But have you fed the goat Buffy?

PuffinsAreFicticious Sat 01-Nov-14 16:48:54

I'll feed the goat. Then I'll sit very quietly in a corner and nurse a nice soothing hot chocolate.

Hello - not really feeling up for alcohol at the moment. Can I have a hot chocolate too please - with cream and marshmallows.

BriarRainbowshimmer Sat 01-Nov-14 17:42:14

Mmm a hot chocolate with cream too please.

Hot chocolate for me, too; we are having our first truly cold day here in sunny Florida.

Checking in.

All the booze for me please, horrible day.

UnwittingAccomplice Sat 01-Nov-14 19:00:23

Yay new pub!

<settles in with wine>

Pondering. Like the bechdel test, does anyone know if movie criticism has been analysed in the same way? We use metacritic and rotten tomatoes a lot to choose what to watch, and it's struck me that movies with strong female characters don't seem to get the scores I'd expect...

Bella wine

Ii's lashing rain and I have no annual leave left, so I'll have a pina colada with an umbrella in it please.
Unwitting, I've noticed that about rotten tomatoes too - shower of sexist teenage boys I reckon

<slinks in> I may have broken the welcome wagon, sorry about that. I didn't realise so many people who were ambivalent about feminism would object so strongly to my saying something wasn't feminist.

Feel half inspired and half depressed by the last few days' discussion

I have been quite slack and haven't read most threads carefully. Will do when I switch myself on again. hmm

BellaSolanum Sat 01-Nov-14 19:45:40

Don't worry Outs you can't please everyone smile

TessOfTheAmityvilles Sat 01-Nov-14 19:52:15

Is it really that hard to understand that someone can be a feminist, and yet make non-feminist choices, even I can grasp that fact and I'm not the sharpest in the box?! wink

Some artwork for the walls. I love this painting, especially the cats face. Apparently it's called Raining Cats.

Thanks for the shiny new pub Buffy.

BellaSolanum Sat 01-Nov-14 20:06:28

<rubs eyes>

Maybe I'm just really tired, but I can't see a cat?

DoctorTwo Sat 01-Nov-14 20:10:18

Forgot to put that that was painted by a five year old girl. Her paintings can fetch £1500 apparently. I can see why, they're beautiful.

OutsSelf Sat 01-Nov-14 20:12:13

Thanks Buffy and Bella thanks

DoctorTwo Sat 01-Nov-14 20:12:21

Bella, if you look about a quarter of the way down and track across you should be able to see a pair of cats eyes. It took me ages to spot too, even after it had been pointed out.

TessOfTheAmityvilles Sat 01-Nov-14 20:14:16

It is an absolutely stunning painting, and wow, five-years old, that's just amazing.

The brush work is incredible, and the color work exceptional, I'm in awe (and I'm a designer/artist myself, but in a different medium).

mimithemindfull Sat 01-Nov-14 20:15:48

Good evening all. (Peeps shyly in as a bit intimidated by pubs ) Mines a large san peligrino .Neither can I Bella. Great picture though doctor. It's just as well there are no cats though coz maybe the goat won't like them

mimithemindfull Sat 01-Nov-14 20:17:21

Oh yeah I can see it now. Amazing. ..
