I do see some sights looking out from the stage, though. Interesting what you see when you are among a crowd who have been drinking heavily.
It can be ugly.

Cointreau on ice tonight at the gig - it's becoming too sweet for me nowadays after cutting out virtually all sugary foods.

Gin and I haven't agreed in the past - I'm very gluten intolerant, and a few other things too. But I'll look into potato gins....

I haven't thought about G&T for a while, but with the weather warming up ...

Yeah, this thought has successfully insinuated itself into my hind brain. That's the one that buys the grog.

Been on the coke and powerade this weekend.
Time on the bike + booze, just doesnt really mix so well.

But I did try to goto Dan Murphy's at Castle Hill (sydney) over the weekend, and was horrified to find it is no longer there.
So didnt buy a mini keg.
