So, how does one tag a thread?
one clicks on "edit tags" on the right of the tag bar, and one adds them with commas (",") to separate them (otherwise one creates one huge MEGA TAG which doesn't really help anyone).

i confirm.

maybe there aren't any MRs in chicago. there are so many in texas, after all, that they might have upset the delicate balance of the universe, and the universe picked chicago to restore it by.

those texans, you just know they're plotting *something*...

Texans? Plotting something?? Er (as in Chicago-er), excuse me, my Queen, but just how many meet-ups have you had in Paris to date? I'm sure it's associated with a plot of some kind. Probably to take over the world (word?) as we know it (them).

there is no global quota for meetups, silly dog. (by the way : next paris meetup is planned for the end of january. mar(k)(c) your calendars !) however if there is *not* a quota for texans then someone has been sleeping on the job*, and since the texans have clearly exceeded this quota, perhaps chicago has to pay. i have no comment on the alleged parisian plot to take over the wor(l)d.




*no offense meant to our fine upstanding texan contingent. y'all know i loves ya. i just think it's sketchy there are so many of you, comparatively speaking.

heh. that reminds me of a joke made by a character in a book by Raymond Queneau (i can't remember which one now... i think it was in Le Chiendent). "pourquoi tous les garçons de café s'appellent-t-ils "Descartes" ?" or something. heheheh. (well... it's funnier in context).

now see, if Raymond Queneau's books were available in digital form, i could have done a quick search and quoted the the relevant text exactly.

I'd love to go there. A rivetting place, I'm sure. Jean-Paul Sartre is seated amongst the Chicagoers, revising his draft of Being and Nothingness. He says to the waitress, "I'd like a cup of coffee, please, with no cream." The waitress replies, "I'm sorry, sir, but we're out of cream. How about with no milk?"
