** Walks behind the bar, rolls up the sleeves and gets to work **

All of this talk, is making me thirsty.

** Pours a Jack & Coke in honor of Digsy and hangs a Cow Bell by the register. **

The cowbell is for getting the waitstaff's attention. When you need more attention, just give it more cowbell

Hey Nurse, do you think BOC likes or hates the cowbell? Can you imagine you're whole career boiled down to "More Cowbell" How depressingly funny

** Puts Danish song that Merc sent me on the jukebox **

I like it. It reminds me of something, both vocally and musically. My problem is that my ears want to translate the Danish into an approximation of English, but I don't know a lick of Danish! I'll listen to it some more tonight, but it's losing to Snow Patrol's Run at the moment.

I can't wait until my iPod arrives so that I can quickly store new songs and bring them to work. Right now, I have to burn a disc to do that.

** Run comes on the jukebox and I continue to sweep behind the bar as the song slowly builds **

Hey, where did all the dudes go? Did they get girlfriends and only talk off-line now? If so. Lame! If we don't have more guys here, we'll just be Pleba-lite. Don't know why guys wouldn't want to be surrounded by these lovelies. At least Enajh still comes by (I have the hardest time remembering how to spell his name. Change it! ) I hope that manwiththespinninhead comes in to help serve drinks. We could use the help sometimes.

** Washes some glasses and peruses the receipts from last night **

No where in any of our arguments has anyone considered what the band wants.

Can you imagine that you pick a date for an evening out with dinner and a movie at a restaurant that you've never been to, and a movie that you've heard is wonderful. You've got the reservations, you've got the tickets, you're dressed up and your Keen to surprise your lover with all of this. You pick your lover up and you arrive at the restaurant, and your lover says "I love this place, I've been here every night for the last two weeks! You should try the steak!" The dinner is delicious and you drive to the theatre and as you get close, your lover says "I loved this movie! Oh, I can't wait for you to see it too!" The movie, of course is wonderful, but all of your planning was unnecessary, all of your attempts at surprising your lover were a waste of time. You can't help feeling a little betrayed, because your lover knew that you wanted to see this film and eat at that restaurant, but chose to not wait until you were ready to eat there and see that.

We ripped the album out of U2 hands, to get it into our hungry hands, not really caring what the band wants to do with it's own presents. Would you have downloaded the album if it had hit the internet back in July? Would you have justified it then? The principle that your are violating is the same. And I think the band is at best resigned to it being out there, but I don't think that they are happy.

Look, this is in many ways a minor point, and I wouldn't be getting this up-in-arms about it if people weren't pushing so hard for converts to their side. I'd say it's your choice, but once you start trying to sway people, then be prepared for the counter-arguments and this is one of mine.

Stars. I just disagree with you, but I'm still tickled by you. (hates confrontation)

I feel your pain if I don't receive here today at work, I won't get it until Friday My trip is ill-timed for receiving U2 stuff.

** Squeezes Merc tightly **

Don't worry about a thing, every little thing is going to be alright...

Well, since my plans for the evening went down the drain - thanks to some in Germany! - I'll translate the song for you now...

Definetly a T-Rex moment. I'm thinking it sounds a bit like INXS's 'Mystify"....

The most mature response I can muster to your post right now because I am still overjoyed by what I'm hearing right now:

Hey Tim:

Stars didn't really have to try to hard to persuade me, I was well on the way to the dark side all by myself, so don't be too hard on her.



Hey Merc, we got Vertigo CDs but NO DVD's for at least another week.... so I know exactly how you feel (well, sort of ...)
