BobS: ya ok BobS: dinner is late, eh???????? rich-c: actually, Meleagris, you had me fooled - I didn't know Dr. D. knew French - you been teaching him? Meleagris: Dinner was #2 here tonight, after Fred. FredK: I was the first to be cooked... Meleagris: I know enough bits and pieces to put together "Meleagris is a bird". BobS: got the whole rest of the week to goof off !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! rich-c: yes, I've noticed an inclination to take the long weekend Meleagris: Dr. D. has 4 days off, really 3.5 since he has to do some prep in the robot lab for the Egg Hunt dress rehearsal coming up on Tuesday. rich-c: even my buddy the factory test driver is doing it BobS: and it is not even thansgiving in Canada......... rich-c: so he's going out to drive one of his test routes in his own car BobS: had that last month, no???? rich-c: right, you had Columbus Day, we had Thanksgiving BobS: columbus..........ba humbug BobS: somebody woulda found the continent anyway rich-c: you like Vespucci better, maybe? FredK: or Copernick BobS: sure!!!!! Meleagris: Britannica Online tells me that the Vikings found it in about 1000 AD. rich-c: well in fact they did - the Vikings, at L'anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland FredK: GO ALLS GO!!!!! WE WON THE GREY CUP!!! rich-c: not really, Fred - I would say rather that Edmonton lost it BobS: think that is surely correct, just ol' columbus got the credit BobS: so what ' BobS: s new????? rich-c: I still cannot make sense of that third down gamble BobS: some sucker is alwasy stealing another's credit FredK: okok you are right we did not deserve it BUT WE WON! BobS: COOL Meleagris: It gives Little Italys everywhere an excuse for a parade on Oct. 12th. rich-c: didn't say you didnt deserve it, just said you got it gift-wrapped FredK: true BobS: I see..............and they have one of those in Cleveland down the main business district in li'l italia?????? FredK: the excitement is that it took some 25years to get there again! Meleagris: Yes, there is always a Columbus Day parade. rich-c: well, they have been to the Cup more recently than that, just haven't won it Meleagris: There's a granite statue of Crisoforo Columbo in front of Holy Rosary church. FredK: yes, the parade was today! Meleagris: Make that "Cristoforo". rich-c: you realize of course that as an Easterner I am obligated to cheer for the Eastern team FredK: great to hear this, hopefully not obligated by force though ay? rich-c: I just hope you had a good celebration - the victory was earned FredK: Well not such a huge fan, but its fun i gotta say.... rich-c: nope, obligated by geography ;-) Meleagris: Just don't celebrate like the morons in Columbus, Ohio after Ohio State beat Michigan... FredK: lol rich-c: what happened, Rich? Meleagris: We in Northeast Ohio would like to form our own state and leave everything south of the Akron-Columbus-Dayton line to the Southerners... Meleagris: Riots in the streets, by the victors! FredK: Oh no here we go.....splitting issue again ....ahhhhhhhhhh Meleagris: Burned, overturned cars...rocks thrown from overpasses... rich-c: it happens these days Meleagris: Public drunkenness...like happened in Detroit after the Pistons won the NBA championship. BobS: ya, now just hink what they will do IF they win the national championship Meleagris: Bleh. BobS: I believe that they are in the finals yes?????? Meleagris: Probably dig up Woody Hayes and parade his mummy around in a glass box... Meleagris: Assuming that they beat Iowa on Saturday, they ought to be in the championship bowl game. rich-c: sure, but the bowl games are a dime a dozen - what's the big deal? BobS: oh, thought lasts week put them in BobS: shows how close I am following right???? Meleagris: Yes they are, but whatever Bowl Alliance thingy they've worked out will make the Fiesta Bowl be the one that has #1 and #2 play off for the National Championship. Meleagris: How did you miss that Michigan lost, Bob? rich-c: where is Ohio State - I forget Meleagris: Columbus, the state capital. rich-c: should have realized, though not all state universities are in the capitals Meleagris: The OSU-Michigan game is probably the most famous rivalry in American college football. Notice that I qualified it. rich-c: qualification noted

