I was driving and I wanted to be exceedingly alert since there might be some of those crazy MacRumors members on the road :D

I had (in no particular order):
3 pints of beer
1 coffee with Amarula and Frangelico
1 Bacardi with Coke
1 glass champagne

Feel pretty darned good this morning!

I had a very light evening, which was just as well as it happened...but that's another story.

4 cans of wife beater (aka Stella), a shot of something, and that was about it.

Duff-Man says....you were *driving* and still drank 3 pints, a loaded coffee etc etc......you should be feeling pretty lucky this morning - that you didn't either get pulled over and arrested or caused some accident.....oh yeah!

Mr_Ed says....Duff-Man does not know in what period of time Mr_Ed consumed that alcohol, nor how quickly he consumed any one of those drinks, nor how much food he consumed along with the drinks, nor how much Mr_Ed weighs. :) For the record, I consumed that at a fairly slow rate between the hours of 6:45pm and 2:00am with food along the way.

Oh yeah.

[Edit: forgot about the food :)]

As further proof that I am becoming my parents, I had nothing - nothing - alcoholic to drink last night, and capped off my fun evening of cleaning the house while my 4-year-old danced with the New year's Eve show songs (she had "to show the people on TV her moves", according to her) with a few joyful minutes of watching Tom Green (Greene? who cares...) kiss Amy Weber (few know of her, but one of my brothers is an avid - edesignuk - caliber fan). Blech!

I had a pretty heavy night. For my standards anyway.

Started with a beer.
A Coconut Rum drink.
2 glasses of white wine.
4 glasses of red wine.
Coffee with Cognac.
1 Glass of champagne.
2 Vodka Martinis.

I started at 7 tough until 5 in the morning. I ate for 3 hours and I danced for like 4 hours straight so I was doing fine this morning. Tired but fine.

2 very hefty shots of JD & half a bottle of Aussie Chardonnay... fairly restrained by usual standards.

Purdey's for the dry horrors...

let's see

at 19:30 i drank one glass of "Sekt" ("sparkling wine" translation by altavista) with little bit of orange juice) Brand: Henkell Trocken

then dinner with Salmon Ragout in 'sheet paste' (altavista again) and a beef roast with "rösti" and broccoli
after that i left home to the party where i drank
3 glasses of nameless gin +lemon juice + lemonade (hard to say how much because i never emptied the glass)
1 0,33 liter beer out of the bottle... Brand: local "Mohren Pfiff" perhaps not really political correct but hey in 1834 weren't so picky about that
then we made some 'mulled claret' where i drank 2 small glasses including stroh '80... you gotta drink that carefull
after that it was 24:00
then we played Singstar and went to a local club where i drank another small 0,33 beer and danced a little bit untill 4 am

not that much after all but was very funny

Newcastle is one of my favorites. Not familiar with Stone. I will be going to a pub that has a large selection of beers this evening so I thought I might be able to try one, but their web site does not list a distributor in Florida :(

I thought that I would participate with my volunteering activity. We invited visitors at "First Night" into our Church for a free concert. I assisted with serving hot chocolate from 7:30 till almost 11pm. So my hands got quite sticky at times, the valve tended to leak. A good time was had by all. I enjoyed greeting people. So my drink was several cups of hot chocolate. :D

It was my birthday, and it was a great one, so I double bottled it.

1 bottle Disarano Amaretto (to celebrate my birthday)
1 bottle of Champagne (to celebrate New Years)

Needless to say I am in pretty piss poor shape today, but last night was a blast!!

Let's see, I had at least 7 shots of tequila (not really sure, I was just drinking it out of a cup :eek: ), one shot of Jeggermeister, a 24 oz of Sierra Nevada, and a glass of champagne. This was, of course, over the period of 8 hours.

I didn't have anything to drink and went to bed at 11:40.

I slept in, woke up and rode for three hours. So right now I'm pretty trashed. :p

I am currently drinking a bucket of Endurox.

I finished my own 12 pack of bud light, and had several (3 games of beirut, two funnels) communal busch lights. At some point someone kept waving a bottle of jack daniel's around and i had a couple of swigs of that. And jungle juice. I had some jungle juice too.

someone had the presence of mind to take some pictures along the way, and my friend has already uploaded a composite pic:

Good choice on the Stones. All I had was 1 Stone Double Bastard, which according to Stone is the Arrogant Bastard's evil big brother ;)
