TWFirst, Vol. II

Thu Nov 30, 2000 4:28 am

When we last left the original "TWFirst" thread, there were 305 posts. It became clear it was becoming too cumbersome to load for most folks. Here's a summary of that 3-month-long conversation...

- SKYTEAM started it all, explaining that he had been banned for awhile due to a fight with one of the resident homophobes.

- CstarU conspired to keep the thread on top, much to the chagrin of yours truly. After Cstar pretended to be Lucifer 666, the "Heaven's Gate" cult leader, and OJ Simpson (among others), I acquiesced. Enjoying his wit and banter, I begrudgingly assumed the role of thread host.

- CTBarnes provided insight, spiritual guidance, and revealed his love for intoxicating beverages and naked natives pictures from the National Geographic.

- Lindy shared stories from his relentless nationwide pursuit of cheap women, booze, and blow-up dolls.

- Trvlr & DeltaRNOmd80 talked about their efforts to watch boobie channels on cable.

- Polaris shared his Canadian joy and love with us all.

- NWA Man and I talked about a great Vikings game, and spotting at MSP.

- Fanoftristars joined us, talking about his life in UT.

- LH423 helped contibute to the healthy doses of sexual innuendo sprinkled throughout the thread, and shared his thoughts on November.

- SKYTEAM popped in once in a while to say "hey."

- Our old friend N863DA stopped by of course, and he and I talked about trying to meet up in FL at some point.

- Surf, 777YYC, TravelinMan and Dk all made humorous contributions.

- Meister808, TurboTristar, LFO and 747-600X jumped on the bandwagon.

- Tbar220 promised to print the whole damn thing out and read it one day.

- TWAneedsNOhelp said hi at some point (I think).

- Trvlr just HAD to put the thread over the 300 post mark.

- AND OF COURSE, Brissie Lions had to pop in and tell us how wonderful Australia is (can you say penU.S. envy??? )


AND NOW FOR THE CONTINUING SAGA OF...

Here are the last five posts from Vol. I (for those who missed where the conversation left off):

Username: CstarU

Aaron,

You cheated, you posted twice in a row...I want a manual recount!!! 

Might as well post here, haven't done it in awhile (post that is).

Juice

P.S. Aloha TW, Waddascoop brah? Maui was ono! Mahalo. Sorry, can't still get rid of my Pidgen Hawaiian.  


Username: TWFirst

CSTAR!!!! You're back!!! I thought maybe you had found a little tiki statue on the beach in Hawaii and it brought you bad luck and then a giant tarantula crawled on your chest while you were sleeping and then Greg wiped out while surfing and then Vincent Price kidnapped you and tied you up in a cave and Alice and Mike and Carol were looking for you... or something like that. Anyways, glad you're back. Would love to hear some stories.


OK, where do I start...

Brissie: Of course. I should have known Australia would have nice weather in some region during winter. How could I have even thought there would be something imperfect about your storied continent-nation. 

BTW, the contiguous 48 states are slightly larger than Australia. When you add Alaska, we're much larger (not that I'm a size queen or anything).


Ben: Howdy dude. Did you make sure your chad was punched all the way through??  We were in FLL the weekend before Thanksgiving, and will be returning Dec. 21 through New Years. Guess I'll miss you. However, I already have trips booked in Jan (the weekend of the 18th, I think), Feb (weekend of the 22nd) and March (weekend of the 22nd). Eventually, I'm sure we'll cross paths. Christmas in the UK sounds fun. We're excited about spending our first Xmas in FL. I assume you're flying DL to the UK.

It's 12:17 a.m. and I'm up because I can't sleep, although I need to get up early. My allergies are bothering me a bit too. I got online to check and see if my Elite1 status with TWA has been processed yet (I'm such a geek). My flight last Sat. put me over the top, so I'm excited to be an Elite1 (equivalent to gold level in other programs). I'm also excited that TW is supposedly going to be announcing a bunch of great news either today or tomorrow concerning new codeshare agreements and widebody orders.

OK, I'm going to try and go to sleep now. I'm sure glad we have a T1 line at work and DSL at home, otherwise it would take forever for this thread to load. What should we do? Should we start a new "TWFirst" and continue?



Username: CstarU

...Cow tippin, no. There aint no cows cuz there's soybeans everywhere and so cows don't have no grass to eat (or smoke).

How about lysine fed Dwayne Andreas tippin'?  Are their name still in high regards down there?

I've been back a week, but has a family emergency to attend to, so I can't hang around here (forum) very much. When things settle down I'll be back with a vengeance. 

