>>Those two words have to do with our G-mon’s penchant for “puzzling phrases,” which
was established in Season 1. Zip has to do with the question “Does he fasten, then zip, or
zip, then fasten?” referring to how someone “secures” his/her pants. Socks, I’m ashamed
to say, I don’t remember as well, but I think it has something to do with putting on “shoes
and socks” instead of “socks and shoes.”<<

IN the fasten or zip exchange between Sinclair and Garibaldi in ???Babylon Squared?? (I’m
terrible on episode names) after Sinclair has just about lost it with the fasten or zip stuff,
Garibaldi says “Wanna talk socks?” to which Sinclair replies “I’m not having this
conversation.”

Maybe I am out of line here, considering I seem to be the only person on AOL who thinks
Garibaldi wasn’t given a new personality, but, don’t you think the first thing Our Hero
would do is leave B5 and try and find G’kar? That would be the loyal and honorable thing
to do, since G’Kar was out looking for him. Garibaldi is a loyal and honorable guy.

I don’t think that what the bad thing is something current….I suspect from some things I
have
read elsewhere that there is something in his past he would rather remain buried. He even
said that to Delenn at one point….believe the quote is that “that some things are better left
buried.” Would he go after G’Kar….probably if the station wasn’t in danger. G’Kar
would
understand that Garibaldi’s first responsibility would be to B5..but after that or if he
thought
he wasn’t wanted or needed….yes…he would go after G’Kar.

Well, the reruns are giving me time to ponder the extra-B5 life our my hero and yours.
Who is back on Earth sending him care packages of mozzarella and salami? I think his
father is dead (bauga cauda episode) but does he have a family? If so, why doesn’t he call
home like Sheridan does.
I am feeling really bad about the….oops

rumor that there will be a lasting negative type thing hanging over G-mon’s head. But,
maybe that’s why I like this show so much. You would like to think that things will work
out fairly and equitably for people but in real life sometimes a person gets more than his fair
share of lousy things happening to him.
(Now, on to The Sound of Music….)
How do you solve a problem like our G-Mon’s
How do you make the visions go away?
How do help a guy who isn’t helpless?
A humorous dude, a friend to the end, a clown…
Many the times you know you’d like to tell him
“Open your door and greet the gals in line!”
But how do you fight the dreams
That may be worse than they seem
How do you guess what Joe has got in mind?
Oh, how do you solve a problem like our G-mon”s?
How do we get our Chief to have a date?

Well, a little uninspired but I’ll work on it..Caper

In addition to the station being endangered, you also have to remember that Michael does
*not* trust Lorien–especially since Lorien is so close to Sheridan. Yup–to our Garibaldi,

From: TheLadyT
Posted on: America Online

Oops….. NikVln e-mailed me about one of the categories she wanted to be listed in and I
realized I made a mistake on the list I sent to Brian Walz. Here’s what I sent him:

<<–Line Holder–patient waiter for that “one moment of perfect beauty” with the G-mon;
dedicated to giving the G-mon all the love and affection The Great Maker has denied him in
season four.
–Ductwork Crowd–feel they should not have to wait in line and so are making their way to
the G-mon’s quarters through the station ductwork; although none have successfully
navigated B5’s ventilation system, and get pulled out regularly by one Guardian or another,
they keep trying.
–Guardian of the Queue–member of the Order of Michaelines; loves the G-mon, just not
that way; dedicated to ensuring order in The Line; occasionally will go for carry-out for
starving Line Holders; may carry an assortment of weaponry he/she deems necessary to
ensure order.
–G-monkee–patient waiter for impatient Line Holders or members of the Ductwork Crowd
to give up.
–Observer–loves the G-mon, but has no interest in the “perfect beauty” the Line Holder’s
await; will chant “G-mon, G-mon” as required; may provide Top Ten Lists to help entertain
Line Holders as they wait.
–Chorus–sings the G-mon’s praises whenever and wherever possible; knows all the
words to the G-mon-ites’ “Haleluiah Chorus”; may provide songs to entertain Line Holders
as they wait (chorus members can also be Line Holders, Ductwork Crowd, Guardians, G-
monkees, or Observers).
–Spacesuit Bunch–didn’t get in line early enough to hang out in the hallway; sad, but
dedicated group who hang out outside the station patiently awaiting their chance to get to
the hallway.>>

The category Nik mentioned was “G-monkey,” which is a cross-over Garibaldi/Cpt Simian
fan. (heavy sigh) Oh, well–I’ll just have to send Brian another list….but before I do,
does anyone have any additions to the categories I’ve listed?

With bowed head,
The Lady T

still aspires to be Patron

BTW–I’ve gotten more info on sainthood from Brian. Annnnd, from what he’s posted on
the qualifications for sainthood, we’d *have* to win The Battle of The Line (i.e., get JMS
to give our G-mon a woman in season 4) for him to even *look* at me for sainthood. Ah,
but The Lady shall always dream…… I figure Mongoose still has a chance, though (grin).

OK, since I goofed to begin with, here’s the whole conversation:

“Okay. It’s morning. You’re getting ready to go to work. You pull on your pants. Do
you fasten and then zip or zip and then fasten?”
“What kind of question is that? Why do you want to know?”
“Why do I want to know? Because I think of these things sometimes. I was getting
dressed this morning, for a second, I couldn’t remember which I did first. I started
thinking about it: does everybody do it the same way? Is it a left-handed, right-handed
thing?”
“You think about this stuff a lot?”
“Yeah. Look, okay, I’m sorry I asked. You’re always so serious all the time. Not every
conversation has to be the end of the world as we know it.”
“I didn’t mean…”
“No, forget it.”
“Fasten, then zip. You?”
“Fasten-zip. Want to talk socks?”
“No.”
“Just a question.”
“I’m not having this conversation.”

Good tactics! Maybe you will confuse them enough to lure them away! Those in the
Ductwork crowd are hungry. They don’t send out for food like we Ladies of the Line do.
It would give away their location! Sheridan98 and Wranglt would find them very quickly.

Ours is not to question why….
Say, I have a question for all the G-Mon-ites. I was wondering, when did you first realize
that you were hopelessly devoted to the G-Mon?

To get the ball rolling, I’ll go first. I started watching B5 toward the end of season 2. I
liked it, so kept watching, but didn’t find anyone particularly compelling at first (Bruce B.
was the only one I knew from before). After watching for a few weeks, I had a dream
with Garibaldi in which he and I were…um…close personal friends (lucky for me, in
space no one can see you blush :-)

Anyway, I’ve been an avid, obsessive, lovestruck fan ever since. Looking forward to
similar tales.

Gosh, I feel just like Daffy…going second……

Like Mel, I joined the group after the first season and not every episode. I
worked nights (still do) schedule at the discretion of others…..

Have always liked whatever character that was exactly the good guy…the
one that was a little more complicated. Had seen Jerry on “Moonlighting”
and like him there so I watched at little closer. The more I watched the
more I liked. Have always liked men with attitudes. Especially if they are
the ones holding the seams of things together.

episode…..I was hooked, started watching faithly every week and now B5 is my favorite

then and there. Not only the character, but those blue eyes of our beloved G-Mon. He was
such a strong character, but there was something about him that made him seem vunerable.
I haven’t missed an episode.

Well, I seem to remember reading or watching something where Jerry Doyle said

Hi, I’m back for a bit!! (Yeah!! Please let me stay in Line – I’ve got a new song ready)

I started watching B5 one Saturday evening when the kids were bouncing off the beds and
walls. Had always liked Bruce Boxleitner (even back to guest slot on MTM show) so I
watched the whole episode. Lucky me – it was Coming of Shadows. Much as I liked BB,
it was Mr. G that kept me interested in the show and its characters. (Also, I was always
bothered by the life expectancy of red shirts on old Star Trek.) JMS gives our G-mon a 3-
dimensional character – full of problems and worries like the rest of us. (Now, if he’d only
give him a girl!)I guess I would say my fate was sealed by Severed Dreams and by his
delivery of “Nobody knows…” from Ceremonies of Light and Darkness. Since CoS, I
have watched and taped the show whenever possible (being a WSBK slave, that is not
always possible.)

Besides, what about GROPOS and the “nice butt” line?

I am very unhappy about the recent change to our beloved G-mon. Things don’t look
good. I think I am especially bothered that he hasn’t gone off to help G’Kar or at least sent
someone to do so…No, no. not a personality change!!!!

Now, here’s a question for JMS to solve:
If Mr. Garibaldi can inspire a mass of devotees who live 250 hundred years and who
knows how many light years AWAY from him, isn’t there SOMEONE on B5 who is
enamored of the Chief. I mean, isn’t there some nice woman on that station who would put
herself at the front of the Line in a moments notice. C’mon JMS, you don’t know women –
we don’t go for the Sheridan types; we like guys who can cook!!! and those who can cook!

