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 December 15, 2011 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, December 15, 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 announces: "9:04 PM and late as usual, it's c, just back from Funfun Town."
c: full house again i c.
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Principalpoop close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 9:07 PM tree-stunting plans, and dashes off to the Aviary.

||||||||| Catherwood escorts Dexter Fong in through the front door at 9:11 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Principalpoop: apparently there are 2 more 4 guys talking, somewhere
Dexter Fong: Heigh Hoegh!
