Doff your top hats, lean on your canes, 'tis a Victorian Christmas for the BESH. Baste those turkeys in Victoria & Albert style, and maintain a stiff upper lip when you fill in the BESHtionnaire to see if you are cynical stoic enough to win a Baybee.

Love the new fred

Are we going to fill this one up?

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Tue 15-Jan-13 11:01:06

New fred - here. I realise it's a bit premature, but I have to go away for a couple of days in the next hour or so. Hopefully it's up and away by the time I get back.

Poor euro. There will be another little blue kitten at some point if you want one, and you are right that if you are in a bit of a state it is probably more sensible to wait. Not least because you might need the flexibility to go on more luxury holidays of consolation.

An even fiver says you now go totally mental and buy a mongrelly little tabby off gumtree on the way home from work wink

Disclaimer: I don't actually know what "an even fiver" means, but someone said it in a Jilly Cooper novel, so it must mean something.

Morning hags.

Well the kitten went to another home. The breeder just emailed me. I'm a bit sad, but we just couldn't make up our minds. TBH I'm such a hormonal mess at the moment, I can't decide between tea and coffee so deciding to commit to up to 20 years of cat ownership this week was a big ask. I'm not sure what is going on but since the weekend I have had diabolical PMT. I am grumpy as hell and just feel awash with hormones. I used to get PMT like this a few years age, but it had eased off. Meh. And now I want to cry about the missed kitty.

Paul and Storm are hilarious - I challenge anyone not to laugh at the seamen song grin

FriendofDorothy Tue 15-Jan-13 09:19:03

The Mister is a big Jonathan Coulton fan. I am a huge Paul and Storm fan. We went to see them in London lady year at the Union Chapel in London. AmAzing. My inner geek got a good airing that day!

SinkyMalinks Tue 15-Jan-13 08:43:02

Oh, forgot before - all this b**y d**t talk up fred. In my head I was trying to work out what it meant. Bloody dick/twat... ? (well, it was midst rude word chatter)

Oh no. Baby dust.

Let's never speak this again.

evilgiraffe Tue 15-Jan-13 07:45:12

Dot, Jonathan Coulton is just great, isn't he? We saw him play in Shepherds Bush a couple of years ago, great stuff.

Well done Sinks!

SinkyMalinks Tue 15-Jan-13 07:43:10

<Adjusts cravat>

You know, despite best intentions in the first page or two, we never stick to feem very well...

<dusts down lapel of velvet smoking jacket>

Northey Tue 15-Jan-13 07:33:32

Blimey, we're at 966 already. So is it hard boiled eggs and so on for a Famous Five extravaganza next? Who's doing it? rie, I think it was your idea, wasn't it?

Northey Tue 15-Jan-13 07:31:20

Congratulations, clever sinky!

I am crampy today. God knows why. CD18 so possibly ovulation. Though in that case what on earth was the spotting on CD13? <gives up caring>

FrankellyMyDearIDontGiveADamn Tue 15-Jan-13 07:05:18

Well done Sinky, take your time to think things through but do what is best for you.

FriendofDorothy Mon 14-Jan-13 23:10:01

Heh evilgiraffe you linked to a video by ate Mister's all time favourite artist. Great ding though!

SinkyMalinks Mon 14-Jan-13 22:56:53

Ladies, I go out for an evening, and I come back to chat of moist, Pi-anus (or some similar town in Cornwall) and draff outing herself and the author of the next 50 shades... (will the BESH get a cut?)

For those not on 't'other place, I got the job! Just got to sort out the notice etc.

But this does place a few issues in the place of TTC. This will require some thought...

evilgiraffe Mon 14-Jan-13 21:45:45

Also I can't help but have a soft spot for him because he's so clearly not quite all there, poor love.

evilgiraffe Mon 14-Jan-13 21:37:54

I quite liked Jack Reacher - thought they did well with what they had. But then, I've not read the books so no preconceptions other than knowing he should have been twice the size.

Tom Cruise has yet to improve on Interview With The Vampire. Minority Report was okay though, and he proved that he has a sense of humour with Tropic Thunder - the credits were amazing.

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Mon 14-Jan-13 21:37:51

Oh alright, I'll give you Top Gun. All those oiled, bronzed biceps and white towels...

TWinklyLittleStar Mon 14-Jan-13 21:25:01

Tom Thumb is at the top of my Hollywood shitlist at the moment, for what he did to Jack Reacher. Shameful.

Anyway I am going to bed. HWCA is at work until midnight so precious little chance of a shag again tonight, no baybee win for me this month sad

FrankellyMyDearIDontGiveADamn Mon 14-Jan-13 21:21:57

Top Gun is the gayest non-porn film in history - fact! HWHNN told me I had ruined the film for him by pointing out all the homoerotic stuff grin

evilgiraffe Mon 14-Jan-13 21:21:55

Babylon 5 though, really?! And here I thought Trek was the height of geekiness! grin

evilgiraffe Mon 14-Jan-13 21:20:25

I don't believe for a minute that Tom Cruise isn't gay - he just isn't that good an actor...

Twink, you're welcome to say hello, we try to translate a bit for newbies! You lot were massively intimidating at first, but look at me now corrupting you all grin

Last time we watched LOTR (the last one) with friends we were all making gay comments, including adlibbing lines, such as "er, just go round again, guys" to the eagles when they get rescued, as clearly Frodo and Sam were a little busy at that point...

EuroShagmore Mon 14-Jan-13 21:15:08

LOTR is nowhere near as gay as Top Gun. I watched it again recently after a gap of several years. It is sooooooooooo homoerotic. Particularly the locker room scene. If there wasn't an orgy of bumming after filming that, I would eat my own hat.

Northey Mon 14-Jan-13 21:14:34

Oh don't, rierie. AMNH spends half his life quoting from LOTR and gets very cross if I make rude comments about Frodo's ring and the Battle of Conkers Helms Deep.
