||||||||| 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 09, 2007 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| "8:27 AM? 8:27 AM!!" says Catherwood, "Firebroiled should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Firebroiled enters and sits in the comfy chair.
Firebroiled: As you see, this car's been equipped with a complete line of extras, designed with your mind in mind!
Firebroiled: Here, for instance, an all-weather climate control in red, blue or green, with a special oxygen danger- indicator level.
Firebroiled: And here, of course, your own personal remote-controlled, picture-sized color TV, with matching brass knobs! Just reach above the bar and press the button right there under the handy laminated imitation masonite Wild-West gun rack with the look of real wood, for the channel of your choice!
||||||||| Around 8:30 AM, Firebroiled walks off into the sunset...
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in at 10:50 AM, dragging johanna9028629387 by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this yo-yo?"
