Tea / Coffee Etiquette

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A question for those of you who out-jack me.

    Regarding coffee, a Whoopi Goldberg is served black with no sugar. A Julie Andrews is served with milk and no sugar, from their Nunnery exploits. NATO Standard is milk and 2.

    Are there phrases for the intervening milk and sugar variables?

    A "Louise" = white one (cf. Louise Nurding/Redknapp, the 'white one' from the girl band 'Eternal').
  3. I always thought a Julie Andrews was white with 1 sugar. From the song I guess, a spoonful fo sugar etc.
  4. Julie Andrews - White Nun (none)
  5. I like my coffee like I like my men.

    Hot and wet.

    Politically incorrect on many levels, of course, but I seem to remember a "White, One" became known as a "Nancy Reagan" after she elected to have a mastectomy rather than have a lump removed from her breast.
  13. Heard the same, but Babs Windsor.
  14. No need, the pennies dropped. I'd forgotton about that. :slow:
  15. Moi?

    You for coffee; I prefer tea.

    (Say it aloud but slowly, doc...:wink:)
  16. I remember, as a junior seaman (a lifetime ago) on exped, being told, by a colour sergeant RM, that coffee should be as black as night, as hot as hell and as sweet as sin and that's the way I drink it.
