    Then we would truly have a reason to go drinking at Bell's....
    Are you on Crack? Although if we are spread out in the audience, and we see something that is inconsistent with most zoning law. I will leave this one up to everyone else.

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I won't be able to make it now. I have a City Council meeting, and have three things on the agenda.

    Have a beer (or two, or three, or four) for me!

    off-topic question:

    Maister and Michealskis - why the hell are you two conversing on Cyburbia? Aren't you two in, like, the same cube?

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Yeah, I always though they could communicate telepathically with those headsets and stuff. Screw the internet! I'd take telepathy anyday!

    Because I got yelled at for writing notes, folding them like little paper foot balls, and shooting them over the cubicle wall.

    Let me ask you this - if you went to the zoo would you rather walk into the lion's den with an armload of raw meat or would rather pass it through the bars. Trust me the 'barrier' is in everyone's best interests. Besides, he looks much better in cyberspace than in reality.

    I would like to remind the audience that the man on the other side of the 5’ fabric covered wall was voted (by several) to be the most likely to go postal. When I hear the squeak from the chair rocking back and forth, I start to move my chair away incase I need to get under by desk.

    Aw shucks, I can't make it either anymore, we have an appointment that night and we'd get down to K'zoo too late, It's about an hour drive or so from here. Sunday nite would've been better. IS that still a possibility? Hate to bail on ya Jen but maybe you and Card can still swing by later? How long are you going to be in K'zoo for anyway?

    If you can make it into town on Sunday Night, I think that Monico Bay could be a good possiblity.

    Maister and I just talked about that, and we realized that they are still going to have beer there... Lets say 8pm at Bells (push back an hour so Maister can play Zoning Dictator.
