I'm currently getting drunk in my 'bomb shelter' mad at the world and myself while trying to finish the last of this work so I can actually be off for Christmas...


I have a bottle of Redemption Rye and a bottle of Bulleit Rye


2 on 1 and I'm kicking both of their asses

I'm doing it now chaps!

My drunken spotify playlist in the background. "I wouldn't believe your radio" by the Sterophonics has come on. Fucking hell I love this song. It unleashes the wanderlust in me, I think partially because the tune is basically what they used in the opening of Euan McGregor and Charlie Boorman's series "Long Way Round".

Was making Rum based Iced coffee type drinks before, but now i've ran out of ice. Kind of similar to a black russian I guess, but with Jamican 62 white rum.

I'm also suffering abit with what we refer to in the UK as a "Dicky tummy". I was somewhat concerned that the length of time it takes me to clean up, that i'll lose my buzz. So after each bathroom break, a shot of vodka is consumed. Who said solo drinking couldn't be fun?

Fuck I don't know what i'm going to drink now that the ice is gone. Whisky or Brandy. What a decision to make. The whole weight of the world is on my shoulders. I suspect this is how Friedrich Ebert felt (Oettinger will know what i'm talking about) during the 1923 crisis. I've got the taste for brandy, but whisky will be better for my gutrot. Eine schwierige entscheidung!

Pretty much a solo mission for me today. The lady has been sleeping most of the day while I drink and do little things around the house and listen to music. Although she doesn't drink these days so every time I drink is more or less a solo mission for me.

As I finish drinking myself to death is this filthy, disease ridden city - some of those people out there who hate me are not bad people. In fact, many of them are good people. I just wish they would take a minute and try to understand. To have some empathy. A little kindness.

Maybe I should try giving a little kindness myself.

A little over 12 hours ago some editor of a poetry journal left a voice mail telling me how talented I am. That my poem was "staggering." And I fell for it. I walked around in here all day thinking I'm the big shit. Fuck I'm such a vain idiot. If I had an ounce of integrity I would have called him back and told him to shove my fucking poem up his ass. I fell for it all like a dumbass

He didn't have to say all that shit. I look at his site and he has all the big hitters on there. And I want to belong so I keep quiet. It's some poem about current events so he wants it. And all those people he's published are going to love it. But the poem was a fucking joke. But I want in to that magazine. The best poets in America are in there. Joyce Carol Oates is in there. How the fuck am I supposed to turn that down. Fuck I drank too much whiskey tonight. It's 4 in the morning. I been drinking since 4 in the afternoon. Before that