Which reminds me, I have to buy some more Saran wrap – he’s been a good boy this
year…

Which also reminds me, if the Shadows and Psi Corps are so advanced, why didn’t they
just use one big super-sheet of plastic?….Were they going for the “fly caught in the
spider’s web” imagery?

More signs you are one of the true, the loud, the G-Mon-ites:

You exclaim, “Ah, nuts!” instead of “Oh s–t!” whenever your plans go awry.

You make your own bagna couda (and love it) even though you can’t stand
anchovies.

When someone at work (or wherever) tells you to do something, a voice in your
head shouts, “Orders! Orders! Whose orders?!” and you feel a sudden urge to
hit something.

Actually, I didn’t become a huge G-mon fan until I started to read this folder. I began to
wonder.
Certainly this many devoted followers can’t be wrong. So I went back and viewed the
episodes
that I have on tape (precious few!) and it was like I had been blind for so long. Was
originally
enamored of Sheridan, but figured that I was not saintly enough, and Marcus, whom I
would
greatly appreciate coming and warming me up while I stand (float) out here in my

A slight change in tone here, gang:

I’ve been listening to Franklin’s voiceover at the beginning of ??”The Summoning”??? (I’m
still terrible on episode names.) and counting on my fingers and I believe that Franklin’s
comments tell us that our beloved G-mon disappeared on New Year’s Eve. Would I be out
of line to suggest that the day of such mournful memories should be somehow
memorialized with an official G-mon-ite ritual of some sort? I am open to suggestions for
the nature of the observance. Am also accepting submissions of appropriate music to mark
the day.

Thoughts?

Since we all know how much jms *loves* merchandising, this is my B5 wish list:

1. I want one of the afore mentioned ‘Tickle Me Garibaldi’ dolls(telling you what my
husband said
about this one would be a TOS violation!)
2. Bearabaldi Teddy Bear (jms *REALLY* loves cute)
3. A Mimbeari Teddy Bear
4. Garibaldi’s Pasta Primer Cookbook(a must have for any G-Monkey you know)
5. Garibaldi Cooks Italian Volumes 1 & 2….When purchased as a set it comes with a T
shirt that says ‘Garibaldi Cooks!’
6. A model of the B5 Station(my husband’s ST Enterprise has held the place of honor on
top of the TV long enough!)
7. A model of Garibaldi’s PPG and PPG rifle(they would look so good along side of my
hubby’s phaser collection)
8. B5 Ornaments for the tree(to go with??????you guessed it didn’t you?????His ST
ornaments)
9. A Garibaldi Collector’s Plate(this one is for real!!!! They are releasing Sheridan’s Plate
first! )
10. This one’s for reall too: Wishing all my fellow G-monites and Lurkers too, the
Happiest of Holidays and a Bright New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

p.s.there are really some model kits to come out, but next year
ornaments would be nice too…….HMMMM…jms???

Thinking back, that was one of mine, too, though I didn’t really realize it until this year. It
was an ongoing thing for me, with many episodes contributing. “Midnight on the Firing
Line” made me come back for more, but then there’s “Eyes”, “Babylon Squared”,
“Revelations”, “Geometry of Shadows”, “Coming of Shadows”, “GROPOS”, “Divided
Loyalties”, “Matters of Honor”, “A Day in the Strife”, “Point of No Return”, “Severed
Dreams”, “Ceremonies of Light and Dark” (I think this is where I figured it out ;>), “Ship
of Tears”, “War Without End Part 1″, “Grey 17 is Missing” (believe it or not), and
“Z’ha’dum”. Yes, I’m sure I left someone’s favorite out, and I’m sorry. :)

How does establishing a chat room for the night sound? Make it a once a year thing?

I got an e-mail from Brian today. Seems he might have our G-mon-ite section at least
partially up later this week!

Keep those e-mails coming people….I won’t send anything to Brian unless I have
permission to repost first…..so pullleeaassee send me your okays to repost. (That address
again is GmonAPS)

Couple of things I wanted to mention:

If you want to clean up typos, grammar, etc. first, that’s okay.
If you don’t want to use your name/e-mail address, that’s okay (just tell me how you want
to be listed).
Just because you’ve submitted your name to be posted doesn’t mean you’ve given your
permission for your posts to be reposted–so I need that.

Integrity is important to me. All I want to do here is share a little of what we’ve shared
with other Garibaldi fans on the net. However, I’m not the type of person to take things
without somebody’s permission; among other things, that tends to tick people off. We’re
such a wonderful little group here–I just want others to see how wonderful we are.

BTW, I’m working on the G-mon-ite History and hope to have it done soon. I’ll be
posting it here as well as sending it to Brian. So, if anyone wants to write/rewrite their
own version of our history, Brian says he has room…..

disappeared into a time rift and founded the Blue Suede Council on a distant alien world
(someday, it is said, the One King will return).

Q: What would you get if you crossed Garibaldi with Elvis?

A: A big-hearted, generous milk-drinking fellow who baked his own cookies, knew
exactly who’d been naughty, packed his Grandmama’s pistol under his belt and who,
along with his elves, dared challenge the Vorlons with, “You have not always been here.
We have.”

Q: What did Garibaldi say when he met Santa Claus in the docking bay?
A: “Why is it always, ‘Ho, ho, ho’? Why not, ‘Ha, ha, ha,’ or ‘Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk’? Or

Posted on: America Online

(according to The Lady T….)

When I began hanging out in the B5 folder on AOL last July, I found it a somewhat
depressing place. Persistent rumors about the death of a major charactor, especially those
of our Michael being “the one to die,” permeated the folder. I began to grow as concerned
as the other posters. (I was still new to the internet back then and hadn’t discovered many
B5 sites.) One evening early last September I came across a post that sounded somewhat
familiar, at least it echoed my sentiments exactly; it said: “I swear, JMS, if you kill
Michael, you BETTER let him get laid first!” Never before had I seen my depression
spelled out so clearly; I was quite impressed. Then I noticed the following words: “The
Lady T Speaks From Atop Her High Horse….” and I went into shock. I checked the
author of the post–yes, it said TheLadyT–and my shock became embarassment. I couldn’t
believe it. I didn’t remember writing it. I quickly posted the following: “What’s this? I
didn’t write this! Although it does sound vaguely familiar….oh no…..it couldn’t
be…..was I….actually….sleep lurking?” and “Blushing mightily,” I made my exit. I
didn’t expect anyone to believe me–*I* didn’t believe me. What’s more, I didn’t expect
what was to happen as a result of those sentiments in that earlier post actually having been
spoken out loud.

Suddenly volunteers appeared out of nowhere, saying that they’d be happy to take care of
Mr. Garibaldi. Others simply heartily echoed my sentiments. I recall someone saying
something about a line, so–despite my earlier embarassment–I made a post titled, Line
Forms To The Rear: “Regarding the line for Mr. Garibaldi……wasn’t I the one who
suggested it in the first place? Shouldn’t I be first in line? What ever happened to “Ladies
first”?!?? I was “Still Blushing,” but from that moment The Line was born.

This was also about the time that our Mongoose, sweet soul that our Mongoose has, began
posting Top Ten lists about Mr. Garibaldi. Earlier lists were simply music collections, but
those of us who hung out back then will never forget “Take a Number,” the Top Ten
Reasons Why Michael Garibaldi is B5’s Hottest Ladies’ Man (from the hairy hands of
Corona Simia (fan) Press)–our Mongoose was well-established as a Captain Simian fan by
that time. Mongoose’s list warmed our hearts, and gave us lots to talk about to boot!

Suddenly the folder exploded with Love. Yes, we were all still depressed, but we
discovered we all shared two things–a love of Mr. Garibaldi and a love of humor. As The
Line grew, so did our affection for each other. In October, as I readied to make my
pilgrimage to see The Great Maker in Tampa, I said my farewells and told them all to
behave and that I’d be back Sunday night to check up on them. I returned from
Necronomicon, a little starry-eyed from seeing The Great Maker, to discover that others
had ventured into the Top Ten arena, and one very special post–again from our Mongoose-
-titled “Slighly Off Topic.” Far from humorous, our Mongoose stated quite simply how
beautiful and loving our little group was and how much Mongoose appreciated us. Others
had echoed Mongoose’s sentiments and, after having just seen The Great Maker myself, I
added, “Mongoose–Garibaldi brings together like people; JMS is not considered The Great
Maker for nothing. He created this wonderful person that those of us who hang out on this
board love so dearly for his own reasons (i.e., his story), but a marvelous off-shoot is that
he’s brought together so many folks who mesh together so very well. Congratulations,
JMS: Even after meeting you (or should I say “Especially after having met you”), this
Lady *still* worships at your feet (blush).” (Okay, so I was more than “a little” starry-
eyed–hehe)

Posted on: America Online

By this time The Line was getting quite long and getting a little out of hand–nothing big,
mind you, just a few folks talking about combinations to the back door, discussions of
entering the ventilation system, and someone who resurrected Winky Dink to “draw” her
own entrance to our beloved security chief’s quarters. So, Wrngtl–who had been
watching these proceedings–decided to step forward to take up the job of Guardian of the
Queue. In no time, she-of-the-nun-trained-voice had these love-starved folks towing the
line and standing straight, although she’s *still* having a problem with the few who
infiltrated the air ducts.

