Deep beneath the ocean's surface lies a city; lost, but not forgotten.

The city is surrounded by a large force field that blocks out the salty water allows the Atlanteans to breathe. The city consists of stone buildings of ancient architecture in various sizes; stone pillars line the sandy streets. In the center of Atlantis is a large plant; in this plant, several Atlantean scientists work to convert water into usable energy.

Close to the edge of the force field -in close proximity to the ocean waters- is a small, empty bar. Droney walks inside, the Rikers following close behind her with the bar's things. She cleans off the stone tables and the bar, making sure the chairs and barstools are in place. In one corner is a small bed for raptor, and in the other, a shoe rack for TL's boots. "Boys," Droney says, waving her hand at the Rikers, "Unload the drinks, and make sure you're here when TL arrives."

Droney steps outside and gazes through the force field at the ocean water. I wonder how this place got lost, anyway...

I'm reminded of the Futurama episode with the Lost City of Atlanta. I could also make some references to the underwater zone in WoW, but no one would get them.

Good thing we're not just in the water, or we'd have serious issues with the jukebox's electronics.

PS Thanks for the new bar.

I thought you had helped her Plaz..... *gives all credit back to Droney*

Okay, so my bass player walked out of practice last night. Just got up and walked out. In the middle of a song. Said, "my husband said it was enough". We had only been practicing for 50 minutes. We were in the middle of learning a song. She was in a phloxey mood - and txted several times during practice - and sat on the amp. Did I say she sat on the amp!!!! For the love of Pete you NEVER sit on an amp. I am now in a phloxey mood. And I typed PHLOXEY so if that's not how it's spelled then just take my mood and stick it where the water's thick and gooey.

Why is someone in a band when they don't want to be in a band?

Because they like the feeling they get on stage.


COFFFFFFFFFFFFFEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE pink2!!!! Hot. Very hot.


So, how's everyone else?

Way cool, Droney! I brought some kitties and the picture from the old bar.

Still busy, getting ready for Sister-in-Law, niece, great-niece and great-nephew to visit. I do love babies in the house! Hope they are okay with the kitties here.

Salads for supper, quick and easy. Might have chocolate later to make up for it. For now, I gotta follow Bill into avatar land and get a new one posted. Later.

OOOhhhhhh, did ya see that creature, the one with the orange tipped yellow tendrils and black eyes? I do like having a viewing window to the ocean.
