Re: Hello, etc!
This was a good choice, yes. Unless, of course, you intended to leave again; the addiction factor's pretty high (and we lost the exit door. Minor problem; you didn't want out, anyway, did you?)
Sleeplessness is endemic, but you can keep your sanity if you like. Most of us don't (well, assuming that the regulars had any to keep in the first place.)
A freelance publisher, eh? One of you isn't going to counterbalance the vast number of wanabee writers that hand around, but the social dynamic should be interesting to observe. *Unfolds bookie's table and starts calculating odds)
Oh, where are my manners? Welcome to this improbable establishment, where chaos theory beats statistics for predicting actions. Beverages can be obtained in the asylum (in the lounge) or, of Freda's between puzzles, in the Chron bar, against Pringles. A cast of thousands awaits your interests. Maps are useless; the expansion into extra dimensions to allow for overspill meant that projection into a mere two left everything unsaid.
Some of the inhabitants are a little strange, but don't let that worry you – you can start hysteria when you meet the others. Reality was overrated, anyway; this is cheaper and only slightly more dangerous than dropping acid to escape it.
