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 July 21, 2011 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| 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 Son of Firesign falls out at 6:35 AM.
Son of Firesign: Catherwood, answer this call on your video phone.
||||||||| Catherwood walks right past Son of Firesign
Son of Firesign: Win a ringy dingy, Catherwood.
||||||||| Catherwood steps alongside Son of Firesign and queries "Typing my name just to rile me, eh?"
Son of Firesign: Get with it, Catherwood.
||||||||| Catherwood gets with it.
Son of Firesign:
Son of Firesign: Buy me a ticket for Captain America on July 22, Catherwood.
||||||||| Catherwood buys Son of Firesign a ticket for captain america on july 22.
||||||||| Son of Firesign hurries out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's Son of Firesign?! It's 6:39 AM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
||||||||| Son of Firesign steps in at 8:15 AM carrying an obsidian door knocker.

||||||||| At 8:16 AM, Son of Firesign dashes out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 9:31 AM, dragging RedPillTweeny by the hair and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
||||||||| It's 9:55 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| RedPillTweeny - dead from dengue fever
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, July 21, 2011 - 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?"
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:04 PM and late as usual, it's cool cat, just back from Hellmouth."
cool cat: is everyone dead from heat?
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Principalpoop close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 9:10 PM tree-stunting plans, and scurries off to the vestibule.

Principalpoop: ahh so yammy
cool cat: hey otto
Otto Yamamoto: greeting
cool cat: i say the word "japan" and yammy shows up. coincidence?
Principalpoop: add the radiation to that, and indeed hellish

Otto Yamamoto: I thought I'd turn up
cool cat: i used to live near the infected area 40 years ago. thankfully not now
Otto Yamamoto: I'm my own Axis
cool cat: he's the one stop axis man
||||||||| Catherwood leads H Stones in through the front door at 9:37 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
cool cat: hey stones
Principalpoop: at least you have an axis to grind
Principalpoop: your highness, my lord
||||||||| Catherwood leads Bunnyboy into the room, accepts an I.O.U. as a gratuity, grumbles something about 9:37 PM, then departs.
Bunnyboy: Yo da.
Principalpoop: and bunnyboy too, hip hop, the plot thickens
cool cat: i'm drinking a british cidre (blackthorn) so maybe that's what brought him
cool cat: nd bunny too
H Stones: the plot looks a bit thick, try adding water
cool cat: it was just poop and me for the first half hour, and i was back and forth baking chicken upstairs
Principalpoop: use chicken stock, or fish, whatever the market has
Otto Yamamoto: Too bad I can't reach in and get a glass
Principalpoop: a plate of shaving cream would hit the spot
cool cat: it's as hot as hot coffee or tea, otto. are you sure you want a hot beverage?
cool cat: is it pleasent in seattle, bun?
Otto Yamamoto: I drink coffee in summer, why not?
Bunnyboy: Poop: Ask Murdoch. He almost got one.
H Stones: yes poop, it did when we threw it at Murdoch
cool cat: we need some sun here so i can repaint my gates
Bunnyboy: Grey, then sunny, then grey again.
cool cat: cool?
Principalpoop: yes, what a bunch of bold faced liars, goodness
Bunnyboy: The meterological term is "fell off the table".
cool cat: i saw the sun so i thought i'd walk over to the rec centre and lift weights. wearing sweat shirt and swerat pants, walking 5 blocks, i was surprisingly cold
cool cat: i was trying to air out the quilt and it started raining so i had to bring it in
Principalpoop: only 107 today, 41 C, a tad warm
H Stones: i note that Nino is now completely lost
Otto Yamamoto: It's been warmish round here

Principalpoop: never recovered from the slovakian, czheckinian hacking
Otto Yamamoto: It's 32 now, feels like 39
H Stones: currently only 18 C here
Principalpoop: brrrr stones
H Stones: it all part of living on an island at the same lattitude as Fairbanks
Otto Yamamoto: Send that to Manhattan for next weekend pls
Principalpoop: Douglas?

||||||||| Catherwood leads Elayne inside, makes a note of the time (9:48 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
H Stones: he probably attracts lots of wasps
Elayne: Evenin', all!
cool cat: and speaking of new york....
H Stones: hi Eolayne
Principalpoop: Hi E, hot enough for yah?
Bunnyboy: hi El!
Elayne: Can't stay long, too busy. Need shower and so forth...

cool cat: el, that's what i felt in japan
Elayne: Tomorrow's going to be the worst of it. I get out of work at 3 PM, which is probably going to be the height of the heat, or the heat of the height...
Principalpoop: ugh
Principalpoop: get a tan walking around in the english rain stones? who is the walrus?
Elayne: Ugh is right. I'm going to shower now. Will try to log on again after I'm a little more comfy.
H Stones: its terrible when you cannot afford either the hot or the cold
cool cat: ok el. stay cool
Principalpoop: ciao, or sleep if you can
Elayne: Oh, speaking of the walrus, it wasn't Paul, and I should know because I saw Paul in concert last Saturday. Best show I've ever been to.
cool cat: that's the reason we live in north van. we don't get the kind of heat/cold the rest of the coutnry gets, usually
Elayne: Later, all.
||||||||| At 9:52 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Elayne!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
cool cat: great to hear, el
Principalpoop: silly love songs, anybody else tired of them?
H Stones: even on a grey rainy day, it gets hot in a green house, never underestimate the power of solar radiation, polar explorers get sunburned through the clouds
Otto Yamamoto: I heard a lot of good word about Paul's show
Principalpoop: i knew that
cool cat: i loved paul's first two solo albums
