    Figured that since we have all these writers and role-players in our little corner of the Universe, we needed a meeting place to hang out in and have fun with.

    Hence, Dex's Diner. I'm going to get it up as a permanent thread. The idea is simple..you walk in and sit down in a booth, go to the counter, hang out, pass out, or whatever else you feel like doing and interacting or not interacting (go on, be one of those weird people that sit in the corner booth and STARE at everyone with your hood pulled up and a cup of steaming whatever in a mug). So...have fun...and here goes.

    (Oh yeah, according to Dex, the Diner is open 36/9 (Galactic Hours/Coruscant Time Zone) So feel free to wander by and have a big glass of JavaJuice!)

    EDIT: Oh yeah, nothing has to be long and laborous, the idea is to be quick, simple and a place for us to hang out!

    *wanders in to scope out the new place, sees Master K and wanders in that direction* greetings! Good to see you guys finally have a place like our very own 24 hr. Starbucks.

    *wanders in with arms full of physics and calculus books, finds a booth in the back corner and drops books on the table with a loud *THUMP* Orders a huge cup of Jawa Juice and gets to work.*

    *Raises Glass* Welcome! "Dex" saw your Starbucks, and liked the idea. I visited it, and *sweeps arm around place* "borrowed" the idea. From a certain point of view![face_laugh] Buys Hawkie a drink.

    Sid strides in, looks about in disgust, a strained perhaps pained look on his face. He places a hand on the door frame then quickly pulls it back and looks at the layer of grime on his fingers. He attempts a weak smile.

    "Oh, my this is rather a... a... CHARM-ing place, isn't it?"

    ((which is Sid-ese for "What a dump!"))

    Frowning slightly he notices Dex absently pawing at his trousers, struggling to drag them up with his grimy claw, the long dirty and ragged nails scraping loudly across the rough and stained fabric futilely. Much like the stubborn Resistance the trousers defy decorum as well as any correctional efforts and continuing to succomb to gravity, remaining sadly drooped far below Dex's wide waistline they reveal a deep and dark crevice as he bends over to examine some insect fleeing across the tiles. Sid's frown deepens and he utters quietly...*

    "Simply Un-nat-ural"

    *Sid turns away and leaves quickly for more refined dining*

    *glances over at Sid as he enters and leaves in disgust* oh he'll be back...

    *raises glass of JawaJuice to Master--K* cheers! Every group should have a place for the denizens to come hang out and stretch their creative "legs"..also helps if food and drink is provided *winks*

    *looks over at Miana and the stack of books that weighs more than she does* if you need any help, don't hesitate to ask...doesn't mean I have the answer...just means I've been there before.

    *Raises glass to Hawkie in thanks*

    *Mumbles about why we can't do anything fun in physics, like measure the air speed velocity of a swallow carrying a coconut...*

    *sits next to Miana* in my college physics class..the professor would actually do demonstrations..one time he rode a skateboard across the front of the room and crashed into a wall...don't remember the lesson...but we all got a good laugh out of it

    Check the section on bringing a grill to cooking temp in 3 seconds using liquid oxygen.

    Physics CAN be fun! Or at least chemistry...

    If you want to see real fun with Physics, watch any episode of America's Funniest Home Video, none of those people understand Newtons law at ALL.

    *winks at Master--Kenobi* Nah, definitely an African swallow.

    *laughs at Hawkie's story* My professor seems crazy enough to do something like that. Granted, he made us figure out how many quarters it would take if you stacked them to reach the moon, so I wouldn't put anything past him. :p

    *looks at Sid, laughs* *Nudges Hawkie and Miana* See he DID come back in here.[face_laugh]

    Gee, the best my Human Psychology and Deviant Behaviors Prof did was demonstrate...um..."unusual" positions with his wife on his desk. [face_hypnotized] They did remain fully clothed, but afterwards did show a Porn Film as a "demonstration of unfettered love." (always loved that explaination). It was an interesting class! [face_laugh]

    *takes a long sip of drink, then starts chuckling to self*

    *wanders in with a math book, sits down at a table with a groan!*

    "I HATE math!!!" *grumbles as she stares at the linear math problems*

    *looks over at Pathfinder* at least it's linear...could be worse.

    *sips her JawaJuice and quietly wonders how many Jawas were killed to make it...or what is in it exactly...then decides she'd rather not know*

    No, no, I'm sitting at this lovely bistro across the street

    *waves*

    They even have tablecloths over here, and LIVE waitresses, human at that.

    *sips his Mandalorian wine and raises his glass in toast*

    *winces*

    Sorry, I ah, hate those, the fur gets caught in my teeth. They do make lovely elegant fur evening coats for Lady Cieone though, she has quite a collection, every color and pattern I believe.

    And I think she feeds the meat to her pets, but I could be wrong.

    *looks at Hawkie* "House elves you say. Hmm well we DO have the Force! AND Dex is a friend of mine...." Looks over at Dex, slightly waves hand "Kai really doesn't need to do your dishes....."[face_whistling]

    *Nods at Hawkie. Grabs Kai by arm and rescues her from life of drugery (or whatever was on those dishes in the sink!) [face_laugh]*

    *Drags her over to the table where everyone is working on homework. Looks around, grinning and eyes twinkling*

    *Whispers to everyone...looks over at Sid, gives a Thumbs up from across the way to him. Back down whispering to everyone again...Looks up at Sid again...and then*

    "All right everyone on the count of three.

    ONE!

    TWO!

    THREE!

    JEDI MOON!"

    *Everyone drops trousers and moons Sid!*:D
