Of course, I am violently allergic to cats...

The only picture we have of the Dean is not overly flattering but in my head he looks a little more like this

Come in, enjoy, help yourself to Twiglets.
Yours sincerely, a Fair Trespasser.

Brilliant title Twigs, thank you! I am loving the photo of our very own Dear Delight. Shall we get our own back on him by mistaking him for a spry young gamekeeper and asking him to clear out our grouse covers?

Ha, got the last post in on t'other thread.

What a lovely building this one is, I don't believe I have been to this part of the University before. The furnishings are a bit sparse though.

SupermassiveLBD · 17/05/2011 17:48

That's because you have misappropriated those curtains again, Small.

::Puffs up the staircase to the senior common room::

Do we have space somewhere for the Michelangelo?

SupermassiveLBD · 17/05/2011 17:54

There is always room for our wonderful Works of Art

SupermassiveLBD · 17/05/2011 18:01

Nice butt on him coat he's wearing, Mrs F.

TheSmallPrint · 17/05/2011 18:24

I did NOT remove the curtains this time I believe we left in a bit of a rush and did not pack up properly. I will sneak back when it's dark and retrieve them.

He we are ladies, curtains recovered!
ComeIntoTheGardenMaud · 17/05/2011 19:55

How lovely to see you here, Mrs Flittersnoop. Would you care for a glass of gin Polish cordial?

ComeIntoTheGardenMaud · 17/05/2011 20:04

Those Damerels are (dare I say it) a little disappointing. This is more what I was hoping for.

::swoons in a girlish fashion::

TheSmallPrint · 17/05/2011 20:33

I was about to open the gizzy actually Wine care to join me?

ComeIntoTheGardenMaud · 17/05/2011 20:41

My dear, I don't mind if I do.

SupermassiveLBD · 17/05/2011 20:59

Good evening ladies. I see I'm just in time for a swig of PC very small glass of sweet sherry

DumSpiroSpero · 17/05/2011 21:01

'Evening my fellow professors!

I have bought along a little friend for Uzi - thought it was about time he had some company.

Meet Mischka

SupermassiveLBD · 17/05/2011 21:05

Someone thinks that's funny.

This is what I was meaning earlier about sunny smiles but not for a good reason.

SupermassiveLBD · 17/05/2011 21:08

I was referring to my tipple in the last post, not the adorable kitten. How gorgeous, Spiro.

Is it me, or is MN playing up again?

ComeIntoTheGardenMaud · 17/05/2011 21:09

::Raises glass::

Your very good health.


ComeIntoTheGardenMaud · 17/05/2011 21:11

Yes, it seems a bit erratic, Massive, but nowhere near as bad as last night.

DumSpiroSpero · 17/05/2011 21:11

Have just been looking over the bits I missed last night, and another look at the 'tiger' pic from earlier. That & the last 10 seconds of the Lucas party bag...thud!

Re grass query earlier, Maud, DD has to make a model dinosaur 'world'. It's one of several 'mini projects' that she has until end of term to complete so we have a good 6 weeks if we start pronto. I thought it would be fun to make something 'real' rather than with paper etc. If I could get something like a cat litter tray to make it in could make 2-3 inch compost base rather than cotton wool, but would that still not be long enough timewise?

Otherwise will get a couple of different types of cress seed (I haven't got a green fingered bone in my body and I do like to make things difficult for myself Confused)

SupermassiveLBD · 17/05/2011 21:13

Oh lawdy Miss Maudy! I have two words for you, ladies. Saracen bow....

DumSpiroSpero · 17/05/2011 21:14

If I get much more of that gratuitous pic, I'm going to need my blood pressure checked out. I presume that's a fan he's posing with - I bet she's got that in one heck of a frame!

KaraToytown · 17/05/2011 21:21

Nice place you have here.
I have a blood pressure monitor if anyone needs it.

DumSpiroSpero · 17/05/2011 21:24

I think the kitties need one of these!

ROFL! Grin
