Want a country?

Got a small army? Actually a couple of mates with some sharp knives will do.

I can suggest Wales, it'd be just ripe for invading at about 9:40pm on Saturday night. The residents won't put up much of a fight, a large percentage of the population, you see, will be completely plastered.

It's the third round of the Six Nations. Some clever bastard has put the game involving Wales on at 8pm.

Scotland take on Italy at 3pm. The pub opens at 12pm, say that's two pints an hour (a reasonable pace) until the game starts. 6 pints. One half of rugby is 40mins, you'll finish another two. Half-time, grab another one. Then there's the second half to get through. 11 pints.

Ireland play England at half five. Five pints during the game. 16 pints.

France v Wales is then finally aired at 8pm. Very few people are going to remember it, but Wales are playing - the adrenalin is pumping and you're not even watching the pace of your drinking anymore, it's probably fast. Six more drinks, that's brought our total to 22 pints.

We're going to a party in West Wales, after watching the rugby. We might die, and there'll be no-one left to conquer.

If I don't ever update this again, there's your reason.

I have faith that you can pull through. I'm sure you've had lots of practice!

22 pints is lots, but as Monica points out, you are hardly the least qualified one to take on this sort of challenge, are you? I also have faith in your skills.

Don't bother trying the north, though, as there won't be that many people who are arsed about the rugby up here ... mind you, they'll still probably be plastered by 9ish!

It's a Saturday night...won't everyone be hammered?

Monica & Léonie - Thanks for your faith in me, I'm glad to hear you're so willing for me to participate in this event regardless of my health! You're great.

Kels - THAT'S what I need, luck - thank you so much!

Gary - I know at least a few of you will be participating. But yeah, you'll all be plastered by 9pm anyway, so that's no different!!

Afe - Thanks dude. I needed another nick name after the other four or five.

Mona - Oh cool, you'll have to find out where she is (Cardiff right?) - I might bump into her at some point! We're not into boo-ing over here, last time we played the French we sang along to La Marseillaise with them!

Wierdo - Yes, you're completely right. But I think we'll be more hammered than usual, at least I will be...

West Wales? I don't even know where that is. I thought there was just us lot and you lot, North and South.

Annie - We're a different breed again. West Wales is generally considered anything west of the Loughor Bridge (note the sudden lack of photo coverage to the west), or the counties of Carmarthenshire & Pembrokeshire, sometimes Swansea is lumped in too but they don't really like it (due to rugby rivalries).

One of our very own heroes, Ray Gravell (pic here) can often be heard using his catch phrase "West is best, bois bach".

Excellent picture, there! Good luck pacing yourself - looks like you've set quite a schedule.
