Hello Everyone,

Treeman here! Was just thinking of the wonderful night I spent in NOLA, having drinks with some wonderful people.
How are things going with you all? I've been out of the game for a LONG time, I hope all is well with everyone I met that night. So sound off, and let me know. abs-cheers.gif

Best Wishs,
Matt

I found it for you.

I don't remember too much about it.

I wasn't counting drinks that night but Ted told me recently he poured me 11 large ones.

Good to see you among the living.

Kallisti retired. Green Imp is still active here. I saw Ted in September. Don't know about any of the others.

I think I had 16 before my glass was busted wacko.gif . Saw Ted on a program about Absinthe being all "scientific", well he was always the Mad Scientist anyway. How fortunate for us right!?

That was a fun night, it's been quite a ride since then.

Ha ha! I wasn't going to mention this, but I saw Ted recently and we talked about that party among other things, and he also told me "Artemis drank 11 glasses of absinthe that night"!

He also likes to say I got lost leaving the party because I didn't take the ride he offered, which is true, but there were too many people in his car already. I assured him I knew the way and then (he says) I wandered off in the wrong direction (no doubt also true). My feet later went out from under me and I wound up on my ass, then some people approached out of the shadows and I thought, well, getting robbed will top off the evening, but they turned to be Iowegians on holiday or something and they asked if I needed assistance, which was nice of them.
Tibro
Iowegians. I'm familiar with a few. Fine corn-fed folk. Happy to hear they were of assistance.

And a pleasure to make your acquaintance Matt.
Artemis
Some people in Nebraska say Iowa stands for Idiots Out Wandering About.

I heard a joke there about a policeman watching people cross a bridge from Iowa into Nebraska. He saw a car with its windshield wipers going full speed on a bright sunny day and figured he had some drunk Iowegian easy meat, so he pulled the man over. The guy turned out to be cold sober. Said the policeman: "Well, you're going to have to turn those wipers off, or get Iowa license plates".

Another one: What's the difference between an Iowa debutante and a heifer?


Fifty pounds and two teats.

But then, people in southern Michigan call Indiana or Illinois tourists FIP(s).

I like joke #1!

I think i vaguely remember riding with Ted and getting dropped out front of St.Vincent's. Which reminds me, I think I had a ghost is my room there that Sat. morning before I ventured into The Quarter. I had dumped out my change onto my suitcase Fri night when I arrived at St. Vincents. Saturday I got up and showered and got dressed, and had put all the silver coins in my pocket leaving 3 pennies scattered on the suitcase. Went to breakfast 50' from my room eating by a window that looked right at my room. After breakfast I went back to my room to get a map from the suitcase, and BAM! 3 pennies heads up and touching sides in the middle of my suitcase like a clover leaf. I saw nobody go into my room during my breakfast. I heard a bunch of kids died in that place when it was an orphanage. Looked to me like something a small kid would do to mess with you evill.gif

I got the room that wasn't haunted, I even dared the ghosts to stop by.

Iovia's pig country, that should probably be a sow.

Which one, you may ask.
Artemis
Good story, Matt. Better a playful ghost than an angry one.

I stayed at some place in the quarter that had a courtyard; I don't remember the name. I told the guy who helped me into my room (they used to call them bellboys) that I was expecting company (Morrigan and Kallisti, but I didn't go into detail). This because someone was going to have to unlock the gate from the street for them.

"Well, if he's an especially pretty man, you may have to share him with the bellboy", said he.

And yes, there are indeed a lot of pigs in Iowa, but that would complicate the mammulary mathematics.
