How about starting at the beginning by posting an introduction of you to us on the introduction page?

See yon thread called Introductions? Stick your head in there, do the roll call thing in shout out, and then give critique to get 'em, dig? The come back here for coffee, adult beverages, and other frolics, some adult, and some not so adult.

I would like a pastry which is not made from powder, gel and a 3D printer and a cup of real coffee. Thanks, I hope this is no problemo.

i leave you a buck.
Nice day out there, not too hot, not too cold.
i like your shirt, you look like a freak.
Watch out for the dog, you nearly killed him with your huge foot.

Just the coffee please...and hurry, it has begun to rain.

I like this from the menu.

"Well, one of our waitresses throws a fireball at you. Drink it if you can."

Well, after reading that menu. I know have a full stock of terrible things to do to my players next time they try to seduce a barmaid.

It has been almost 11 years since I first walked into The Coffee Shop, on June 21, 2006. I still love to write. Been published in a psychology magazine and a health. Now I express my writings by putting them into 2D RPGs.

That is useful. Now I know not to order anything. How about some live entertainment at least?

You ARE the live entertainment.

When I'm cleaning windows in winter
Numb stupid red fingers slopping cloth across glass
water running down my elbows oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh
At least it pays better than being a writer.

That it?

Didn't sound like George Formby, but yeah, you're hired.

Payment's in cookies. Sweep the stage before you lock up, ok?

Oh no, I'm way worse than George Formby. I can't put you through that again.
I may be penniless but I'm rich in integrity.
Hey, how about performance poetry - I suck at that too but maybe someone else around here could have a bash before choking on the batwing coffee
