    Principality of Sealand looks like a hopping party scene.

    I really liked this episode even with the subtle advertising. Personally I don\’t mind ad overlays, or even scripted ads – I think people whine too much about it.

    Joanne you should replace the pencil with a flower. :)

    • Joanne says:

      or even an asparagus spear

      • Scott says:

        Stick of celery? Brings back memories of the TikiBar TV episode.

        • Joanne says:

          Celery? Crunch.
          It is past midday on the East coast so Bloody Mary\’s are authorized I believe.

          • Scott says:

            Unfortunately the office kitchen is not properly equipped for such enjoyments.

            Drink one for me if you manage to get your hands on one.

          • Kam says:

            Right, past midday, Bloody Mary\’s, no wonder there\’s no Friday ep yet! btw, I\’ll have mine with no salt thanx, bad for ya\’

          • Joanne says:

            While celery and tomatoes (that’s tomahtoes not tomaytoes) are delicious, not to mention Worcestershire sauce, I find vodka to be a rather peculiar taste at any time of the day, or night for that matter. Regardless, here’s to those folk out there who do have their hands on a BM. Cheers.

          • leron says:

            Most vodka tastes like industrial waste. The Russians, however, keep some good stuff for themselves, while laughing their frozen butts of at us for buying Stolichnaya. There was this little bar on Nevsky Prospekt….

          • B-man says:

            Damn, I missed the drinking thread. Had I known, I would have logged in from a nearby bar.

          • Scott says:

            If you were anything like the TikiBar TV guys you would have had a few drinks and logged in from the bar. In fact Kevin’s at the bar right now!

            BREAKING NEWS!

            Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off!

            …and I\’m not naming names (wink, wink, nod, nod, & wink some more)

          • C-C says:

            No go big guy :(

          • B-man says:

            I think Ellie may have something to do with this…just sayin\’ . CC it crashes my Safari browser but I can view it on Firefox. Can\’t embed (who came up with that word?) it, because it\’s disabled. Try Firefox if you have it. Just another Tequila Casual Sunday…haha

          • C-C says:

            Only use FF here! Gives me “The url contained a malformed video id.”

            Ellie always does have that wicked gleam in her eye like she’s up to something. She calls it her ‘lazy eye’.

          • Scott says:

            Gin nearly always fills the void of vodka – a good substitute.

            Even though I was sad that there was no Friday episode I suppose it was all made better by Joanne\’s comments. Thanks Joanne. :+/

  • Scott says:

    Speaking of picky… Did you recently get a new map? It seems way too creased. You should consider ironing it out or something.

    Or maybe that\’s where Yatta\’s mysterious bottle\’s contents ended up – on the map. Hmm…

  • C-C says:

    Hey! That\’s my boat there on Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg! Or \”The Lake\” as locals say.

    OMG!! IT IS 200 … 8!! Aaaarrrrggghhhh – all those checks I wrote this week.

    I\’ll be your friend Joanne; real or Internet! Good thing I caught the secret signal of shifting the pencil back from behind the right ear to the left, but I forget if that was for tea at 2pm without B-Man\’s asparagus or for asparagus at 2pm with tea and without B-Man.

  • B-man says:

    This little lady is from Krungthepmahanakorn Amornrattanakosin Mahintrayuthethaya Mahadilokpob Noparat Rajataniburirom Udomrajanivej Mahasatharn Amornpimarn Awatarnsatis Sakatadtiya Wisanukamprasit)Maybe Joanne can interview her one day…don’t worry she doesn’t bite…just swallows.

    • B-man says:

      Sorry I was in a rush this morning when I wrote the above. What I meant to say was: Perhaps Joanne could interview her one day…don\’t worry she won\’t bite…but might swallow you whole.

      Drew: We need an eraser so we can correct posted posts.

  • leron says:

    Big deal. Once a robot learns to ride a bike, it never forgets. Everybody knows that.

  • Kam says:

    Ellie, please call me on your KissPhone!

  • Mike_Dixon says:

    Hey you know I accidentally discovered the other day that the recharger chord to my KissPhone also works with my PS3! Uh, oops

    Welcome To The Late Night Laugh Zone

  • I stumbled on to your Tumblr bog from a Twitter post by Andrew. I am thinking of making my blog a Tumblr. Signed up for it months ago. thinking it may be the way to go. So dead simple.

  • C-C says:

    Hey! I have a great idea for a filler Casual Friday story:

    Bre Petis builds A KILLER paper airplane, with a cam on it. Jamie plots a plan to break in to the Empire State Building and get the plane to the top floor. Ellie slips into a black Lycra bodysuit and delivers the plane to the top of the building where Joanne arrives (in a white Lycra bodysuit) via parachute (with the image of a world map on it) to actually launch the plane and follow it on it’s journey. Yatta captures the whole thing on Steve Garfield’s “Sam Adams” Nokia while Chuck provides the commentary from his “man on the ground” point of view. Oh yeah, Drew. Hmmm … I got it! With everyone out of the office and his curiosity peaked by all our questions; Drew downs the contents of that brown mystery bottle from the Holiday episodes. He’s now rolling under the desk beating himself with Ellie’s boots yelling “It’s only water damnit! It’s only water! But why can’t I see? My eyes! Nooooooo!”

    Or something like that!

    Now back to regular scheduled programming.

    • B-man says:

      CC. that ep is already on YouTube, just do a search under \”RocketBoom Unplugged\”

      (I know Joanne doesn\’t like vodka, but 6 bottles of wine? Stay tuned, Casual Sunday will appear once the hangover(s) disappate. Now back to you CC.)

      • C-C says:

        Crap. I thought I was onto a good idea. Oh well, back to the creative process.

        re: the hangovers – imagine; Joanne probably never thought she would actually feel like shaving her tongue!

  • B-man says:

    …only those aboard the old RB spaceship know for sure, and they\’re not talkin.

  • d@ve says:

    hi Joanne, if possible, please place a pin in your map at about Latitude 49.30 and Longitude 117.17 – It is approximately where you would stab the map backhandedly with your pencil held high in your left hand, thanks lots
