the morning after


the bottle parents come out to see their cup children drunk on the lawn.  they are ashamed



drink prices


we went to a fantastic dedication service and party yesterday and it was excellent.  everyone was much too trendy though, and jane and realised that we are definitely old.   which is a shame, but inevitable.