In addition to glad tidings, of Jerry Doyle being in the season 4 opening credits, that I
brought back from Necronomicon, I also brought with me Sheridan98, who quickly
assumed the role of Guardian-Second and brought with her lots of assorted weaponry
she’d collected to help defend and keep order in The Line. Oh, and she brought her cell
phone (quite an asset we later discovered when Line Holders and Observers alike began
feeling faint from hunger).

To add to the humor in the folder, I began making more “serious” posts. I started with a
Newsflash, followed quickly by The Eleven O’clock update; next thing I knew, I was up to
my ears in the first Tale of The Line (a grand battle against The Great Maker to gain
romance for our G-mon during season 4) and, like the Top Tens, people were asking for
more. Still new to the net and not properly balancing my online time and my personal life,
I decided I needed my life back. So, I plotted to destroy The Line–foolishly thinking at the
time that I actually could–and wrote The Great Maker to tell him of my plans and beg for
an answer: yes or no, romance or none. Well, if you’ve read the story, you know what
happened. However, when it was over, The Line remained; it had become “that which
would not die.”

As time passed, I found I could no longer lurk on the sidelines. My friends needed hope–
our G-mon had been kidnapped by the Psi-Corps and probably had a sleeper personality
implanted–so, not knowing what else to do, I announced a renewed Battle of The Line.
About this time, providence led me to discover The Church of Joe; by mid-December, I’d
written our High Priest Brian with a proposal to bring the G-mon-ites to the internet. (I
cc’d The Great Maker on it and amazingly enough He replied to me before our High Priest
did.)

Since then, I have been feverishly gathering posts and permissions and collecting names.
The more names I can gather, by the way, the more ammunition I will have in the
upcoming Battle. So, if you haven’t submitted your name as a lover of our G-mon and
supporter of our Battle to get Michael Garibaldi romance for season 4, PLEASE–submit
your name. The Grand Battle is coming, and we stand at The Shrine of The G-mon
preparing our forces, saying our prayers, and performing all the rites necessary before
(and, get this) taking The Line to The Great Maker’s office door to make our next plea!

It’s not too late, people. Any episode not “in the can” can be fixed to provide our G-mon
with a little love.

spacesuit just your size waiting for you. Bio-support is very effecient about changing the
air tanks. They respect our devotion I guess. I heard that they might convert Gray 17 to an
area that might be suitable for The Line. The ever lengthing line of spacesuited females is
beginning to draw too much attention from some of the other sentient races. OF COURSE,
if this line would ever MOVE this wouldn’t be a problem.

<<Q: “Jerry ‘Garibaldi’ Doyle (sp) recently stated in an interview that he
was looking to leave mid season this year (season four). Whether the
writer of the article (the interviewer) made it look like Doyle (sp)
was unhappy or if Mr. Doyle really is unhappy, it came across that way.
He seems to blame the writing (you in this case) for not developing his
character more. To add fuel to the fire, the rumor mill has been
grinding out that Bester will be reappearing soon and Doyle’s character
will be leaving on the same show. How do you <JMS> as the semi-sole writer
of the series respond to an actor who believes that his abilities are
not being fully used.”

A: First, I’ve never seen Jerry say that in print, and he’s not leaving
mid-season year 4, and in fact he’s had more to do this season than he
has in a long time. He has a huge arc this season. B5 is an ensemble
show, so there’s always going to be some times when actors get more or
less to do, that’s part of the job.

I commend to you the article that just came out in (you’ll pardon the
expression) Starlog this month…it’s an interview with Jerry that
addresses all of those points, and disputes all the comments you just
made here. >>

Sorry. Eddie Munster was played by Butch Patrick. In addition, Jerry Doyle didn’t take
up acting until just a few years before B5 started. He used to be a stockbroker. Between
various inquiries into the ethics of the profession and the crash of the market in the late
1980’s, J.D. began to look around for other ways to make a living, and decided that acting
was a lot more fun than stockbroking — er, stockbrokering — er, stockbreaking —

Subj: New Plan…

From: CntZero
Posted on: America Online

The G-Monkey curses the failure of his air duct plan to capture a Lady of the Line, and
wonders, for the first time, if he should have changed the lasagna he was using as bait at
least once.

Meanwhile, word has come in that the line is snaking its way through Grey-16: He grabs a
cutting laser and takes a six-second elevator ride to Grey-17. The plan is simple; he’ll cut a
hole in the ceiling, which is the deck of Grey-16 and a Lady will just fall into his arms.
What could possibly go wrong?

If you’re considering Grey17 as a place for the spacesuit bunch, that *might* be
considered. However, as far as rest and some semblance of a life is concerned, The Line
holders need no rest or semblance of a life: they just need The Line to MOVE. ;^)

BTW, if you *really* want to take care of that Zarg, see Sheridan98…..she may have
some of that pepper spray (wink) left, or some other interesting piece of weaponry laying

O, my Michael Garibaldi. I have missed you so much
I long for your quick smile and your gentle touch
Your laughter, your kindness and your gallantry
My knight in shining armor you always will be.

A dark Shadow ship came and took you away.
Where you had ben you just couldn’t say.
Reliving only pieces of a shattered memory,
Not even knowing how you came back to me.

Afraid to look closely, for what you might see.
But knowing you must, for you to be free.

1. I will not read the Garibaldi folder more than once a day.(twice daily on the weekends)
2. I will remember to cover the keyboard with plastic when looking at G-mon Gif’s and
avi’s so as
not to short out keyboard.
3. So I will not be kicked again by hubby: I will not mutter Garibaldi’s name while
dreaming
(at least not loud enough for him to hear!)
4. I will not call out “Oh Michael…Michael” in moments of passion with hubby(his name
is NOT
Michael). Luckily haven’t done this one yet!
5. I resolve to be a more patient member of the Line. Sigh………….
6. I promise to share more of my chocolate with the other Ladies of the Line.::sniff..sniff::
7. I resolve to write and/or call the person who has helped to schedule several of the local
media
cons and beg/plead/bribe with chocolate chip cookies for Jerry Doyle to be a guest next
year.
I’m in the middle of the US so everyone will not have to go too far.
8. Begin the Jerry Doyle Diet Plan. Place picture of the G-mon on the refridgerator and
pantry
doors…..See the G-mon…forget the food……

I got word from Brian that he’s got a “dummy” page set up for us. Unfortunately, I can’t
give out the url to the public (besides, it needs a LOT of work–sigh), but The Shrine of the
G-mon is coming! I’ll let you know more after I finish reviewing it and giving Brian my
feedback.

For those newbies to this folder, the Church of Joe can be found at
http://www.pacifier.com/~brianw/COJ. For those who haven’t checked it out, enjoy–it’s
quite funny. Brian and I are setting up a special “G-mon-ite” page for the internet folks
who don’t have AOL, yet probably are G-mon-ites and just don’t know it, yet. ;^) I’m
incredibly disorganized, and Brian’s being wonderfully patient with me, so of course
everything is proceeding slowly (the Lady apologizes profusely to all). Fortunately, now
that the holidays are near over, I hope to get more work done. (Right now I’m up to my
ears trying to organize the music.)

Also, to the newcomers, check out my posts “Battle Plan Revisited” (12/13/96) and “G-
mon-ite Categories” (12/15/96) for info to join up.

BTW, anyone heard from Scalar? I sent her an e-mail a little over a week ago and she
hasn’t read it yet. Did she say she was on vacation and I just missed it? I’m a little
concerned. :^(

We’ve approached Howard about some B5 guests, but he feels he’d have to be tough with
them as that’s his routine, and he doesn’t want to do that, he likes the show too much.

jms>>

JMS–the thoughts I’m thinking about you right now could get me excommunicated from
the Church of Joe! Yes, the man does excellent celeb interviews, and I have the utmost
respect for the man’s business accumen. However, he does more to support the
degradation of women than most sleezeball magazine companies! Annnd, in the name of
HUMOR?!!!

Get real, JMS!

Apologies to all my G-mon-ite brothers and sisters. I would have posted this in the
AskJMS folder, but I’m tired of people disrupting His folder with their tirades, and this
would probably start another string of ’em. Hmmm….perhaps we should feed JMS to the
Zarg instead of Howard?

