Subject: [LMB] Birthday Tixie for October 19th
Here we are, spending the evening in the dungeons of VORRUTYER HORROR HOUSE,
and celebrating Carol Cooper's birthday. The staff here has cleverly converted
the place into a spa -- the racks and various stretching devices look like
they'd inflict hideous pain, but no. They give a pleasant stretch, and relieve
the gentle aches. The most torturous device here is the treadmill that has a
fake spinning log saw at the front of it, but only volunteers get to ride that
ride -- and even they can jump off at any time. The dunking station is
actually quite pleasantly warm -- several of us roll up our trousers and enjoy
a nice foot bath.
After that refreshing break, we take the elevator up to the Main Dining Hall,
and enjoy a boar feast, with all of the trimmings -- plenty of good things
here for vegans and people who don't want to look their dinner in the face.
Happy birthday, Carol!
