Hi Meghan. Since the royal wedding the other day have people been spelling your name correctly more often than before?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/31/18 12:02pm Sem:

Holding my nose and diving deep. Hello, Ms. M, βrian.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/31/18 12:02pm KP:

Hello Meghan from somewhere near here
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:02pm βrian:

Royal wedding?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:02pm Meghan:

Ha! Sadly no.... Maybe the people from the UK.... but here in the states.... it's still without the H

Out there someplace, as usual...

Hello everyone! Happy Thursday to you all!

Hi Underwater folks!

Some are guided by vices.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:10pm Meghan:

yes, I may know a few who are....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:11pm βrian:

Can I have a hall pass, Meghan? I'm famished.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:11pm Meghan:

haha, yes, but be quick about it! no doddling
  Thu. 5/31/18 12:13pm elwyn:

hey everyone,

i have had a weird day. my boss told us he is changing jobs with only 2 weeks' notice - partly due to visiting his ill mother in India. for the first time, i got busted trying to bootleg a concert.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:16pm Meghan:

Hey Elwyn.... You should have said to the people who busted you that you are better than the people who hold up their phone and video the entire concert. At least you aren't blocking people's view!
  Thu. 5/31/18 12:21pm elwyn:

it was a very tame show. Cat Power at the Sydney Opera House. I was probably the most badly behaved person.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/31/18 12:22pm KP:

I just sent a comment to the wrong show. I'll be ok.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/31/18 12:23pm KP:

Anyway, glad to hear it's no better up there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:26pm Meghan:

Elwyn, tonight I have Psychedelic Furs and tomorrow night is the Slackers. I'm going to be concerted out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:26pm crateslinger:

This is amazing.
  Thu. 5/31/18 12:27pm elwyn:

I see Extreme with Mr Big on Sunday. I should go to Mazzy Star in a fortnight but it's on a school night. that's so stupid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:30pm Dave B:

howdy... I always thought it was spelled "dawdling"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:32pm Meghan:

I wasn't sure to be honest. As I was spelling it I was thinking doodling was too close
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/31/18 12:35pm northguineahills:

I can actually see the sun down here for maybe the third time in almost a month. But it's supposed to rain later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:35pm Dave B:

Ooooh - Harold Budd!

NICE

listening from an undisclosed location, i.e.- the bench

Just sold my paul mccarthy snow white action figure
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:37pm Meghan:

New box set of his here.... I only got to rip one album off of it so far...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:37pm Meghan:

Ha! Well I am glad it's nice enough for you to be on a bench Annie! I hope it's an outdoor bench!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:38pm Meghan:

KP, you had a snow white action figure of his? Did it look like carved wood?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:41pm Dave B:

PS - That radio was 25 bucks back in the day!

Fair contracts are communistic, aren't they.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:44pm Dave B:

OH GEEZ! That's right across from the office.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:47pm Dave B:

Meghan - if you or anyone else is coming in for the MoMA protest, lemme know and I'll meet ya. I work until 6
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:49pm Meghan:

I will be bartending tonight
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:52pm crateslinger:

What's the MoMA protest? I'm around there all day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:57pm crateslinger:

All a sudden I'm feeling hungry
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:58pm Meghan:

Party on the Pavement!
MoMA Local 2110 invites you to Party on the Pavement, a Party in the Garden pre-party rally for MoMA workers, friends, and family to support our ongoing efforts to negotiate a fair contract.
Where: Outside the Lauder Lobby, at 11 West 53rd Street
When: Thursday, May 31, 6–8 PM
We urge all members to attend this pre-party rally before enjoying St. Vincent’s performance at the Party in the Garden after-party. Members should feel free to dress up or dress down, and bring co-workers, friends, family, artists, and more: all are welcome. Pizza will be served!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 12:58pm βrian:

Meghan, how much of a pour do you give for wines?

