But I'll take one last look at these poems in my printer tray so that when I see them tomorrow morning I won't wonder is someone broke in here while I was asleep and wrote a bunch of crappy poems.
Or a genius broke in! Next time make it easy and leave the door open.


And what AD said, drunken posting recommended!!!
Remember Post often post drunk post often drunk

Only idiots get the ban hammer (and one has to try really hard to be considered one under our relax watch, see Booze, Dear). But you rock. Keep going, Cheers

Goddamb. Yesterday was another ten-hour terrible day at the bars. Since I had to go out to apply for a new driver license and Real ID (They rejected me for the Real ID) I went to the bars afterward. When I ask myself, "Why do I keep going to the fucking bars?" the answer seems to be because I'm already outside. But it wouldn't be so bad if I could just stop when it's time. I don't just drink until I'm drunk, I drink until I drop. At least I didn't lose all of my vital documents last night.

Got another poem accepted over at an online zine called Dope Fiend Daily: https://thedopefienddaily.blogspot.com/ ... anton.html

I sent three poems to them and they accepted all three. The others will appear in future issues. If I keep having all this good luck I"m going to get the fathead.

Tonight is a night for staying home and solitary drinking. That's how it should be all the time. Just me and my booze.

Reminds me of when I visited a Buddy of mine 10 years ago. I got him so fucked up on Jim Beam Black that he couldn't move or eat the whole next day. He swore up and down that he would never drink whiskey again, only beer. Now he sends me a picture of his latest whiskey bottle almost every week!

Already drank 6 16 oz cans of Hamm's tonight, I can't take no more. I'm switching up to whiskey. Just poured a glass of Ten High.

Patchez - you once posted about Kessler whiskey. So what would you say about Kessler and Ten High compared to each other? I can't afford the expensive stuff, and Kessler is one dollar more than Ten High. But maybe I should pay a little more. I can't afford Jim Beam. Even Evan Williams is too much. I usually get the generic drug store whiskey. But I like the look of the label on Kessler and Ten High..

Fucking Amazon Prime is fucking with me. I used to listen to the free Amazon music player and it had stations like Pandora. But now the Amazon uses cover bands instead of real bands and if I want to hear the real bands I have to pay extra. Fuck Them! I pay for Amazon Prime I should get the real music!

My Amazon Prime was $128 this year. When I first signed up it was $99. Now I have to start questioning whether or not it is worth it. But I knew this would happen from day one. Jeff Bezos is taking over the world bit by bit, and we don't even know it. One day we will all be paying $500,000 per year for a Prime membership that includes nothing but 30 day free shipping.

But this is what puts one in a good mood, right here. Staying home alone with one's booze is absolute bliss. I don't care if Amazon rips me off, I don't care if my whiskey costs too much, as long as I can sit here in this room by myself drinking and writing crappy poems and stories. I won't wake up tomorrow with regrets about money spent at the bar, with regrets about stupid shit I did/said at the bar. I stayed home alone, on this "solo mission" and got good and fucked up. That's how life is meant to be lived.

Somebody recommend the highest proof whiskey that is available. I don't care how much it costs. I want to drink the hard stuff.

You guys are the real drunks of the world. I don't care what some website recommends for whiskey. You guys know better than them. This is the best website I ever found. I've lost all of my good online communities over the years since I got on the internet. If I lose this one, I'm out.

I agree wholeheartedly until I learned that solo missions can become even better when it becomes a duo mission when you marry a fellow drunkard.
Something's got to be done. We can't go on like this.

You won`t lose us.

And fuck Bezos

Oh and I don`t know about lowshelf bourbon, but Aldi has some for 5 bucks the handle here in germany.
It`s like a threshold for lowest shelf here. Five buck vodka, whisky, gin, tequialla... the only thing cheaper is german schnapps. That liquid rat-poison is your`s for only four a bottle

Ten High has more bourbon in the blend than Kessler's. That means a bit more flavor out of the Ten High. Kessler is good and at only a buck more, I'd say buy one before you finish the TH and let your palate decide.

If you can find it Stagg Jr. is usually in the 130+ proof range. Easier to find would be Bookers or Bakers both 100 and up in the proof department.
Knob creek has a really good small batch at 120 proof.

Price for power any of the Bottled in Bond bottles from Evan Williams or Henry McKenna. Any BiB stuff you find is 100 proof.

Old Ezra is 107 or 109. Old Grandad has a 114.

Happy hunting.
