A pint of Burton Ale please - which is what I was drinking in 1980, when this was taken. (Yes, it's me with the bleached blond hairdo - a VERY brief phase!) . I'm also scarily skinny.

It's new Year and anything may happen to any of us in the next 12 months - lets hope it's all exciting and beneficial. I could never have imagined in 1980 what bizarre gyrations my life went through thereafter, particularly in the following 10 years.

Perhaps a Pusser's Navy rum? Only at New Years and I have to embarrass myself singing.

Happy New Year everyone. Peace & Love.

Happy New Year to you all.
My celebrations are limited by having to dog sit my Springer who, uniquely for a gun dog, is terrified of bangs. Having fun with a bottle of Jameson and a video of Class 40's in the early 1980's however. :)

There's a tube of Paprika Pringles with my name on it. Yours sincerely, Mr Paprika Pringles. I'll have a glass of grape Schloer with it. Or is it grape Schleor? Or is it grape Schleooeeoeoeooegh...?

Happy New Year to all. Maybe it will be, maybe it won't. Seems weird saying it now.

(Places a bottle of Pusser's and a deep azure skull upon the bar in front of Sillyhuron)

Here's a fresh bottle of Pusser's you can hold onto for as long as you fancy it.

If you hear the skull talking to you, please let me know. That would mean your subsequent intake should be metered by the glass.

If I hear you having an extended conversation with the skull, I may be obligated to cut you off from further alcohol.

If you notice me chatting to or with the skull, it might be wise to evacuate the bar area.

If you find you can't restrain yourself from singing ...

The closest first floor karaoke room (down the corridor, past the trophy case, go through the billiards parlor and enter via the faux leopard-skinned door) has just been remodeled as a replica of the one in Pyongyang's Sosan Hotel.

Here's a shot of Jameson for starters ...

Jameson is being invoked quite a lot lately. Some are claiming it has significant restorative effects when dealing with that COVID nastiness.

... Or would you prefer some other brand?

I'll sample any and all that you have access to until I find one I like more than the others.

It's Shloer, and here's the red grape variant with your Pringles ...

Forgive me if I seem to be bragging, but ...
This being the Troll's Head, you'd find yourself comatose after sampling a mere fraction of the ones we can transdimensionally access.

Assuming you mean Old Nation's Electron Brown ...

Otherwise, please advise me what you're requesting ...

I swore I’d see the New Year in with the fireworks on the the telly
And maybe take a dram or two and finish off the jelly.
But all the pubs are open! Hark, the music is a-banging!
Now folks are singing Auld Lang Syne and all the bells are clanging!
And here I am at 2am when I meant to be in bed
Still dancing round the car park with my knickers on my head.

Happy new year to all!
Quiet night at home with the family for us, but outside it was like the Fall of Kabul!

Lloyd may not be on duty. You can switch on the robot barman over there, as an alternative.

That robot barman is useless. The last time he was in operation there was that incident with the flaming sambucas that ruined the ceiling in the 'snug'.
I told them at the time that just because it is a robot barman it doesn't mean that it is any good at juggling.
People never listen.

(Enters bar area, carrying a clipboard and writing upon it ... Sees Trev ... Sighs heavily ... )

Oh, dear ... What are you doing here?

(Consults checklist)

You were confirmed as having left under your own power sometime after midnight but before the karaoke room incident.

Anyway ... You'll have to make do with what's available for the other morning after refugees ...

Hey Trev, ask that robot for a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster. No, really, try it. :evillaugh:

The robot keeps a gold brick and slice of lemon handy, which is useful if the ingredients for a Gargle Blaster are not available. Same net effect.

Fortunately for us the robot is not in operation.
And the Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters have been restricted, only to be used when there are issues with the drains being blocked.
