Alright. I like the ass pics as much as anyone around here, but it's been a few days so I guess it's time for something new. and here it is.

As glitch and girlygirl found out last night, I've officially declared that I'm trying to lay off the sauce till Easter. It's not because I've suddenly found Jesus or decided it's time to fall back on my catholic upbringing, Just been doing some thinking lately and I've realized that I can sit here all day and night and cop nihilistic or whatever and whine about the unfairness of things and how it takes so much money and such to realize any degree of personal freedom OR I can actually shut up and do something about it. So... down with the bottle for lent. This is something I've been meaning to do for a little while and then I remembered about this lent thing and being a kid and how we were supposed to give up something like chocolate or whatever. So it's as much a nod to my childhood as any love for the powerpuff girls or surly upyerass comments.


And just to further solidify this whole thing, I'll try to outline all my reasons and hopefully make this all make sense.

Money that would otherwise go to alcohol can go to other things. like my long-neglected compulsive media purchases.

Been noticing my pants have been a little snug lately.

I'm tired of waking up the day after in a state of panic about what I said the night before and who I said it to. This ranges from the famous "can't take foo seriously until he loses weight" argument of months ago to the rather recent incident of seeing my neighbor out walking his dog one night and yelling "kill that queer". Just kind of time to sit down and shut up a little.

I've been a little in awe of the accomplishments of someone just a few years my senior lately and I've also noticed that there's someone else just a few years my senior who i sure as hell don't want to be. So maybe if I can pull my head together for a bit and get onto some kind of track I can hopefully be closer the the former and not the latter in a few years' time.

I can sit and whine about not liking being alive and writing DNR on my forearms till the cows come home and say that it's okay if I die because I've got x much life insurance, but you know what? That insurance policy is going to expire really soon And since I lack the determination to actually snuff myself I'm going to need to make some changes so that I don't leave anybody with any undue financial burden in the event of my passing.

So there it is. I'm still cool with hanging out and I'm certainly not sitting in judgement of everyone else for continuing the inebriation. God knows i love that detached feeling. If my saying any of this makes any of you uncomfortable I understand. I can't really believe i'm doing this myself.

over and out.

i've got a silver lining i'm looking for. i'm just wanting to get my head together a little; maybe find a little positivity in this. and maybe learn the right place to use a semicolon.

Damn dood...can't u just at least try to find a silver lining around the cloud and then celebrate your revelation with a fucking beer. Take for instance the "can't take foo seriously until he loses weight" statement. Hell, there's definitely a silver lining in that one. He contributes that very statement to the start of his "road to swoll" weight-loss obsession, which has lead to the loss of 50 lbs. Take some credit and have a beer on me.

I'm afraid "the sauce" probably does include beer.

On the upside, you have a partner in your temporary sobriety; The Strep Fairy visited me on Sunday and sprinkled the magic infecty-puss-pain dust on my tonsils. No boozie while on antibiotics.

Of course, my ass will definately be drinking well before "Jesus is a Zombie" Day.
