I'm fine without a bag Alan. I was just a bit worried about seeing (not meeting, just seeing) mapmaker at one time because someone suggested that we were the same person and I wanted to avoid the consequences of seeing my doppelganger.
I'll be there as me. 30's. Short dark hair. Drinking cider. Will carry rolled up copy of FT, or adopt other identifying tactic, as instructed.
[Mrs I very keen to join us later, but close friends' new baby might interfere. I'm allergic to babies, and so will make do with wetting its head from a distance with cider]
I'd like to come along tomorrow, if I may - I fancy having my tastebuds educated. Never made it to Simon the Tanner the other day. In absence of paper bags, could you specify an identifying tactic please, Ivan or Alan? Is it to be FT or what? Rolled up 'inSE1' would be more locally patriotic.
I'd always assumed Ivanhoe and Jan were one and the same........
Do they make merkins for chins? Or do you have to adapt. Actually - and a point not covered in Jan's record breaking thread - are merkins unisex, do they come in different sizes and is the label at the back? Anyway will look for the man with the FT......and a chin wig. Or was that the Mrs.
Alas poor Ivanhoe!..lmao...any resemblance between Ivanhoe and my old self is purely coincidental....unless he too weighs seventeen stone, walks with the aid of a cane and has dodgey dyed red hair ( depending how the light hits it...) .may try to finish work early, visit Don and amble down to the Oak, just to vindicate poor Ivanhoe!
Sarah your right I had not thought of the unisex aspect...interesting thought, I suppose the male ego being what it is, it would have to enhance their ' finer ' features.. the smaller the appendage the smaller and smoother the surrounding merkin..?
