    Making a giant margarita or dipping the toes in. Maybe both.:)


    I feel bad spending the 50-65 for some of my books. What kind of book are you reading that it costs over 100 dollars? Is this another civil war thing?

    Lol....feet...eww :)

    I remember Uni days - when I had to spend $100+ for textbooks, and sometimes you'd get to the end of the course and really wonder if you used it even enough to justify $10!

    OO.
    ....listening to old Semisonic, and impressed with how happy/positive some bands are :)

    Good idea but I doubt they will have it...I will give 'em a call though...never hurts.

    Ernst Kaltenbrunner: Ideological Soldier of The Third Reich - party time, eh?

    No need for togs in the pool...Mav may just be in the nuddy OO so don't spit the dummy if you see a snag! Ahh, I love my new game.

    Okay, who opened their lunch? I don't mean to rubbish but I see some bubbles.

    Ewww.... people are intent on grossing me out, aren't they!

    As for seeing a snag - it's ok, I won't be bringing my magnifying glass, so I don't expect I'll be seeing more than a chipolata :p

    Did my special delivery come today? I ordered 10 cases of Freixenet for the fortnight. Oh right, I see the boxes lined up in the walk-in.....weeeeeeeeee. I'll bring the assorted mixers in over the weekend. I have planned for OJ, Pomegranate juice and white peach nectar. Does anyone have any other requests? I see that Fee has a handle on the punches...good work!

    I can hit the market in the morning if you need any fruit - maybe a yuckaflux out back (we do need to incorporate a little food to soak up some of the booze). My t-shirts came yesterday finally (may be of particular interest to OO:

    http://search.80stees.com/?q=the+big+bang+theory&search=1

    I got the top right and I ordered the top left for a friend. Hehe.

    I can't remember having confessed to my BBT love on here (but I do, oh I do), but then again, I can't remember my own name some days :p

    Anyways, great T-shirts indeedy. That site looks almost as fun as snorgtees.com (hang on, did I confess my love of snorgtees.com? Is that the link?).

    As for markets, I'm off to a festival called "winter magic" up the local mountains today. I can, within limits, acquire many interesting things. There will be many odd foods and drinks for sale, there will no doubt be potions and outfits, and there will possibly be people from the nearby cult - I mean commune.

    Anyone want me to pick them up a socially odd person who may be married to their sister(s)?

    Bud, there has to be an easier way to snag a mate, no? ;) You never confessed your love but you did quote which is more of a statement. Anyone who quotes Sheldon or recognizes a Sheldonism is a bona fide member of the club.

    Would you mind picking me up some quartz if they have any? Fist sized pieces would be great thanks. I would also like some lavender oil and honeysuckle root. Thanks a bunch OO and have fun!

    You're just lucky I'm one of the 3 men in the western world intelligent enough to follow this line of conversation :)

    Oh - and you have indeed guessed the nature of Winter Magic perfectly. All of the above shall be purchased and, err, emailed to you! :p

    Ahh, excellent my good man, excellent. I just love those types of festivals. Sounds like some fun for sure. There is a 'party in the park' we call it next weekend. A South American festival with live music, food, exhibits, dancing, etc. Can't wait! I try to grab a new experience whenever I can.

    In front of my computer, obviously
    The inflatable pool was for jello, but I suppose putting water in it so we can sit there and splash around is okay too.

    How convenient we have all this champagne when I have Orange Juice (for those inclined) and strawberries (for those inclined the other way).

    We need food, or we'll all be falling down soon and we have to last for 2 weeks.

    Tina, CC is a mentor/instructor to some of the finest burlesque pole dancers in North America, don't let the hoity toity books that she claims to read fool you. ;)

    I would use a water bucket to dip them in first making them free of all things gross.:)

    Sounds like an interesting book.

    Why is it so much money though. Orange is right that is in the textbook price tag.

    We have those in this country as well but they tend to stay in Arkansas.:)

    He has a point because I have no clue what he either of you two is saying.

