 The Nip Nirvana Lounge


Melvyn's Birthday Rave  ©BionicBasil® The Nip Nirvirna Lounge


Welcome to our nightclub on Level 11 of the Bunker; The Nip Nirvana Lounge and our seventh cat rave. Amber was banned from being in charge of the bar, as she’s such a liability (aka old lush) and takes too long to serve the drinks because she has to try everything. So, if mew need any assistance just ask Snowie or Posie and they can mix mew whatever mew want. 

If mew need any extra snacks while in The Nip Nirvana Lounge, just ask Humphrey for a look at the menu, as he reckons his A.I. Replicator machine can cook up anything mew like, and just tap your order in on the screen at the bar, and the kitty-droids will be with mew imminently. 

Parsley and Pandora have set up another most epic 90's and early 00's playlist of all the best dance tracks from way back in the day when mewsic was extraordinarily epic. 

It looks like Fudge has had one Mindbender Blueberry nip cocktail too many and, I'm back in my 90's epically epic diehard raver get-up, as I just love that era! MOL 

If mew want to partake in any nip, all varieties are available, including some of our homegrown primo-fur-fluffer; and our latest home-grown release is the White Cheetah Mix, it's a new strain that makes mew dance really fast, Basil tried some earlier and before he know it he’d danced all the way up to level two and back again before anypawdy even noticed! MOL

Smooch has set the hubbly-bubbly pipes up just around the corner from the dance floor. There are oodles of huge floor cushions enough for everypawdy to get sprawled out on.  

Litter cubicles are in the entrance foyer, gurls use the door on the left and boys the door on the right, and whatever mew don't go wandering around the bunker as we don't want anypawdy getting lost!  

And on that note, I'm headed to the bar. Who wants a nip cocktail?


The give-way is open wurld-wide** as usual, and all mew have to do is leave a comment below OR on Melvyn's Birthday Instagram post. We'll do the draw fur the winner next Monday at 5pm, so mew have until then to enter, and we'll post the winner on the next post we share. So remember to come back!

And what's the prize, we hear mew ask?

Well, as all our pawesome regulars know, our giveaways are epically epic, and we like to surprise mew with a little goodie bag with delightful things for mew and your hooman.

We have one goodie bag to give-away

[**Unless mew're in one of those countries that aren't allowed to join in. Mew know who mew are.]


Prizes are as stated, and no substitutes or cash prizes will be substituted.  The rules are clear, so purrlease abide by them. Failure to respond within
14 days of notification will result in your prize being offered to someone else.

We do hope mew all have an EPIC time at the rave, and if mew need to chill, we have allocated the Crystal Room as the zen-zone which is now located next to the nightclub; just head back out into the corridor, take a left and it's the next door along, so mew can have a snooze, take five or just crash completely.

Thanks for coming, mew know how much we love to pawty with all our supurr besties!

Melvyn xx

Amber wasn't happy when Melvyn kept interrupting her photo shoot for book review #110 Cat Songs, so she gave him a boop on the snoot!

She takes no prisoners at all.

And finally 

Pandora's Scramble Over The Back of The Bench

The P.A. wanted to know what the fluff was happening here?

Pandora replied, "This is part of The B Team assault course around BBHQ, next I will crawl through the undergrowth on my tummy!" 

And what can mew say to that? MOL

This week we're also joining in Friday Fill-ins with the fabulous 15 & Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs.
1. A fashion trend that I hope never returns is ______________________________.
2. A fashion trend I wouldn’t mind coming back in style is ________________________.
3. I think _________ is superior to _________.
4. When a new month rolls around, I _________.

The P.A.'s answers are...

1. A fashion trend that I hope never returns is those totally ludicrous, ridiculously high platform shoes aka stripper shoes. While absolutely perfectly perfect for stage performing etc, in real-life walking on uneven pavements, climbing stairs, and just moving around in them is highly dangerous. I call this type of shoe an ankle breaker, and no I have never owned a pair.

2. A fashion trend I wouldn’t mind coming back in style is anything that's stylish, classic and can be worn for years - I like sustainability, not this fast fashion for a photo and then let's get something else new to feed our feed. The wanton consumerism that has taken over the planet in recent times is outstanding and the waste is horrific. I still wear things I purchased 30+ years ago, but then I like to be different, I have my own fashion rules, and they are, if I like it I wear it and fluff what anyone thinks. 

