I still have plenty at my house left over from Saturday night. That was interesting. *grabs rotgut*

If anyone needs me, I'll be in my corner.

*sips a Horlicks*

I'm so glad the pub is back! Earlier today I tried to get a simple bottle of water from the automated beverage dispensor bot downstairs, but upon putting in my penny, I found out there was no water left, only carbonated pop! I couldn't get my penny back, so had to give in and buy some of this "soda". I'm jolly well not happy about it though.

I've not been in here for a while. Fortunately I found the pub after its move - its a good thing no one changed th pub name during the move (but I guess that does at least prove its not owned by Wetherspoons).

Stil no rum on the shelf though. Maybe I'll just have to pop round to Athena's palce to see if she has any left.

I the meantime I'll have a large calvados please barkeep.

Would I be drummed out of the Clocktower and have the drip trays emptied over me if I admitted that I found his portrayal of the thoroughly unscrupulous and unloveable Dean Corso rather tasty (The Ninth Gate)?

(Not to mention that the music is wonderfully creepy and funereal)

Cheers.
After the day I've had, I could use some civil conversation and a nice drink.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I apologize for my earlier outburst. I must confess that I had thoroughly irrigated my cerebrum with Rose Sélavy's excellent gin before mistaking the back door here for the entrance to the powder room (non-smoking) at Miss Sélavy's establishment.

Oh the shame! Embarrassed

I say barkeep, I see you have restocked in rums of appropriate quality.

With today being the anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar, I think its my turn to buy a round.

A tot of rum (preferably Mount Gay Extra Old), if you please, for anyone who will join me in a toast to the Immortal Memory of Admiral Lord Nelson. Huzzah!!!

Well, Lord Wraste, I am beginning to wonder if there is simply something about my person that begs strangers to seek me out in order to pick an argument with me. I don't think I look particularly combative, and when someone expresses a difference of opinion with me I of course accept their right to that opinion in the most gracious way possible. However, these people seem to take particular pleasure in attempting to trap me into a debate, going so far as to even follow me down the street when I end the conversation and walk away, still arguing their point. It is simply more than I could bear today.
*takes another lovingly lingering sip from her snifter*
Ah, that's better...

Thank you, Gabriel, I think I will. You may call me Bonny.
They begin innocently enough, with a casual conversation struck up at a shop or some such place over a shared appreciation of one thing or another, or occasionally from curiosity on one person displaying a preference unusual to the other. It is understandable enough for someone to wonder what would lead me to give up meat, for example, but as soon as some opinion of mine is discovered to differ with theirs, their natural curiosity drives them to inquire as to how my opinion was formed, which is understandable enough. I am an anthropologist, I certainly understand wanting to know why people do the things they do. However, once I give my reasons, they begin to deconstruct them and start attempting to show me the error of my ways. I don't particularly like this, as my decisions about my lifestyle are based on a lifetime's worth of education, experience, and self-reflection, and I generally politely excuse myself from the conversation. Unfortunately not everyone is willing to let me go on my merry way and insist on "converting" me to their side, whether the subject at hand be a dietary choice, a political belief, or even something as simple as literary genre preference. I don't particularly care what others choose to read, but please allow me to read(or eat or vote for) what I like in peace.

Well, I am considering in indulging in a culinary excess, perhaps something with lots of cheese....or maybe something chocolate.

I am drinking....*looking at label*......Mike's Hard Punch. There went sleeping.  Tongue

Honestly, I tried to go to sleep, and with all the junk I had to do today you'd think I'd be tired right? Wrong.  Undecided

Probably just eating it straight, I'm too tired to make anything. I made jalapeno poppers yesterday, and roasted some garlic, so I'm covered on the savory side.

Chocolate-dipped roasted garlic cloves? That might be too adventurous for me, and I've have fermented camel's milk!

What happened....everyone disappeared....*looking around* Oh well.

Chocolate dipped garlic cloves? That might be a little much. Now hot peppers in chocolate, or even lavender, that's good. I just got the weirdest craving for chocolate covered blueberries.

I'll settle for raspberry vodka instead. Barkeep!!!!! A shot, and keep 'em comin'.

There is nothing new or all that exciting in my world of late, unfortunately. I'm going through one of those periods in which life seems to stagnate. I do hope it won't last too much longer, but if it does, I shall be here with fine scotch, waiting it out.

Gah.  What a day.  Some people seem to think that simply by flipping a turn indicator lever, either a space in the next lane will be magically opened for them, or they have the right to force a way into a space that is too small.

Three separate assaults on my vehicle, averted by judicious application of brakes, horn, and gestures.  Good job for them my Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator was in shop for repairs...

grrrrrr.

Lamb's Navy Rum, neat.  In memory of The Admiral.


Cheers!