    Is there a chance CC is one of those girls that stripped her way through school? That might make her a little bit on the hotter side.:)

    Gotta wonder what her stripper name might be though.

    A friend is coming over to watch some True Blood and then I will likely crash (I've been up since eleven last night). Tomorrow night would be okay though if you feel like it? And what's with the location change? Pffft! Speaking of dreams, I had a terrible one the other night and I still can't shake it. Has to be up there in the top three (and considering I am prone to frequent nightmares that says something).

    Its an internet date I guess. :)

    The change was long overdue. A man needs to change his location every now and then. This one is temporary until I find a home a like. And with all the different meds they have tried for me I have had my share of nightmares. But the important thing to remember is they are just our brains being jerks nothing more.

    They have there own chat now. They didnt like me and Lakoste telling them to be nice and keep the chat in the chat. Most of the ones that were trolls dont really frequent that one anymore either. I guess it was just that short time period where it was fun to harass people in there.


    That is Svend Karlsen. He won worlds strongest man years ago but is hilarious to watch train. Just screams the entire time and would scare the crap out of the normal people.

    Ahh, weird fun festivals are...indeed that, weird and fun!. Oddly, I'm in a sharing mood, so below are 4 random pics from my afternoon in the cold!

    In order below:
    • Some of the strangest clowns you'll ever meet (saying some rather amusing and somewhat questionable things - the one on the right told me she needed to do a wee wee....)
    • The aforementioned commune was indeed present again doing their somewhat cliched circle dancing
    • The somewhat ubiquitous street performer (thought the 12 foot unicycle riding on a sloping pavement was quite impressive)
    • Amazing bellydancing in an old, old hotel ballroom (with terrible lighting and way too many people crammed in, but I know some of the performers so it was fun).

    Nice. If there's a big variety of food, skip the Himalayan, I was quite disappointed. Geographically, it's probably no surprise it was part indian and part chinese, but I think I'd have liked it to not literally seem to be some chinese and some indian in the same container! :)

    As long as you have Vodka, then I too will partake in some strawberries. Of course, if it's early, I'll have them sans alcohol, but also sans the stupid pathetic excuse for "cream" that SW19 serves up! (The solitary let down of my day at W was the cream ;)).

    But they're still feet! :p

    There was some Big Bang Theory, some t-shirt appreciation, some YuckaFlux (I'm still lost there), some rather bad appendage puns and something else that I can't remember.

    I'm sure summarising things counts as an explanation?

    K...I have noticed a few mentions of food here. I have purchased mass quantities of Irish cheddar and have it shredded and in wait in the fridge. Tomorrow I will make several large vats of my famous mac and cheese. I'll also make several pans of my deeeeeelish eggplant parm. Found a nice sale on chicken. I'll roast up some breasts in the oven and we can use the meat for sandwiches or by itself. Also got some lovely zuccini which I'll roast up and add to the rice pilaf with feta. I'm sure the grill will be available for those that wish burgers or steak. Guess we need bread of some kind to soak up whatever. If anyone is going past a nice bakery, please pick us up a nice selection of good crusty flavorful loaves. Think we have all of our bases covered. Counting down the minutes til I hear that theme song!!!!

    They would be cleaned. Feet dragged through dirt or in shoes with no socks I agrre are nasty but cleaned feet are no worse than any other part of the body.

    Dont even bother trying to explain it I wont get it. Its one of those if you dont watch the show then you have no clue whats going on. I dont watch any sitcoms so I am never gonna get it. But CC seems to enjoy it so be as weird as you like.:)

    Its also nice to see there are strange hippies all over the world. Not to many in my area but I have seen them in my travels. Strange group that I will never ever understand. Why you would wanna live that way makes no sense to me but they hurt no one so they are borderline ok.

    You do Sentinel! We're getting ready for Wimbledon! OO was just telling us about a festival he attended recently, and we're getting menu ideas together. I do a lot of casserole making on Sunday. That way, all I have to do is reheat and I don't miss tennis! There will be lot's of yummy food and drink at the Bistro for the next 2 weeks!

