AWAD a beautiful morning, AWAD a beautiful day, I got a beautiful feeling, all will have something to say.

Come one, come all to the party, and, if you feel guilty about partying, just remember, it's all for a wordy cause. In this party, rules are likes mottos, malodorous and unnecessary, with one exception - sobriety WILL NOT be tolerated. So lighten up, stop worrying about your gout, and celebrate the first year of life for this amazing baby, born with the gift of gab striaght from it's father's womb!
Now if you will excuse me, I must go and bake my famous (in my own lunchtime) chocoholi'c's chocolate cake. TTFN, party on

I'll be celebrating at lunch time. Ah well, so much for the rest of the day. Wellington has WAY too many wine bars ...

Well, maybe just sip of ginger wine, and is that kahlua I see over there? And who made these chocolate eclairs? I might even try the penguin hoosh a bit later on.

I have to decide whether to eat haggis, neaps and tatties with a sip of the finest malt to help it all down. Alternatively, I might go to the other side of town and indulge in a deep fried pizza followed by a deep fried Mars bar and a drop of IrnBru no, maybe not. Instead, I think I'll go to my favourite Auld Alliance restaurant and celebrate with goat's cheese salad and a glass of fine claret, no make that a lovely New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. I'll raise a glass to y'all.

At the end of my two years at at Ruskin College, my comrades were all convinced that I had been given an endorsement, on my Diploma, for Home Brewing. (I had produced between five and ten gallons each week during term time.)
So I have made five gallons of Best Strong Bitter, five of Special Brew Lager and five of Irish Porter that tastes almost exactly, but not quite, like Guinness.
So come and fill up your pint pots - "Come, my little ones, and Drink,/ Before Life's Liquor in it's Cup runs dry!"

I will jostle with Bingley for the chocolate eclairs, after sharing a plate of delicious haggis with Jo - it goes very well with Guinness, incidentally, as well as with Malt.
When the serious work starts, I have a couple of bottles of Jameson's in my bag, which I will share with all like-minded souls.
And that's when we really start to put the language to rights!

I really cannot understand... who ever said we wordiphiles are obsessed with food and drink?

I thought it would be nice to provide at least one item to counter the effects of so much gout-friendly food and drink in this place. For everyone's enjoyment, I have made a couple of big bowls of Spanish gazpacho: lots of tomatoes, cucumber, green pepper and a bit of bread, all blended in the food blender with some olive oil, vinegar and cumin. It is chilled, refreshing and very very delicious. Enjoy!

YUM!

Tziki? That's tzatziki to you :-) how many cloves of garlic did you put in? .. break out some 'Rezina' and Yamas!

I offer some of Baveria's finest brew (virtual ale that is): although L÷wenbrau (pronounced Lerven-brow please) is the most popular amber nectar, Augustiner is what the Baverians hold in highest regard, and they know their beer!

I don't think a virtual piss-up would work that well.

My offering for this day - a re-creation of expensive nights in a cheap restaurant (the nights were very long!) - the ever-brilliant Cafe Mahesh, off P M Road, Fort, Bombay.

To drink:

1 bucket of ice
1 bottle of Old Monk Rum (the finest dark rum in the world, and arguably the finest spirituous liquor in the world)
Steady supply of Thums Ups (almost sickeningly sweet indigenous Indian cola, but somehow perfect with Old Monk)

Keep drinking whilst...

Enjoying Mahesh's famous fish fry - one of the best mid/low-price restaurants in Bombay for seafood.

Since it is not possible to actually bring the spicy masalas of Mahesh to London, I shall settle for - carefully hoarded bottle of Old Monk, cold Coke (no Thums Up here either, alas) and trad Brit fare. Have already started day with fry-up (two rashers bacon, fried toms, beans, fried egg, toast with lashings of butter, marmalade and jam) and will close with fish and chips (and don't you Kiwis say its soggy!)

cheer
