    I'm trying to focus on the monetary aspect (consequence.) It's really fkn expensive to drink here, even the cheap hooch. Well, I discovered an even cheaper local liquor, but, again, I can start at that and end up in a bar spending a fortune. I should be eating better food instead of drinking liquor, which is the opposite of nutrition. It depletes the body. Plus I got into some kind of fight the other night. I vaguely remember but I musta got knocked in the nose hard, blood all on my clothes. Sooo stupid.

    Last time I ran out of booze, I had to go to the 24 hour garage, and bought a very overpriced bottle of Jager, which, next moring I discovered I had drunk fuck all of and had to poor it down the sink, as the chick was arriving the next day.

    I've poured a lot down the sink, not for a girl, but just to get rid of it. That's when I drink for three days, then pass out longer to awake semi-sober and realize I've gotta stop.

    In Beijing, cheap Baijiu was never more than 5 minutes away at any time of day and for pocket change.

    In The US, it's problematic cuz nobody can sell after 1 AM in the states I stayed in. HOWEVER, you can buy a liter and a half of vodka at the liquor store for $13, which is usually more than enough.

    Thailand, it's sucky expensive, after midnight the stores don't sell. (some ma and pa ones do.)

    Cannot buy between midnight and 11 am, and 2-6 PM for some ridiculous reason.

    So if you miss those hours, gotta find a bar, and the typical cocktail goes for 150 baht at a cheap place. Beer 100+. They also sell buckets on Khaosan, but they are a major ripoff. 200 baht for barely a hint of alcohol, even cheap stuff. They're even cheap on the soda. It's mainly just a bucket of ice-water.

    Yeah, I can not keep liquor in my home for any length of time, not even 12 hours.  I'll drink it.

    I remember before this descent started, in 2006-7, I had a bottle of tsing-tao beer in my fridge and it sat there for four months before I drank it.  That'd be impossible now.  It wouldn't last a day.

    You can tell the alkies from the non, cuz the alkies are much more focused on their drinks. If someone sets down a half-finished drink and goes to leave, I'll just be like WTF? Aren't you going to finish that?

    No? Mind if I do then?

    I can't imagine *not* fully finishing a drink now, unless it's because I passed out.

    I did well. I so totally could've drank tonight, but didn't. Just interneting and reading stuff.

    I've gotta go on a nice long sober streak and get shit figured out.

    Only problem is, every time I try to do that, I work a bunch of stress-inducing classes and then NIGHT FALLS. When night falls it's like a switch flips in my brain and I say "fuck it" and go buy a bottle, in spite of my most solemn earlier pledges to myself not to do so.

    The dumb bitch from the interview, she is a Saffa, I waited for her yesterday, though I was drinking.

    Actually she did me a favour as I told the chick I had to switch ID's.

    Today she e-mails me all angry, with a load of spelling mistakes, saying she is waiting for me online, where there fuck am I???

    I replied well, you said Jan 4, and today is 5.

    She hasn't replied.

    I told you she was fuckable, I smellled her pussy, thousands of kilometers away.

    Dumb slut.

    I'll make some joke about how strong the weed is in SA.

    She'll be like what!!!?

    And then I will watch her eyes.

    She has obviously been partying like an ant on coke.

    Don't be a pussy! Go hard! Watch some live OASIS.

    Or you'll end up like Poop Scoops.

    Hi Poop.

    I know he is reading.

    Of course he's reading.  His poop covered chubby nanuk fingers are itching to respond to every single thread.... and start dozens more.

    “Drinking is an emotional thing. It joggles you out of the standardism of everyday life, out of everything being the same. It yanks you out of your body and your mind and throws you against the wall. I have the feeling that drinking is a form of suicide where you’re allowed to return to life and begin all over the next day. It’s like killing yourself, and then you’re reborn. I guess I’ve lived about ten or fifteen thousand lives now.”

    “I like to change liquor stores frequently because the clerks got to know your habits if you went in night and day and bought huge quantities. I could feel them wondering why I wasn’t dead yet and it made me uncomfortable. They probably weren’t thinking any such thing, but then a man gets paranoid when he has 300 hangovers a year.”

    Well, that bottle of Jager, as menacing as it looked, didn't last long.

    That's a lot of quotes about drinking. What are trying to get me to drink? Evil or Very Mad

    No f-ing way. I'm working the weekend, and I'm not gonna do it feeling like living hell if I can help it.