    Hey...does anyone think we need security at the door to prevent vuvuzelas? Man, they are annoying! Perhaps LPV and the Lemur can provide security for us!

    Hmmm, well, they would be preferable exposed and dangling in my mini-pool than some parts of the body....

    Each to their own. I will say that this group always seem to be stupidly happy. Call it brainwashing or call it inner peace, they do indeed seem to enjoy their life.

    I'm sure the next world cup will ban them, it's sad that this one will be remembered for them!

    Family site so I will just say ok

    Its called drugs. They have smoked themselves stupid. When people tell me that weed does no harm I point to dumb hippies who just seem to wonder around pointlessly.


    They had them at the Tampa Bay vs Florida baseball game tonight and I stopped watching after 10 mins. It gets really annoying very quick.

    I was thinking about fingers and noses, I don't know where your mind went!

    Hmm, that's rather cynical. I'm not disputing the effects of too much dope, but equally, I hope the happy, healthy looking kids haven't been hooking in to it!

    I guess everyone's cynicism results in different perspectives. My manifests mainly with western society - I can quite understand the desire of people to retract back to a simpler, more communal and more interpersonal life.

    I agree with you about the vuvuzelas. Unfortunately, the lemur is more likely to provide security issues than help with security. He has been drinking beer and watching Stepanek and Baghdatis matches in the Bistro lounge ever since learning about the Malakas banning.

    J0lly is the case officer for some of LPV's friends, who were recruited to procure an unpaid bet from some swab. They can help with security.

    I am not a fan of potheads. It leads you down the path of looking like an idiot. Anything that messes with our minds is not something I would ever do.

    I am all for a simpler life. I wanna live on a farm and not have much to do with the outside world but hippies just wanna smoke weed and then act like its all about nature.:(

    I assume you don't drink alcohol? I'm not being smart, just asking the question.

    I just don't know that all hippies are potheads - and I usually have a problem with big generalisations. I know that's the cliche, but the cliche is that tennis players are fit and healthy, and I've spent enough time at tennis clubs to know that cliche doesn't work either.

    The idea of living on a farm, etc - that's something I can, as I alluded to - understand. For me it's more likely to be somewhere in the mountains, but I do get the concept.

    I do not. I have in the past but I have not touched it for a long time.

    I could do mountains as well. As long as its away from people it works. I dont like huge cities and crowded places so it makes sense for me to live somewhere that isnt.

    Also I think my date has stood me up. I got dressed up for nothing.:(

    Aah, i recognize Malakas !!! Does anyone remember ... she once had a bear avatar. ..... iirc ..... Boy! does she look hungry !!

    Yes, ilc, I remember that you always do a lot of cooking prior to the Slams. However, I thought mebbe there's some American festival or Football or Baseball event I don't know about.

    Somehow my help manages to take leave whenever FO and WO come about. So I'll be doing a lot of kitchen work during the evening session of WO everyday *sulk*

    Guava juice. As sugary as it is, the Wimbledon party should have some guava juice. Or just guava!

    It's full of, errr, let's say Vitamin XT12, if that makes you feel better about drinking it :)

    Oh trust me, Malakas is still here. She can hear us even if she cannot respond to us, she's lurking quietly in the Bistro behind an assortment of hats and scarves and other disguises, feel free to say hello any time.

    I've a bit of a migraine, but it looks like things are well in hand here. Happy Father's Day to the Daddies, and I'll see all when my skull clears a little bit.

    I have always wanted to try American Mac & Cheese. ILC, is there any way you would be willing to share the recipe?

    Reason #1 to just love your male co-workers.

    I walk into the kitchen at work.

    Male co-worker #1, "Hey (insert name here), how're you doing girl? Haven't seen you in a while. Is everything okay? You are wasting away before our eyes."

    Male co-worker #2,"Oh, don't worry about her. She's holding her own."

    Oh..my....GAWD!!!
