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.

Been a long time, so I couldn't resist a first post in a Cloudy's. [img]smile.gif[/img]

How's everyone?

I've been doing fine, mostly hiding down in the RP section when I came over to IW, otherwise occupied with my before last year at uni, which is going along nicely. [img]smile.gif[/img]

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.

Seems to me that you're slowing down Cloudy. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Two posts sneaking in before the rules post.

Thanks, Cloudy [img]smile.gif[/img] Gotta have the guilt-free ones now... made the decision last week to join a buddy of mine at Weight Watchers, and I'm not investing the points there... yet...

My buddy has lost 95 pounds over the last 14 months... enough to make me accept that it can work. So far, so good for me... but tomorrow's my first official weigh-in. Looks like I'll be down at least 5 this week.

*edit* Officially down 6-1/4... a good start, to be sure

Now for some gaming to relax my brain...

Well done Bungleau! not a bad start.

this year is beginning to get depressing.. having to study abotu 50 hours a month until October, and winter is on its way.

PLus, a good friend of mine just had his wife run off with another guy, so having to help him through it. Not fun, poor bugger.

Thanks, CO [img]smile.gif[/img] Still going well this week (so far) with a couple more gone, and I finally tracked down software that runs on my Treo that automates all the point tracking for me

I'm moving into geek heaven... [img]graemlins/hehe.gif[/img]

Bummer on the study levels... hopefully it's worth it in the end. And sympathies to your friend... having someone do that to you is not good. Hopefully there are no kids involved, because that gets even worse.

Heya all [img]graemlins/happywave.gif[/img]

Sorry to hear about your friend, Cap'n. I think i know how he feels. The same thing happened to me on friday. Not that she was my wife though. And not that i'm %100 sure that it was for someone else. Though it's still gonna ache. She's a physio. No more free massages for me.
