That ranks right up there with make-up sex :)

And The Criterion in Aberdeen, it used to have early morning openings, & all the night shift workers would go in there on their way home.

And people like me, who would no joke, catch a bus and ride in for an hour and a half to be there for seven in the morning and all jittery and jumpy-like, would cram right in with all the overnight workers, order up a pint of lager and a jack daniels, and settle right down ... breakfast ...

I used to know all the opening times etc of all the different bars in Aberdeen, so I could kick off in the Criterion first thing, then just work my way around Aberdeen, right through till late at night ...

all day session, the only way to go. :)

I also had some great times in The Moorings, another bar in Aberdeen. I saw an AC/DC tribute band there once, and was sitting in a booth with my back to the stage. Really loud, but that was fine, I was into my alcoholic beverages and the music just blasted away there. Then the singer, wearing a schoolboy uniform, including a pair of shorts, decided to come off the stage and he stood up on the back of the booth I was in, right beside me ... I turned round and it was at that moment I discovered he wasn't wearing any underpants beneath his shorts ... I was so traumatised I had to order another round ... ah those were the days eh ...

course when I started blacking out for three or four days at a time and waking up in strange places, that wasn't so much fun ...

mind you they say that people can get used to anything, and I suppose I did ...

Twelve years sober this month though, pretty good going, if I'd kept all that stuff up, I would definitely not be here today. :)

I had a pretty good run at it though, just one of life's adventures, packed a lot of experiences in that "normal" people would never have. :)
