chin chin, M!

p.s. did you know that at my school, prefects attended 'know the form' classes at which we were taught the intricacies of mixing a dry martini? goes without saying that it was a favourite class for many of us...and this was only the late 1980s...

THE INTRICACIES OF MIXING A DRY MARTINI? A comparable class for us backintheday would have been THE INTRICACIES OF ROLLING A JOINT. Shocking! We Americans are such Puritans. Unless you look around you. xoxo

Heh. Never did master the intricacies of rolling a joint, although I could make a pipe out of an apple, coke can or just about anything else lying around.

Wow, the Intricacies of mixing a dry martini. I thought it was crazy that in my 1st grade class in all girls private school, I had to sew a sampler.

I have led a very sheltered life: I don't know how to do any of those things.