Anyway, Hawaii was great. I spent five nights in Maui and one night in Honolulu. I'll try to post some pictures of my trip in this thread as soon as I set up my personal web page. We have to keep your name on top, you know. 

regards and goodnight,

Juice 



Username: TWFirst

Actually, I think it was Dwayne's son who got tipped over a few years ago (he and another dude are in the pokey for that incident you referenced). As far as their name (ADM) being in high regard, after the Firestone incident, ANY other company is held in high regard, including the Soy City Motel.

Looking forward to details. Sorry to hear about the family emergency.

Will be in Chicago for 24 hours this weekend (MDW). I'll be thinking of you (but not in a homosexual way).



Username: CTBarnes

Great to have you back with us Cstar! Sounds like Hawaii was great fun.

Hope your family's OK! Sorry to hear something happened.

Anyhow, I think a TWFirst Vol. II thread would be a good idea. I'm on a University LAN and it still can take up to 5 minutes for this thread to load!

Let me be the first to get this thread off to a roaring start!

...and naked natives pictures from the National Geographic.

Please! I do have a reputation to uphold (not to mention a vow of celebacy).

As for the drink, well, as one friend asked me before joining the Jesuits: "Are you allowed to drink?" I answere "of course, I wouldn't be doing this if I couldn't!"

On second thought, I think I've just shot my reputation to hell. Literally.

Soon I'll be going to score in Georgia, Illinois and Quebeck

I'm embarresed to say that I read the thread a lot, it was very entertaining however I never contributed. But I do have to say that I thought the thread was a really cool and a unique idea. I mean its weird thinking about everyone posting all of these things on the internet, but its really great. Anyway, just thought I'd say hi and share my thoughts.

Goodnight,

TWFirst, the second volume or whatever is a brilliant idea!

TWFirst, do you have the most posts now on this website? Just a thought.

How can you guys start a new chapter. This is history, and you're abandoning it

What good is history if it takes 5 minutes to download? I'm grateful for this, as is quite probably my local network administrator.

P.S. could we get the original archived to cut down on the confusion?

I decided a second volume is worth it. I look forward to another three months on this, before we go to TWfirst: troisième chapitre!

So who's gonna get this post going? I think Lindy needs to take a trip and come back with VERY detailed stories of his sexcapades.

Welcome aboard! It's a little bit of everything here. Call it the cocktail party portion of the Airliners.net forum. Spend some time reading the posts and you'll get the hang of it. It's really a lot of fun.

In the meantime, I'm impressed Tzvika that you have the whole thing downloaded for posterity. If you're smart you'll be looking for a publisher.

As for Lindy, well, don't do anything I wouldn't do...

And I've Been Missing This?

Thu Nov 30, 2000 11:52 am

The teaser at the top had some great excerpts. Sorry I missed this for so long.

I especially like the wise-ass comments about Brissie's Aussie Rules, everyone else drools posts.

Although, I'll submit, Aussie is pretty rockin'

But answer me this: if it's so darned perfect, how come you can't buy a cheap broadband internet connection (or any broadband, for that matter, in most of Aussie)?

The old thread loads (at my home, with my modest little 416/416 DSL pipe) in about 12 seconds. It's grooveadelic.

And another thing.

What's up with driving on the wrong side of the road?

And what's up with that wacky metric thing? (that on'e a joke... on us).

And the whole time I was in Australia (about a month), I never once saw a blind person using those damned chirping crosswalk things. (Everyone else- ya just gotta hear 'em!)

I need a beer.

Have you guys tried the Pornstar 9000 to watch scrambled porn channels? It works really well with all cable companies and can order pizza as well! Don't try that 10 dollar one you make with Radio Shack parts though it doesn't work.
Or if you really want something interesting get a DSS satelitle and watch the Eastcoast broadcast & then the West!

Hey Blanche, how's it hangin? I will be in Florida around the same time you are I think (in Feb.) ,maybe we could meet up?

I agree with the poster a few back who said we need some trip stories from Lindy. I think he (Lindy) needs a new F/A too!

O.K. I'll be back....

Yes, you DO need help Donna . Yes, we should defintiely meet if you're going to be down there from Feb. 23-26!

Tbar220: You asked whether I had the most posts on the site. I think you are referring to the original thread entitled "TWFirst" as opposed to my own personal number of posts. I would just like to clarify to all that the original thread and this thread aren't about me. They just happen to have my username as the title because the original thread started out as a message from SKYTEAM to me. Rather, this thread is an outlet for all member who wish to cybersocialize and spew intellectual fodder. CTBarnes is correct in his description: imagine us all standing around with some music in the background sipping on martinis or Heinekins or something (for the underaged, substitute a cola beverage). BH346, perhaps you can think of it as the "Seinfeld" thread of airliner.net: a thread about nothing .

