Sorry I missed this meet up. I was in the local this evening. Hope to see you all soon!

We'll do an "official" one in February, Thomas!

Unfortunately that pesky annoyance called "work" has gotten in the way, so I won't be able to join. Have a great time everyone and I will try and make the next meeting.

Thor, I realise that you're probably trying to keep this "semi-secret", like we do at Alcoholics Anonymous, but I'm not sure of the current link. "Same as before" as in what was posted in June (I think) last year? Could you confirm it please, at the risk of being swamped by our aunties joining in with bursts of "The hills are alive..." and dropping hot Tetley tea bags in our already sodden laps?

I'll be drinking water by the way. I'm now really into getting up early on Saturdays and going for a run. Then back to bed till 12.

Sorry to hear about your new habit of getting up on Saturdays to run, Graham! wink

No water here! I've bought a good selection of specialty beers for tonight, many of which will already be consumed by 21:30. I've also bought a whole carton of red wine (not to be consumed tonight alone, but to last me a couple of weeks before it turns sour, hopefully). It's called Icono, and is from your neck of the woods, Graham. Don't ask me about details; I've never tried it before and don't know anything about wine.



If it's any comfort to your new regime, Graham, I have to set a cut-off point at 01:00 Oslo time, and I will also be drinking water for the last two hours or so. Need to reign in those hangovers a bit.

Thank you for a great chat yesterday! We covered the gamut from Robert Prince to Rick Wakeman, and everything inbetween. The next will be in May.

Just to let you all know that the next pub crawl chat will be:

Saturday, May 7th at 9:30 PM Oslo time.

So now you have an early notification....plus it's a Saturday for once, so should hopefully accomodate more US folks.

This weekend, I'm taking it relatively easy, as I have a very busy week next week. But May will hopefully be better. So just a few specialty beers stored (a couple of Tuborgs, a Leffe, a Brewdog IPA, a Schous Pilsner, an Aas chili blonde etc.). Also a couple of bottles of wine -- one red (Fetzer) and a white (Como Sur Bicicleta).

Thor, May 14 is Eurovision Grand Final night. That's no good?

 
 
 Posted:   Apr 22, 2022 - 7:03 AM   
 By:   Thor   (Member)

Oh, damn. I don't watch it myself anymore, but maybe most others do? I've changed it to 7th!

 
 Posted:   Apr 22, 2022 - 7:12 AM   
 By:   Thomas   (Member)

Well I obviously can't speak for anyone else and I suspect most probably don't watch it, but I always host a small gathering of friends and family on Grand Final night. I don't expect you to change the date just to accommodate me, but if it's fine with folk then thanks.

 
 
 Posted:   Apr 22, 2022 - 7:13 AM   
 By:   Thor   (Member)

Yeah, if it had just been your own personal thing, I wouldn't have changed the date (as much as I love you, Thomas!), but I'm suspecting the final is a more widespread thing, so let's do it! May 7th it is! smile

Just a reminder that we have a chat tonight. Specially tailored for US folks this time, since it's a Saturday, so I hope my "Friday Sacrifice" wasn't all in vain. wink

I hope to be there, but I may be a bit late. With the warm weather and longer evening sunshine, I'll probably be tempted to sit out later at one of the street caf├ęs watching the lorries speed past.

An understanable priority, Graham. Hope to you see later, though. Just to be pre-emptive: I must have some sort of cut-off point....2 AM Oslo time at the latest for me.

No problems there, Thor. In my old age I usually feel like going to bed around midnight, even at weekends. Then I get up at 7 o'clock on Sundays and walk into town for the newspaper. I am now officially old.

And how I laughed at the satirical publication (crass comic) "Viz" when in my student days I read in their "Top Tips" page - "Pretend you're an old-age pensioner by getting up on Sundays at 7 o'clock and walking into town for the newspaper".

Thank you for tonight! It's probably the most laidback meeting we've ever had. Covered an enormous amount of topics, but surprisingly little about film music.

That was a good one Thor. Thanks. But why were there only three of us left at the bar at the end? Are we so scary/boring that everyone flees from us? Speak up those who abandoneth us - you know who you are. And, so do we.

I was hoping that you would carry on the ongoing conversation when the final session started rather than wonder why I left.

The session-ending break seemed like a convenient moment to stop. It was an enjoyable chat. Thanks all.

(If you were thinking of someone else just ignore my comments above.)

It was a plural you, Bairn. So I was including you (singular) in my finger-pointing. You just got fed up with us, didn't you? It was only 5 o'clock in the morning in Falkirk. No excuse for "going to bed".
