That's great, Captain. "as if they'd never seen a boat before." indeed. This will be the year of the Land Yacht in many of those people's memories.

Captain, I expect you had all the lights lit, (I hope!) yes?

Captain G, what a gift to your whole neighborhood. You are awesome.

Fishy, I always figure that anything done in public is just that: public. But I can see that Google Glass in a restroom might seem intrusive. Fuck those people though.

Elorrum, how nice that you let that customer play tree with you! 8) 8) 8)

Morning, ((((MDF)))) YG. Another sunny, clear and mid 60ish day here in the SF Bay Area. Had fun with my kids and grandkids yesterday. My UCLA graduate grandson got a job in SF after 4 months of looking. Starts work on Monday!! That's really good news. Opened the kiln yesterday morning and was very pleased with the results. Think I'll do some more pottery today. Have a fine Sunday, kiddies. Now for some brekie.

we've done a list more than once in bar threads.
and I know Fishy made an uber great reference thread for old bar quotes and such. it'd need to be something easy to find, so maybe even a thread named "bar acronyms" where it'd be an easy search term? Dang, way back at the beginning of "bar2" they were thick!!
Anyone remember "OMWs"? I do, well I guess prolly because I made it, but,there were tons of them. Sorta fun, just trying to figure them out. Sputnik, was great at it! someone would post and he'd figure it in no time. Of course, some of the acronyms are words or phrases in themselves.

Jella says hi. She doesn't come on as much anymore since her work blocked it and her home computer is dead.

Boy that was a long weekend, always annoying when grown men throw a hissy fit.

I had 2 ladies working the bar the night before Thanksgiving. What on earth was I thinking! The busiest night of the year and they both self-destructed under the pressure. They made it. Didn't kill anyone, quit or humiliate themselves too badly. The rest of the week was a breeze. Now.. on to Christmas plans.

{{{everybody}}} I hope you all had great weekends or holidays or whatever it was you wanted to celebrate, enjoy, or get away from. Pandorra and I don't do the default holiday thing, so we enjoyed the last several days of hanging out, tinkering around with art projects, cooking, reading, catching up on programs and documentaries, and that sort of nonsense. She went off to bed early (it's looking like she's going to have a busy week ahead), and I'm up late wrangling a squirmy cat who wants to 'help' me tinker around with some cracked earth/playa dust textures I'm trying to render.

Sorry to hear about Jella's dead home machine, tell her we said hi! For what it's worth, she's not alone in the employers blocking the message board department, I've gotten a few emails from people in the last few months who were having the same trouble. There must have been something in a conference or article about worker productivity making the rounds or something.

Woohoo for getting to take the yacht out for a spin in the neighborhood. The world would be a better place if there were more mutant vehicles on the streets, if you ask me.

If someone can find (or wants to make) a post with the common bar acronyms, I can go edit the first post to put 'em in there so we have them for reference.

Morning everyone!

I did get another turkey dinner last night, there's a burner friend up the road who had a gathering. Mostly musicians, and plenty of folks who do't go to the burn, but have heard of it. Great group of people, tons of food, and live music. Close enough I can walk it, even with my knee acting up. I should get Larry to put lights on my new trike and get it to the front of the bike corral where I can get at it so I can ride over.

There's a storm rolling in, going to get cold here. Ugh. Time to find the snuggliest blankets.

well, one down, two to go.......

AntiM: good to hear you got out, maybe feeling a little better?
yeah we're expecting a cool down, but not much precip. dang, we're really starting to fall behind on water!

and, good news:
I heard from Moonrise!! he's doing much better, has lost 72 lbs.!! and is fighting early diabetes. He sends his regards, and hopes to come back to visit when life slows down a little for him.

Hey UJH!! who says you're no fun?! I always look forward to your posts.......and now that we've actually met, I can see that smile in my mind when you make a joke..............please, don't ever feel unwanted here!!!

Yggy, much better. I did some time in the pool this morning, felt good. Sad news though, my Lady Gym is closing at the end of the month. Back to Gold's with me. I'll miss the crystal chandeliers.

I should go out and tidy up before the storm. Yuck.
