Dilemma


JamesEagle

Recommended Posts

I'm due to have an operation on 5 December that means I'll have to give up beer, possibly for years. Problem is that I won't be able to drink anything fizzy.

 

So my dilemma is this: What do I drink? I would normally go for JD and coke, but that will be out of bounds too. I still want to go out and have a drink with the lads, but don't want to look totally gay, which presumably rules out white wine, otherwise my first choice. Can't really go to football or gigs and stand there with a glass of wine. I'm not sure what's left. I know someone who drinks vodka and cranberry, but that doesn't appeal...

 

Any sensible suggestions? Or daft ones?

Vodka & Orange Juice (Screwdrivers)

 

 

 

Backed... But make it a double vodka & Orange Juice. :beerbang:

 

.. And good luck with the operation. Hope it is nothing too serious.

Cheers. It's fairly unpleasant, but not a huge deal.

 

I do like brandy, but I don't suppose you can mix orange juice with it. Maybe I drink it neat and have a huge wait between drinks while others finish their delicious, satisfying, lovely beers. Not that I'm going to struggle with this at all... :unsure:

pernod and black

gin and orange juice

pretty much any spirit straight

 

Or of course you could just drink the beer at one of my local pubs as its nearly always flat there anyway.

Wowser, sorry to hear it, mate. Sounds harsh. Like Howdy said, you might just have to get into straight spirits. You'll be flat on the floor hammered while your mates are on their first pint. :lol:

 

The Vodka & Orange Juice is not a bad idea, though. Good luck!

I once knew someone who would buy their coke, take the top off and leave it until all the fizz was gone and then they would drink it. I've never tried it myself but it worked for them...of course that doesn't help much when you are at a bar...I would suggest asking the bartender for drinks without fizzy ingredients, there should be quite a few to try....just tell your mates that you are expanding your tastes...

That sucks...if I couldn't have beer I'd probably be drinking some Maker's Mark bourbon :chug: whiskey

 

Neat?

 

Anyway ... Stop Press ... operation postponed for at least 2 months. Need to see a consultant again, might have to explore other options. Yay! :beerbang:

Just thought I'd post a brief update in case anyone is interested...

 

Went to see a consultant on Monday, expressed some concerns about having the operation and he recommended I go ahead and have it. He brought in a surgeon who listened to what I had to say and then unequivocally said that I shouldn't have it done! No need to give up beer after all. Slight reservation is that I'll need to go back to the doctor to try to find out why I feel short of breath 100% of the time, but overall this is a big relief. No Nissen's fundoplication for me!

 

The future's beery... :D

    • Debut album 'Portraits' out May 31.   From Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group:   The band was founded a decade ago under the name ”Alex Mari & The Lovers”, with the aim of writing original material. Meanwhile, in order to create good chemistry between the members, the group began playing together on several live shows, performing cover songs of legendary international artists just like Queen, Toto, Police and AC/DC.   After few line-up changes, the band was finalized with three members: Alex Mari  (Michele Luppi Band, Barock Project, Ophiura, plus guest appearances as studio backing vocalist with Rhapsody of Fire) on vocals, Gianluca Pisana on drums and backing vocals, and Sebastiano Barbirato on guitar and backing vocals. For their debut album, they established their new identity with the name, Night Pleasure Hotel.   The first studio chapter of this very promising trio offers a perfect slice of classic American AOR, reminiscent of Survivor (Bickler era), Foreigner, Prism and Toto. The album features contributions from talented special guest stars –  Michele Luppi (Whitesnake), Luca Zabbini (Barock Project, PFM), Paolo Caridi (Ellefson-Soto, Reb Beach, Geoff Tate, Krell), Gianluca Tagliavini (PFM), Roberto Galli (Michele Luppi’s Heaven, Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire) and Iarin Munari (Red Canzian, Roberto Vecchioni, Paolo Vallesi).   Night Pleasure Hotel are sure to become one of the best newcomers of the current melodic rock scene, thanks to their infectious sound, mixed and mastered by Roberto Priori (Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire, Raintimes, StreetLore).   The release of ”Portraits” is scheduled for May 31, 2024 via Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. The CD booklet features introductory liner notes written by Samuele Mannini (Melodicrock.it), while cover art and CD graphics have been developed by Aeglos Art (Wheels Of Fire, Platens, StreetLore, Raintimes, Room Experience, Nightblaze).    The first single of the album, ”Just This Once”, will be launched with an official video on March 28, 2024.   Tracklist:   01. Niko 02. Just This Once 03. We Say Goodbye 04. Walking Through The Horizon 05. You And I 06. Sweet Melodies Of Rain 07. Shivers 08. What I Feel 09. Julia  10. Suddenly 11. For You 12. Quella Sera (Bonus Track)   Night Pleasure Hotel is:   Alex Mari: Lead Vocals, Backing Vocals, Bass, Guitar, Keyboards Sebastiano Barbirato: Guitar, Bass, Backing vocals Gianluca Pisana: Drums, Piano, Backing Vocals
    • Queen Shrike = Queensryche 👍
    • and the new Gunship cd maybe not so much AOR but damn good stuff
    • I've enjoyed pretty much all of their output thus far..inc this  
    • First I've heard of these guys.  A bit of a Danny Wilde vibe on vocals for me.  I like it.
    • New song 'Give The Night Away'.    
    • I can't remember the ins and outs of it, but last year he put up a tweet about how anyone who does cover songs is unoriginal and have no talent, and he would rather listen to the original. I have no issue with the second part of his statement as that is all down to personal taste, but for him to call out bands as unoriginal and lacking talent when bands he listens to have done covers is quite laughable. Every time he posts shit like that I reply and he always ignores me as he knows he is chatting shit. He does it with wrestling as well. Called someone out for instulting a woman wrestler, and saying it's unacceptable to insult wrestlers like that. Pointed out he always calls Brock Lesnar a gorilla and he he should practice what he preaches .. ignored again As I say, always has to pretend he knows everything, but always gets caught out.
