voilà

Greetings to all.

u.v.ray. First poem published in a U.K magazine called Candelabrum in 1993. Since then I've had work published in various mags around the world, two poetry chapbooks and a collection of short stories.

I come out mostly only at night.

I drink whisky. The drink that men drink.

I love the occasional (Christmas) glenfiddich; me being female, whisky doesn't seem to have a gender requirement, that I know of (double-checks to make sure) nope

Good to have you here, honey And you try to pinch my whiskey, we'll have a serious fight, mate.

Muchas gracias, Tepelus.

I don't mind a drop of Talisker or Laphroaig. Though truth be told, failing that, I'll drink almost anything.

One of my life maxims: whisky and a packet of salt & vinegar crisps; it's a meal in itself.

Welcome!

I drink Chivas and soda on the rocks. Got hooked on Chivas at the same time I got hooked on golfing. The two go hand-in-hand.
