Sozzled (sp.) - see Ken's linguistic dictionary. by Ken Dunn on 17 November 2016 10:19pm
 
After a day of about 7 phone calls to my ISP and phone provider I got the problem sorted at about 8pm tonight. 2 of the 7 calls were useful and the rest were pointless. Fortunately the contact number for servicing was 0800 so I dread to think what it would have cost if I had to pay for the calls.

Since resolving that issue I found Great Canal Journeys on More 4 and really enjoyed Prue Scales and Tim West on their Great Canal Journey which included a sea pass of the Corrievreckan Whirlpool. Great stuff and the canal part was in the Crinan on a 70 year old puffer. I'm not quite 70 but I do puff a bit at times.

That takes me on to the title of this topic. Part way through the programme Prue and Tim visited the Jura distillery and they got sozzled tasting the nectar(?). So i decided to join them and am in the process of finishing a bottle of Black Bottle Scotch Whisky which I'm glad to see the back of as it's been on my whisky cabinet shelf for about 2 years. I'm part way through the second glass (with water as I can't drink it neat these days) and thought I'd come on here to describe the experience.

Since the canal programme finished I found one about Burma on another channel - I can't see its logo on the screen from here but I think it is BBC4. It might be a very interesting programme but I'm not watching it with any degree of concentration as my concentration is fully engrossed in finishing this post.

Sozzled. Perhaps JTM a former? regular participant has a comment.

Not bad, I finished that in 16 minutes and the only mistake I found on rereading is a capital i required somewhere in the text.

P.S. I'm also celebrating a tax refund which I put in my savings account today - in the past the tax people have given me money and 2 years later asked for it back - so the savings account is the safest place for it just now.

I've just noticed that Buchanan, a great wildlife cameraman is involved in the Burma programme. Wnen he is there it is a dangerous area.

I'm also celebrating a large cash lump sum (£) being deposited in my bank account in the next day or so.

I'm too sozzled to know if all of the above are good reasons to be sozzled.

I tuned into this programme about 15 minutes ago. It is so horrible what they are selling in the market - hundreds of animal parts. So cruel and disgusting!!

I managed to concentrate, with difficulty, on the last 20 mins. of the Burma (Myanmar?) programme on BBC4 and was pleased to see the golden cat and the ? leopard, two rare species of the Burmese jungle.

We're now on to Alice Roberts doing a stone age programme about North America. i thinkI'll watch some of that too as she is talking about puting ice screws in and climbing.

I'm having a cup of tea flavoured with milk and honey to improve my sozzledness before going to bed. Alice has my attention with her programme content while I finish my tea.

Dr. Alice has finished. There is another programme that sounds as if it might be interesting but I'll not bother with it as it reminds me of a programme I saw advertised the other night which was publicised with the statement - is your brain male or female? I already know the answer to that If you have a willy it's male and if you dont, it's female.

So, off to bed with another section of the Ranulph Feinnes book before sleep. I don't think I'll manage too much reading in my inebriated(sozzled) state.

I have a headache. The moral in this set of posts is don't get sozzled. If the headache goes away fairly quickly then it may be ok to get sozzled.

suzulu, I've just seen your post in the middle of my sozzled ramblings. It's a good job I was sozzled when watching the bit you refer to.
