Twitter Updates for 2010-01-15

  • Today's goal is to try and get all my work done by lunchtime, so I can hide in a cafe/pub and write this afternoon. #
  • Day will culminate with whisky and cheese with @andrewsands. #
  • Aargh! No email for me for at least the next 24 hours, problems with my Gmail password. #
  • If you want to send me messages for the next days, use Twitter, text or phone. #
  • (Second) breakfast of champions: http://twitpic.com/y5tt5 #
  • Oh, weird. Ignore previous #communicationfail messages, it seems I'm back into Gmail now. #
  • RT @ArmyofDave "Hello. It looks like you're writing a BBC HYS comment. Would you like help A) Blaming foreigners B) Blaming the government?" #
  • For those who are up-to-date and interested, FreakAngels is totally awesome today. #
  • Don't worry, I won't be sticking to orange juice. #amwriting http://twitpic.com/y70py #
  • In a nigh-deserted pub, the high-pitched chattering gossips decide to sit next to me. They might die! Not by my hand, but out of idiocy. #
  • Bad pub music, bad neighbours and a poetry exercise asking me 'pretend I'm my favourite animal'. Right, booze before I stab someone. #
  • Is a drunk a kind of animal? #
  • Whisky number one. http://twitpic.com/y7uo1 #
  • The consensus: The Tobermory was too citrusy to go with cheese. #
  • Next up, Penderyn. http://twitpic.com/y81eb #
  • The Penderyn was good! Apparently the only Welsh whisky and goes well with Green's cheddar. #
  • Yamazaki! I know I like this one. http://twitpic.com/y83u1 #
  • Yamazaki does not go with cheese! Too alcoholic! #
  • Highland Park? Why not. http://twitpic.com/y84hj #
  • Highland Park was very disappointing. Goes well with cheese because the cheese is better than the whisky. #
  • To non-whisky interested followers: Sorry, there's going to be hours of this. #
  • A 10 year old Jura next. Delicious! A slow start, with a great finish! Does not work with cheese. http://twitpic.com/y8678 #
  • A juvenile Bruichladdich next. Boozy and tarry. Versatile with the cheese. Aside: starting to get a little drunk. http://twitpic.com/y88v3 #
  • And now for a treat, a distillery only, limited edition, cask strength Talisker. http://twitpic.com/y89s2 #
  • Awesome! And is mellowed out beautifully by the Comte de Gruyere. #
  • The Talisker, at 53%, was the only one so far that could cope with the Shropshire Blue cheese. #
  • No rest for the wicked! Distiller's Edition Caol Ilan is up next. http://twitpic.com/y8bue #
  • Best cheese and whisky combo so far: Distiller's Edition Caol Ilan with Comte de Gruyere. #
  • What, Talisker again? Oh, the 18 year old? Why not indeed! http://twitpic.com/y8d7s #
  • The 18 yr old does not go with cheese, it is, as @AndrewSands says, a drinkers whisky. #
  • A 12 yr old Bowmore next, after a brief sanity break. http://twitpic.com/y8h83 #
  • Need a booze break, even my iron constitution can only take so much. #
  • To finish off, a Lagavulin. No end to the peatiness! And sweet in a pleasant way. http://twitpic.com/y8qc3 #
  • Okay, no more whisky tweets, I swear! All done. #
  • I broke @TheakstonSkidby's tube. It was his pube. in reply to TheakstonSkidby #
