Vocab 101

Funny thing about foreign languages is that they have words for specific things that don't exist in english. This is a word that is becoming more important in American life.

SEIGNEUR-TERRASSE - Someone who spends time, but not money, at a café.

Ah, Kid Various remembers the years with Mr. Scriblerus and Mr. Surly spent pursuing careers as seigneur-terrasses at Cafe Newz in Hub City.

In fact, there were a whole lot of seigneur-terrasses there, king among them being Dope, who once asked for water "not in a bottle - but from the tap..."

No wonder Cafe Newz burned down, probably for the insurance money.

Ah, Cafe Newz, we sh*t on thee

and wipe our asses with the chart...

thanks for the information on the book. i think i'll pick it up when it gets printed.

ahhhh....i remember the Cafe well. although a former roommate of mine, who worked as waitress there, told me that it was actually a cover-up for selling heroin. is there a word for that?
