Dr. Headphones: what is a currant? i've heard of them, don't think i've ever seen or eaten one
Elayne: I didn't think so, Llan, but maybe IHOP put something "special" in the coffee...
cease: grapes are all good
Bambi: yes, cake was at our daughter's friend's house Elayne ... outside Chicago!
catherwydd: you can actually get ribena in NYC? I've only had it in England
Bambi laughs
Elayne: Dr. H: http://visualpalate.typepad.com/visual_palate/images/currant1-thumb.jpg
CommieMartyr: you mean gribbinous?
Elayne: Of course we can get 'Bena in NYC. I'm married to an Englishman, we have all sorts of sources. :)
aTweenByAnyOtherName: Who you callin' black?
Dr. Headphones: an interesting looking fruit
Elayne: Actually we live in a pretty Irish neighborhood so we get a lot of foods they sell in that part of the world.
Elayne: And here are some black currants: http://www.berrycrops.net/images/XmbcBC2.jpg
CommieMartyr: an interesting looking fruit, he was wearing seersucker!
klokwkdog-chillin fetches a Sam Adams
Elayne: That first picture is actually a close-up, Dr. H. They're fairly tiny things, smaller than blueberries.
Dr. Headphones: the black ones look more tasty
Elayne: Kind of tangy taste. We used to grow them in our garden when I lived in NJ.
catherwydd: There's a lot of british stuff I've come to really miss. Steak and kidney pie, ribena, wheatabix, english mustard...
cease: i was just listening to neal amid last night and noticed my use of the word seersucker
cease: the kind of word that leaps out at you
Mama: black is always more tasty
aTweenByAnyOtherName: I'll bet Pat Robertson gets away with it. Not to be political or anything...
Dr. Headphones: i had a seersucker suit once, back in the 70s
Elayne: Llan, I can get most of that. Dunno about the first, but we have Wheatabix in the cupboard and we're never without our Colman's mustard.
CommieMartyr: it just dares you to say anything
Dr. Headphones: "once you go black, you never go back" is what i hear ;)
aTweenByAnyOtherName: Brown Sugar!!
aTweenByAnyOtherName: Once you break the Constitution, you can never go back.
cease: just got some rosemary and thyme mustard the other day. delicious
Elayne: We even get British sweets. The store a couple doors down from our all-you-can-eat sushi place is an Irish food store that sells pretty much all the British sweets.
Mama: yeah, i've heard that too
cease: though we basially live on dill mustard, american i think
CommieMartyr: good as any
Elayne: Except Galaxy, naturally, as that's my favorite. So I have to buy them in the local supermarket.
catherwydd: lemon squash! great stuff
Dr. Headphones: i eat generic brown mustard most of the time, but sometimes buy the good brown stuff
aTweenByAnyOtherName: Brother cease hasn't had his medication.
Elayne: We're pretty spoiled. Rob gets just about all the British supplements he wants. We can even get stuff like Eno's.
cease: is it better than Phliips?
Elayne: Eno's is WAAAAY better than Philips, or Pepto-Bismol, or just about any American upset-stomach med.
aTweenByAnyOtherName: Wilson can't be scene.
catherwydd: when I was in england the major food outlet was Tesco. Rather inexpensive and it had everything
Boney: Soon all supplements will be available by prescription only in the U.S.
Elayne: The only thing it's not better than is Imodium.
Boney: slippage
Elayne: But it works on pretty much anything else that ails your insides...
Dr. Headphones: my ex takes sudafed every day, it soon will be unavailable as it's a great precursor to methamphetamine
Boney: supple meant
Elayne: Yes, Tesco was my favorite too. They've finally started carrying sushi in the cold foods section.
aTweenByAnyOtherName: There's a new flaw in the Tesco hardware. We just can't talk about it for a few years.
cease: isnt thatr the name of a comedian, eno philips? or so i had assumed
Dr. Headphones: emo philips
Dr. Headphones: and brian eno
CommieMartyr: emo brian eno
cease: tall guy
Dr. Headphones: never seen either one, heard both
CommieMartyr: pointy head
Elayne: If Emo Phillips married Brian Eno...
Elayne: (I miss the Laugh-In joke wall.)
Boney: Who put the ephidrene in Peter Bergman's joke routine?
aTweenByAnyOtherName: 801 Live? Great album. Baby's On Fire...
catherwydd: blast from the past, elayne
cease: where, boney?
aTweenByAnyOtherName: Also like Strait & Yes. Go figure.
Dr. Headphones: damn, i'm old enough to remember that, too
Elayne: I loved the "if so-and-so married so-and-so" bits...
Elayne: If Emo Philips married Brian Eno, divorced him and married Yoko Ono, he'd be... well, you can build on that...
Boney: organic crank from the medicine chest of mother nature
CommieMartyr: I like yes. I hear it so infrequently
catherwydd: any of the Yesheads here going to buy "The Word is Live"?
Mama: how much wood could a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
Dr. Headphones: llan: haven't heard of it, but then i kinda lost track of them after i quit doing heavy drugs
CommieMartyr: I would if it were the original lineup
aTweenByAnyOtherName: Haven't kept up Catherwood, how's the sound? Wakeman on boards?
||||||||| Catherwood strides alongside aTweenByAnyOtherName and says "Did you want me?"
catherwydd: Commie, it's practically all the line-ups
Boney: I kid the tweakers
cease: how many czecks could dubcek check if dubchek could check czechs?

