Hey, Sadie!
I do not understand the question. Why do you ask a question where the answer is a given?

Meh... I didn't do it. They would have known it was me. It just seemed like a fair trade
for having to see butt crack every time I look out the window for the past 3 weeks and
letting them use the theatre restroom every day.

Good morning, Bar! Man, it looks all sunny and nice out, but as I head out to start setting up to work on building a couple tables.... it is very brisk out. It reminded me of bright and early on the playa, super bright but still super cold. Mind you, in the desert that's before 7am and here it's almost 10am and still not quite warmed up... ah well.

I hope everyone's on track to having a great weekend, whether it's relaxing, or traveling, or spending time with friends and family. Is it too late in the morning to offer a round of mimosas?

That feeling you get when you have completed the Placement Questionnaire and requisite camp plans and shot it off into the ether and then.... nothing for three months. And nobody around you seems as excited about the whole thing as you are. Yeah, that feeling.
A plan is what you vary from.

Good Morning Bar!
I had the honor of meeting and visiting with Nadia Murad earlier this week. She is one of
the thousands of Yazidi women that have suffered unthinkable crimes at the hands of
isis. Global Samaritan brought her to the theatre where I work, to tell her story and help
raise awareness and funds to aid those who are still captive and/or those still in refugee
camps and trying to survive in horrific conditions. It was heartbreaking and inspiring. I'm
not trying to push any issues here...or be debbie downer...just wanted to share a moving
experience I had this week. She is an incredible young woman. Brave and strong and
determined to stand up for her people. Reading articles or watching news stories is one
thing, but looking her in the eye and speaking directly to her, well...it really puts things in perspective...
She was warmly welcomed here and was able to spend a little time just being a girl...the
director of the organization that brought her here (a dear friend) paired her up with his
daughter of similar age and her friends for dinner...It was a good plan and offered some
light hearted companionship for Nadia.
Sorry this is so long... I could go on but will spare you.
With that, I will raise a glass and a prayer to Nadia and the Yazidi's.

HI Sadie! good on ya, and them, for giving her freedom and a chance to live. Thanks for sharing, and thanks for not "beating a drum" but for telling us a little. Is there a link where people could learn more, if the wanted?
This is a great place to share personal stuff like this. Yeah usually it's all "fun and games" here in The Bar, but good stories and such are wonderful.
Sorta takes me back to my early days on eplaya, when "The Bar" and "Bar2" threads were very active, and we all chatted about all sorts of things. Good times.

Thanks Yggy. That breakfast hit the spot!
I am tecnology challenged...and limited to my phone for internet access unless I'm at
work. A google search for Nadia Murad will bring up tons of info, as she is a Nobel
Peace Prize nominee.
Another search for Global Samaritan Resources Abilene TX will also take you to an abundance
of information.

Weird thing is now that it's legal I don't need to do it anymore the point has been made. Geewhiz what can I do next. Oh yeah get ready to go to the burn baby's birth.
But I will say this there are a lot of good musicians playing music in honor of 420 day so it's time to dance always time to dance.

My daughter insisted I take her to Cheba Hut for the $4.20 special and swag.
Kind of funny, she doesn't smoke but she's way into the 420 meme.
so yeah happy 20th bar! :mrgreen:

Hey bar peeps! Enjoying my coffee this morning. :coffee: Sup....
I have a question. I've been lurking the Page 2 thread for the past year since joining ePalya. While I get what this thread is for, what is Page 2 for?

Is it just to bitch about other threads without starting a fire in them? A place to face palm about what others post in other threads. A place to just spout of on anything with no rhyme or reason. Call me thick but I'm not getting it.... :oops:

Hope everyone is doing well..... 8)
2nd time better than the first. And the first was pretty Freakin' Great!

elder, You got it. It's much nicer to post it there than it would be to tell the selfish, clueless buggers to their faces. Now go to Page 2 and read what I write about your post.

Ah, Page Two. I can give the history of it. Long ago, before we had the awesome mod team, and before the mods had a lot of options, we had to moderate with our sparkling personalities. Eplaya was notorious for being snarky and unhelpful, a jaded old timers club who never helped newbies. I would gently remind people to post a few helpful answers before jumping on the snark train. This evolved into "wait for page two before snarking". Once we began actually moderating replies with our shiny new mod tools, the really funny yet mean posts started to vanish into the cornfield. The Page Two thread was created as an outlet for stuff you would not post on a thread, but didn't want to waste a good pun or meme. Yes, it is passive-aggressive. Never link to the original thread, never post names, and readers must guess which thread it is a reply to, but no reveals, and no conversation. It is also a way to get folks to read through forums they'd normally ignore, to try and guess the root post. Page Two must be used with discretion, or it will vanish into the cornfield also.

Ah! My suspicions were correct. :P

I will admin I have some topic areas blocked as I can only take so much. So trying to determine what thread a poster is talking about is a challenge.

thanks Ratty & Antim.... :coffee: Well, beer right now. ha!
