Now that Thanksgiving is over in the US, it’s officially the Christmas season (gag me, srsly), which means we will be inundated with Christmas songs and movies and all kinds of other nonsense from now until the end of the year. Barf.
But then on fb the other day, MT suggested a Love Actually drinkalong to kick this holiday season off right and I thought “Hell yes, that is a BRILLIANT IDEA!”
I’m a relative newb to this movie (I’ve only seen it once and that was only a month ago), so I had no idea what to do for rules. Until Jane suggested:
Stake your claim for Favorite Couple, declare allegiance before the movie starts, and drink whenever they appear on screen together.
Um, I love this.
So. You guys. You’re all way better versed in this movie than I am. What should our rules be?
Drinkalong is EARLY tonight. It starts at 9:45 eastern. So set your alarms and whatnot, okay?
You guys? YOU GUYS!
I have been looking forward to this drinkalong since I first suggested it two weeks ago.
I mean, I always KIND OF look forward to drinkalongs, but sometimes (when it’s a movie I hate [LOOKING AT YOU, RETURN OF THE KING!]) I have a difficult time mustering the enthusiasm and just want to weep into my alcoholic beverage, but I don’t cos then it would taste gross.
Anyway. THE PRINCESS BRIDE, YOU GUYS!
This is one of my Top Five books of ALL TIME and ONE OF MY TOP FIVE ADAPTATIONS I DON’T HATE!
In fact, I fucking love this movie. LOOOOOVE.
And now I get to watch it with my favourite people who live in my computer, so it should be good times, yeah?
Doing something a little different this time. I was feeling pretty lazy and couldn’t even think of decent rules – I was super close to assigning each drinker a character, and just having you drink whenever that person did something awesome – but then I found this.
And all the work was already done, so…
That’s what we’re using.
Idk, just drink whenever you feel like drinking? I AM NOT THE BOSS OF YOU!
See you there!
HUZZAH, HOORAY, IT’S DRINKALONG DAY!
Or something, I don’t even know.
But it is DARK CRYSTAL DRINKALONG DAY, which I’m finding incredibly exciting for some reason.
I got this movie on BluRay as a gift a few years ago and tried to get my kids excited about it, but they had zero interest. It made me really sad. Until the next day when they fell in love with Princess Bride (OOOH, PRINCESS BRIDE DRINKALONG, GUYS?) and I got over it.
I don’t think this movie has held up QUITE as well as I’d hoped it would, but it’s still a deliciously dark good time. Add booze and it should be a pretty fabulous drinkalong, yeah?

DO NOT FOLLOW EVERY ONE OF THESE SUGGESTED RULES!
You will die and I will feel bad.
Just pick a few and let me know which ones. I haven’t decided which I’ll use yet.
See you tonight!
After what feels like a lengthy hiatus, it’s good to be getting back to drinking along to movies with you guys.
I’m already ready for a nap, so I’m not going to drag this post out, let’s just get down to it, yeah?
- Countdown Timer
- #DrunkAskew (which we probably should have been using for the last four movies, I’m sometimes slow)

So, if this is your first drinkalong (WELCOME!), just click play at 10:15pm when the countdown timer up there hits zero. Then tweet using the tag and…drink whenever you want.
Personally, I’ll be drinking every time I want to punch Eliza Dushku in the face, so I don’t need any extra rules. DRINK WHEN YOU WANT OR NOT AT ALL! Just watch with us, okay?
See you tonight!
(Oh, and there’s really only one Askewniverse movie left after this one, so we need to come to an agreement on whether we want to watch Jersey Girl and Zack and Miri Make a Porno following Clerks II. I’ll leave that up to all of you to decide.)
Sorry, guys – the last few days have been SUPER HECTIC around here, and I JUST NOW realized I hadn’t written a post for this.
THAT IS ABOUT TO BE RECTIFIED!
As usual, feel free to pick and choose which rules you’d like to follow. See you all there tonight!
