A Firesign Chat


Special appearance by
Peter Bergman as 'peter Bergman'

||||||||| 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 March 16, 2006 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and pipes up "Announcing 'Firebroiled', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:30 AM" -- then he slowly retires back into the Aviary...
Firebroiled: Ah, my bony boy!
In the Estonian Mountains,
we used to go to sleep leaning up against a wind-fall.
I was but a mere pratt then.
I’ll never forget the time a snake slithered into my wife!
I wasn’t but knee-high to a married grasshopper then.

Never saw the woman again. . . .
||||||||| 8:30 AM -- Firebroiled left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, March 16, 2006 - 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 sneaks into the room, and snorts derisively "Announcing 'klokwkdog', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:15 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the anteroom...
klokwkdog: klok will be here in person in 40 min. or so.
||||||||| Catherwood enters with ah,clem close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 9:18 PM tree-stunting plans, and hurries off to the Aviary.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern, Dear Friends'
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies JollyTweenMidget in through the front door at 9:24 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.

Bambi: well, I think you just found out Mark Time lol
Elayne: It's okay, I guess. I'm not all that impressed with his craftsmanship, and it's kind of boring to look at to tell you the truth. So it's in my reading pile, but near the back.

cease: i have never seen that comic
Stickman: Whoa! Too much information!
cease: the link is on your blog, el, otherwise i'd not have known about it

||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Merlyn leaves at 12:30 AM, singing "Oh, I'm just a little fishy, floating in the sea, and there ain't no hook that's smart enough to catch the likes of me..."
||||||||| A stretch dumpster pulls up to the front door at 1:59 AM; peter Bergman gets out and signs a few autographs before entering the Waiting room.
peter Bergman: is there anyone left?
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 2 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
peter Bergman: I will have to gp since I am alone. Born alone, die alone, never alone
||||||||| "Hey peter Bergman!" ... peter Bergman turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 2:01 AM, I don't have to go yet!"...
||||||||| Catherwood enters, and announces to all and sundry "It's 4:32 AM, time to change the log file and clean out unused rooms; please exit the chat room for a minute or two. Thank you for your patience."
