Tanqueray martinis with olives on the rocks. So nobody is shaking or stirring. You just wait for the ice to melt.

Hello Hello
I'm back again
I'm back
I'm back
I'm on the right track...

Well tonight in good old Blighty it's cheapest Tesco Vodka mixed with the excellent Bath Ales' Gem 4.8% for an enchanting cocktail of guaranteed drunkenness - and insight!

Like: why is there only one Monopolies Commission?

Out of date, I know but still good!

And: If a picture says a thousand words, then why can't I paint you?

Because I can't fucking paint!

Or describe you in a thousand words!

(Two will probably do...)

F....... C...

So it's Good Night from Me

And it's Good Night from Him

Good Night!

(Love you all)

Seriously, British television used to be the best - now - forget it!

nothin but beer all day cause my mrs and most of my family made me promise not to drink for a month...it was shitti waters I was in so I agreed. I bought 2 cases of alcohol free beer that I've been pouring down the drain all day and filling my glass with real beer...so long as they're none the wiser. good fucking job alcohol free beer is cheap. The under sink is now full as fuck of hidden real beer can empties while I proudly display the alc free empties on the counter
Hate to lay this on you but this sort of thing never works out. Hope you got a good attorney that won't bankrupt you. Cheers!
so far so fuckin good, I've managed to get my sauce on everynight…. she isn't tremendously observant which helps... only got a week to go till I can drink with wild abandon. biggest problem so far has been a trip to a pub with her and had to order an alchohol free as she was stood with me.

anyway right now I've got a big ol glass of grolsh beer

You must've gotten into some heavy duty shit, but yeah, my policy is honesty over all. Like Bukowski said when Wanda asked, "You trust me?" And he goes, "Yeah...it's easier that way."

I've had the conversation with my wife where I've just outright told her, "I'm a drinker, this is what I do. This is my religion. I may slow down, I may pause for a week or two, but I'm never going to outright quit."

It's the conversation every drunkard has to have with concerned loved ones at some point. I don't know what trouble you were in, but it seems as if you were beyond that point. Good luck with this tho', you are one adventurous space dog, fighting the good fight.

Drinking Old Forrester single barrel bourbon special edition. The local convenience store went and bought a single barrel from the distillery and they bottled and packed them into cases. They've been selling locally now for over 2yrs and they are down to the last 8 cases out of over 200. It's been a great run but the store has expressed intention of going to the Woodford Reserve folks for a deal. Drink up!

Wait - A 'convenience' store has that premium bourbon? Aren't they afraid someone will come in, shoplift it, gulp the whole bottle down in one gulp, then puke it all up in the alley?

Thanks drink I found my wife on this very board.
But imagine the explaining I have to do if I don`t drink... smashed plates, death-threats, kicked in TV, I take the children "ya have em" etc

Hold up.... Convenience stores can do that? They just bought a goddamn barrel, tapped it and started charging? Holy hell, what state do you live in?

Here's the skinny: as a retailer, you can't buy the actual barrel and tap it yourself. But you can buy a barrel and have the licensed distillery tap and bottle it for you. Depending on the state, of course.

You can buy it and empty it yourself, sell the firewood

Bought a 375 of Blackheart Rum after the day's KD. Good to mix it up a bit.

Clocks in at 93 proof. Very sweet. An agreeable drink.

Good Lawdy Lawd. Their marketing is awful. Investigate for yourself.
