Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

Now let's get all that stuff into the zep. We can't simply leave good drinks out here.

Did someone bring food? Anyone?

I seem to be slightly late to the party...I am not worthy of my threadjack railroading title.

WHAT? EATING AIR KRAKEN EGGS? INSANITY! Do you want to be gobbled up by an angry mother?

Ah... *dashes back down the gangplank and grabs a large wicker basket from the carriage*

Knew I'd almost forgotten something!

*dashes back aboard and pops the hamper down on a table, pats the top of it*

Got cook to pack a small seasonal hamper... Selection of sandwiches, Cheeses, biscuits, a plum pudding, mince pies, two dozen scotch eggs, jar of gentlemen's relish, a jar of marmite, a couple of loaves and a few other dainties. Spirit stove, coffee pot...

*flips lid open*

Bother. Cook forgot the pickles.

*raises glass at the mention of Moomins*

*sheepish* Well, I made a big batch of meat pies, but thanks to a certain film I figured nobody'd touch 'em.  Besides, you all would suspect my fridge is full of science experiments... aaaaand you'd be right.  At least the minions ate well.

*wanders over to the food*  Capital!  But what is gentlemen's relish?

*produces an immense case of Vienna sausages from somewhere inside his coat - impossibly large to hide under a coat*

So we don't need these? Culinary specialties from my ancestral lands. No offense intended, Mme. Fahrmann. Now, we only need a Bunsen burner or a heat ray - and mustard! Glorious French mustard! *produces a jar from his personal time-space fold*

Oh, that would explain the smell.  I thought it was -um, nevermind.

Heat ray?  I can do that!  People seem to think it's a catastrophe when Mars attacks, but one finds all sorts of stuff in the wreckage once the automata finish with 'em.  This thingy looks like your ordinary photonic pointer, but it's powered by a miniature phlogiston cell - I think.  Anyway, hand over those sausages - don't worry, I managed to turn the gain down and now I keep it on my keychain...

Anchovies blended with butter and herbs & spices.

Utterly divine spread thinly on hot buttered toast. But not for the more delicate of palates Smiley

And it's thoroughly correct for period - invented in 1828. Huzzah! Although the beloved says it smells as if it's from the original batch every time I get some!

Mme. Kirix... there HAS to be an emergency deactivation button. If that thing doesn't put me down NOW, I'll have to permanently deactivate it. Trust me, I've got the means to do so.
