Re: Music to drink to...

Most of Strange Days, by the Doors, specifically Moonlight Drive. Some glass thimble work in there that just lends grace to hammerdity, hammerdness, gettindrunk.

Re: Raging Alcoholic

I'll preface this by saying that after so many years I'm more of a gentleman now. I'd recently moved into an apartment and it was St Patricks weekend. Apartment warming + St Patricks party + I was only 22 meant there was a mess to clean up. Somewhere between car bombs, rum, guiness, yuengling and ba...

Re: Anybody know about computers and stuff?

How's things runnin now? Might also be attenuation in your lines. Call your broadband provider and make sure they come out and give things a thorough once-over. May need to get rid of some devices attached to the cable, reroute so that cable modem gets priority. So your cable network should look lik...

Jamaican Revolution

Old Jamaican Ginger Beer + Bombay Sapphire. Ratio depends on plan. OJGB can be hardish to find. Some Kroger's carry it, along with Ting, both are imported Jamaican soft drinks. Ginger Beer is heavy on the ginger, very nearly don't recommend drinking it without the gin. `Revolution` makes sense since...

Re: so, unemployed again

Good luck Hoss, and at the very least make your temp agency aware of this tomfoolery. Thirsty et al are right about the whole 90-day employment probation deal, though methinks that depends on the state. I ain't sure how Tennessee treats this stuff, but I'm inclined to assume its a right to work/hire...

Re: Skillz

Surreal, that shit reads like a map. Think I will reproduce that last post, laminate it, and dry erase "You Are Here" throughout the evening. My timeline generally follows the aforementioned course, with some extra bits thrown in. Motor coordination is the first to change. First a swagger comes on, ...

Re: kill me now

To all that find pain in fried things, accompany said grub with Yogurt. I tore up a largeish plate of nachos from Ale House. The appetizer for fifteen whereupon the queso is merely burnt cheddar. I couldn't eat solid food for the next three days, such was the indegestion. My good friend Mahesh says,...

Re: Drunkard Injuries

Something about a quiet chain bar makes me happy. They generally aren't used to a stupid loud drunk at Ruby Tuesdays in my neighborhood. Toward the end of the evening, we were loud enough to be asked to leave, which lead to a peaceful demonstration and lots of screaming about how the US judicial sys...

Re: Why are you drinking right now?

i wouldn't really leat this board get in the way of my politics, unless someone told me such-and-such a candidate was a neoprohibitionist dry motherfucker Near as I can reckon, that avatar is reassuring.

Re: Any other great television shows?

Californication. (Loosely) Based on a weird combination of the lives of Hank Chinaski (from Bukowski's Factotum) and Warren Zevon, with a healthy dose of modern hipster (can't believe I just used that term, never again) humor. Should incite much laughter, or disgust, depending on what you're looking...

Re: Why are you drinking right now?

why drinking? to assuage the hangover from last night. to celebrate new digs at a new gig and the pending death of a miserable career in the financial services sector. and because, dammit. just because.

Is this so wrong?

First post. ***Self raises glass--clinky's all around and drinks to those that aren't currently in a position to clinky, subsequent drinks for those that consume completely their libations having performed the aforementioned clinky, et cetera.*** Bob is looking for a platonic relationship.
