That's because we're all busy buying REAL games in REAL boxes from REAL
shops every time a new one is released.

Nah, it's no good. I can't whip up the same enthusiasm.

Well, nothing really. I was simply countering Chadwick's claim that we were
all out busy buying real games in real boxes from real shops. I wasn't. I
was on the lash in Dublin. Shows what he knows.

As long as it was REAL beer in REAL glasses in REAL pubs, and some
winebar-ist scum FAKE drink, that's OK.

TRUE drinkers drink beer in pubs.

Fear not. It was REAL beer in a REAL pint pot drunk in a REAL pub. We may
have gone into a winebar but only to order pints of mild. The look on their
faces said it all. We were TRUE drinkers, REAL men.


Then it all went downhill and I had my face painted to look like a tiger.

Nothing wrong with that - if you get funny looks tell folk you've
returned from a REAL rugger match for REAL men - tigers versus hammers
or something. They wont dare question real BEER drinkers.

yeah, was in New York and was unimpressed by their alcohol capacity. I'm
not a heavy drinker by Irish standards and over there I felt like an
alcoholic!

Rednecks could probably drink me under the table though, although I'd be
willing to test whether that's the case...

Ow my head hurts. Was drinking Czech Citrus liqeur last night, and
couldn't see straight on my way to work this morning.
