On the other hand, how divorced from reality does a person have to be to write a diary on alcohol on a Saturday night?

Now I've confused myself into a sort of crouch, which is the position I will remain in as I back away, trying not to scare the natives...

Coz you wrote the diary, and I was the sober drunk thing person Saturday Night Sunday Morning (I'm backing away, great sheep, great sheep...)

;)

Yes, &ltself-directed snark&gt  :)

But I did read it back, even before your response, and wished I'd written create a diary...

I think itself-directed snark & G[&]T makes wonderful sense...

Sassafras, great sheep!

Here's a G&T.  Cheers!

Here's a sheep joke.

And here are lots o' sheep.  My local variety looks like this.

(I never did marry Reality, she was always on that one-trip thang, ya know?  I had a sorta relationship, but she--or was it he?--was so boxed in, and all that confusion and...yep...repression...

'Tis the english disease, or is it a saxon illness?

Anyway, I got together with the reality brothers and sisters...called themselves the realities...said realities didn't come in the singular...no such thing...so sometimes it can all sound strange no matter how unaffected by beer I is...

Ach, well...nice sheep.  I feel like your sheep now...from Nashe's description, but without the all-encompassing wisdom..or any much...elipses...doncha just love 'em?)

(I'm digging a small hole in your diary, just troll rate me and my posts'll disappear.)

(Just wanted to say that Reality, she's not worth it mate!  I heard she was doing the dirty with Realpolitik down the road last night...)

(...arf?)

(I never did learn that lesson about holes and digging...)

(See, I'm still backing away, trying not to draw attention to my confusion--it's sobriety that does me in...alkerl is luvverly at the right moments...the english are told No, no.  Repress.  Block.  Block.  Okay, now.  You're going to get three hours, right?  Three.  There'll be drink.  Wait for it.  Wait for it....

(I think the weather has an effect as well; alcohol warms one up on a chilly night...mountain folk drink strong alcohol, as do those in the far north.  Trolls!  I'm backing away.)

(Sassafras!  Some please.  Stop m--)

etc..

Still laughing and it's been ten minutes since I read all that! Yeah we're human not machines, suffer from being engineered... shy truths amble in ramblings but linear thought-grids scare 'em off?