Now where the hell is CstarU???


Hey, here's a bit of personal news. So John (partner) calls me up last night (we don't live together) all excited because he got a cruise brochure in the mail and there's a fabulous itinerary he thinks we would love. We weren't planning to do another cruise for a couple years (we just went on one in 1999). BUT, it IS a fabulous itinerary, it's over Labor Day weekend so we'd only have to take four days of vacation, and it isn't outrageously expensive, especially if we can figure out a way to use frequent flier mile to fly free. Check it out:

Leaves from Barcelona, goes to Monaco, Rome, Sorrento, Malta, Mykonos, and then ends in Athens. So I'm already checking out flight itineraries. The thing that kind of stinks is that it'll be an open-jaw trip: into Barcelona and back from Athens. Lots of airline choices. Any suggestions?

TWFirst,

That itinerary sounds terriric. I'm envious! As to flight details, BA used to have a deal going for US residents where if you fly with them to London, you can add additional European segments for about $100.00 each. Might be worth checking out. Also, your cruise line may be able to throw in the air poriton of your trip for a competitive price. You might not be able to choose the airline, but it could save you some money.

The "Seinfeld" thread. Hmmm. I like that description, although I would probably be sipping a gin and tonic rather than a martini.

Well, got to get back to work. One of the older Fathers had an extra ticket to the Symphony tonight, so I have to show a little productivity so I don't feel too guilty about enjoying myself this evening.

Have fun!

NICE!!! Chicago Symphony. Awesome.

John just called. He just got off the phone with the cruise company, and the room type we wanted was already booked (bummer) but the guy said there's a good chance something will open up. So we're down a level - not that big a deal I suppose ($100 cheaper).

The guy told John they're trying to arrange a deal with BA, but the number he was throwing around ($1100) isn't that much cheaper than what I was finding last night on the internet. Plus, that's probably from ORD, so we may have to add on MSP-ORD.

Oh well, we'll see. I hope TW announces an awesome codeshare arrangement with a European airline that flies to both BCN and ATH, and then I can just use my miles for both of us.

TWFirst:

If you want to do the flight REALLY cheap:

Use your miles to fly TWA to LGW

From there, take Easyjet, which flies out of Luton. They fly both to ATH and BCN, and the fare should be around $150 one way for both segments. You can book them on line at www.easyjet.com. The only challenge is traversing London which you can do with the train.

I was just trying to help by checking out Ryanair for you. PS to anyone travelling within Europe soon, Ryanair is running some great specials. I think that they start at £1 (US$1.50) on certain flights. Alas, Ryanair does not fly to Greece. With the slew of upstarts these days in Europe, you are almost guaranteed something cheaper than BA. Get the cheapest trans-Atlantic fare, then check out airlines. Also have you considered a nice train ride? The possibilities are endless. Sounds like a fun trip, can I come?

EXCELLENT idea. I was think something down those lines. I was just doing some research. It appears Olympic airways has all the best time slots out of ATH, and I DO NOT want to fly Olympic. My idea was to use my TW mile to fly to either LGW, CDG or maybe even FRA (assuming it's up and running by then), and then fly something like BA, AF or LH (respectively) to BCN and back from ATH. Unfortunately, as I said, the non Greek carriers have really early morning flight out of ATH, and I'm not sure what time the boat gets in, but I'm assuming it's probably 8:00 a.m.

I can also use my TW miles to fly Icelandair to LHR, CDG, FRA, AMS or CPH. Again, same problem coming back from ATH.

I'll check out EasyJet's schedules. Sounds cool!!!

Hey dude, was typing my response to CTBarnes when you posted yours. Thanks for checking into Ryanair for me.

I just found out the new Athens airport is supposed to open in March, so I don't know if that will change flight schedules or not.

I looked at www.easyjet.com but they only have information for flights up to March, so I'd have to wait awhile.

We'll figure something out.

Good evening all,

I thought I'd ask for some wise words of wisdom from all of in this thread that I think I trust, from reading TWFirst (Vol. one, very entertaining).

