Beery Minty Curry
I originally intended to write this on Monday, but I'm sure everyone knows that blogging about having a beer isn't always at the top of the To Do list.
Last Friday we went down the pub with Allen and Dave for a few pints. Good fun night, even had cold Newcastle Brown which is quite rare, and Allen won the award for Most Outrageous Statement that week. Vicky mis-heard and still was in shock, when she was corrected she nearly cried laughing. Don't worry mate, it's our secret [nudge nudge wink wink].
On Saturday they came over in the evening for a solid night of drinking, curry and films. Specifically:
- Red wine, lager (Asahi, Cobra and Honeywaggle), followed by Absinthe. Well, Allen and Dave had a small shot each, foul stuff.
- Onion bahjees, lamb tikka masala, vege korma, lamb garlic chilla tikka, chicken tikka jalfrezi, rice and peshwari naans.
- We started the evening off on a low by watching The X Factor. The least said about that the better, to be honest. This was followed by Shaun Of The Dead which is excellent, Donni Darko which is also great, most of Deuce Bigalo: Male Gigolo (amusing, especially after the above) and A Fish Called Wanda.
Allen and Dave slept over in the front room, thankfully they were alive the next day and had failed to vomit into household appliances, so after breakfast and showing Allen some Spaced, fancying a bit of change we went... to see Anchorman at the cinema! Not a great film, and some bits dragged on, but the rest of the film is pretty good. My verdict is to go see it when it's cheap.
