Nayda: and sounds wierd

Luna, Hawaiian Beach Girl: Much excitement. A new video of Chan family.

Deacon Foxx + Angel: TYSM!

Grock: Wonderfully non-PC!

Grock: 2:30

Deacon Foxx + Angel: I want that LICENSE PLATE.

Mrs Weebles: Damn that car is beautiful

mystery guest: the hound

Grock: (crucifix)

Grock: Sun sets.

Grock: Vampires awaken…

Mrs Weebles: This is so cool: family memories that will last forever…

Deacon Foxx + Angel: Does the “Chan” actor croak of a heroin OD a few scenes into our film?

Luna, Hawaiian Beach Girl: Watching careful for cameo from Sabu.

Grock: I like the wind sounds.

Deacon Foxx + Angel: You should know, Mrs. weebles!

Geno Cuddy: Is any one going to explain this to me?! I was under the impression that this would be done over zoom, the term “personal video” points to this. I had no idea that what this really is is syncing up a youtube video with a text chat on another tab. My keyboard is busted so this is too cumbersome for me, consider actual personal video chat next time! Using that term implies using zoom or skype, not youtube plus text chat! Rephrase your calendar please!

Grock: Consideded!

Grock: TYSM!

Deacon Foxx + Angel: Oh, no, Geno!

Mrs Weebles: Geno: we never do Zoom. We don’t want to actually see each other…

Tom Holt:fp:

Nayda: lol

Deacon Foxx + Angel: Uh-oh. A parapet. And just one, not a whole pair.

Mrs Weebles: Yes, Tom

Deacon Foxx + Angel: They bought out Pier 1 Imports for THIS.

Dr. Zodiac and Apparition: Boo!

Grock: Sorry to disappoint.

Deacon Foxx + Angel: Uh-oh: a SCONCE. We’re in deep.

Mrs Weebles: I am LIVE, but thoughout tonite there will be several DEAD bodies so…

Grock: Yes!

Mrs Weebles: Mystery guest: where’ethe fun in that?

Deacon Foxx + Angel: We would expect nothing less of the redoubtable, whatever that means, Mrs. W!

Grock: 8:00

Deacon Foxx + Angel: Another sconce. We should have a lower-pitch tin can for sconces.

DanVenture: I half expect to find Ed Wood undead at the end of the hall.

mystery guest: mrs weebles – i will leave it on so you will not know who i am