Now, now, LadyT. Calm yourself.

First of all, there’s no sense in feeding JMS to the Zarg. I seriously doubt the Zarg is wired
for Babcom communications. I can just hear the technicians saying “you want us to stick
this cable connection WHERE?”

Yes, we want JMS to finish out the story in five seasons, and yes, peace and quiet are in
order, but somehow I suspect that inspiration is not to be found in the belly of a Zarg.
(Whether Howard should be found there is left as an exercise for the reader.)

Now, what JMS said

<<We’ve approached Howard about some B5 guests, but he feels he’d have to be tough
with them as that’s his routine, and he doesn’t want to do that, he likes the show too
much.>>

gave me great giggles. “he’d have to be tough with them”? What’s he going to do, rake
Ivanova over the coals for the coffee beans? An expose on the Chief’s fascination with a
certain Egyptian God of Frustration?

Oh, the real world. Well, then, is he going to get tough about Andreas Katsulas eating
BBQ chicken while still in makeup and costume? Or Mira Furlan not liking Turkish coffee?

Surely, LadyT, the best way to get ‘satisfaction’ in this case is to entreat Our Beloved
Mongoose to create the ultimate Howard Stern – Michael Garibaldi interview.

Then after that, we can feed Howard to the Zarg.

This is catchup for Gina … drifting thoughts (hey I gotta use em all since there are so few)

first off..
… an old but goldie….AnnieWheel wrote (about the”just an idea”) “I wonder if using
Grey Sector is a good idea? It has been refered to as the “Centauri Triangle.” We would
not like our sisters to go there never to return.”
*** Annie — no one returns from the line EITHER…

then
the LadyT has the nerve to talk about going on a diet ….someone hold her down (yeah
you … the 17 inch tall biped over there … You’ll do…) while I stuff some of that lasagna
down her throat… HARUMPHHH who ever heard of a toothpick on a diet ….

then …
dealing with the problem of the munching cabbage patch doll that is gobbling up
mongooses tail WaywardFlf suggests we have Howard Stern interview it … what the tail??
why? it’s a perfectly good tail and it has nice morals and is friendly and attached to
mongoose ……. OH .. you mean the doll.<intense chagrin>… are you sure he can stand
the pressure of interviewing someone/thing of higher intellect??? :^}

…oooo and it gets scarier … now K94ever is offering to BITE mongoose…
hmmmmmmm what was that remark about paint fumes>>>> someone check the oxy
content on this board…

… I kinda like WaywardFlf’s idea of the interview and feeding of the Zarg… (You want
the techs to do WHAT??????? – I see the JMS remarks as admittance of the limitations of
Stern — my reading — I can make it say whatever I want!) HOWEVER…. I say we feed
the ZARG FIRST and let mongoose do the interview anyway …..the ultimate Howard
Stern interview would best be done WITHOUT Stern. heheheheh

Anywhichway — as we approach a new year I wish all of you the best and more crazy
postings…..

Posted on: America Online

The humor comes quick and fast, much to quick for me.

Hang with me Those of the Line, this is relevant–I promise.
Last year I discovered a USA Network original program called “Forever Knight”, starring
Gerient Wyn Davies (heavy sigh!). Perhaps some of you have seen it. It was about an
ancient French vampire attempting to alter his appetites in modern day New York. It was
actually a decent twist to vampire legends. Looking at Davies wasn’t all that bad, either.
Forgive me, but I had lost B5 and MG to the abyss of cable nowhere outlets. FK was all I
had.
Anyway, the relevance to We of the Line is this: FK was pulled off the air, but my
scurrilous cable company had the good sense to give me SCI-FI channel, and I found the
vampires once more.
I frantically searched my TV listings, but alas and alack, did not find B5. I presume,
however, that a pester campaign might be started to get B5 on SCI-FI, provided it meets
the requirements for rerun syndication.

2. I will seek employment that requires that I sit at terminal all day watching G-mon screen
saver
image.

3. I will take more showers, thinking about G-mon.

4. I will wrap husband up in saran – oh, great dinner tonight – salmon on the grill with
provencal
herbs – he’s a VERY good boy but no high forehead like G-mon’s

5. I will not curse the name of the Great Maker – bring back our G-mon’s mind – preferably
in his wicked cute body

6. I will try not to consider signing up for GROPOS – duty above and beyond (and below)

7. I will try not to get JD mixed up with the G-mon – but really, he likes baseball, too!!??
(Which
episode does he “play ball” in?)

8. I will remember to use the facilities BEFORE reading this file – almost lost it on one
entry

9. I will wait patiently knowing that good things (that’s G-ood) come (okay, I couldn’t
resist) to those who wait….

10. I will daily thank my lucky stars for the funny friends here in Line (and in the ducts)

First, all good wishes for a healthy, happy New Year!

While I spent most of yesterday in quiet reflection and meditation on my screensaver
(which was displaying only images of the G-mon) out of respect for the day on which
terrible events befall our great one, I did lighten up last evening, and cuddle up by the fire
with my hubby (after another of his sensational dinners). Before we got round to the
popping of the bubbly, we watched a bit of TV (even though B5 wasn’t on) Low and
behold: ******Duck Dodgers in the 24th and a half Century!!!!******* I believe it was
the WB network, Channel 11 WPIX out of NYC for us here in Northern Jersey. I thought
it terribly appropriate. WB gives our G-mon and the whole of B5 so little respect most
times.

Did anyone else catch it?

Peace & joy!
Carolyn

Gina…They are letting you handle sharp objects again?hehehehehe:)

I have been researching the cloning question….The MedLab data base is quite thorough on
this subject. Even if we had space in one of the Medlab areas, the rate of replicant failure
for an entire organism is extremely high. You want a spleen? I can clone a spleen. Skin?
Can do that in my sleep. We clone alot of skin for our burn patients. You name the organ!
However, an entire organism? No can do. Anyway, how would you clone a sense of
humor? That’s what makes the G-mon so special;)(well ONE of the things)

Dr. Franklin is so big on the ethics question surrounding cloning entire individuals. He
would NEVER allow such a thing in HIS MedLab.

Subj: An advisory from C&C
Date: 1/3/97 7:30:29 PM
From: Fafayin
Posted on: America Online

The following is an urgent advisory to all Star Fury squadrons from Babylon 5 C&C:

It has come to our attention that there is a serious navigation hazard in the vicinity of Blue
Sector, Crew Quarters. Upon investigation, it was determined that the hazard consists of a
large
group of space-suited individuals arranged in a linear fashion, extending from an airlock
out
several hundred meters into surrounding space.

Since these individuals appear to be civilians, a request was sent to Security to remove said
individuals. However, our request elicited the highly unusual response “Will you people
stop
pressuring me? I’m not a machine!” [Note to MedLab–it might be prudent to run
additional scans
on the chief. Please advise.]

In lieu of a solution from Security, C&C has requested that Maintenance investigate
alternatives
for the proper housing of these individuals. Maintenance has thus far been hampered by its
inability to determine the exact environmental needs of this group. It seems every time a
maintenance tech goes out to these individuals to survey them, the tech is chased away with
admonitions such as “no cuts” and “the end’s back there”. Since some of these individuals
appear to be carrying swords, the techs have been understandably reluctant to pursue the
matter
further. Given their lack of information, Maintenance is considering permanently docking
cargo
carriers to the airlock; the logistics and gravitational rotation adjustments may take some
time to
complete before they can proceed. You will be advised of any construction before it
begins.

There is an additional navigational hazard associated with this group. Securebot
surveillance
shows that these individuals have a tendency to wave at passing ships. Xenosociology
informs
us that this particular wave is the Minbari welcome to Valen’s return, while to the
Pak’ma’ra it
indicates the presence of a certain highly-sought condiment. As a result, we have had three
near-misses in the past week.

Again, all squadrons are advised to be particularly vigilant near both allied warships and the
group of individuals near Blue Sector. Be advised that the number of individuals appears
to be
increasing at a steady rate.

Mom always taught me to share, so…

I spent far too much of my vacation browsing web sites, but found lots of pics and sound
clips of the g-mon. On ISN I found a minivid of Sheridan, Franklin & Garibaldi in medlab.
Franklin is bandaging the G-mon’s arm, and our man is semi-shirtless. I grabbed what I
thought was the best frame out of the vid and saved it as a JPG file. IT’s small and grainy,
but hey, it’s the G-mon. IF anybody wants a copy let me know.

As I write this I wonder if it’s legal. Maybe you should forget I mentioned it. Or you could
go to ISN and get it directly.

