Smoking ban

So, 9 days into the smoking ban here in and the world hasn’t yet ended, which is nice.

But, pubs should now becoming aware of the fact that they do actually stink, in a literal way… normally it seems to the aroma of piss eminating from the toilets. Now, i’m of the thinking that the smell of smoke was better than that…

Hmmm… actually maybe I just need to go to better pubs?


So… last night, we have a bit of a work social (due to company merger), an evening of being taught how to make cocktails whilst drinking them (and other alcohol).
It was a really fun evening (even the cheesey 90s dance music that they played after the main event whilst we were drinking more booze) and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
What I didn’t enjoy was this morning. God I felt rough… in fact, I still felt drunk. In retrospect, I probably shouldn’t have gone around pooring bits of various cocktails into one glass, christening it the ‘Altogether’ cocktail and proceeding to drink it… oh well.


I thought I’d show off the picture of my proud creation, i think it was a Manhatten… yeah, fairly certain of that. Although, of course, it had a twist of Barrows flair to it (i.e. it had double measures in it). It certainly had quite a kick!