cease: they beat gibson. amazing
aTweenByAnyOtherName: Tick Tock and the Wurd, MF!
Dr. Headphones: cat: yes, every day i wonder about god and this country. when a "preacher" calls for killing a foreign head of state we are in sad shape

Dr. Headphones: klok: i don't recall that name at all

aTweenByAnyOtherName: Many new starships. The Lao Tsu, The Vishnu.
Dr. Headphones: i'm an equal opportunity deist
klokwkdog-chillin: Robertson? I think the CIA should "take him out"... ;-)
catherwydd: pat robertson issued an ostentatious apology. Then went on to say, "I never said assassinate. I said take him out. That could mean anything". But he very clearly DID say "assassinate".
CommieMartyr: DH, that might very well be the Miller Beer Sayin' of the Evening
klokwkdog-chillin: I want a stone tablet with positions from the Kama Sutra put on the courthouse lawn...
Dr. Headphones: republicans are good at lying, even if it is wrong for a christian to do it
cease: i used the word "godforsaken" in the sense that the firesign used it in temporarily humboldt county
aTweenByAnyOtherName: Let's see... The President of Russia. The former President of the U.S. Big Brother, Mr. Proctor?
catherwydd: but he won't comment on his "apology:
Dr. Headphones: does anyone remember the national lampoon map of the world? the only thing i remember was "godforsaken, greenland"
catherwydd: got mail. brb
klokwkdog-chillin is reminded of the movie, Rustler's Rhapsody, the scene where evil cattle baron Andy Griffith tells his henchmen to "take care of her" (his daughter)
cease: no femail?
Mudhead: Im BACK from the fiddlers!
Mama: fem fatal
klokwkdog-chillin: and they get ready to shoot her and he angrily says, "No! No! I said take care of her"...
Boney: I've got this theory that Johnny Carson isn't really dead. He's a zombie and has stolen the identity of Pat Robertson.
aTweenByAnyOtherName: Hey, whatever put food on the table and a roof over the head.
Dr. Headphones: fiddlers are just violinists from outside the city
CommieMartyr: look at this bow!
Mama: Tupac is alive too

Elayne: *yawn*
Mudhead: if Carson was here today he wouldnt smell too good either
||||||||| 10:27 PM -- Elayne left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
klokwkdog-chillin: bye, E!

