I Should Have Taken The Brandy

This whole past month I just haven't been feeling creative or funny or even very interesting, therefore my blog has suffered - so for that, I apologize. When it becomes cold and dreary I sort of shut down and just lay around being lazy when I'm not at work. I promise eventually I'll be feeling back up to par and stop being so lame.

Tonight, I had an interesting night at work. There's these guys who are from England staying in the hotel that is adjacent to our restaurant. They've been coming in for the last few weeks for a few beers after they're done work. They are all from the British Air Force and there are about 25 of them.

Tonight one of them asked me to go for a drink with him on Thursday. I'm going to go even though it seems a bit pointless since they'll be leaving soon and heading back to England, but either way, it'll be fun I'm sure.

To update my dating situations right now; I saw Bro again over Christmas and it was really nice. He brought me a Christmas CD which was sweet, we watched a movie and had some drinks. It was a lot of fun and I really feel comfortable around him. He's gone up North again until February though. I haven't spoken to ADD since Christmas because frankly he's far too ADD for me. I'm hyper as it is, I don't need someone three times as energetic as myself around!

As for the Russian, that's another story entirely (which has to do with the piano bar and the sketchiness there) but I'll save that for another day.

On my way home from work I started coughing in my cab. As he dropped me off the cab driver was telling me that if I have some Brandy with hot water, I'll sleep through the night. I laughed and said that I didn't have any Brandy at my house to which he replied:

"You want Brandy? I go get Brandy! I bring to you right now the Brandy!"

Erm, no thanks but definitely E for effort, and a bigger tip...

Blech. I don't believe in forcing yourself to blog if you're not feeling it. I think it's easier to wait it out and get back in the game when you're inspired. I'll just be here...counting the minutes....hoping someday you'll be back...

A taxi driver who offers to get you things? NICE.

I'm with Ben. Don't force yourself to post! We'll still be here when you're feeling it again.

I would put all the blame on winter. It seems like it's been a theme for us Canadians lately. :)

I totally feel you on the lazy blogging thing. I have it ten times worse, so don't feel bad. Like Ben said, we'll still be here!

You totally should've taken him up on that offer!

Feel better soon! :)

You may have noticed that no one's really feeling like posting much of late, and so take the time to focus on what's really important: using men as a delivery vehicle for brandy.

i want your taxi driver.

AHH. I FORGOT: I'M COMING TO CALGARY ON FRIDAY.

uhm. i'll email you regarding that RIGHT NOW.

That is hilarious that he offered to go get you brandy. And yes, next time, take the brandy.

I, personally, mix brandy with hot milk and honey. It's something my mom has made me since I was a kid when I am sick to help me sleep.

Which also explains the rampant alcoholism.

Ha ha ha... maybe you should've taken him up on his offer to get you Brandy. Is it really that slow in the cab world right now? Lol.

Also! Go buy some honey if you don't have it already. It's great in tea (and other brandy mixtures, I'm sure) but when you heat it, it does something that isn't as helpful as it is raw. I just read something about this and it helped me with a bad cough. Try taking a teaspoon of honey (uber sweet, but not disgusting) at least once a day. You'd be surprised how much it helps... I stopped coughing almost immediately. Just a suggestion :)

Going out with a bloke with a brilliant accent is never pointless! Pish posh!!

I hear you about the writer's block. It's been painful lately.

Curious about the Russian though. :)

I have been sick and the same thing is going on with my blog =(

Did the driver mention if the Brandy had 1 or 2 roofies in it ;-)