Ronald: Hi Guy Bona Guy B.: No, what's the latest from there? rich-c: they now have Tiger Direct selling their computers - or had, the stock sold out in three days! rich-c: Microsoft is so worried they're offering 50% discount on Windows to dealers showing signs of defecting Guy B.: Wow, I guess then Microsoft should start worrying then. rich-c: I would say Bill Gates is not a happy camper this day Guy B.: I say. Right now I don't have any heat in my apartment. The furnace broke down early this morning. Pamela: I think you're projecting Guy - I was just thinking how chilly it was in here rich-c: if your weather is anything like ours, you're doing very well typing with your gloves on, Guy George: microsoft has nothing to worry about with linux and lindows Ronald: this is not good Guy rich-c: especially gloves as heavy as you'll be needing Judy: and they are not fixing it, Guy BobS: you got to be FREEZING Guy Guy B.: It's 66 degrees in my apartment right now and it's cold. Pamela: do you have a space heater? FredK: Holy Smoke! rich-c: wrong, George - MS is plenty worried and with good cause Pamela: (she says smacking her forehead) Guy B.: A repair guy has been here all day and I believe he has to get some parts for it. FredK: lol Judy: I think they need a better repair person rich-c: what kind of heat do you have, Guy? Coal? Oil? Gas? Guy B.: It all started with no hot water. The hot water is back, now it's the furnace. rich-c: how big is your building, Guy? Pamela: nice building you moved into there Guy BobS: got an electric heater Guy????? George: if you have linux or lindows you are better off with a adding machine Guy B.: It's a gas furnace. But, this place uses water to heat pipes under the floor.

BobS: nite Fred Ronald: salut Fred George: nit Freddy FredK: Nite All
FredK left chat session rich-c: just a little place then, and fairly modern, I'd guess Pamela: much smaller than ours Pamela: six stories, 41 apts. Guy B.: What a way to start the Thanksgiving weekend. Pamela: by dose id code George: i have a breadbox George: what happened? Judy: it doesn't seem like a good way to me, Guy Pamela: do you cook on gas or electric, Guy? rich-c: not sure if it's too bright with animals around, but candles are said to be fairly useful for spot heating Pamela: oh, the cats leave them alone Dad George: communications down? Pamela: you're getting thru George George: hiccup rich-c: Pam, your Ma wants words Pamela: oh oh - am I in trouble? Pamela: guess it can't be too bad, he didn't call me Pamela Eileen BobS: SO now we know ALL about ya Judy: that is usually a dead give away that you are in trouble isn't it? George: my doctor called ne in today BobS: sounds like yo got that a LOT when you were home,must have been a BAD kid Pamela: I saw something recently that said middle names were invented so you'd know when you were in trouble
rich-c changed username to Frances Pamela: Hi Mom Frances: Hi Pam. Pamela: am i in trouble? Frances: We talked about your oven on Sunday. Judy: that may be so, I have known to use that myself Pamela: Yes . . . Frances: Is the bottom element working? Pamela: Um . . . I think so Frances: Do you preheat with both of them? Pamela: I don't know - I just turn on the oven and when the light goes out, it's heated Ronald: How's Frances? Frances: Because perhaps the bottom element is not working and all the heat is coming from above Pamela: I've never checked Mom BobS: being detective Ron Meleagris: The Turkey hath returned...hello, everyone. BobS: hi TURKEY Pamela: would that cause my uneven cooking problems? BobS: all filled uyp for tonight????? Judy: hello, Frances, nice to hear from you BobS: fur sure !!!!!!! Frances: Frances is fine, thank you Ron. Meleagris: I'm hoping to be cooked quite evenly, thank you. Ronald: good Frances: I'm usually here reading over Richard's shoulder Pamela: I'll check on that and tell you next time Mom. Thanks for the tip Frances: Pam was complaining to me that her brownies were like a rock on top and uncooked on the bottom. Pamela: Maybe I'll get a stove younger than I am out of the deal if it isn't working Frances: She has an old stove like mine Pamela: that would be a nice change George: i have gas Meleagris: Gas or electric? If the latter, maybe an element is burned out. Frances: Or else a bill for a repair Pamela: Electric Rich Frances: Electric and, yes, that's what I just suggested Pamela: I never thought to check that - goes to show you where my head is Meleagris: Test it by cranking up to max heat and seeing if all the elements glow red or not. Frances: Anyway, Richard is standing behind me getting impatient so goodby again Meleagris: Or glow unevenly...we had an element do that once. BobS: bad bottom coil OR you got the rack in the wrong spot Pamela: think I can score a newer fridge while I'm at it? Pamela: Nite Mom - thanks George: i thought i was going to gas myself last night Judy: bye Frances Meleagris: Bye Frances.
