have one yet.

Dr. Headphones: hey jp, are you out of the closet now? are you the mystery man seeing the jersey guv?
Bubba's Brain: Yep, RJ wasn't one of my favorites either, but he was an interesting cat, and a good musician.
Merlyn: maybe he'll burst out of the closet saying he's been listening for the last hour
ddywnall: I used to live in NJ. I haven't kept track of the governors lately
Johnny Piano: No, Ken - I'm just down on women right now, but that won't stop me from going
Dr. Headphones: i've been in nj, have no desire to live there unless it's out in the boonies of the west or south
ddywnall: yeah, I can't believe all the good things I keep hearing about Rick James now that he's dead
Johnny Piano: Last time I was in Jersey was '96 during my brief tour with Big Bob Dole
Dr. Headphones: we're all saints after death
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 9:15 PM and cease steps out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.

Dexter Fong: JP: ()
cease: i hear my kittens trashing my kitchen must investigage
Dexter Fong: []
Elayne: She interpreted it that he resigned because he was gay. I think he resigned because he had an extramarital affair, plus he felt bad about being closeted. He felt he'd lied to people for too long.
Elayne: Some politicians actually have consciences.
ddywnall: didn't know cat had kittens
Johnny Piano: Gee, a lying politician - what a concept?
Elayne: Oh llan, his kittens are adorable!
Dr. Headphones: el: say it ain't so!
Dexter Fong: Elayne: So he was a lying, cheating fag huh?
