Hahahahahaha, oh man.

I was trying to come up with something, but nothing would top that.

Either way, the night will end in shame and embarrassment for all parties involved.

Anyone want to start a pool to see how long it takes people who don't like gin to make a vodka negroni all the rage?

/still won't order a vodka "martini"

Negroni please!

The drink had a detrimental effect on the author's writing style....that is for certain. But I must admit I am tempted to try the drink.

is it just me, or did everyone get about a paragraph in and lose interest in what this hipster was trying to say because he just drags it all out to hit his minimum word count?

I like good gin. Vodka is for children. Bad gin is for stripping furniture.

"A long fortnight ago-10 business days and 40 nights ago"
I've read this five times and still can't figure out how many days the author is referring to.

Let's see, 10 business days would be somewhere between 12-14 calendar days. That leaves 26-28 days unaccounted for. I think this means that the guy took a 4-week vacation to get his ass drunk.

//I'm assuming that the author invented the "long fortnight" as a new unit of time, like a "long ton"

Your comment prompted me to send this link to my friend who was a lit major (but switched to graphic design because it was too mind-numbing). Her reply just a moment ago:

"Jesus, it's like an Apple store got hammered and threw up in my brain. You owe me lunch for making me read that much hipster drivel all at once."

Got as far as the second page where his wife makes fun of him for wearing the "wrong" jeans to Williamsburg, lost interest.

A good Negroni requires fresh vermouth. Don't use the bottle that's been sitting open at the back of the bar since 1974.

Aperol is a good substitute if you find the Campari's bitterness to be too aggressive.

Or long pig.

I think you need Punt e mes vermouth to make a real Negroni.

Oops! That guy accidentally got vermouth and campari in his gin and tonic! And forgot the tonic and lime! Oh well, better luck next time.
