ON IT LIKE GIN & TONIC
HANDS UP: WHO NEEDS SOME POST WEEKLY-GRIND LIBATION?
MR FOGG'S GIN PARLOUR: THE GRAND REVEAL 

The following confession will hardly elicit empathy from my fellow (wo)man, but the fact is irregardless of whether you consider being your own boss/freelance/working from home a great privilege the fact is that I don't need the end of a work week as a reason to be a gin-soaked strumpet. Reasons being, ONE: Unconstrained by conventional notions of typical working hours (read: I like to wake up at noon, faff about all day, then start pushing pixels after dinner till the crack of dawn) I find myself uttering, "What is a weekend?" TWO: Reconciling extreme vainglory with an aversion to preening means that my middle-ground is to never leave my house if I can help it, instead turning my sitting room into a speakeasy after hours (in the dark, nobody can see that you're not wearing makeup). 

Of course, we don't all have the luxury of being half-naked recluses with questionable time-management abilities (although my Pokemon Go strategy of Get on the bus + use Lucky Egg and incense + have multiple incubators running AND a bunch of Pokemon ready to be leveled up = the most efficient use of 30 minutes is nothing short of genius). So today, when you throw down your pens at the precise moment the little hand strikes five, bid Bye Felicia! and get thee down to the new Mr Fogg's Gin Parlour in Covent Garden. Just spare a thought for your good friend Jasiminne - while you're all sampling delicious and intoxicating libations made from one of the world's largest gin collections, I'll have only just started my own daily grind. Woe betide me.
