I’m an occasional drinker

17 April 2013

A note to new visitors: On occasion, PG goes on a Raymond Chandler quote marathon because he likes Chandler quotes and lots of TPV regulars do as well.

I’m an occasional drinker, the kind of guy who goes out for a beer and wakes up in Singapore with a full beard.

    P.G.

    Heh, one day I’ll tell that Jackanory, but I’ll wait till all the other bodies are buried. The closest which appears to it in fiction is related by Freddie Forsyth in his first book.

    I wasn’t the only one, it wasn’t Singapore…and it was that 15 year old Scottish muck that people drink did for my judgement. I hated the stink and taste of it so much I had to cut it with something sweet and airy. No one told me it, “captivated,” one quicker using fizz.

  2. Here we go again. My Chandler-crush is flaring up from mere anticipation…

    Re-reading “Trouble Is My Business” right now — & am re-amazed at Chandler’s impeccable power of description/ability to move a story along. I have to pause a lot while reading his work to absorb the visuals he evokes.

  4. Ha, ha, ha! Terrific. :)

  5. This TPV regular wouldn’t mind at all if the Chandler quote marathons were more frequent.

  6. The last time you quoted him, I had just read it in my Chandler reader – and it is so again. Just read The King in Yellow Sunday!
