The Not-So-Great Entertainer

After a week of disagreement on the TND mailing list, it was finally decided that this week's get together would be held at The Great Entertainer, a pool hall and video arcade downtown. Upon our arrival, Agro and I found Matt Brown kicking Bagus's butt in a game of pool. I played a game of Centipede in the arcade and then made my way over to the bar to watch the rest of the in-town Cyborganic posse drink themselves silly. Who needs video games when there is a bar? Leanne Kittas, Boggs on Spacebar, must have felt sorry for me that I couldn't drink because she gave me her old license. I guess that solves the problem of where to have TND next week... the underage contingent now has a fake ID!!

Most of the evening was spent hanging around the bar smoking cigarettes (and bumming them from Mark Luntzel!) T. Jay Fowler promised to teach me how to snowboard and Ben Wing and I discussed why geeks keep such strange hours. Makes me appreciate my cushy 10:00a-6:30p weekday job at Mills!

I think everyone is excited for the folks who are in New York, working on thegig, to return to the Bay Area this weekend. Only chatting with them on Spacebar and not face to face for two whole weeks is hard! We miss Sonic yelling, Panic pouting, and Caleb's wit in real life! Oh yeah... and Jonathan too ; ) Come home!

Even though the facility in which TND was held this week didn't prove to provide much entertainment in itself, we still managed to have a good ole drunken time.
