Devastating News.

I have a very sad announcement. Cue the bagpipes...

Gin and I can no longer be friends.

Last night I came home from work and fixed a lovely pizza from scratch (bufalo mozzarella, truffled goat cheese, pepperoni, fresh basil). Over the course of the 2 1/2 hours between preparing the meal, eating it, and then plunking down on the couch, I drank two gin and tonics. I don't even think I finished the second one. Either way, by the third hour I was pretty much plastered - but in a super chatty, hyper, Let Me Tell YOU sort of way (hence SFG's are you on coke? question). I was so wasted I went to sleep at about 10 pm, woke up at 12:30 still drunk. As if I'd consumed an entire bottle of wine. It was that bad.

I am either becoming a serious lightweight, have developed some sort of strange allergy to gin, have a hormonal or metabolic imbalance, or just can't take the Citadelle that we purchased on a whim.

Last week I had a g&t with the Citadelle and got a super raging headache. Maybe I just can't do French gin. I will have to switch back to Hendrick's and see what happens. But I am afraid. What if I have to break up with that one too? Life will simply no longer be the same.

Oh no! Perhaps you need to stick with the Bombay Sapphire. What country is that from? I don't think it's French. Bombay...India? WTF? I am a loser.

I have done that----always when It's close to my time of month. So, it could just be the wrong time of month for Gin! :)

Gin's never agreed with me. Period. It makes me a loud insane person. I've done really really stupid and dangerous things after drinking gin.

Lara: me thinks Bombay is British? They do know their gin - hence the Hendrick's...yerm.

Sherry: Speak o' the devil! See next post!

Maria: This is the first time for ginsanity (I think I just coined a phrase?!). Usually red wine makes me rambly.
