Yummy, I like proseco!

I think I make typos regardless of what influence I'm under. And freaking repetitions.... argh.

I'm very fond of Prosecco as well - prefer it to Champagne, as a matter of fact (Champagne does have finer mousse but I find it a bit sour).

But this time of day I'm posting under the influence of sleep and espresso. Just got up - very late for me, but Renzo and I both had a deep sleep.

I was very drunk yesterday and didn't post at all.  I sat by the pool (attractively priced at $9.99, Canadian Tire, while supplies last) and plucked out every leg hair with tweezers.  Took me all day.  Sure, I feel like shit today but my legs are silky smoooooth.

OK, how much alcohol does THAT require?

Well, let's see.  I think I did leg #1 on four beers but, what with the blazing sun and all, I was slower on leg#2 so that might have taken another five or so.  I'm really too old to be carrying on like that.  Yesterday, I gave my poor liver a rest and I'm feeling great today.

Yeah. Ok. So? What of it?

I had a bummer day. And then 3-4 glasses of plonk too close together.

I tried a coupla times to write about the bummedouttedness here, but it got too complicated. Too much work.

Then, I got a little squirt of anger and that helped.

Kinda like what's going on now in the 'kids and brain meds' thread. Sometimes to get out of where you are, you need some kinda kick in the pants. Sometimes a chemical kick will do.

I agree fern. Some days are just too much.

(That reminds me, we just received the DVD of my MIL's funeral and the SO wants to play it once the sun -- aka glare -- goes down. So am I dragging my ass in getting dinner going? You betcha.)

After the funeral aka celebration of life of my friend Claire, I was starving (it was 10 pm, I'd been there since 4) so I cycled home and made some wholegrain spaghettini with fresh herbs and garlic, and a ... glass or two of wine. Wound up drinking the whole bottle, which wouldn't had been such a problem earlier in the evening, but I still felt a bit woozy when Renzo woke me up early the next morning.

Twenty years earlier, I'd have been unaffected by three times as much. :(

edited to add that I'd spent the whole fucking alternative ceremony holding the hand and patting an old friend of ours (not Claire's spouse, who was stoic and no doubt stunned) who had really lost it.

But, to cite the lame excuse, I really needed it, and I did not cycle home half-tanked.

As ferm says, as long as you didn't pose a risk to others, it really isn't such a big thing. We aren't angels and I find sometimes we need to let loose as best we can.

Hey, guess what, guess what?

I'm having a drink too!
Woo-hoo!

Boy, talk about sweet sweet po-a-tree.

Got a family coming over for dinner tomorrow night, a party to go to on Saturday afternoon, somebody wants to have a girls night in on Saturday night and somebody else wants to come over on Sunday after dinner. Fuckin' social life.  :pukey:
