Subject: BS: Mudcat Christmas Tavern too....
From: Liz the Squeak

Hey chaps, a new, cleaner, fluffier Tavern has opened up, and is waiting to serve you.

The tree is still in the yard, but the boxes of trimmings are out of the loft and waiting to be dusted off and placed lovingly around the place.

There is wine mulling by the fire, cider cooling out the back, real ale foaming in the wassail bowl, and for lager drinkers, the pipeline from the gents will be clear in about an hour.

The Chieftans are playing 'The bells of Dublin' (or is it the Dubliners playing 'The bells of Chieftans?) in the background and Bing is warming up the vocals for the 14th rendition of 'White Christmas' and that's just this evening!

Come on in, pull up a stool and settle in for the duration.

Sorry about the little accident with the flamethrower/disinfectant sprayer. I left it outside in the powder magazine.

I'd play my trumpet and sing, but with this flareup of dental trouble I can't buzz a mouthpiece and the swelling isn't at all swell. At least the new antibiotics seem to be doing a good job.

So I can't drink and I can't play and I can't sing and I'm in pain because the dentists can't do a root canal job until the swelling goes down. What's left...pain...oh, hell, man, I've got


Vicodin!!! (From a pharmacy, not from the Internet)

Yes!

If I live till tomorrow, it'll be a long song
And I'll live out my life on hydrocodone.

And you'd better nudge the squid out of the hot tub and head him toward the beach. I think he'll enjoy the company down there better (though he sure seemed to enjoy YOUR company, Rapaire--maybe he knew you were a little under the weather and was offering the equivalent of a squid hug?)

And if you've got someplace I can wash some of this elf stench off it would be greatly appreciated. Jesus! If I'd only known how rank those little sumbitches can get I never would've taken this Santa gig. Little bastards musta never even heard of a bath. What? You actually like the smell of elf? Damn, woman, you must be outta your mind. But, hey, listen, why don't you come over here and sit in Santa's lap? Yeah, and we can talk about the first thing that pops up. Maybe Santa's got a little something special in his pouch just for you. Heh, heh, heh!

Isn't Christmas supposed to bring joy to everyone, grownups, near-grownups, non-grownups, and squids alike? Why are we engaging in cephalopod prejudice? Just because the poor thing outweighs a small truck (or lorry), has tentacles with suckers that have teeth, and doesn't have a backbone doesn't mean that it doesn't have feelings! Why, almost every squid I've ever met is far and away more intelligent that any politician you can name and usually far more useful, too.

Be kind to your ten-footed friends
For a squid might be somebody's mother
Be kind to your friends in the deep
Where you never, no never, can peep....

Settled into a large and comfortable armchair by the blazing real log fire. Someone handed me a pint of something called "That Stuff". As they say around here 'kinell. The whole of Christmas in one glass and so thick it had to be chewed. That could have been something to do with the squid of course, he seemed quite partial to it which is probably why he was led away. Didn't go quietly though. Never knew that squids knew the dirty version of British Grenadiers.

Now the hubbub has died down a bit the booze and the fire seem to be working their old magic and I may just let myself drift off for a little snoo.......

Slipping in the back door as a brief respite from Christmas shopping. Someone hands me a steaming glass of Glugg and I sit close to the roaring fire next to a man roasting his nuts. He offers me one but I politely refuse. I explain last time I had one of those my tooth broke and couldn't get to a dentist as he was busy in the Mudcat chat room. I ended up on painkillers so strong that I completely missed Easter and didn't want the same thing to happen to Christmas. I returned to sipping my Glugg and he carried on with his nuts. We didn't speak again.

agar agar petri dishes...well as long as we put a bit

Mudcat Christmas Tavern
The lights were flashing so brightly I thought I would have a hernia in my eye.
Who could drive by a sign so well hung, and so entertainingly displayed in the middle of bum-fuck North-south-east-west polar rightness.

Staggering in, already half baked, I wander in from the northern door. I see a wonderful assortment of people already starting to celebrate a holiday and I want to celebrate too.

I have to wander the tavern to find just the right bar stool and then I had to move it down to the end of the bar where I could watch the Northern door. I was waiting for a friend to arrive with his electric washboard. Said he would meet me here.

I'd like to buy the next round bartender!!
Do we have a bartender?
hell, set us all up with a shot of choice!!

I need to start a tab.

Why is the christmas tree hanging from the rafters? Is this some kinda Andy Warhol party? Well I can dig it.
Tequila and plum for me, Mister Barkeep and keep them coming until I find a place to fall down by the fire,
please.

Oh, one more thing, if the squid is done I would like a morsel to eat before I really get fucked up, okay?

Nothing too crazy yet this year. I'd love to come in out of the cold and have a nice hot chocolate and sing some songs...

After turning down a gig to endorce Quaker Oats, the band Sorcha Dorcha, with Lorcan Otway, blows into the tavern, huge santa like bags of instruments to abuse. We are out of breath, as Amanda and Lorcan have had to run from an anti Amish mob, who can't tell the difference between Quaker and Amish plain dress... (there is the yearly evangelical KKK anti Amish riot which is held every year in honnor of the birth of the prince of peace, generally at a loss to stone anyone, as it is held in Rhienbec New Mexico, where there aren't many Amish, but there was this big Celtic Progressive music blow out concert... and DAMN but can't them crackers run even in those bed sheets!!!) Also out of breath is third band member Dick Cheney, who even though he is tall thin and red haired, both red and blue voters took him for the VP of the USA, and half the crowd wanted to try him for war profiteering, the other half wanted to ask for his autograph, shake his hand and lick his face for good luck. Amanda sets her bonnet straight, Lorcan pops the dents out of his broad brimmed hat and head, and Scott "Dick" Cheney glues his guitar back together and they launch into their new turned on version of Good King Wnsceslaus, while the band's monkey passes the tin cup, which becomes filled with an odd mixture of bear, rice wine, whiskey and religious tracts. The monkey downs the lot and passes out.

I warned ya about carols in here! (donates both barrels from shotgun)
P.S. Said shotgun is loaded with peppercorns, in mistake for rocksalt.
Peppered behinds will, henceforth, abound!

"the band's monkey passes the tin cup"

Shameless exploitation of a fellow primate! Mind you, I didn't know that monkeys could drink so much. Worse than squids. Is that the correct plural or should it be squid?

Seems to be a lot of noise coming from the big round table in the middle, sounds mechanical. Oh no someone's let King Arthur and his knights in, or wait is it, yes, it's the Herga mummers on tour complete with clanking tankards.

Does that include my cousin, Carol?

Now your peppering everyone and everything has put tiny little holes in the woodwork. This would normally let woodworms in, but the pepper will keep them out. So I guess it's just a case of instant antiqueing of the place.

Don't forget though that I'm packin' two of Sam Colt's finest, both of 'em Walkers and I'm dead accurate with 'em. And this here star pinned to my chest gives me the authority to 'rest you.

(I really should pin that star to something besides my chest sometime, I think. It's actually quite painfull and fairly bloody.)

Jist remember the old story: One riot, one Ranger.
