||||||||| Catherwood announces, "The time is 4:33 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for June 12, 2008 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in and snorts derisively "Presenting 'Firebroiled', just granted probation at 7:03 AM", then leaves hurriedly.
Firebroiled: This is Side Five.
Follow in your book and repeat after me
as we learn three new words in Turkish:

Towel . . . .

Bath . . . .

Border . . . .

May I see your passport, please?

Firebroiled:

||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and pipes up "Announcing 'ah,clem', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:55 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...

Tor Hershman: OH MY GOSH!!! The Rapture ISSSSSSSSSSS TRUE!

cease: the only tihng i remember about the 55 trip was all the red brick buildings and my large uncle lifting me up to see stuff at the big museum
Dexter Fong: E: Once on the North side, once on the South?
Elayne: That was the one acid trip in my life, and pretty much turned me off to the stuff.
Tor Hershman: I droped twi-ice once
cease: i think the dinner's i'll be eating will be closer to lsd than food
Elayne: Dex, once in the evening, then again a few hours after that, so it kind of had a cumulative effect. Not fun.
cease: i try never to drop ice cubes, except into my glass
Elayne: You really don't want to look at certain patterns of hotel carpets when you're on acid.
Dexter Fong: E: Too much ain't enough.....or so they say
Elayne: Gad, my stomach was aching for HOURS.
Tor Hershman: and puffy white clouds moving under the stars and moon.....Wow, it's just like Star Trek
Dexter Fong: He's dead Tor
