At last! Someone who thinks the same as me about wine!
Having said that, I'm quite partial to an odd sip of Balsamic
I love my red wine!
Andy? Don;t like red wine?
Was looking forward to a great Italian Pasta and a red when you are over in December. Oh well!
Wine is nasty vile sour stuff. So there!
Wine? Ugh. Kitty, Kyt...:hug:
Geoff, I was more thinking a pie and coke but since you're thinking flash, I'll settle for pasta and a coke...:becky:
Must be some good pasta joints in Melbourne. Spent most of my South African trip with our boss who is a wine freak and has lived in Sydney so reckons there's no good food in Perth (he might be right but I think his standards are pretty high). He bought some (apparently) nice bottles of wine to go with our meals but after a couple of nights I returned to the beer and coke. No matter how expensive a bottle, it was wasted on me. But, that's just me!
I think there are some people who just despise the taste of alcohol. i know I can't drink anything alcoholic as all i can taste is the nasty bitter alcohol content, i can't taste anything else.
I can't even eat trifle if it has a dash of sherry in it.
I now have to rely on my natural insanity and a Pepsi rush.
Not even a Scotch while watching an RN movie, Kitty?
Doubt it - bet she'd be expensive on the chocolate front
cheap date, expensive girlfriend. :>
Not eaten choklit for over 2 months now. *sigh*
Whisky, a smooth mild one, is about the only thing i can drink, and then only a single shot as I then get a debilitating migraine.
12 year old malt sounds like a good idea. No more Friday night basketball for a while so I get a chance to have a drink.
Just what Kyt and I were talking about earlier today. He's introduced me to some Irish whiskeys which I'm going to have to hunt down.
I have got to get my assessor and course leader a 20 year odl malt if I want a 1:1. Good job there is a speciality whisky shop in Bakewell
At the tender age of 17, I was a young and enthusastic cpl in 498 sqn ATC. I was sent on a cadet leadership course to Frimley Park in Surry.
On the Friday night, I decided to go down town for a drink and to this end I bought a bottle of Bells Whisky, only because it ws the only name I recognised! I duly drunk quite a lot of the whisky and in a drunken state went to bed.
At 0710, I was woken up by the Regular RSM in charge of the camp, as I was still half cut, I could only make out that he was telling me in a loud voice that I was the Duty NCO and had to get everybody on the parade square for 0730!
After that, I never touched a drop of whisky in my life! Even today the smell puts me off!
However, give me a decent rum, then I am quite happy! Even happier since my local morrisons do Appletons and Wrays overstrength rum. The latter is very good if you use a touch of lime juice to take the edge off of it!
Bribery and corruption - it gets you anywhere!
I'm like that with beer, Morse. A couple of bad experiences as a kid, and I can't stand the stuff now. Though none of my experiences involved such responsibility.
Mine is brandy. Enough said.
I stick to Vodka and Coke and Red wine!
And we all know that Andy likes his drinks with a little umbrella in them :bolt:
Is that for when it is raining.......................!
....or to stop the ice cubes melting too quickly