Frances changed username to rich-c rich-c: daughter, dont get greedy Pamela: wow, I should have asked you guys earlier than this rich-c: after all your stove is much younger than ours Meleagris: The explosion would hurt more than just you, George, so I really don't think it's a good idea. Pamela: not that much younger Dad rich-c: now all we have to do is get Guy's heating working again Pamela: and my fridge is also older than I am Judy: I repeat he needs a new repair man Pamela: I'm not asking for much, just a fridge with a separate freezer compartment that I can actually use would be nice George: i have an old caloric stove and it kept hissing after i cleaned it\ Pamela: bake some brownies, Guy - that'll warm up the kitchen at least. And cook your turkey really slowly. Meleagris: If it's cold outside, you can use the poor university student method and hang stuff out the window in a plastic bag :-) Judy: it liked to be dirty thats all Pamela: yeah, but what do I do in July? Meleagris: Make jerky? Pamela: besides, I can't do that right now anyway - we can't find the key to the balcony door rich-c: gas stoves that hiss at you are to be trusted like snakes that hiss at you - rattlesnakes George: i thought i had a gas leak rich-c: sounds like a reasonable conclusion, George Meleagris: Gas leak, you should call the gas company ASAP! Guy B.: One problem Pam. My stove is all electric. rich-c: and possibly the fire department while you're at it George: it stopped after an hour Pamela: so? It does a fine job of heating, believe me - we tried it last year when our furnace was on the fritz. Ate really well, too. rich-c: George, one does NOT sit there listening to a gas leak for an hour George: i did George: i was scared Meleagris: Quite rightly! rich-c: no, you were incredibly lucky Pamela: George, keep an eye on your birds - if they keel over, you have a problem. There's a reason why they used to take canaries down into mine shafts. Guy B.: Not really. I baked cookies not too long ago and didn't feel any heat except when I opened the door. rich-c: oh, your stove must have been made in the 20th century, not like ours ;-) Pamela: You'd be amazed how much heat they leak Guy. I can bring the temp up a couple of degrees just by baking. George: think budgies are too hardy for that some birds are Judy: I was baking most of the day today and the house was nice and warm and smelled great too rich-c: we have a big wide old electric built in 1953 with regular and warming oven Pamela: okay, scoop time Dad - I do not want to inherit it, okay? rich-c: our furnace never comes on when the stove is in use rich-c: why? it still wroks just fine rich-c: they dont build them like that nowadays BobS: THANK GOODNESS Guy B.: My stove is brand new GE and it's very good one I might add. I've been using gas for years, but this is the first time using an electric stove. Pamela: sure, except for the oven that doesn't always come on after pre-heat, and the stove element that you had to replace, and the door hinge that went caput . . . rich-c: you have to handle them differently; their heating characteristics are different George: they had to fix my heater for carbonmonoxide rich-c: Frances always has to remember to adapt when we are in the trailer with the propane stove Pamela: I love cooking on our trailer stove - cooking with gas is awesome rich-c: hey, we replace tires on the car too, but it doesnt mean there's anything wrong with the car George: as long as it doesn't leal Pamela: yeah, but the car isn't fifty years old! George: leak rich-c: well, it's 30 Meleagris: Don't knock things that are 50 years old :-) Or 40, like me :-) rich-c: you mean we should try trading the stove in on a 1973 model? Pamela: Rich, Russell is older than you Guy B.: Or mid 40's. Like I'm approaching that age. Meleagris: I have a pristine 1975 Amana RadarRange, the first-generation microwave oven. All-aluminum and