We have our ways of extracting information from you Hien.

It's been a while since I used that rubber hose - to be honest, my fingers are getting itchy....where is it.....?

What rubber hose? Nothing scares me.

I'll send a life-sized Beerman cut out that you can just prop up near a barstool. ;)

Ev, I have the Holy Hose. I had to take it away from Hien because he keeps stealing my crowbar. Besides, he hasn't mastered the Holy Hose technique so it's talents were just being wasted in KL.

Yeah right!
We'll just see how much bravado you have left after they have put you in that Leprechaun outfit and mock you.

Whatever you want - l do at this point feel it is fair to point out that the Lap/Pole Dancing club in Belfast had to shut due to protests from Rev Ian Paisley and his friends at the Free Presbyterian Church - they harassed punters going in so much, people were scared to go through the door! BUT maybe Nikki would be willing to give the pole a go if we feed her enough Baileys!

As for entertainment - l will ensure that you frequent as many pubs/bars/clubs/discos/licenced venues as you want - to ensure your liver is suitably alcohol sodden to make up for your abstainance!

I have a couple of ideas depending on numbers and depending on how nice l am to our fleet manager at work - l might be able to get a people carrier and l thought if soooo we could go to the Giants Causeway - it will be wet and wild but sure that will be more atmospheric!

If not there are a couple of tours that take you round the murals of Belfast and show you places that were on the news - although to be honest - l could do this myself (l get to work in all the "classy" areas of the city!) and save us a few bob or too - again though would need that people carrier!

There are however 2 downsides to these ideas:

A If l have to drive that means l have to curtail drinking!!

B For everyone else - you get to experience my driving Mwahhhhhhhhhh

Theres always the CROWN BAR which is a National Trust owned pub and really nice, dates back to Victorian times and has just been refurbished!

Also - Fibber Magees - traditional diddly dee - not particularly a favourite of mine but it is good for a group of folk!

My livingroom also will be needing painting therefore if everyone would like to give a hand doing that - that could be construed as "entertainment" too;)

Im also very good at shopping which in itself is a form of entertainment and the post Christmas sales will be on too l should think!!!!!!!!!

Anyway - l will have a think and see what else l can come up with!

Will Carrick-a-Rede still be open in December? I missed it last time round. We're up for anything - I'll see if Neal has any ideas, although it will more than likely involve copious amounts of food and drink.
