    yeah god there was so much shit going on

    I think the only time I stopped moving was to sleep

    although watching knob get serenaded by tube, staring deep into each other's eyes, is a memory I'll carry with me forever

    i've had tube's songs stuck in my head for a solid week now
    I KNOW

    just this morning I was in the shower going "never gonna be never gonna be a revolution hooneyyy"
    i sang the chorus to 'only stripping because you're a slut' to my girlfriend and she laughed for a good long while

    Ok, good. A couple of other points to keep in mind is that enthusiastic support of friends and family is great, but they're not going to provide the bulk of your business (if they do, then you're failing). So be careful not to get in over your head just because everyone you know is telling you they will patronize your business, or you may find they're the few people that are actually coming in regularly.

    Also, no matter how well everyone involved in starting the business get along with each other, document EVERYTHING and have everything contracted as explicitly as possible. This protects all parties and helps keep expectations clear so that misunderstandings are much less likely to lead to you eventually hating each other with a passion. A business venture like this could easily turn good friends into bitter enemies.

    Yeah. You've been in accounting school, Rachel just got her degree, lots of people on here have experience in this and we'll likely do a legal consult heading into it and ok gotta catch mah breath here

    I took a semester of a business course.

    That counts, right?

    Right?

    I had a very nice conversation with A Duck about the time that I got 7 girls' numbers with charm and impressing them by not writing down their orders at all.

    In other words, I'm a great server.

    That sucks. The idea of owning a dive shop sounds great to me, but at least locally it would be very difficult to break into the market when there are already two well established local chains. I mean, I think they're crap and their employees are usually clueless, but a lot of your business is going to come from new divers anyway (in the puget sound area that is) and they don't know wtf so they tend to assume the place they've heard of the most must be the best.

    Well if you wanted unlimited hang-out time, good coffee and free wifi we could hit Bauhaus on Pine and Melrose, but they don't have food. I don't have a laptop so I don't know what places do and don't have the wifi.

    I have to say I was flat-out intimidated by Knob. Like, I had no idea what to say to the guy that would actually interest him, so I mostly just let him go on and enjoyed the stories.

    Especially Bwandon, which I'd come to PAX again just to hear him retell.

    whaaaaaa

    dogg i am interested in anything!

    we had a pretty deep conversation about asparagus!

    I know, but sometimes I get a notion that I have to try to entertain someone according to their means and not mine and I get stuck where I think I can't say anything interesting. I had the same problem with a lot of the old timers, actually. I got more comfortable after a while, but in a lot of ways I was talking like I was still on the forum. I'd say something strange because I was trying to lead to something, but if that person didn't run with it there was nobody else to take the bait.

    Still, this was the first time I've let my internet and personal life overlap, and it wasn't all bad.

    EDIT - That and the big groups were a bit hectic.

    I'm scrounging for food so hard right now.

    I'm hungry as hell, but there's nothing substantial to eat.

    I've gotten very good at scrounging for food over the year and exceptionally better at it since starting the no wheat thing. Though I finally get to eat wheat tomorrow.

    Cap, a couple years back before they moved out here, Jordyn was posting about how much she needed to poop, and we're telling her to just go poop already, but she says that her big ol' cat is in her lap and she doesn't want to disturb it but she realllllly needs to poop.

    So I tell her-

    Poop in the cat
