Cloudy's Cafe



Come in, be welcome, be comfortable, be yourself

Welcome to Cloudy's Cafe, a place to have a cup of coffee or a good
darjeeling and the finest in conversation and camaraderie.

The proprietor asks that you follow a few simple guidelines:

this is a real conversation zone, not a role-play zone



* no flaming; if you disagree with a viewpoint expressed by any patron, please do so in a civil manner

* any topic is fair game, but keep posts to the standards that Ziroc has set for the entire forum, please (ie: foul language is not appropriate and things should be suitable for all audiences)
-a side note from Cloudy: I see this as a place for those short
conversations about a new baby or the latest soccer fiasco, not for things that are big enough to warrant their own threads, by all means give those things the space they need and post separately!

* Please, no one word or smiley posts (Ziroc has declared them 'real spam' and the proprietor doesn't want the reputuation of "good spam" to suffer!)

* do feel free to be serious or silly and enjoy the company of others while you are here. By all means POST if you have something to say, even to start another topic , we can handle multiple chats, we're a CAFE!!! But be courteous and don't disrupt a conversation just to disrupt it.


Come on in! The bar is stocked with coffees, teas, juices and waters from around the world. And purple napkins, of course!

The lighting is low, the golden oak counters and tables glow with inviting warmth. Near the window, the lighting is brighter, as comfy, plush leather armchairs wait for those who'd like to read a book while relaxing to music or just lazily watch the world go by.

PLEASE NOTE



This is a modified reminder that I've posted before in reply to someone asking "can we spam the cafe". It still holds true, so I'm going to repeat it periodically for anyone who hasn't seen it.

Read the first post of the thread, it's NOT a spam zone. If you want to discuss you grades, a problem with a teacher,the weather, your neighbor's new car etc.....etc.. (real life conversations) this is the place. I don't mind a SMALL amount of spam but when the Cafe gets to be 8 pages in one day and it's all one liner pure spam, I have to ask people not to do it because most of the members who would come to talk about their day or things that they want advice or sympathy or cheers on, will not post in that atmosphere. I want you to be comfy here, but not at the expense of other members.

So the answer is NO, I don't want to see page after page of roleplay spam or one liner spamfests that could be done on msn or aim etc. because our goal is to TALK WITH one another , not fill up a cafe in five hours.

Winter has come to the frozen north! LOL Well, we have a dusting of snow but boy is it COLD! I think it's about 20 or so Farenheit right now and not a heck of a lot warmer in my office! [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Am a bit sad just now. One of our cats is very ill now and not likely to be with us a lot longer. He's been the sweetest of animals and it's so incredibly hard to see him dropping weight and being sick.

First none cloudy post!

Anyway, to add something to this post...

We've had all the crappy cold, snowy weather and it's just a bit nippy but sunny and clear at the moment. Let's hope it stays like that for football on Wednesday!

I'm sorry to hear about your cat Cloudy. I've never lost a pet that I remember (I've had three cats, a number of goldfish and a dog, all when I was under 6ish so I didn't understand what it meant).

I hope your cat pulls through


Just started my mocks at school. Done on today, Biology, which wasn't too bad. I was up at 1am revising just because I couldn't sleep. I still have 2 English, Chemistry, Physics, ICT, History and RE to go. Not too bad, although I was on my way to finish 30 minutes before the end (it was a 1 hour exam) so I took to writing a letter every 10 seconds. I think I managed a line or so in 10 minutes [img]graemlins/hehe.gif[/img]

Thanks Ivellis, but he's getting older and has been fighting cancer, so I'm not so sure we're going to have him much longer, that's the sad part. But we're taking care of him the best we can for now, while he's with us.

Are the 'mocks' actual exams or preparatory kinds of things? Good luck in any case!

They don't count for anything, but the questions are taken from past GCSE exam papers. But as my end of year report is wrote in February (I think) they can't put my final GCSE mark on (We don't get those back till August) so they put the mock mark on.

Still we have to do everything properly, as practice. We've been doing exams since Year 7 (now Year 11) so I think I have enough practice!

The only exam I am looking forward to is ICT, 3 hours and really, really easy. I got 88% last year on a hard exam paper, and that was after all the revision and going-into-topics-in-depth.

It is soooo cold out! -20C, -30 with the windchill. Not pleasant weather for walking to the bus stop, let me tell you. [img]tongue.gif[/img] This new house is nice and warm though. But it's too big!

Ivellis, thanks for the info, I'd never heard of mock exams before. Congrats on not taking exams, Madman!
