Bob D Caterino: Ill be bach

||||||||| ah,clem runs out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's ah,clem?! It's 8:12 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood intones: "9:00 PM and late as usual, it's Bambi, just back from Billville."

H. Stones: and listening to CNI radio of course
llanwydd: let me try this.
llanwydd: didnt' work!
Bambi: Yay :-)
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and snorts derisively "Announcing 'cease', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:10 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the Aviary...

NewYearsTween: And to your son, Bambi :)
H. Stones: Happy Birthday to Everyone, whatever their sign
Bambi: well, if there is anything to all that...this is the year of the ox...Obama was born under the Ox sign and takes office under the sign of the Ox

Bambi: november baby eh?
Tay: Yep.
Bambi: Clem's a monkey ;-)
ah,clem: figures
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Elayne inside, makes a note of the time (9:23 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Elayne: Happy New Year, everyone!
NewYearsTween: Evenin' E
H. Stones: Hi Elayn, Happy New Year
Bambi: Happy New Year Elayne
llanwydd: Happy New Year, Elayne!
NewYearsTween: Year of the Horse here, chinese-wise
Elayne: Robin just brought to my attention that we've forgotten to eat our Christmas pudding, so he's about to put it in the microwave...
H. Stones: I was born in the Hour of the Horse Tween
Bambi: kewl ...yummm
NewYearsTween: Wasn't aware there were 'hours'
H. Stones: yes, twelve of them, each two hours long
llanwydd: any ox here besides me?
NewYearsTween: huh
llanwydd: I almost said "oxen" but it sounds archaic
Tay: You have died of dysentery.
NewYearsTween: /me is feeling archaic
H. Stones: i like this album Clem but its not very friendly to Capricorns
NewYearsTween: Beaver Creek, Tay? You guys have been getting a bit of weather, eh?
llanwydd: I'm a virgo. another down to earth earthsign like the capricorns
Tay: Yeah, it's been crazy here the past couple weeks. We were snowed in over Christmas... well, the roads were clear, but getting out of my neighborhood was a nightmare.
Elayne: I was born in the Year of the Chopped Liver. http://www.jewzo.com/v/vspfiles/photos/JZ-1001-2.jpg
H. Stones: Virgos are detail conscious for the most part, and worry that they may have missed something,
Bambi: when I mentioned the year of the ox a friend of ours said and we have a bullish market lol
llanwydd: LOL, Elayne
NewYearsTween: LOL E
Bambi: one of our daughters is a virgo ...another great sign
H. Stones: Here i must confess that i have practiced Astrology, since i was 14
NewYearsTween: Oh, it's bull alright
Elayne: According to that Jewish Zodiac placemat ("want," by the way), Robin was born in the year of the Pickle.
H. Stones: its not an exact science of course, and about as reliable as the weather forecast for prediciton purposes
Tay: I guess that makes me pastrami.... lol.
Bambi: I really enjoying reading about astrology and numerology
Elayne: I'm buying a bunch of those for my mom, she loved that site.
llanwydd: that's interesting elayne. do you remember what 1961 is?
Elayne: BRB
ah,clem: I think it is all bull, but then I am a tarus
llanwydd: watch, I'll turn out to be a matzoh ball
NewYearsTween: clem :)
Bambi: I was told you can't go by 'general' stuff...needs to be right down to the minute you were born to even be close ... but even then I am skeptical ... but general personality traits seem pretty close
H. Stones: i think its the year of the Dog llan
Bambi: it's just fun
llanwydd: no, on the chinese calendar 1961 is the year of the ox
Bambi: 2010 is the year of the tiger
Bambi: 2000 was the year of the dragon
llanwydd: you know, I actually know someone who believes that dragons existed in medieval times
Bambi: all folklore is based in some sort of truth
Bambi: no matter how convoluted ;-)
Bambi: I love folklore personally
||||||||| 9:36 PM: Dr. Headphones jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past five minutes!"
Dr. Headphones: at long last, he has returned
llanwydd: Hey Kend
H. Stones: I have found that in general terms most people do conform to their signs but much of this is hidden by either the Rising sign which governs personality or the Moon sign which governs the emotional nature
llanwydd: haven't seen you in a while
Bambi: Happy New Year Dr.H!!!
Dr. Headphones: i so rarely have a friday off and can stay up late. i'm usually in bed by now
NewYearsTween: Good evening, DrH, and Happy New Year

H. Stones: i feel that way with or without the sleep Dr H
Dr. Headphones: for the most part i have been good. and when i'm bad, i won't tell you about it :)
llanwydd: too
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 9:38 PM and doctec waltzes out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.

