  7. New Years Resolutions

    So come on then. What's yours? I've made 2: 1. Don't drink during January (and no I'm not doing a ****ing dryathalon, thanks for asking. A charity can't just come along and take over an idea that people regularly do. Movember is a good idea, but this 'dryathalon' isn't) 2. Get out of bed...
