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.]
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.
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...
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.
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?
