JDs guide to smokers
I once got called shallow. Okay not just once, quite frequently in fact, however one particular occasion prompted a moment of pause. "Refusing to a date woman because they smoke is just shallow!" I was loudly informed.
"You should judge a person by their personality, not something trivial, like smoking. That's a personal choice!"
I pondered for a moment, before politely responding to her: "It's not just the smoking that bothers me. You're also ugly".
I'm definitely not shallow.
JDs guide to returning home unscathed
Later today I will be heading out celebrate a good friends birthday, which are always great opportunities to catchup with old friends over a few drinks and recount all the crazy shenanigans we got up to as kids. But for some strange reason, lurking at the back of my mind there is an odd sense of trepidation. I am slightly afraid.
We all know 'that person'. You know the one; That guy or girl that always seems to be around when something totally crazy happens. And it usually, but not always, involves alcohol.
This is a person that can only think big. No half measures. If they plan a night out, they will plan the biggest night night out. If they plan a holiday, it is an epic adventure. And if fate deems it time for them to have an injury, by god, they will be certain to have an awesome injury.
I wont say this often, sometimes, just sometimes, a night can be a little too awesome.

These are douches
Last time I highlighted how to successfully get in, and served at a club, but let's now discuss what not to do.
Easy. Don’t act like a douche.
Sounds simple enough, but many people fall into this trap, especially when inebriated, so lets go over some of the basics.
There are many types of douche. Most are obvious, but some people mistakenly think they are awesome and as a side effect, become douches.
Because sometimes awesomeness just needs to be shared!
I've added a new section to the website called 'JD recommends' to showcase anything from a product or a service that I use myself and think is awesome. Because they may also include affiliate links, i've decided to keep them off the main blog to avoid being too intrusive.
That said, I will only ever recommend things I genuinely use and really think are worth promoting.

To celebrate St Patricks day, arguably the most awesome of all the Saint days, I thought I would share a few phraises that can be used while you wet the shamrock later this evening. I've perposfully excluded the obvious " Have you got any Irish in you. Would you like some?". That ones just for me. Sláinte
More after the break....
After a recent birthday I was presented with a truly awesome gift. Surely these have to be some of the best business cards ever?!
Patrick bateman would be proud. Thanks Kate & Jess!
JDs guide to night out - part one
First things first; be it a party or a night out on the town with friends, being fashionably late is not fashionable. It’s just late. And pretentious. Think about it. If somebody arrives late to a night out, what does it tell us about them? Are they a leader, or a follower?
Instead the best time to head to a night club is before all the crowds arrive.
The benefits of an early arrival are numerous. Bouncers and the dress codes are usually more relaxed, entry is cheaper (or free), you can stake a claim to the best area and possibly most important; while it’s less busy, you can strike up a conversation with the bar staff or others patrons.
You might already be out with a group of awesome friends, so why bother bantering with strangers? Well, for a start, who is a barman most likely to serve first; the drunk guy waving bank notes in the air, or the person waiting patiently, that earlier in the evening took the time to ask how their days was? Add tipping and/or cleavage into the equation and you won’t wait more than a few minutes to be served all night!
