Hey Otis!! Hope you're wearing that handsome jacket of yours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Franco Twinkie:

You think this pool of industrial waste water is a good place to put down our beach towels?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Otis:

I look forward to April or May to pull it out of the closet. Alas, now it's a heavy coat or hoodie inside to keep warm.

Hey ya Franco!
Avatar 6:06pm shangri-lounge:

Hey Franco! This place is as good as any.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm Otis:

Otis, I just went out and netted some Mexican seafood. Tacos de pescado de la plancha for Chresti, and un burrito de tierra y mar for me. It's to warm here to cook.

Scott, we can still get you a good table if you grease the right palm.
Avatar 7:03pm Cliff just Cliff:

Not too bad, trying to piece my computer back together while figuring out what to have for supper
Avatar 7:04pm shangri-lounge:

What's up with your computer, Cliff? Sounds like a headache.

Avatar 7:06pm Cliff just Cliff:

Oh well shangri, I tried to replace the power supply but I think I shorted out the motherboard... maybe I just need to reset the bios. Funny you say headache, been having a lot of trouble concentrating bcuz of those lately! Urgh migraines :P
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Scott67:

G'day Rich!
Avatar 7:08pm shangri-lounge:

Hahah, MB. I had a good laugh over that. Got an ICP track coming up next for any jungalos and jungalettes out there. (JK)
Avatar 7:09pm shangri-lounge:

I hear ya, Cliff. I'm feelin' a little off today myself. An early bedtime seems in order.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09pm Otis:

So much pretty and exotic daydreams in song on this show/set Shangri-La!
  7:10pm Martinibomb:

I been out hauling pinball machines and taking old people to get covid shots all day - but I have a third machine in the house right now

We're deep in a collective dreamscape, Otis!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Pauly from Clifton:

MB, is that something you're volunteering to do? Giving rides? That's super cool.
  7:13pm Martinibomb:

Love is Blue is one of my all-time faves this is such a cool little song
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Rich in Washington:

It's Martinibomb's Home For Wayward Pinball Machines.
  7:14pm Martinibomb:

@Shangri yeah doing my part to help get us through this thing herding old people is like herding cats
Avatar 7:14pm Cliff just Cliff:

Sometimes I feel like the ball in the pinball machine... actually most times lately, heh
  7:14pm Martinibomb:

I do sort of have a home for wayward pinball machines going on.. that's kinda accurate Rich
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Otis:

Just don't confuse the machines from humans and take a machine in for a shot. You are doing the good MB.
Avatar 7:14pm shangri-lounge:

LOL I can believe that.
  7:15pm Martinibomb:

@Cliff totally!
  7:16pm Martinibomb:

actually, today was a bust vaccine wize. I was kinda pissed - they sent me a text this morning that everything was GO. And then they ran out of vaccine while I was rounding folks up so by the time I got there they had rescheduled their appointments for next week - BUT THEY FREAKIN EMAILED me so I didn't get the message until I was already there.
Avatar 7:18pm shangri-lounge:

I'm envisioning a movie where become mini versions of ourselves, and are now trapped inside a pinball game. (If it wasn't already done in the 80's.)
Avatar 7:19pm shangri-lounge:

Lordt. The rollout has been so disappointing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Pauly from Clifton:

MB, sorry that's very frustrating. They really should communicate on multiple platforms when something like that disrupts the process.
Avatar 7:23pm ironybread:

Today's show is Velvet All the Way Down
Avatar 7:24pm shangri-lounge:

Oops - I misspoke. We are listening to Santo & Johnny, ha!
  7:25pm Martinibomb:

^yup it's frustrating I just focus on what's in front of me and keep going
Avatar 7:25pm shangri-lounge:

Thanks Ironybread! Glad to have you here.
  7:26pm Martinibomb:

not like it's anyone's fault.. situation normal all fecked up is the normal state of the universe
Avatar 7:26pm Cliff just Cliff:

I know all about frustration.
Avatar 7:27pm shangri-lounge:

I get more frustrated by the higher-ups, and not those out there in the field.
  7:27pm Martinibomb:

I get to play pinball in my house during a pandemic and listen to WFMU/Sheena/Shangri-la! Life is just fine
Avatar 7:27pm shangri-lounge:

They're just doing what they gotta do with limited resources.
Avatar 7:28pm shangri-lounge:

And, yes. A great viewpoint, MB!
Avatar 7:28pm Cliff just Cliff:

To err is human, but to really screw things up requires management.
Avatar 7:28pm shangri-lounge:

Exactly, Cliff.
  7:28pm Martinibomb:

I've always thought most managers are just the people who couldn't do anything else. Heh
Avatar 7:30pm shangri-lounge:

Think that is sadly the case often times.
  7:30pm Martinibomb:

I'm OD tho.. so managers totally love me nawt!
Avatar 7:31pm shangri-lounge:

What is OD!?!
Avatar 7:32pm Cliff just Cliff:

Doctor of Osteopathy, I think
  7:32pm Martinibomb:

Oppositional defiant disorder
Avatar 7:32pm Cliff just Cliff:

Wait isn't that ODD? I'm OCD so alphabetically right next door
Avatar 7:33pm shangri-lounge:

Does that mean you are a contrarian, ha?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Franco Twinkie:

I was in bed. Did something happen?
Avatar 7:33pm shangri-lounge:

  7:33pm Martinibomb:

yeh it's short for ODD did I mention I'm also lazy :)
Avatar 7:33pm Cliff just Cliff:

Nah, nothing ever happens round here :P
Avatar 7:34pm shangri-lounge:

A more technical term for the free thinker, perhaps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Franco Twinkie:

Okay, Good to know. I'm going back to bed.
Avatar 7:37pm Domenic:

Just got up from a nap! LOL, crashed after wanting just a bit after work...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Scott67:

Cheers Pauly, can't join you at the moment. Gotta go clean my folks yard soon. But after definitely! ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  7:38pm Martinibomb:

Nothing free about my thinking, everyone gets an invoice!
Avatar 7:38pm Cliff just Cliff:

I don't have yesterdays or tomorrows. Just "now" or "not now"
Avatar 7:39pm Cliff just Cliff:

(I guess that means no presents for x-mas either, yuk yuk yuk)
Avatar 7:39pm shangri-lounge:

lol, MB.
Avatar 7:40pm shangri-lounge:

Hey Dom!
Avatar 7:40pm shangri-lounge:

Scott, make sure to do you stretches first if you'll be doing some heavy lifting!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Pauly from Clifton:

Scott, the suds will taste better afterward! A fitting reward! Stay hydrated, mate!
Avatar 7:42pm shangri-lounge:

Cliff, the days are one long blur as it stands. Rinse and repeat.
Avatar 7:42pm Cliff just Cliff:

And I'm coming out of hypnosis, remembering bits & pieces of what to do.
Avatar 7:45pm Cliff just Cliff:

...sounds way too ominous, heh
Avatar 7:45pm shangri-lounge:

At least my Tuesdays are pretty exciting! ;)
Avatar 7:45pm Cliff just Cliff:

Yay for Tuesdays! And Wedensdays! My weekend
Avatar 7:46pm shangri-lounge:

Hahah, yes it does. Coming out a cryogenic frozen state.
Avatar 7:46pm shangri-lounge:

Weekdays are sometimes the best days off, to be honest. You're off peak.
Avatar 7:47pm Cliff just Cliff:

Working afternoon/evenings too. You get a different perspective from all the 9-to-5'ers. (Can't do the graveyard shift tho, too many grumpyfaces)
