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 January 10, 2013 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies MutedTween inside, makes a note of the time (8:44 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
||||||||| New notice: 'No simulcast tonight, Tweeny's music box is down :-('
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and pipes up "Announcing 'cs', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:59 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the Aviary...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, January 10, 2013 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
cs: hi tween
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in and pipes up "Presenting 'Dexter Fong', just granted probation at 9:00 PM", then leaves hurriedly.

||||||||| Catherwood leads Principalpoop inside, makes a note of the time (9:02 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.

Principalpoop: hey E
Elayne: Evenin' all! *yawn* I feel like I've been shooting reds and yellows all day.
Elayne: I haven't been able to keep my eyes open the last 4 evenings.
Dexter Fong: NRA member eh?

Elayne: Just one more thing to read.
cs: you say that as if it's a bad thing
Principalpoop: so you don't want my link to a guttenburg european pre-history of the united states?
Principalpoop: the turks cut off the trade routes to india and china, and so the europeans looked for another route...

Elayne: My lumps, my lumps, my lovely lady lumps are all things like skin tags and behign polyps. I know this alreday but they still insist on cutting me open to prove it.
Principalpoop: not just ladies, the skin maid gets lazy as we get older...
