I had a brief business trip to Perth. You have to stay overnight, because there’s three or four hours travel each way. So I posted on the BIKE ME! forum that I would fain blow the froth off a cold one or two with the locals, and flew in to town Sunday.

Those Sandgropers are thirsty men.

That Fat Yak is a fine beer. It is a pleasant shade of brown, and as cold and bitter as an ex wife, and has bubbles.

That Cabernet Merlot that Scott the Pariah inflicted on us at dinner is a fine wine. I think it is from Western Australia. It is like angels crying on your tongue, except not as salty.

The steaks at Sullivans are good.

That Sambuca is a fine liqueur. It has a pleasant aniseed flavour and a lingering afterburn, and drinkers of it convince themselves that they are pretty hot stuff and sit around in bars for hours trying to chat up a nineteen year old cocktail waitress.

She had us sussed from the start, and would have none of it. We gave her tips on how to pass her law exams and succeed as a barrister specializing in torts and civil liability. She looked sceptical.

I’m glad there were no photos taken.

I felt a little ordinary next morning. Jetlag, I guess.