3. I think chocolate fudge cake with frosting and chocolate chips is superior to a plain chocolate cake! LOL

4. When a new month rolls around, I always say white rabbits three times. When I was in primary school my teacher, Mrs Oates told me about the saying, explaining that it supposedly brings good luck for the month ahead. So every first day of the new month, pretty much since the age of 8, I've said white rabbits three times upon waking. Not that I'm really superstitious, I think it's more of a habit. 


We do hope mew enjoyed today's fluffers and we'll be back next Friyay with more funny photos.

Join us again on Sunday when we're here with our usual selfie selection, in the meantime...

Keep calm, and purr on

Welcome to The BBHQ Midweek News Round-Up ~ Follow The Floof Some More with Fudge, Hanging Out In The Garden with Parsley AND Melvyn's Doing A Spot Of Burd Watching **PLUS** BBHQ Q&A

MidWeek News Round Up with The B Team ©BionicBasil®2022

 Epic Greetings Furiends

Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

We'll be sharing the winner of Fudge's epic birthday giveaway on Friday's post, so stay tuned to see if it is mew. 

And mew might remember on Sunday's post we mentioned that we were transplanting a few seedlings, well we planned on watching while the P.A. did all the work and transplanting! MOL

Here's a snap of some of the self-set seedlings prior to being moved.

The Midweek News Round-up at BBHQ ©BionicBasil®  Self Set Plants in The Courtyard
Some of the plants are tiny, like the lavender, they are not even 1 cm or 1/2 inch tall, so they have to be extracted with much care. The good news is they are now in pots or other places around the garden which we'll share next week.

First up in the news this week

Hanging Out In The Garden with Parsley

Parsley is such a reliable dude, he always stays in the garden and loves reclining on the mill-wheels just watching the wildlife, buglife and birdlife go by. 

The Midweek News Round-Up at BBHQ ©BionicBasil® Hanging Out In The Garden with Parsley

Sometimes he hides in the border, and he's completely undetectable when he goes into his full Purredator mode.

He laughed himself silly the other day as the P.A. was looking for him for an hour, and she'd walked by his hiding place half a dozen times and didn't seen him until he finally decide to uncloak and appear as if by magic in front of her. 

The P.A. did mutter a couple of unspeakables as he made her really late for work. 

Finally this week

Melvyn's Doing A Spot Of Burd Watching

Melvyn doesn't get out in the garden very much these days as he's a total liability. So when he does go outside he's heavily snoopervised in case he decides to take a little unauthorised trip around the village again.

The Midweek News Round-Up at BBHQ ©BionicBasil® Melvyn's Doing A Spot Of Burd Watching

Anyhoo, he did enjoy his last outing a few days ago and he loved watching all the burds at the burd-feeder squabbling over the seed.

He was literally transfixed by them! MOL

BBHQ Q&A Banner ©BionicBasil®
If mew have any questions for us, about anything, ask away and we'll answer on next week's post.

Plus we'll also answer any questions left in the comments over the last few days in this section too.

Memories of Eric and Flynn asked on last week's News Round-Up: 

 Fudge what happened to that tuft of fur on your left shoulder, day 4?

Fudge says, "Well it's a really funny story, and if mew haven't seen the aforementioned tuft, click the day 4 link above and check it out on TikTok! Now I'll tell mew about the tuft, when I first arrived at BBHQ way, way back in the day and the P.A. released me from the carrier into the downstairs office, she noticed that same tuft sticking up and she thought it was some loose fur and tried to pull it off. It didn't come off because it is furrmly attached to my purrson. It is actually located in the centre of my back between my shoulder blades, and it has some long, whiskery strands supported by a floofy tuft, I like to think of it as a special antenna of sorts, a magical extension if mew will, anyhoo I can tell mew this it is very sensitive to touch!" MOL MOL 

I hope that answers your question.

That's us done for today, though we will be back on Friday with the first Friday Fluffers of the current season, and if mew missed Monday's post click here to catch up on our epically epic 10-year blogoversary celebration!
