Deck the halls with, err, pumpkins and fake cobwebs.

No, wait. That's next month.

Narrowly missing both the annual "Burn the effigy of a Catholic" fest 
*and* the chance to been Thursday the first and thus level up to be a 
Heretics Meet (aligned Neutral/Chaos, gains +4 flagon of Inebriation), 
the November Social AMBUSHES us like a sneaky Tiger. Albeit a sneaky 
tiger that's utterly predictable in its movements.

This month we're going back to The Windmill - mainly because I crave 
pie, Hot Pimms and Double Chocolate stout ... not necessarily in that 


Due to unforseen problems (namely, not being within 6000 miles of 
London) I've missed at least the last 2 Socials so I shall there, nice 
and early full of vim, vigour and the usual witty bandinage. Come! See 
what working from home for a month does to a man. 

Now the standard blurb ...                                                         

  Social meetings are a chance for people to meet up face to face for a            
  quiet drink (alcoholic or not) A fair chunk of Perl is talked at the             
  meetings, but also people who have no interest in the language often             
  pop along to socialise.  There's no charge to enter, no agenda, and we           
  tend to think of it more as pleasant drinks rather than any serious              
  People normally turn up after work, and many stay until closing time.            
  Food is normally consumed at the pub by those wanting nourishment                
  though sometimes small groups of people head off for food either                 
  during or after the meeting.                                                     

Directions from Oxford Circus

  Walk south out of the tube station onto Regent Street (not onto Oxford 
  Street and directly away from the church). After about 200m, turn 
  right down Conduit Street (roughly opposite Hamley's) and then turn 
  right again down a smaller road called Mill Street, where you'll find 
  the pub. Directions from Piccadilly Circus

  Turn east (left) out of the station, and walk for about two hundred

  Conduit Street on your right. Walk down here, and take the second left 
  down a smaller road called Mill Street, where you'll find the pub.
