Ha! The books my friend reads, I end up with anyway, which adds to my TBR list. So no chances there.

However the outcome and how many pints or liters will go down the throats, I wish you a lovely evening. I'll be off now, having my Zinfandel. :-)

I'm drinking absinthe. Haven't been reading anything today, but have been closely observing people as I feign staring vacantly at the table-top: That common labourer next to me knows perfectly well that the smoke from his pipe is nauseating me, and the chap in the corner who is sketching on a drawing pad? I heard him speak to the waiter and his accent is, like, completement toff. The green fairy rules.

You might have a heavy head then today, Monica. I actually didn't touch my wine and had a double chocolate flavoured coffee instead.

Never had Absinthe, but I heard it makes you rather um... floaty and that fast.

it depends on the book that i'm reading.. e.g., if i'm reading a book like Blepharospasm i would drink gin with tonic, and if i'm reading a book like Writing and Difference (Routledge Classics) i would drink strong coffee!

That sounds nice. Am on antibiotics, so it's non-alcoholic for me. :-)

Oh, I'd love one... damn antibiotics. But I just had a caramel coffee. Nice, too.

Coca Cola, only the original, can't bear diet drinks. And I really hate when I order coke in a bar or cafe and they give me Pepsi without asking. If they don't have coke I'll have an orange or something. Remember when they used to do the Pepsi challenge thing on tv? I always wanted to do that. I can even tell whether my coke comes from a can, my favourite, a bottle or a machine.
Stella, I also love fruit teas, my favourite is raspberry and cranberry, but I've never had a flavoured coffee. I know cafes do them but how do you do one at home? Can you buy the flavourings in an ordinary supermarket?

Yes yes, you can buy them. Look up beanies coffee on Google. I tell you they are SO damn good. No need for sirups, etc. It's all in the beans. You can get them as decaf, too. Absolutely adore their coffee and I'm normally a tea drinker.

Please excuse the intrusion. I wouldn't usually post but this one caught my eye and ... well just made me ponder. I think it would depend upon the hour of the day. In the morn it would be tea. During the day, the drink of choice would be coffee, which more oft than not is allowed - unintentionally, I might add - to cool to such a temperature that any 'real coffee' lover would refuse to drink it - but I still do. Come 'tea time' I rarely get the chance to read but if I were to be caught doing so, it would indeed, once again, be a cup of tea. When evening comes around and time can be spent reading proper then it would have to be with a glass of wine in hand, Rosť or white but not red. Red wine is very much like my husband - more oft than not it disagrees with me.

I was planning to drink some refreshing green tea, bu the power is out from the the merlot is out early

I'm actually just having a fresh made banana shake. I never throw away the really brown bananas. If you let them get really black outside, then they're absolutely great for a shake: sweet and soft. Mixed in fresh milk: gorgeous.

Usually tea or coffee, but that often means a fancy flavored variety. I don't like tisanes or herbal teas - taste like bath water - but enjoy rooibos, green or white tea with fruit or other flavorings. I like very weak tea and very strong coffee, Hot Lava Java is a favorite or the flavored ranges from Whittards and Dreamy Bean. Amazon sell some of these things, but for some reason they charge a lot for them...

Must be a different Vimto to what we have down here in the south west which is some sort of fizzy soft drink commonly used as a topping to scrumpy to disguise the bloody remains of undissolved rat from the brewing process.

Mmm .. do you make that like a smoothie?

Sounds good: a variant on cider & black?

It's probably the same Vimto - 30 years ago it was mainly a northern drink but I believe they're national now. It's available in both cordial and canned, carbonated forms. I'm not especially keen on the latter but drink a lot of the former.

I suppose my staple drink is tea, though; and, right now, a nice big glass of Bruichladdich. Feels nice but doesn't do anything for accurate typing.

No idea how you make smoothies, but I just pop the banana into a blender, pour milk over it and blend. Done. Really delicious and a good 'in between meal'. :-)

Arrh! 30 years ago is when I'm thinking as I had to stop drinking scrumpy when I was seventeen due to the negative effects of excessive consumption.