“This is Jan Mahan, and yes, you heard correctly. The Battle of The Line continues. We

indeed false. The Line has continued and grown immensely. In fact, we were just
informed that a Special Advisory was issued to all star fury pilots to be extremely cautious
when flying near the area just outside Blue Sector. We hope to have a full report from our
on-site reporter, Harve Brenmar, soon. Apparently the self-proclaimed leader of the Battle

by itself goes on seemingly to infinity.) Is there to be a formal service? If there is a formal
service there will be those that wish to attend. Brother Theo has already sent several

I’ve visited this folder a few times before, but I never really stayed. (I was at college at

A while back someone asked when each of us knew we were devoted. Well, I’m
ashamed to say I made a conscious decision not to watch The Gathering when it first aired,
but I discover B5 maybe mid-first-season. Now I’m hooked. :-)

I probably fell for Mr. G with the first ep I saw. (Much apologizings – I can’t remember
what it was.) He’s real. He’s got his own problems. Plus he likes ‘Duck Dodgers in the
24th & a half Century’ & he cooks. And, let’s face it, we could take trust (or his problems
with…) & loyatly for a quite a while. Any takers? Well, it would probably take me
forever to lay out exactly why he’s so great. Unless… Someone wants me to…

I happy to say that I’ll be sticking around in here for a while. :-)

Oh, and is there any room left in the hallway for me to join The Line? Oh, please say
yes…

He is definitely my favorite characterr. Now things are so grim with the war and all, he is
the only one with a sense of humor left. He is a much needed breath off air. Even when
he isn’t there he’s funny; “The Egyptian God of Frustration.”

Yes, The Shrine has opened! Check it out….the url is

Click on Subchurch, then click on The Shrine of The G-mon. BTW, don’t forget the dust
masks…plenty right at the door…you don’t want to end up in Medlab like that silly ISN
reporter (who deserved it anyway….what an attitude that guy had! Tell you more about it
later–grin)

I’m so excited! Brian just e-mailed me to say he’s already got two member requests (the
site just opened, too) and will e-mail them to me shortly. Annnd, Gina got an e-mail from
someone to tell her she forgot the Zima in her food orders!

Welcome Kris.

There is always room for one more in line. Please add your name to the food list
so that we know what to get when we order food. Space suits are provided near
the airlock. Renovations on Grey Sector are coming along nicely and we should
have indoor accomodations for those currently in line shortly.

Now if we could just get the line to move……

The Ductwork Crowd are those who don’t care to stand in Line–the Line being, of course,
those who are dedicated to giving our G-mon all the love and affection The Great Maker is
denying him in season 4–and these ladies are trying to get to the G-mon’s quarters via the
station’s ventilation system.

The G-Monkee, hearing that yet another Lady has joined The Line, hurries to put the
finishing touches on his his motorcycle; just like his nemesis built, only better, for he has
modified it with a homing system, which he locks on to KPavuk’s signal.

Minutes later, the Ladies of the Line (Space-suit division; including its newest member) are
startled to see a two-wheeled ground vehicle shooting out of the airlock like Evil Knievel.
They start taking bets on whether its rider will succumb to explosive decompression, or
will the defenses on Epsilon 3 shoot him down first?

I seem to recall that in the comics, there was one scene where Garibaldi and G’Kar were

were in their skivvies and Garibaldi had on…gasp!…horrors!…boxer shorts depicting

upcoming “Battle of the Line”, they should fetch quite a price on the black market arms
market. Might be of some value if the Vorlons find out who has been paying our bills….

Sorry, I can’t answer that one. We all remember what happened to the Lady of the Line
who brought up a certain bald Star Fleet captain in a conversation about MG. Well, an
even worse punishment awaits G-Monkees who compare Ladies of the Line to a certain
raspy-voiced Star Fleet captain; which seems inevitable in this instance (our subscription to

10. A medlab room being returned to normal
9. A medlab room being checked out
8. Any room being checked out (Thanks so much for the small and grainy, Carolyn)
7. Another action scene, like “Severed Dreams” but watch the arm this time, JD
6. Someone else’s “flash forward” so we can be sure JMS won’t dump him
5. A conversation with an eligible woman
4. Another tender scene, like “Light and Darkness”

Subj: Peace and Quiet on Epsilon 3

From: WaywardFlf
Posted on: America Online

What’s a poor scholar to do?!

What with the Shrine construction, the food forays, the crew in the ducts falling out and
spoiling the wonderful polishing job I’d just done on the Boogie Buckets, and the general
din —

— well, it’s just hard to get that scholarly research about the G-mon done.

(And while it is true that contemplating The Great Vorlon God Boogie is done from within
a bucket, the bucket concentrates noise incredibly, and you just try contemplating
*anything* with the noise of all the Ladies of the Line in there with you!)

So, in the name of research, I made the sacrifice and went down to Epsilon 3 and asked
Draal for a bit of space. He was more than willing once I pointed out that the research I will
be doing might prevent the Line itself from extending all the way to Epsilon 3. A little bit of
drilling later, and I have some quiet space for meditation. The Epsilon Three Meditation
Center is now open.

I realized that since the Vorlons are known as “Lords of Order,” The Great Vorlon God
Boogie must be ultimately so. And who would be favored by the Ultimate Lord of Order?
The Chief of Security, of course. It dawned on me that T.G.V.G. Boogie and the G-mon
would be perfectly matched — as the objects of meditation.

An offer for fellow G-mon-ites: Upon request I’ll forward to you a montage of the
Meditation Center (a bit bare as yet, I know) and the G-mon Boogie Meditation Alcove.
(File size, about 300K.) There, amongst the Boogie Buckets, is the image of the Chief
himself. Of course, it isn’t a Shrine, sigh, but it’s quiet and comfortable, in a dry and warm
sort of way, and there are no ducts for over-wrought ladies to fall out of.

If any of you would like for me to add a candle for you to the alcove, let me know, and I’ll
swipe….er, borrow some from the Minbari the next time a transport comes down.

Visitors to the Meditation Center are welcome, but PLEASE, there are no routes to the
Chief’s quarters, no ducts, and there’s no chocolate or pizza to be had. (See, we really
*are* serious about meditation and research.) Bring your own pillow, we’re a bit short on
furniture at the moment.

While it’s a sacrifice to be off-station, I think we are on the trail of a finding of MAJOR
historical and religious significance…more to come.

Regards from Epsilon 3, with Boogie Blessings,

Hello Maggie,

Welcome to the end of the line! Grab a space suit and join us outside. I don’t know who
is keeping track of numbers but some one is…hopefully grey 17 will be finished soon and
we can move inside. Even with these nice insulated suits it gets cold out here…

I will give you a dozen of those dangerous dolls…in the interests of moving the line. I am
still keeping a stash back just in case the Vorlons find out they have been paying the bills. I
never knew how angry a Vorlon could get…until those two Koshes or whatever got into
fight not too long ago. What a display…some of the space suit bunch got thrown around
but no one was seriously injured—thank goodness.

WARNING to WaywardFlf: If TheLadyT decides to visit the meditation area on Epsilon
do not show her a picture of the G-mon! Your boogie buckets might end up as drool
buckets!heheheheh
The great Vorlon god Boogie might be offended!

I am planning on visiting your meditation center soon. MedLab has been so busy with the
inhalation injuries from the dust from construction of the shrine. People never seem to
think a warning means them! That Harve guy from ISN, for instance was in MedLab3 for
2 days. Drove everybody absofragginlutly nuts!. Now we are seeing some of the
pac’ma’ra who have visited the Shrine of our Beloved G-mon and became nauseated from
the “sweet smelling” incense. Trust me, you do NOT want to be around a nauseated
pac’ma’ra!

In fact I think I will shuttle on over now. I’ll bring my own pillow. And, er…I promised
Draal that I would bring him some rum truffles. I feel calmer already.

Posted on: America Online

SECURITY ALERT:

It has come to the attention of Security that someone is selling black market dolls
in an out of the way corner of DownBelow. It has also been reported that the Chief
has decided to personally investigate this to see if these dolls represent a threat to
station security.
With the looming problems of the incoming refugees, Zack has requested that anyone
with a Security background report to him for asignment to assist the Chief in this
investigation.
It is rumored that the woman selling the dolls is doing it with a glaring disregard of all
station
licensing and safety regulations.
Zack states that it worries him that she seems to be inviting investigation. He fears that
it might be a trap or worse. With the Chief’s recent record he feels that it might not be wise
for him to go anywhere without an escort.
Zack further states that he assures any volunteers, that they will not lose their place in
the line. He also wonders if someone could give him a detailed explination of the purpose
and
goals of the line. Then maybe he could assist the ladies in some small way during their
wait.