Anyway has anyone every gone out with their best friend? I just wanted to know you're exoerience as I think I'm about to get involved in that type of thing. So did it work out? Is anyone still together? After (if you broke up) are you still as good of friends as you were before? This Sunday (I don't have school Monday, not sure why, but I'm not arguing) my well, almost best friend and I are gonna go out on our first date together. She thinks it'll be weird too, but it could work out, I guess. So I just wanted to know you guys/girls experiences, with guys or girls whatever.

Thanks so much, goodnight

There are pros and cons to that situation (as there are with all situations, I suppose).

On the one hand, if it doesn't work out, you risk damaging your friendship.

But on the other hand, and I personally believe the percentage of this happening is greater, your friendship provides a firm basis for a closer, more intimate relationship. I think relationships have to be rooted in friendship for them to be successful long-term. There's also a possibility that if it doesn't work out romantically, your friendship could be even closer because of the intimacy you shared (assuming you get intimate at any level - not just the "ultimate" in intimacy, if you know what I mean).

I have friends I've been intimate with, although there wasn't an expectation that our relationship might become more than just friends - it was just for fun - but the experience strengthened the bond of friendship. Not claiming that's universally true for all folks, but that's my experience, at least.

I wont have any trips for at least 3 weeks. Right now I'm in limbo. I got offer from NASA in Greenbelt MD to join them, but... I dont know if I could handle stuff they do there. And right now I have no idea what to do. To stay here and do little for good money, or go there, work like a dog for excelent salary.

Right now I'm chiling after nice lunch. Whenever you are in DC you must go to Mongolian restaurant in Chinatown. Food there rock! I dont like Chaineese food but this one is amaizingly good.

But I can promise that you will see more post with the stories about my women.
(Maybe tonight  hehe I'm going to my friends apratment, which is always full with some qts  )

Hey thanks for your advice, TW. That is the same way I feel. I wouldn't have any regrets at all going into it if I knew at the we would still be good friends. Well I guess time will tell....

N960AS, my best friend entered into this sort of thing. Although her's was long distance (Boston-London) she managed to make it work for a year (it recently ended as both their schedules were making it near impossible for them to see each other). She and him have remained friends, and she' flying out to Toronto to see him and finalise plans for her to get some of her stuff back. I think friendships are a good foundation. You already know much about this person, you know that you get along, you know that you have things in common. Although the risk is there, you may find out that you aren't compatible as lovers, and are just better off as friends. I, like TWfirst, believes that this can make for a stronger relationship later on. I wish you luck in whatever road you take, and where ever that road may lead.

I just realised I forgot to mention that my friend and her ex were friends from a Summer camp from 1997. They were friends for all that time, and then things turned a bit more romantic Nov. 1999.

Well thanks LH423. That is encouraging, I've known her since 1996, so maybe this will be similair. Although this is in no way long distance - hollywood hills to los feliz! 10 minutes away. Anyway I was just worried because I have a friend and he went out with his best female friend and it only lasted a week in March and it took them until August to be as good of friends as they were before. However I guess it is a risk worth taking, and if we are friends now you and TW are right that this couldn't really do anything but bring us closer. Also good point about the fact that we already know eachother well. I think it might work - I mean she is one of those people that when you call for a specific question you can end up talking for 2 hours about nothing and everything. Ok, well thanks again....I guess I shall let you know Sunday.

Have a nice weekend...

Although it may seem weird as first, you're going to notice quickly that because you two are friends, that you will feel a lot more at ease then you would if it was your first date with someone you don't really know that well. Your first date will most likely be like all your other times spending time with her, you'll just talk and enjoy each other's company for the time. After a couple of dates, you'll probably start to notice things change, like do stuff you'd never thought of before, like holding hands   But that is a natural progression, and if this is the right thing to do, you won't feel odd, or strange. If you do, get out of it then, because if it doesn't feel right after a few dates, it probably never will, and to let things go on longer will only hurt things more when they don't work out. But, I wish you the best, and hope all goes well on Sunday.

Well I hope it'll go like you think it will. I'm sure it won't be bad though. I mean it can't be that weird, we've had dinner together before. But now, as silly as it sounds I'm kind of nervous, I don't know why. Oh well, I have to call her in the morning and think of a place to go, but I can't! If anyone lives in LA or knows the area or anything at all I'd appreciate advice. Oh well, I'm sure it'll be ok. Thanks for your encouragement LH.
goodnight,

Hi Everyone, I know you have all missed me since I have not been on the internet for a couple of days. J/K. TWFirst, thanks for restarting this forum. It did take a while to load, even though my work internet connection is quite fast.

