Schnapps, Chianti, Porter And Ouzo, Pernod, Vodka, Sambuca...

I got up at midday to make some breakfast and set the toast on fire. Not enough for me just to burn it - I had to douse the flames in the sink before consigning the charred remains to the bin. I returned, defeated, to the safety of my bed only to spill tea all over it. Well, all over his side of it.

I got up again at 5.

Ouch! These days I go and buy special hangover suplies the afternoon before the night before

Can I just remark that you have the most positively vile taste in alcohol I've ever heard of. I'm imagining a cross between an elderly lady draped in fox fur and a sweaty Greek restaurant owner.

Lets meet up and drink nagans and ritz on the nalar.

Jaysus, them's interesting cocktails you're drinking.

ah kids, it's a line from Elvis Costello's The Deportees Club.

i was actually drinking: a "white russian" (the Jaffa Cake's special blend of kaluha, tia maria, vodka and whiskey with milk), vodka and lemonade (a staple), mohitos (buíochas le Christina), a jaegerbomb (buíochas le Colm) and a pint or two of hoegaarten (which i'm not sure how to spell).

ugh.

i'm assuming that by "special hangover supplies" you mean drugs, Felix? there's no other cure, right?

let's, Dublinista. we can tie our six packs up with string and float them in the water on sunny days like the guy on wilton terrace does.

I was drunk enough that I can't remember if we went to Burger King with Maybury and Deb or you and the fella, and yet I had not a hint of a hangover on Sunday. This is because I have the most awesome metabolism in history. And also sweet sunglasses.

... I did however just somehow choke on my own saliva. That'll learn me to be cocky on the internet.

it wasn't us. we went to Spar and bought jellies that tasted exactly like Bacardi Breezers.

which was not good, not good at all.

Kalhua and Tia Maria? That's a White Russian I can like.

Rua, never gets out anymore said...

How sad is this-I'm jealous

Rosie said...

Well pain killers are good, but the other wonder substances are: coke (a cola), tomatoes and anything greasy.
