    Talking The Cure for Cabin Fever Cantina (aka: CfCfC)

    She polishes the last of the glasses, hung in neat little rows over the bar. Checks the bottles lined up behind her, hundreds of them in all shapes, sizes, and planet of origin. Makes sure the taps are fresh and ready to go, and that the blood warmer is set to body temperature (cuz those pesky Vamps hate cold blood).

    She looks at the clocks on the wall, set to every time zone (plus a few of the most well-traveled planets and alternate realities). Almost time to open.

    Plenty of places to sit. Plenty of food to share. She hopes that all writers of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Spec Fic (plus anyone else who happens to swing by from time to time) feels at home. Able to let their hair down, talk about their day, and just chill. Support each other.


    A bell dings. Opening Time!

    *

    So there ya have it, folks! YA has their Random Musings thread. TIO has the Landfill. They've got Sunshine Cafe's and Comedy Cabaret's, but now there's....um....this new little unnamed corner of the world.

    The "must pertain to the writing of SF/F" rule doesn't apply here. It's a place for folks to be folks. Chat about your WIP, your awful day at work, how much you want a light saber of your very own. I may occasionally merge OT threads here, but for the most part, it's a safe haven for Off Topic conversation.

    As for the name, I'm taking suggestions. And then there will be a poll. So far, we've got:

    QUARK'S BAR
    CALLAHAN'S CROSSTIME SALOON
    COWBOY FENG'S SPACE BAR & GRILL
    TEN-FORWARD
    MOS EISLEY CANTINA

    Adding:
    The Prancing Pony
    C.H.A.O.S. - Cantina for the Haven of Aliens and Other Species
    Chaos Alternate Parallel Future Spec World. CAPFSW
    The Black Hole
    The Restaurant at The End of [The Universe] [Cyberspace] [The Interwebs] [The Internets]
    Fred
    Ten-Backward
    Ten-Posterior
    Al Gore's House
    Al Gore's alternative prancing posterior at the end of the black hole
    Light Sabers & Magic Wands
    Universal Planet
    Planet Universal
    Far Far Away
    Once Upon A SFF
    42
    Portal 42, Destination Earth
    ETA: Estimated Time of Arrival
    Munden's Bar
    The Bar
    Watering Hole
    Millenium Falcon
    Centurion Hawk
    Morley's
    The Time Lords' Pub
    The Mended Drum
    Biers
    C.H.A.O.S. Tavern



    Mix and match 'em, or come up with something new. Let's give this new hangout a name!

    Good, I am sure she needs a nap. Thanks for working so hard on getting AW back up Mac and everyone else.
    Go on, give them a hug, Dragon's need love too.

    whooooot! Thank God for the internets gods getting us back up. What a bummer to have it up... up... and come crashing down.

    and don't forget what I said about the Royal thread, it is all shiney new.

    oh, and the castle has fallen down, so we could use some people to help put it back up

    I wouldn't be surprised if it confused people when you had your old user name too. Probably not so many. But I'm sure there were some.

    Auntie Whinney?
    No. That's not your Auntie. Your Auntie went to a nice, big farm out in the countryside where she could frolic in the long grass with all of the other glue-nags elderly horsies.

    Best! Actress! EVAR!

    How -does- one go about changing a forum handle anyway? That's the part that's still confusing me...

    But anyway. Hooray for four-day weekend!
    Nothing to see here...no, really. Not even in almost-invisible white text.

    You get a four-day weekend? I'm jealous. I only got three days (which is better than the regular two, I suppose).

    I think one talks to one of the local bosses. Admin-types, I mean. Not, you know, mafia bosses.

    My husband has a compressed workweek, so our weekend normally runs Fri-Sun. On the other hand, he leaves here at 3:15 in the afternoon and comes home roughly 12 hours later. It has its downsides.

    Yeah, but at least 'brat' was not a leap from 'child'


    No. That's not your Auntie. Your Auntie went to a nice, big farm out in the countryside where she could frolic in the long grass with all of the other glue-nags elderly horsies.

    Sure sure, and the animals on the side of the road are 'sleeping.'

    Also, watch out folks, but Mac is on a thread recreationism spree. She's due here in the next few hours if she doesn't repassout first.

    Maybe we'll get a name change out of it though. The sportsbar is getting a bit filthy with all the football fans passing through.

    Nonononononononono!

    How can we tease the Great Mistress with reminders of Post 17 if we're shut down and moved to a new thread?
