*Mr Harrison alternately tip toes and staggers through the room, trying to simultaneously avoid debris and detritus from the party and remain tolerably close to upright*

Wha.... I'm alive!  I survived the combined ChristHogmanYears party! 

....

Ah.  Oh dear.  As I appear to be the only one achieving locomotion and coherent thought beyond 'Aaaaaah!  My head!' at this point, it seems I have to do the clearing up....

*feigns continued hangover and crawls out of the room*

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

My new year resolution is to go out more often, so I just parked my wooden bicycle outside. It's a good thing I put spikes on my tires, slippery roads over here.
*Takes off foggy glasses and rubs them clean*
Nice and cosy over here, altough the smell of swetty men, sigars and booze is a bit overwelming at first. But I'm starting to get used to it.
Man it was a long bike ride.

Bartender, please pour me a glass of ice cold Yagermeister and keep the bottle within reach.

Aaah... Pins and needles in the netherregions. Possibly the most peculiar sensation one can experience.

Never had it in the gentlemen's area, but I can say with confidence that pins and needles in the legs combined with an expedition down a flight of stairs makes for an interesting means of locomotion.

The blood is circulating again in the private area. After a couple of more Yagermeister, I'm starting to feel just fine. Kind of tingly in the head, but that's just the booze.
Can I have another bottle of Yagermister bartender?

 Matthias Pennypecker manages to sip into the club despite not being a member. The intrepid  newspaper reporter is never daunted by trivialities like “membership” when he’s hot on the trail of a good story, and this one was big too.

Rumors had been circulating for some time, that right hear in the heart of London that their was at least one Englishmen who was not drunk after three in the afternoon!

{ No its true I tell you! }

Determined to find the truth of said rumors Pennypecker heads into the lounge and lines up for a friendly game of billiards. As he waits, he investigates each gentlemen in the room intent on positively identify the teetotaler for his readers back in the states.

I rather gather that some fellow hereabouts is seeking amongst our number a member of the Temperance Movement.  He would, I would submit, have rather more success trying to find a stone that bleeds.

Right oh. That's a whisky, and some tar.
*Pours the Whisky*
I'll have to get  back to you in regards to the tar, unfortunately. We haven't any in right now. I do however have a good deal of honey left over from a previous endeavour.

1 guinea for a moustache  Huh

I got mine for free, and find it keeps growing back (albeit with an alarming lack of alacrity) when I rid myself of it.

I regret to inform you Mr. Pennypecker, that I have been enjoying the clubs hospitality for several hours now and I can say with authority, that you and I are the only sober guests at this time.
I even saw the clubs butler sneaking a  nip from a flask in the cloak room.
So I fear your quest is in vain, as I too am an American. Not a sober Brit to be found.
