Would they, by chance, be in the area of 5'1" tall and 4'11" wide? Then, send them my way -- I'm only too willing to share. Wink I might have to put them to work chipping wood 'cause Dr. Biggles says I've got to have them wood chips.

But, you know, he was right about everything else... It's gonna be a delicious summer at my house! Very Happy

We were in Bermuda a couple of years ago, and got introduced to two things: smart casual (meaning do your best not to dress like an American tourist), and DARK AND STORMIES. This drink is a phenomenal summer beverage, because it is nearly a perfect combination of flavors with the added value of providing an instant buzz. The correct ingredients are essential, however: Black Seal Bermuda rum and ginger beer. And the proportions are an ounce or an ounce and a half of rum over ice, topped up with ginger beer. I know that the rum and the ginger beer are available here in Chicago (as well as in Bermuda, of course). Dunno about other locations. We brought back a bottle of the rum from Bermuda, and were wondering why we were getting so drunk in Chicago until we realized that we had bought 140 proof rum instead of 80 proof.

Red Roosters??!! What a GREAT sounding drink, melinda!!!

I did a search for the recipe and this is what I found:

Red Rooster #2 (oddly, there was NO listing for a R.R. #1)

Qty. Ingredients
1 1/2 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Cranberry Juice
1 oz. Orange juice
1 oz. Lemonade
1 oz. Ginger Ale



Glass type: Wine Goblet

Directions: Blend all, but Ginger Ale , in a blender with crushed ice until smooth. Pour into a wine goblet and Ginger Ale and stir.

Here's also a link for a wonderous site that I found for all types of Frozen Bar Drinks: who wouldn't want to try a Chi Chi: a vodka, pineapple and coconut cream drink? What about a Dirty Banana, the FBI or a Frisky Kitty?!

"Looks like a picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue and limit my drinking!" (10 points to Gryffindor for knowing who said the above quote!)

Steven McCrosky, Lloyd's character would buy you a tequila shot for that answer, Chicago Bear!

You're a Trivia Fan after my own heart!!!

And I just heard from Harry, "Well done, Master Bear, for the points to our house!"

Very Happy
I immediately recognized the quote (it's the sort of line which sticks, isn't it?) but had absolutely no idea where it was from. Can picture it, though.

Back to drinks: G & T, or Sangria on the patio (someone else's - I haven't got one ... and now I've got an extremely unsightly fence, too, but that's another story...), because they're yummie and easy to make...
Downside: too easy to drink too much and end up (surprisingly) sloshed. Do you have this expression in the States? -- Hey, let's compare expressions for various degrees of 'getting drunk'! Anybody game?

By the way, the heat wave has finally reached us here!!!

Good morning!

Good list there DQ. I can add a few more "Australianisms" for you

untidy... drunk

paraletic.... so drunk you can't move

drunk as a skunk... (don't know why as we don't have skunks in Aus) drunk

flat out like a lizard drinking... can be either really tired and spread out for a sleep flat on your back (or stomach), or on the way to a big binge, or going really really fast

drink up.... getting drunk

maggoted... drunk

beer goggles on.... so drunk you can't see straight (when you take home someone because they look good... and in the morning they are the worst looking person you have ever met)

off your tits... not very nice way of saying a woman is obscenely drunk

elegantly wasted.... that stage of being drunk where everything seems to be ok and you feel and (think you) are acting sober, when in reality you are not.

I know there are more, but my brain is not working this morning. Maybe it is something to do with too much vin rouge yesterday????

We use pissed for drunk or tipsy. Had a giggle at the language difference. Can imagine you thinking that Sally is getting nasty about something when really she is probably just happily tipsy.

well, if i could think of any there were all included in that very extensive list of DQ's.

DQ: we use "pissed" up here too for drunk.

and the next day we "talk to the big white telephone"

let me say that red wine can be the worst hangover ever.

Don't forget the squeeze of lime in your Dark and Stormy!!

Margaritas are THE summer drink for me. I love the recipe from Cook's Illustrated, but you can't drink more than one or two before you're loopy.

Dairy Queen - that was a most exhausting list! And I'm quite exhausted just from reading it. Or I should say, I was, as I read it yesterday, and was so 'inspired' that I opened a bottle of red (Californian Cabernet Sauvignon; Fetzer; the one we marked in our wine book as 'edgy, gets you pissed'), and got a bit carried away.
A lot of the expressions were new to me, and quite a few of them made me laugh out loud. And yes, we do say as drunk as a lord, and also - more surprisingly - drunk as a newt!! (At least drunk as a skunk rhymes...)
The expressions 'talking to the white telephone' and 'yodeling in the porcellain throne' also had me in stitches.
The most interesting for me was 'shikered', because 'schickern' (v, tr) is a regional colloquialism in German. I think of it as very specific to the Ruhrpott (the Ruhr valley conurbation), where I come from. I never knew it was Yiddish in origin but that doesn't come as a surprise, I have found that a number of words which seem to embody the Ruhrpott dialect are actually of Yiddish origin. For instance, if something is really good, we call it toffte or toeffte, and apparently that is from tov = good, as in Masseltov!

I opened a Fetzer Merlot the other day and was very disappointed.
