Howdy. I'm a journo who specialises in writing about booze (yes that is a real job). However I will happily whore myself out and write about pretty much anything, so commissions welcome (as are food parcels and offers of no strings sex). kthksby.

» The nicest thing someone's ever done for me

American Splendour
A few years ago I was doing a ski season in Colorado working as a liftie. I'd only been there a few weeks (just before xmas) and hadn't had my first paycheck yet, so was as skint as a skint thing.

I was in the queue at the supermarket waiting to pay for a pack of Ramen noodles and a packet of crisps whilst talking on my mobile to a friend, bemoaning my brokeness and crappy diet.

The lady in front of me in the queue must of heard this because as she was paying for her food she moved the toblerone divider thing so that my stuff was on her side, paid for it all then gave me half her shopping saying welcome to America. Have a happy Christmas.

I was a long way from home and a bit fed up anyway, it was the nicest thing and I'm not ashamed to say it choked me up a little.

» Why I was late

tree poo
Whilst working as a liftie in Breckenridge Ski resort, one of the other Brits didn't show up for his afternoon shift. When he did finally get there and was asked why he was so late, he replied "I was snowboarding down to the lift when I fucked up and hit a tree so hard I pooed myself"

Worst thing was, he wasn't lieing.

Bad News
I was told this morning that Sharon was close to death.

Crushed when I found out it was Ariel as opposed to Osbourne.
