Like I said, things are odd here, I wouldn't worry.

No, no, put that away...I mean it...

What are you saying you overheard?  Nothing, nothing...you know, maybe I should get that house in Mongolia.  It'd be...quiet...

*Companion visibly perks up...*

Well, actually... the alcohol might help conduct the electricity... and the beast is actually worse than a realtor!   >:(

Ah yes, the gin.  I'll have one, and so will my companion.

this is the first time i have ventured into this establishment, but being a lover of gin and a not very distinguished lady i felt this may be a good place to make new acquaintances. or at least get rather legless! ;D
and doesn't Mr. Kipling make exceedingly good cakes.......

what a lovely place... im not to sure about the bath tub on the ceiling though

It's for if we run out of gin.


Do we have any teacups that aren't covered in fur?
I can't think that they are hygenic.

Maybe I will have a little absinthe instead

I hope this will be satisfactory. Somehow all the Earl Grey seems to have become tainted with Jamaica Rum! :-[

Welcome to the tea room! (aside: although it seems we're only supplied with booze)
Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can't change. Kiss slowly, play hard, love deeply, forgive quickly, take chances, give everything, and have no regrets. Life is too short to be anything but HAPPY.

*yawn* G'morning good people *staggering in*
I got lost on the way. Fell down some stairs. Just woke up.
So what did I miss?

OK, for those who are getting lost in the secret passageways, my uncle designed a bunch of those, to help us control the, erm, Ealtors-ray...*looks askance at companion*...and I have the blueprints; feel free to come and have a look, while they're still up-to-date.  Be aware that the passages and stairways around here are designed to change on their own every now and again, the better to confuse our...enemies...so you'll want to keep visiting often to stay on top of it.  Wouldn't want any House of Leaves problems, after all.

Erm...no, dear, you can't look.  No, I won't say why.  You can just come with me when you need to visit; I've already left word that they're to call if you turn up without me.  No, I won't say why!  Look, we went and looked at houses in Mongolia on your say-so, right?  So do this one my way, for me, see?...ok, you have a deal.  Sigh.

*Silently resigns himself to another afternoon of fake house-hunting in distant and forbidding locations*

Kittybriton - a little rum is just fine thank you.  Maybe skip the tea part and add some pineapple juice - oh yes indeed!

This is the, erm, new Tea Room.  The old one has been condemned or something.

*Tesla's companion snickers almost inaudibly*

What was that?  Oh well.

This place does have in common with the other that it is still possible to be both here and in the Gentlemens' Club at the same time.  Important, that.
