TheFocus: When one of the super-tournaments ends, shouldn't the posters move on and stop posting analysis after three weeks?

  TheFocus: Over on the <Rogoff> page, <tpstar> has posted what will definitely be a candidate for Post of the Year.

The sounds of liberals gnashing their rotten teeth is almost deafening.

  perfidious: Matter of fact, <tp>'s post is humorous.

  TheFocus: Morning now. Breakfast will a bowl of greens and some iced tea.

I will be having lunch today in Chinatown. It is nearly Chinese New Year. Year of the monkey.

We will go to Chinatown to buy Year of the Monkey shirts and eat jai.

I will keep you informed about this very exciting day.

I hope we see some lion dancing. That would be good luck.

Of course, these greens are not for eating.

  TheFocus: Lunch was Chinese food at Mandalay. Dim sum and jai (monk's food).

Very wonderful restaurant.

Weather was rainy so we left the Chinese Cultural Plaza early. We can find Year of the Monkey t-shirts cheaper in Chinatown.

Maybe just a glass of water.

  TheFocus: Supper tonight will be beans, potatoes, corn, greens and tortillas.

Tea and ice cream, of course.

  TheFocus: For anyone who was worried about whether or not I would miss lunch, I can confirm that lunch was a cup of coffee.

I get off early in the afternoon, so I can wait for supper.

Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: I will have ice cream later, with chocolate sauce and whipped cream.

Stop by if you are able.

  TheFocus: As a boy, I had a great talent for impersonating Elvis Presley.

I would say that I was better than any of those lamesters in Las Vegas.

But I didn't want to make a living like that.
