*goes to flick cigar ash into ashtray, finds it oddly missing from bar counter... uses floor instead*

Didyou say McCoy?... Was he with an oddly enthusiastic Scottish chappy - he borrowed my first temporal perambulator, and never returned it!  Still, he left me a couple of bottles of something called "Aldebaran whiskey" in return - I have some here actually...

*produes large hip flask*

It tastes.....erm it's very...uhm....it's a......

...It's green...

Anyone for sip?...

*accepts a dram poured into a collapsible cup that he produces from a pocket in the inner lining of his lab coat. Knocks it back*

GUULP. Ah, yes, a very...I say...

*a rumbling issues from somewhere deep within himself*

Interesting, it feels all bubbly inside...

Vodka or brandy, either one works for me gentlemen. And don't mind me, I quite enjoy what I've been hearing. A lady ought to experience a bit of excitement in a day. One can only consume so much tea before she gets bored of polite company. Wink not that I ever turn down a good earl grey.
I must ask, do we have any pilots present? From my trips in the USA I'm finding it to be terrible flying weather. Snow in the middle of April in the north, quite unpleasant.

We're not rowdy, we're just high-spirited. That bugger Skumins keeps putting the brandy on the top shelf and pinching the stepladder, the cad.

Oh sorry about that, the Dodo has weakness for it - and it doesn't agree with him. Gets a bit fighty you see...

*looks around for dodo - spots him picking at a stale cheese toasty at other side of room*

The stepladder is hidden behind the toilet door - surprised no one spotted it while answering the call of nature....


Although that may explain the aroma from the broom cupboard!

Pilots hey? *rubs chin and considers B-space portal* Nah it would take too long to explain. Nope, never flown in my life....
Behind the toilet door, so that what I tripped over when one of you buggers turned of the light on me last night. Gave me a hell of a fright, and I believe it is now quite broken.
*contemplates the bottle perched on the very top shelf* So how are we going to get that down for the Lady? Round of vodkas to help lubricate the braincells folks?

Sounds lovely to me. And quite right sir, high spirited is a much better description.

*Wanders in, covered in dust and carrying a large purple egg*

Got this from a Venusian trader just a bit ago... *consults a watch that seems to contain a miniature planetary system* Well, more than a bit...

*Places the egg carefully on the bar, and leans down to eye-level with the egg. The egg rocks gently, apparently under it's own power*

I'm told these eggs make the most delightful eggnog (though it seems I'm a bit late for Christmas) but it's gotten a Gibbous inside it. Nasty buggers... and this one engulfed the key to my time machine.

*contemplates the rocking egg for a moment*

Oh well, only one thing for it... *begins to search around the bar for a heavy hammer, muttering* need a whisk too, and some gin... bit of Neptunium wouldn't go amiss either...

*saunters in, and adjusts his cravat. Looks around and see that the bar is empty, and seems to have been deserted for some time.*

Hmmm...

*Notices that the shelves are still stocked, and the ashtrays are clean. Wanders behind the bar, and feel something crunch beneath his boots*

Purple shards of what appear to be eggshell?Huh?

*takes a bottle of 200 year old Scotch from the shelf and proceeds to the balcony, to watch the 4 moons in their eternal, celestial ballet.*

Ah...yes both good questions... when and where.

*scratches head while trying to come up with the short explanation*


Well....you're in the pub, in a chair....and it's about *checks watch* 9.30 am ....relative earth time.

Other details are more sketchy since the universe had a meltdown and restarted. Convergence of a paradoxical pocket universe encroaching on the parent universe you see, a terrible business it was...  

I blame myself really - sadly, so do the other chaps....

To be honest, I'm not sure where 'here' was to begin with - had a slight problem with my temporal perambulator and ended up crossing the divide between the realities of the multiverse, and I ended up here. As did the Dodo...


So...did that help at all?

Would you care for a drink? You look like you need one...

And yes a drink would do me good, but as I said I have no way of paying. If you have need of help. I may be willing to help in exchange for a place to stay and some food. That is tell a time i can sort things out and find a way back to my right time.

Well, our barkeep seems to be on his break, and the till has no cash drawer - it was stolen at some earlier time, strangely enough about the same time as the mysterious disappearance of the original barkeep.

So I suggest you do what we all do - Help your self to some free booze until whoever owns this place realizes there is a cashflow issue...  Oh, and you might want to avoid the dodo, he can be a bit temperamental sometimes.


Abinsthe or brandy...?

Well in that case, a brandy will do.

Thanks.
