Rare, but at least warm in the middle, whatever that translates to. I ordered a well done steak in Paris once "” what can I say "” at some small, not very remarkable, place. It's possible they misunderstood, but I like to think they wanted to teach me something; I got the rarest piece of meat I ever ate, I think.
Not overly fond of flavoured teas, but Tesco's self-brand loose leaf Earl Grey was surprisingly passable; certainly if you drink it overly steeped and with milk as it should be. (And cheap enough to boot.)
Dark 'n' stormy on Appleton Extra and, regrettably, Schweppes' ginger ale. Making my own ginger beer is a project for a rainy day.

I had a beer which had a 12% alcohol and it tasted like shit. It's unfair to extrapolate this to all high-alcohol beers. Not one of the barley wines I've had tasted bad. Sam Adams Utopia, which is admittedly only 27% seems popular enough, although it is a fair bit...

The Hyperion Omnibus. It's quite captivating, although Simmons seems to recycle a lot of concepts in Ilium/Olympos which I read before.

I saw this film at the cinema, when I was little. Never since, though, although I've thought about it a few times.
