The Bar 2014 Edition

Post by theCryptofishist » Sat Oct 12, 2013 5:56 pm

Ha! Stealing a march on Trilo.
Besides, we can have two (or four, really) going on at once. At least for a little.

For those feeling nostalgic, long live The Bar, Volume #4 and the original bar thread!

WooHoo, Drinks for everyone!
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

So, do you ever wish that when you changed your "signature" the posts you made with the old one kept the old sig?

Ha - you beat me to it while I was checking on permissions and moving threads for the 2014 event boards, Fishy! I'll do a bit of editing/renaming though, from the discussion we had in the Bar Volume 4 the consensus seemed to be that people wanted it to have the event year/season instead of volume or version numbers.

Okay, the old bars have been torched (well, padlocked), and link to this one in their final posts. Where's my drink?

Wow! The new place looks great. We need more tables, sofas, pillows. Oops. I forgot it's a bar not a den of sin. Can I have a Beautiful please? In a dirty glass.

Oh my. Doesnt this place look wickedly unwholesome! My kind of bar. :mrgreen:

(pours himself a tall glass of WATER since the light bulb over the espresso machine is kaput and the instructions are too faded to read)

So WTF is up with BBadger lately? I caught him being nice TWICE this week! I thought poor Savannah was going to fall off her virtual chair in surprise yesterday. I'm worried about the mental state of our resident meatcake-with-teeth. :mrgreen:

Had fun last night! The First Mate and I went to a farm in a town called Snohomish, near here, for their Haloween corn maze, pumpkin patch, haunted house, and hayrides... they even had a beer garden, which we visited...
But get this: on their hay rides, everyone gets a paintball rifle, and you all shoot the live Zombies that attack the cars!

Any of you in the Seattle area, PM me and I'll give you the details, not trying to be an ad but it was pretty damn cool.
I mean, guns, zombies and beer? Hell yeah! And they do it at night, with black lights shining from the cars so your fluorescent paintballs work like "tracer" rounds!

Sounds like one hell of a maze, Captain. Hopefully Foxfur pokes his head in here soon, that sounds like something he'd be willing to make a road trip for...

Sorry to hear you're under the weather, OregonRed. I prescribe a course of strong drink. Get your germs drunk so your immune system can take advantage of them ;)

I was up later than I probably should, after finishing things up here I hopped in-world to tinker around with my camp installation for Burn2. I had only intended to do a couple things, but I was on a roll and next thing I knew, hours had gone by. Anyhow, happy sunny Sunday, I'm off to get ready for decom.

Wanders in, looks around....grabs a seat at the bar

Hmm... Never been here before.. I like it :D I'll have a coffee and a shot of Bailey's.

Captain... That sounds cool. I love the idea of using paintball guns to shoot the zombies. I wish we had something like that here.

It was an awesome day here. The weather was beautiful and I took advantage of it by going for a 2 hour hike through the bush with my dog.

Salesman knocks on a door - its opened by a ten-year-old kid.
He's wearing a cocktail dress, feather boa, high heels, and tiara.
His face is fully made up: mascara, lipstick, eyeliner, the lot.
In his left hand he has a martini, in his right a cigarette.
Salesman asks: "Is your mum home?"
The kid looks down at himself, then says "What the fuck do you think?"
