Re: Chat report (What's next for Z)
- I forgot to mention that we had chatters from the Netherlands and
Germany as well, at least while I was logged on. Don't want anyone
to feel left out! :-)
- Hello Jeffrey,
You must have got ahold of a pirated copy of "Lost In Translation".
I enjoyed my rental. None-the-less some folks don't go for that
sort of movie and that's the way it goes. I thought "Spellbound"
(about kids' spelling bees) from last year was a bore.
As for the high speed Shinkansen; hey! we need some right here in
North America, not just on our layouts. I'm tired of driving and
flying around. I'd like to get into some poker games with my fellow
passengers so that I can pay for the ride.
Best regards as always,
