Jr. Skulker Mike Durkin sent us an email yesterday pointing out that
today, 11 / 19 / 1999, is the last date with all odd
digits until 1 / 1 / 3111 so we should celebrate. If only he had
mentioned this weeks ago so we could have planned something!
Today would also be an excellent day
for jr. skulkers to visit the Microsoft Windows Update site at http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
because a bunch of new items just showed up. There is a
new version 5.01 of Internet Explorer, which seems to have mainly bug
fixes with few new features. Here is a description of the
you want to download IE 5.01 and other items from Windows Update, you
must choose IE 5.01 alone, click Download, and complete the download
and installation and reboot. Then go back to Windows Update and
check anything else you want. Note that several of the update
items are included in the IE 5.01 download, so when you go back to
Windows Update after installing that, some items will no longer be

you ever skulked down a highway and seen a giant donut in front of a
donut store or a giant statue of a cowboy? How about a giant saxophone

Unofficial "Who's Who" guide to black nightclubs
This guy spends all week in the gym and needs little or no reason to take off his tight @$$ shirt revealing an even tighter top, so tight you can see his heart beating, and parade's around the club like Mr. Universe.
You know her . . . 300 lbs. size 48, buys a size 6 red and yellow spandex outfit. To the horror of others, she wears it to the club.
Takes three hours to finish one drink, then tries to fool everyone for another hour with a glass full of icewater & a straw. Has $3.50 in his pocket and a token.
Stands for "Old Guys". These guys just can't get over the fact that they are TOO OLD to be at the club. Their clubbing days are so far behind them their kids can legally buy alcohol. They try to be down with the younger generation by wearing gold fronts and try to speak slang using phrases like "What's up money!" and "That's fresh!"
THE OOOH GIRL
She's that girl that's basically doing the two step dance, until her song comes on and she screams to her girl friends "OOOH GIRL, THAT'S MY SONG!!!" From this point on it's shake what your mamma gave ya and she will dance with what ever is in front of her, guy, girl, bar, wall,
WASTE OF TIME WILLY
This is the one that buys a new outfit for the club; travels miles from
home at night to the club; pays $15.00 to get in the club; and when he's finally
in the club . . he just stands against the wall sipping on a cup of Pepsi fronting
like it's rum-n-coke.
Stepped out of the latest rap video, he feels the need to let everyone in the club know what name brand designer clothing he's wearing, down to his socks because he must have that one pant leg up. It may be pitch black in the club, but he's got $300 Versace sunglasses on. He's also the one making a call from the noisy
dance floor on his cell phone, with a bottle of MOET (with the label facing outward so everyone can see) in his other hand...
TATIANNA & LAQUITA
The female African American equivalent of Siskel & Ebert, but they don't review movies. Their table is right near the door so they can "review" everyone
who comes in: "That does NOT match, not even in the dark." "Uh, uh, no she didn't, she need to go back to the hair shop and finish gettin her hair
did!"; "His baby mamma must dress him."
THE 1st AND 15th POSSE
We only see them in the club around these dates...
TOUCHY FEELY TYRONE
He's the guy that loves to walk all over the club when it's crowded squeezing through girls and getting his free feels.
Not the TV host. She has no money, but somehow gets some sucker to buy her drinks all night---usually BILLBOARD BILLY (see above).
Has been in and out of jail so many times, he has no clue as to what is in or out of style. He shows up in a "Malcolm X" cap, gold fronts, an "Eight Ball" leather jacket and a silk polka dot shirt....TATIANNA & LAQUITA have a field day with them.
SHAHEENA STROBELITE & CO.
They look good in the club, but outside.....AHHH DAMN!! And I bought you, a drink!
