Oh not much..... Mind you, I did see Jane Austen recently, during a quick trip to test my temporal perambulator.

She's........not what you expect! The language! She could make a sailor blush! And she should know, rumor has it that she has "sunk more sailors than the Napoleonic Wars"....If you follow my meaning.
I found her at a barefist street fight, I had no idea she enjoyed the sport, but I must say she was pretty good - she easily took down her opponent, though I did feel the repeated kicking of his testicles while screaming "Get up you F***ING C***RAG!", to be somewhat.....excessive.

However things turned nasty when the police showed up. She took one of them hostage after biting off the ear, of the one who tried to arrest her. Took two hours to subdue her - in the end they were able to distract her with a bucket full of Laudanum, which she promptly consumed and demanded another....

A remarkable woman, to say the least...

Oh you think that's bad. You've obviously never seen the Bronte Sisters in action (I once remember seeing them take down an entire ship's worth of drunken sailors in a barroom brawl).

Do you know, I found him doing a painting of some some thin faced man with ginger hair and beard - and he was crying with laughter.  When I inquired as to what he found so funny, he said that the painting was "A self portrait!" and then bust out laughing. I pointed out that the painting looked nothing like him, he didn't have a beard for starters, and he said "That's the point!". Deeply confused, I left him to his giggles and painting.

A couple of days later, the chap featured in the painting turned up asking the painter. He introduced himself - James Self.

Then I got the joke - a "Self portrait".

It seems the painter chap found this private joke to be his favorite, as he began painting several more of James Self, and titled them as "Self portrait". He was amused by the fact that long after his death people would think THAT is what he the painter looked like...


A most odd fellow indeed.

It may or may not pour. And just looking at the glass will affect whether it gets served or not. More over it's a type of ale with "dual nature;"  Some people say it's a liquid and others a type of substance made from very small solid pellets.  The pellets will pour fine in the glass, but if you look at the bottle in a certain wave while pouring, the liquid will inexplicably wave in all directions, spherically from the neck of the bottle.

A neat trick is to pour through a plate with double slit.  You will get interesting inteference wave paterns in the glass before the pellets transform back into a liquid.  This brand has a relatively high Plank's Constant, so drink moderately.

No, I just shifted into another timeline. Relative to you I am barely moving, but relative to me, it's been a few months since I left the Smoking Room and came back.

From the looks of the place not much by way of smoke or libation. Could everyone be at a Procrastinators' Club meeting?

Indeed.  We'll have to wait a while for the food to arrive, with all the horseless carriages congesting the roads at this hour...
