Good then; we are agreed.  I'll have the banner put up in that lot straight away, and I'll drop a note to the Quarterly Review.

Perhaps someone else should visit the Smoking Room this time, so that I do not appear too garrulous.

(i.e. reply to myself Wink )

You are in the right place ma'am...the Tea Room business is being conducted in the Tea Room proper. *tips hat*  I am sorry if there was any confusion, simply because we are out here at the front.

Oh, no! You've merely wandered into the midst of our plans.
This is the tea room, please, take a seat
How are you?

OK, I've announced it everywhere but the Club, of course I had to have the help clear a few weeds out of the lot first, as no one had visited it in some time.  But we're good to go.

Alright, so, my metabolism has shifted, and I must leave. I shall return soon, so that I may help with the empty lot preparations!

Heh 'fraid I didn't...being a mutant space alien an American, and without a working television! Two strikes again' me!  Cheesy

But come to think of it, the ladies are being a bit quiet...up to something, definitely.

Interestingly, my metabolism has shifted also; in my case, though, it's time to feed the other machine.  

On a final note, I now state formally and directly that the Time Machine Show is open to Travelers of both all sexes.  I shall see you all again soon!

*tips hat again in the general direction of the ladies, and departs*

I missed Cranford as I have a husband who hates costume dramas. Boo.

Not sure I belong here, liking neither tea nor gin, but I am female.

You have  to see season one and two before you see the Christmas special otherwise nothing makes much sense. Season one does however have Philip Glenister in yellow breeches

Philip Glenister... Am I very wrong to have developed a bit of a crush on him in Life on Mars? His Cranford charachter was good, but Gene Genie..... Unreconstructed 70s male, true, but all the same.... Woof (howwwwl)