IN OTHER MATTERS OF SECURITY’S INTEREST:

There have been complaints to the fire marshal about the danger of the line congesting
the exiting of the various areas of the station that it goes through. This along with the
recent
near misses outside the station have caused the Captain to become concerned.
In a recent meeting the Captain has said that he may have to become personally involved
in moving the line if it does not begin to move soon. While Ambassador Delenn was heard
to argue that he should not become involved in the affairs of the Chief, Sheridan was heard
to say to Lorien that if he only had 20 years he might as well enjoy himself.
Later it was learned that Mr. Lennier was seen with Ambassador Delenn near the storage
site for the thermonuclear devices. Mr. Lennier was heard to say that he knew how to clear
the corridors. At which time Ambassador Delenn’s response was to say that Mimbari do
not believe in sharing.
WARNING WARNING WARNING

Anyone seeing any unattended packages near any part of the line are asked to notify
Security
immediately. Please note the species and description of the persons leaving the package.
The
Security staff asks that no member of the line or their visitors accept any packages from
anyone
that they do not personally know.

Wow! The Line is getting SOOOOOO long! I can’t believe the number of posts in this file.
Is JMS aware of this? Can’t our beloved G-mon have a date this season? – actually, I’d
settle just to get his head back to normal.

Regarding the line, I am just clarifying that I am the Keeper of the Last Place in Line. I am
Last and ever after First that way.

Password: “Garibaldi or bust!”

The mini-minbari had a snow day today (toboganning was outstanding!) and so did I, so I
was able to get this done FINALLY.Thank you all for sending me ideas. This is our first
group project song..
(This goes to “Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music)

A Duck on his headboard, a bike on the station,
Moves that can fill us with joy and elation,
A brown suede fedora or wrapped in Saran’
These are some views of our favorite man!

Whimsical passwords and questions to ponder,
“Zippers” and “socks” cause our Chief to “just wonder”,
“Aw, nuts” will pop out when things go awry,
These are some quips from our favorite guy!

With the psi cops,
Fighting shadows,
Cruising down below,
Our Chief Garibaldi is there with a grin
And that’s why we love him so!

Translating Narn from the book of G’Quon,
Checked out in medlab, without his shirt on,
Blue eyes that twinkle or melt you away,
I’ll wait in this Line for a year and a day!

So he’s balding
So he’s older
So he’s gained some weight
We simply adore him, it’s easy to see
That our Mr. G. is great!

Have fun!
BTW, the posts have been wicked funny lately.
Also, I couldn’t get to the Church of Joe. Is there some trick I don’t know?

hmmm have these “rat-dogs” been trained for sniffing explosives??? how do they react to

training area) ….. now … I need to clear this up (gina pulls pad and stylus out of cammie
pocket ….) do you need a place in line?? or are you *just* joining the guardians???

If you are joining the line only — take a number and go to the park for proccessing — they
will issue you a spacesuit, a packet of takeout menu’s, you emergency beacon and some
instructions for line conduct. Grey 17 is in the final stages., I just saw Wrngtl and the
Lady T go down for a final walk through of the spaces (checked em out last shift —
SWEEEEEETTTTTT!!!!), so you may have to linger in the park for a few hours until we
finish shifting the line.

which brings me to a general announcement ….**** LADIES … May I have your
attention ??? LADIES, May I have your at… LADIES, * awwww nuts … (Gina grabs
megaphone and turns volume ALL the way up) …
************** LADIES MAY I HAVE YOUR
ATTENTION???**************

Ahem, thank you. Well you have all been very patient with us and endured many a
hardship in the line…. {aside to number 3 …yes I know it hasn’t moved for a while} ….I
am happy to FINALLY announce the completion of the Remodeling of GREY 17. In the
next few hours and days we will be shifting the line, section by section to the new spaces.
First off I would like to assure everyone that we have accurate records on data crystals of
everyone’s place in line { aside to Maria … yes even those at the COJ and on epsilon for
meds … I mean meditation} … We will be shifting sections in order of precedence based
on hazards to navigation, fire exit blockage, safety zones { aside to Kathleen … Yes dear ,
that means you, just hold on to the rope and you won’t fall into the hole …. under my
breath … IF I ever get my hands on that fool with the cutting torch…} and then proceding
through the more populated corridors.

Now — everyone will be able to enjoy the amenities of the new area. The buffet and
dining area is all ready to go and the restaurants have hired additional staff to gear up just
for you! The bowling alley needs another few days to have the lanes fully seasoned.. .. the
gym is ready to go and all the new equipment is in place, the bunks have been installed for
ease of the commuter.

I want to assure everyone that you will retain you place in line — even if you leave
temporarily. The only restriction on leaving the line is you MUST notify one of the
guardians or proctors prior so the records can be annotated….. Oh yeah, the proctors are
mechanicals for relaying information, not only will the relay to the quardians, but can be
used like regular Babcom stations -0- however, these are MOBILE.
I will be getting back to you soon with details ….so everyone start planning to gather up
your parcels and other belongings and remember ….

Gina is avidly packing away swords, sabers, rifles, sniper scopes, ppg’s, semtex and body
armor, and turns around to discover a black bird cage….
“now how in the hell did this come into my possession?”
Gina picks up the cage and glances inside — returning her gaze are two parakeets, a swing,
a mirror, bird charcoal, bird gravel , bird seed, bird litter and an empty toilet paper roll.
“AW NUTS!!! I was hoping that was only a dream!!”
The bossy white bird (named “Ivanova” for now), cocks her head to one side, glares at
Gina and chirps “peep, carrip cheep charrip. CHIRRREEEEEP” and fluffs her wings,
stalks regally to the other end of the perch and flips her tail at Gina.
“definately telling me I’m doing something wrong, huh??”
The other bird (named “Marcus” for now), quieter, darker in coloring and more
mysterious, just cants his head to one side and slides over to Ivanova and attempts to
cuddle. Ivanova wants nothing to do with it…. and moves to the swing.

This is not pretty folks … I buy two birds and they get named after the show???

And the scary part was they had this grey parrot I really wanted, it kept tucking it’s wings

INCOMING MESSAGE FROM EPSILON 3:
Greetings fellow G-monites! I am still visiting the Meditation area created by Wayward.
She has done a VERY good job. Rumor has it that Grey 17 has been completed and
Sheridan98 is overseeing THE MOVE. Someone save me a bunk, Please? I may be
staying down here a bit longer. I told Dr.Franklin that I was studing Draal’s adaptation to
The Machine. Actually, Draal is quite a humorous fellow. He absofragginlutly loves
Mongoose’s Top 10 Lists. He also has become quite addicted to chocolate. That reminds
me, Draal has ask that he wants rum and brandy truffles to be sent down with the next
shuttle. The credits are to come out of his Emergency Preparedness Budget. They help
him to think more clearly;) I never knew Mimbari had SUCH a sense of humor!

Zathrus has some brothers down here. One of them is named Mathrus. He is very
talkitive. He drives Draal nuts. Mathrus wants to meet Mongoose. Mathrus said “Mathrus
want to meet Mongoose. Mathrus want to meet girl with nice tail. Mathrus never have nice
tail.” I DO NOT know what he meant by that exactly. Someone tell Mongoose when she
comes down off the scaffolding, OK?

I guess I should sign off. Draal sent word it’s time to finish our Monopoly Game.

From: TheLadyT
Posted on: America Online

(I realize this may be cruel–and could destroy my recent “sainting”–but I think I’ve figured
out how to get The Great Maker to change his mind.)

Picture this: Opening day of MegaCon97.

An unsuspecting JMS strolls down the hallway toward his next panel. As he approaches
the panel room he notices a small group standing outside the doorway. Immediately he
assumes these must be people waiting to get inside. As he closes in, the group notices him
and smile in welcome. He vaguely notices a humming the closer he gets. Suddenly he is
stopped in his tracks–the group has not only blocked the door to his panel session, they’ve
surrounded him. The humming gets louder until, much to his dismay, he hears:

Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi
Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi

Oh how our G-mon needs to have romance
Oh Straczynski, oh Straczynski, please listen to me
Yes, season four is when he needs romance
Oh Straczynski, oh Straczynski, oh Straczynski shame on thee

Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi
Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi

And it continues to repeat. The noise is deafening–and out of tune. The Great Maker
holds his ears and wonders if he can still remember how to pray. On and on this goes until
finally, in tears, The Great Maker falls to his knees crying, “Alright, alright. I’ll do it. Just
please, stop that infernal chorus!”

The singing stops. With loving kindness, the group gently help Our Hero to his feet, dust
off his trowsers, gently wipe his tears, give him water to drink, and hand him a kerchief
for him to blow his nose. When Our Hero is totally composed, a member of the group
opens the door for him to enter. Suddenly the group breaks out in the *real* Haleluiah
chorus–on key, in perfect pitch and harmony–the crowded room greets The Great Maker
with applause. All is well, indeed!

