The Claytons Blog Post

Do you remember those ads from the 1970s about Clayton's, the drink you have when you're not having a drink? Non-alcoholic, and coloured to look like whiskey. Whiskey-coloured cordial in other words.

This is the blog post version of that drink. It's the post you write when you're meant to be writing something else. Something that really needs to be written. Something that's due tomorrow.

It's a poor substitute for the real thing, but if I don't tell you my secret and I pretend to savour my post well, maybe I'll get away with it. Right up until the point where you try to steal my post, realise that it's fake and wonder why I've been pretending to be drunk on words for the past two hours. Awkward.

Anyhoo, here's cheers!

  1. This post was almost as weird as that silly accent we used to put on when we said "the drink you're having when you're not having a drink." So, of course I love it.

    Go. And. Write. Your. Article. Allison. Tait.

    And if you're wondering what voice I'm using there, just channel Dad circa October '86.

  2. hmmmm. You're not procrastinating or anything are you (much!). Exactly how long did it take you to find that nice little pic to pop alongside the post your not really having??
    I agree with Maxabella:
    go and do your homework miss!!

  3. When I was bartending in Melbourne I had to learn how to make Lemon/Lime/Bitters. I was amazed that I would have to make PITCHERS of the stuff... then I finally tried it - I had a slight addiction for a while.

  4. Oh I'm right there with you - deadlines today, tomorrow and 2 on Monday and none of them finished (2 aren't even started!!) I have no motivation though and would much rather read my favourite blogs.
    Sadly though, it won't pay the bills so I'm off to work - you should too!

  5. Yes..go and do your work..like a good girl! I am now procrastinating going to bed by staying on the computer just a little longer to read and comment on your Clayton's post!! Maybe I can just fake going to bed and pretend to be rested in the morning and just stay up and have fun on my computer all night. This is getting weirder by the minute..I'd better get off to bed..really.

  9. Bahahaha! I have been talking about Clayton's this and that for years and I only ever get blank stares of single raised eyebrows in return. So good to find a Clayton's sista!
    And I've been writing Clayton's posts for the last couple of weeks. Time for the real deal again, I think, before I start losing readers!
