    The countdown has begun.

    Post  RobertBlack on Mon Jan 02, 2017 5:36 pm

    Binge-o'clock in 30 hours...and counting.

    I have been good, wrote a shitload, finished a short story so now I can concentrate on straight fiction. Got a new horror idea.

    Plus I improved most of my book covers.

    study

    You lucky bastard. I haven't binged since New Year's Eve. Gonna try to say on the wagon at least a week and shit done, even though I'm not working til tomorrow evening so I could theoretically go on one tonight....

    Ok, so that's still within the realm of possibility, but I'm gonna try my darnedest not to.

    Drinking is entirely counter-productive in every way possible. Glad you got some shit done betwixts benders.

    I teach about 25-30 hours a week, consistently and soberly, but the moment I get the chance I usually pounce...

    Almost blew it on New Years, but I managed to sleep it off a few hours and get back to work on time, prepped, and (pretending to be) bright-eyed.

    It's called acting, and I am a true thespian when it comes to covering up being completely wrecked from the night(s) before.

    In my last teaching years, I made an art of teaching hungover.

    In Germany I was driving like 2.5 hours (which was stressful as wrong side of the road for me) then I had to teach 9 classes in a huge company, in the middle of nowhere, then drive back.

    I got up before 5 am and I got back about 8 pm, often much later like 11 pm. I was fucking exhausted at the end. It was good money though.

    I figured it was such Hell that may as well be hungover as well. Started off with a couple of beers, then advanced to getting trashed on scotch.

    Never missed a class, was never late, the entire semester.

    No one else would do it. No one. No other teacher could cope with it.

    They wanted me to do it again the next semester. But I said my licence had expired.

    They did not fire me, just never gave me anymore classes. Not one.

    Cold German cunts.

    One night I got incredibly drunk and e-mailed the guy at the school. A few doozies.

    He met Robert Black.

    My workload drops off this month considerably, starting today, on account The Spring Festival and the run up to it. I'm already done for the day and it's 7:30 PM. And I don't have to work til tomorrow evening.

    So obviously I need to go on one. I mean, duhhrrr. What else am I gonna do, get my shit together? That's boring. Rolling Eyes

    Ahhh yes, telling people off over email over RL matters...

    It's so much more personal than what goes on on a forum.  

    I've got a whole different style when I do that.  I really like to drive it in too, hard.  Twisted Evil

    I actually blew a publishing contract that way, for The Control Sickness, a few weeks before the books were to reach the shelves, in NZ.

    I still have the e-mail I think.

    Why don't you shove your 5 % of net up your ass!

    I regretted it hugely back then, but not now. The book wasn't ready.

    Everything happens for a reason, the booze just helps it along.

    I suppose you're write. Who would ever bother to write a novel who wasn't a drunk?

    To me, the two go hand-in-hand.

    It's a lot of fkn work.  The editing, at least for me, takes longer than manuscript.

    But I have an issue of omitting words, as you may have noticed in my posts.

    Then in editing I still don't see those missing words either.  My brain kinda just assumes they are there.

    I'd had this problem since primary school.

    Last binge these 3 Taiwan girls like called my Facebook in the middle of it

    They were in a taxi I think

    Sadly, they could not speak a word of English

    No idea what they wanted

    It was kind of scary, actually

    Uh, I've had a lot more that. But I don't fuck and tell.

    The African girl is more like a GF or something. I don't know, she's stressing me out right now with her bullshit.

    I told her "I don't need your fkn bullshit" but I still keep getting it. pale

    I swear she sleeps 20 hours a day. I've never met anyone so fkn ridiculously lazy.

    Yesterday I told her to go to the store. This is after she had slept all night and all day. And she was like "No, you go." And I was like WTF? I went to the store before and I fkn worked and all you did was sleep. And she was just like "I'm sleepy." Rolling Eyes

    Who fkn sleeps that much? I don't. I don't sleep for days sometimes. Finally, this morning I went down for sleep and she woke me up two hours into it, cuz I guess she was awake and bored or whatever.

    Bad night, one of my mates is depressed, so I Facebook messaged his parents.

    His Mum said something like I am coming instead of concerned, so being drunk I took that as a flirt, and said I always liked her, blah, blah, blah

    It's rare that I ever wake up from a night of drinking and haven't done something stupid online.

    Yes, just beer...

    It's the only way to lift a hangover, sip beer slowly, or a bloody Mary

    Hit on your depressed friends mom.  Yeah, that's gonna take a while to live down.

    I've gotten really good at apologizing for shit I can't even remember doing or saying.

    Word of advice:  don't drink before a job interview.  Razz

    Knowing you, you'll probably make a pass at the interviewer.
