We won’t make it this evening unfortunately. I’m not having the best of days and although socialising with you crazy lot would probably do me the world of good, I don’t think I have the capacity for it tonight :/

Have a good one!

If I was doing a quiz round, where the answers were songs with Thomas the Tank Engine Characters in (say), would you be happy on the answer screen, with just the name of the song (and perhaps the lyric with the character in), or would you want to hear the song with the Thomas the Tank Engine Character being sung?

(I am not doing such a quiz round, but I am now tempted to do one...)

It's better, I think, to hear a bit of the song. Unless it makes it seem incredibly easy (and it probably won't), it really brings it to life. Either way, if you don't know the song you're a bit stuffed, but at least when you hear it, you can't just fail to recognise it because you know the song but not the title.

As far as I can tell Robert Smith does not have a brother in The Cure, so I don't know what I was thinking of last night, but that other guy really looked him!

Hi everyone,

I'm not around tonight due to hilarious misunderstandings but I've set up a space anyway for those who want it. Please stack the chairs and turn the lights out when you're done.

Should be back next week.

As I've said before, I'm happy to keep these going for as long as people want them. It's become quite a fixed point in my diary now.

It's Tuesday, I've nothing on, and last night Team GB got relegated from the top flight of world ice hockey, so let's have another Zoom.

Link in the usual place.

Jem and I probably won't be there tonight -- neither of us have had a particularly good time of things over the past few days and we're all over the shop a bit, so we're just gonna try and regroup a bit. Have a good one though, guys!

As an alternative to the quiz I watched the football.

Double disappointment

Yeah, turns out that we didn't have any access to a video-conferencing platform that wouldn't kick us off after 30-40 minutes.

So it kicked you off 10 minutes before the meeting started!!!!

Sounds completely useless.

I don't think we're going to make this tonight, I've had some weird stuff going on with my jaw for a few days that's led to some less than ideal nights sleep, so we could do with an early night.

I'm doubtful for this Tuesday, it's my eldest's birthday, so will probably be doing something with him.

It's another hot day so it's safer to stay inside and drink. Zoom from 8 tonight.

Afraid I might not be on - depends how wilted I'm feeling by the evening.

Just realised that the Euros semi final is on at the same time as this, so I'll probably end up missing this.

Sorry guys
