* wintermute has swum in the Atlantic and the
Pacific. And the Arctic. And lots of seas.
Sam: When did you get to the Arctic??
wintermute: When we were living in Norway.
Sam: There isn't an Arctic Ocean, though. That would have been a sea.
Mensekemeser: Uh, yes there is.
Sam: I confused myself.
wintermute: We took a winter holiday up to Lofoten, which is lots north of the arctic circle.
wintermute: And I managed to fall in the sea. Chilly.
wintermute: There was ice crystals forming in the sea.
Sam: Ah, but it still would have been the Norwegian Sea, right?
wintermute: Nope. We were further north than North Sea.
Sam: Either that or the Barents.
wintermute: This was the Arctic Ocean, I'm fairly certain.
Sam: Oh, here we go. capitals.com says that the Arctic Ocean *includes* the Barents Sea. So you were in both at the same time.
Sam: So, at this point, I must ask, WERE YOU CRAZY OR SOMETHING????????????? THE ARCTIC OCEAN WAS NOT MADE FOR SWIMMING!
Beasty: wm: Two for the price of one. Bargain!
Sam: Unless you just dipped your feet in or something. In which case, that's pretty cool.
wintermute: I didn't do it deliberatly. I fell in!
flyingcats: I don't think you can fall in the ocean and only get your feet wet.
flyingcats: Unless it's a really wimpy ocean.
Sam: LOL LOL!!
Sam: That rocks.
wintermute: I grabbed onto the leg of the pier, and my brother went to get someone to pull me out.
wintermute: I was in there for about a minute, but it felt longer.
Sam: I bet. Brrr!
wintermute: When they pulled me out, my arms were frozen around the pier. It took ages to prize them off.
So Beasty was going on about Americans being weird
Cynthia: Beasty: Would you rather we set Zarni off on a discourse regarding Arsenal?
Cynthia: See, it could be worse.
Beasty: Cynthia: Americans are charming, wonderful and completely normal. I stand corrected!
* DemanusFlint heard the funniest joke he'd heard in a
long time today:
DemanusFlint: "Why can't Helen Keller drive?"
DemanusFlint: "Because she's a woman."
* Cynthia laughed, but does this on principle:
RinkChat: User DemanusFlint has been kicked from the room by Cynthia.
DemanusFlint has left.
DemanusFlint has entered.
BurgerKing: That's a cool one.
DemanusFlint: I was expectorating that. But you have to admit it's pretty funny.
Cynthia: Like I said, I laughed, but it still had to be done.
ahmoacah: You were expectorating? EWW.
ahmoacah: Go expectorate somewhere else.
Zarniwoop: He was spitting, in other words.
ahmoacah: Cynthia: You do know DF was expectorating on your foot?
* Cynthia throws her shoe at DF.
RinkChat: User DemanusFlint has been kicked from the room by ahmoacah.
DemanusFlint has left.
TOM: You should've thrown something bigger. Like a dime. :-P
DemanusFlint has entered.
DemanusFlint: And I'll stop now.
Cynthia: TOM: Shot up. My feet are not that small.
* BurgerKing throws Cynthia at DF.
TOM: If you say so.
* Randy throws TOM at himself
TOM: RANDY YOU JERK
Cynthia: eeeeeeeeep BK do nut throw teh Cynthia kthxbye
* TOM throws himself at Randy.
Nyperold: That could be misconstrued,
* BurgerKing throws himself to the crowd of beautiful women flocking outside his window.
ang: We might get TEH SNOW this weekend!! Yay!!!
Cynthia: ang: OH NO NO ONE WILL BE ABLE TO BUY BREAD
ang: Heehee, yeah, Louisville'll shut down.
Cynthia: ang: You'd think everyone would be accustomed to this concept of snow.
ang: People around here are just stupid when it snows.
Cynthia: Regrettably, no one is, and it will be Drive Like A Dingbat Day.
Darien: We have days like that around here. They're called "Sunday through Saturday."
Faux_Pas: Wow. "Dingbat." You must be in a good mood!
FP's label: Faux_Pas [op] [away] [stripping]
ang: NO ONE WANTS TO SEE A NEKKID FAUX PAS
Cynthia: WHAT ABOUT TAMARA
ang: Oh, yeah, maybe her.
Darien: I want to see nekkid chiX0rz. Does that count?
Mia: My dad is a stripper.
Mia: Darien: I'm telling Mina on you.
ang: Darien: Go to FP's house, he's inviting all the hot chixx0rs to his pool and hot tub.
Darien: ang: WHOA. I'm THERE.
Darien: Mia: Don't bother. I'll tell her on me for you.
Mia: Darien: Hrmph. Fine. But only if you tell her.
Faux_Pas: No. Hot chix0rs only.
Darien: Her response was "Okay."
Darien: FP: Even if I promise not to be nekkid?
ang: Darien: Get a telescope and just be nearby.
Darien: ang: Aww. No fun.
Faux_Pas: I guess that would be okay.
Darien: FP: Cool. Lemme know when it's going down.
Darien: Err, I mean, when it's HAPPENING.
Mia: I STILL NEED A JOB NOW KTHX
ang: What's the interview for?
Mia: Just something customer service related. I'm getting pretty desperate.
ang: Ah. I hate doing customer service. I run out of nice.
Faux_Pas: That's code for "porn".
