It’s the drink talking

Last night I went to the pub, for one of our regular BT Curry Night get-togethers.

It’s the first one I’ve been to for quite a while now: sometimes, by the time I’ve struggled home from work on the motorway(s), I just can’t be bothered to go out again, despite knowing that I’ll have a good time once I get there.

So last night, I made the effort. And it was good.

The curry was good. The beer was good. The company were good.

We laughed and we drank and we talked:

Films that stick in your mind
Kids films that play better to adults
People we used to work with (“Now, what was his name?”)
Getting old
The Conservative candidate for Harpenden
Is the space between a nucleus and it’s electron really empty, or is it actually full of custard?
Cheap radios
Talcum powder mines
Surfing
The Beach Boys
TXE4 Cyclic Stores and EEProms
Table tennis
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century
The Six Million Dollar Man
Sam Fox is a lesbian? Really?
Paper thicknesses and weights

… are just some of the things we chatted about. I can’t remember the rest.

And it’s just as well, if that list is the best bits!

    So, what was the consensus regarding our new Conservative man? I assume one of your group lives here? I voted for him, but have had little in the way of information about him. No one seemed to be trying very hard around here!!

    ps. For the first time I have remembered that I have to put my ” details” at the bottom before trying to submit, and then getting told off!!

    There was no consensus, Frances, just a funny story… which I won’t print here!

    It’s amazing what a curry can bring out of you. Sam Fox is a lesbian? Oh, and she’s also the new Conservative candidate for Harpenden.

      🙂

      Yes she is. It must be true, because a load of blokes in Wetherspoon’s said so.

      I don’t think the Conservatives in Harpenden need any help from Ms Fox!

    That sounds like a well-rounded series of in-depth conversations. I even understood some of the topics. But what was his name? You know. The chap who looked a bit like thingy off of the TV. Him.

      Was it Colin?
