Druggy, Boozy Friday

Just one week Down Under, and I'm down with a flu :(

Perks of sleeping with a doctor? *wink wink*

FREE DRUGS!

Pumped meself with meds, plus there isn't anything good ol' Vicks cannot fix.

Vicks

With me sick and all, guess what me lovely housemate and I decided to do? Mix meds with booze!

On a Friday afternoon, we thought it would be fun to try out some cocktails, since housemate Sharky is somewhat a cocktail connoisseur (he had all the equipment anyway). Sharky wasn't working that day (unfortunately Tim was), and I swear to God I was feeling a lot better then, so I made him make a drink for me. Had my favourite, a stiff Cosmopolitan. Yum yum.

Let's just say, Tim was not at all amused to see me in my half-drunken stupor when he got back from work. But really, I felt better! After some persuasion, in the end, he decided to join us, so after dinner (Korean food ... mmmmm ....), we had another round of drinks. This time, we had something more "terror".

Sharky
Sharky doing his thang.

More Booze
That's only like, one-tenth of his stuff. Tsk tsk :p

Flambe
Trying to flame the drink, but sadly failed. Will have to try it again.

Booze
One shot of Blue Curacao and another of Bailey's cream.

Drink Up
Tim drank the mixed concoction (if I'm not mistaken, there was Sambuca in there as as it tasted a bit like licorice).

All in all, I had a Cosmopolitan, a bit of that funny blue-grey drinky thingy, and finished off with a lovely raspberry martini that Friday. It wasn't enough to get us drunk (although Tim's face was beetroot red, apparently due to lack of some enzymes which break down alcohol or some thingamajiggy), but we slept very well that night. Well, at least he did, 'cos my flu got a whole worse the next day.

So, boys and girls, the moral of the story is - eat, drink and be merry today, for tomorrow the flu gets a lot worse.

Thank you, thank you.

PS: By the way, I did NOT mix the meds with booze. Boys and girls, you know you're not supposed to mix meds with alcohol, right? I had them with water. THEN I had the booze :p

PPS: Shhhh, don't tell my mother!
