Would there happen to be any absinth in this establishment?  Oh, and is smoking allowed?

One rots your brain and the other your lungs but it's your choice either way. smile.gif

Smoking is allowed but you'll obviously hear about it. *shrugs* Most are quite friendly here but the hamsters can get a bit larcenous. biggrin.gif

*Serves up small glass of green wormwood liquer with sugar cubes for dipping.*

"Well, there's something you don't see everyday, Chauncy," An old codger in the back remarks.

"What's that, Edgar?"

"A twenty-one Hamster salute!"

*OLd Codgers are showered with peanuts, from every corner of the room...*

Did we ever get the pinball machine back?
Ashbless
Nope, the pinball machine is still missing. Though apparently the hamsters have started frequenting the joint again.

Any of you lot seen DHG?

After much interigation of the shifty-eyed Russian (who, incidentally, is now wearing less than he started out with for some reason happy.gif), I've discovered the location of the pinball machine.

It was glued to the ceiling! *points to give greater effect*

And now, I return to the closet to continue my 'interrigation.'

We could play upside-down pinball! But for that we'd need anti-gravity suits... and I don't think that they've been invented yet...
voices_in_my_head
There's something I could work on...
JimiJimi
Why'd you need to do that when mind-altering drugs have already been invented?

In the good ol' days of the Cult I was always playing pinball on the ceiling.

I am here !

I have spent my easter on the pinball machine and am now fed up with it - you can have it back now.
JimiJimi
How come we didn't see you on the ceiling all Easter?

Ah well, that would explain why hamster droppings were falling from the sky throughout May.
Ashbless
I'm all for putting those foot holds on the ceiling by the pinball machine. You know, the one's the barmaids use for upside down shooters?, then people can play. Those with skirts may want to think about gravity first.

Welcome back DHG!
*ruffles Hamster fur and hands him a bowl of the deluxe nut assortment*

*heads to the hardware store for boot hooks or something to bodge them out of*
arachnidoc17
Well, we'd need a magnet so theball doesn't just fall to the plastic window thingy.
Quoth(The Raven)
*Arthur, Gwen, and Pascal carry in newer, and better pinball machine, which has the words, "Wack the Hamster" emblazoned on it, in fiery letters. Elves follow, and bolt the machine to the floor, then cement it place. A hamster proof lock and chains bind it to the wall.*

Arthur: Beautiful, isn't it? The pinball is actually painted to look like a little hamster, screaming in terror.
Gwen: the little shooting gallery with the little ducks you knock down with the ball is my favorite...
Pascal: and there's a little door, and a leather ball for the hamsters, so they can go inside and play hockey, when no one's playing pinball...
Arthur: or even while someone's playing pinball...

*Tobias opens a bloodshot Eye* May I please have an Icebag, for my head?
Ashbless
The hamster ball looks a bit more like it's laughing hysterically to me. huh.gif
I think a alternate set of silver balls with dragons on them would also be wildly popular. biggrin.gif

*sweeps up, refills drinks, and then ignores customers to play darts for a while*
JimiJimi
*Staggers in*

No, I'm not drunk this time.

It's just... well... I just completed 'Shenmue' for the third time, in three days. I think if I tried hard enough though, the next time I reckon I can do it it 1-2 days.

*Falls face first on floor*

*JimiJimi wakes up to the semi-disturbing site of himself on the ceiling*
*Is not reassured by the sight of manacles on the walls*
*eventually comes awake enough to realise he's been dumped into one of the old Teapot inn bedrooms above the bar*

*party sounds come from below and from somewhere the scent of amazing coffee*
Quoth(The Raven)
*Quoth walks in, puts Icebag on Tobias' head, and drapes blanket over his shoulders. Then walks over to pinball machine, and loads it with new pinballs. In addition to the Dancing hamster guy brown pinball, there is now a jade green Arthur pinball, a blue Tobias pinball, a sparkly rainbow Emma ball, a grey, tiger striped Gwen ball, a purple Pascal pinball, and a leaf green Guppy ball. Nodding in satisfaction, Quoth locks up the pinball machine, then walks over and scoops up the sleeping Tobias, who snorts a bit, but doesn't wake up*

Quoth: Okay, young man, you've had a busy day. Let's go find your wife and baby...
*Quoth and Tobias exit*

JimiJimi: Help!
Ashbless
Just out of curiosity, how many littles does the proud papa Tobias have?
I thought three: Pretzl, Quetzl and Moose.
Am I wrong?

*JimiJimi discovers he's actually laying comfy on a bed looking at a mirrored ceiling, that he's not hooked up to the manacles but instead has a death grip on a pillow and that he's free to get up*
*laughing sounds still eminate from the bar below and the smell of coffee from somewhere in the room*
*JimiJimi discovers coffee cup on the side table*
trunks_girl26
Actually, it's just one. The full name is Pretzel Quetzel Moose.

