Things are quiet at the moment, but there are a few things to be aware of.
*Safety from sentient roombas is usually found on top of the bar.
*Pillows and marshmallows (aka weapons of war) are found behind the bar.
*Pool boys are available (and gorgeous).
*Pan-Galactic Gargle Blasters (hereinafter referred to as PGGBs) are a specialty of the house. Hazmat suits available upon request.
*Patrons have been know to break into spontaneous bouts of "Princess Bride" quotations. Participate at your own risk.

Great advice, Maggs! Stay away from the roombas, especially if they have "Morphy's" tattooed anywhere on their little, evil, metal bodies.

Apr 23, 2014, 2:50pm Top

>15 clamairy: Actually, I have an explanation for that one :) I'd been just starring threads that caught my eye so the high posting volume didn't overwhelm my quieter groups in my "recent posts" listing, but I realized recently that I was pretty much starring every thread anyways, so... why not be a real member instead of a loiterer?

Apr 23, 2014, 2:55pm Top

The Green Dragon has loiterers?

Apr 23, 2014, 3:03pm Top

>16 sandstone78: So make yourself comfortable and grab a PGGB. There may even still be some cheese somewhere if the regular locusts haven't eaten the lot.

*Gives >33 nrmay: secret Green Dragon handshake*

Roombas originated as robotic floor cleaning devices, but one of our members, Morphidea (also known as Morphy, or Mighty Morphy), has taken them to a whole new level with her evil plans to conquer the world. Avoid them. Trust me.

We are always glad when you can do what you can do to keep the Green Dragon a warm, and friendly place. Welcome each and every one of the new folks.

Let's spread out some cheeses and crackers and drinks all around.

Feb 5, 2015, 11:20am Top

Welcome all! I hope you will feel free to dive in and comment, the waters are friendly here. I wonder, is there an LT member named something like, "saucealot?" Because they should be friends with SirNoodle. I'm just saying. :)

One of my favorite things in this thread is reading all the creative names of new members. :D

I missed all those PBBGs that were being passed around. Can someone whip up another batch?

Welcome to The Green Dragon!

Feb 5, 2015, 6:58pm Top

Welcome to a friendly crowd, always ready to talk about what you're reading, what you're eating, and what makes you feel "stabbity". There are a few bug-eyed monsters in the pub, but like the water buffaloes, if you just shove them on over, you can make room to sit down.

Be careful on the personal reading threads. There are book bullets flying!

Feb 20, 2015, 12:05am Top

#34 Really, gjetost lovers are rare. When bringing it into a crowd, it gets better reception if you put it on a platter with caramels, mints, flavored yogurt, and hard candies, where uninitiated can be snookered into liking it before being told its a cheese. I also like stilton.

Feb 20, 2015, 11:38am Top

>50 Lace-Structures:

Gjetost also great served with pear and apple slices.
Thumbs up for stilton and any kind of blue cheese!

Feb 22, 2015, 8:15am Top

Blue cheeses of all sorts pair remarkably with PGGBs! A Green Dragon favorite.

Feb 23, 2015, 10:40am Top

Feb 23, 2015, 11:00am Top

Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters. The recipe here in the GD is not quite identical to that in theHitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, but the effects are often just as devastating.

Feb 23, 2015, 11:08am Top

>54 hfglen:

thanks, I very much needed to know that. Will seek out recipe . . .

Feb 24, 2015, 6:34pm Top

The hazmat suits are around here somewhere. Whoever is stirring up the PGGBs might need to wear one.

We need to find those Roombas. This place has gotten a little dusty. And is there a pitcher of PBBJs in the frig?

May 10, 2015, 1:25pm Top

Welcome to all!

May 11, 2015, 5:10am Top

Reminder: the canoe paddle is for stirring the vat of PGGB's, NOT for swatting the pink elephant currently disguised as a grey elephant. Doing so will mean having to sanitize the elephant.
Also, the SPIITING COBRAS are generally friendly, well, for SPITTING COBRAS, anyway.
The blue-footed boobies can naturally be found in the pool, except when they are doing things unnatural, which is really most of the time so don't bother looking for them in the pool, unless you need an excuse to harass the pool boys.
The Roombas generally behave if you place a beer on top of one and send it in search of a patron. Other than that, all bets are off.
Ohhh, and never throw a handful of mashed potatoes at anyone, LIKE THIS!!! *Lobs a fistful of spuds at maggie*

May 12, 2015, 6:54am Top

Oh! Look what I found: the marshmallow guns are hidden under the bar.

A PGGB, PBGG, ? I've totally lost my mind. But you knew that....

Jun 20, 2015, 3:59pm Top

I thought I'd better rattle the cage so the newcomers know that they should plow right in and have some fun with the roombas, the water buffalos and the BEM (bug-eyed monster).