stainless-steel construction. Looks like a regular oven of the time. Guy B.: Bob, how's Ryan doing now? rich-c: hey, I saw a really nice big black 1959 Chrysler New Yorker in the mall parking lot today Meleagris: Probably weighs 75 lbs :-) Meleagris: But it cooks just fine, mechanical timer and all. Pamela: I've seen that car Dad - it's in really good condition rich-c: I was telling your mother we should make an offer, but she didnt like the tailfins Judy: today wasn't one of his best days, but most of the time he is doing great Pamela: where would you put it? Pamela: : ) George: oh, oh, i smell wood burning rich-c: have to see what he'd give for our '73 in trade ;-) Guy B.: That's good to hear Judy. How's Mandy doing? Pamela: but will it tow? Pamela: and is the van done yet? Judy: good, she can now take Ryan by herself rich-c: that was a question too - it doesnt have a hitch and trailer specials do Guy B.: Great. Has the divorce been finalized yet? George: i have a bike with two flat tires rich-c: and no, the van needs some fiddly bits - hope to get them this weekend Pamela: well there you go then Dad - gotta keep Behemoth Judy: no, still fighting over money and her stuff that he took Meleagris: Bleh. Judy: that will take a month or so yet rich-c: do not be generous on that one, Judy Pamela: double bleh Guy B.: Always that big part, the money. Pamela: so George, now it's sculpture? Judy: no, we won't she needs to get out of the hole he put her in George: huh? Pamela: the bike rich-c: also, Judy, people tend to avoid others they owe money to George: a paper weight Guy B.: He should get her out of that hole he put her in. Pamela: if it has two flat tires and won't go anywhere, it's sculpture rich-c: more in the doorstop league I'd have thought, George Judy: that would be good, stay away, he is trying to get in her head, by fighting the personal protection order George: right now its scrap rich-c: Guy, that jerk doesn't understand "should" Guy B.: At least mine should have turned more in my favor, but it wasn't. Meleagris: ??? Guy Pamela: the divorce Guy? Pamela: or the settlement? George: i'm left alone rich-c: just you and your turkey? Guy B.: Yes. Even though I paid mostly for the house I bought 9 years ago. She got the most when we sold it three years ago. Pamela: o sole mio . . . George: all 18 lbs. rich-c: thats OK George, you'll have as much company as you can cope with tomorrow Pamela: that's a big turkey George - how many people are you feeding? George: 3 Pamela: wow, I hope you like leftovers! rich-c: and himself for a week after, at least Meleagris: Forgive Dr. D.'s cluelessness, but are you divorced, Guy? If so, I never knew that. Guy B.: Been for 3 years. George: it was the smallest turkey the store had Meleagris: Sorry to hear, I never knew or picked up on it... Guy B.: Sorry Dr. D. Guess I didn't tell you that. Meleagris: Well, not trying to pry or anything, please forgive me, just trying to interpret what you were typing. Pamela: we'll have to send you turkey recipes George rich-c: well, they are never nice, but yours was I think less traumatic than most Guy B.: The best thing that Jeanene and I are still friends and we are still doing things together. Meleagris: I guess that's why I never picked up on anything, what you just said. rich-c: we have noticed and been very pleased to see it, Guy Guy B.: We did express that we both were at fault. But, at least we know what happened now. George: most of the turkeys were 25-35lbs rich-c: yes, they are breeding turkeys big these days Pamela: wow George - it sounds like most people are planning on feeding an army Meleagris: Sorry if I put my foot in it, Guy. I didn't want to be quite *that* much of a Turkey tonight... Pamela: gobble, gobble, gobble George: too big Judy: or that is all that was left, the smaller ones were already bought rich-c: our supermarket was selling a turkey breast today that was