Damn, I was hoping to snag an extra portion!
Peter comes strolling into the Bistro. Looks around quite surprised about the fact that nothing much seems to have changed since the last visit. Well, expect for all the peaunuts and choklate cakes spread out over the room. Anybody here? Hello....
Alla makes a mango dessert for the lemur and everyone else.

"Shub Naya Baras!" Sentinel
God Jul! Peter
A joyous Christmas to you all and all your loved ones~!
And Happy Hanukkah !
Haha, a bit awkward Hindi. We would more likely say "Nayaa Saal Mubaarak"
"Merry Christmas disposed leader of Egypt?"
Yup, the word mubarak means congratulations -- at least how we use it here. And from the little Urdu that I know "husn-e" (the Egyptian leaders first name) means beauty or "beauty of". I've usually heard the word in romantic poetry referring to a woman.
Wonderful Bistro Peeps: I wish you all a very happy/merry Christmas and a Happy Hanukkah. Hope to be back more often in 2017. I miss all of you and your wonderful personalities. Of course, I miss the Lemurov and LPV. xoxoxo ILC
We miss the ceiling fan ballet!
Realizing that we are missing ILC's great cooking, Alla makes a dessert for everyone at the Bistro.
I enjoyed my Smirnoff Espresso 100 proof vodka when the local liquor store had it on a very low price special. Sadly, they ran out.
You guys have done wonders with the place.
Stringertom has been enjoying the Yuengling beer on tap, and rum and milk, mango martinis, and pints of Stolichnaya are getting the better of other Bistro patrons as the giant main Bistro television plays a match featuring Christian Ruud's son. Alla makes some much needed snacks.
The lady who cooks for me makes excellent cutlets or dumplings with just about any leftovers. The latest one she did was with green/spring onions. Just delectable. Can't believe I've gone through life without this.
prompts Pavlovian response.....saliva glands kicking into overdrive...... yum
pickle martini: . . dill with it . ....sorry
"wuzzzzupp Kumquat!" . : )
Bistro mates, get your Happy hands together in a warm round of applause for birthday boy @Sentinel ! A special eggplant dish is in order for him from The Bistro's culinary staff.
While nothing compares to ILC's eggplant dishes, Alla has kindly provided Sentinel with some birthday eggplant.
For ILC !!!
Wishing @ilovecarlos a very very happy birthday. And many more to come. (April 1st).
You two are like peas in a pod...only separated by a day!
sentipeeds in a sentipod ???
Betcha that's on your wish list!
Will Mr. Kumquat share???
ILC hasn't been around for awhile, so LPV, the lemur, and I are subsisting on Doritos and drinks. Alla is concerned, and drops by to make a healthy beet salad. In the interest of health, I order a beet salad and pint of Stolichnaya.
The lemur loads up on Alla's poppy seed buns, beats the San Diego Bageler in the Bistro Challenger, then learns that he tested positive for opium.
Maria speaks at her joint press conference with the lemur, and insults the Bistro carpet.
I paid the lemur to go through Bistro surveillance tapes and delete any footage that erroneously gave the impression that I was depleting the Stolichnaya supplies without paying. He came across long-lost archival footage of Chris Edwards playing table tennis with Maria Kirilenko in the Bistro recreation room.
Lucie invites the lemur over to enjoy some fruit with her. He asks, "Should I let Mike Bulgakov know that you're here?!" Lucie hold up her hands and waves them, whispering, "Please, no! Please, no! He's so annoying!"
I sit alone and drink a pint of Stolichnaya while watching Nadal play Kyrgios on the Bistro television.
A pint is not enough to wash this annoying lack of effort out of my brain!
Guys like Kyrgios and Tankic are frustrating to watch, but maybe Nick was really too injured. I wish I had the talent of some of the serial tankers. I have seen Kafelnikov and Goran tank matches in person. I was at a match where Goran tanked so obviously at Roland Garros that he was booed off the court. This is why I respect Nadal so much; he always fights and gives his best effort.
*Collects some northern swedish mosquitos for a mosquito sandwhich* OmNomNomNom!
Mosquitos are a problem with summers in the north. "El Mosquito" Ferrero use to be a problem on clay.
Yeah. But the outdoor tennis courts at Luleå TK was nice. Rather non-crowded though. But really nice to play an hour on. The mosquitos stayed away that hour at least.
Alla knows that we have been missing ILC's cooking, so she drops by.
A beleaguered crow stumbles into the Bistro and politely bows. "Hello, my name is Mr. Karasu and I am exhausted. I was flying with my friends, looked down and noticed how beautiful it was below. While staring at the beauty, I got lost and my friends had flown elsewhere. I have been flying too far and don't know where I am."
The lemur, LPV, and I invite him to watch tennis with us on the Bistro couch. I ask if he is hungry, and he says sunflower seeds and saki would be nice. Mr. Karasu enjoys his nourishment and tells us about his Tokyo adventures.
I miss @SoBad ! Mr. KJU, please release him from DPRK captivity.
The last I remember of TW's erstwhile poster, SoBad, he posted from North Carolina. My guess is that he returned to law school, or entered another graduate program. Then again, he might be in North Korea with high voltage electrodes attached to his genitals, and telling KJU how great he is.
If Judy Murray is present I think we all have that dream.
For the record I have met and played with SoBad in real life. Cool dude.
You once called nadal_freak a cool dude. So not sure if that's a compliment
How is NF doing, by the by ? I believe he poasts here by some other username
I thought you once said Nadal Freak emailed you a couple of times and "he's cool".
That was ages ago.
I can't think of anyone else it might have been.
(Sorry if I've got it wrong).
