Midnight Pub

Return from an Absence


Isn't it nice, after having been away for some time, whether relatively short, or perhaps far too long, to return to a familiar spot, to see the familiar features, greet familiar faces, and find that, all and all, nothing much has changed?

I disappeared from the pub for the better part of the past week and a half because out in the non-virtual realms I was getting to see my brother and mother in person for the first time in over two years. With them I visited a number of actual phys-space bars and pubs and drank decidedly delicious beers. It was the first time, since the plague age began that I felt like I was slightly living a real life again. It was great. We went to a number of spots I had not been to since some time in 2019, which, despite only being two years, or so, ago, feels ages away.

And now I return here, a relatively short time later, and find this Pub as comforting and familiar as I last left it.

How has June been treating y'all so far?


Been going great for me. Just work'n, podcasting and listening to vinyl.



Nothing to report here. Great that your finally got to see family. Welcome back :)



Hello ~fungmungus, good to see you back.

June has treated me very well:

So life is definitely good for me.

~bartender? One of those dark beers for me, please. Not Guiness though, that's not my world, sorry. Kröstizer maybe, or Köstritzer, or even a Schwabenbräu Das Schwarze, unless the godesses of the supply chain are having their own ideas :-)

And whatever ~fungmungus is up to on my order, please. Thank you!
