My god I was miserable yesterday. After a day of sitting in front of a computer the endless mind numbing string of emails had taken their tole. There has to be more to life?
I'll need to find new past times quickly, but again I found myself at the end of the day in a bar.
I had a Bionade, which I was reliably told is the hip cool drink of the moment.
Here's the low down. Bionade has a similar malty, tangy taste of beer but it is a health drink. Bionade is very low in sugar, but because gluconic acid shares a similar molecular structure to glucose, drinkers are fooled into tasting sweetness. And while soft drinks are often loaded with cheap, aggressive acids, Bionades is a product of natural micro-organisms at work. Bionade does have plenty of good stuff in it: calcium and magnesium, for instance. A litre of Bionade will supply half the daily requirements of these minerals. And so on and so forth...
It wasn't bad at all. Fruity with a bit of a kick. A nice alternative to my current threesome of Coke, Fanta and sparkling water.
So had an idea, why not get Bionade to sponsor this blog? Worth a shot. Here goes another email...
' Dear Mr. Bionade,
To introduce myself, I am a 25 year old award winning film maker, website creator and blogger from Ireland currently living in Germany.
I am very impressed with your product. I enjoyed my first bottle in a beach bar last night in Hamburg.
I've recently started a blog called A Year Off The Booze, where I tell the story of one non alcoholics quest to go a year without alcohol. This is easier said than done as you can imagine.
I'm at day 25, and up until now I've drank quite a lot of Coke, Fanta and other bad fizzy drinks.
I think Bionade would make a great replacement drink for those.
I wonder would Bionade consider sponsoring my blog? A Year Off The Booze in association with Bionade? Sounds good don't you think?
I hope to hear from you.
Sent. It will never work.