Mia: FP: I'm desperate.
ang: Yeah, like Cynthia says 'library' and means 'Hooters'. ;-p
* John's wife is on her way to retrieve him
[->John] So then would that make her a golden-haired retriever? *ducks*
* John lowers Cynthia into a vat of boiling oil
*John* MY WIFE IS NOT BLONDE
[->John] NO NOT QUITE BUT STILL CLOSE ENOUGH FOR THE PURPOSES OF DISCUSSION
*John* AND I AM NOT A STICK TO BE FETCHED, MY DEAR FRENCH FRY.
* Selah is shocked by the violence
Cynthia: Selah: Well, I sort of started it.
* John yanks Cynthia back out before she can incur third-degree burns
[->John] OF COURSE NOT SILLY JOHN YOU ARE A SQUEAKY TOY
* John lowers Cynthia back into the oil and fries her to a golden brown.
* Selah is still a little shocked.
John: Now you look like George Hamilton!
* John retrieves Cynthia from the vat before she overcooks.
*John* THAT'S WHAT YOU THINK RAGMOP GIRL.
[->John] HEY THAT IS ACTUALLY VERY BLOODY OFFENSIVE
*John* YOU ARE NAUGHTY YOU HAVE A DIRTY MIND AND IT'S IN THE GUTTER AND YOU ARE TRYING TO DRAG ME IN THERE TOO BUT I WON'T GO, OH NO, YOU SHALL NOT SUCK MY LAST VESTIGE OF CUTENESS AWAY!
[->John] aieeeeeeeeeee I am DYING I didn't even THINK of it that way and ahhhh LOL LOL LOL
* John cracks up and falls into a million billion itty bitty pieces all over the place
* Cynthia tries to fix John but crumbles into little fried giggling bits.
John: "little fried giggling bits?" Somebody! Somebody record that for posterity, please!
Morris: Makeup rules. I just think it's annoying the way it comes off
when you want it to stay on and stays on when you want it to come
Zullin: Like pants.
Zarniwoop: (Dramatic pause while we try and figure out if that was deliberate)
Counterpoint: (Yes it was! The crowd doesn't applaud.) :-P
* Lindra looks at her clapper, and waves it.
* Lindra frowns, then blows up her five-six foot alien (one of those really annoying ones that go 'squeeeeeeeEEk' when you so much as touch them) and waves it.
* Zarniwoop blows up Wales and waves it.
* Counterpoint waves his five-six inflatable alien, too. ŽŸ¤!
* Lindra gets out the blower-upper and adds some more air to her alien, so it squeaks really well.
Brunnen_G has entered.
Counterpoint: Lindra: WOW! I didn't notice that alien was a Brunnen-G. Cool.
* Brunnen_G scrolls back.
* Brunnen_G does not squeak.
* Brunnen_G is not 5'6" or inflatable, either.
Aragh has entered.
Counterpoint: Are you a squeeky 5'6" inflatable alien?
* Lindra climbs back on and looks at the Brunnen_G.
Aragh: No. But some of my best friends are.
Aragh: Brunnen, I bet you do squeak from time to time.
Counterpoint: How unfortunate.
Brunnen_G: Not often.
Counterpoint: The very statement "my best friends are inflatable" speaks volumes.
Aragh: It certainly does not. I was simply referring to my collection of balloons. :)
Brunnen_G: Your best friends are your collection of balloons?
Brunnen_G: That's very sad.
Aragh: That's right. Some of them even have smiley faces painted on them.
Lindra: And some of them are inflatable five-six foot pink squeaky aliens.
RinkChat: The chat room topic has been changed to 'Brunnen-G is definitely not a 5'6" pink squeaky inflatable alien.' by Brunnen_G.
Aragh: Naw. I don't have any inflatable five-sex foot pink squeaky aliens.
Counterpoint: Five-sex? Oh my.
Counterpoint: And here I was thinking there were only two. O_o
Sundragyn has entered.
Sundragyn: Nice topic.
Brunnen_G: Sundragyn: One likes to think it would be obvious without me having to make it a topic, of course.
* nomie pumps fist in the
Brunnen_G: Is that like PUMP AIR INTO LUNg?
* NormalAsylum pumps caffiene in bloodstream
* Brunnen_G, coincidentally, is just now writing the
trip report about the day we met Darien and Mina.
Darien: BG: MAEK SURE U ADDS TEH PICTARES LIEK 4 TEH RINKUNION!!!
Brunnen_G: Darien: d00d. I have REAL pictures for this.
Brunnen_G: All my pictures from the US trip are real except for the RinkUnion ones. And many would say those are real too, in a greater metaphysical sense.
* Darien likes fake pictures better. They're funnier, and don't look so much like him. ;-}
Brunnen_G: The RinkUnion pictures merely capture the true essential character of the people involved, not just the superficial physical aspect.
Zarniwoop: You sound like someone trying to justify the Turnip Prize.
Brunnen_G: Zarniwoop: You're just jealous because you're not on my RU Photos page.
Darien: BG: I like how you said "merely X, not simply Y." That was pretty slick. I can't tell which side is supposed to be diminished in respect to the other. ;-}
Brunnen_G: Darien: Yeah, I'm cool like that.
Brunnen_G: That's what comes of having a text box small enough that you can't remember how a sentence started by the time you finish it.
Morris: Hey, BurgerKing, remember that time I stole all your internal
BurgerKing: Morris: No.
BurgerKing: But then, that might have been before I had to get a new brain.

BurgerKing: If all goes to plan.
