Well I visited the shop again today and I used the requested QI Forum member greeting of:

..which was met with apparent incomprehension from the young lady serving me. In fact I think she might have been a bit taken aback by my use of the word “bloody” in which case, can you please explain to her and pass on my apologies if she was offended.

Ha Ha, that would have been either Kathrine or Barbara. You should have asked for the funny accented man. What did you think of it? Did you buy a book? Did you have a drink in the bar? Dammit man, so many questions, so little time, let us know....

Funny, I've always thought of Sapientum as a woman, only with sideburns. That's aliasses for you.

Oh, I don't actually know. I only used the word 'Man' in a way that only I am capable of doing. The completely wrong way. Sapi, who are you, man? woman?

Jenny, your guardian friend UNI came in to the bookshop today. She seemed a bit miffed that Carson McCullers was in Suburbia. But was unable to suggest another appropriate place for it to be put in.

Oh that's funny! I'm glad she found her way in there - she's a thoroughly delightful person, and I'm hoping to see her when I come over in December (combining with a visit to your good selves at the book shop of course).

Well, no-one has ever asked me for some bloody service, so that means it must have been Barbara. (Incidentally, my name is spelt with a C, which is infinitely superior.)

I first read that as "lap dancing" and was tempted to give it a visit next time I was in Oxford.
