No time, no time.

Off to the Smoky-Drinky place so no time to look at the news. Just a quick browse among the blogs. I'm sure it's good for me to skip the papers once in a while, certainly better for me than the new 'Liver Tsar'. I mean, it's the only part of your body you can whack hell out of and which then grows back. I'm off out to test that at the Smoky-Drinky place. Again.

The government want your views on a few things, except they don't really, but they need to be able to say they asked so they set up a consultation and hid it on their website. Fortunately, Old Holborn found it. Worth a look.

Finally, for a bit of cheer, via Mr. E, comes this blog of mirth and hilarity.

I wonder what the Gorgon says in his sleep? On second thoughts, I'm probably happier not knowing.

Normal service will be resumed tomorrow. Well, as normal as it gets, anyway.

Should one:
A) attempt elevated comment on the uncanny wisdom in the legend of Prometheus.

B) revert to type and make knob joke.

C) as last resort, make characteristically boring, over-educated yet ill-informed comment about liver regeneration being only possible within certain and occasionally highly individual limits. If you really clobber it*, the poor thing can start to grow back all yellow & knobbly and eventually stop working properly. Then you might then get to snuff it in a horribly dramatic fashion.

*29.5 units last night. Following the 'know your limits' campaign I always add them up carefully.

D) Just shut the **** up, Dave. You're still pissed.

Something about getting on with the job because it's the right thing to do, I should imagine.

It's my turn to visit a Smoky-Drinky place today. Islay awaits me, and not a ready-made in sight. No telly either. Mind you, I don't fancy their music much.

Dave - True, you can burn it beyond its regeneration capacity. The trick is to give it time in between to regenerate.

I've had more livers than Dr. Who, you know.

CS- have fun. It was all Highland malts last night, the Drinky-Smoky host wasn't a fan of the peaty stuff.

A good night was had, nonetheless.
