What I did at the Green Man

Friday night - we were having a few beers at the main stage. My friends didn't think much of the Aliens (but I like them cos they've got that very cute keyboard player from the Beta Band who sticks his tongue out when he's concentrating) so they buggered off to the Folky Dokey stage.

Their loss, because they missed out on the full bottle of Tesco Finest Chilean Merlot I found on the ground, and I had to drink it all myself. Then, on my way back to my tent, fairly well-oiled, I ran into a couple of other people I know, and had at least two pints of strong lager in the bar.

Felt like shit on Saturday.

Lots of people insisted on telling me, "You were really pissed last night!" Fair enough, but I don't remember seeing the half of them.

As if that wasn't bad enough, I ran into a girl I work with, who informed me that she'd had to escort me back to my tent at three am because I was wandering around, completely lost. I can't remember any of this at all.


Then I didn't go to bed last night at all. I feel very weird right now.

Update: This post's crap, I know. But Bob has gone and apologised on my behalf to the entire interwebbing community. (Cheers Bob!) Normal service will resume eventually.


  • Spinny,
    If you get pissed on chilean merlot, is it considered a heart healthy drunk?
    Been there, although not lately!

  • Good to have you back Spin.

  • If the bottle was open when you found it, then you're a brave girl than I. In more than one sense.

  • Not remembering is bad, Spin. You need to watch out for the Irish disease.

  • Bottle wasn not, I repeat not, open. I'm not that daft.

    I have just had 4 hours sleep and feel vaguely hallucinatory now and there is no food in the house and the Chinese across the road isn't open. Bollocks.

    I never remember anything after a few drinks, Dave. It has its benefits.

  • Nah nah nah nah nah - I'm being wilfully misconstruded here.

    I'm trying to make a point about how blogs work, is all - and I think you're playing it a bit coy here Ms. Spinster, inveterate self-narrator of your own mythology that you are. I mean, Ferchrissakes! Haven't I gorn on record enough times saying what a killer diller when she's dressed to the hilt blogger the Spinster is - to the extent that half her coterie of slavish, gossipy devotees think I'd drag her down the aisle by the curlicues of her lustrous norn ironed mane as soon as look at her.

    I was just trying to say that even one of your less *obviously* brilliant posts still demonstrates why you are such a *brillo* blogger...Is that not OK?

    I'm reminded of the time I said to my work colleague Carole, genuinely and sincerely - oh you look very nice today Carole and she shot back at me saying "Oh!! So I don't usually loook nice then????"

    Sometimes, I really don't know why I bother.....

  • I get memory loss sometimes. then enormous guilt for things I'm not sure that I actually did. Then eventually someone comes and tells me i didn't do anything wrong. then I go out drinking again. and then lose memory again. d'oh!

  • MILES: "If anyone orders Merlot, I'm leaving. I am NOT drinking any fucking Merlot!"

  • Is it Mer-lot or Mer-low. I've always called it mer-lot. Am I common? Or is calling it mer-low a bit like having fish knives i.e. stupid aspiring posh?

    By Blogger Billy, at 8:43 AM  

  • Oh Billy, dear me. How embarrassing. It's Mer-low. Would you like me to delete that post for you?

    Anyhow, Sideways, yes, fantastic film, but there's nowt wrong with a bit of merlot now and again.

    Where would all thoses Bordeaux classics be without a percentage of merlot to take the tannic edge off the Cabernet Sauvignon, eh?.

  • If you were that drunk, it's probably best you don't remember it. And count down the hours until the Chinese reopens.
