Dexter Fong: You have't sprung ahead yet Stones?
Bubba's Brain: Mmmm.... falling asleep. Gonna bail
Merlyn: we can call you jay, or we can call you ray,

||||||||| Bubba's Brain leaves to catch the 10:18 PM train to Lombard.
||||||||| Principalpoop enters at 10:18 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and dashes off to the Hat Pack Annex.
Dexter Fong: Hey Poop

Merlyn: cat, he's my old roommate
Principalpoop: is this thing on?
Principalpoop: huh?
FreshPrinceOfWhales: Che Poop?
cease: poop
Some Call Me Tim: "Prat." Not "woody" enough. More sort of "plopish." Oh no. I don't care for "Prat," enough though that was Boris Karloff's actual name. William Henry Pratt. Not to be confused with Woody Allen.

Dexter Fong: (tap) (tap)
Principalpoop: now?

FreshPrinceOfWhales: Or musicians from Indiana

Dexter Fong: Much taller

FreshPrinceOfWhales: Is that a clarinet in your mouth, our are you just glad to be from goshen?

Dexter Fong: karloff, meet carl orf
Principalpoop: boris karloff and woody allen? ahh, everything you wanted to know about sex is wrong?

Merlyn: Car loft?

Principalpoop: meat loft

Merlyn: Tim is my old roommate Jay; the "93" was a joke on "old roommate"
FreshPrinceOfWhales: Confuse A Cat was a great Monty bit
Merlyn: He still has most of his old teeth
Merlyn: In a jar by his bed
FreshPrinceOfWhales recommends "John Cleese's Personal Best"

Dexter Fong: Hi tim/Jay
Principalpoop: lets do the hun
Merlyn: I put the chat URL on my facebook page as what I'm doing now, so Jay saw it and come in
Some Call Me Tim: It's was John Carradine who appeared in Woody's "Everything about Sex" film. What an excentric nut. Loved to wear capes in real life. He wore them so often that someone decided to replace Lugosi in the vampire role in House of Frankenstein with John Carradine. Still, not "wqoody" enough. Class?
Dexter Fong: YOu do the hun, I'll do Kim Koolzip
Merlyn: came in*
FreshPrinceOfWhales: Ah, Peter Gabriel's "sew"
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Tor Hershman in through the front door at 10:23 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.

Principalpoop: hi tor
cease: a gaot or ghost or ghost of goat?
H. Stones: I actually have Rolling Thunder on vinyl
Principalpoop: i am a ghast
Some Call Me Tim: My exposure to Firesign is largely due to Brian. Also, that glamourous girl at the beach house. Still. Enough about that!
Dexter Fong: More!
Dexter Fong: Now that's woody

Tor Hershman: What?
Principalpoop: forget all about that, you made it...
cease: doctec?
H. Stones: i think i converted it to Mp3
llanwydd: hope things are better now, doc
FreshPrinceOfWhales: But, P, what about the elevator boy?

Some Call Me Tim: There's been nothing remotely "woody" written here for the past three minutes. I may have to write a letter to the Times.
Tor Hershman: PC problems, ehh? They need E.....E mail that is.
Dexter Fong: "TImes?" Sounds Tinny
H. Stones: Hi there Clem
doctec: i have learned the hard way: when a pc's windows swap file is infected, your system is hosed
Dexter Fong: Almost Prattish
Tor Hershman: Yes, Clem
llanwydd: aaaahhhh! not tinny!!!!
Principalpoop: heaven, as usual?
Tor Hershman: Last and least
Dexter Fong: Dinsdale...Now THAT"S woody
Some Call Me Tim: Yes, "Times" is a bit tinny, at that. Scratch the aforementioned remark. If letter-writing is to be done, is shall be to a more woody-sounding media outlet.
doctec: and you may as well dig out your windows install disks and be prepared to start from scratch
Merlyn: The Telegraph is tinny too
doctec: it happened to my dad's pc, and it happened to lili's daughters pc
ah,clem: when a pc's windows swap file is infected, ... that's why I run Linux, well one of many reasons
donk: the same guy on sirius who's plays, firesign, played Woody last week, an old standup routine, the machines in woody's life were after him!
FreshPrinceOfWhales: Knock wood...
Dexter Fong: Tim: Try the Sequoia Sentinel
doctec: i was supposed to go to a friend's place tonight to look at why their email archive vanished
doctec: a bad sign indeed
Tor Hershman: Ahhhh, THAT Woody
Merlyn: How about the Graniaud?
FreshPrinceOfWhales: Firesign's Guide to the Galaxy?
Some Call Me Tim: Dinsdale lives in the woods. Have you seen him? I've been meaning to return his earpieces to him. Silly old hedgehog. Used to utilize the pen name "James Herriot," I'm believe.
Tor Hershman: Moi ain't been here for awhile so check moi's "Phelps/Pot" blog post http://torhershman.blogspot.com/
Dexter Fong: Tim: A friend of Toad A. Way and F. Rog

