Cassandra's 3-Way...

By Cassandra Dean


Thankful – I am super thankful for the publication of Enslaved! Not long now (in fact one more day!), and I will have my very first book in print. Like, oh my god wow! I’m also thankful for how goshdarn easy Enslaved was to write in the first place – especially now that I’m trying to write its follow up o_0
 

Thoughtful – Thinking, thinking, thinking about the next great masterpieces from Cassandra Dean…No, Cassandra, don’t get distracted by Michael Fassbender. NO! Bad Cassandra!!
…but he's so pretty


Thirsty – Hmm. I could really do with a knock-off beer.

Hi Barbara,
A "knock-off" beer is what you drink in Australia after you "knock-off" (finish) work. It's a sort of a "I've survived the day" beer because we Aussie's love our beer! Usually, on Friday's - it's "knock-off drinks" meaning you leave work about half an hour early and head to the pub with your work mates for a drink.

Barbara, I think you've just exposed my Australianessness! ;p

Oh, and it looks like Anne has answered already but here is my spin on it as well!

A knock-off beer is the beverage you consume - let us say, just to be wacky, a 'beer' :D - once you have 'knocked off' work, ie finished at the place you keep going to every weekday and they give you money in exchange for sitting at a desk and shuffling papers around...or is that just my day job? ;)

My friends and I use this saying quite regularly, especially of a Friday evening. "Cassandra," they'll say, "let us go for a knock-off beer." To which I reply, "But of course, dear friend/colleague/acquaintance/random person who wants to drink beer with me." :D

Thanks for the description of a knock-off beer, it's grouse, mate (more australianessness, meaning how excellent, friend!)
