YAY! I found my VODKA! It was merely in a box shoved in behind some other stuff stored with unrelated stuff. Of course.

Only I am out of fruit juice... and a screwdriver would be nice, since my dad seems to feel he should go with me and, apparently, advise me on how everything should be done. My attending in 2006 and his never attending doesn't seem to be a factor, since he is the expert backpacker and camper.

Yup..
Gotta say, vodka is handy, now and then.

My bottle was leftover from TTITD, and added to at Decomp from several other partial bottles, and is now an extremely handy delicious blend.

Along with nice and varied organic fruit juices, I can pretend it's almost downright healthy!

Hi BVB. Hope the weather where you are is ok. Saw some scary weather stories on TV last evening. For us it is quite cold. Have a tennis game later this morning and it will be sunny but about 45 degrees. Don't know how much tennis we'll want to play at that temp. I guess we are kind of wusses out here not used to those types of temps. Brrrrrrrrrr

Brrr. It was 9 degrees yesterday morning, up to 30 for the high. I haven't looked this morning, but it is single digit for sure.

So damn hungry. Tomorrow is the big day. At least the hospital has free wifi.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery AntiM!

Hey there Marty, glad to hear you're playing tennis, though I imagine those tennis balls become a bit more contrary and sluggish in the cooler weather eh?

Good to see everyone, and hey.. it seems we even have a new/returning barfly or two! Woohoo!

*slides drinks down to new/returning barfly or two*

Say.. it would seem that it's almost time for someone to build a new bar! Any volunteers?

Our traditional rustic style is nice, but once in a while I wonder if we ought to go for a little more class.

Hi BVB, Did not notice much slowing down of the tennis balls, but the way my octogenarian tennis buddies play, any slowing down of the balls would amount to a dead stop. But it felt good despite the 42 F temperature. Played 2 sets and won them both 6-2, 6-3, so came off the court feeling pretty good. Best day so far.

Elliot, I love the new decor of the bar!!

Not crazy about the bar decor. Looks to shiny and cold. Is there a comfy cuddle couch somewhere in a corner?

The glass-chrome-and-plastic was a brainstorm, not an edict. I would probably vote against it myself.

Edit to add:
Here is a more realistic idea, even if recycled from last year's design contest:

Good morning/afternoon, Bar! I'm mostly back and recovered from our LA trip... MAN that was a lot of fun. We landed at LAX on Thursday afternoon and the traffic gods mostly smiled upon us, we wound up making good time to Hollywood and went directly to the theater (we had tix for a marathon of all six existing plus the shiney new Star Wars film at the legendary El Capitan). The staff was really fantastic, getting us checked in and issuing laminates and handing us packets and getting us to our seats with minimal effort. Apparently we'd just missed Billy Dee Williams, who'd popped in to say hi to the group. After Jedi they had another break (with a pipe organist playing, too) and they fed people and had some tv host drawing seat numbers for prizes. We didn't win anything, but it was a fun crowd and the host was funny and it got people worked into an even more excited frenzy before the laser/light saber show. I know it's been out a little while (and broken a few records too), but no spoilers other than to say we really liked it. In fact, we saw it two more times while we were in LA, then again over the weekend and have plans to see it again tomorrow night.

Through a combination of luck and planning we were able to make the rest of the weekend using mass transit - the theaters we were going to were all a very short walk from the metro subway line that ran very close to our hotel, and the concert venue was a three or four block walk. The shows were great, though there was a long delay in cold (for us) weather on night one. The album Muse is touring is called Drones, and in the show they have these spherical drones that fly around for a few songs here and there... and I guess the logistics of getting those things working right has been proving really painful. So yeah, that first night we waited more than an hour in the cold (we had GA tickets, the floor was all open for standing), and then only a couple of the buggers were working. For the second night we planned a later arrival - with the stage setup, there really wasn't a bad view from anywhere on the main floor and we'd rather have a more casual, relaxed experience. It was awesome - walked right up, no real line, got our drinks and headed on down to the floor and found a spot against the rails towards a side of the stage we hadn't been near for the other shows.

Our airport experiences weren't bad, either. We got there early expecting more holiday travel delays or TSA holdups but things went smoothly, so we found ourselves with extra time in the bar. During the course of a drunken stumble on Saturday I banged up my knee pretty good, and also managed to pick up a nasty cold, but fortunately both those things are largely behind me.

Great pics, AntiM, and hoping everything goes well today.

And woohoo for bar pics! And for vodka! That reminds me, I need to make a supply run to replenish our stocks...

I dunno, first that seems a bit default (I don't see either electric shredders or mass moop making catching on), but symbolically it's already kind of the same thing. The big burns represent a culmination of everything that came to get to that point, burning away all the baggage and weight, clearing the proverbial way for something new and for future growth.

I've another update on AntiM, this time by way of a post she made around midnight PST...
Can't sleep. Can't bend my right arm to type . ugh. Surgery was fine, results and recovery ooky. Will post tmi note later.
Thanks for all the love and support.
