Woody 1: Why can't we have a prsident like Harrison Ford from Air Force One?
Principalpoop: what happens when the mainstream runs dry, because it lies?
Bambi: but the most accurate calendar (Mayan Calendar also ends then and that's kinda weird)

Dexter Fong: It's a cameo with a profile of Tim leary on it

Dexter Fong: Your a good guy doc =)
Principalpoop: breast or back stroke?

doctec: dex: well i figure i don't need the extra calories - and if i don't drink, lili is less tempted to also
Dexter Fong: Sycronized dog paddle poop
Bunnyboy: Booze is fun, but I've been about 4 1/2 years away from it.

Bunnyboy: And I sure don't miss hangovers.
cease: makes sense, doc
doctec: so we're sucking it up and dealing with it
cease: you feel strong, bun?
Bunnyboy: Or NOT sucking it up, as the case may be...
Principalpoop: that first week is the hardest, the habit aspect, now just keeping the will
doctec: bb: exactly! (lol)
Dexter Fong: Yeah Bunny
Bunnyboy: (sings) I feel good! Ow!

Dexter Fong: Sound like a suckingless household , BOb

doctec: pp: well getting the surgery is priority one for lili right now, so we have a strong motivator
cease: i see a future in mocktails

Principalpoop: butter is called beurre in french, go figure
cease: i have a lifetime of experience with oddly combined fruit
Bunnyboy: All this drink talk makes my mouth action for water. Let's Eat!
doctec: pp:yes, and the fact of the matter is that once lili gets her surgery we'll probably get back in the habit - but i will be pushing her to keep consumption to a reasonable level and the only way to do that is for me to drink little or nothing around her
cease: youre liucky you dont live here, poop
doctec: one drink every other day at most
cease: yu have to turn the products around to read them.
