    DISCLAIMER: I am not actually a drunkard like this post would suggest. (Seriously, the most I ever drink is a (very large) glass of Baileys at Christmas. Every night for a month. It's like a grown-up advent calendar.) The "wine" stains were in fact blood stains from all the hair-pulling.

    DISCLAIMER THE SECOND: I don't really have one, I just felt like saying "disclaimer the second".

    DISCLAIMER THE THIRD: Oh, look, I did have a second disclaimer after all: I may or may not add to this list of tips in the near or distant future if my brain should decide to spill its guts some more. Who knows.
