Life Got In The Way

It got in the way of me updating. I mean to update when I started knitting, when the apocalypse was happening, Christmas, New Years, when I finished my scarf and… life got in the way. XD

Let us try to recap on what has happened in that space in time…

I took up knitting…

I took up drinking…

(Cheap drinking)

And I ate more than I thought humanly possible in the last few weeks. Although it wasn’t as bad as last Christmas where I threw up from eating too much. I drank in college the day of the “apocalypse”. I drank the weekend after with my dad, his friend and his two daughters. I drank on Christmas. I drank on New Years Eve.

This year was the first year my mother allowed me to drink with the family on Christmas day. I’m twenty years old. And also it was only immediate family.

New Years Eve, I spent with Jamie and his family, ironically in he same house on the same couch in which he asked me out two years ago over text to the day. I only found it out afterward too.

Last weekend I wend drinking at a friends brothers house and his girlfriend and I made poisonous alcohol smoothies that had coagulated by morning. I also smoked a lot that night… which reminds me, I’m hungry for a fag, brb.

Okay, sign one that you’re a bit overtired: you raise the lighter to your mouth to light your fag, and there’s no fag in your mouth…

I may also be a little/moderately/very/rather hungover from last night. Last night in which the poison smoothies made a return and I hit a milestone in my drinking career.

I threw up.

All over the bathroom.

Don’t really want to do that again.

Being up at five in the morning where I have the ground floor to myself and a kitchen semi full of food left me to eat everything…

Image

I got about that far before I never ever wanted to look at food again, at least for another six hours.

But had some good craic. I’m sure there was a point somewhere in this blog. Oh well.

I also got a new laptop hence all the pictures, yay!

Cocktails Everywhere!

Lads, lads, lads, lads…. I have no words. I love the internet. You know why I love the internet? Because it gives me such beautiful things as:

Hufflepuff shot   The Hufflepuff Shot.  Ravenclaw shot  The Ravenclaw Shot.

Slytherin shot  The Slytherin Shot.      Gryffindor shot  The Gryffindor Shot.

The internet is a beautiful thing… Especially seeing as there’s 16 more cocktails on the site got to do with Harry Potter.

I’ve also been lead to Lord of the Rings cocktails    and shots.  

Not to mention Pokemon shots The Eeveelution of Shots (Pokemon shot set)Ingredients:Eevee:1/4 simple syrup1 oz Bourbon whiskeydash Angostura bittersdash Orange bittersVaporeon:3/4 oz Blue Curacao3/4 oz VodkaJolteon:3/4 oz Limoncello3/4 citrus Vodka1/4 tsp sugar to dissolveFlareon:1 oz Fire Water (Hot Cinnamon Schnapps)1/2 oz Bacardi 151 1 pinch cinnamonEspeon:1 oz Hpnotiq1/2 oz Gin1/8 oz Grenadine Umbreon:1 oz.

For the blue version, get a small tumbler and pour in 10ml of Blue Curacao, 10ml of vodka and top up with lemonade. For orange you’ll need another tumbler, this time filled with 10ml of Cointreau, 10ml of rum and Orangina. If you fancy, you can jazz the glasses up with coloured sugar rims. Simply pour some sugar into a sandwich bag with the relevant food colouring, shake them up, pour the resulting mix into a dish and dip your tumbler in. “You can mix the portals together if you like,” says James. “It’s a very orangey flavour, which we thought tied in with The Orange Box, the compilation in which the original Portal appeared.”The finest beverage breakthroughs from the Aperture alcohol research labs.

Check out the article for the rest of the drinks and check out Loading for a great gaming bar and cafe.

Sigh.
