    This is how markets work. I can see no reason why they'd be a demand for redbull therefore it's price drops.

    Yeh, it's same for that or a bottle of Stella at quite a few places I know.

    My favourite mixers are always expensive though!

    I love Malibu and Baileys with coke. (The quadruple malibu & coke is my finisher )

    Yeah, it takes about half an hour, but I was *stupidly* wearing shoes that weren't designed to be walked in, let alone danced in all night. The prospect of taking another step almost reduced me to tears.

    Besides, the walk would have taken me past a park which is a bit dodgy in the daytime... at night it's the sort of place that you'd cross over to avoid - only on the other side is an equally scary block of flats lol

    Expensive as it was, the cab was oh, so welcome when it pulled up lol

    Hooray! I had the 100th post! lol

    <so easilly pleased> lol

    Malibu AND Baileys?! with Coke?! omg lol - sorry, but that sounds awful! lol then again, I hate Malibu with a passion, so the thought of QUADRUPLE amounts of it in one, URGH :|.

    I think the worst drink I've ever seen was a Kronenburg and Baileys mixed. It actually went lumpy. And my mate downed it. Vile. lol

    Edit: or, there's the JD and Southern Comfort in the same glass - I serve it to a guy at work all the time. Smells nice, but do not be fooled - it is MINGING! lol

    Ooops, I meant as separate drinks! Malibu + Coke, Baileys + Coke. I've never tried them mixed. Actually, I probably have done this (at a house party ages ago) - but then me and my mate got everything in the cupboard, and poured it into a fruitbowl and mixed! That was horrible - and I think you can guess the end result.

    :eek: Simply rank. Kronenburg is bad enough on its own!

    I quite like Goldlager (sp??? I can't remember the proper name, lol) though - the aniseed flavour shots with bits of 'gold' in them. Mmmm.

    That's (Tia Maria) been in our cupboard for ages, isn't it coffee flavoured or something? I hate coffee flavoured anything (which isn't a hot drink) - ice cream, liquor, sweets ewww!

    AHA!! aaah, you see, that makes a LOT more sense lol - I'm so pleased they aren't all mixed in as one lol.

    Hehe. aah, but what would a party if there wasn't a fruit bowl mix! (I admit that yes, I've been the one to mix in EVERYTHING before) - I think the best party was where there was a paddling pool, which as the night wore on had not just water in it, but custard powder, gravy and hot chocolate powder too. That *was* an interesting night! lol

    I've only had one tiny hangover in my life, and that was enough! I've not suffered from a hangover since, I've been lucky.

    Out of interest, WHY do you want the worst possible hangover?! lol believe me, even the moderate wimpy version I had was bad lol.
    The best ways is to totally mix your drinks. Go with vodka, beer and liqures. And shots. Tequila is the worst in the world, and after about 4 of them, you'll be well on your way. Basically, mix everything up, drink large quantities of everything, and do plenty of shots. And don't eat anything so you get pissed very quickly. And to totally top of the "If the world could just implode now I'd really appreciate it" feeling - only get about 3 hours' sleep Oh, lord I should put a health disclaimer on here somewhere - Here we go;

    Be warned though - should you attempt that, there will, I garuntee, be vomiting in large quantites lol. So don't wear your nicest shoes lol.

    I've never had it on its own so I couldn't say! I don't like the fact that the top of the bottle goes crusty after a while though. Ming mong.

    LOL, well - there was the washing up liquid to top it all off. HEHE, gravy made it in there simply because we were raiding my friend's stock cupboard and that's the first thing our drunken hands could grab.

    I almost dropped some pasta lumps... oh wait! no! lol we put in some creamy pasta sauce in there too! lol - but yes, I wanted to put in the actual pasta, but someone actually stopped me from doing it lol. Damn them! lol

    Yep - I work behind a bar at the moment. (Obviously not at this very moment because that would be near impossible lol)

    Good fun actually, the best job - great meeting people, and a piece of piss when it isn't busy! lol

    LOL, I spose!

    I just get hyper whilst I'm drunk (hense ending up sliding down escalators and pouring edible substances into paddling pools...) the day after I tend to feel just fine. If anything, it's the lack of sleep that really gets me!

    I blame it mostly on alcohol. I went out with a couple of mates today for a secondary school reunion and I was getting quite worried when I began to make my own way home at 11:45pm.

    I don't worry about pickpockets too much as I don't put my stuff in such stupid places, crying out "please come and steal this from me".

    What I'm worried about though are drunk thugs or whatever who might starting picking on me for no reason. It has never happened to me before but sometimes, I do get some nasty looks from people for no reason and it's very intimidating.

    I do believe the police are improving as I saw quite a lot of police patrolling today but I believe other measures could help. I was happy when they planned to introduce a curfew for under 16s who are causing trouble and are hanging around acting anti-socially in groups of 2 or more. They have no right to go there and make it miserable for people. No wonder I don't see many tourists around anymore. You even get 11-14 year old girls who think they are 'all that' and going around acting mature while wearing close to nothing.

    Despite this, it won't put me off going there, since I only go like a few times a year. I'm planning to go probably once or twice more during the summer but I will probably be back home a bit earlier this time, like 9-10pm. I do have a problem with time though. I told my parents I would be back home today at 9-10pm and I didn't realise it was like 11:30pm when a friend asked me.
