Works night out.

There's only me here so it'll be cheap. Rather, it would be if I wasn't so keen on expensive whiskies.

Today was the last day of posting until the Christmas chaos is over. Even the stuff I sent out today probably won't reach its destination until after the companies close for the holiday. No matter. Those invoices will be waiting to cheer them up when they get back.

The snow has now been joined by a freezing fog so I won't be visiting the lab in the next few days and I have already decided to have a day off on Friday so work has sort of ground to a halt. I'm not a Scrooge but I don't see the need to shut the whole world down for two weeks of gluttony and drunkenness, especially since so many seem to do that all year anyway. I have work to do!

I suppose, if I was religious, I'd be able to see the point of it all. But I'm not. So I can't.

Might as well just get used to the idea that nothing sensible is going to happen for the next couple of weeks, and enjoy it. So, tonight, it's out for a bit of merry carousing and quaffing, in the spirit of the season. Looking at the world out there, I'll need a fair bit of antifreeze in my system tonight. Electrofag is definitely coming along!

Tomorrow I suppose I could start that Christmas shopping thing. Or maybe the next day.

Merry Christmas to you and enjoy the whisky.

If there is any fighting you'll only have yourself to blame.

Erm, same goes for any furtive groping...

I am enjoying my second large malt at this moment, Legfe. As I sniff a surviving cigar from last Christmas, it seems highly appropriate to quote from the autobiography of the living fag, Stephen Fry:

"The sudden impulse to enjoy a little puff tonight is quite irresistible."

Merry Christmas to one and all.

I've found a smoky drinky place, so I'll be in there enjoying a cigar, sipping a nice glass of red and socialising in general. All with no telly on at all.

I think that's fairly indicative as to the type of Winterval I'd like the Righteous to have.

As I understand it, a private limited company can (apparently) spend up to £150 per head (of staff) in one go on a staff party, once per year, and then claim it as a tax-deductible.

I'd think you could get a fair amount of whisky for that!

A merry night was indeed had by all. Except the thin guy who looks like Gollum because I can never resist reminding him of that.

There was no fighting though. Just imaginative banter. That's much more challenging.

Kynon - I'm going to have to look into that. There are actually whiskies in that price range, but I've never so much as smelled one. Yet.
