Default PING PONG Thread????????????? 16th December 2005

Do you think it is now time to start an almost live chitchat thread?
ie "Jacqueline" is very chatty during her time at work.

Instead of doing this in the good morning thread we should start a daily chat thread for people who are actually online during the 48 hour day?

It could be interesting?

works for me! Slow chat is a good way to stay in touch all around the world

Although the goodmorning thread is already a sort of slow chat.

Good evening J and how is the coffee?
Has it brought your brain online so to speak?.

I think the good morning thread is just that which is, to let everyone know how your day went and how you plan to carry out the next days schedule??

PING PONG would be a semi online chat.
I saw this happening in Kuki's, "Talk about the WEIRD things people will do." thread today.

I just brewed a fresh pot of coffee, and my brain is sort off waking up. Give me another hour and I am all wide awake, sharp minded, and ready for the weekend.
For you the day is almost over, and your pillow is calling you
Which reminds me I have to call my cousin in Melbourne tomorrow morning, that is an 10 hrs difference.

In about an hour I will be nodding off and going to my happy place.
I need at least 2 coffee's in the morning to get going and I enjoy them immensely.

Talking of Melbourne, Australia.
My sister lives there in the suburb of "Mentone".

I received her christmas present too me, 2 days ago.
I couldn't resist the anticipation and opened it that day.
It was a framed photo of her and her daughter "Katherine" which was very nice as I have very few photo's around my flat.

I hope everyone that view's the ping pong thread jumps in where angels fear to tread? LMAO

You are a cheat for opening that present now!! Santa will come after you

My cousin and her parents live in Melton. I have been there in 1997 and loved it. Before that they lived in Eltham, which was also very nice. Australia is just good country to visit.

Come on Mates, join us in this transatlantic slowchat

And Lombard, if you already nodded off, sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite :o We watch over you

I think it's a good idea. But if you did live, then we wouldn't be able to read it when we get up!

You guy's crack me up.

another nice feature of the computer is the MSN chat, I just had my friend in Florida online, chat for half an hour, and I am updated and upgraded on all the news. Our countdown is 28 day before we fly and 35 days for the cruise.
I love the MSN.

Deep sigh ...........
I thought I had a reasonable quiet friday, but it seems Holland woke up finally, and decided to spam me by phone.
I need another coffee, I cannot handle this on a friday afternoon.

Countdown: 40 minutes before weekend


Good to see you smile T-bug.

The actual chat room is open and available 24 hrs a day. All you really have to do is post asking anyone around to meet there, and you can chat in real time.

Well, it has been awfully quiet in here over the weekend.
Lombard, the letters fell from your kiwi board?

So tell us, what is your decision on the jobpart? Have you counted how many cruises you can make at the new job?

T-Bug, you disappeared too?

J!
Well after 6 days of ummmimg and arrrging over the job situation I cannot separate the two positions.

I may have to, go to the bosses office and strategically place the oppositions offer on his desk while he is there and see what I can get out of him?

Can we have a coffee pic in this thread please?

Kuki
Some chats are far to fast, some are far to slow.
On my evenings from 7PM to 12midnight or 1AM, theres next to nothing being posted.
J is almost 12 hours behind me so it is great to see posting going on while I am browsing the internet in it's various forms.
I come back to the cruisemates page (in one of my tabs) occasionally during the evening and get a chance to write a message of some sort.

I tell you Kuki that I am addicted to this site and I really need to see a doctor???

Please keep contributing TBug! We need to have more than one ping pong table on the floor.
It is always good to chat with people over a number of hours rather than 1 hour or via email?

DING DONG!!!!!!

Lombard, I missed you somewhere yesterday but here is your coffee


Enjoy it, it is brewed with Internet love lol

Well, it is difficult to make choices about the job. Probably a good thing to talk to the boss to see what options he might have for you

So what did the boss say Liam? Inquiring minds want to know !
