Lend me a tenner and I'll buy you a drink, understand? :)

I'd buy a drink for any redheaded lady. Can't narrow it down to just ten of them!

And I'll steal a drink (made up of dead drinks and fag ash cans) for Shane and me and anyone else who needs a little pick me up to brave the worst.

Oh, and I'll buy a drink (with my beautiful double book-keeping skills) for all the Tee-totals, understand? And, finally, I'll buy a drink for any bugger who is dead and gone because they are the ones who need it the most, right?

So here's a jar to him and her and it -- those dead gone fuckers who never gave a shit. (they're mostly bad poets -- hence the bad poet style).

And, I might even reach into your pocket and buy one for Dylan. And, if I get your wallet and you're rich, I'll buy one for a Thompson and a mother and an old friend lost. And, if that isn't, enough, I'll buy one for Morrissey and Richie and bloody Max Mordon and all the poor boys lost.

And then, of course, last of all and most important, I'll work for an hour to buy old and lovely Susie whatever drink she pleases!

Your very good health. :)

Hmmm, let's see. I'd but (:tongue) a drink for...

1) myself, because we're out someplace nice. I'll have a merlot

2) Sherlock Holmes, because something exciting is sure to happen during dinner. He'll have a sherry.

2) My brother, because he's moving far away soon. He'll have something girly that he'd never admit to.

3) Myself, why not? Could kinda go for glass of port.

4) Not cray, he's a loser, so I'll drink his Guinness

5) qW, because I want to wax that eyebrow. He needs tequila.

6) Myself, I could go for something harder--tequila, limes and salt sounds about right.

7) Haggis, because he has exquisite taste in all things, gets the impossible to find rum he recommended me once.

8) MacAllister, because she's awesome (Put her at the top, actually) Make it 2 of whatever she's having!

9) ...I really need some water.

10) whoever drives me home.

11) and Haskins, just to see how many it takes for him lose his cool. :D

gonna leave the well spotted 'but'. (coz it's about drinkin' I guess...)


So, self love? That's my favourite kinda love.


As for Haskins, reckon he'd drink the devil himself under the table...

I'd buy a drink for all the little pencil-pushers who could organise my meeting any of the famous people being mentioned in here.

(The famous people could buy *me* a drink, they're certainly rich enough!)

I'd invite Jesus over to the house for dinner and ask him to turn the water into wine. ;)














What? :Shrug:

(Like those of you who really know me didn't see that coming?)

... none.
If I did they'd just think I was trying to ingratiate myself,
and kiss up. Or that I was just an autograph hound,
AND THEY'D PROBABLY BE RIGHT !

"Get lost, bud." they'd say with a justifiably cold, hard stare.

"Very well, Mr Gillespie," :e2bummed:

Since the OP's long gone, and this thread's on permanent derail:

Said the drinker who's only experienced Fosters and never Coors Light.:D

That's not a knife; *this* is a knife!

Oh wait, wrong reference... :tongue

Yeah, I've had Fosters once or twice, but not Coors Light. As far as I know, Coors isn't even available in Australia - at least not in the regular bottle shops.

Loved that scene from Crocodile Dundee in the New York alley. Fosters used to sponsor the old Paul Hogan comedy show.

Cliff Face

Oh, I didn't know that. Interesting...

Who do you think could drink more Fosters: Crocodile Dundee or Mad Max? :D

Chase

Mick, not Max.
