The Wild Onion - Bemidji Style


This place has been way too quiet.
Do I need to be both bartender and party starter?
C'mon people... it's time to get off Facebook and celebrate.
Tonight I turn in my office keys and name badge
and won't look back for a second!!!

So raise a glass with me.... I'm ready to rejoice in my freedom!!!

Alrighty.... three people constitutes a party, so now it's official.

Megan said...

As the only Cafe member (ok, Zack exempted) who is actually drinking at the moment, I call shenanigans.

Because I'm a little tipsy and I just like to type the word shenanigans.

xoxoxo

Gig said...

YeeHaw!! The gang is all here!! Well,maybe almost the whole gang,lol!

Great to be here...feeling a little tipsy myself...the cough meds will do it everytime.

Party on.....

Megan said...

Still drinking. Even though the bar is closed....

Karen ^..^ said...

Yay, Bob!!!! Very cool. May you look ahead to crystal clear skies and a bright happy future. Dress warmly!

*raises glass before taking a nice long drink*

Leah said...

To Bob and Bemidji, and Bemidji Bob!

And Kylie, I just got a package of Tim Tams at my local supermarket--they are scrumptious.

Megan said...

Wow I was pretty drunk last night. :)

Joyful Jo said...

Leah
Wow you can get Tim Tams at your local supermarket. Well you have now tasted an aussie biscuit. Are they just the plain chocolate ones?

kylie said...

oh wow!
did i ever send any to you?
i think not

how much were they?

Leah said...

Ladies, they were delish. They were the chocolate-caramel ones. Alex just ate the last two.

Leah said...

Oh, you asked how much they were, not how were they...

I guess you know how they are!

They were a few dollars, I think. Maybe 2.99? Not a big package, though. I have to double check. This was the first time I'd ever seen them, and I was really excited.

bindhiya said...

Am here too... a bit late.. :)

kylie said...

well, i wanted to know how they were too!

amazingly the price is about the same as here. i got a pack for 1.85 this weekend but that was with $1 off

Suzanne said...

Okay...it's fuckin official...I'm in stitches. You're all so bad!!
And now what? I'm supposed to write!? Oh God, please don't make me write like this!! Oh God, please don't make me write like this...You're gonna kill me. You know that. I refuse... :)

Suzanne said...

Where the hell's the lazy ass bartender?

Suzanne said...

Severus...get your lazy ass staff over here...

Suzanne said...

I don't think we're hiring properly...

Leah said...

Oh! I have missed Severus.

SONNET XXXIX FOR KATIE

I went downtown, saw Katie in the nude
on Common Avenue, detracted soltitude
as it were, like a dream-state rosely hued,
like no one else could see her; DAMN! I phewed;

was reciprokelly then, thank heaven, viewed,
bestowed unique hard-on! but NOT eschewed,
contrair-ee-lee, she took a somewhat rude
'n readidy attude of Sex Prelude; it BREWED!

And for a start, i hiccuped "Hi!", imbued
with Moooood! She toodledooed: "How queued
your awe-full specie-ally-tee, Sir Lewd,
to prove (alas!), to have me finely screwed,

and hopef'lly afterwards beloved, wooed,
alive, huh? Don't you even DO it, Duu-uuude!"

My English Poetry Blog

N'est-que pas que la solitude elle-mème eveille quelque attente fébrile? Voici l'entrée, vide, discrètetement illuminée comme une musée nocturne – la terasse, avec ses torchères ondoyantes par un soir d'Avent étrangement doux – laissant le vestibule et les murmures de voix – la chambre immaculée immaculée et la musique de danse derrière le mur – et le bar à cocktails mondains – le bassin où le nageur s'entrâine, longeur après longeur, il en n'a jamais assez, il doit y mettre de sien – enfin, tournant vers le haut au coin du sombre couloir vient la fille noire et pâle, altière, déterminée et de style épuré, ainsi qu'un moderne avion de chasse suédois.

Exit time. Las chicas dejan el espejo de bar
dormindose en sus corazónes de alta traícion.
El Señor no levanta. Él pastorea a sus pies
los presuntos compradores. Y nos bendice.

Consider Sex and time, procreation, reincarnation. Trigonometry! I envisage the time axis as the repetitive tangens function. Do you see what I mean? What can be tentatively derived from this notion? Clue: orgasm AND birth pangs at tan 0.
