Winning the hearts and minds

House of correction
It's a good look, isn't it? Liberation, American style at Rugrabbinmynuts, House of Bondage, Iraq. Dickbreath below has just posted what he calls an "essay" on Abu Grahib where he tries to excuse this outrageous behaviour of the Americans by describing the even more appalling torture that went on there under Saddam - kind of like "See, we're not half as bad".

And you wonder why you're losing whatever goodwill you had left in the world, America? More pictures here of how the Americans treat detainees - Oh give me a home, where the buffalo roam and the deer and the antelope play, where seldom is heard a discouraging word and the skies are not cloudy all day

Bar food isn't that bad - I was assuming we weren't eating in the Dome ;-)

Ah - Red Oak is fantastic - Really enjoyed that last time I went. Nice beer - wasn't to expensive and the brother and sister (I think) that run it were really very nice.

Oops, wrong one:

Besides, there are plenty of cheapish restos around if we get hungrier...

Meh. Not really into the arthouse, although it is the only one I know. And if it's cha-ching expensive it's even worse.

Thanks for all the offers of drink, but the other costs are still prohibitive and I'm still meh.

Arthouse, baby, Arthouse.
January 27, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterMrsJ
and when you find out let me know rob
January 27, 2006 | Unregistered Commentermushroom
Email away Mrs J....

And Chesty, the offer stands. I'll happily buy you a drink or two. And shout you the bus fare home as well!!
January 27, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterWCS
I'll push you home in that trolley la rue
January 27, 2006 | Unregistered Commentermushroom
I couldn't give a toss where we go as long as the beer is cold.
What about a simple pub to keep the cost down?
January 27, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterRob Byrnes
Arthouse it is then. I will email those I have emails for.

I'm off work at 5:30 so can be there by 5:45 or so...

Everyone got it now?

I mean there are dodgy hotels further down Pitt we can venture to, but no food I think....

If we want really cheap, we can hit Scruffy Murphy's ;-)

January 27, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterWCS
Cool, I'm all for a blog meet-up, even with boys, but next week, and thursday in particluar, is probably just not going to happen - as much as paranoia dictates I don't want you folk dicussing me when I'm not around ...

And you're not alone, guys, have had to push back other plans for similar financial reasons also.

10-4 on that, over.
January 27, 2006 | Unregistered Commentermushroom
I hate the arthouse, too (sorry, MrsJ ... I have a bogan ex who hangs about there and worked on the design of it and I think its pretension personified (or something))

Scruffys is even worse. barf!
January 27, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterC LaRue
Affirm, arthouse it is, topic of the night, Chesty LaRue.
Done and Done!
