||||||||| Catherwood announces, "The time is 4:33 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for November 18, 2010 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood snorts derisively: "7:50 PM and late as usual, it's Woody 1, just back from Elmertown."
Woody 1: Always ahead of the so-called game. Try and chat later.
Woody 1: Game? Is this a game? I thought I was in Puttyville.

||||||||| At 8:10 PM, ah,clem vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Dexter Fong close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 8:58 PM tree-stunting plans, and hurries off to the anteroom.
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, November 18, 2010 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"

Dexter Fong: Yep there he is, the Clemster...the clemydia...the well never mind

Dexter Fong: Uh Oh...Multiple identity
ah,clem: exactly
||||||||| Catherwood escorts Mudhead inside, makes a note of the time (9:12 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.

Mudhead: Gran Turk, Nassau
Dexter Fong: llan: It's Proctor & Bergman relating how the P&B act started

PrivatelyOwnedTweeny: It wasn't released, LL

Bambi: Definitely chicken pox related ... Been reading up on it due to Mudhead and several others who have had shingles as adults
PrivatelyOwnedTweeny: Sounds like no fun at all
Dexter Fong: I almost got shingles but I settled for aspalt siding
llanwydd2: actually I've heard shingles are very painful
Bambi: When it hits nerves and does irreparable damage it is quite dastardly condition
Mudhead: So painful the voices in my head were arguing
PrivatelyOwnedTweeny: What year was this done, clem?

Dexter Fong: Mud: Too bad, you'd think that those difficult conditions would bring those voices together

Dexter Fong: But don't worry, you'll get a taste of the action...a piece of the take...you'll be able to dip your beak
llanwydd2: don't care much for pumpkin
Mudhead: Im making my famous pumpkin hash pie
llanwydd2: spices belong in curry. not in dessert
PrivatelyOwnedTweeny: Sounds interesting, Mud
Principalpoop: anything with hash is fine with me
Elayne: I might not be able to participate next Thursday, we're going to my cousin's house for Thanksgiving. We'll see, I don't know what time dinner is there yet.

Dexter Fong: Sometimes you eat the turkey...sometimes you are the turkey
Elayne: Don't know the menu either, Cat. My cousin was kind with the invitation but not forthcoming with any other details.
Principalpoop: you should bring something E, bring me lol
Dexter Fong: E: She didn't even ask you to make the cranberry sauce
Bambi: some spices belong in dessert .... pumpkin pie or pumpkin bread wouldn't be the same without some spices
llanwydd2: well, that's why I don't really care for pumpkin, Bambi
Elayne: She hasn't responded to my query as to what we should bring. I love my cousin, but I hate not having info.
Principalpoop: my sister-in-law uses too much orange peel, yuck
llanwydd2: it just tastes like nutmeg. no offense to our friends in CT
Dexter Fong: Orange peel yuck, it's not zesty
Mudhead: Its Cranberry fer crisakes
Principalpoop: oysters in the stuffing or no?
Mudhead: none taken

Mudhead: nutmeg has a strong astringent taste
Principalpoop: yes, a little goes a long way
llanwydd2: interesting, princ. do banana peels really have an effect?
Mudhead: lil bit goes a long way
Principalpoop: cardomon is cool
Principalpoop: look at me and decide for yourself llan
Dexter Fong: Poop: You did it wrong, supposed tosmoke the nutmeg and eat the bananas
Principalpoop: cardamon ahh that is it
llanwydd2: cardamom is the only spice I can accept in dessert.
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
PrivatelyOwnedTweeny: lol P
llanwydd2: and only in certain indian desserts
Bambi: here's an excellent Cranberry Walnut salad very similar to the one I had many moons ago... if you don't like celery, mandarin orange slices are a nice replacement

Principalpoop: sounds like a national lampoon character
Principalpoop: Anita Drink, Annie Rexea, Billy Barty
Dexter Fong: Poop: BB was a very famous "little people" actor/comedian/film Star
Principalpoop: i probably know his face
Principalpoop: is it still legal to throw midgets in some states?
Dexter Fong: Poop: More like the top of his head
llanwydd2: ever see Legend with Tom Cruise. Barty was one of the elf-type characters
Principalpoop: nope, missed that one
Dexter Fong: Poop: As long as you don't cross state lines
||||||||| Catherwood enters with doctecazoid close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 10:08 PM tree-stunting plans, and scurries off to the Aviary.

PrivatelyOwnedTweeny: You have a borg prosthetic, P?
Dexter Fong: Poop: That's the exercise...the kind you do at night....alone....with only scarlet O'hara to see
doctecazoid: back in ct? i wasn't aware i was away
Principalpoop: fong knows hehe

doctecazoid: if we are all borg, does this mean we can all beat mcenroe?
Dexter Fong: Doc: You were occupied before...Blast those Huns...
doctecazoid: i blasted those huns but more keep comin' at me
Principalpoop: if you don't mind the cursing afterward
Bambi: that is so true, doc! we were talking about that earlier today LOL (black because so few have money)
cease: work still oppressive, doc?
Mudhead: I'll beat him at his racket
PrivatelyOwnedTweeny: Resistance Is Fruitful
Principalpoop: 15 love baby
Dexter Fong: You are all Borgs...Resistance is futile...The score is now 367 Love
doctecazoid: hey, i'm nothing if not behinf the beat
Mudhead: lol
Principalpoop: futile, is that an onaemontopea word?

PrivatelyOwnedTweeny: lol P
Dexter Fong: well fone

doctecazoid: like the old smos bros joke - the one about how political leaning is tied to how much clothes you wear
Principalpoop: did I write that? i meant just to think it, oops
doctecazoid: the ones who wear less clothes are known as the lessons
doctecazoid: the other group? wait for it...
Dexter Fong: You are too modest Poop

Principalpoop: red fox blue mood or what?
doctecazoid: good idea e - spliff away
cease: maybe miles davis will hire you
Elayne: It's mostly tension, Bambi. I'm not used to being tense at this job, so when I have a bad day it really stands out in relief.
Bambi: blue on blue...wasn't that a phrase from a song...
Dexter Fong: Pleeeeze, Doc....Don't work blue
doctecazoid: tense is the normal operating mode at my place of employment
Principalpoop: working for the russian mafia, certainly doc
Bambi: I know what you mean Elayne ... been there done that ... got the t-shirt lol
doctecazoid: @#$&*!!!!!
Elayne: Used to be for me as well, Doc (as you may recall).

doctecazoid: i was psychologically abused by my boss - and all i got was this lousy t-shirt
Principalpoop: such language, $#%&^% you too

PrivatelyOwnedTweeny: Sorry, I don't listen to heavy metal
Elayne: Thanks, Doc and Bambi, I'll tell him you said so.
llanwydd2: everyone in the north would move south if they had better sense
doctecazoid: i don't know if inspiration is the right word for it really
