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.

Soda water. I bought a Sodastream the other day, so can now make my own.

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.
