MTB Babe!

How lovely to have you back! You were having such a really horrible time when you were last here, so I do hope you are well and happy now!

It's just great to have you back. [Smile]

Wow! I feel so loved! It's really nice of you to remember how much trouble I was having back then. But my direction in life has completely changed now, and I've become a completely different person. I did some soul-searching in Japan, a close friend committed suicide, I busted my arse to get into grad school. All of that stuff has affected me a great deal, I assure you. I feel like Picard probably did after he was absorbed by the borg and returned to humanity.

Yes, Druid, exactly! Well, at least I'm sure that's how it was perceived by all the guys! [Embarrassed]

Dude, I've been wondering what happened to you since Katrina killed New Orleans!

I escaped Louisiana just in time! In in Pennsylvania now. Take that, storm!

So...do all talks like that center on chickens? What about roosters (so as not to be gender biased)?

It's not gender bias. Male chickens are roosters. Females chickens are hens. And not all talks like that center on chickens. Some center on fruit flies or nematodes.

I'm glad you got out in time!

Actually, I work with a guy named Micheal Bolton.

Apparently he misses the days when there was only *one* famous Bolton. Now he has to put up with both.


Mostly from me [Big Grin]

He hated Red Dwarf.

I used to tell him to be grateful his name wasn't Arnold Rimmer.

Great to see you back round these parts, MTB Babe [Smile] I was just looking at some of your photos of your time in Japan via your website - did you stay in Sendai?? The photos brought back loads of memories of my time on an exchange with a host family there! They took me to Matsushima and other places nearby and it was a fantastic experience ...

That's AMAZING!! You were in Sendai too! [Applause] How long did you stay? Other than the racism here and there, I absolutely loved it. Did you ever ride on the tourist boats in Matsushima? The ones shaped like animals?

I was only there for a couple of weeks, unfortunately, and it was a good few years ago, now. But I absolutely loved it, too [Smile] The girl I was staying with was awesome - she and her friends just couldn't get enough of taking pictures of me making peace signs, and after school was done for the day she would always take me to the mall so we could sit in the for-display-only massage chairs in the home superstore and eat pancakes with ice-cream. Fun times [crazy]

Animal boats? What's this about animal boats? Never saw them, but it definitely sounds like I missed out [Happytears]
