  • I think your fantasies are getting a little vivid and out of hand (so to speak) for a Monday night MF image

    Bed time for me.  Night pub x

    <doesn't understand any of that up there at all>

  • Shouldn't you be out there collecting glasses, recycling and all, Womble? Making good use of things that you find? image
  • Morning pubworld

    Looks like things got interesting around here after I dropped off last night!

  • I dropped off last night but was rudely awakened 2 hours later by some numpty who decided to play 70s disco music at full volume - and I mean full volume the bass was making my house vibrate - from a car somewhere outside.  Couldn't actually see where it was coming from so couldn't do my Mrs Angry bit in my jimjams and tell them where to stick their 'Funky Town' etc. 

    Took me about 2 hours to get back to sleep but woke about 4 times after that.  I fear I am joining the pub insomniac club image

    Today I am tired and slightly grumpy ... a long weekend has left copious amounts of stuff on my desk image.

    Moan over - back to work!

  • REMEMBER YOU'RE A WOMBLE
    The Wombles - 1974

    When the sun doesn't shine and it's cloudy and gray
    And it's only the beginning of the wombling day
    And you've got to do the washing up for Madame Cholet

    Chorus:
    Remember, remember, remember, remember
    Remember, remember, remember (member, member, member)

    Remember you're a Womble
    (Remember you're a Womble)

    Remember you're a Womble
    (Remember you're a Womble)

    Remember you're a Womble
    (Remember you're a Womble)

    Remember you're a Womble
    (Remember you're a Womble)

    Remember, member, member, what a Womble, Womble, Womble you are

    When it's foggy on the common and you just can't see
    And I womble into you and you womble into me
    Just remember we're so lucky to be wombling free

    Fab lyrics eh?

  • But I prefer this one:

    THE WOMBLING SONG
    The Wombles

    Underground, overground, wombling free,
    The Wombles of Wimbledon Common are we.
    Making good use of the things that we find,
    Things that the everyday folks leave behind.

    Uncle Bulgaria,
    He can remember the days when he wasn't behind the times,
    With his map of the world.
    Pick up the papers and take them to Tobermory!

    Wombles are organised, work as a team.
    Wombles are tidy and Wombles are clean.
    Underground, overground, wombling free,
    The Wombles of Wimbledon Common are we!

    People don't notice us, they never see,
    Under their noses a Womble may be.
    We womble by night and we womble by day,
    Looking for litter to trundle away.

    We're so incredibly, utterly devious
    Making the most of everything.
    Even bottles and tins.
    Pick up the pieces and make them into something new,
    Is what we do!

    Underground, overground, wombling free,
    The Wombles of Wimbledon Common are we.
    Making good use of the things that we find,
    Things that the everyday folks leave behind.

    Must get a copy for the pub jukebox.

  • The sad thing is that I knew most of the words to both of thos songs ..... I truly am a sad old git image
  • So am I and I love it , have a look at this Damart catalogue, there's some really sexy long johns in here in a really comfy winceyetteimage

    So how many teams have we got for Luton then?  Is there enough for a Rampant Regulars team as well as the Buxom Barstaff?

  • I think we're at 6 definites and 3 maybes at the moment so probably a Rampant Regulars is a distinct possibility.

    Thamls for the tip about Damart ... I'll check out their website .....image

  • Is there a smell of liniment in here?
  • <sniffs>

    liniment is one of my most favourite of words image

  • liniment and masticate...
  • avocado

    honey

    alabaster

  • meretricious
  • I thought it was Deep Heat.

    <this is plodders, isn't it?>

  • My favourite word? Cooldown! image

    Afternoon pub peeps? Any Spanish lager knocking about? Can we have a Spanish theme night tomorrow and support Barca as they hopefully knock the Mancs out of the Champions League?image

    I'll bring my maracas.....

  • I'll bring my Spaniard - we have a deal image

    Afternoon ST - how you doing? Hello Womble - we very rarely meet in here...

  • Hi LT - I'm fine, thank you. Up in London for a meeting this morning and back up in an hour for another one.

    LB, we have plenty Spanish lager (and French, German, Mexican, Czech etc etc) to support your partisan thirst image

    How did Mr LB do in Boston?

    Hello Womble.

  • He got a PB! Finished just behind the winner....

    (Well, OK a bit more than that)image

    4.26.37 - not too shabby for a very hilly course!

    Can't wait for him to come home now. Not very good at this single parent malarkey.....

  • *Goes off in search of Catalan flags and Paella recipes*
  • Well done, Mr LB! Excellent result. When does he get home?

  • Blimey ST, the Smoke is calling you this week! Don't you get too run down now...

    LB, that time is fantastic and awe-inspiring. Well done Mr LB! image
