12 bottles of wine.

Take one down, pass it around... etc.

Ok. Have made my first venture into the world of ordering wine on-line in a venture to save money.

However I fear it might backfire.

Out of these 12 bottles how many do you think will be left on Monday?

1 - you'll keep one to kid yourself you have exercised restraint.

Funkodrom

Hmmm... plausible.

To whoever voted 10 - IDIOT!

I'm going with nine.

You'll offer the wine around but also try to keep some back. Seven seems like a good number.

On Monday morning, or by the end of Monday?

All of them!
You didn't specify about their content, just the bottles themselves.
Do you get return?
In any case, just keep the bottles, either empty or intact it's irrelevant, till tuesday, et voilą!

There is a dustbin, so rubbish will be taken out and empty bottles will be removed and therefore no longer be left.

Sorry but "trying to stay sober" isn't part of the plan. I will try and remember which ones were good.

I bet you could walk less than 100 yards to a recycling bin.

I don't know where there's a bottle bank other than palmer park and that's miles.

The council don't recycle from our flats. Wankers.

Funkodrom
11-02-2005, 12:15:22
And, thinking about it. The council recycling doesn't take glass anyway.

You'd have to buy a car to get to the recycling places. :lol:

It is ridiculous isn't it.

Although that list says there is one at Homebase which is probably less than 100 yards. :o

So at least I know now. I can start taking them. :beer:

They don't take glass?? Even here in this shithole they take glass :lol:

Funkodrom

They don't collect glass in the recycling boxes they give you at home. Just plastic, paper, card and cans.

protein
11-02-2005, 12:22:14
You have to walk to the glass collection places, they pick up all the other stuff from your house. I think it's because of the amount of wine people drink in Reading.

Provost Harrison
11-02-2005, 12:23:14
Fortunately living in one of the best boroughs in the country (and the best in London) for recycling I can pretty much recycle anything from clothes and vegetable peelings to glass and paper.

Dont even have to sort it first

Yeah, we're legally required to seporate glass, plastic, and unwaxed paper products.

We get a rather crappy tall and extremely thin (i.e totally non wind resistant) blue bin to put paper in for recylcing collection, but nothing else is collected here. Gotta find a Homebase I suppose.

Too much going out drinking. If we'd stayed in on Friday or Saturday there'd be much less left.

I have to tackle them on my own next week so limited damage will be done.

No spectacular or even very good ones to report really.

Buttershots and Baileys, while an excellent combination, probably isn't going to help with that.
