Although I'm not familiar with its actual origin, Tallulah is the name of the main character's cross-dressing father in The Story.

Well, I know several people who are going to be doctors and they terrify me. Mostly the idea of them operating on people when I've seen them incapable of negotiating a kerb scares me.

Give us a clue, at least. What sort of music was it?

*Fails to comment on the song, as he's not actually quite sure whether we're talking about Hakuna Mattata any more or not*

My best mates brothers training to be a surgeon/doctor the thought completely terrifies me as I know what he's like attempting to cook and slice vegetables and stuff...
*makes mental note never to go to his practice*

Ok the name was vaguely French sounding and given that you know my name you should be able to work out the first of it but as you don't know my full name you'll not be able to get the rest of it which is the worst bit and is the part which switches it to a decidedly dodgy namesmiley - biggrin

Oh and I wasn't singing the Lion King thing other than the first line, the rest was just the pub song but someone must know it...
*looks desperate*
You all sit on the floor in a big long line and dance?!? smiley - erm

At least one med student missed a sink recently and has therefore been barred from Bar 38 in the city centre.

Too cryptic a clue, give us something easier to work with.

We Are Sailing? They sat on the floor in a big long line and danced to that in Men Behaving Badly.

The Story. From the Gam Room Storytellers. http://www.h2g2.com/A255007 It's sort of a continuing storyline with a really large number of authors who just pop in and write a bit when they have time, and, as a consequence, cause the story to make very little sense. Entertaining though.

Aaaaha, that storysmiley - biggrin

How much more of a clue do you need? There's not many obvious French variations on Fiona, and then you take my middle name which is technically thr end of my first name but no-ones used that since I was about 6 and stick a 'le' in front of it. Honestlysmiley - biggrin

Wasn't that we are kneeling? You must have done the drunken dance, it can't just be a Sheffield thing...there are photos of us dancing to it, all sat on the floor in a big long line waving barcardi bottles and singing?

That story? It only happened on Tuesday night.

Finnetre? Actually that would be "la". Since I have not the faintest idea what this middle-ish name is, that's not terribly helpful smiley - biggrin

They kneel outside the pub, but sail inside it. The only other one I can think of is the music man, although that's more fun standing up as otherwise you can't do the bagpipes or Dambusters dances properly.

Not being familiar at all with pubs or dancing, I'd have to say that I haven't the slightest idea what either of you are talking about. But you clearly do, so I'll just leave it at that. Know what you're talking about, I mean. Knowing what the other is talking about is a different story altogether. Or maybe it's the same, if you take a holistic view of things.

No you're quite right I have no idea what either of us are talking about half the time eithersmiley - biggrin

Oh for goodness sake it's not like there's many tacky fake French names to pick from and it's far too much fun watching you try to work it out so I'm still not telling you (that and it's highly embarassing)... and it's definitely 'le' as it says so on the video creditssmiley - biggrin

I know they kneel outside but that's when the main singing takes place and it's distinctly not either of those songs...I have photo's to prove I'm not talking complete gibberish y'knowsmiley - biggrin

I count myself lucky if I know what one of us is talking about at any one time. smiley - erm

Maybe it's a French word they didn't teach us at school. Anyway, I'm pointedly not guessing until you relent and give a better clue.

I'm not sure how a photo would prove that... smiley - winkeye

Maybe lucky's the wrong word though? Quite often I'm talking such waffle that it's not really lucky to understand it...maybe worryingsmiley - winkeye

Oh this is silly you're just not tryingsmiley - winkeye Right then, take my name, take the shortened form then double it? Come on you must be able to cope with that clue smiley - smiley

And a photo would so prove it because then you'd see a great big long line of a load of people sitting on the floor dancing and waving bottles of drink which would prove that the dance does exist and I'm not just making it up to confuse everyonesmiley - biggrin

It probably helps the conversation to continue, but then lack of understanding doesn't seem to have stopped us so far.

Okay, okay, Le Fifi something or other. I'll have you know that I nearly finished the Observer crossword yesterday. Well, half-finished, nearly. Possibly a third. ish. smiley - smiley

Ah. Well I suppose that would prove something, but we still don't know what dance it is.

I like that...though it does sound like someone's trying to call their cat inside the house at night or somethingsmiley - winkeye

It possibly helps as if we understood each other then we might just be more confusedsmiley - winkeye

*grins*
No, no the 'le' is after the fifi smiley - smiley The quick crossword or the real one? smiley - winkeye

We're trying to think of the dance? I know how to do the dance I just can't remember the songsmiley - smiley

Our cat would be more likely to respond to "food-food"

I'm cofussed anyway. smiley - erm (and I like that smiley)

OK, Fifi le ...
I'm sure that sounds familiar. Was there someone famous called that? The real crossword, of course. I only do quick when it's the Torygraph and I can figure out the appalling pun in the first two across (e.g. Injure Notion) smiley - yuk

I don't know either. Perhaps if you described the dance, one of us might know the song.

Yeah but if you shouted 'food-food' out of your door, there'd be hundreds of people turning up to get free food so that'd be a problemsmiley - smiley

Confusion's good sometimes, it distracts from understanding which can often be a bad thing...

*grins*
Yes mesmiley - winkeye

OK I'm impressed with the real one, I've half finished that about twice but then it's just far too complex...I can only cope with the quick crosswordssmiley - smiley

*sits down on the floor*
Did you ever go to Brownies as it's kind of like a Brownie ladder to start with but I suspect they don't do games like that in Scouts so you probably have no idea what I'm on about but never mind... Well you all sit in a long line like that then you whack your hands to the left, to the right then up to the middle and clap...then people randomly fall over and it kind of ends after a fashion...

That's true. Fortunately Freda doesn't normally have to be called for at meal times, indeed she often reminds us.

Hmmm, I can see I'm not going to get very far with that line of questioning. smiley - smiley

Oddly, no, I never did, though I think I have seen that dance somewhere, I'll have to think about it.

I bet she doesn't bounce up and down on your head until you feed her though...
*wonders how one small kitten can be so loud at 5am*

It's ok I'm using my middle/first name extension now, it's Anne smiley - smiley

Course you've seen the dance before, everyone does it...
*coughs*
Maybe you were at our 6th form leaving ball? The sight of many very drunk people in very expensive ball gowns and tuxedos all lying on the floor doing that dance will last with me for a long time...
*grins*
As will the photos but they will remain hidden as I wasn't taking them so theres many of me too smiley - smiley
