the true meaning of christmas, part 2

I just finished the big bottle of gin. Star-shaped ice-cubes and a wedge of lime, mind. No swigging straight from the bottle.

I had a G&T last night, but alas! I'd run out of lime!

Limes always turn to evil before I can finish them.

I know; it's a sad truth about fruit.

mmm
For christmas I bought eating oranges and cooking oranges, and then a guest helpfully brought me an enormous net of oranges in case I needed something healthy. Now I have more oranges than I've ever seen, and will shortly have a kitchen full of pale blue moldy squishy oranges ...

Re: mmm
There are some who would make marmalade when life gives them oranges. Personally I hate the stuff, and so would probably squeeze them and drink them. And you could always add a little vodka.

might work on the cooking oranges
-- not so sure about the enormous pile of clementines. And anyway, don't you need equipment to do that?

No, I definitely don't have one of those.

Probably around 50p from any charity shop.

Gin is made of evil and Lysol.

hey!
don't diss the flavour of London. Actually, come to think of it ... mmm-mm. Exhaust fumes and estuary.

Brandy helped me survive the family bit of Christmas, and now I'm back from many hours of drinking nice cloudy cider and I feel much recovered. True meaning indeed.

sorry to miss you last night
--- I was just too cold and tired to leave the house. Sounds like the pub went well, anyway ...

Yes, the chickenmonster and gin bottle arrangement is a gem.

normal filing in my kitchen last
kitchen god next to godzilla monster next to Tesco's Value Gin (always the last bottle to be drunk™). In the new kitchen, the gin lives in the cupboard with the ink bottles, no dinosaurs. There's a Sommeliersaur in the glass cupboard, though.

This is the same lizard, down the pub with me last summer. If you squeeze it, it flashes.

Do you actually drink the Tesco value stuff? Is it okay, then?
cleanskies
29th Dec, 2005 14:12 (UTC)
sure, it's
-- well, I'd hesitate to say delicious, but it certainly has a savour all of its own. Plus it's £6.49 a bottle. £6.49! ... uh, not that I'm encouraging you to drink it or anything.

it's a catastrophe
I have run out of Tanqueray No.10 and I can't afford to buy any more!

Think I'll settle for some Mount Gay hot toddies instead...
