Welcome, everybody.

Happy Friday.

Isn't it The Bluestocking?

Felascloak Fri 09-Sep-16 12:33:20

Yo! How was the dim sum? Why do we have no name? So many questions! grin

JacquettaWoodville Fri 09-Sep-16 13:03:22

I've BOOMed through the desert on a goat with no name...

Xenophile Fri 09-Sep-16 13:15:38

We'll always have the goat!

erinaceus Fri 09-Sep-16 17:47:00

There exists is a pub with no name. There are several, if you Google.

It is a joke, in reference to my need for the pub to exist, and the lack of time that there was to search back through the archives at the time that the thread was started. Elsewhere, I refer to it as "the pub in Feminism Chat", or "in FWR" if I feel the need to prove some kind of point, not entirely sure what point that is, the one about how long I lurked around here I suppose.

Did I get the Roman numerals right? That was one of my primary concerns, at the time of the creation of the thread.

Dim sum were just what I needed. Thank you Felas for asking.

Where's that goat? Jaquetta are you still BOOMing through the desert on it?

JacquettaWoodville Fri 09-Sep-16 18:21:04

We keep the goat to butt MRAs. And to make goat's cheese for our fancy sandwiches.

Erin, your pub, your move. What decor are we having this time, landlady?

erinaceus Fri 09-Sep-16 19:41:08

Oh crap, did I make myself the landlady? Is there a buck I can pass? I lack a visual eye. Maybe we should start a Bluestocking Pinterest.

In the pub that I used to imagine when I was a teenager, the defining features were comfy sofas and Gin and Tonics for ninety-nine p. So we could start there, I suppose.

Am about to go into a gig. You guys carry on with the decorating. And don't forget to feed the goat.

JacquettaWoodville Fri 09-Sep-16 19:44:28

grin

You got the numerals right, anyway.

As we are swinging into autumn, shall we go for the dark wood panelling and massive melty candle tavernesque look again?

Felascloak Fri 09-Sep-16 21:49:38

Yes Erin!! I like it. Can we have 10p a pint night too?

erinaceus Fri 09-Sep-16 22:00:34

Yes. I like dark wood paneling. 10p a pint puts you about a decade older than I am. The question is, do we consider stocking WKD?

Felascloak Fri 09-Sep-16 22:04:03

Oh no sad I thought we were similar. I'm 40. 10p a pint is special offer.
I'm in the horrors tonight and feeling anxious that I've annoyed everyone on the board by being either argumentative, stating the obvious or just being a dick. Its harsh because i love the posters on here but the lack of real life element makes me paranoid sad
Think I need a double gin.

sentia Fri 09-Sep-16 22:07:00

Can I join you? I've missed quite a few pubs, it's been a while between drinks!

SenecaFalls Fri 09-Sep-16 22:14:53

The goat is for goady fuckers aka goaty fuckers.

erinaceus Fri 09-Sep-16 22:51:03

I vote no to WKD, no Smirnoff Ice or Bacardi Breezers either, yes to the 21st century overpriced equivalent of J2O, those fancy crisps that come in pseudo-Kettle Chips packaging, lime and soda and shandy.

Snakebite, though? I secretly find it quite drinkable but feel as if that is something I am probably not supposed to admit.

Welcome senita. Please, have a seat. Do you like comfy sofas? Or do you have another seating preference?

Felascloak Fri 09-Sep-16 22:57:14

Snakebite is very 90s. Are you sure we aren't the same age? grin
How about some smirnoff ice?

JacquettaWoodville Fri 09-Sep-16 22:59:12

Snakebite and black. Blast from the past!

Myownperson Fri 09-Sep-16 23:17:04

Cider and black for me. Also 40!

I remember 50/50 nights as a student. 50p a shot or 50p a pint.

If you are going 90s with your vibe I'm not sure about posh crisps though.

erinaceus Sat 10-Sep-16 00:41:30

Smirnoff Ice and Barcardi Breezers are not part of the picture. Jack Daniels and coke is permitted. What do you remember a bottle of wine costing? In this pub, we permit the drinking of cheap wine out of mugs, only for the sake of nostalgia and not because we believe ourselves to be sophisticated. Or, do as you will, just do not forget to do the washing up.

erinaceus Sat 10-Sep-16 00:42:53

What snacks are more nineties? You are right. Maybe this is before the era of posh crisps. I do not remember eating anything at all, except for fish and chips at a friend's house before we went out on the town.

ErrolTheDragon Sat 10-Sep-16 00:59:15

When I was a teenager I remember a bottle of wine in france costing 45p. Rough but less likely to give you the trots than the water. Much more back in the UK.

That wasn't the 90s though ... My era, nice girls drank cinzano and lemonade. 70s alcopops really.

Are we allowed to bring our dogs in? Mine would give the goat a wide berth.

erinaceus Sat 10-Sep-16 04:05:03

I like dogs, an I appear to be the landlady. So yes, this is a dog-friendly pub. It has a garden with a bouncy castle in it. (True story, I used to go to one of those, before I was a teenager, a pub with its own bouncy castle in the back garden. Super cook.)

Please discourage the dog from going on the bouncy castle. The goat is not allowed, on it and it might get jealous. Then it's milk might turn bitter and the sandwiches would be ruined.

What is the dog like? Aside from goat-avoidant.

Myownperson Sat 10-Sep-16 04:56:39

I cannot remember having snacks back then and posh crisps are good.

How was the gig?

erinaceus Sat 10-Sep-16 06:41:34

Let us permit the inauthentic authentic posh crisps, then.

Thanks for asking. Gig was emotional. It reminded me of people and places. I cried a bit. Also, awesome. I love live concerts, and live sport as well.

A bit over a year ago, I decided I was just going to go gigs on my own, instead of always looking to find someone to come with me. Sometimes I get last-minute single tickets cheaply on SeatWave or ViaGoGo. I recommend this approach, if it appeals to you at all.

I am one of those people who goes to the cinema or out for a meal on my own and does not think anything of it, though. I remember being surprised when I learned that there are people who consider it unusual to do that.

I'm in the horrors tonight and feeling anxious that I've annoyed everyone on the board by being either argumentative, stating the obvious or just being a dick.

Not possible flowers

Do we do morning coffees here?
