Dog tired

Posted on Sunday, June 24, 2007 in Uncategorized

This blog’s been on hiatus this weekend, sacrificed for a rare peak in an otherwise quiet social-life.  When it rains it pours!

First of all, Friday night was to be dedicated to my Accidental Terrorist, as I’d spent the week before housesitting for me auld pair.  I was all set to spoil him with some needed attention, when I got a rather forlorn text from my friend, hinting at serious mopeage at being stuck at home with her kids on her birthday.  So, I felt it my duty to arrive at her house with a chinese, a few chickie DVDs and an impressive stash of Bacardi Breezers.  We got suitably inebriated and she became a very happy little duck.

Saturday night was cocktail night in the Accidental Terrorist’s best friend’s house.  We left our children on the doorstep of his mother’s house with a little note attatched, and ran away.  Minutes later, the five of us spent about 150 quid on alcohol and basket loads of fruit, wandering aimlessly around Tescos wondering what else would give an alcoholic smoothy a good kick… Spinach?  Going a bit too far.  Nuts?  Drain cleaner?

Settled back in the batchelor pad, the lads made a weird concoction which involved more eating than drinking, then stuck into their pool tournaments.  No bachelor pad seems to be complete without a pool table and an xbox.  We girlies then began to let the creative juices flow with the dodgy juicer gizmo. 

We made the following concoction:

Half bottle of Bacardi Ice, Half bottle of Bacardi breezer (pineapple flavour), 4 shots of white rum, 4 shots of vodka, Juice of 4 oranges, Juice of 1 lemon, Juice of half a lime, 4 tbsp brown sugar, 1 decent handful of ice, 1 handful of strawberries.

This, poured into a pint glass, is so delicious, it dissapears within about 2 minutes. And the added bonus was the hangovers this morning were non-existent on account of all the lovely vitamin C consumed!! 

The night then progressed into silly status, dancing around the pool table to ‘The Cure’, making silly drunken gestures during the inevitable game of ‘Charades’, you know the rest I’m sure.  The party was crashed by a number of complete wankers who managed to quash the happy spirits flat and start a fight within 10 minutes of their arrival, so we buggered off at that stage.

I’m just about ready for a gallon of tea and a soft couch right now.  The kids can put themselves to bed.

    Dude, I seriously was too selfish to look at other people’s blogs yesterday, I only had a window of about 10 nanoseconds to put up my own. I sweartcha! Maybe it’s more like ‘great minds think alike’ and all that buzz?!
