After running a number of chores, I arrived back at Chez Sparkly One, and was immediately offered a cocktail.
The "Hunk Martini" is, it would seem, a classic of the locality, comprising vanilla-flavoured vodka, vermouth, and a dash of pineapple juice.
It is, you may care to know, extraordinarily drinkable. Perhaps even too drinkable.
I spent the remainder of the afternoon in Sparkly company; sipping cocktails, watching Sweeney Todd, and assembling my Lego Batmobile.
