    Yeah, yeah -- it's all fun and games until someone stuffs YOUR barn.

    Great post, huh? I'm wondering if Robert had a few in him when he posted that the other night...

    Welcome to the jungle..........oh, where is Drak!! We cannot be all about destruction without him. And I await the entry of Fee as well.

    Have a sound sleep Sani. :) Yeah, I don't do circuses (too many mules). LOL.

    JK, I do believe I like you! Heycal, one of these days it would be interesting to see you on the chat! ;)

    I'm not sure I even know what the "chat" is. At first I thought it was this thread, but I think you are referring to some parallel real-time chat board where some of you also congregate?

    That's a fact - the chat crowd. Haha. Great people get on there. I like them, but there is no fighting on the chat. The link is in the TW chat thread. If you are not too scared. Mhuahaahaa. ;)

    It's basically the same people here, but just chatting in real time and using all sorts of internet lingo and acronyms that I won't understand?

    Nope. It is easy to understand as people keep it simple there. It's the only chat I have ever participated in, and I'm inviting you to talk. Now the choice is yours - either way you are invited, I'm on there right now.

    Drags self into the bistro with head hanging low...sniff sniff sniff......looks around...no one here....sigh....just as well....I'll put the coffee pot on....think I'll have a little arsenic in it too...build up my tolerance for the future....How, I ask you, can a man take a siesta after a 6-1 first set trounce? I guess that only one man can answer that question...I sure can't. Anyway, I promised drinks on me all week and I still stand by that :(

    I'd have really liked Moya to school Djokovic and teach that super-arrogant-kid-who-is-absolutely-full-of-himself a lesson in humility. Sadly, it is not going to be...

    No matter how bad my day is as long as I am alive and healthy I have no right to complain.

    How about yourself?

    OK, first of all, cantankerous old men are funny. This is because of a few things, one, they aren't very observant, two, they talk really funny, and three, it's really funny when they go off on someone for no apparent reason. Numbers two and three, I can relate with that, history class sucks. My teacher is making me write papers, every two weeks, 3-5 pages each. :p This "Joe" fellow sounds...ummmmm......."unique"....what did he do exactly?

    The thing is three or more people posted in those spam threads in moments of them being posted. Yet, there were no reports for any of those threads. I was not able to delete them until 20+ minutes afterwards. Not very efficient.

    Nah I hate dithery old men...he smells aswell! And we cant afford for him to go off on a tangent our exam is in just over 2 months!

    I do actually like history...its just i always get put in a group with a load of slackers so it makes me look bad when we do rubbish...also i got a C in our recent exam (lowest grade ive got in history all year)

    What do u mean "unique"?If you think he's the person i was talkin about having a baby..thats my teacher they just has the same name (feminine jo,masculine joe)

    I meant your friend Joe that embarrassed you. I stand by my claim that history class sucks. (Or at least my teacher sucks) I didn't realize that you had exams in two months, you're right that messing with the teacher would be bad at this point. After exams though.....;)

    Good morning fellow bistro patrons.....or is it? We had semi-spring here for a few glorious days...balmy days...able to get on the courts and hit a bit :) Today, it's 30 degrees colder than yesterday and, of course, I have a major sore throat from running around coatless the past few days...
    Hand on while I get Peter his bottle of scotch....there you go Babe....enjoy
    Think I need a hot tea with a touch of brandy...medicinal purposes only mind you. Ahhhh, that's better. Ahhhh, my mind wanders back to being in Ireland and having a sore throat...good Irish tea with a good blast of anything...makes me smile just thinking about it. I think I'll try to be there next St Patty's Day. Was in England for St Patty's in 2001...what a blast that was. What is everyone doing tomorrow? Whatever you do...be careful...don't drink and drive...stay safe..
    Looking forward to watching Haas vs Murray tonight.....
    Have a great day all and a good night.....blows kisses to all
    Peter...just throw the empty bottle in the garbage when you leave, OK?

    Decided to come back in....Peter is still drinking his scotch...good I'm not alone...Jeez, just had a weather update...they're calling for snow later today! It was in the 70's yesterday...85 the day before and now this???? My yared is flooding from the steady rain we've had since around 9 last night.....my poor little flowers outside are so confused....think I'll fix myself a coffee/baileys combo....ahhh that's good. Lunch time...what should we offer as a special? Fish and Chips or should I make a big pot of stew? Suggestions?

    Glad to see you're over the tournament Peter. (Judging by your avatar) I know it's still cheating, but we'd have never seen diegaa again.

    I'll tell you what is going on!

    Absolute pandemonium! Cats and dogs living together. Destruction! Mass hysteria!

    Whoosh! CC, what's up? Looks like the bistro has gotten a bit out of control.

    Only because you broke mine first. You missed all my Miami tennis matches, all my Miami table dances, and all my Miami fun! I don't like being stood up! We had plans!

    Cool post^^

    The "C" wasn't hard- I found it in a few seconds.

    The "N" was a little tougher.

    The 6 gave me fits. My eyes were going crazy ! LOL

    I could have probably done a little better if I hadn't drank so much, and wasn't blind folded. LOL