Mudhead: that machine needs a BIG hole!
aTweenByAnyOtherName: A nice little chocolate treat, springer.
klokwkdog-chillin: I mean, you could shoot deer with it, but it's kind of a lightweight
Dr. Headphones: cat: it's like pro wrestling: all entertainment, no reality
Mama: big holes are bad
cease: coimbra, the city we were in 3 years ago, is surrounded by flames
klokwkdog-chillin: but it's not something you go out pot-shotting with, which is what they were doing
aTweenByAnyOtherName: You can get begonias in grovernor's square.
klokwkdog-chillin: it was real brass, too, not reloads, so a box of that stuff is $20 or more

Dr. Headphones: i never shot pot, didn't use needles at all. only smoked or ate it

klokwkdog-chillin: well, that stick says my sugar is 98. not long enough since "lunch" (7:30PM) or the sam adams, I guess
cease: i did not appreciate harry' shearer's comments
Mudhead: Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that our government can track a cow born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she sleeps in the state of Washington And they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give them all a cow.
klokwkdog-chillin: anyway, on to dinner! BRB
catherwydd: I think I remember don cornelius. soul train?
Mudhead: Boy, I feel a lot safer now that Martha Stewart is behind bars. O.J. Simpson and Kobe Bryant are still walking around; Osama Bin Laden too, but they take the one woman in America willing to cook, clean, and work in the yard, and haul her ass off to jail." What's wrong with this picture??
aTweenByAnyOtherName: Hunter is fertilizer. Just how he wanted it.

catherwydd: I can't help but have some contempt for Johnny Depp after what he did with 2 million dollars
Mudhead: tru
Dr. Headphones: yep, ain't it the truth
Mama: that's when its real good Doc :)
Mudhead: what did he do?
catherwydd: He can do what he wants with his money but doesn't it make you hope he ends up on the skids someday?
Dr. Headphones: mama: well, it was during mutual oral sex. need i say more?
Boney: How about Paris Hilton, Ken Lay and Dennis Miller?
aTweenByAnyOtherName: Eye'll talk the high road and you take the low road...
Mama: Oh, that's too bad
CommieMartyr: Sometimes I would piss my wife off by belching while saying the word belch in the process. She said If you could teach your ass to say fart you'd really be something wouldn't you? It

Boney: Hunter Thompson smoked himself.
Mudhead: for the party
Dr. Headphones: wydd: i heard cannon wasn't allowed, he used fireworks
Mudhead: not just the cannon
Mudhead: ???
Merlyn: that's what HST wanted, maybe his heirs didn't want to spend the money
CommieMartyr: Only because he was done smoking everything else
Dr. Headphones: but that's a lot of roman candles, for sure
cease: so what? he probably made many times that playing hunter in the flick. he wants to splurge on his friends funeral? what's wrong with that?
aTweenByAnyOtherName: JB barricades.
Mudhead: true, he got it, let him waste it
Dr. Headphones: when i die, i don't want any of you to spend a dime on my funeral except to have a helluva party
cease: thanks kend. we'll invite you
Boney: Steve Allen was killed by an SUV
Mudhead: ok, lets kill him so we can start the party
Merlyn: Hunter S. Thompson was canonnized
catherwydd: he could have made someone's life with 2 million. Instead he made someone's death.
cease: right after doing an interview with paul krassner. maybe paul killed him
aTweenByAnyOtherName: The Plantation Highwaymen here in Elmertown...
Merlyn: well, he hardly burned the money, he paid other people for various things/services, and I'm sure they liked the money
aTweenByAnyOtherName: They put up a statute to Steve here.
Mudhead: he musta passed out a lot of cash in the local town
CommieMartyr: Was it bigger than a breadbox?
Dr. Headphones: cath: merely a matter of choices. earlier this week i choose to have a steak instead of sending money to a charity. i'm not sure that makes me an evil person
Boney: Where is here, Tween?
