Very simple--in the spirit of Linda Richman, introduce a topic of any sort, and invite us all to DISCUSS!!!!!

A continuation of the spirit of the Worst Discussion Thread.

Just a few guidelines, please. Write in clear English, please. No sock puppets. Everything is open for discussion, but shall we try to keep personalities out of it?

And let me start with: the upcoming Academy Awards. Can anyone remember a year in which there was so little that was interesting among the nominees?

DISCUSS!!!!

"Folks, I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it, don't wait for it, just let it happen. Could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot, black coffee."

Ladies and gentlemen: the coffee bar is to the left, the baked goods to the right. Exact change is appreciated. Don't forget to tip the barrista.

In particular, let me recommend the dark roast Sumatra.

RE: "Don't forget to tip the barrista."

As the great Mr. Pink says, "Uh-uh, I don't tip."

B: You may find the excellent Cuban coffee a suitable alternative.

Rock, I love me some muffins, but the blueberries gotta roll. Now a slice of cherry pie and a damn fine cup o'joe hits the pleasure centers like a velvet hammer, Oh Yeah :)

Mr. Smith--
I think it's customary when lauching a new room to make all the drinks gratis. That vastly increases foot traffic & whips up enthusiasm for the new hot spot.

I say all the coffee and pastries should be ON THE HOUSE for the Grand Opening, and since it's getting late now, that offer should be extended into tomorrow, as well. Patrons are always welcome to tip generously if they feel so moved. Periodic entertainment helps to maintain interest when conversation starts to lag. The baristas could have a competition to see who can whip up the biggest head of foam, shirts optional!

Just an idea. I know a little something or two about marketing a new Lounge concept. :-)

H: Of course--for the first three days, refreshments are on the house. I do hope you tip the barrista, however--he's a whiz at complicated mixtures.

Did you like the scones, by the way? A personal specialty. And as I said--we do have several rather special coffees. I can manage Cuban, but the prep for Greek or Turkish gets a little complicated.

Like Winston Wolf, I like my coffee with lots of cream and lots of sugar.

But yeah, go Argo.

Ms. Fizzy, above, is certainly a comely lass. Rather Vargas in style.

Appreciated, I have it on good authority that this was intent.

I do have an inside track.

Edit to add: The title "Fizzy, Fuzzy, Big and Buzzy"...Here is the story Brian Blush(recent replacement lead guitarist on this CD) awakened from sedation in the hospital and those where his first coherent words.

During WWII "Fizzy, Fuzzy, Big and Buzzy" was the name given the BOMBER that flew over Europe dropping NOT bombs but CANDY and GUMBALLS.

So yeah you hit the nail square and delivered it home as a knowledgeable craftsman would.

Larry Kelley says:
How to kill a moose with just a rock: (Note: this will only work with a male moose-identifiable in the same manner you would recognize a large male bull). Approach the moose stealthily while he is feeding in a pond or pool. Approach from the rear with a suitable size throwing rock at the ready. When the moose puts his head down into the water to feed, throw the rock and hit him in the family jewels. The moose will, of course, do as any male, and inhale sharply in order to scream--and he will suck in vast quantities of water and drown. (Note: Should you mistake a female for a male, as soon as you realize your mistake, run like hell!).

Bitter: Sorry about that. I promise not to do it again. Perverse sense of humor I guess.
