Still Life

I've shamelessly stolen the idea for this picture from Catscratch...

It's Friday and I'm off work for a week (Helena's coming to stay). I'd hang around and write a long involved post, but I've only about 40 pages of my book left to read (I still haven't a clue whodunnit), and that beer's going to get warm if I don't drink it soon, which would be a waste, I'm sure you'll agree.

Enjoy your Friday evening!

Awwww.. It's not shameless!! It's sharing a frosty cold deliciously mind intoxicating beverage with your friends.

Hope it was tasty! Hope the book was awesome! And hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Catscratch:

Thankyou! The book was amazing - I can certainly recommend it (and the beer).

Since you finished your book, may I recommend The Book Thief? I realize I am several years late falling in love with it, so maybe you've already read it. Dunno.

And what in the name of all that is British are you doing drinking a cold beer? Isn't it the whole point to drink them warm? Or did I just say something countryist?

Looks yummy, me I'm on my way down stairs for some mom made spaghetti but I'll have a Corona instead of vanilla coke in your name! ;o)

Laurie:

I'll keep that in mind - it certainly looks interesting, though I notice that they don't appear to have brought out a Greek translation yet.

I've a whole pile to read at the moment. The next one is "Strangers on a Train", which I've been meaning to read for years.

Real ale shouldn't be chilled below normal cellar temperature, but not even the British want to drink warm lager.

Since this is a blog written by a Brit but read exclusively by North Americans, countryism is positively encouraged ;-)

Bee:

Bon Apetit! I had spaghetti this evening, but I'm sure yours will be much better.

Have a nice vacation or "holiday"
I need some beer.

Beer is always better cold. I've never had it with books, but I'm willing to give it a shot. I have so many books to read right now, though, so I fear it may turn me into a raving drunk!

Enjoy your week!

Dan:

Thankyou.

FADKOG:

The only way to make enough time to read the books is to combine it with drinking, at least that's what I find...

Jean Knee said...

I like my chocolate milk icy cold. ahhhhhh!

Brian o vretanos said...

Jean Knee:

That's definitely the only way to have it. Which reminds me - I must get some...

Eleven bottles of beer on the wall!

You take one down, pass it around,

Tracy said...

I wish I could have a good cold beer. This medication that I'm on now I can't drink. And beer was my favorite thing in the world.
Drink one for me too, will you please Brian?

Brian o vretanos said...

Tracy:

Brilliant!

That's crap about the drinking thing. Have you tried the alcohol free beer?

I'll drink another one for you...
