I ran home from work and then after a bit of trouble I managed to find the discreet door to Opium for Teresa's birthday drinks. Except Teresa had been replaced by an alien that didn't drink alcohol but drank tea instead. She had been out till 5 am the previous night. I had a Yam sling shot to start with this came in a specimen jar but was reasonably tasty. Next I had a tall drink a long March, then a cocktail that bubbled with dry ice. Then I bought a pot of alcoholic tea that came in a teapot, but I couldn't get Teresa to drink it. We moved on then to Y Ming the Chinese restaurant and we're joined by Sandra and Geraldine. I had some really spicy dish that had loads of chillies. After this we went home. A very unusual birthday for Teresa.
