Well, I'll be there dressed as Moose Molloy and clutching a copy of Celebrity Bee-keeper.

Anyone who's coming tonight (and it would be great to meet the faces behind the posts)...

I'll be there at 8pm (or earlier if there's no food in the house - in which case I'll have a steak and kidney pudding shaped tummy and will be looking sheepishly at the huge mound of mash that I couldn't manage to eat).

I'll have a copy of the FT (For no reason other than that I just love the idea. No offence to SE1 - the paper - but somehow the FT seems to me to be the only paper to use when arranging secret-squirrel-type meetings), but I will probably be reading the Cheltenham Festival magazine (horses, not literature).

Oh, and I'll be clean shaven.

[Sarah - why did you assume Jan and I were the same person? So far, I've been accused of being mapmaker and Jan. Is it a common thing for people to have an alter ego? I can assure you - apart from a brief spell as carpmaker - I find it hard enough being myself.]

...there's plenty more c**** in the cup.

OK, the FT it is.

You can have something else if you like Alan. I'm only saying the FT because it fits with my own daft ideas of secret spy meetings and because I can see one from my desk that I should be able to appropriate on the way home.

See you later.

Copy of Southwark Carers?....Ivanhoe I have always wanted a alter ego..I have a dopple ganger already I think - as I have been seen paralytic on the floor of many pubs apparently...lmao..really will try to lumber you young folks with my prescence...

Great disappointment. Ivanhoe has neither horns, fangs, nor was there any other visible mark of the beast on forehead or right hand.
[A hoof inspection could not be completed in the confined space]

On the other hand, Mrs I's luxuriant handlebar moustache excited loud shouts of approbation from the assembled party of revellers.

The cider flowed copiously, the Royal Oak does a damn fine steak and kidney pudding, and it was a pleasure to catch up with Sarah O'C and meet The Unladylike Ms. Jo, alan day et al.

Yes, just got back, very enjoyable evening - except for Mrs. I's exceptionally bushy beard constantly getting dipped in my cider. Very easy to recognise everybody in the end, due to innovative use of merkins - well done! Thankyou all for making me laugh so much.

Great evening, but the cider is definintely off. (What other reason could there be for my head feeling so disconnected this morning?)

Well met everyone. It was worth giving away the secret that I don't eat children to meet such a nice bunch of people. Hope you all feel a bit better than I do this morning.

Never mind the ciderhead, I'm wearing the morning-after-the-night-before-head today. An excellent evening, and next time I shall certainly be trying one of those fabulous looking steak and kidney puddings. Maybe Mrs. I could spare a few clippings from her luxurious full set, so as to enable us to fashion merkins?
