So, at the [Bar] tonight I wondered about why it's, according to "the man" illegal to smoke cigarettes which causes cancer and that the irony it is illegal to smoke cannabis which cures cancer...

My excuse for all the cricket-chirping is that I am acting in a play. We began rehearsing in December, and the first performances were last weekend.
This is taking TONS of time!
I have a ten minute monologue that I still struggle to remember, and I also have three costumes that I keep improving on.

The play? George Orwell's classic Animal Farm.

So... I'm outta heah again -- three-fingered gloves to sew!

*plop*

Hiya Bar. Long time, no see. Place looks good. Properly dusty.

(claps paws and and a fire roars to life in the fireplace)

Now for something to drink...

Holy shit!

Virginia, the #1 overall seed lost to UMBC! And since hardly no one knows what UMBC means, it's University of Maryland, Baltimore County... wft? Amirite?

This is the first time in the history of the tournament a #1 seed has lost to a #16 seed...

Hiya LCN!!

ha, I was just reminicing about the old original "Bar" thread. You were prominent there when I "joined up"... Miss those days.
Sure have enjoyed all the times. And seeing your business develop and you and Karines art, within. (on that other page...).
Time goes by, glad most of us have stayed friends!

Yep, that old thread was something. Good times.

Looks like we might make it out this year and get dusty. Been a while.

And thanks for the compliments. It's been both exciting and tiring to grow the business. We feel very fortunate.

"fortune favors the prepared mind".......I'd say hard work and talent have gotten you further than luck. Though yeah, "good fortune is good"....

Hi AntiM! yeah, sure miss some of those old characters *sets cigar and single malt in dark corner booth*.

Once in a while, I can still hear echoes from under the floorboards, OMWs. Not sure if it's my mind, or they still exist....

So BaceFook is nice to keep up to date via snipets and soundbites, and I really do enjoy that for the most part but I miss the BBS format. It's more in-depth. You can maintain existing friendships over there. But this format let's you build new friendships.

yeah, I'd agree we build more of a "friendship" here. Probably more focused on similar matters here? I dunno. I do know mostly I've connected closer with folks here than "there". Though, "there" is a wider range. I guess they both have their place.
Sure nice to see folks here, though. Does indeed feel like the "corner bar"...
And, AntiM, to add to LeChat, I too have a piece of Wayward art, hanging in my sitting room. As I recall, it's one Fishy donated, and I chose....so, double meaning. You've done good work there!