OK, this is getting pretty weird, would someone please verify where I actually am?

Oh, and while I'm at it, I've now bought Shenmue II and am playing it.
Moosh
I think you are somewhere in The Teapot Inn. I don't know how you got therer or how you get out though.

It's my birthday so in an unprecedented display of generousity I will buy everyone a drink
Ashbless
The Mata bar took over the site of the old Teapot Inn. There are rooms from the Inn upstairs that are known to staff.

When JimiJimi passed out I dumped his unconsious (sp?) self upstairs.
Being incredibly nice I also shared some of the good stuff - coffee wise.

So, when/if he's keen to wander back to the bar proper then all he need do is wander downstairs. tongue.gif

Thanks for the old thread about the Inn CM, I've been meaning to read it and hadn't gotten around to it yet. biggrin.gif Mr. Teapot ran a most excellent drinking establishment.


Happy Birthday CM!

Thank you m'dear

A coffee for me to recover from the excesses of last night if you please
JimiJimi
Indeed.

Any other interesting events occuring here in the future? That'd be an idea. Oh wait, stuff and things.

Indeed.

Also, I know this isn't the place to ask, but because I don't want to clog up the boards with another easily solvable puzzle, if anyone who knows anything about Actionscript can see anything wrong with this please let me know:

on (release) {
gotoAndPlay('scene=4,frame=1');
play();

}
Ashbless
*raises eyebrow*

What interesting things do you propose? Are we back to the licking conversation? laugh.gif
Ashbless
*listens to the crickets*

I apologize for the above post which was obviously out of line.

Please come back? unsure.gif

*takes advantage of the Bar being empty to clean it up and restock supplies*

*sets jukebox on random*
JimiJimi
Ooh, random.

What particular randomness be this?

Could it even be... Things and stuff?

Anyway, I propose that we race on space hoppers.
Moosh
We can do licking if you want Ash tongue.gif

So, a mere week or so from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in theatres, eh?

Hey, are you implying something? Because if you are...

*Shakes fist in disgust and spits at Ash*

Man, I reckon that the HHGTTG movie will suck compared to the TV and radio series, big time, but that's not gonna stop me from seeing it. Man, the amount of crazy movies that are coming out this year... There are three that I'm aware of but I've forgotten one and the only other one that comes to mind is Wallace and Gromit - The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Man, that's just gonna be crazy.

Hmm... Give me a surprise drink as per usual.

*Arthur alights on Bartop. He's dressed in a little dinner jacket, complete with bowtie*
Arthur: How about a nice Surprise Punch?
Jimi Jimi (Eyeing Arthur suspiciously): This wouldn't be a trick, would it? I ask for a drink, and you punch me, instead?
Arthur:Nope. You ask for a drink, I give you a drink.
Jimi Jimi: I never heard of a Surprise Punch... But I'll try anything, once... Okay, then, give me a surprise punch... no tricks, now!
*Arthur makes a show of slicing, dicing, and assembling ingredients in a blender, turns the blender on for five seconds, then pours a third of the contents into a glass*
*Jimi Jimi picks up the glass, which now contains a green liquid*
Jimi Jimi:Why is it green?
Arthur:That's the surprise
Jimi Jimi: Oh. *Downs half the glass* Mmm. Tasty.
*remainder of drink rises up out of the glass, forms a fist, and flattens Jimi Jimi with one blow...*
Arthur:Surprise!
Jimi Jimi(levering himself up on one elbow):Bartender! Set me up again!

Arthur: Next!

Or, could he have wanted a drink served in a hat? unsure.gif I never get that right.

*Opens eyes and notices hat on head*

*Points at hat, acknowledging it*

Let's see how much of that song I remember...

I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together...
See how they fly like Lucy in the Sky see how they run...
I'm flying...


Nope, that's all I remember and I'm fairly sure I got that wrong.

Cool song anyway.

And back to the current situation in the Matabar:

*Jimi wakes up for a third time, and picks up one of several top hats hanging from his arms. He them rips off a leg from an unsuspecting customer, before dancing with the hat and the 'cane'.*

*To everyone's delight he then finishes his song and dance - before going into another song and dance.*

I'm Jake the Peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
With my extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
Wherever I go through rain and snow
The people always let me know
There's Jake the peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
With his extra HATS!


*Jimi then goes around the bar hitting people with the leg shouting the word 'HATS', before waking up*

Oh, I'm still a hat stand. That must have been some sort of dream. Although I do have someone's leg in my hand.

Meh, I'm sure they'll come and get it eventually.
