I know someone who gets like that, but on red wine. Terrible really.

I have even become slightly aggressive after consuming much vodka, which is not me at all.

I have also ruined peach schnapps for myself after getting absolutely destroyed on it one night at a house party (I was drinking it straight as part of a drinking game; which, by the way, should only ever be played with beer). As well as having to clean up the mess the next morning (and borrow a friend's shirt), I now feel violently nauseous at the smell or taste of peach, schnapps or otherwise.

Stopped drinking straight double-whiskeys about ten years ago, tended to get a little aggressive on it. I'm normally a mild-mannered chap, but friends noticed that whiskey made me way more argumentative and a bit of a tit generally. Only have the one or two on the rare occasions I drink it at all since then.

I had that, but it only lasted a couple of years (!). Still avoiding bourbon, though.

I was infallibly right about everything ever, and nobody but nobody was allowed to disagree, and would be hectored until they did agree with me. Kind of like your average SWP member, but less slurring and finger-pointing than them...
I'm always like that when I'm drunk, people don't seem to have a problem with it though. They find it funny more than anything.

One memory is of poking the bouncer at Oil Can Harry's in the chest (it was the easiest bit of him to reach, and I'm six foot) and telling him that people like him were part of the reason global warming was a problem, because they didn't give a shit about the issues.

Of course, that was actually well after the worst of it.

I think that was a totally reasonable thing to do, and quite logical. Bouncers are the primary cause of CO2 emissions between 11pm and 2am...

In my case, with a London accent, I really didn't endear myself to bouncers at all...

Well actually about 20 miles north, but lived in New Cross (evil place) for a while too. And my girlfriend lived in Pinner for ten years as a kid, though Cork born.

Mine is RP, and becomes much more pronounced when I'm drunk.

My brother is the opposite (he's still there), he speaks well sober, though with an accent, but then turns into a weird cross between Kenneth Williams and Chas and Dave when slaughtered. He's weird.

All brothers are weird. One of mine votes Sinn Fein, and can't hold his drink worth a damn. Three pints and he's legless.

Virtually all my cousins on the Donegal side are Shinners, I just bite my lip when they start singing 'Ra' songs, Donegal is not the right place to quibble...

I remember cheering the English rugby team against the Irish in a pub in Donegal. That would have been in the mid-Eighties, mind, and Ireland were shite.

You both have London accents ? Does one of you speak like Michael Caine ?

Michael Caine has a good accent.

This thread is almost like the Sibín II... is a merger/acquistion in order?

More like either Kenneth Branagh or - I like to think - Ian McKellen. Kate P could comment.

Not quite, I toned it down a lot when I moved here, nobody understood me before that. The irony of Cork people having a problem with my accent was not lost on me. I sometimes still just have to leave when surrounded by Norries virtually singing to each other...

Aye. The lovely thing about the forum format is that it requires more imagination than other media communication forms. The images you get while reading your first books are often echoed in this format which is a good thing.

Ignore johnfas's talk about mergers and acquisitions, he's just trying to create employment for himself!

Ah jagermeister, deadly stuff.
On a visit to Munich a few years ago, one of the highlights was a drunken meeting with Jagi the Jagermeister Moose and his scantily clad Jagerettes. Smile

I don't touch the stuff any more. Actually I'm a kind of "three pints and he's legless" kind of fellow. A lightweight!

Is that Pinner in Harrow ? I lived there for a couple of years in the olden days.

Yep, she went to Nower Hill Comprehensive, and lived on the same road as the bloke who played Poirot.
