Bad News

They say that bad news/bad luck comes in threes.

If fucking only.Thats all I'm saying.

I hit a new level on the oul' gargling front this week,and me
after being reasonably good for ages.Last week can't be
counted as someone gave me a litre of Paddy,but in fairness
to me,I got nearly four days out of it,but there was also trips
to the pub.And wine and beer to help with the pressures of
cooking and eating,and online gambling.

I mean,who would have thought they were serious about that
50 K.P.H. speed limit on the Naas dual-carriageway,fifty,for
fucks sake,three lanes,straight road,broad daylight,5.15 A.M.,
dry conditions,140 K.P.H.,2 more penalty points,cunts.

So I was rooting around for a drink yesterday and the choice
boiled down to beer,which wasn't what was required,Baileys (puke)
or a bottle of Mulled wine,talk about Hobson's choice.Still,it
wasn't too bad once I got halfway down.

I mean,if you were doing 50 in those conditions,you might be in
danger of stepping out of the car to see if you were stopped.

Poor old sausage. you have my deepest sympathies, especially this week. Alcohol, it really should be left in the hands of that tee-total crowd. When folk like us get on our hands on it disaster occurs.

You're sounding more and more like Brewski in your self-destructiveness, AB. I feel another trial coming on.

AB, that post hits the mark with me after this weekend... not about the driving stuff, just the booze. It doesn't help that the time difference means the football doesn't finish until about 3am, by which time you've been in the pub for a good 15 hours. But, my God... I keep getting flashbacks that make my toes curl so much that my legs are in danger of breaking.

Some of those speed limits are so fucking stupid and you feel such an idiot if you abide by them - jesus it's embarrassing when 80 year olds on bicycles overtake you!

I hate the speed limit they have on a road I use alot it goes from 30-40-30-50-60-30-40 you get the idea. It PIsses me off. Now I have no objection to speed limits on this road it was called the black death after all. But please could the local gov show some common sense. Then i realise this is the local gov, and as such they are not capable of common sense.
As for drink driving etc when we have computers driving and following all speed limits exactly, what will happen to the speeding ticket cash bonanza the local govs get?

Fmc.,now that would be interesting.

Footsie,I am not self destructive anymore,as I said,that was a good week for me.

Binty,bad as the standard of football was,we'll miss it when its over.

Agreed Stella,but still,the only reason I'd ever be under the speed limit is when some oul' shite is holding me up.

Charle,I don't think the Government has much to worry about on that score.

Shit, AB... those weren't the kind of flashbacks I meant!