Don't be shy! Comment on the reading threads, note what plans you have on the weekend in that particular thread (because we love hearing what you're doing), and make friends.

*opens door a bit wider and pushes the BEM back a bit*

Jun 20, 2015, 4:21pm Top

The BEM? I didn't know we had a BEM!!! How did I not notice the BEM?

Edited: Jun 20, 2015, 4:57pm Top

He's somewhat reluctant to push himself forward at least initially, but he can become rambunctious.

Jun 26, 2015, 10:23am Top

The Pool Boys help keep the BEM in line. Sometimes, the BEM has to keep the Pool Boys in line...

Jun 26, 2015, 9:50pm Top

I love when the Pool Boys get out of line.

Let's have some Adult Ice Tea.... what are the names of those things? Electric Ice?

Edited: Jun 12, 2016, 5:23am Top

Hi I'm Dusty, an avid fan of SF in the 60s,but lived for a decade in Africa,with no bookshops or libraries nearby. On return to UK I was disconcerted to see all the old classic authors of the 50s and 60s were no longer on the library shelves,instead all these HUGE fantasy volumes,including the depressing Stephen Donaldson and the ubiquitous Piers Anthony and Terry Brooks,and what little SF was there was cyberpunk etc.So I drifted away from the genre,(apart from Lois McMaster Bujold,Anne McCaffrey and C J Cherry of course)and it wasnt till 2012 I rediscovered the genre. I am steadily working my way through the Hugos (read49/64) and Nebulas (30/52) and love colonization and first contact novels,but still have a soft spot for the 40s and 50s stuff.
Also like UF(but not paranormalromance unless outstanding) and dip a toe occasionally in weird fiction
I am a shelfari refugee,and its been a traumatic year,since we all moved to Leafmarks only for it to be closing down too. Most of the time has been spent moving data setting up groups etc,and sadly my reading of spec fic is a bit down,less than 30 books read this year,rather low for me. Now the cataloguing and editing seem to be finally drawing to an end,so I look forward to reading more and also chatting to you all,you seem a great lot,and I forsee the TBR,already arranged as a tasteful double archway,likely to become a triple layer. Cant wait!

Jun 12, 2016, 8:46am Top

Welcome, dustydigger! Check out all of the personal reading threads; this is a fairly eclectic crowd in terms of reading materials and I'm sure you'll find one or two kindred souls whose selections are to your taste. Don't be shy about starting a personal reading thread of your own. It's always interesting to hear new voices.

I just discovered Lois McMaster Bujold myself, but have been a fan of C.J. Cherryh for awhile.

Jun 12, 2016, 8:47am Top

>109 dustydigger: Welcome! I love the tasteful double archway. :o)

You'll find many like minds here. Sorry you've been forced to move your virtual library around so much. I'm hopeful that LT will be here for the long haul. I share your opinion of Donaldson, BTW.

Make yourself at home. :o)

Jun 12, 2016, 11:04am Top

>109 dustydigger: So glad you found us! I left Shelfari a long time ago, but remember it as a lively and fun place. :) After you spend a bit of time poking around here, I'm sure you will find it to be terrific also. Oh, be careful if you poke far into the corners of the closets in the pub, there reside things like modified Roombas, snickering Smurfs and occasionally a SPITTING COBRA! ;)

Jun 12, 2016, 1:50pm Top

Hey! as long as you leave a bottle of my fave tipple,whisky, on the counter, I will def avoid the depths of the cupboards.I have had personal experience of being 5 feet away from a black mamba,quite small but very deadly,so I will leave the cobras to rule the roost.

Hi, everyone! Welcome. Pull up a chair and join the conversation.

>131 suitable1: How did you store them? I thought they were too corrosive to keep in containers made of any material known to humanity.

Dec 13, 2016, 11:06am Top

>133 SylviaC:

I think they are kept in an alternate universe.

>142 maggie1944: We're mostly good, I believe. I'm so sorry about your sweet dog. *big hugs*

Apr 12, 2017, 9:28pm Top

Thanks, Clam. I do miss the pup! And I'm not doing much reading. I think I'm going to back up a little bit from the 75 books group, as I'm not doing much reading. I'm reading dog rescue sites. Went and visited a rescue agency and saw three possible dogs. One of which I like a little bit. She needs a health check and is not yet quite available.

Anyway, I hope to see you all around here a bit, too.

Apr 12, 2017, 9:30pm Top

>144 maggie1944: Good luck with the dog search. I do hope you not only start reading again, but that you drop by The Dragon more often.

Apr 13, 2017, 4:19am Top

>144 maggie1944: I was just thinking about you this morning and realised you hadn't been around in a while. I hope you find the perfect dog to share your life with.