About the friendship thing, I've had an experience. I've know this girl since high school, and we've been really good friends. We tried the dating thing off and on, but I never really had a physical attraction for her. This was very hard for me, because I could see spending the rest of my life with her, but the spark was not there. I have felt that spark with other people, but it has never worked out, or just would not work out because of some key differences. We remained really good friends until a few months ago, when she said it was just too hard for her to be my friend and know that I was dating others. I think about her a lot and I miss her friendship, but I think it was the right decision that she made, I don't want to hold her back. I just need to figure out what I really want in life as far as love goes, and then maybe I'll be ready for the "C" word. Commitment.

Anyway, I had brunch with some friends today, EXCELLENT. They had to haul me out of there on a stretcher!!! I was so full. I hope you are all having a great weekend.

Geez, long distance relationships are tough.
Also, don't eat a foot long pepperoni and cheese sub with nacho cheese doritos, two chocolate chip cookies, and a coke. I found that out the hard way tonight!

Hey all.

Returned this afternoon (Sunday) from a whirlwind 24 hours in Chicago. I flew AirTran for the first time and must say I was quite impressed. You can upgrade to business class for only $25 one-way!! I've now flown in first class on a 717-200 on two different airlines! AirTran's FC seats are fake-suede, and they're just as hard as TW's 717 FC seats, although they do have lumbar (spelling?) supports. AirTran's '17's are laid out almost identical to TW's, but they don't have a closet for FC, and there are 12 FC seats vs. 16 in TW. Also, AT's row numbering jumps from row "3," where FC ends, to row "10" where coach starts. The service was excellent, and they are very rigid about their safety announcements and Captain-FA and FA-FA safety protocol announcements. My only complaint is that they make WAY too many announcements. On the flight from MSP-MDW, it seemed as if the FA was getting on the intercom every 10 seconds just to hear the sound of her own voice. They also tout their new 717's big time.

So, I stayed with my cousin, and he picked me up from the airport at 11:30 Saturday morning. We went and hung out on Michigan Avenue, and I bought a wedding present at Crate & Barrel (which was a freakin' MADHOUSE, as was all of Michigan Avenue). We then went back to his place so I could get ready, and he decided to crash the wedding with me (it was my friend's wedding, whom he doesn't know). The wedding had an open bar all evening, so we were well on our way by the time we left at 11:00 pm. We then hit a couple bars, and I was so exhausted because I didn't have much sleep the night before. We got to bed by 3am, but I didn't sleep a wink because my cousin snores like a damned chainsaw and he sleeps with the radio on (not music, but news radio). When it was time to get up, I was so physically exhausted and my stomach was all tore up. Was thinking I was going to ralph, but fortunately didn't. I got to the airport by 10:00 for my 11:10 flight but the incoming flight from Atlanta was late due to ice! in Atlanta, so the flight back to MSP was an hour late.

Anyway, I just prayed the whole flight I would make it home without collapsing or puking, and was deliriously happy to get home and into bed.

I'd definitely fly AirTran again to Chicago. I hope the rumors are true about AirTran and TW entering into a codeshare agreement because then I can earn Aviator miles when going to Chicago.

Later-
An unexamined life isn't worth living.

Sn330, your food choice reminds me of some late night drives while I am trying to stay awake. I eat everything in the car. A few months ago, I helped a friend drive to phoenix and then flew back. we left at 10pm and he was "tired" at about 10:45. I drove for six hours trying not to fall asleep eating nacho cheese doritos and cookies, and red vines. I was sick the whole weekend. We went mountain biking on south moutain, and I felt like throwing up the whole climb.

You flew on a 717, lucky! I really want to go on one, so it was nice? I don't know when I'd get on one, cosidering TW would be insane to fly them to LAX! Maybe if they put one on JFK-BOS or something. I suppose next time I go to ORD I could fly TW and connect through STL. I have a friend who flew on a TW one, he thought it was "an economy jet, but very quite." He is a Cessna pilot, well actually he has a TV production company the Cessna is a weekend thing.

Anyway, so I said I'd let you guys know about what's happening with me. So I was just about to call her this afternoon to say could I cancel when she called. I was feeling really weird about going on a date with her, I'm not even sure if I want to anymore. Anyway she was calling to say she couldn't because she couldn't get there or something. Do you think she really couldn't or she felt like I did? It'll be weird seeing her in school Weds (no school Mon and Tues for parent teacher confrences). Anyway, I said I'd let her know if I can do something next weekend. Ok, well I feel like I'm blabbing and taking up this whole post so I'm gonna shut up now and not talk about this until Saturday or Sunday when it is all behind me.

Goodnight...
