. I'd actually prefer the high tea tradition in the U.K. because at least they have sandwiches with their tea and they speak English.

if you "high tea" in England you gotta have the champagne....my mum and her friends are into all that shit, i've popped round before just for a few free glasses of fizz as they only live down the street.

That coffee n cake shit must come from all the old abandoned grannies we have in germany. I hate it.

Sammy, great idea. Chocolate cake and whisky mixes very well
It was liquid hence we had to drink it

At that point you might as well have chucked them on the fire and used them as charcoal briquettes.

Speaking of those wacky German's...we were invited to coffee and cake the other day for oett's geeky bro's birthday. It's always oett's brother's time to shine at these gatherings because he has a "passion for baking" as I heard him once tell someone in German. So yes, that nerd baked his own birthday cake among many other goodies and in return, we brought him a fresh jar of homemade pickles (or jarred abortion for those of you who are privy).

I've mentioned my attendance of this tradition of having cake and coffee at 3:00 pm (or, 1500 hours as they say) before. I can't complain too much because it only happens on special occasions, but it's not my most favorite of things. I don't even really care for coffee nor cake, there isn't even any wine or anything, and I just sit there while people speak German around me. I'd actually prefer the high tea tradition in the U.K. because at least they have sandwiches with their tea and they speak English.

Anyway his brother the Cakemeister had it all set up outside and it was 90°F that afternoon (32°C which is especially hot as balls for here). Coffee was the last beverage I could possibly think of drinking at that moment. When I had a sip, it felt like a burning gun shot to my heart resembling the feeling of drinking hot coffee in the desert. Couldn't do it.

Not taking away from other countries traditions but 'Murrica NAILED afternoon gatherings. BEER on ice with snacks like chips and dips when outside in 90°F. Perhaps some wings and booze drinks like daiquiri's or margaritas for more "formal" occasions. Then have some cake after. That's how we roll.

And didn't Happy Hour - the ultimate afternoon meet up- originate in 'Murrica? 'Murrica...fck yeah! How I miss thee!

What's the matter with you people? Have you never heard of iced coffee? A shot of bourbon or rum or Baily's with a scoop of ice cream? Holy shit, what is your problem?

No, they haven't heard of it. Unfortunately.

Fairly uneventful day. Did the usual household chores, got a pot of spaghetti sauce on the stove. Made it to the lone liquor store that carries Dickel rye and scored the last bottle of said rye. That was pretty awesome. I love relaxing Sundays.

My neighbor just gave me a box of Franzia. I thanked him and asked him what it was for. He said it was for letting him use my assigned parking space. Sometimes I park on the street, and if I do, I put a note on their door telling them they can use it. However, I haven't done it lately and now I wonder if this box of wine isn't so much an expression of gratitude as it is a plea to let them use it again.

Free booze, yup. Plus, no obligation. You noticed the reciprocation tactic, coupled with a hint of passive aggression.

benitobeast69 is correct. Frig it and drink it

Found out the best way out of a hangover is to start drinking again. Sad but true!

Woke up hungover as fuck for work. Thankfully I only had to puke once, and made it through the 9 hour shift.

SURVIVE.
