I've just spent the afternoon in the pub with surliminal, gummitch, missfairchild, flick and drplokta. Our hostess was full of wine and not shy about voicing her opinions, although others did manage to get a word in occasionally. In fact, we managed to talk a very great deal. The only food we had were two plates of starters between the six of us -- and there was some suspicion that we'd missed out on available sausages, at that. No matter. Lots of drink, lots of talk, good company. Sleep now.
