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.

A little tired (must be our horrid, rainy, windy weather for the last four days straight!) and a little sad. A good friend just called to put off a visit we planned this weekend because her husband's uncle committed suicide..

The visit we can do anytime, but I feel so bad for her husband and his dad who are pretty shaken by this.

Sorry to hear that, Cloudy. In the words of a great man, William Osler, suicide is a fatal complication of an emotional illness.

Sorry Cloudy!

Suicide has a way of making everyone feel inadequate. Listening is the best thing anyone can do for your friends - and you are the best!

Hey all! Sorry to post and run, but I had to go pick up my honey, he wasn't feeling well and needed to go home.

I'm going to talk to my friend again this week and we'll go visit after she and her husband get back from the funeral. It's such a tragedy! Her father in law is devestated. His own father committed suicide and he lost his only other brother last year to lung cancer

Thank you for the supportive msgs. It helps! [img]smile.gif[/img]

Dont know what to say to that cept, this to will pass. Dont mean to be cold. I was just thinking about my father and was already feeling down. My condolences to your friend Cloudster, you will have that visit and then some soon enough.
It's a grayish kind of day down here also, humid and hot as well, 92 with 95% humidity, the air is think and almost cutable. On another note we will be cutting my oldest daughters hair, it currently flows almost to her lower back and is very full, she takes about two hours to comb it, when it should only take 10 minutea, I know bwcause when she wants to do something boom its done. We ahve been warning her for over a year now and enough is enough, plus she always seems to get those rotten bugs in her hair, and then it is time to overhaul the house from stem to stern, which is far from easy considering the babies. She chews on her hair and does many other wonderful things with it like painting with it or dragging it through the food on the dinner table, etc....
Sorry
I'm ranting here, just feel blue and this far better then talking about my father.
