The collective groan snaked through the crowd of people who were on the forum.

"I bet he's a fat guy," thought a woman from Ohio.



Greetings from the chilly upper midwest. My name's Tommie, and I've finally decided to jump into the Water Cooler and swim around a bit with the rest of the class.

Where's the cigar bar?

G'day, Tommie, and welcome. First macanudo's on the house!

Great opening lines. Hope to see you around the place a bit!

Hi, Tommie.

Welcome to AW.

There's no smoking allowed (you know how folks are these days), but someone is always buying a round of virtual drinks for everyone.

Hi vetinari and welcome to AW! How early do you have to get up?

The 1st alarm goes off at 3:45. It is then laughed at, and I roll over.

It's usually about 4 or so. Work begins around 5:15.

If I had it. I work in radio. I try to buy gas with free CDs...

Vet, I've corrected your punctuation to reflect how AW members really feel:

Great! Another new person!

Welcome and have fun!

Welcome, but make sure you take a shower before swimming in the water cooler.

No smoking, huh? Then that smell must be burning rejection slips and manuscripts or something...

Welcome, Vet. I don't do cigars, but I mainline chocolate and coffee. First candy bar is on me.

With your name I kind of had you pegged as a skinny guy who dresses in dark clothes, but maybe I read too much Terry Pratchett.

:welcome:

Hey Tommie, if you promise not to blow cigar smoke in my face, I promise to buy you a round of drinks. Unless you don't drink. Then, all promises are off. Life's tough like that, sorry.

From one newbie to another: welcome!

I used to have a mug that said, on the side facing the reader as opposed to the drinker, "If you won't smoke..."

Then, when the drinker tipped up the mug to drink, on the bottom it said, "I won't fart."

:D

Hi, Tommie. Welcome in - and it's okay. If you want a fag/cigar, we're allowed to smoke on the back doorstep.

I'm here less than a day, and already people are lining up stuff for a party.

I'm SO feeling the love. (wipes tear)
