To drink or not to drink?

December 6, 2012

Ho, ho, ho, everyone! As the Holiday season is coming I'm here to save you from some serious head damage and bad mouth taste with the "Simple guide of the alcoholic: First Edition". As we all know - with holidays like Christmas and (especially) New Year waiting by the corner - we all tend to drink a bit more than we usually do (admit it, drunkards). And this is where I come, telling you what to drink, like I am your mother. Yes, cos actually I can.

1) Martini - Yes, George Clooney once said it : "No Martini, no party" and he was right. Martini is the old-known sophisticated drink for real BOSSES. With a cocktail cherry or a green olive on a stick, it immediately catches everyone's eyes with a high-shaped glass and it's classiness. It is just simply flirting with you from the moment the bartender serves it ably at the bar. It's quite of a big deal to walk in a sleek bar, set on a high bar stool and with a sly glance to whisper at the bartender: "A Martini, please", when he asks "A cherry or olive?". Purrr. If you're a man, better don't do it, of course. Or ask for an olive, it sounds more manly. Mostly, ask for your Martini to be served in a normal glass (not one with a high stem) before the bartender starts eyeing you...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

It's only 23 days 'till Christmas! And I don't wanna sound like Grinch, but let's face it - Christmas sucks. Well, it sucks for me at least. Let's say I'm not the biggest enthusiast for spending half of the Holiday season in a "Middle of nowhere" village with my family, arguing and grumbling over the Christmas table, talking 'bout job, politics and all kinds of boring to death stuff, eating dinner and going to bed super early... And I'm not the biggest enthusiast for doing this over & over again every single year. It's all the same - lousy presents, "Home alone" 1,2,3,4, Santa Claus coca-cola commercials and posters everywhere, food and crap tv.
