The after party of the reception of Martin Firrell's Complete Hero was a wonderful night. I have never in my fairly illustrious life of drinking been so drunk while retaining the ability to walk around, converse, and not be told that it's time to go home. Despite Martin's assurance that I was "delightful in my drunkenness", I can't shake the feeling that I might have made an ass of myself.

I seem to have been able to keep a steady hand too, since, although I have no memory of taking this and many other shots (normally my memory is completely intact no matter how much I drink: must be getting old...) I'm very pleased with a lot of them!

London, 2009.
