A Firesign Chat


||||||||| 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 May 21, 2009 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood leads ah,clem inside, makes a note of the time (8:45 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern'
||||||||| ah,clem dashes out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's ah,clem?! It's 8:45 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, May 21, 2009 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!" -- then he looks around at the empty room, looks at his watch, and mumbles "...am I early?"
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and Dexter Fong disembarks at 9:11 PM.
Dexter Fong: Well....this is kinda odd
Dexter Fong: Hi clem
Dexter Fong: Unless today is friday, this is Thursday
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and RepliTween falls out at 9:13 PM.
RepliTween: Not the real Tweeny, but an amazing simulation
Dexter Fong: The simulation is stimulating
RepliTween: Hi Dex
RepliTween: It be Thursday
Dexter Fong: Hi Tween...nobody was here when I arrived and I was late
Dexter Fong: Well actually, Clem was here...kinda
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and snorts derisively "Announcing 'cease', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:14 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the anteroom...

||||||||| 11:19 PM -- cease left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
||||||||| Catherwood walks in wearing his pyjamas, yawns, and mumbles "It's midnight here in New York city"...then he falls over and starts snoring loudly..
