Helen St. James isn't there, not in any perceptible way. A woman of her size - she's willing to admit she could lose a few pounds, but darn it, she likes how she looks - usually has no way of sneaking about, but one minute Helen is not there, and the next she is. She takes a seat at the bar and waves down the bartender.

"Hey there, sugar," she says. "Javameister, please and thank you. And a couple of those famous creme eggs."

Hi there Helen and welcome. Although my stops at the Pub have been brief so far I guarantee that you will always have fun here and the pubbers will steal your heart.

No. Really. Guard your heart or it will end up in one those tinted jars and you will never be free again! :chair

Sadly, 2014 and I were off to a feuding start.

You too? What a gawdorful year it started out to be!

*Hoards the yummy Cadbury eggs*

It's getting better though. :)

Now, no need to hoard. Whatever we have in the Pub, there is an infinite supply. Somewhere, in one of the sub-basements, there will be a Cadbury egg confectionary, staffed by nimble-fingered gnomes and sugar-beasties. They will not let us run out!

:D

And yeah, getting better, this year is, may the trend continue.

Kylabelle :Hug2:

Uggh. Talk about awful beginnings. Someone broke into into our house and amongst other things my darling laptop was stolen. I've been going through withdrawal ever since. :cry: Apparently there were mood swings and such.

I'm much more stable now that I have tech to play with and I'll be showing my face around here much more often

I guess I should slow down before I hit a sugar coma then. :D

Oh wow, that is horrid, having your laptop stolen! Glad you're recovering from the trauma.

I ruined my last one by spilling tea on the keyboard and being too ignorant to know how to deal with that until it was too late. :( I might rather have one stolen, at least then it's somebody else's fault!

Anyway, here's to better times! :e2drunk:

Oh that does suck. I think we only learn from our mistakes after we commit them. For example I will now back up my work weekly.

I have merrily cursed the thief to fates that would make Stephen King or Dean Koontz proud though. My imagination is extremely therapeutic at times.

Anyway, here's to better times! :e2drunk:

Cheers to that hon.

Been pretty well. I've missed this space. Been busy with domestic duties and my WIP. Only wrote 600 words today and nothing yesterday, but I had to work out a little glitch in a scene...something that didn't make sense when I thought about it. I was afraid I'd have to delete an entire chapter, but I managed to make a few minor changes and it'll work. I'm about 8K words into it, but slowing down now to outline.

Spent some time lurking about the SYW threads today...

How are you, awesome samurai friend?

"Cadbury Creme Eggs". *snicker* *snicker*
It always makes me nervous when mods start snickering...

Nadja! Sunshine! :e2arms:

zanzjan I was only just starting to get to know you when the health dept closed the last pub down, but you're welcome to join our welcome back hug :e2grouphu

Now for a gin and tonic. I've been wanting one (or two) of late.

*rummages under the bar*

Ah! found the bacon twizzle sticks!

*pounces on BMajor* Welcome!

*passes bmajor a razor and a whiskey w/just a faint whiff of sour*

You might want to use the razor before you start imbibing.

I'd take you up on the game, but if I don't feed my cat soon...well it won't be pretty.
Ciao!

Hello all. Sorry I have not been around lately. School started up and I have been really busy with school so I won't be on much. I haven't even had time to write any of my WIP. :( Makes me sad.

No worries rinji, the pub just re-opened. Keep you focus on school for now, that's far more important than hanging out in pubs :)
Your WIP will be waiting for you patiently!

Welcome to the new and improved pub with Cadbury cream eggs!

*passes bowl of chocolate eggs down to ramshackle*

*pours a whiskey sour and slides it down too*

Nice to see you again, but it's off to bed for me now. Ta!
