Are bums our gods?

I was trying to walk briskly to the alcohol section of CVS Pharmacy yesterday to get my two boxes of wine, but I was stuck behind a slow-moving bum. It turns out that he was headed to the alcohol section, too. He knew exactly what he wanted - Gran Legacy vodka, the cheapest booze in the place. I kno...

Re: Do y'all ever order Grubhub?

I use grub hub all the time because I hate to cook. And I will not apologize for that. Me too, but the shit's expensive as hell. At the beginning of this year, when I went over last year's finances, I found that I had spent almost a grand on Grubhub the previous year. And I'm on track to spend even...

Re: Ponderations on whiskey.

However, I of course disagree that whiskey should be shared with company. All booze is best consumed in solitude. Just the drinker and the booze.

Re: Another Solo Mission

It's my new Thursday night tradition. Hamm's on an empty stomach! It's the end of my workweek, my mood is good, and I'm craving solitude and booze. The buzz that comes from drinking on an empty stomach is more vivid that the usual buzz, and it's enhanced by my end-of-workweek good spirits. Tonight I...

Re: Ponderations on whiskey.

Yes! Drink it neat. I do that even with cheap whiskey. Those first few sips may be hard, but after that, it goes down good.

Re: Do y'all ever order Grubhub?

Does getting pizza delivered count? I'll have to googlize this grub hub hob-knobbery. Grubhub is a delivery service that restaurants can sign up for. Even fast food places that have never had delivery before can sign up, like Jack in the Box, KFC. Even specialty bistros do it now. Denny's does it t...

Yes, DB, that is the place. It's name is Del Mission Liquor. The taco shop is no longer 24 hour, but I don't know what their new hours are.

Re: Another Solo Mission

But here's the thing too, those people I was afraid of back then, that I thought would hurt me, or kill me, or whatever, they frightened me and gave me a feeling of dread all the time, they made me think it was a malevolent world. But fast forward to today, and I get almost the same feeling from the...

Re: Another Solo Mission

The movie Ironweed, with Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep. It's about drunks, but they are bums. I searched it on this forum, and here's a post by Palinka about it - http://bbs.drunkard.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=69493&p=1127054&hilit=ironweed#p1127054 Here's the thing - you can't really enjoy booze if...

And also - doctors may have some legal obligation to tell you these things, even if it is not in the best interest of the patient.

Re: my last lost weekend

Well, I'm not so sure about what you said. But I do know that you do not have to got into some program to quit drinking. And if some doctor says you have some kind of health problem, he may be right, but he may be wrong, but I'm most certain that you do not have to quit drinking. Some people drink h...

Re: Another Solo Mission

You’re a bold soul, AD. I can’t imagine moving somewhere without knowing the language. Yep, she is. I was terrified when I moved 6 miles away to a new neighborhood. In the last 30 years I've only lived in two apartments. Across the globe? A new language? No, I couldn't do it. Even if I fantasize ab...
