Re: Another Solo Mission

Good to be back in my own lair. Yesterday I started drinking in a bar at 8 AM. Yes, AM as in morning - that was not a typo. According to my call log, I called for a cab home at 11:12 PM. 15 fucking hours of drinking! Goddamb, I don't know how I do it. The last bar of the night was a bar I had spille...

A hacker has my password

I got an email this morning where a hacker says he has the password to my computer, and it is the right password for my old laptop. (My new laptop uses a PIN.) However, he says he recorded me with my webcam "pleasuring myself" which I know is a lie. (I don't masturbate in view of my webcam.) So of c...

Re: Another Solo Mission

Does drinking after you get home from the bar count as a solo mission? Drinking Dewars and Evan Williams, bartender had weak pours, need to rectify that situation Yeah it does. Otherwise you would be sitting there on that goddamb barstool hoping to hook up with some goddamb body as the lights come ...

Re: Another Solo Mission

Saturday night - home alone - first glass of wine poured. It's 8:30, a later than usual start for me. Most of the day was lost to hangover recovery. And of course the next-day guilt of drinking in a bar. But now I'm freshly showered with all clean clothes on, including my pants. I had sweated profus...

Re: This Hangover...

2 PM and just now getting up. Hell, I haven't really got up, all I did was order Grubhub delivery from my laptop. I only get hangovers this bad when I drink in bars. I didn't even drink that much last night, but I hadn't had a drink for a week. At least I haven't vomited. Fuck I hate bars. I do NOT ...

Re: Another Solo Mission

Damb - it feels good to be home. As in NOT in a fucking bar. Yesterday an old "redneck" (his term, not mine) invited me to sit next to him at the bar as he drank beer, a shot of whiskey, and dipped Skoal. He spit the tobacco juice in a plastic cup. He wanted to unload on me about all the shit he rea...

Re: Another Solo Mission

So Skype is there, my profile is still there, but i have the same notifications lit up, but it won't let me click on it to see what the notices are. So if someone sent me messages on it, I'm not being a prick, I just don't see how to respond to it. I have no idea how I got a former Craigslist hooku...

Almost did it again

Hit the bars yesterday and drank too long and too much. I got within two blocks of home and had to sit down, or actually, lay down. There is one of those concrete trash can protectors in front of the Union Bank building on 5th Avenue and I laid down behind it. As I was laying there I thought it look...

Re: Another Solo Mission

Gotta be up in six hours now. That Benadryl didn't help. I'm still not fucked up. This HP laptop rocks - literally. The sound of the music is better than on my Toshiba. The video is too. Hey - y'all got to listen to Dr. Victor and the Rasta Rebels sing If You Want to be Happy. These guys nailed it! ...

Re: Another Solo Mission

After reading Jonathan Franzen essays, I've been pacing my floor imagining a conversation I might have with him if I meet him in my favorite bar. How infantile of me! Why do I engage in such childish narcissism? I guess that's just what us solo drinkers do. There's some asshole out in the courtyard ...

These westcoast calls make me drunk as fuck. Not complaining
You mean west coast USA when you and I were on Skype? BTW, I went to the bar right afterward.

Re: Another Solo Mission

If this big 17 inch laptop has a fan, I haven't heard it. My old laptop fan was blowing all the time. this new one won't play my DVD, so I tried to free apps from the app store. One didn't work and one wasn't free. I deleted both. If I monkey around with apps too much more after I'm drunk, I'm liabl...

Re: Another Solo Mission

I have Smith's book around here somewhere. I thought it was fascinating how he listed the wages common workers were making back then. I wrote a lot of it down, but lost it somewhere. I couldn't finish the book, it got too thick to slog through. I don't care about the politics of these guys, they are...

Re: Another Solo Mission

OK - Looking good. This thing is so much faster than my six-year-old Toshiba. First things first. When solo drinking, always try to learn something. 86 years ago this month, August of 1933, Virginia Woolf wrote about a dinner she and her husband had with the Keynes', as in John Maynard Keynes, the w...
