Virtually Gadding About

[Tuesday 8th August]
Spent a bit of time in the evening doing some work on my travel pages. I've been trying to change the underlying system so I can organise the places hierarchically, but it's only about half done so far.
Chie was out for the evening with some people from work, and staggered in rather late and somewhat three sheets to the wind, bless her. Naturally I was very proud of her!
"Three sheets to the wind" ? I suppose it means "exceedingly drunk" ? Or is it "fairly drunk" ?

Yes Sheri, you guessed right - very drunk. Maybe originally a sailing term?
It's just like the eskimoes have a hundred words for snow...
