Living in Blackpool it is not by any means uncommon for one to come across a few drunken individuals, especially on a Friday or Saturday night. Therefore I have decided to make a post apropos of the atypical and rather amusing behaviour that I have seen from the local ‘drunkards’.

I shall begin with the the most recent of my encounters with a drunk. This occurred a few nights ago, whilst walking from a bar to my home I witnessed a gentleman (who had clearly enjoyed one too may) attempt to stop a road full of fast traveling cars, insisting that he was going to perform opera and required an audience. Needless to say no cars stopped, and when he got too dangerous the police involved themselves. This ‘provoked’ him into beginning his concert, giving me the pleasure of hearing ‘Volare ohhhhh bam bare oh oh bam baaaam’ in a high pitched squeal.

Secondly I will mention a simple story, one that I shouldn’t find amusing as the person involved came very close to serious personal injury. Whilst sitting on my parent’s balcony enjoying my own alcoholic beverage my attention was drawn to a distraught neighbour who appeared to be climbing out of her upstairs window screaming for help .I immediately panicked, assuming she must be in danger. I panicked even more when i saw her fall from the window and crash through her greenhouse. (I feel this needs an exclamation mark)

Horrific, right? Well no. Because it was later revealed that she was attempting to escape a renegade dustbin which, after a select amount of alcohol, had turned nasty and attempted to kill her. The lady was fine, and not surprisingly she has now left the area.

My final story refers to myself, as I am partial to a bottle of spirit or three myself. After spending a night on the town with friends I realized it was time to open shop and start serving. This is at 7AM, when I am still completely worse for ware and my staff are all starring at me expectantly. Due to my level of intoxication was was more than a little merry and chose to stand at the door greeting customers myself. It was going well:

This lasted a whole thirty minutes before I got insulted by a drag artist (keep in mind that on all other occasions I love a good man in drag, they are funny). On this one however my drunken mind took great offense to the insult I received.

My reaction?
“HE’S A F***ING MAN!” I screamed, whilst ripping his wig from his head and flinging it out into the street, we shared an argument of shouts before my family were called to remove me from the premises. This was the most embarrassing moment in my life.

So there you go people. Three stories of drunkards. Hope you enjoyed.


I’ve decided to share with the world my own version of the recipe for a Blue Lagoon cocktail. It’s delicious, amazing sitting on a deck chair in the sun. Make it if you can 😀

You will need:

  • 1 shot Vodka
  • 1/2 shot Blue Curaçao
  • Lemon/Lime soda (eg; 7UP/Sprite)

Here’s the method:

  1. Add the Vodka and Blue Curaçao in a tall glass with ice.
  2. Fill almost to the top with the lemonade.
  3. Add a slice of Orange or Lime

It’s a sexy drink, right? :-p

Now for my little twist, if you want an even more refreshing drink then replace the lemonade for pineapple juice. It will taste amazing, and if you are really awesome then you can slowly pour in a shot of red cherry vodka and make it settle at the top. The sugars in the pineapple juice will make the blue alcohol stay at the bottom, the yellowy pineapple juice will be in the middle and the red cherry vodka will float at the top.

So have a go at it, see just how awesome it is 🙂

Love Jamie xx
