happy xmas to me part II

right. the student loan arrived. i haven't gone to sweden (yet). i have, however, ordered a second hand violin off ebay, taken the kids to the vets, painted my kitchen and treated myself to these:

for those thinking they have gone blind, that's a very poor photo of a bottle of 10 y/o macallan - matured in bourbon and sherry casks - and a 12 y/o 'special release' lagavulin (which we realised the next day was meant to be drunk 1 part whisky 2 part water. we were doing it straight.)

which *would* be fine. except i've had an extremely drunken weekend, about a third of the whole lot left and a lot of bruises.

damn my eyes (and my liver)

edit: 6.55pm. the viledin has arrived - hurrah! the teach yourself violin book hasn't - boo! however, i *have* just knocked out a screechy but accurate version of twinkle twinkle little star, after it being in my possession for fifteen minutes. vanessa mae, watch your back.

Most bottles tend to look like that first one once you've had a few...but I know nothing about whiskey-- just give me a jamesons or jack and I'm set!

violins can sound kinda cat-strangulatory, but I love violin lady of Arcade Fire :)

happy nearly-xmas!
