Any pie in this joint? I could really use some strawberry-rhubarb.

hello the Panda! We definitely did miss you. Eucalyptus tea sounds fabulous even if I can't spell it.

I need some soothing calming thing because I'm bouncing off the walls tonight! It's like stage fright or something.

I need a large shot of something! (and I just broke a nail...how girly was that? LOL)

Did someone mention pie? Rhubarb and starwberry sounds good, but my favourite is lemon meringue! I'm told I do a mean apple crumble.

Decaf only for Josie!

Hello! A large one for me!
I'm back from the hospital and happy-ish, i have significantly improved (hurray!) but not enough yet to get my driving license back...BOO!

I've been having some technical difficulties with my connection, or it could be something to do with the changes on the site...who knows...so I might get cut off in my prime...tra...la...lah

French silk? They do 'pie' flavoured underwear?!?

I've heard of edible underwear but if it were pie flavoured then it might be a bit off-putting! How about a cornish pastie crotch? ew

Trying to stay de-caffienated this afternoon, but not succeeding.

Glad you're feeling better The Panda!

Must be an American thing... It's Chocolate cream pie with whipped cream and chocolate shavings on top. Yum!!

Edible underwear... that sounds disgusting...

Large cap with shavings, no pie...

While you are all sipping your coffee, can you suggest risque books a 14 year old adolescent boy perhaps shouldn't read? I thought of Lolita...

Now 'Chocolate cream pie' I can go for...why do they call it french silk?
I totally agree edible underwear does sound disgusting. However I believe there is a market for it in some circles LOL

Josie...I'll never eat a cornish pastie again!

Peter...are you asking me what fourteen year old boys shouldn't read? Or the question generally? LOL

I'm just reminising about Saturday night when I gave the bouncer at one of the bars we went to a mouthful. The guys that went in before us (us=girls - older, lots), he checked their ID's, when I said I'd taken the huff that he didn't ask me for my ID...He said, "Go on then how old?" and in my tiddly state said, "Ohh, they have to be a least eighteen."

I'm a disgraceful old woman, who needs bromide in her next cup of coffee

Takes large gulp from his Capo, and with frothy moustache looks at Panda,

"When in your tiddly state (brilliant rejoinder by the way), what literary classics would you suggest a 14 year old should read?"

Lady Chatterley’s Lover, except he’ll be disappointed, lol. Anything by Anais Nin. These are classics and timeless in their references. If you referred to something that was modern then it would fast become dated.

What was eighteen, Panda? Did I miss something?

I’m sorry about the Cornish pastie comment. Thing is, I can’t help thinking of pie as savoury (pork pie for lunch today, yummy!) but I know that in America it’s often as not sweet. Apple Pie and all that.

By the way, have you noticed I’m getting stamp-happy! I love it, the power mwahaha. Okay, I know I have to be careful, just joking honest.

Do you know how to work those machines, Kitty? They look scary to me, all that hissing etc. Dang, I wish you were nearer to me so I could get free coffee.

Mmmm, cheesecake. I could go for some of that.

How about The Sound and the Fury? Definitely Lolita. And maybe The Portrait of a Lady.

Thanks for your suggestions.

For now, just to fill in the blank page I went for Catch 22, Lady Chatterley's Lover, The Go-Between, and A Night in a Turkish Hareem.

Ah shucks (as you over the ponders would say).

I will just have to go back to Las Vegas and revisit the cheese cake emporium I found there. 200 plus varieties if I recall. Anyone know what it is called? Oh, and you could choose from an infinite number of coffees as well...

One chai tea coming up...do you want extra cinnimon?

I'm starving...a hear a cheese and onion pastie calling me from across the street...woman cannot live on caffine and jaffa cakes alone!

But If I go out...I'll murder the fluteman, who is currently murdering 'Walking in the air' with snippets of 'Nellie the elephant' intermingled with it...when you're shopping buskers are colourful additions to the atmosphere. When you work there...it's just torture...4 hours twenty-two minutes and counting...argh!

I always thought a pastie was something strippers wore to cover their nipples. Cheese and onion flavored pasties doesn't seem right in that context, does it?

I think it's similar to a pastry. Let's let the panda tell us!

Oh, and while I'm here I would love a frothy glass of milk and a huge chocolate brownie. Could you drizzle hot fudge over the top? Mmmmmm. . .

haha, I love all this cultural food confusion! A pastie, my friends, is an individual savoury pie that is folded over, usually in a half-moon shape. You may call it a pastry, but to us a pastry is sweet, a Danish pastry which I suppose you might call a ‘Danish’. Ah, the wonders of cultural differences. If someone asked me if I wanted a Danish I’d think they were offering me bacon. Ho hum.

As for the things that cover strippers nipples, I can’t even begin to think about that!
