It's Tuesday! That can only mean another Tory leader BeeX Zoom call, from 8. Over 102 supporters (unconfirmed).

We'll be in our hotel at Stansted this evening so may or may not be able to join depending on our movements.

Kids mainly, that is. Not bowels.

Like a disgraced and horrible Minister, our Zoom call is back after just a week. 8pm as usual.

We probably won't make it tonight either, things have been absolutely manic here the past few days and Jem's been flitting around all over the country so we need an evening of proper 'downtime'.

Still, if you'd still like some Gaz-sanctioned fun... this thread is for you!

Wifi and boiler problems needed my attention this evening, but it sounds like we might have not had enough for a quorum tonight anyway. Hopefully, normal service will be resumed next week.

Like being bitten by scorpion on TV, our Tuesday Zoom call is back before you've even noticed.

On from 8.

Hi everyone,

I was about to set up a space for tomorrow then realised it clashes with a couple of football games that might draw a bigger crowd (Iran v USA; England v Wales).

Do people want a call tomorrow or should we give it a miss*?

On a more general note, I've often said that I'm happy to keep these things going for as long as people want them. For a one-off thing during lockdown, it's lasted pretty well and I still enjoy them. Having something regular makes it easier for people to come and go as they feel like it rather than a fixed monthly/quarterly/Plutonian orbit that means if you miss one that's it for a while. I definitely want to have some over Christmas and into the New Year.

*there's probably a football joke in there somewhere but couldn't get the pitch right when I tried to tackle it.

I'm around, likely to just have the football on in the background, personally. But it is a perfectly fair reason to skip a week.

Yeah, I'll be watching the football, if the quiz is going on after the game is over, I will probably pop on for the last hour or so

Five sleeps to Christmas, so still time to get yourself onto that all-important Nice list. Alternatively, have a fun video call.

We're on Zoom from 8.

Great fun last night, thanks everyone.

As mentioned in my round, here's the Wikipedia page on Santa's Tomb. Perhaps something to keep in the back pocket if you want to traumatise young children, even though he probably didn't end up in County Kilkenny.

We may not be able to make it to any of the Tuesday night zooms now :(

Our TKD lesson now finishes at 20:30 so we won’t be sorted until around 21:00 once the kids are sorted and into bed.

I guess we can join for the second half though :)

After almost three years and just over 1,000 days we ended season 1 of BeeX Zoom Calls last night.

Thank you to everyone who's ever joined a call, written a round, or generally just aided making Tuesday nights that bit merrier.

We're keen to keep something like this going, but in a new form, as we've all enjoyed seeing each other outside of Cottage.

I too am sorry I had to start missing this on a Tuesday. I genuinely enjoyed seeing you all and I think it was a great idea from the get go. Thank you Kern for organising and hosting it.

Maybe a one off every now and again would be good? And let's now forget where it all began... Look at all those people!
