Gotta love the Student Union here in Plymouth!
Famous Grouse only 85p a measure with choice of mixture (if wanted) and if you buy 3 at once you get a free beenie :)
That was one fun hour! The only downside being that they were showing all of todays Six Nations matches, how people can enjoy watching guys fondle each other for 80 minutes I don't know!
But having had three whiskey and cokes (had to make them long lasting as a skint student :P) within the space of an hour and I'm anybodys ;P

ST. Patricks again ? That freak makes me a year older every time he shows up ! And to think green is still my favourite colour . Didn't he kill all the Drakes in Ireland ?So add genocide to the list.

That is a cheery view of things! ^_^

Today is a good day none the less! I hope all you guys are having as much fun as zoglog!

Zoggy hows about a picture of you wearing said beanie EH ?? Hey does this hat have a propeller ?

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] March 17 2007 9:07 PM EDT

Don't have a camera that'll allow me to upload pics to my laptop so unfortunately you can't see it.
And no, it's just a plain black beanie with 'The Famous Grouse Finest Scotch Whiskey' on the front and the teams in the 6 nations on the back along with the Famous Grouse logo.

So a Scottish Grouse that celebrates St. Patricks day makes it famous ? Hmm Can it dance too ?

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] March 18 2007 8:12 AM EDT

Scotch doesn't necessarily mean Scottish ;)
Plus I think it's only because they were a sponsor for the tournament.

Yeah, St. Patrick, heck of a guy... one of the first christians to order the extermination of pagans... certainly a good reason to toast someone's name... if you're a christian, I guess, who revels in extermination due to religious beliefs... I wonder when we'll all be graced with St. Hitler's Day...

GO PATS March 18 2007 6:25 PM EDT

Sorry to bring the mood down with that... just two points to defend my actions...

1. I'm Pagan.
2. I'm very angry at him for making me drink so much last night.

Fantasysage March 18 2007 9:37 PM EDT

Of course my RA's chose This day to bust me for drinking.

tscm March 18 2007 10:06 PM EDT

Well we all have our opinions... It was a good day none the less. Not many people cares about how it was brought into being a special day, just that there are sales and beer. But like I said, good day none the less. :D

Anyone go to a party? I was stuck at home all day... I need gossip, ppl!

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] March 18 2007 10:47 PM EDT

All my gossip comes from Thursday, Friday and tonight unfortunately.
Due to stupid people televising the rugby all day in the Union, I started feeling ill due to the heat, not to mention 90ml of grouse within 60 minutes in my 3rd straight day of alcoholicism I left before I was drunk enough for any gossip stories.
So sorry, I got nothin'.

ResistanZ March 18 2007 10:55 PM EDT

Uh... it's not St. Patricks Day anymore. How about a nice popsicle to help with the hangover?

[T]Vestax March 19 2007 1:55 AM EDT

Some people celebrate the holidays with such vigor that one day is just not enough.

Popsicle Man Supreme March 19 2007 2:15 AM EDT

i drink everyday like its St. Patricks day huh what are you guys talking about i need to sit down

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] March 19 2007 6:30 AM EDT

We were talking about the swaying of the ocean .How it goes up and down and up and down. Some times it will swirl round and round while it bobs up and down, up and down. So you can go round and round and up and down, up and down bobbing to and fro and shout oh my oh no if it starts to blow. If it starts to blow you can't cook the greenish salted beef from the Briney barrel stowed down below.So you have to eat it the way it comes out of the barrel !But at least the ripe cheese is edible if you cut off the mold. If your bold the Limburger will hold your attention . Ah the smells of a bracing sea !

tscm March 19 2007 6:12 PM EDT

=/ I think I prefer the mountains! 0.o

AdminG Beee March 19 2007 6:40 PM EDT

I don't do St Patricks day so I've not really been paying attention to this thread, however I can't let Zogs comment on whisky go unchallenged :p

Point of order !

--

To be called Scotch whisky, the spirit must conform to the standards of the Scotch Whisky Order of 1990 (UK), which clarified the Scotch Whisky Act of 1988, and mandates that the spirit:

  1. Must be distilled at a Scottish distillery from water and malted barley, to which only other whole grains may be added, have been processed at that distillery into a mash, converted to a fermentable substrate only by endogenous enzyme systems, and fermented only by the addition of yeast,
  2. Must be distilled to an alcoholic strength of less than 94.8% by volume so that it retains the flavour of the raw materials used in its production,
  3. Must be matured in Scotland in oak casks for not less than three years, and
  4. Must not contain any added substance other than water and caramel colouring, and
  5. May not be bottled at less than 40% alcohol by volume.
  6. No whisky other than Scotch whisky may be made in Scotland.
