    Kurt! Sionnach! Great to see you! Finally the Aussies will know there's more fans in Victory Base than just Derisa and me! :)

    Blokes, meet Kurt and Sionnach. V-Basers, meet the blokes! Don't they have a nice FF Chapter icon? :D

    Bob MacKenzie comes over and sheepishly hands over a Herman's beer and a Grower's cider to the new arrivals.

    Bob: Sorry about that, eh? My brother was making me clear the tables, an' he said he'd watch the bar, but he's busy hitting on that girl with the lemon squashy thingy.

    Yay! More Canadians... It's great to see so many of you around... As for my edit, not happy, but those who saw it would have appreciated it... Just wish that particular Mod would PM me and tell me which of the TOS I actually breached...

    But enough from me in that sense...

    Grabs a Boags and sits around, doing nothing in particular

    *stumbles in*

    puts pinky finger in mouth, tests the atmosphere

    Hmm....a little colder...quite high up...and a strong smell of carrabou...an interesting situation I be in...all which could mean...

    Bloody hell! I must be in Canada!!! I was sure I was in Victoria. *shrugs*. I'll have your finest local beer, thanks!!! It feels good to sit on a good ole Canadian bench instead of being the bartender (in MY Victoria)!

    It's all about you TJ, isn't it? :p

    And plus, we won't do anything of that sort... it's hard enough getting other boards to talk to us ;)

    That's ridiculous! You guys are the most fun I've had on the boards in a while... of course I haven't really had any of you.

    Thanks for the drinks at the Big V (I find that name humourous for more reasons than I can go into just now...there's that ridiculous ToS after all...), I'd be happy to repay the favour.

    Map-wise, what is the largest population centre in the State of Victoria, AU.

    BTW, for those of you what don't visit the Fan Fiction forum, the acronym "AU" stands for Althernate Universe, which I find rather fitting, as you guys are the AU of Victoria. :)

    Doug: Hey lady, I got this great trick to get free beer, eh...

    Bob: Take off you hosehead: she saw the movie! 'Sides, they don't even sell beer in stubbies anymore.

    pining I miss stubbies. Nah, I gotta stay mostly sober just now, so I'd better stick to the Bud.

    So, fellow Victorians, why is American beer like sex in a canoe? :)

    First non-Canadian to get the right answer will get a postcard from all of us here!

    Answer: "Because it's close to water" Edit: please keep even the suggested swearing out of your posts.

    I win!!!

    As for the largest population centre, that'd be Melbourne, our capital and the home of such trendy places as that pick-up sticks arch near the arts centre and federation square (which looks like a rubix cube to a stoned person)...

    Let's not forget Jeff's Shed! Melbourne is undoubtedly an place of architectural brilliance, with amazing buildings such as these. Let's not forget the french fries that greet you on your way from the airport, also!

    Yeah, that giant wang-like thing (Jeff's Rod) is great too.... And those random guys made from brass who stand on the street corners and look like impressionist drawings of evil stick figures...

    Since FanForce is a "Family Friendly" enviroment...

    I'll assume that the establishment here serves non-alcoholic beverages for members that are underage.

    YJN, Lemon Squash, the very first two drinks ordered and served here, if you'll go back and read, is pretty much just fruity soda pop.

    You needn't have waited this long to express your concerns, you could have done so when you dropped by the GWN Bar & Grill to edit those posts, and I could have reassured you much earlier. ;)

    Bob MacKenzie scratches his head at YJN's order.

    Bob: Blue milk? Oh, you must mean that skim milk stuff that looks all watery, right? We don't have any of that, but I could give you homo milk and just put food dye in it...

    Bob goes to the fridge, takes a carton of milk to the back counter, and after a minute turns and hands YJN a tall cold glass of milk with a very definite blue tinge to it. Doug walks up to the bar, strapping a tool belt around his waist.

    Doug: Hey, Bob, watch the bar for a half-hour. I gotta go fix the door.

    Bob: What's wrong with it?

    Doug: I dunno, some hosehead smacked the top of the metal door jamb with something really big, and put a huge dent in it. I gotta go bang it back into shape so's we can get the door closed all the way. It's cold out there and all these Aussies will freeze, and then we'll get blamed, and Rani will fire us.

    Bob: Oh, that would really suck...here, I got an idea to keep the Aussies from leaving! Hey! Attention all Australians and folks from places warmer than Canada! Free drinks until my hoser brother fixes the door!

    EDIT: changed this post to those posts

    A guy in black.

    Large black hat. Black leather jacket. Black khakis. Black sweatshirt. Black socks. Black shoes.

    Everyone noticed him as he walked in.

    He walked up to the chalk line in front of the large conical fireplace.

    A drink had somehow appeared in his hand.

    With one swift gulp he downs the drink and shouts out, "To..."

    Oh wait.. this isn't Callahan's!

    Wrong bar.

    Sorry.

    The man in black saunters out. With a small gesture of his hand you forgot he was there.

    *looks nervously at ID card* Ermm... yeh... I was going to give it back to him...

    *quickly runs off*

    Damn! I knew I should have changed the picture... *puts JE's ID card in JE's wallet he swiped, walks up to him and gives it back*

    Look, ermm... there wasn't any money in there when I found it... I promise!

    No, I can vouch for that

    Flips through a wad of cash, then places it into his wallet

    Looks like drinks are on me (or JE)

    Sprays the bar with cash

    Hold on, are Aussie notes good in Canada?

    If it keeps you blokes coming back, we'll accept them, sure! :)

    Reads Woofer's post and bursts into laughter

    Oh, c'mon, Woofer, aren't you even going to finish your toast? Please? :)

    The local clientelle also live in a much different time zone than most of you, which at least explains why some of us don't visit here at the same time you guys do, and don't reply to your posts as quickly. :) Have patience, and give them a chance to realize there's actually activity happening around here, and they'll post. Kurt an Sionnach already did, and I'm sure Qui-Dawn and Alakin are around here somewhere...

    orders an extra-strong coffee and yawns

    Gotta start getting to bed earlier. Too many late nights lately. :)
