the original thread is here

the previous thread is here:

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.

Good Morning! Or afternoon or evening, as it were!
It's a nice sunny day here! Hope nobody is missing it...cuz I don't want to give it back! BWAHAHAHA!

The remodeling is still going on in my building. Now it's a steady 'tap, bang, tap' noise punctuated by jackhammer sounds and then blissful quiet for a while.

Wheeeee... I'm tired. I just got back from the fieldhouse(was lifting weights) about 30 min ago. Ech... my legs ache... Anyway, How's everyone in the cafe today? I'm doing pretty fine myself. I'm enjoying my summer a lot, more time to lift weights. More time to do lots of stuff. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to have second breakfast. [img]smile.gif[/img]

How do I go from human, to penguin, to broom boy, to cat? [img]tongue.gif[/img] And besides, I think I deserve second breakfast! Just look at the good job I've done sweeping the cafe!

Here you go: Muffins, donuts, scrambled eggs, pancakes and syrup...take your pick!

LOL, my boss is shouting about 'morons' she has to deal with on the phone....guess everyone gets their share of frustrating work around here!

I'll take the scrambled eggs and the pancakes with syrup! It's been awhile since I've had good home cooked breakfast!
