I had been warned about Sophie & Severine. Maurice, the guy who helped me find a job here, told me to look out for two French girls, who loved Ireland and who liked nothing better than to hang out in an Irish bar and try to meet some real Irish. Interesting I thought....
On my second night in Angouleme, I was sitting at the bar when two girls sat down beside me and asked me who I was & where I was from (apperently I didn't have the look of a regular). 'You must be Sophie & Severine' I said. Still feeling the effects of the previous night's drinking all I wanted was a quiet night by the bar. But the girls were having none of it. That night, they brought me to their favourite night-club in Angouleme - I think it's called 'Le Living Room' and it went on until 6am.
From then on, every Saturday, the girls would try to persuade me to go there with them. I'm not a huge nightclub fan, particularly after working from 5pm until 3 am, but what guy can refuse the pleading of two French girls.

I guess this warning could apply to anywhere but I'll always associate mixing beer, tequila, wine, and more with my time in Angouleme. I had the worst hangover I care to remember (and there have been quite a few) on Bastille Day '98. I was given the evening off work so arranged to meet up with two friends, Richard & Nina.
Richard had the bulk and drink tolerance of a Rugby prop so my first mistake was trying to match him. The second mistake was mixing all the aforementioned drinks (especially the Tequila - a six shot Rapido!). I was supposed to work the following day too!
