Grumpy has to work--I told him to take it off and watch it with me, but he says he can't.

The stucco mansion was bought by someone?
Yep, the neighborhood was totally deteriorating. We sold it at less than we could have got from living as hidden squatters in our home, always on edge, waiting for sudden seller drop-ins. The Russian who bought the house...Poor bastard. I think he is probably taking a bath. Much of our old street has been bought up by him. We did well by he deal. Poor Vlad bought a bit of a pig in a poke.

Today was fairly boring. Work was slow and I snuck out an hour early. Now I'm drinking beer and listening to classical music and everything is much nicer now. Cheers.

Five gallons of beer? Interesting. And what was served for main course?

Bagpipes and nasty little dogs

Post by Savage »

Day and night, the little dogs next door yelp and scream. Not your normal dog barks, oh no. More like whimper whine eeeeee high scream. Kind of like if you took Paris Hilton's tiny poodle and shoved a hairbrush up its ass and then quickly yanked it out.

Well, you have to admit, you'd make that sound too.

Anyway, I love bagpipe music. When I was a little girl, when I heard it on the television, I was entranced. Perhaps twenty years passed, and I found a bagpipe cd in a bin and bought it, listened to it, loved it, but found one thing that puzzled me. How, after all that effort to get the darn thing going, and play your song, how was it that when the music ended, it came to a dead stop. Bam! Sudden silence. I mean, shouldn't there have been a bit of a wind-down?

Perhaps somebody shot the piper. I mean, there are people out there who loathe bagpipe music, though I am sure I would not like to know them.

So, anyway, back to the farking dogs. They were in full scream, and I just could not take it anymore. So I put on some lovely jazz; Billy Taylor. But I could not enjoy the music, because of the dogs. The sad thing is, they are left outside day and night and so of course they cry. I bet if I brought them inside our house and fed them and put on some music they would just relax and calm down and never cry or scream. Goes without saying that they would sleep inside at night, on soft cushions.

So, I still needed to work. I put on one of my most favorite bagpipe albums, and settled down. All was well. I got a lot of work done. When the record ended, the dogs were quiet and at peace. (I peeked over the fence--I had to know.) They may have sung along with the record, but I don't know. I wonder how the azzhole neighbors liked the concert? I wish I had real evidence to report them to the SPCA.

I love bagpipe music. I hate my neighbors.

Oops, let's make this Modern Drunkard relevannt. I had a Tiki cocktail* while TRYING to listen to Martin Denny, and then I switched to Bourbon Perrier. With a nice chicken salad, because you gotta eat. Even if you are at the age that you only grow sideways.

Went skiing for a few hours today — I’m way out of shape.

Picked up a take and bake pizza from Papa Murphys. Just put it in the oven.

Ready to watch the football game: I’m loaded up on brews and whiskey.

A solid Sunday.

If you "went skiing for a few hours", you ain't outta shape.

Sounds solid. Rock on to not livin' up to your handle.

Y'all know how life gets in the way and we fall out of touch with our friends whether it be periodically or for good- and for miscellaneous reasons -whatever who cares. Everybody is fking "busy", I get it! ***IF YOU HAVE SHORT ATTENTION SPAN OR DON'T LIKE TO READ LONG ASS RAMBLINGS, SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM!

But today I finally realized something kind of annoying. And this isn't about how our drunkard friends undrunk significant others hates us because we are drunkards and apparently are "bad influences" . You know, the types that have to ask their wives for permission to go out for a few beers with a mate like once a year. Yeah yeah, that is lame but we are used to this exile and tolerate it out of respect for our friends. And we carry on anyway and call those drunkards ball-less pussies behind their backs. But we still love 'em and will still share drinks with them when the time comes - hopefully without the ball n' chain hovering around.

I'm talkin' about a whole new snubbery. I try to keep it real by staying in touch with all close friends in any way that is appropriate to our relationship- whether it be a text, social media message, phone call, FB post, Skype call, even an actual old skool effing greeting card that I slapped a stamp on and mailed. And I'm talking about maybe once a month or two- if that! It's not like I'm texting them every day like a lunatic or something. And most of the time, people are unresponsive.

Clearly we have more ways than fking ever these days technologically speaking to keep in touch and yet, I have noticed that people are even MORE fcking lazy or uncaring to bother to try or even respond when I do make an attempt. It's not as if I'm asking them to give up a weekend from their spouse and kids to go have a debauchery filled drunkfest at a remote lake cabin. I get that. I don't have many obligations (other than getting drunk) unlike most people so my calendar is wide open and I understand that most people have shit to do and my friendship isn't on the front burner.

But the irritation lies in the fact that they do have enough g.d. time to post on Twitter and FB their new running shoes, new car, views on politics, random stupid memes, photos of WTF they had for dinner- pretty much everything lame and insignificant when you consider the importance of interpersonal relationships. Well, at least in the grand scheme of things. And last I checked it's a fcking pandemic and most people have a lot of extra time on their hands because there ain't shit to do and no place to go. I have reached the point where I won't even try anymore. Not to be an asshole or anything, but really...it isn't even worth the energy if no one cares.

Anyway the point is...what I did observe (bein' a drunktective and all) is that us MDM drunkards DO make time for one another. ALWAYS. And regularly! Kids, spouses, stress, jobs, obligations in general- no matter what we have going on, we ALWAYS make the time. For most of us- once a week at least! Whether it's drunk chat, Skype, or the forum - we regularly interact. I had the realization that the MDM drunkards are the real deal. The MDMers keep in touch more than the people I considered "besties" my entire life. The MDMers are not fair-weather friends.


***Moral of the story...MDM DRUNKARDS MAKE THE BEST FRIENDS, KEEPING IT REAL! AND THANK YOU FOR THAT! CHEERS!

So I went and checked Skype, it looks like I didn't respond to the message you sent a month ago. So I tacked a smiley on it just now...