Some Call Me Tim: Er, which one of you is Brian, again? Raise you hand.
Merlyn: I'm Brian and so is my wife
Principalpoop: that is me
FreshPrinceOfWhales: and don't forget to support CNI Radio, without which, none of this would have been necessary... (http://www.cniradio.com/donations.htm)

Dexter Fong: Hey Bunny

Tor Hershman: Oh wait, I gave at the office, yeah!
H. Stones: Hi Bunny
Bunnyboy: oh fuddles keyboard is futtered agin
Tor Hershman: Does CNI take food stamps?
Bunnyboy: off for now
Some Call Me Tim: That blood incident even made Roger Corman blush.
||||||||| Catherwood says "10:36 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Bunnyboy by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
Tor Hershman: TTFN, Bun
Dexter Fong: How do you think they get the cutlets so thin
Merlyn: bye bunnyboy
doctec: lili and i just finished dinner, usually by now i am toast and have to crash but tonight i have a little extra energy to expend (since i was so good about getting more than 8 hrs of sleep mon/tues and leaving pool league early last night)

Tor Hershman: The strippers in West Virginié take food stamps
Principalpoop: we are glad you made it
Merlyn: so Tor, you related to Tor Johnson?
H. Stones: thats very responsible of you Doc
Some Call Me Tim: Merlyn, remember when we decided to make a lampshade out of the landlord when we couldn't come up with the rent? Those were the days.
doctec: i'm good until about 11pm, if i don't get at least 7 hrs tonight i will not be worth much tomorrow
Tor Hershman: No, Poop
Dexter Fong: YEs, good to see you here again doc, and best to Lili
Merlyn: Then we found the rent behind the couch when we tried to hide the body! That's irony for you.
Tor Hershman: Aren't we all brothers and sisters in DNA, Merl
Principalpoop: don't argue with me, especially when i was not talking to you
Some Call Me Tim: I say "no poop" on a fairly irregular basis.
doctec: thanks dex - one of these weekends we should rendezvous at the film forum, send me email through my doctechnical.com web site - i fear i have lost your email addy
Tor Hershman: Sorry, Poop
llanwydd: you don't like your landlord, do you?
Principalpoop: don't apologize to me, you don't know me that well...
Dexter Fong: Doc: Film Forum? What's playin?
Merlyn: depends how he's cooked
llanwydd: I've always hated the word "landlord"
doctec: i had to mortgage the rent last month
Some Call Me Tim: And the police came by to question us and we were in a three-inch pool of blood? How we laughed.
Tor Hershman: Howz 'bout 'slum lord', Ll
doctec: so this month i have no choice but to rent the mortgage
Merlyn: but that was the teargas talking
Tor Hershman: Hey, Roger
H. Stones: lucky for you there was no incriminating evidence, Tim
doctec: i am being harrangued by a female kitty
Dexter Fong: If you laughed it was nitrous oxide
Merlyn: well, it smelled funny, that I remember
Tor Hershman: Nitric oxide for the blood flow, please
doctec: she is not happy she is not the center of her world right now - carry on without me for a few moments
Principalpoop: hi pussy pussy pussy
Dexter Fong: Doc: Better than being humped by a male doggie
Some Call Me Tim: Not only has there no incriminating evidence, we made pudding out of it the next afternoon.
Tor Hershman: PUSSY!!!
llanwydd: is teargas the opposite of laughing gas?
Tor Hershman: PuTwad

Tor Hershman: MERL :-)
lililamont: Good to be back. It has been too long.
Some Call Me Tim: I can kill a bat with an artichoke.
Bunnyboy: Guess that's why my keyboard froze.
Dexter Fong: Merlyn< Salami and mustard gas? You're lucky, all we had was mud sandwiches with schrapnel
donk: been a long time for a few of us , tonite
lililamont: sounds tasty.
H. Stones: Luxury, Fong, we used to dream about shrapnel
lililamont: Right. such are the vagaries of life.
Dexter Fong: Hi lili, .....I didn't *here* youslip in
Principalpoop: i thought he said scrapple
Bunnyboy: Anybody else ever have problems with keyboards that, inexplicably, freeze out characters, at odd, infrequent intervals?
Tor Hershman: Long time, long time, chewy, chewy piles of snot last a long time, last a long time, last a long time.
Dexter Fong: Stones: There was plenty to go around, you just had to dig it out of the dead and/or wounded
lililamont: Dex: I'm very crafty and I know my appearance must be a surprise.
Some Call Me Tim: Viagra can take care of that.

