The Tavern has been quiet for a while, but I'm in the mood to celebrate. Resigned this morning from a job that's been stressing me out for too long; new job starts in a months time. First round is on me!

Cheers Jock and congrats. Mines a GlenMorangie - madeira wood preferred but any'll do. I'm getting a bit fed up of office politics myself and thinking of going back to contract work (Unix SysAdm/Consultancy type stuff). Any comments?

Always glad to stop in at the Tavern and hoist a few...

At the end of the day I like a little time to raise up me glass and sing!

Say! Has someone been redecorating? I don't remember that copy machine next to the Bar...Is there someone underthat pile of printouts? I thought I saw it move...

Hey! Lookee this! It's 1,455,921 copies of Child Ballad 273A. Sorcha musta been here.

Single Malts half price???? I'll have two then;-)

Is there any Clutie (sp?) dumpling for afters or is that only at Hogmanay?

Pile on the neeps and tatties and I'll have an extra piece of Haggis anyway...

Is it true that the Haggis has one set of legs shorter than the other for going up hills and is easiest to catch when it overbalances on the way down btw???

Wow - that GlenMorangie is good - I think I'll be seeing that pile of papers move soon....

Well done on your escape, Jock, I just did something similar and know I did the right thing....hope it works out as well for you. And now that I'm here I may as well have a wee drop of the Glenlivet to warm me up.
........MMario, there is something moving under that pile of paper....and I can see a telephone cord running in there too.....do you suppose we should go in and look?

Oh, a drink would be lovely. I've just been accused of opressing the working classes, and then of being brainwashed by the bourgeois (see - I have difficulty spelling bourgeois, so I can't be in it!) because I am a student - strange logic indeed - by a strange bloke picking a fight who was subsequently arrested when he turned on someone else. It was quite entertaining.

AggieBeth - the Tavern comes complete with a VERY fully stocked bar - everything from chocolate milk to frozen cinnamon mocha double expresso ice cream waffle sandwiches. Name yer poison! It all goes on Bert's charge card. (A long standing tradition here at the Tavern. We haven't managed to max the card out yet.)

No, it's just that there's a very unusual echo in here. I know you don't often get echoes that do harmonies, but there you are. You'll just have to take my word for it. Besides, how long has the PRS been represented by a small dog (once played by Tim Brooke-Taylor in ISISTA)?

Just arrived in time to see Joe Offer (or someone very like him) tucking into the last available portion of haggis.

Morticia passed me her left over neeps and tatties, but someone had stubbed out a cigarette in it, and there was a pool of yellowish and pungent fluid on the plate that I didn't care to examine too closely. Spot!!!

Anyway, I've just selected the "Best of Jake Thakray" CD on the Jukebox, so while Matt R's choice Oasis album finishes I'll have a treble Bowmore and a jug of water please.

Oh, yes, a pack of hedgehog flavour crisps, please. No I don't care about the sell-by date - they're traditional flavoured.
