For those with nothing better to do on Thursday

In a pitiful attempt to ape Dale & Fawkes, fellow bloggers and regulars are invited to join Newmania and me as we hold court ourselves open to ridicule in Croydon's finest gastropub, the Glamorgan this Thursday for an evening's drinking and breeze shooting. I might even stand people the odd drink. The pub is five minutes walk from East Croydon station, and the station is all of 15 or so from Victoria.

Aha to late I see . Well then let me add that I do not wish to ape anyone , hold court or indeed do anything beyond have a beer in the usual way.
I am a mere poster and have less than no interest in being well known or anything like that.

Just trying to get the jump on the inevitable mockery N....  

Anonymous Ellee said... 2:07 pm

What a great idea, though unfortunately I can't make it, but do have one or two on me though.

And merry Xmas to you and all your great, enthusiastic, witty, charming, sophisticated and intelligent commentators.  

Blogger Newmania said... 2:37 pm

She`s talking about me C and might also have added devastatingly handsome and possesed of terrifying sexual magnetism . Come to my flame little Ellee-moth ...come to my flame.

Mr mania
you are like one of those angler fish , just sat there dangling your bait before you pounce.
Watch out Elle he is a predator (+:  

Blogger Croydonian said... 3:09 pm

N - what will Mrs N say? Come to that, I imagine Mr Ellee is protective of his wife's honour.  

Blogger Newmania said... 3:32 pm

Good point C . OK Elle I release you , I know it will be difficult to go on but you can never have me . I must forever be an unattainable vision of male beauty .

I `m so sorry

Wish I could be there, but the feudal lord said no.  

Blogger istanbultory said... 4:33 pm

Wish I could be there too...alas, the Mohammedans have detained me here over Winterval.  

Blogger Croydonian said... 5:26 pm

Should any of you fine folk find yourselves in the Great Wen in the future, I can generally be relied upon to leave my Croydon eyrie when there is the prospect of a few drinks and some decent company.  

Anonymous vikki said... 5:26 pm

Wish I could be there also but just took the veil.....

I would have liked to have turned up just to look at Conservatives and see if they really do have residual tails.

I don't miss Croydon even though I spent a happy two years there.

Have a good evening.  

Blogger Croydonian said... 6:03 pm

WW - I imagine you have an actual tail, as chasing voles without that as a counterbalance would be a bit of a struggle. Cheers anyway.

Hey C, if I'm back in civilisation - or at any rate, transiting E.Croydon... by Thurs evening, do I count as a regular yet? (grovels piteously).

I shall be the one dressed as John Betjeman.  

Blogger Croydonian said... 6:29 pm

Nick - absolutely. See you there I hope. Kick off is 6.30 ish.  

Anonymous verity said... 6:42 pm

I wish I could be there,Croydonian, but I've promised to stop by Moammar Kdaffi's pad with a bottle of champers.

Blogger Croydonian said... 9:28 am

James - LGW is quite convenient...  

Anonymous Anonymous said... 12:16 pm

Blogger Croydonian said... 12:24 pm

CU - excellent. See you there. Given that my avatar isn't very helpful as an identifier, I'm the chap in the checked shirt in Ellee's photo gallery.  

Anonymous Anonymous said... 1:45 pm

C is easy to recognise from what I have heard all you need to do is suggest that it may be somebodies round , you can spot C as the bloke that sprints for the gents

Wish I could make it this Thursday, but I shall be introducing a Spanish friend to the great British institution of pantio! Hope there is a re-match early in the New Year.
