Capt. Jeff: Okay… I think I have us in a chat room. I still HATE this Skype 5 interface
Maria Johnson: what a goober. so this week, I watched the Avengers, loved it
Capt. Jeff: @Steve: Do you want to do some game show questions?
Steve Nelson: ours is not to reason why. ok, it is.
William Newton: I’m almost ready give me about 5-7 more mins.
Maria Johnson: there’s a lot about music…love it…something about beethoven and shakespeare…love Beethoven, think shakespeare’s a hack
Capt. Jeff: I need more time than that
Maria Johnson: and my favorite composer, vivaldi
Steve Nelson: I can do some Cinco de Mayo trivia – as long as we don’t talk about it beforehand.
Capt. Jeff: ok
Steve Nelson: easy stuff.
Capt. Jeff: What do you think about inviting Jimmy to be on?
Maria Johnson: may crowningings…that should elicit some memories from childhood…I wanna do that
Capt. Jeff: he’s online now
Steve Nelson: I don’t usually give it much thought.
Maria Johnson: I lik him
Maria Johnson: like…LIKE
Capt. Jeff: me too
Capt. Jeff: lik… ooh
Capt. Jeff: yuck
Maria Johnson: ew
Capt. Jeff: brb
William Newton: This chat appears to have become #scandalous in my absence.
Maria Johnson: <Like>
William Newton: Heh
Maria Johnson: I’m going to have that facebook thumbs up made into a stamp and put it on my students papers
Maria Johnson: i think, though, I may have to use it upside down
William Newton: I wish FB had a “Dislike” button.
William Newton: You could be all Caesar in the arena.
Maria Johnson: oooooh…..don’t pull off the toga look these days
Steve Nelson: et tu maria-te?
Maria Johnson: nice.
William Newton: I thought you guys had toga parties at the CNMC.
William Newton: This is very disappointing. Shattered illusions.
Steve Nelson: shhhhh….
Maria Johnson: no, we’re simple folks. we eat cheetohs
Steve Nelson: and oreos
Steve Nelson: and chips a’hoy
Maria Johnson: mmmmmm
Maria Johnson: [we do spike the punch, though]
Steve Nelson: and lots and lots of …. coffee
William Newton: I love Ian Maxfield’s podcast from last year when he was shocked by all the food you guys ate.
Steve Nelson: don’t be fooled. he packed it away just fine.
William Newton: Well he’s a tall guy as you guys mentioned afterwards; you had been expecting a smaller guy and were surprised when you picked him up, if I remember.
Maria Johnson: hilarious guy…I saw him with that tub of cheese puffs
William Newton: I love that he indulges my armchair interest in archeaology and paleontology when we correspond.
Steve Nelson: I thank him for introducing me to Boddington’s beer. Good stuff.
William Newton: A solid beverage.
Maria Johnson: yeah, not too many people today versed in the art of conversation on a multitude of topics
Steve Nelson: I are.
William Newton: Is you?
Steve Nelson: Want to know about scissortail flycatchers or the difference between ferric and ferous oxides?
Maria Johnson: sometimes I think it would fun to have bubbles over our heads in real life. or have a status bar above our heads to hashtag our conversations
Steve Nelson: or how the difference in ferrous and ferric oxides is exhibited in the lithology of fine grained sediments, aslo known as shales?
Maria Johnson: because, clearly, I’ve had too much caffeine this morning
William Newton: This reminds me of an episode of Arrested development where Lucille is angry b/c Lucille #2 has bought the company
Maria Johnson: it would replace the “I’m with stupid” t-shirts
Steve Nelson: Ok, I’m done being pedantic. I’ll resume my role as the dull one.
William Newton: She’s yelling and air-quoting while holding a martini and splashing everywhere and Jason Bateman says, “You know you need to stop quoting when you drink.”
Maria Johnson: well, that about wraps up Catholic Weekend…thanks for coming by, folks, the show never aired because it never got out of the chat
William Newton: Ha!
Steve Nelson: that would be funny – just have Jeff narrate the chat: And then Maria said,”…”
William Newton: I bet C-Span would air it.
Maria Johnson: I have half a mind to copy it and post it on my blog
Maria Johnson: this is your opportunity to say something about having only half a mind…GO!
William Newton: Are we allowed to talk about Joe Biden on SQPN?
Steve Nelson: <rim shot>
Maria Johnson: oh. my. does he have half a mind?
William Newton: That’s true, it might be out on loan.
Maria Johnson: that was…well…rhetorical
Steve Nelson: I think it’s just that the two sides of his brain excommunicate.
Maria Johnson: hahahaha. that’s…really funny
Capt. Jeff: …
William Newton: Sibelius is one of the speakers up the road for graduation this year. My undergrad alma mater comes through in the clutch for heresy yet again.
