The Still drinking But in Isolation thread

Postby Green Man III » Fri Oct 16, 2020 11:30 pm

The last few minutes were spent thinking, "WTF, this whisky bottle is drunk-adult-proof...then I got the box off the top that was holding my bonus whiskey glass.

Okay, now that I've gone from cider to whisky and I've got my headphones on as I crank a mix CDR into my ear drums, let's remember this thread whenever we're drinking whether it's with people (at some illegal social gathering, no no no, you stop that now and behave) or if it's by ourselves on a Friday night (like usual) and we've got the Internet as company.

Cheers to all those people out there I have met and have yet to meet. Stay positive and let's "make Bloodstock happen". :drink:

I had a problem with it until I realised the drunk-adult-proof meant that the whiskey bottle cannot be opened by a drunk adult......then it all made sense

Okay, now I've sobered up I've corrected a bunch of typos. But, yeah, some things are just hard to explain.

Big time! We need to keep drinking and watching concert vids on youtube to keep the dream alive!

You'll find me going crazy over Mercyful Fate and trying to check out as many bands as possible while getting drunk and whiskey and/or cider!!!

Friday night and drunk again. Man it's easy to get drunk when you're at home and have a good booze supply. Listening to Svalbard and waiting for the pizza to arrive then it's probably some Black Adder specials and then back to watching vids.

Anybody else drinking while we wait patiently for the next Bloodstock?

I've started drinking more varieties of rum. Brewdog's 'hundred cuts' is pretty nice.

My homebrew mead production died down after I moved house at the start of the first lockdown -- had to bottle ~8 gallons before moving, so I didn't have many bottles to decant into -- but I've started ramping up production again in the past month or so. Got my hands on some local honey, so I've got one gallon with added yeast, and one that fermented with just the yeast naturally present in the honey. Unfortunately I didn't get enough to make my usual abv strength (~14%), and this levelled out at about 8%, so I'll need to get a bigger order next time.

In an effort to shift some timber (target is to drop 8 stone, 5 by BOA 2021) I've massively cut back on drinking atm from averaging 3-4 pints a night to about that in a month. This if I keep it up then Bloodstock will be hecktonne cheaper as I'll be a complete lightweight.

That's a great idea! :lol:

I miss being a light weight. I would do the same but I think my Friday night drinking is partly what's getting me through.

Then again, I'm sober right now and listening to a mix CDR I made in 2005 and really having a ball!

I haven't had a beer since pubs shut on 2nd November. Thought it would be a good idea to challenge myself to no beer until pubs re-open but turns out not many will be opening come 2nd December. :lol: I haven't really missed beer tbh, just miss going somewhere different and socializing! Good luck with the weight loss i0th :yes:
