    Welcome wrxinsc. Once you've passed the Komrade Bulgakov initiation right of passage, you're good to go!

    ...especially after Mike's plied me with 10 too many 'Siberian-sized' shots of Stoli ...

    "ILC, my beloved 'Kumquat', watch this!... I dedicate this to you my beloved:
    'el jumpo, de murerte!....the jump of death!"

    [​IMG]




    Ah, speaking of Komrade Bulgakov, here's the handsome devil himself:
    [​IMG]

    again, welcome wrxinsc

    The lemur is usually in charge of the initiations. I did volunteer for Maria Kirilenko's initiation.

    Since it is important that nobody pulls a muscle at the Bistro, I had her demonstrate her flexibility for safety reasons.

    I then gave Maria her test. She had to point to her name out of a choice of two.
    [​IMG]

    She passed the test! Maria was allowed into the Bistro and can come in anytime she wants.

    How did Dedans acquire a photo of my breakfast?

    Welcome, welcome to Wrxinsc! That's quite a mouthful. We'll have to have on of our clever Bistro peeps give you a proper Bistro nick. Don't worry about the pirate and lemur...they have had their shots. Allow me to clean off a barstool for you...have a seat!

    Cocktails on ILC!!!!!

    smart girl - the Maria.

    and after very carefully studying those pictures of her preceding her test documentation; I think I will stay around awhile.

    Many thanks for the fine initiation - even if absent of the ghost creature's ceremony.

    You have no idea :roll:

    Just waiting for a few shared IPs to pop up so I can justify a few bans here and there, you know ;)

    Looks like the trolls have been getting tricky, though. I'm trying to get the suggestions together from this thread together so we can discuss changes and maybe fix some outstanding problems with GPPD. Just trying to find the time :p

    I havnt touched GPPD in a long time so best of luck to ya.

    Would you like me to spam threads about federer, Nadal, Joker, and how they are on the roids? Would that make your life easier?

    It would take about 8 gallons of whip cream to create a suitable bikini for my fat behind, so I'm guessing no. And you should thank me for that.

    I actually didn't see any issues with this one last I checked, but looking into it further... we'll see. I'm not worried about the good Dr. if he isn't really bothering anyone, there are many more posters that are much less harmless than he ;)

    I like DD to much to make all that spam for him. I would feel like i helped by drawing them out but I am sure he reads enough bs threads already.

    At least I stopped giving crap to a certain people in Tips and techniques for him. :)

    While I am enjoying a bottle of Stolichnaya and watching Borg vs. McEnroe in the 1980 U.S. Open final, the lemur runs in, puts an empty glass on the table, and asks me to fill it with Stoli.

    He explains that the Senator, Janet, Jill, Dedans, and ILC are playing poker downstairs, and he needs a drink. I ask, "What's wrong with that?" The lemur explains that I didn't quite hear him correctly.

    I fill the lemur's glass. Borg hits a great passing shot. The lemur jumps up, pumps his fist, and yells, "Yes! I think Borg is going to win this one!"

    It was enjoyable drinking quality whiskey with the Senator and his staff. It seems that a few cases of single malt Irish whiskey "fell off a truck" and found their way to the Senator's office. I see why Dedans and ILC always speak so highly of the Senator.

    Last tennis tournament for the season...

    It always feels kind of sad. The last outdoor tennis tournament for the season. Sort of like it's the end of the summer. My daughter Emma is now playing the outdoor regional championship here. Semifinal tomorrow at 0900. After tomorrow Emma basically goes into "hibernation mode" (as far as tennis goes) until next spring when the outdoor season starts up again. Now it's time for the ice hockey season!

    So.. Perhaps, some folks would like to join me in a salute (free Absolut Vodka shots for all!) for the way tennis was supposed to be played - outdoor, in the sun, during the summer! Next to a beach!

    Here's to tennis!

    Tennis doesn't get much better than on red clay in the Swedish summer, especially near a beach. Many people do not realize how great some of the beaches in Sweden and Denmark can be on a summer day. I raise a shot of Absolut to tennis! Skål!

    I tell the cab driver to stop in front of the Bistro, grab my worn Fischer bag, and hurry inside. No CC? I tell the lemurs that they can start the party.

    I empty a can of tennis balls and fill it with ILC's mac and cheese, the best in Bistro City. I leave a few boxes of mangoes for the lemurs, fill my Fischer bag with bottles of Stolichnaya, and head back to my cab.

    The sign says that today's special is ILC's tian d'aubergines. The lemur notices the sign and yells, "Any tian d'aubergines left?" There is laughter upstairs.

    Sentinel yells down to the bar, where the lemur and I are downing Stolichnaya and Heering Cherry Liqueur drinks. "Looking for the tian d'aubergines, Bulgakov? It's too late! LPV and I finished it off while watching a Baghdatis match with Malakas."

    Malakas, now enjoying some pickled herring on the pool-side deck, takes her drink and heads back to the television lounge.
    [​IMG]

    She passes the lemur and me, drinking and playing chess at the bar, on her way back to the upstairs lounge. We wave to her; she waves back.

    The sound of miniature helicopters descend from the ceiling fan. Miniature ceiling fan blades support the balsa helicopters, which carry servings of tian d'aubergines to the bar. The lemur and I look up and thank Dedans and ILC.

    After finishing our drinks and ILC's special, the lemur and I decide to grab CC and Fee's office chairs for a race down Bistro Hill into the Bistro City Harbour. The chairs were fast, but who knew that they wouldn't float? We race back to the bar and erase the surveillance footage.

    Sounds good Mikheil. I almost forgot: anyone have a tandoor? Assuming Senti's referenced Doomsday doesn't come about, we could then also whip up some chicken tandoori, tikka chicken and some yummy kalmi kababs...slap some nan bread with garlic and herbs on the oven walls.......and 'outside' the tandoor clay oven, samosas, papadums....slow-cooked lamb in savory spices...mint chutneys...hmmm..taste buds turning 'eastward' ~ * cue 'dueling sitars' * ~

    ...and wash it down with some of Mikey's finest Stoli of course! "DA!"

    But truth be told, I'm just pipe dreaming ..... ILC owns this one. Her call.

    I have never tried fried okra. This makes me think about tempura, a Portuguese contribution to Japanese cuisine.
    [​IMG]

    Regarding eggplant, Sichuan eggplant in garlic sauce is pretty good if made right.

    ^ Some people fry the okra in some kinda batter, but we also do it without any batter but make it very crisp. That's very difficult I am told. Also you can fry some garlic chunks and mix it in.
