Done bein' the grownup [May. 15th, 2005|12:22 am]
Zoethe
[Current Mood |drunkdrunk]

I was such a good girl today. I got up this morning and studied for a solid 6 hours, worked out for 45 minutes, and only ate the right things.

Then evening came. And "Deadwood," which Ferrett just picked up at Best Buy.

I have a confession to make: I have a terrible weakness for good Westerns. And Deadwood definitely qualifies.

Well. If we were going to watch Deadwood, it only seemed right to drink whiskey. And the only whiskey in the house was actually some very expensive Lagevulin scotch. 3/4th of a bottle. Which Ferrett and I polished off.

I've reached that horribly confessional, chatty part of being drunk. The part where you stagger up to your friends and tell them what wonderful people they are and how you really love them and, boy you could sure use another drink.

There is wine in the house, and slivovitz. But fortunately I am way too smart to have at them. Which is pretty impressive, considering.

I should be in bed. We are having lunch with friends tomorow, and I have one last day of studying, one final sprint for the finish line, that I need to get through. Last final of the semester is Monday night. A rational mind would stop now and get some frickin' sleep.

Yup.

Lemme just say, I feel pretty damned good about the way I've gotten through studying for finals. There was no succumbing to the desire to eat tons of salty chips and such, no giant bowls of popcorn. They called to me, but I resisted. And as a result, I'm finishing up finals without a weight gain. Bully on me.

Problem now is, I want to fire up Diablo and kill shit for a few hours. I need to hang onto responsibility and concentration one more weekend than I really have in me.

Damn.

Why is the rum gone?

I must say, this is a remarkably well-written post for the amount of Whiskey you describe. My drunk posts are more along the lines of "Fwweeee, alcohol! YayFallDown."

When I woke up this morning I was sort of dreading looking at it, but I must say I did rather well. [g]

You type well when drunk. Low fat microwave popcorn was on my diet, I ate a bag a night.

I did surpass myself, considering. And I have left popcorn for a go-to-the-movies treat. If I made one bag, I'd make three.

Made me laugh. Just remembering that line makes me laugh every time. "But why is the rum gone?"

Of course, I am into my second glass of wine, so maybe that is part of it.

Best of luck Monday!

Ok, but can we ditch the sports category? ;)

Or..

*glances around*

We could share her. Like co-custodial visitations? Besides, we want her on our trivia team. *sage nod*

Mmm... good scotch.

I think I have a date with the Kingshead tomorrow. Busche's may not be scotch, but it's basically from that area, and it'll work for me.

I was quite amazed to wake up this morning and find it was coherent. And drinking did appear to be yesterday's theme.

I some times hate it too, but usually for a different reason.

Keep up the good work, then Monday night you can stop being one and take Tuesday off to recover.

You guys actually have slivovitz??!! That was a staple of my growing up (having it in the house, not necessarily drinking it). Dad was a Serb, and had Serb friends, so it was always around.

It is one of the most vile substances on earth (and this coming from someone who likes both head cheese and kim chee). But one has to at least be able to offer it.

Congrats on the willpower. Good luck on the finals.

Can't drink straight whiskey myself. Such a lightweight wuss. :)

Scotch neat requires two things: really good scotch, and the right frame of mind. It's not something I drink all the time, but when I do I realy enjoy it.
