lily: sub par
''Bob'': I assume that you are a fellow WCNI listener and/or DJ then, Mudhead? :)
Mudhead: Well El can meet us at the Sun
Elayne: Okay, next time we plan to be in the New London area, we must contact "Bob" and Mudhead. Got it!
Zooky Fogg: They were crazy for believing so then and are crazy for claiming so now - but crazy never invalidated good ideas.
Elayne: If we're doing CT right we need to get DocTech and Lili too.
''Bob'': Elayne, I think we actually spoke by phone once a couple of decades ago when you were here for Xmas.
Elayne: That's pretty much my CT trips now, just to see them.

Elayne: Mudhead, I'll raise the subject with DocTech, see if he and Lili are interested.

''Bob'': The negtives will cost extra, tho
lily: Sorry to hear about your aunt e
Nabby: Sorry Elayne - none of my aunties are left
Elayne: She would, Mudhead. She never had a bad word to say about anyone, she was full of love and generosity.
Zooky Fogg: You can't tame that one and would be good not to try.
Cat: She lives on in your memories, El.
Elayne: The cortege was at least 25 cars, as I recall. It was like burying a dignitary.
EWeston: Respect for the lady
Elayne: She earned it, EWeston.
Mudhead: Massive
Nabby: Indeed
Zooky Fogg: Whistle a happy tune when walking through the ruins.
Cat: My mothers' sisters were all very different from her.

Mudhead: raises a glass
Bunnyboy: Best Fuzz Bass Ever.
Cat: I've heard of water bottles, El.
Nabby: yep up up up
EWeston: A toke
Elayne: I inherited my tendency to be judgmental from Mom. Or maybe it's just learned.
Nabby: Nilssonnnn
shoes for the dead: now he sails
Cat: That is itself a judgement, El.
EWeston: Its often what pass's for free will
Nabby: pin gnailed yt
Elayne: Mom would pester me to call Kenie every week, and that turned into every month, and Kenie never said boo, she was always so happy to hear from me regardless.
Zooky Fogg: How many people are off earth right now?
Elayne: Many is the time I wished she were my mom instead of my aunt, especially when I was a kid. I was so jealous of my cousins.
Merlyn: if I jump, do I count?
