Same old, same old

Well here I am safe at a very quiet home, sipping, nae slurping on my large uisge beatha.

I was seconded to Custard Occifer duties last night and most of the never ending patrons appeared to come in horizontally and to have consumed entire distilleries.



Och well, at's it o'er for anither year.

Here's to a quiet nicht the nicht as Scotland enjoys its extra public booze up day, but after last nicht's experience, it might just have been the warm up.

Hope you all had a safe and sensible night.

Must depart as the dram needs topping up.

Ah - custody at Christmas...

the beery & pissy smells...

the calm before the rousing for interviews and PND issuing...

the banging and screaming of disgruntled customers...

it's just like yesterday.

Happy New Year!!!

Have you tried whisky and Fanta? I'm enjoying a glass just now, as a matter of fact. Or is that a shocking idea? I offended the man at the Dallas Dhu distillery once by asking for some lemonade in the free dram!

Happy New Year to you and yours, btw.

I read an article (surely sensationalized to some degree) that said that a 999 call (in Britain) was occurring every seven seconds.

You must have been busy. Hope you are enjoying a restful day, though.

Thanks and hope you enjoyed mahogany.


Love the photo on the link.


... and there was more last night too!

Back to normality at the coalface next week after a well earned weekend off.


No. Back from nights on the first just now and much the same as hogmanay!

7 seconds - there's a song for that! ....and I thought it would be less actually, especially with the muppet calls the various forces get about late pizzas etc.

Last, but not least, AnneD

Shocked? I am truly appalled. That's sacrilege!

Malt Whisky should not be adulterated. However, if you like an orangey flavour, just go for my absolute favourite whisky (see side bar) ie Cardhu. It has a complex flavour including, to my palate anyway, a slightly burnt orange flavour.......but Fanta. I will have trouble sleeping now.

All the best abidy.

Noddy, AnneD could have at least put Irn Bru in it. Oh dear, Noddy you've gone a strange green colour.

AnneDroid said...

Haha - mission accomplished, Noddy. I knew you'd be outraged.

UHDD, I'll try that some time.

Glad to hear that you made it through the night safely and got to enjoy your dram!

Must dash, am feeling nae verra weel after reading some o' those comments.

Noddy said...

Dash it all!
