When in Belgium, I used to grab at least 3 beers every evening :lol: Westmale tripple was my favorite. Till recently I restricted myself to a couple of cans of Grolsh every 2 to 3 days. My beer belly started being visible through a pullover :lol:
For the last week I am staying completely sober :wink:

Helg, you're supposed to smoke. You're Russian. They would kick you out of the Novye Russkue Club if you quit. And I KNOW you don't want that.

It's hard to be a non-smoking nation when the prices for cr@ppy cigarettes are as low as $0.20 and you can get something really good (like Parliament) at $1.50. What bothers me most is that there are literally no barriers between the cigs and the kids. In Moscow I think about 75% of teenagers are smokers.

What is Novye Russkie (New Russian) Club? Never heard of it! Never worn a crimson jacket either :)

LOL. I have a friend who wants to open a restaurant where everyone has a deep fryer at their table, and can order different cuts of steak which you deep fry yourself to your liking at your table.
