Coffee. It helps me not want to kill myself in the mornings.

A nice cup of Yorkshire Tea.

After 6.00 pm it'll be Greenall's Gin and Tesco Tonic - lots of it.

Bung Ho!
Wow, you can wait till 6.

That's god-level discipline

Polish vodka, followed by Kraken and beer after dinner. I think I'll have some fried chicken.

Thanks Rye and Coke.

It's not discipline, it's habit. I'm stricken in years and learned a long time ago to hold back until nightfall (or at least until the sun's over the yardarm) and then hit it hard. My quiet suburban existence won't survive a day-long screaming blast or Don Birnam-style bender so one trims the sails and carries on.

Tonight it's an eclectic mix of Grant's whisky, Tesco's own brandy (not bad), Greenall's gin and plenty of Beck's Blue non-alcoholic lager (as a medium for the rest and quite tasty). Oh, and some Barefoot Merlot as an interlude...

They say: Never mix Grape and Grain. WTF?

Happy imbibing one and all!

Teuf teuf!

If it's Saturday, I'm drinking Mexican lager beer and premium tequila shots. Life is good!

We had Oett's immersion blended vodka strawberry daiquiris. So refreshing on a hot day. Goes straight to the head.

Just jumping back in before tonight's magnificence - what else can boozing be? - to confirm my new avatar is of course from my all-time fave MDM item: Martini Madness! Clash of the Tightest is without doubt one of the best-written series ever, but MM strikes me in the gizzard each time I go back to it. The superb description by the Great One of each photo, their obvious staging, the lack of good lighting, the fact that it's plainly shot in the morning not after work... And so on. Thanks be to Frank and whoever played John.

And may God have Mercy on our Souls.

Right. I'm back with alcohol in my system and ready to rumble...

Aldi is a German supermarket chain who have succeeded in Britain by cutting prices while providing sufficient quality of goods to satisfy the (admittedly) easy to please British public.

Which a long way round of saying that I bought today their 8-year old Scotch, their litre-version Gin and their Tamova vodka which I could probably make in my bath. Also their Rheinbacher lager four-pack to help down the delicious beverages described above.

All to the good. I'll leave the gin alone tonight in favour of the 8-year whisky (which isn't bad), the vodka (which is like putting your hand in a flame) plus the lager.

Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Catch ya later, Bill n Ted!

Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Coffee Stout with some Kentucky metal. Not my usual summer beer choice but good times anyway.
Cheers!

Being spontaneous has its place but having a plan is often a wise choice. Cheers to that.

OK. What do you call that feeling when you're past the first welcome rush in your stomach that says: "It's cominggg..."

When you've had a couple (or several) and you're well in charge of yourself and the world.

Is it euphoria?

Or moria?

That feeling is...blissss.

And all because the lady loves...

Milk Stout! (Obscure UK advert for chocolate 1960's)

God I'm well away..

Thank you for you attention

Excelsior!
