Xenos you are a strange one.

Indeed I am, good professor, indeed I am!  It stems from my childhood-dear mother fell down the stairs when she was pregnant (a spiral staircase, what's more!) with me...

The drugs help.  They really do!

door opens, Miles steps through and closes it quietly,glances about to see who's on first, then goes off to the W.C. to wash up... comes back in after a few munites and says to the Barman" bourbon and branch water over ice please", lays a  silver reale on the bar and says "Gentlemen , would you like a refill? , " " one for yourself if you wish George" to the barman.

I really shouldn't be drinking- I find that alcohol and essay writing don't go particularly well together.  I tend to write what I'm thinking.... that said, I believe I deserve some liquid refreshment right about now  Cheesy

Block and tackle in place, with chains hitched to a good steam powered winch.
Pennypecker gives a nod to the engineer, then takes a seat by the window with a tumbler filled with whiskey.
Looking out the window as the building begins to rise and the sun light streams in.

The soot covered mechanic starts the wench and the Smoking Room is hoisted back up to the top of the BG forum board.
The staff with a touch of embarrassment scurries about dusting the cobwebs out of the corners and uncovering the furniture.

“Much better, another few weeks and we would have become the forum basement. Now we are back were we belong!”
Pennypecker looks around to see who else has been hibernating in the long dark midnight of the soul.

*starts in his chair* 
*splutters, then awakens*

Heaven forfend, I hadn't realised it was quite that time.  Methinks we should fit some wings or a couple of gas cells to the room to keep it aloft- don't want it falling too far in future, eh?

The door opens. The Squire walks in.

"I say, it's good to see The Smoking Room again!" he announces to no one in particular.
Nodding to several couples huddled in the corner, he doffs his topper to Mr. Harrison, and moves toward the bar.

"Good day, George. I believe I will have a glass of Monsieur Mariani's Finest, if you please." The Squire takes a deep breath, "And one of those beautiful Cubano Robustos from your humidor. I will be in my regular chair by the window . . . it is good to be back."

BACK! Back, I say!

*Xenos raises his head, looks around red-eyed, and raises his arm for a drink, only to find that the rather rough landing from the Fall has seemed to dislocate it*

"Well then, chaps...  Perhaps I could get a bottle of Brandy over here then?  A little something to ease the pain, yes?"

(pauses to shake off dust and cobwebs)

I say "George" would you be so kind as to pass me the Port decanter and a fresh glass, I think that the other is empty and I can't find my glass. Oh yes could you also reach in to the humidor and get me some fresh rolling tobacco, my pouch seems to be empty.

So good to see the club has been dragged out of the basement and back to the top of the building where it belongs cheers all!
