It sounded much funnier at midnight

The following IM conversation took place between 11:30 p.m. and 11:59 p.m. Saturday between myself and Xavier Onassis from HSWG.

And yes, on second thought, it is quite lame.
XO: Are you coming to the blog meet on Tuesday?

EmawKC: Still unsure. I may have family coming into town.
EmawKC: Of course they are in-laws, so it might be good to "get out of the house for a while"

XO: LOL! We used to call that "Going to Casey's". Could take anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours. No questions asked.

EmawKC: :clap:
EmawKC: What time you gonna get there?

XO: Well, I'll keep an eye out for a chain smoking chimp.
XO: I work down town so I will probably be the first one there. 5ish.

EmawKC: I just want to make sure you have a chance to buy me that scotch

XO: Hey, bub! I think you're having a dyslexic moment!

EmawKC: Yeah, I guess I owe you a bourbon too.

XO: Actually, I'd be honored to buy you a drink. You were one of my very first commentors. Ever. And you can get off easy and buy me a coke. I don't drink and drive.

EmawKC: Me neither. I plan on taking Clay Chastain's new gondola home that night.

XO: ROFLMAO!!! Nothing like a drunkin gondola ride to cap off a blog meet!

EmawKC: What I don't get is how their going to dig a Venice-style canal from Union Station to Overland Park.

XO: LOL! What I don't get is where the demand originates for a light rail connection from the zoo to the airport! WTF???

EmawKC: Zebra's gotta fly, man. Zebra's gotta fly.

XO: Hello. My name is Klaus. I just flew in from Berlin. This is my first time in the United States. What is the quickest way to get to the Swope Park Zoo?
XO: Do you have any, how you say, gondolas?

EmawKC: "I got your gondolas right here!"


EmawKC: Overheard in Westport: "Dude, check out that chick's huge gondolas"


EmawKC: Now that I think about it, "gondola's" is a pretty funny word.

XO: Yeah, it is. Has a lot of possibilities. Sounds like post fodder.


XO: You got it dude!

  1. "Zebra's gotta fly, man. Zebra's gotta fly."

    F'ing priceless!

  2. You're right. It was much funnier at the time.

    I call shotgun on the gondola.


Your turn to riff...
