So once again, the intrepid New Yorkers ventured to the Russian Vodka Room, where much vodka, Estonian beer and caviar was consumed. Having outed ourselves mostly as smokers after the last get-together, we also worked mightily to shorten the lives of everyone in the joint. We actually overloaded the smoke filter.
Attending the little soiree were Ukulele Ike, Flora McFlimsey, Saxface, Cap’n Crude, CMKeller, manhattan, Alphagene, and special guest star TubaDiva.
CM was able to stay only for a short while, which was disappointing because he turned out to be such a nice guy. Nicer than any of us, for example. In any case, it was good to see him and we look forward to the day he re-gains daily T-1 access.
We spoke less about other posters than last time, and more about actual stuff. That said, many names came up. After the reaction last time, I hasten to add that this list is partial, and more matches whether someone was sober enough to write down a name than whether the person actually came up.
Finally, TubaDiva was a loyal staffer. We were unable to drag from her any dope about other mods, Cecil, people from the AOL days, or anything of the kind. But she still rocked (the stories we could tell), and we were proud to have her join us.
Houston posters, and how much fun their IRLs must be.

A bunch of stuff I can’t read because the writer was drunk and the reader is hung over.
Parting Thoughts from the New Yorkers. I’ll leave it to you to identify who said what.
Oh God, I was so blah blah blah
I love you, man
“I feel very sorry for everyone not here.”
Garlic and Vodka do mix. Who knew?

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday
I’m happy I didn’t end up dancing tonight.
It’s in my bladder. It’s in my bladder.
Thank you for sharing me.
Lord knows when other NYers will show up. If you bought stock in an aspirin company yesterday, we made you rich this morning.
There were no pictures.
Flora is actually a known personage, and a picture would ruin her anonymity.
Ike has been photographed
Cap’n is in the Federal Witness Protection Program
manhattan is butt-ugly
CMKeller moved faster than the speed of light and would not show up on film
SaxFace’s modeling contract prohibits the use of her image without substantial royalties.
Tuba has no excuse, but why bring a camera for one?
Alpha the scientist is developing germ warfare products for the Pentagon. He was advised not to be photographed.
