It’s not great but you sort of know what you are getting. It’s kind of alright if you are waiting for a train. 

I went to one WS that was in a converted bank building. They had a lot of beers on tap, pretty cheap. Sports on tv. Food I say chips were probably alright. I had a chicken burger and Guinness once. Alright for a few pints in the day. 

 

They open at 8am aswell. I'd quite like to work night shifts, clock  off and stop off for a few pints on my way home first thing in the morning just as everyones doing their busy commute or the school run. It could be a Tuesday morning but it would be my Friday night. I'd get a few more beers from the shop around 10 am to drink at home watching the daytime soaps, order a takeaway at lunchtime and pass out. It would be lovely way to disengage with the world.

It’s not bad having something like that. Cheap, almost always open, not too uptight. If you’re in a city on business and don’t know what to do, it’s pissing down and don’’t want to spend 59 quid on lunch. 

I know people specifically take a ferry to the city to go for lunch at WS every Saturday. I’ve realised people don’t want much. 

I remember living in a Harvester before a 4pm shift. Swing swifts! The jet lag of working to booze.

Back on the litre cans of brown ale.  Freezing sleet. Some cheap bottle red usually used to clean windows.

There's a distinct trampiness about you sometimes, anyone ever tell you that? :lol:  The missus and the baby are the making of you otherwise a couple of wrong turns in your life and you woulda been quite happy with a bottle of white lightning and a dry doorway somewhere :lol:

Yanks have to be pensioners to drink, don't they, yet they are allowed to drive when they are about two years of age? This always amused me in films. They have this weird puritanical attitude to drink, underage drinking being this massive crime.  

(I'm partial to exaggeration of course haha).

Nah, a friend of mine told me similar.  Apparently boozing in the day is frowned upon in America.  Fuck knows what the truth is, its all second hand info to me.

That explains why Americans go crazy in Europe. They go to Pink Palace in Corfu and go mental. I went there to detox. You have a few beers and take speedboat to a rock. It’s not life threatening.

Billy Bryson discusses American drinking in one of his books. He said when an American neighbour invites you for a drink he literally means a drink; you sit down and you'll have one bottle of Budweiser, then he'll say, ''well Bill, this has been great, we should do this again'', and you depart haha.

It is about the most un-British thing I know.

I despise bottled beer, it throws my calculations all off, I need to know what I'm drinking in pints.  Newcastle Brown, thats the only thing I'll take in a bottle.  They have these little dinky bottles too, you see Clint Eastwood drinking em in the monkey movies.

Yet still they voted for Trump. I mean, the 45 % or whatever who voted for him must have been drunk when they did, and the remaining 55 % should be continuously drunk afterwards.

Do you really invited people to your house for a drink if your British? 

Firstly you already in the pub. You might stagger back to start burning some ready meals but the formality sounds a bit one of those.

Sounds great! I would also recommend Shepherd's Pie. 

Ive never had the pleasure of an authentic one with lamb. Ive enjoyed it with beef. When people make it with beef they also tend to leave out the cumin. So it must be very different, and way better, at an English pub. My friend makes it with sweet potato, beef and the paprika I grew, its nice too.

Love how the potato is both creamy and crispy!

We made cottage pie at school in 4th year home economics. Feminism. I remember because my friend dropped his on the way home. That’s why you have a Head bag. Superior stitching to a coop plastic bag that splits outside the cornershop and your cottage pie goes kesplat by the bus stop.

I dont really go for much liquor, but it might be fun to buy a vintage red wine and save it for your 22nd birthday?

"Vintage" being any bottle that isn't brand new wine, will say like "Cabernet Franc 2016" or whatever. A new bottle may not be produced to be shelf stable. Anyways, just a thought.

Shit, I remember Head bags, those used to be the thing back in the day.  After that it was the blue Umbro ones that everyone seemed to have:

umbro-speciali-italia-backpack-p36457-22

That or the record bags with Slammin' Viynl and Spliffy and Eclipse on em.

They were actually a tennis brand. Head were a brand tennis racket. But suddenly everyone had one. I didn’t I had this shit square blue Nike bag. But it secured my cottage pie. I also remember making a shirt in home ec. That was a disaster. 

No curtains, no turn ups, bound for the grave.
