    Hell, I cannot be around much these days either. Job issues and fantastic weather keep me from sitting at my computer. However, I always try to make it to events.

    Yesterday, at the Storyteller's Night at the Rewards Hall (an event organized by our fantastic EM Cernunnos) only a handful of people showed up. It was fun and entertaining (although at some point I literally fell asleep; may you forgive my wordless disappearing; to my excuse: the event started at 2 am my time).

    I am hoping that the communities will become more active again and at least organize an event for Catskills once a week. I want to invite the players to visit such events, even if there's no valuable reward and no monster to slay. It can be fun just meeting people without hunting for anything.

    I think for a lot of folks it is the early signs of summer. For some it is a matter of personal issues. Cats always goes in waves though, Things will get busy again soon.

    I find that righting the ship of Capitalism and talking bad about our President is more fun than playing games.

    We're going to do more frequent cruises. One of the members captains a boat and has done a couple already,it was pretty neat i think.It gives you pirates something to try to act with in rp.

    The real question we should be asking is how long will UO be living off life support from pogo?

    Im only 7. I started playing when I was -4.
    So there!
    And I was thinking....
    When they say Catskills is "sleeping" is that kinda like when your goldfish is floating upside-down and your mom tells you he fell asleep?

    I went to the storytelling event...but left, because I didn't have a story to tell - with only 3-4 people there I figured it wasn't really open to simple listeners.

    I've been in-game but I haven't been posting on stratics much recently, though.

    I stick with Miller Lite. Tastes as good as any "expensive" beer I've ever tried. Plus....it's easy to keep a buzz going with beer.

    Ya know, some people like beer as well as the hard stuff. Some don't like the hard stuff and some don't like either.
    Personal opinions FTW :D

    Har har, it is funny to see in what direction this thread is turning!

    While I'd kill for ale and steal for liquor in Britannia, I actually hardly drink alcohol in real life. I'd be drunk after one beer already.

    har, that is actually true for me too. One beer and I'm falling asleep and I have way too much stuff going on that I need to stay alert for.

    so to the question, "Is Catskills Sleeping?", it sounds like with all the beer sucking and liquor chasing going on, it may be that Catskillians are busy... Sleeping It Off? :sleep2: :D
    Cheers! :beer:
