Sure thing Sensei!

*goes to work on the champagne*

I reckon as long as your only ruining the event for other people, we could still have a good time XD

Cheers

Makers, Turkey, or Knob Creek? Tell you what, how about one of each?

'Night Sensei... I'll have one stashed in the cubbyhole on the left of the barback for you... Just wish *I* could ruin an event like you! So jealous, but then again I guess I need more practice! >>giggles<<

Ahhh, lessee... New Orleans is calling bar... Something exotic... green... I know, Absinthe over and neat for the house, this one's on the boss who gave me all this OT!! Works well with the bubbly!

Then I have to boogie on out of here... after 9 extra hours, I just wanna... pass out!

Have a great night y'all... lock up when you go, 'K? >>smooch<<

remember this guy??? i thought i handled it pretty darn well. what would you have done?
"the calicowboy files"
That was before I set foot in the bar and I honestly did not read back to take in the history. How would I have handled it? I would have ignored the bait he was putting out there. Eventually he would have realized he wasn't going to get the reaction he was looking for and would have left.

We are now fortunate to have the plonk feature which allows us to simply ignore those who we don't want to hear from.

Now, if we're going to quote things here, I think we can go back to the first time uBeRpLaYa came to the bar. Pretty normal and natural, bought Heli a drink right off the bat. Now I'm not going to claim to have any actual firsthand knowledge of what went on between the two of them, so I won't. Something happened and that colored the view of some people here toward her. I would suggest you do a post search on her and read some. I don't see any particularly abusive behavior. She got a bit full of herself here with the "I always get what I want" line and ensuing discussion. But I thought that this issue got resolved some time ago between the parties involved. Hell, she even publicly apologized here. Do people have to pay for their transgressions forever?

Coffee? A shot of Maker's is what I need this morning, and then it's onto a very crazy day. And that's after a glass of wine from watching the funeral mass this morning.

Hello everyone! My computer took a dump on me while I was under the NEB and I was stuck until now. Had to crawl around until I found my sister's computer to get my self out.

Sensei wrote:How typical!

I've just received the greatest sig line of all time (thanks, Bugger!) and I wanted to show it off here in the bar, and there's nobody home.

Now remember, the best sig lines are not the ones you make up yourself. They're like playa-names, they should be given to you by someone else.

Fine. I'll just sit right here until someone shows up.
Love the new signature. It had me chuckling pretty good.

... >>grumble... snork<< G'morning all!!! Look at this rain come down - I think they moved Seattle 1100 miles south!

Did someone mention Coffee? Wow, I could go for half a pot right about now!! That 18 hour shift yesterday left me dragging... or maybe it was the Absinthe shooters... with Maker's chasers. Who thought *that* up??

In fact, would'ya mind cracking a couple raw eggs in it for me please?... maybe a little hair of the badger...

;~) Thanx!!

I think with all this cold weather I need to start thinking spring which for me means margaritas. Tall and cold. A few pitchers for the bar and two for me.

And please go crazy with the chutney. I think one of my favorite chutney's would be mint cilantro chutney. It is good stuff. I first had it on tandori chicken and about melted.

You're my Hero, 'nik! Mmmm... warm and slightly gooey, just the way I like it... Isn't it neat the way the white kinda solidifies and swirls aroound in chunks, kind of surreal looking...

Better get yesterday's reports to the boss... I'll bring the cup back inna bit... what's this say on the side?... Hmmm... "Tis better to have loved and lost than to be stuck with a real loser for the rest of your entire, miserable existance!".... Cute!

OK. Tomorrow morning I'm going to try that Sue. I like eggs, I like coffee, and I like egg drop soup. No reason why this shouldn't be good.

Just remember to compost or discard the shells.

Don't eat them.

You know, that could be the best part. I love to eat unshelled peanuts. Especially the kind that have been soaked in something to make them spicy.

For an extra-hearty pick-me-up, just slip a block of ramen into that coffeepot. Garnish with unground coffee beans and a dash of soy.

Hey Bucket. I'm just about to slide out of here for the day. Hope you're feeling better. Can I get you a drink before I go?
