Random shit

Did you know that when you log in to the Drunk Swamp, you can hide your identity? Woah. I can't imagine wanting to do that. I'm loud and proud and sadly, all too willing to sound like the village idiot. Anyways, I've been up since the old man plodded off to work (he has to drive the company commuter...

Re: Wednesday Night Throwdown

I'd ride a scooter, if it could have a boost to 75mph. And of course, a big ahooga horn. For safety, ya see.

Guilt

Do you know what it is to live with guilt? To know that you let down someone you love? To know that there is nothing you can do now to make it up to that person? There is not enough bourbon in the world to let me forget.

Re: Are there any other night owls here?

Well, here I am again. Grumpy snored so hard I got up, went pee (sorry, TMI), and went to check on my chicken stock. A whole chicken, a big bag of chicken feet (dang, those little toenails just cry out for some pink polish) and some other random assorted bits including the giblets--this time I got t...

Re: Are there any other night owls here?

Moonshiners? I like that. Grumpy fell asleep in the comfy chair a few hours ago, and I took the opportunity to throw out some more crap from the garage. Why did we bring some of this junk here? I swear that man keeps crap like one of those weirdo hoarders. I shouldn't complain, I suppose, because on...

Re: What are you drinking right now?

Bourbon and Perrier over ice. But I need to fling myself down and sleep. Tomorrow (eek, today) we have a lot to do with the new house.

Re: The real victims of the California earthquake

Funny thing, that earthquake when I was a kid, I sorta woke up, thinking my mom was doing her usual kick and shake the bed to wake me. But the lights didn't flash, like they usually did. Grumpy woke up, half dreaming that the drill instructor was giving him a "good morning scumbag maggot" greeting. ...

Re: The 1%

1% Vintage perfume. If it was good enough for the three-year-old Savage, it's good enough for her now. Except that back then, I took it straight, no chaser. Mom made me drink something icky, but I didn't throw up. My breath smelled like Lucien LeLong perfume for days.

Are there any other night owls here?

I am twitchy as a cat right now. I can't get back to sleep since Grumpy left for work at 3:40. I'm working on some ideas for some more stories, and doing some online shopping but both of those things can lead to a bad end when done after hours.I remember one MD member that once bought a bunch of bug...

Re: What are you drinking right now?

Well, we drank all the bourbon, save for the bit I'm saving to make Grumpy's caramel sauce, so I having a nice champs, before going back to sleep. Poor Grumpy is part of the way to work by now (Cali commutes are a bitch) .

Re: The real victims of the California earthquake

Well, since Grumpy trotted off to work fifteen minutes or so, I will tell you: the big quake was not such a big deal for us. Both of us were born here, and we have lived through quite a few big quakes. I remember one when I was a school child and Grumpy was a freshly hatched Marine when we were awak...

Re: Father's Day

My dad died because he refused dialysis five times a week. He died comatose, getting morphine on his gums but not water or nourishment. His choice. After mom died, he just didn't give a damn. I sat with him, and my youngest daughter sat with me, and there was nothing to do but stroke his dry brow an...

Re: WOULD YOU RATHER... ... a game of sorts

Die by fire, drowning, or a long, terrifying fall. No, one of the choices is not "in my sleep." You are not that lucky bastard. I would go with the fall, as I might pass out during. Then, splat! The fall won't kill you, it's the sudden stop at the end. Well, actually, I might do a Dorothy Parker. I...
