Perfect night in by yourself?

    What would be your perfect night in by yourself? You can't go out and you can't have mates over, you just have to stay indoors by yourself.

    For me it would begin with playing whatever music I want to play. Then I would pour a can of Guinness, load Once upon a time in America (or similar) into the DVD player and eat a nice greasy take-away.

    Next, the laptop gets booted up and the gaming commences only pausing to get another can from the fridge :)

    Heaven. :D

    A six-pack of Lidl Pils, my HTPC, projector and Yahoo Launchcast.

    I'd have to pick from one of the following food/drink options:
    (a) A bucket load of fried chicken & a few 6-packs of Corona
    (b) Crubeens & cans of Guinness.
    (c) Sirloin steak, raw onions & gravy (with white bread to mop up the gravy) & a couple of bottles of Carménère.

    Withnail & I or The Godfather

    Elvis Costello or The Ramones

    Bag of good smoke

    Dominator Pizza from Dominos

    2Pac or Full Intention

    Scarface and any of the Southpark Boxsets

    indian take away
    probably Bhuna or Balti with a corriander(sp?) naan and basmati rice
    litre of milk

    a few episodes of Rome or some hunting videos

    Rome is indeed very manly for there is lots of swearing, rutting, stabbing and political ruminating. It's up there with Deadwood on the scale of televisual manliness.

    Liverpool FC winning the champions league , beer, a chinese and toffee popcorn.

    None of ye have even taken yer pants off yet! Thats thing one. You are all alone in the house! Why subscribe to the pants wearing ideal for **** sake!
    U need:
    One giant bean bag. (U will look like an upturned seaturtle)
    One pair boxers with the buttons not done up (This is attractive to women)
    One tiny rugby ball to throw until it rolls out of reach. (This will make you feel better about being a horrible overweight bald bastard until the beer takes over.)
    Every single sports channel available in Europe.
    Every remote control within easy reach of your beanbag.
    Your mobile for calling food companies.
    The extra long extendible reaching mechanical arm for paying the delivery guy without having to move (This is available in pound shops guys. Its not some magical modern expensive invention or anything.) (Also great for passing smoking related devices around a room.)
    A nice six pack. Not the cheapest, but not the most expensive either. U know, Harp or Tuborg. Frankly if u are drinking bottles of corona you are either too rich for your own good or just dont care enough for your beer belly.
    One copy of Band of Brothers on DVD. Failing this, absolutely any war movie at all as long as its not Behind enemy lines.
    If you really wana turn pro, U need a 32" LCD tv which is also hooked up to your PC. that way, when its porn time, one flick of a remote will do the job for you, rather than having to focus on a smaller screen for your porn.
    Remember! Drunkenly watching hi-def porn loudly in your own living room with yer lad hanging out is a responsibility, not a right.

    The remote control for starters! A six pack of Sam Adams, a chip butty and good football match or sci-fi film!

    Have to go with old school Arnie for the films....commando and predator.

    Good grass, decent beer, my old vinyl collection (plenty of ac/dc, sabbath etc). A good game on the box, or a classically funny film e.g. Blazing saddles, life of brian. Some take away injun food.

    Just make sure you have plenty of rizla's

    Me, sofa, chinese takeaway (probably chicken chow mein, prawn crackers, hot & sour soup), box of Fink Brau (Lidl beer, 24 bottles for €11, surprisingly nice), smoke, skins, bong, 2 litre of coke, LOTS of Haribo(you know you all love it), DVD player, This Is Spinal Tap and Monty Python Box Set, clothes off, lights off, lie down while watching and eating, if anything spills I just eat it off my chest. Cover nearby in case I feel like sleeping without moving.

    And now I wish I had the house to myself :(

    My A-Team boxset is essential ingredient in any night in at my end.

    Has the unfortunate side effect of making me call everyone "fool" for the next week or so, but it's a price worth paying.
