Dragonshadow: The first cafe was June 17th, 2001 I believe, or somewhere around there. [img]smile.gif[/img] Cloudy had her own ulterior motives for starting a spam zone...

One coffee coming up. [img]smile.gif[/img]

By the way Cloudy, why did you start Cloudy's cafe? It's a good idea, but what gave you the insparation for it?
And can I order a coffee please?
It all started two years ago, back in those days Cloudy was a raging alcoholic, who spent all her time in bars. Of course you can't go to bars when you're online, so that's how the whole idea came up.

Later when she kicked the habit, alcohol got banned from the cafe, and now she acts like this all never happened.

Then came Johnny to IW, and smuggled sixpacks into the Cafe on a regular basis, to add some flavour to the place again.

Anyway, that's my story, and i'm sticking to it.

Cheers for the coffee.
okay. Great story you guys. Maybe I'll be hanging around the cafe more, and try to follow the conversation (I've been suffering from being invisable latly, and I might go *pop* any minute now into thin air. Or a thick ear. Depends.
*drinks coffee and takes anti-madness pills*

*snicker* I knew I shouldn't leave you guys alone here! [img]graemlins/biglaugh.gif[/img]

I actually started the Cafe threads because we had a lot of people wanting to say hi to one another, ask about their day or see how a new baby/pet/car was doing but they'd do it in threads not related to the topic at all and it would cause the flow of debate/discussion to be messed up, sometimes drawing some heat from the people participating. We need a place to have short 'real life' conversations where nobody cared if they got 'interupted' by other short conversations. [img]smile.gif[/img]

For example, rather than start a whole thread to ask Harly (for instance) how her kitty is doing today, I'd post it here in the Cafe so it wouldn't interrupt other discussions but I could find out what I wanted to know. [img]smile.gif[/img]

It worked out beautifully.

One of our members at the time, Rudedawg, encouraged me to go ahead and create the Cafe after I mentioned that I'd thought about it. So here it is, over a year later, still going strong.

Hey! Since when did you have a monopoly on the couch? [img]tongue.gif[/img] *you* own me a home-baked chocolate cake and an apology.

Cloudy's reasons for starting the cafe are incomprehendible by mortal senses. I've always seen her as an evil overlord type figure myself, sitting at her desk and cackling wildly as she watches her spammish tendrils slowly spreading out over the world...

but then, I have an active imagination. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

For those of you counting the days till Summer, or Winter in Wellards case, we have 92F and 90% humidity at the moment. I'm just glad it is still cool, because like they say "it ain't the heat it's the humidity".
I really sympathize with you Kat and slicer. I used to have exam times back in the days of my youth.

Huh... I'll make you a cake, and you make me cookies, and we'll both die of horrible food.

*My* cooking has improved leaps and bounds. [img]smile.gif[/img] True, you need a hammer and chisel to eat most of the things I prepare... but it builds strong teeth, I say. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Hiya all! Exams are coming unfortunately but I believe I will survive for another year. What fears me is my German examinations. Although I am very good at writing I cannot speak German at all. I have to think for a while (make this WHILE) to say a simple sentence. Never mind! I have 3 months until then.
