*slowly comes to*

Oh my head!
I had the strangest dream... um...  where are we?
Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary. (Cecil Beaton)

I'm not rightly certain ma'am.  If y'all could pardon the abruptness here a moment,

*grabs hold of Ms Adler's arm, slices the tentacle latched onto it, clicks spurs together, pulling Ms Adler into the air and away from the fray.*

*After landing rather roughly, if it could be called landing,*  Sorry ma'am.  There wasn't much choice there.  You were in the clutches of that soon to be calamari.

There is a reason for this. And trust me, when a bunch of harry potter geeks think your fucking retarded, you know there is something wrong.

"Oh - good thinking!"

Dashes over to the 'Deus Ex Machina Machine' which stands in the corner of the room, and blowing the dust off, presses the big brass button in the centre...

Instantly, the huge tentacly thing starts shrinking...shrinking...shrinking...

* ... until it is small enough that it could fit into a lady's palm... or any other hollow space that might be reached via the nasal passage.*

Hmmm, I think we've seen this little fellow before.

* quickly places the now-overly-cute-and-adorable little creature into one of the empty herb jars and closes the lid before the still-groggy Miss Adler can see it.*

*sitting on the floor, holding her head*

Oh my! I feel like I've been run over by a steamtrain!
Can someone please fill me in, what happened in the meantime?
Why do my clothes have these scorch marks?
And why is there a piece of tentacle...? *pulls it out of her sleeve*

WHAT HAPPENED HERE?

Oh, that... Well, we were just sitting down to a refreshing luncheon of grilled calamari, which these nice gentlemen were going to cook on this nifty little field-stove... when we had, ah, a slight over-pressurisation of the cooking pot... which caused a slight mess... really, there was nothing to worry yourself about, M'dear...

*hides the herb-jar and its agitating knocking contents in a coat-pocket*

Now, if I recall correctly, you were just about to regale us all with a fascinating story about some strange dream you'd been having lately... wasn't she, chaps?

*pops out from behind a shrubbery*

Sushi?! I'd love some!
"Well, I don't really think that the end can be assessed as of itself as being the end because what does the end feel like? It's like saying when you try to extrapolate the end of the universe, you say, if the universe is indeed infinite, then how - what does that mean? How far is all the way, and then if it stops, what's stopping it, and what's behind what's stopping it? So, what's the end, you know, is my question to you."

"Sushi? Great Scott! Raw fish? Not likely! I'll take mine lightly boiled, seasoned with paprika, and garnished with boiled new potatoes and sliced warm red peppers, thanks. Call me a traditionalist, if you like, it really doesn't bother me."

Raises one eyebrow.

"London. And here you go."

Hands Sir Henry the heat ray that was found on that thing that came out of the cylinder...

Sir Henry waits for Miss Adler's interesting new dance (is it the Watutsi?) to come to a full stop before passing her a smoking cup of Darjeeling.

He glowers at Mr Bailey and quietly admonishes "And we'll have none of your saucy sea shanties about Miss Billows, if you please. There are ladies present."

More calamari, anyone? We seem to have cooked up quite a lot of it here...

*passes the platter towards Mr Bailey*

Here, care to cut yourself a slice? I can loan you a knife, Mac...

Awfully decent of you, dear fellow. I have my gloves, of course, so there's never a trace of... *ahem.*

Now, what was this dream you've been 'aving, m'dear?

Haaarrrumpph!

You've misunderstood, sir. I've never heard of anyone named "Billows" in my life, in "sea shanties" or otherwise. Pass the sugar, if you please.

Calamari??? I do hope its not come from a Kosher source!!

I say anybody notice this strange green flappy thingamy here?? - points to strange green tentacle popping out of the wainscotting.

Well, I'm guessing Mr Fitziron hasn't noticed it - he's just gone 'Thud'.

*looks down at the platter and puts it back on the table*

Did anybody see anything suspicious - or should that be anything non-suspicious  - around here?

I do hope it wasn't the underdonecalamari...

Lights a small gas powered blowtorch casually, and toasts a little skewer of fresh tentacles, whilst humming gently to himself.

*looks wistfully at the lightly-charring calamari on Cubinoid's fork, then checks that Ms Adler is distracted before continuing in a discreet tone *

Umm, actually we may have to find an alternate menu - the little chappie in the jar still seems to get agitated whenever you heat the dismembered parts of him... in fact, the jar in my pocket is currently vibrating louder than a soiree at the Clankingtons. Which also means, any of the platters or the undigested portions may somehow still be active...
