JustAnotherTweenFromEastLA: Phil A did good with Roller Maidens
Bambi: Catherwood, please pour me a toasted almond for the show

Elayne: Don't know how long I can stay, I'm still sore after the biopsy.
Dexter Fong: Among my most favorite albums
Bambi: thank you Catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood answers "It was a pleasure to serve you..."
||||||||| "9:09 PM? 9:09 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Principalpoop should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Principalpoop enters and sits on the couch.
Dexter Fong: Hey poop
||||||||| Outside, the 9:10 PM downtown bus from Hellmouth pulls away, leaving ah,clem coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.

JustAnotherTweenFromEastLA: Hey P
Bambi: hey Princep
Elayne: I'll know by the middle of next week, Fran. I hope it was worth being in the hospital for 6+ hours today...
cease: i was on acid when i first heard roller maidens. it has not been either down nor uphill since then, though my tolerance for cw music is microscopic
Bambi: Heard that, Elayne ... keep us posted
Principalpoop: hi bambi, ah clem, E, all, oh
cease: we want all the best for you, el
cease: no i wont, poop
Principalpoop: citric or battery?

Bambi: for sure Cat!
JustAnotherTweenFromEastLA: Jeeze E, hope it all goes well. Best heartfelt wishes
Principalpoop: good luck E
cease: you can get tiera del fuego. sounds like an internet prediction to me
JustAnotherTweenFromEastLA: Well cease, Roller Maidens is a parody, for goodness sake
Principalpoop: carroll country by porter wagoner was famous
JustAnotherTweenFromEastLA: But yeah, there's a lot of country I like
JustAnotherTweenFromEastLA: And Yes, and Genesis and Return to Forever...
cease: i guess in texas, youd have to, tween
Principalpoop: country and western
cease: long ago, my girlfriend from my home town had a sister who was a semi-pro coutnry singer
JustAnotherTweenFromEastLA: Didn't know a thing about it until I spent most of the 80's mixing at a country hall in Indiana

JustAnotherTweenFromEastLA: Fine album
JustAnotherTweenFromEastLA: Last one with Gabriel
Principalpoop: he stopped loving her today
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood intones: "9:15 PM and late as usual, it's Elayne2, just back from Bronx."
JustAnotherTweenFromEastLA: Or money, in my case ;)
Elayne2: Internet back, sorry about that.
Bambi: great song, princep
Dexter Fong: Poop: longer ago than that
Principalpoop: new and improved E version 2
cease: the strangest thing about said girl friend,
JustAnotherTweenFromEastLA: I became quite respectful of Nashville musicianship
Bambi: wb E!
cease: whom i last saw in 1973,
JustAnotherTweenFromEastLA: Bernie Leadon of The Eagles came through with New Grass Revival
Principalpoop: that usually happens with an old girlfriend, hehe
Elayne2: So let's see what I missed... Thanks for your kind wishes, Tween.
Elayne2: And Dex, no, I'm taking tomorrow off work as well.
cease: was that when we had to sell our house in 2000, our realtor, a woman from russia, looked exactly like said girlfriend,
cease: good idea, el
Elayne2: Oh, and thanks to Cat and PrinPoop and everyone else for the good thoughts. There, now I'm caught up.
Dexter Fong: E: Okay, and good luck with anything
cease: doppelganger, though young enough to be her daugher
Principalpoop: a russian realtor, do you have mexican mechanic and danish doctor?
Dexter Fong: Don't forget the swedish masseuse
cease: a woman from russia, poop. used to be model in italy.
Elayne2: Dex, I'll definitely be going to the comic shop next week though. Hoping for Wednesday but probably not till Friday as usual. It's our last "summer Friday" where we get out at 3.
cease: i gave her a pic of said girlfrend and she showed it to her father and he said it was a great picture of her
cease: if her dad couldnt tell dif, who could?
Dexter Fong: E: Then lets get together if the temp is right
Principalpoop: strange but weird
Principalpoop: believe it or don't
Elayne2: Oh, definitely Dex. I have those three books to return to you (they're sitting in my desk at work).
cease: dex and el, i look forward to meeting you soon
Elayne2: Temps should be bloody hot most of next week, tapering off to normal by Friday, so we should shoot for that.
Dexter Fong: E: Have you had enough Dresden Files?
||||||||| It's 9:20 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Elayne - dead from the fiddlers
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
cease: doc and lili and llan too
Elayne2: And yes, Cat, by the time you come in temps should be, um, temperate!
Elayne2: Dex, I could use the next three if you have 'em. :)
Elayne2: Be right back, have to change my name back.
||||||||| Catherwood says "9:20 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Elayne2 by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
||||||||| "9:20 PM? 9:20 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Elayne should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Elayne enters and sits on the divan.
Principalpoop: hi back
Dexter Fong: E: No problem, when we last talked/chatted? you didn't sound real enthusiastic
Elayne: There, that's better. I'm not a number, I'm a human being again!
Elayne: Well, c'est ne ce pas un human, it's just pixels on a screen, but y'all know what I mean.
Principalpoop: i like number 2s
Bambi: you look better too E :-)
Elayne: I like the characters, Dex, but the writing style is sometimes a bit hard-boiled for my tastes. I'm probably the only person here who thinks Nick Danger is "eh."
cease: fumiyo and i stayed at room number six in a castle in portugal
Dexter Fong: E: No problem, when we last talked/chatted? you didn't sound real enthusias
cease: when desk gave us the key, i said, I'm not number, i'm a free man. they didnt get the ref

Principalpoop: what is 6 in portuguese?

JustAnotherTweenFromEastLA: hence the moniker

Principalpoop: hehe

Principalpoop: here, no evil
JustAnotherTweenFromEastLA: My TV is in my 'attic'
JustAnotherTweenFromEastLA: I got quite tired of the social programming they were foisting upon us
Dexter Fong: Wow, You gotta an attic?
Bambi: sadly true Cat (about people being seduced by media imagery)
Principalpoop: i like social programming, except the commericals
JustAnotherTweenFromEastLA: And that's saying something for a child of the 50's who put on his MM ears to watch the MM club
Dexter Fong: When I grew up, all we had was a roof

Principalpoop: we had an attic

Bambi: yes, please pass on our best thoughts for Honey as well
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
H.Stones: her bath is leaking, the fridge is hosed, the electrics are dodgy the neighbours are loonies, theres a leak in the roof, bears and rattlesnakes and skunks in the yard but hey, its better than Stamp Toilet, the name i gave to her old place in Cerro
Bambi: wow
H.Stones: at least she has oxygen at that this altitude
Dexter Fong: Sounds like a fixer-upper
cease: up i usually beter than down, stones
H.Stones: its social housing Fong so they should have fixed this before they placed her there. I know its America etc, but it sounds awfully like Britian
cease: you make it sound like a bad thing, stones
H.Stones: in the UK, if the government makes a mistake, its your fault
Principalpoop: move the bath under the leak in the roof, 2 birds with one stone
JustAnotherTweenFromEastLA surrenders

Dexter Fong: Cat said "we are eternally at Honey's side" to which I siad etc