Bunnyboy: How's breathin', doc and lili?
Tor Hershman: Breathin' is for stupid people
lililamont: I have problems with caps at the beginning of a sentence. but it may be my weak left pinky, since I use the method taught to me when I was 14.
Tor Hershman: Stupid, stupid, breathers
Some Call Me Tim: I can kill an artichoke with a bat. Still nothing.
doctec: as long as our noses don't submerge, bunny, just fine thanks
Tor Hershman: I can choke an art with a ........................
Bunnyboy: Well, my fangers are plenty strong. It's the dad-blasted QWERTY conspiracy!
lililamont: Hi, Bun. things have been strange. Doc and I went to Canada last weekend. My daughter lost sight in one eye. she may have MS.
Tor Hershman: I can bat an Art if it chokes on a link or letter
cease: oh no, lili
Merlyn: I can bend my mind with a fork
Principalpoop: fill in the blank tests, i always do well at those
Bunnyboy: It will usually happen in rows. Either the numbers row, or the QWERTY row, or the HGDJ, or the XNBVXM.
Principalpoop: i like to fill up a blank...
Bunnyboy: They take turns freezing up.
Tor Hershman: What kind of kids eat Armor hotdogs? The kind that need a quintuple bypass
Bunnyboy: But not entirely. Usually, 2 or 3 characters will function, the rest not.
llanwydd: LOL Tor
lililamont: Yes, Cat. she is scheduled for an MRI. Her diagnosis was optic neuritis, and that is a strong indicator of MS. If they find two or more brain lesions, then it will definitely be MS.
Some Call Me Tim: Whatever happened to Tor Johnson, anyway. The Swedish Nightengale.
doctec: i can fork my mind with the bends
Tor Hershman: Major bummer, Li
Tor Hershman: He dead, Tim
lililamont: Only after too much vodka can doctec do that.
Bunnyboy: lili: Oh, I'm so sorry! But, I have a friend with MS, who kicks it in the butt every day.
Tor Hershman: That was Angel no nightengale
doctec: one thing i can't do, however, is type faster than i can think
doctec: (not with any accuracy, at any rate)
Tor Hershman: Nighengale :-)
donk: yeah that sucks, lili, hope it works out for the best
Some Call Me Tim: The Sweidhs Nightgale is dead? You mean I have to rely on Vern Gagne for news?
doctec: the trip to canada was like "blink or you might miss it"
Tor Hershman: Heck, Tim, you need to check-out The Church Of Ed Wood
Merlyn: Yeah, hope it's less serious than that
Principalpoop: you went to canada and did not stop say hi to cat
Dexter Fong: Tim: What are you , a liberal, I listen to larry *the axe* Heenig
lililamont: Yeah, at least she should get care under the Canadian health system. But she said that drugs aren't covered, so her husband has to wait for three months to get drug coverage. he lost his job in decembe and just started working a week ago in a new job.
Tor Hershman: Rash Limp Pa

Some Call Me Tim: If you didn't see yourself, Merlyn, you're doing pretty good.
H. Stones: from the news i read, i am surprised that anyone is still working
Principalpoop: i pull legs and folks don't notice, am i pulling them wrong?

Tor Hershman: 92% - think again - many are NOT counted
Principalpoop: toad away
doctec: of course, when you consider the percentage of that 92 percent who are making do with work that doesn't pay a living wage, the statistics are more troubling
cease: merl are you involved in wikiroco at all?
lililamont: Donk: the worst think about going to Canada is coming back and dealing with the American goons of Homeland security.
Dexter Fong: Also, some of those 92% are slackers and dont count
cease: bunny? i emailed you abvout this
Tor Hershman: They do the unemployment rate BUT NOT the employment rate - it would NOT jive
Merlyn: True, I don't think my son counts as unemployed, he hasn't found work since he graduated college

Some Call Me Tim: Professor Higgins was satisfied with his slippers; you have a have a sandwich.
Merlyn: I haven't done anything yet Cat, just promoted it a bit

Tor Hershman: Goodnight, Clem - TTFN, All & & & stay on groovin' safari

lililamont: Did you guys hear or read about the guy from BC that asked the border guard in Washington state to say please when he was ordered out of his car? he was pepper sprayed and held for 3 hours and sent back to Canada, even though he has a house in washington state.
H. Stones: thats not very friendly lilli
Dexter Fong: Courtesy can be over-rated
Principalpoop: i am glad that personal tragedies like that are still considered news...
Merlyn: So did he say please or not?
doctec: as much as i would love to hang out longer, i have to tell you - this doctec is toast, he needs to crash post haste or he won't be at all functional for what promises to be yet another marathon slog through the day job
donk: does not supprise me, but no, hadn't heard about it
lililamont: When doc and I came through, the border guard seemed like he had a hard on for making people's lives miserable.
cease: there is a lot of paranoia now about drug wars, mexico, here etc. lots of dead people everywhere. very scary
Merlyn: Don't work too hard, doc
Dexter Fong: Here's a great factoid for you folks

Principalpoop: bravo for your hard work doc and lili, bravo, things will get better

Dexter Fong: A clthed man jumped into the Niagara River yesterday and went over the falss (Canadian variety)

Some Call Me Tim: Here is a factoid: There are not enough words that sound "woody" enough.
Dexter Fong: he kept swimming away from the people trying to save him
lililamont: Holy shit. that guy had something on his side.
doctec: at least he showed he is cultured (as opposed to the louts that jump off the american side of the falls)
Dexter Fong: and by the way, he was now naked
doctec: not to mention very cold
lililamont: No surprise there.
Merlyn: sounds like a magic trick
Bunnyboy: Did anyone else see last night's season opener of SOUTH PARK? It killed!