I've noticed, with the general shrinkage in the restaurant business (small plates, mi culo!), that wine pours have shrunk to 4 ounces in some places.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:00pm Dave B:

2110 is only 2 shy...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:00pm Meghan:

It should always be a 6 oz pour. I hate when people stiff me on my pour
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:01pm crateslinger:

I wish I could afford the St Vincent performance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:03pm βrian:

I only know of one place with a 6-oz pour. I was pleasantly surprised. I've known the standard as 5-oz, since at least the 80s, but that's simple cuz it makes for 5 even glasses when you're splitting a bottle at table.

So, you *are* my bartender.
  Thu. 5/31/18 1:05pm elwyn:

the thing that I have noticed shrinking is the size of the Big Mac!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/31/18 1:12pm Sem:

@elwyn: really? The Big Mac getting un-bigly? How can you tell, are there metrics?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:13pm Dave B:

I think that's just because you are getting bigger Elwyn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:13pm Dave B:

pee ess - this set is groovy!
  Thu. 5/31/18 1:16pm elwyn:

maybe it's just Big Macs in Australia. McDonalds in Australia panicked when Super Size Me came out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:17pm Meghan:

Do did american ones too, since you can't super size anything anymore
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:18pm βrian:

Damn, the sun is barely over the yard arm, and I'm hankering for wine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:24pm Dave B:

OMAR!
  Thu. 5/31/18 1:27pm elwyn:

did you all have a good Memorial Day long weekend? in 2 weeks, I get a Queen's Birthday long weekend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/31/18 1:28pm Sem:

He's the Souleyman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:29pm Meghan:

I worked on projects the whole weekend. Not much relaxing. I could use another long weekend! Made this work week better by not being there one day!
  Thu. 5/31/18 1:30pm annie:

@ βrian: go ahead, i've started my elevensies, two fingers of gin and grapefruit juice, i just waved the juice over the glass, that was sufficient..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:31pm Meghan:

hahahaha nice one Annie!
  Thu. 5/31/18 1:32pm elwyn:

this guy's voice reminds me of Mark E Smith.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/31/18 1:34pm KP:

Meghan, it was a signed and numbered Snow White Disney Doll from the Armory show. I mentioned it to you at the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:37pm βrian:

Unfortunately, the only alcohol I have on hand at my desk is isopropyl. I guess I'll have to wait.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/31/18 1:39pm northguineahills:

I could use a drink I was sick yesterday and half of Tuesday, all I've eaten since then is four crackers and a handful of nuts (probably should eat first before drinking)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:40pm Meghan:

nothing fun about being sick.... hopefully you are on the mend!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/31/18 1:47pm northguineahills:

just fatigued, but otherwise fine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:48pm βrian:

Hopefully, it's not that giardiasis that's been going around FL.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:50pm Meghan:

my coworker came down with shingles, slept 18 hours for 2 days this weekend
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/31/18 1:51pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hiyo, Meghan and theme park dwellers. Ever watch that Bar Rescue TV show? Seems like one of their go-to fixes is to make sure the bartenders never overpour. That and clear the place out of cockroaches.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:52pm Dave B:

Shingles stink. I had them a few years back after wrenching
my back real good while boating. a nice band right along the belt line.

The only thing good about them was Vicodin
Avatar Thu. 5/31/18 1:53pm geezerette:

Love that "Baseline".
Meghan, good luck with protest! I'm a proud union member myself, solidarity.

NGH, glad storms were south of you. Feel better!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:53pm βrian:

There's a new shingles vaccine out, and it's recommended that everybody over age 50 should get it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:54pm Dave B:

Bar Rescue! The Pirate Bar was the best one...

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:57pm Meghan:

They did a bar rescue in my neighborhood. It didn't last. They went back to their old ways and now it's gone. So not really good at rescuing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/31/18 1:57pm KP:

Great show, Meghan. And now the sun might be trying to peek out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:58pm Dave B:

Jon Taffer is a boob.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/31/18 1:58pm Sem:

Thanks, Ms. M, been a wonderful time, enjoying the music out on the deck. Hot and sunny here on the shores of the Bay of Fundy. See you, and all, next time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/31/18 1:59pm northguineahills:

Thanks Meghan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/31/18 1:59pm βrian:

Bah!
