Beer Snacks

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

I'm a diabetic. Bread is to be avoided.

Ah, OK. But isn't beer "liquid bread", as they say in Alsatia? :mrgreen:

'Tis, but while beer contains plenty of carbs, your liver packs up doing other things while it's getting rid of the alcohol. It can actually lower your blood sugar levels.

Dangerously if your on medication or insulin.

Happens to me. But I like to live dangerously. ;)

Evening completed with a pipe-full of rum-soaked shag. :)

AC's beer snack looks a bit like lunch on my weight loss regimen, except that I wouldn't eat the hard boiled egg (just personal preference not the regimen).

American style beer snacks aren't so healthful.

My comprehension of English English is slipping. I thought a rum soaked shag was something else. :BigGrin3:

35 years ago, a rum-soaked shag would have meant something different. Nowadays, I'm content with a Tolkienesque style of satisfaction. :)

Oh, Abdul, I guarantee you'd enjoy my home-made pickled eggs; they're a famous local delicacy. I often add a slice of beetroot to my sooper-seekrit spice mix so they turn a lovely shade of purple. :)

Love the pipe! Makes up for the fag-o-cycle. You could almost be mistaken for manly.

I've been fixing up my lady neighbour's bike for her and test-riding it around town. Much to the local residents' amusement. Almost done now; pic to follow. :)

Look at this beauty! And she was going to throw it away and buy a new one! AC to the rescue. :)

Looks like a bit of tweaking to the rear carrier rack frame would improve things. It looks like it's been bent down at some point and is pushing the mudguard out of shape and rather too close to the rear tyre.

Yep. Figured that out this morning after truing the back wheel and replacing the brake blocks. :)

I'm genuinely impressed that ceptimus spotted that. My neighbour said she'd always had problems with the rear brakes rubbing and nobody could sort it out. I sorted it out by removing the rack which was too small for the bike. Noway, nohow should it ever have been fitted in the first place. It wasn't damaged, it was just too fucking small!

Didn't realize the egg was pickled. :o

You don't see pickled eggs so often nowadays but back in the day pretty much every pub sold them as snacks. They're delicious!

The older I get, the less I throw things away. Hate to see young people throwing good things away, just because they"re a little old. Shame. Usually all it takes is a little sprucing up, a buff, a trim, a wash, a shave, and maybe just a few well-placed compliments, and there, good as new.
