Get ready

With your string and eggs.

Drinkalongathon 2019 is just around the corner.

Prpeparation time.

Eggs, string, mustard. All obvious. Don't neglect the more obscure items. Lentils. Tins of anchovies. Spanners.

Hold your string taught and your eggs firmly betwen your buttocks.

Otherwise it just won't be Christmas.

Well, not my sort of crazy Christimas.

String, Start preparing your string. You'll needs lots of it. Three standard lengths and a couple of "specials", if you know what I mean. Don't worry if you don't. You just won't be taking part fully.

A 2-slice loaf of bread
1 lump of coal
1 piece of toast - very lightly toasted
2 pieces of my nan's style toast (black)
Three stickelbacks
1 cone of winkles (with vinegar)
Burma railway (Model)
Three eggs (raw)
Two eggs (soft bolied)
Four eggs, fried.
Half pint of any Mild Ale
Pint of any other Mild Ale
Pliny the Elder, or any other impossible to obtain beer
A skip, half-filled with bathroom rubble
1 Peeled apple
2 foraged quinces

Just the start.

I managed to score two bottles of Thomas Hardy at $9.99 each. I was going to grumble about the price but it's basically like getting a bottle of wine for $20, and this is Hardy, not some California plonk.

Not sure about the quinces though. Might have to scavenge some crabapples,
