So, As Sweetass Mentioned…

Its party time on Friday December 28th bunnies!!

Sweetass and I both celebrate our birthdays between Christmas and New Year, she on December 29th and me on December 28th, and as a result have pretty much always had shirty birthdays unless we celebrate WAAAY in advance, or LOOONG afterwards- giving friends and family the chance to recover from hangovers, holidays, overeating and overspending.
We’ve decided to party like total rockstars with as many fellow bloggers as we can at…

Why there?
Coz it’s relatively close to the major highways and byways- its huge- it always has live music- and ‘coz their booze is relatively priced!

Sweetass and I will both be there- me no doubt with feathers on and maybe bells too- and we both are looking forward to celebrating our birthdays decently for once!!!
oh- and if you didn’t get an “official invite” email from me it’s only coz I don’t have an email addy for you, not ‘coz you aren’t invited or something… Will, Bridget, Gremlin… this means you!

I’m Still Sane…

Though some people may argue that point with me…
It’s Friday and its a long weekend. I’m partying with Glugster & Sweetass tonight so its a phenomenal Friday already!
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all the unbelievably caring comments, emails and IM sessions helping me deal with my Damien drama of the last coupla days…
Its just so touching ~~sniffle~~ and I just cannot tell you how much it means to me that you guys would not only read this drivel- but actually take the time to look things up and mull things over to try and help me!!!
You guys rock, and I dunno how I survived before I started blogging and met all you all!!!
Love you THIIIIIIIIIIIIS much!!!
Catch you on the weekend eventually!

So, Um…

I have a question- and no it’s not sex related– it’s about booze, and drinking.

You see, one of my grandfathers was an alcoholic, and he was a mean drunk, he was a darling when he was sober and he was sober when he died – he used to tell us “Just So Stories” and he cooked like a pro… but he was a mean drunk most of the time. And my baby sister is an alcoholic- she’s been sober for over 26 months and I am immensely proud of her. She’s smart and she’s happy now, and she knows what she wants. She has a diploma and is again studying further which none of the rest of us siblings did… So, related to this information, I was always taught that drinking alone is a problem. Drinking when you’re on your own is not a good thing and can lead to addiction… now, I won’t lie and say I’ve never ever done it- but I haven’t done it very often because I always have this nagging feeling about it… KWIM?

So here’s my question.

Does drinking while you’re chatting using some kind of IM count as drinking alone?

And I’m not talking shots and going berserk… I’m talking maybe a glass of wine, or a beer while you chat… and lemme be clear- I haven’t had any alcohol in the house since Damien finished my whisky- and I really do drink very seldom… but I spent most of the weekend chatting and I wondered about it.

 

Seems I’m Not The Only One Who Doesn’t Like Quechup!

I don’t mind cooking with tomato sauce… but I’m not mad about it any other way!
And I might well have ended up stained by the virtual sauce as well had I not Googled it first… which I must be honest- I did pretty much by accident. I just typed the word “Quechup” into my IE address bar and it came up with a Google list…


…of complaints!

It seems Quechup is causing a bit of an uproar- you can read more here, here, here, here, here and here if you’d like…
I think I’ll continue to abstain thanx.
