I Drink Alone, Yeah, With Nobody Else

Here's me in coloring book form, looking a little bit stern. Just so you know, I didn't draw this. I just used the thing that came with my digital camera, because I'm a girl who knows how to have fun.

So, around three o'clock today, I started to get that overwhelming feeling of dread I always get when I remember that the next day is Monday. Then it hit me, that tomorrow is a very blessed holiday - one that gives me Monday off. I get to wait one more day to feel dreadfully overwhelmed. Tonight, though? Tonight, I am drinking beer, watching movies and obviously, fucking around with my digital camera.

My mostly childless weekend is going well so far. Last night I had another fun filled evening with Mr. Dateman. He knows even more pop culture trivia than I do, and I didn't think that was possible. I think it means that he used-up the space in his brain that should have stored algebra, just like me. Who needs algebra anyway?

Today I spoke to Stinky over the phone twice. She spent the day inner tubing at Lake McBride and then had a sleepover tonight. I saw Coadster for roughly about an hour. I had to drop off sugar cookies at her rehearsal and then go to a parent meeting at 6. The cookies must have turned out okay, because the director guy was singing their praises at the beginning of the meeting. (Get it? The choir director was singing their praises?)

This evening, I was invited to many parties and social gatherings, but I think I've been socialed out lately. I did stop by Joe's Place for a friend's birthday party for an hour and had me a soda, but didn't fall onto the floor this time. Knowing me, I probably had toilet paper stuck to the bottom of my shoe or my skirt was stuck into my underwear or something, and I just didn't know it.

What I opted for tonight instead of hanging out with friends, was buying a six-pack and watching a movie at home, by myself. Drinking alone is totally healthy, right? Well, I only had two beers, so don't even try to judge me.

It's my favorite way to drink and I don't think it's unhealthy.

Churlita,
2 beer is my limit. Drinking alone lets me follow my self imposed limit and not give into peer pressure.

Sometimes it's better to drink alone... I have on occasion done that and watched the tube for a few hours.. But after awhile I find myself back to blogging.. go figure..

No judging here. Drinking alone means you don't have to stop drinking to answer questions or to be polite. Drinking alone is awesome.

Margaret said...

drinking alone means not embarrassing ones' self or going home with anyone... why would drinking alone be unhealthy?

Poptart said...

What movie did you watch? Mmmm. Sugar cookies...

Who needs algebra anyway?

No one. That's who.

Michael,

Good. Then I don't feel so bad.

Rel,

Two is about perfect for me too.

Babybull40,

As you know, blogging while intoxicated has been a problem for me in the past and will probably be one in the future as well.

Fringes,

I love it when I don't have to be polite.

Margaret,

I only took myself home, and I was a total lady.

Sarah,

I watched the Da Vinvi Code. I had never read the book before.

Heather Anne,

I totally concur.

omg....how many times did I sing that song as the keg ran out!

Churlita said...

Les Quinn,

That song is so fitting, isn't it?

I like the coloring book you. It would be fun to make a family coloring book to share with younger kids. Aaaahhhhh technology.

Churlita said...

My mom was an artist and she used to make coloring books of me and my friends when I was a kid. It was awesome.

Dagromm said...

I think that's cool. My daughter would love paper dolls of herself as well.

Hey, I did about the same thing this weekend! Drinking and watching movies. And I'm sure I played with my digital camera too. I love the coloring book option for my digital camera. That and the cartoon option. Course it's really not a cartoon, but the colors are just different.

Can you tell me what feature your camera has. Or is it in the program. Like Kodak has something. How did you do it?
I really enjoyed the comments here. I just might add you to my blog. Though my blogs have serious stuff, generally.[smile]
I am now taking a break with my fav pepsi. I had cut myself down in the drinking of it. So now I am cheating, so to speak.