Just a thought…..(teehee)

together and help out when we can and however we can. My source said she couldn’t
understand what all the fuss was about but to each her own. maybe the Spacesuits will feel
a little warmer with some nice, hot coffee.

now, if someone could find some cookies or better yet, biscotti, to go with the coffee……

A bed (better than sleeping zero grav in a space suit). Warmth (cold doesn’t even begin to

Ah, how the Lady doth love her new status….

I’ve been a saint for less than two days and a dear friend has already asked that I bless her
cats. Of course I did. Annnd, wonder of wonders, as I delivered the blessing I felt the
power of the Great JMS coursing through me. WOW–what a rush. The knowledge that
*I* am now one of the chosen….the awesome responsibility of dispensing His blessings.
And now I’m here before you to announce that any and all may approach me to receive The
Great Maker’s blessings.

[Wrngtl and Sheridan98 approach the Lady.]

“Ah, beloved Guardian-First and Guardian-Second. Have you come to receive The Great
Maker’s blessing?”

The two look at one another, Sheridan98 replies, “Not exactly.”

“No matter. Simply kneel before me and I’ll give you His blessing anyway.”

The two again share a look. Sheridan98 replies, “I don’t think so….”

“Very well,” the Lady smiles sweetly and draws her sword, “I’ll just give it to you
standing.”

Sheridan98 contemplates rushing the Lady, knowing her skills with a sword (or lack
thereof), yet Wrngtl simply says, “Drop it.”

The Lady drops her sword, frozen by the Guardian-First’s voice, “Wha-ha….I have … to
… give you … His … blessing….”

The two guardians gently take the Lady’s arms and lead her to a chair, “Not today, dearie,”
Sheridan98 replies. She turns to HROBIN913, “Holly. Get over here. We need the
Lady’s oxy level checked.”

“Oxy … level?” ask the Lady, still quaking from hearing Wrngtl’s voice.

“Yeah. And you better hope it’s *real* low. You’re in a heap o’ trouble right now–what
with threatening JMS last night, this downright wierd behavior today, *plus* the
disappearance of a certain ISN reporter. Did you know that when he left Medlab he went
looking for you? No one’s seen him since!”

“Harvey Brenmar?” The Lady’s voice was slowly returning. “Did you check Epsilon3?”

“Oxy level is definitely low, Gina,” HROBIN913 says, “LadyT, you really need to spend
more time out of the Shrine. What’s more, that incense you’ve been burning has been
giving you hallucinations!” She prepares an injection.

“Hrumph!” says Sheridan 98. “Delusions of grandeur, I’d say! I’ve seen you wierd-out
before, LadyT, but this is a bit much. Blessings of The Great Maker? Definitely
delusional!”

“Delusional! But I’m the Patron Saint….” The Lady succumbs to HROBIN913’s
injection. “…of … G-mon … oh Michael….”

“Well, she’s finally having that G-mon dream she’s always wanted.”

Sheridan98 shakes her head, “She’ll never remember it. She never remembers her
dreams.”

The G-Monkee, cursing the slip of his tongue that temporarily cost him his
Acme Products access, acknowledges that he can still go retail. A new plan
forms; a plan as brilliant as it is simple! “So, the Ladies of the Line like
men in Saran Wrap, eh?”

He loads a fresh roll of cellophane onto the paper towell roller and, pinning
the free end to his plaid, flannel boxers, starts to spin around; spooling
the plastic wrap off of the roller onto himself. “So they like a man in
Saran Wrap, eh? Well now they’ll find me irresistable!”, he chortles.

Finally, the roll is gone, and the G-Monkee is covered shoulder to ankles in
tightly wrapped cellophane. “Now, off to Grey Sector, and DESTINY!!!”

MedLab 0700: Dr.Franklin is sitting at his desk with a concerned expression. He is
looking over the chart of Lady T. “Who was the admitting physician of record on this
patient?”

“Err…I was, sir. Is there a problem? She was hypoxic from being exposed to a
combination of paint fumes and incense. It is still uncertian exactly what agent was present
to cause such an over reaction to the paint fumes. It was not intentional on her part, sir. Of
that I am certian. I gave her some suplemental O2 and some sedation. She was quite
agitated when Gina and Wrngtl brought her in. After some Thorazine, she quieted right
down. She is quite herself at present.”(except for that strange, secret type smile)

Dr.Franklin stood up, looked me straight in the face and said “I examined your patient this
morning, She is delusional and not oriented to time or space. She gave her occupation as
‘saint’ and said she was the leader of the Battle of the Line. This is normal?”

“Well….surely you heard about the navigation hazard that was ocurring because of the line
of space suited females winding out of the air locks? He nods. This line ends at the door
of our beloved G-mon..I mean Mr. Garibaldi’s quarters. The Lady T here is the leader off
THIS Battle of the Line. As to the sainthood…let’s say that she belongs to one of the
culturally diverse groups on station. They call themselves G-monites. They just opened a
shrine last week. Remember all those particulate inhalation injuries over the past weeks?
BTW that reporter we had in here as a patient is missing. Due to the oxygen deprivation
she was suffering from, the Lady T was trying to ‘bless’ everything and everyone. She
just made the mistake of trying to use a sword.

The Lady T is fine sir, really! She will be ready for discharge this evening. The incense in
question has been replaced. Mr.Garibaldi(:::sigh:::)himself came in to see her this
morning.(THAT’S what the smile was!)He was quite satisfied with her state of mind.

“Holly, you seem to know quite a bit about this group.” He furrowed his brows.”I guess
that would make you the expert in this area. Discharge this evening then.”

“Yes, sir. BTW, is it time for Mr.Garibald’s next check up? I know you have been
watching him closely.” Franklin nods. “I would be happy(ecstatic, delighted)to take a
portible MediKit and check him out, I mean give him a check up in his quarters. He really
hates coming here now.” I hold my breath….Franklin nods. “Yessss! I mean yes, I will
be haappy to.”

“Dr.Franklin? Would you call Mr.Garibaldi and let him know I will be over after his
regular shift. He might take the news of another exam better from you. I know you guys
are good friends.” Franklin nods.

The rest of my shift drifted by quickly. I was the one with the strange smile! It was time to
go. I had changed clothes and had my barely there black dress under my Medlab smock.
Now if I can carry the MediKit, my gym bag and the bag containing a pasta dish from
Mr.Leo’s while wearing my black heels and not fall down or otherwise draw attention to
myself……

“Holly? Heels are not part of our uniform.”At least Franklin was smiling.

“I have a date later. Have to multi-task!”:)

I make my way to our beloved G-mon’s quarters. Wrngtl is at her post. “He’s expecting
you.” She glances at all I am caring.

“You know how thorough Dr.Franklin is. I needed a lot of equipment.”

I ring the chime and am welcomed in. The ever vigilant Chief notices the heels but says
nothing. Was I being to brazen? I give the G-mon his examination. I am a medical
professional and conducted my self as such. REALLY!

“Well?” He asks.

“I think you are stressed out and over worked. How long has it been since you had a home
cooked meal?” He shruggs his shoulders. “I went to the market and was going to cook at
home but I might as well do it here for you. Let me go change into something more
comfortable.” I go to the bathroom. I can’t do this…..it’s not fair to the other
Ladies….off comes the barely there black dress…….
….. and on goes my gym sweats with Daffy on the shirt. I toss the heels in the gym bag.
Oh well…my concious always wins out in the end. I go back into the main room. My
beloved G-mon smiles when he sees Daffy.

“Ah!! A woman after my own heart!” IF HE ONLY KNEW!!!!!!!! Zack was right when

The top five signs Mr. Garibaldi has watched Fargo one time too many:

Number Five: When dining next to Drazi in the Zocolo, was seen to offer him night
crawlers for dessert.

Number Four: In a debate on spacing convicted murderers, suddenly started musing on the
merits of an old-fashioned machine called the “chipper-shredder.”

Number Three: Actually accepts a description of a suspect as “Just really strange looking.”

Number Two: Enters his poster of Daffy Duck in a competition for new Centauri stamp line
“Creatures of the Galaxy” as Really Wildlife of Earth.

Number One: During an interrogation with a suspect was heard to say, “Now there’s no
reason to get snippy with me. I’m just doing my job here, right?”

I can’t believe it! I’m out of the loop for about a month and we get a new folder ( gotta
download all the stuff I missed in G#2) and it took me over two hours to get caught up on
all of the postings in this folder alone! Wow! I wish I had had more time to stay up with
everything… but I appreciate the concern about my unannounced absence (it was
unplanned too) and hopefully I won’t be gone that long ever again.

To Gina– hope you are feeling better, hubby says a raspy,husky voice is a real turn-on so
I’ve started practicing 😉

To LadyT–Congrats on the recent sainthood, too bad you don’t remember *the visit* : (
BTW- enter me in the list as a fellow G-monite and second in command of the Ductwork
crowd and keeper of the gas/dust-masks, we wouldn’t want the ladies in the airducts to
suffer ill effects from pepper spray or common ventilation dust.

