Oh Jesus, if I give you a rundown, I'll probably mess it up, but you can read the beginnings of the drama in the case studies thread involving Badger's love paen to Tancorix/Kinetic. Then you can visit the Fuck thread to review some ass lashings. I recommend staying in the Bar and staying the fuck out of it. I mean, this is a fucking BBS, who really gives a flying shit?

I'm with ya on that. I rarely venture outside the bar, and I never get into it with folks.

I just got a bottle of Dewers out of the mini bar. I'm slamming it and heading for thee conference center where the drinks will flow for a while and then I think I'll be meeting up with DVD.

How much that Dewer's (my dad's drink, may he rest in peace) set you back?

Hey if you do see DVD, give him my regards, please.

oh cool, cool!

I spent half the day calling people who owe me money. I love doing that! Give me my money! (so I can give it to someone else, really, that's what it is).

Oh, Lord... I’ve got so much out right now that it’s not funny. I wish people would pay up as fast as they want they’re jobs done.

WOOOOO HOOOO!!

somebody pour me a drink and pinch me.

In an hour, almost completely out of the blue, I now have a dinner meeting with the owner of a casino/resort who is interested in purchasing my homemade soap for a casino in Mexico, a resort in the Caribean and a hotel in the U.K.

What the....HUH!?!

And this is just from trying out a couple of little bars from my test batches that I was making as "proof of concept" (proof that I could actually make soap), i haven't even done any REAL production batches much less even adding scents and coloring...

I'm not even sure of PRICING yet...

FUUUUCK MEEEE!

Bushmills... STAT!!!

Yeah, I try to make weekly calls but sometimes i don't have enough time. It really makes a huge dif in keeping the cash flowing though, and that's what it's all about. You put your left foot in, you take your left foot out....oh wait a minute, got on the wrong track there.

Profit is one thing... but cash flow is everything.

And speaking of $$$

right on rodent. good luck with that. I love those out of the blue kinda things. Some of my best jobs have come from that phone ringing unexpectedly one afternoon.

Rodent, that's awesome that you make soap! I've made that glycerin melt soap before, that's kinda fun. I'd loveto make some real soap but dealing with lye kinda makes me shy away.

M sits on a bar stool and her foot involuntarily starts tapping to the tune playing.....

Oh, man... I can’t stay long Daddy-o. I’ve got'a skidaddle back to my shop pad. I’m slavin’ late tonight and duty calls. But you guys and gals feel free to keep up with the hootin’ and hollerin’ in my wake.

Later...

Thanks! It could be nothing, it could send my life into an entirely new direction....

Now where's that Bushmills? (I need to calm my nerves a tad)

Heya kids. Seems like the drama has cooled off a little. How's life in the bar?

Sorry to rain on your parade, Bucket!
I know you'll have a great time! My uncle and his wife went there probably 5 years ago. They saw Macho Pichu (sp). Looks really cool!
