    It has been brought to my attention by a friendly little Admin, that FF forums are all about socialising and making friends!


    Well, the Mandalore Dump is our offical comedy thread, the 'single word's only' thread the stupid silliness thread, and the madlib the creative thread.

    But we are without a true, fair dinkum Social Thread!

    SO once agian your friends from 'The Mandalore Dump' (remember to keep reading our posts for enlightenment, and don't be afraid to post yourself, we need special guests to interview!) have stepped in to save the day.

    Welcome to the Big V Bar and Local, VictoriaFF's official social and cyber-drinking thread.

    Come in, put your feet up, and have a brew.

    Your Bartender's are as follows.

    Jet-Eye - Ex-pat aussie living in France, due back here in oz within the week. A true blue victorian!
    Protege-of-Thrawn - Yes, the other half of the Mandalore team, PoT is continuing to serve his state with pride, passion and excitement!!
    BobaMyHelperMonkey - this cute little critter is loved by all, despite his curious deployment of bowel movements. Always high brow conversation with this fella.

    4th spot..????- Yes, the forth bartender spot is open, and will be awarded to whoever proves to be the a)most prolific Victorian poster in this thread, and b)the most drunk poster.

    Good Luck everyone.


    And to our interstate friends, THIS is the spot to pop by and say hello in, your always welcome!!


    Enjoy the social chats, some role playing, and having a nice cold drink (or warm, whatever's your preference!)


    Kudos goes to my Mandalore buddy J.E,
    And ALL you Victorian's out there!

    Let the drinking begin!!

    PoT.

    Bonjour Monsieur (ou Madame, depending on your gender, but bloody hell, if there are females here that's an indication of my utter lazyness to this whole scheme), comment t'allez vous? Bienvenue à la Pub de Mandalore! Et sil vous plait, boire beaucoup!

    All you need to know is this; that last part said "and please drink a lot" and also, the french are in the know of what's good wine and what's not. If you've got fish on the menu, I suggest a Burygoune Blanc, year 1990. But if you're a fellow carnivore (god bless you) a Bordeaux is definitely the wine to drink. But hell, this is the VB bar ain't it, so what the fekin hell am I rambling on about!

    So as one of your bartenders (?) feel free to ask me any questions on wine and i will most likely fail on giving you the right wine to drink, so then again, i prefer it if you didn't ask me any questions about wine. Period.

    But what I do know is that a Burboun-Coke after a hard day's marching in, ahem, Paris, really does the trick! Ha, and I'm 17! Didn't ask for an ID, the bright spark!

    So what are our proud, excited, motivated and last of all GREAT Victorians fond of in terms of drink?

    Wazyu talkin 'bout, I'm plenny drunk...

    Okay, so I'm not. It's 2:15 PM, you expect to be smashed this early? :) I can be a prolific poster though, nowhere near the standards of PoT, JE and that monkey thing but I'll try, that's what this great state is about after all.

    Shamelessly copies Lord Bane with a dramatic entrance through a rip in the space time continuum.

    That Monkey thing? LOL! I'll tell him that, he'll be here later.

    **Passes a Carlton Cold up to Adakin, and smiles as Hawk enters**

    Howdy stranger! I'll give the other bartending position within a week or two, when i get a better idea of who suits.

    Strikes me you would be a good choice though.

    Do you want a drink? Btw, if anyone is ordering a beer, please specify what type and brand. I had to guess with Adakin.

    Boba will be back in later to handle your thirsting needs, so stay tuned!

    *Pulls up a bar-stool*

    I'll do the typical Victorian girly thing and try to act sophisticated by asking for a glass of chardonnay.

    Okay, it's usually just a house special and tastes like sheep p*ss, but it comes in a classy wine glass! You see, that way I can pretend to be a high class chick while falling around drunk, laughing far too loud, and failing to notice my skirt tucked into the back of my knickers for most of the night. Oh what fun!

    Yeah, it's a new procedure called 'Reverse Cloning'. Scientists have secretly gathered cell samples from hundreds of bush-pigs, scrubbers and general yobbettes from around the country and have produced a woman (using the term loosely) with amazing powers. The power to out-curse a warfie, the power to out-drink a truckie and the amazing power to out-stink roadkill.

    Unfortunately she got killed in a bizarre lawnmowing accident, so they made me out of the left-overs. :D

    Give's ya a what?

    Listen pal, we only sell beer, goon, or spirits here...and I ain't never heard of that drink.

    Leans over bar

    Can I interest you in a scotch perhaps? Or a nice cold beer?

    How's about you pull up a stool, rest a while, and take a considerable load off your feet.

    What'll it be?

    Whyren's Reserve is a Corellian Whiskey mentioned in the X-wing books.

    Oh. Okay. Fine. Thought I'd help ya out. Give you the opportunity to order in some fine intergalactic spirits to perk up the locals, but okay. If you want to be earth-centric that's your call. Fine. No worries. [face_plain]
    </whisper>

    Can i have a Romulan Ale then? :D

    Not bad. General admission price has gone up 5 bucks since last year though, that sucks. It seems the country has been invaded by Swedish, there were hundreds of them in Vodafone Arena. 'Twas scary, all those drunk blue and yellow people...

    Hey, PoT, is it safe to turn off the ventilator and life support equipment? Do you think the state will manage to breath on its own without it?

    Hello All!

    DON'T TOUCH THAT EQUIPMENT!! Without it, I will have to administer CPR to keep her breathing, and as much as I love Victoria - as you all very well know by now - Just imagine what I might catch? [face_plain]

    Anyhoo, call me barney, call me anything. Yeah we do Pints, as that Z girl said, (can never spell your name, so I won't even try) We do anything.

    How are you all? Proud to be a Vic? go and post in Mandalore you lot!!