To anyone who has a picture of the G-mon to e-mail:
Please send it as soon as possible : )

To those who asked the question “whatever happened to Scalar?” here is the answer…
I got tied up writing semester exams, grading them, averaging grades, filling out the
required report cards, and then…. all @&** broke loose on the home front. My
Grandfather suffered 4 strokes and requested I go to Pensacola to see him and then
everyone got sick while I was there. I spent the 28th in Dallas waiting for another flight and
ended up landing in Mobile in fog thicker than pea soup and, after hitting the runway hard
enough to bend the landing gear, was bussed into Pensacola, Fl. (My back still hurts from
that landing) Then after a whirlwind stay I returned to Corpus Christi, Tx on New Year’s
Eve (don’t travel on this day if you can help it) to fast food and iced tea for my New Year’s
celebration. The 1st I planned to get online and send greetings but lost power for several
days and then got sick ( I had managed to stay healthy while out of town) and then back to
work. Whew, my year has started out with a bang.. how about yours? Needless to say I
start teaching night school next week and I will be posting probably only on Sat or Sun.
Planning for day and night for 6 different math subjects gets a little time consumming…
Anyone got any chocolate? I ate all of the Godiva Truffles hubby gave me for my 29th
Birthday (on 12/27) and I’m really having cravings for more chocolate. ( Especially since I
read all of the notes regarding chocolate in the line : ) )

To all: Happy Belated Holidays and Peace and Love to all of the G-monites of this
wonderful folder

Glad to be back!

Dear B5,

Please tell JMS that these are OUR stories and he can’t have them. Any duplication on his
part will be purely coincidental and all of us know this.

We’ve created these stories to keep us amused during the (ugh) endless re-runs and the
cold weather (thoughts of our Beloved Chief will keep anybody warm!) currently crossing
the US. Besides, I cna’t think of any actor who could play Monkey-man and do the
character justice.

Alas, I fear dear JMS takes this stuff very seriously (although I know you were just joking
when you said that). Please know that the issue B5 Online raised is a very serious one. I
would never want the G-mon-ites to be the reason JMS leaves AOL. However, I really
don’t think we have a problem, but to be on the safe side, let’s kill the Line Tales for a little

I just thought I’d check with you about a post Troy left in the Garibaldi#3

Could you please let me know what our boundaries are? I was under the
impression that as long as we stayed away from B5 stuff–which we do because
I hardly consider what we write as having much to do with B5–we’d be okay.
And when we do “stray over B5’s way” we pretty much keep in line with what
you’ve already established.

Are we getting too close to “story suggestions,” and are we risking losing
your presence on AOL?

Aw…

Have you all read my “bio”? Here tis. ;>

While a student at Iowa State University, Troy Rutter helped bring “Babylon 5″ to the
Internet by creating the first electronic mailing list dedicated to the series. Archives of this
mailing list contain valuable historical information on B5’s beginning in the online world,
and can be found at the Hyperion FTP site at ftp.hyperion.com.

This mailing list, at its peak, contained over 300 subscribers, all of which had to be added
and deleted manually by using the university’s ‘chlist’ access control group. After an
attempt at using Listserv on a VAX computer delayed intra-campus email 7 hours, Troy
and Jonathan Roy proposed and established the first newsgroup, alt.tv.babylon-5.

As the alt group grew to enormous proportions, Troy proposed a new rec group, which
was defeated before it went to vote. Months later, the call for discussion was once again
brought forth by another party and was passed. Troy also maintains the Character/Cast
Cross Reference page on The Lurker’s Guide and also on America Online.

Due to his involvement with “Babylon 5″ fandom on the internet since the beginning, Troy
currently works for Warner Bros. Online producing the Official Web Site and the online
area on America Online. (Keyword: Babylon 5) Since then, he has improved and
strengthened these areas with content and design suggestions that earned the web site the
1996 Digitial Hollywood Award for Best Science Fiction Site, beating out “The Dominion”
of the Sci-Fi Channel.

I am amazed that we could in any way be considered over the line (no pun intended)
concerning story ideas. One would have to get pretty far a field of the plot to have
considered anything we might have said here as real story ideas, after all this isn’t
a ST series where “any” idea is a better idea than some that they have come up with.

After all, at most B-5 has a year and a half of episodes left. JMS said himself that he
knows where he is, where he’s going and how he will get there. There has to be a way
to protect him and the show and not stifle our little board.

It seems such a damper that as more and more people are beginning to contribute to it
that we seem to have to pull back for fear of losing JMS from AOL.

Actually, I always believed that he only read his own folder to prevent any contamination.
Isn’t that why we copy relivent stuff to him there and from there to here?

I’m hoping that we will get an answer soon. We were really on a roll there and it would be
a shame if we had to go to E-mail and cc’ing each other to keep it going. The shame would
be that we wouldn’t have the ability to let the lurkers continue to share in the story.

But it is sort of a compliment that our little folder entries could constitute a story idea.
Who’d have thought?

Was at a convention recently where “Scott” told us that “they” told him he could no
longer appear on “Homeboys in Outer Space,” because of the fact that the Roddenbury
estate would have to be paid some amount…and apparently Paramount/Star Trek didn’t
want to. Apparently Paramount isn’t happy with the mega dollars that they all ready make
on their series and don’t want to share. Maybe they shouldn’t have shut down “The Next
Generation” so soon.

Of course, having watched some of the DS9 and especially Voyager episodes, I’m not sure
any one would *want* to claim to have written them.

Until then. I will continue to consider what may be happening on the line and putting them
in
a file in my computer until such time as we find out where “THE LINE” is on what we are

Unfortunately, as someone once said, “How can I stay behind the line if it keeps moving?”

Thanks K9– I was wondering what happened to the ‘Goose. I’m glad you posted that
note, the echoes in the ductwork were beginning to give me a headache <smile>

Caper- I loved it ! Great lyrics! and thanks for the welcome back– it is really great to be
among friends again.

Love and laughter,
Scalar

I know it is very cold throughout most of the nation and I just wanted to invite any of you
to my humble abode to share Homemade Potato Soup and fresh Homemade Sourdough
Bread (its coming out of the oven in about 10 minutes.) I also have hot chocolate, with
marsmallows, hot tea, reg and herbal, and coffee in different flavors……..

………….I also get a B5 re-run tonight, so c’mon over : }
Love
Scalar

PS- I think we need to figure out how to send some of this soup to Mongoose so she can
get better soon!
Any ideas?

Germ-free cyber-kiss from Mongoose who got in once today under own screen name,
and got bounced. Must have offended the Boogie-Mon.
Get thee to Garibaldi Folder # 4, but not too soon after dinner, dangerous levels of
amusement there!

Peace to you,
The Mongoose

I’m new to this folder, and CAN’T believe I’ve never looked in before!! What a great
group you have here!! I thought I was the biggest Garibaldi fan until I came here!!!! I
would love to know more about this “line” of yours and any group or club I can get
involved with.

I was very impressed with B5 Onlines credentials! I’ve taken this B5 area for granted and I
won’t ever do it again-I promise!! The reason I haven’t come here before is because I
don’t get the new B5 eps until Sat. night, and by that time it seems that everyone has talked
about the ep to death. AND-in the past I was spoiled when I came during the week because
I have to wait so long to see the new shows!!! (Even though I know they try their best not
to have that happen). Well, I’m here to stay!! Especially if someone can map out the
“rules” for me and let me know what all of the little sayings, etc., mean! I’d really
appreciate it!!!

I fell for Garibaldi from the get-go! He’s so loyal to his friends! He’s strong and caring at
the same time, too. Not to mention-he’s so darn cute!! <bg> I must say, though, I’ve
been worried about him since he returned to the station-I hope they didn’t do anything to
him!!!!

Please let me know what it takes to become a G-mon and even though I know I’d be in the
back of that line-I’d sure love to get in it. It’s good to know we aren’t alone!!!!

Thanks,
Missy

Subj: Solution to your story Prob

I might have a solution to your line-stroy problems. I belong to a club for a star on General
Hospital. They had similar legal problems with these clubs, so we can not use the official
General Hospital boards to post ANY messages at all. We use an area at Keyword: TV
Viewers, then to TV People, then we use a folder under her name in the Soap Opera
people section. But they have a section called Let’s Talk TV Stars A-F that we could put
Jerry Doyle’s name under. Bruce Boxleitner already has a folder there!!! We could use
this area for the line and all stories that JMS might not be able to read.

I know it’s hard to go to two places, but it has a heart on the area to put it in your favorite
places! And it’s better than nothing at all!!! Just a thought! I’m going to go and try to
make a folder for him now. If any of you are interested in doing this let me know!

Your new friend,
Missy
