MIA bloggers below
His rules were too complicated so I simplified them a little.
I took the third sentence out of the first post that wasn't just a throwaway reprint of some joke or something.
Which took some scrolling for some of you... It takes a long time to collect them all but it was fun and I was needing to catch up on my reading anyway.
So here's my try at Overheard around the Chatham Artillery Punch Bowl.
As instructed, it starts with a quote from our dearly departed Acidman.
: They will come again, but I am ready.
: Yeah, like that's going to happen.
: Before I could check into it, I got a call from a cousin, letting me know about it, too. Richard
: You See! Half of them little guys are smoking and the other half looks sad because they AREN'T...
: Most you see are really ugly...and stupid...usually done on a dare, or drug/alcohol induced.
: And my crappy cellphone doesn't do it justice.
: I got my woman out of bed to have a look-see.
: .... 'tis the simple pleasures that drive me, folks..... and the simpler the better.....
: Yep. simple pleasures in life.
: Me, I'm what you might call a Silmarillion guy.
: (Who comes up with these kooky star names, anyway?)
: I can not even believe what I have to do today.
: It's amazing that we get anything done these days, isn't it?
: I am so pissed at him.
: Hey... Denny may be grouchy, but he is very frichen civilized.
: I yell all time and nobody listens!
: And take that smirk off your face, pronto.
: I think we all had a great time.
: The tour is concluded. The bus will depart in fifteen minutes.
And thus ends another successful blogmeet of the Blown-Eyed Blodgers.

A very instructive an successfull blogmeet, I would say.
Gal, you have done great.
Of course if you are sober, as in your case, it happens easier.
A great case of perseverance etc.

.Aw shucks. Thanks for the encouragement.
I thought it came out okay but in rereading it, I think I should have switched a couple of more quotes to make it flow better.
Oh well, I'm not going to change it now but I did think it was kind of amazing how the random sentences kind of built a coherent narrative.

.This is a rarity: a meme that requires real creativity.

Great job on the meme, Libby!

.Sorry Leslie, I ran out of steam. I knew I was forgetting some important players.
Marcus, LOL. I think the beauty of the narrative is that it's not at all clear what anyone is talking about.
Just like real life.
.... you know, when I finally meet your sorry ass, I'm not going to know whether to shoot you, stab you, or kiss you........ what turmoil you have caused!...