over a kilo - 2.2 lbs. Guy B.: Don't feel bad Dr. D. You didn't know at the time. Guy B.: At least I have a female here with me. That's Abby, my dog. George: i'll take the drunstick Meleagris: Will she get some turkey? Meleagris: Our dogs and cats always begged. Guy B.: She has turkey flavor dog food. George: farn dingers Meleagris: It was hard to keep them away from the bones. Pamela: and that will only leave about 17.5 pounds George George: i eat bones Pamela: you should have seen the commotion last Christmas in our kitchen Guy B.: I will most likely will be bringing leftovers home from my sister in-law tomorrow. Ronald: Somewhere in a parallel universe, there is a place where turkeys eat humans Pamela: fee, fi, fo fum George : ) Meleagris: Fee fi fo fat, I tawt I taw a putty tat! Ronald: On Thanksgiving day, that is Judy: I don't want to go there, Ron George: well roasted i hope Guy B.: I did saw a puddy tat. Pamela: well I must admit to being glad we're in this one then Ronald: well no, neither do I rich-c: that parallel universe doesnt have a Thanksgiving Day, Ron - it's Buddhist Meleagris: You could make a movie about such a universe. Guy B.: In fact, I'm taking care of one while Jeanene's down south. Ronald: well no, they sit around and complain about everything that's wrong Meleagris: Something like Frank Perdue's Jurassic Park... George: my finger hurts Guy B.: What did you do George? rich-c: been typing too hard, George Pamela: yeah, but then turkeys would have to be extinct, and that would just ruin Thanksgiving Meleagris: Reminds me of a joke I heard this weekend, George.
(Guy B. gives Pamela a can of Diet Coke.)
(Guy B. throws a hot potato at BobS.) Pamela: pop . . . hiss . . . ahhhhhh Guy B.: Bob gets the hot potato tonight. Meleagris: I could tell it... Judy: then you would wake him up, he fell asleep George: i broke the nail below the quick Pamela: tell, tell, tell . . . Meleagris: Okay:
(Guy B. kicks BobS) Judy: with the compute on his lap
(rich-c reboots Guy B.'s computer remotely.) Guy B.: That should do it. Meleagris: A brunette goes to the doctor. Meleagris: "Everything hurts!" she says. Judy: you didn't wake him Ronald: If it doesn't hurt, it doesn't work George: it was bleeding Meleagris: "When I touch my elbow, it hurts. When I touch my ankle, it hurts. When I touch my head, it hurts!" Guy B.: I'll get Garfield to boot him. Ronald: (senior's problem)
(Guy B. slaps BobS playfully) Meleagris: Doctor saysm "Say, you must really be a blonde, right?" Meleagris: Brunette says, "Yes, it's just Miss Clairol. How could you tell?" Guy B.: Any luck Judy? Meleagris: Doctor: "You have a broken finger." Meleagris: <finis> Judy: no he is gone Pamela: hee hee hee hee hee - groan Guy B.: Maybe I burned his fingers with that hot potato. Meleagris: The girls were ROTFL. Meleagris: Here's one that Elanor made up: rich-c: I thought blonde jokes were passe Meleagris: "If at first you don't succeed, then sky-diving's *NOT* for you!" Pamela: yeah, but some days are just like that, ya know? rich-c: that's been around the internet lately - has she been looking at the Langalist newsletter? Pamela: my favourites come from the "things that should be on bumper stickers and buttons" lists Meleagris: Not that I know of...it could have been independently evolved. Meleagris: I like twisted old saws like Elanor's. Pamela: things like "whatever look you were going for, you missed" rich-c: it was in one of the Langalist humour columns, maybe about six weeks ago - there wre several like it Meleagris: Sort of like the punch line to a Bullwinkle cartoon. George: all they have on TV is peepshows down here Guy B.: Well folks, I going to go here. All the USA folks have a Happy Thanksgiving. I know you Canadians had your Thanksgiving already. Good chance I'll be able to make it Saturday. See you then or next week. Meleagris: Bye Guy. Pamela: and "you - out of the gene pool!"