||||||||| Elayne - dead from the fiddlers
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
llanwydd: anybody make any resolutions?
Dr. Headphones: i have been somewhat worried about work. we are just barely making it there, if it gets worse, i could get the dreaded pink slip
doctec: tay: yes, some uncomplicated individuals still believe this myth
Tay: Aside from my dad... and his friends.
Bambi: came to the right place Tay :-)
doctec: but here in the technical vastness of the future
Dr. Headphones: tay, i think you're new since i was last here oh so many moons ago. i once was a regular. constipation sucks ;)
llanwydd: well, if you like FST I think you will enjoy this chat room, Tay
Bambi: I don't believe in making resolutions for new year
doctec: ... oh wait i forgot: the future ain't here yet - man -
Bambi :-)
Tay: LOL.
llanwydd: by the way, tay. how did you find out about firesign chat?
NewYearsTween: I resolve to enjoy the end of the 12 year Curse Of Bush
doctec: i hereby resolve not to make any new year's resolutions i cannot keep
Tay: I looked it up on Google and looked around the website.
NewYearsTween: Good plan, doc
Dr. Headphones: praise grid and pass the google!
Bambi: that's why I don't make any ...
llanwydd: aha
doctec: great googly-moogly
llanwydd: I think I've been here since 2003
llanwydd: or maybe 04
Tay: I've had the chat bookmarked for quite a while now, but I've never managed to remember to show up on a Thursday until tonight.
Dr. Headphones: i make the same ones every year, they last until i get out of bed. you know, lose weight, quit smoking, stop raping 6 year old elephants. oh wait, wrong chat there....
Dr. Headphones: i know i was doing this chat when it was IRC before my ex left, and next month that will be 10 years

doctec: although i've been m.i.a. for most of 2008, i've been showing up here since (i think) '97 or so - cease has been here even longer
Bambi: all good 'intentions' eh Dr.H? ;-)

NewYearsTween: Great to hear, doc
H. Stones: she sends here greetings
H. Stones: her
Bambi: Happy New Year Honey!
Elayne: Poor Honey! Tell her to set something on fire. :)
NewYearsTween: Back at ya, Honey
Dr. Headphones: hi, hon (from afar)
doctec: re the job: still putting in 10 hr days - but the intensity has dimished somewhat - and i am finally getting to take some vacation time to recharge the batteries a bit
llanwydd: what firesign do you have, tay?
llanwydd: most of it or just some?
NewYearsTween: I'm sure the R&R is well deserved
Elayne: Great to hear it, Tom - when things thaw a bit we should get together at the Palisades Center...
doctec: some, lland - it was overdue
llanwydd: I've owned nearly all of it except for some very recent releases
Tay: My dad has the record of How Can You Be... I'm not sure how much I have in MP3 format, though. A lot of it is backed up on a CD somewhere.

llanwydd: 2 Places is my favorite firesign album
H. Stones: i have most of them on MP3 and CD
Tay: I grew up on that one.
Elayne: Rob just found pretty much every Firesign recording I've ever seen on MP3...
Bambi: HCYB is great ... it has Nicky on it :-)
doctec: with our new benefits plan, we get 16 days combined vacation/sick time off - and since i've been really good about not getting sick over the past 1-1/2 years, i will probably get to take all 16 days as vacation time
cease: hey doc , el, all
Elayne: He got it via bit-torrent. He said it's on a place called Demonoid, a member-only bit torrent place.
cease: wow doc too
Tay: Everything You Know Is Wrong, another Nick Danger segment, not sure of the whole title... I Think We're All Bozos On This Bus, Eat or Be Eaten...
Dr. Headphones: catman! meow to you
llanwydd: I don't have mp3. don't even know much about it
Bambi: congrat doc!
cease: berst of years
Tay: I have Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me The Pliers somewhere, but I've not listened to it.
doctec: (i am REALLY careful these days to keep my hands clean and away from my face - and not touch door handles - maybe i'm being a germophobe but it really seems to be paying off)
H. Stones: where have you been hiding mp3
llanwydd: Dwarf is not to be missed, Tay

Elayne: Oh Tay, that one's my favorite. Well worth it.

||||||||| Catherwood answers "You're welcome."
Tay: I have a CD somewhere with a bunch of smaller bits I haven't listened to, either... and I'm not sure how much of it is Firesign Theater anyway. I'll need to find that CD.
Dr. Headphones: up yours, catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood walks up to Dr. Headphones and mumbles "Do you have something for me to do?"
doctec: saki bomb!
Tay: lol.
Elayne: Oh, just wanted to make sure everyone knows that the entire Four-Alarm FIRESIGNal run is now online at Chromium Switch, thanks to Tom Gedwillo and Freditor.

Tay: Haa. I think Shit Creek runs near everything...

llanwydd: it tastes awful, bob
Elayne: Oh, speaking of gathering Kate Moss, our local PBS station showed Blackadder: Back & Forth on New Year's Eve, the one they did in '99. Lots of fun.
Principalpoop: moss grows on the north side of the tree, where there are no rolling stones
Dr. Headphones: no pain, no gain. where did that stupid saying come from? i hate pain
