So, I’ve been challenged by Larry to give you live updates of my New Years Eve. OH A CHALLENGE! Now we all know I cannot resist such a thing! I had to don a wig to get me in the party mood because usually, I’m not a massive fan of New year. I find it all rather terribly depressing and prefer to stay in and mull over my endless failings as a human. It’s likely that you are going to be highly disappointed if you are expecting “Jules la party gal” to emerge, but I’ll see how it goes. I plan to post on the hour, every hour (give or take – I have to upload photos, remember) on my nights entertainment. I’m hoping to get out amongst the people of the night and see if I can shoot them and then maybe get a few snaps in.
First off, let me try and get in the spirit of things, so to speak. Here’s the right side of my drinks cabinet:
a nice selection of Baileys, Baileys chocolat, a bit of fizzy prosecco, a nice bit of rose going on at the back there and a juicy red….Taylors port….gin….
vodka…more port…(I’m so classy) martini (shaken not stirred) vodka (always a steadfast) I just don’t know where to start or WHY I HAVE SO MUCH ALCOHOL! I don’t even drink. When confronted with so much choice, it makes me very stressed. I’m dreadful at decisions.
Give me a few minutes, if you would….
I’ve opted for a Martini Gin as I have recently experienced this fine, knock your box off, little cocktail when in France. When I was first offered this I was a tad skeptical. The last time I drank gin was at my friends house, aged 14, after several bananas and
It was at this tender age that I realised my tendancy to the extreme. I drank 3/4 of a bottle and then proceeded to throw up all over the nice neighbourhood street and then tried to have a wee on the post office floor. Things haven’t changed a deal…I never touched gin again thereafter until I became acquainted with French class. One part of this mixed with 2 parts Martini Bianco (sweet) a slice of lemon and let me tell you….the world is a magical place!
Right then…see you in an hour!
