The Clue Fairy has some words for the wise

Repeat the following to yourself, next time you're drunk:

'I'm drunk. This means I will abjectly fail at any effort to express myself rationally. This means I will also abjectly fail at any attempt to explain away any abject failure at expressing myself rationally. I should instead say 'wow. I'm drunk.' and go forth under the assumption that- like all drunk people- I am a drunken fucktard.'

I offer this advice as a person who vomited all over himself while trying to hit on somebody, and then was drunk enough to be surprised that this person was uninterested in his bile-scented self. I, too, have been a drunken moron. And I have found it is far smarter to decide 'I am a drunken moron' than 'I had a point in all that, and I'm going to try to salvage it'.
  • seeing as i was drunk myself last night,

    i hear ya loud and clear, loud and clear
  • During my substance-abusing days, I had a similar mantra that ended with something to the effect of:

    "Now that I have had my last dance with Mary Jane and eaten everything in the house, I shall retire to my quarters and write bad poetry until I pass out, as to not add to the endless chorus of 'Dude, I'm so stoned.'"
  • *snicker*

    Thursday ended with me sitting on my deck at midnight, singing Scottish drinking songs to the crows and odd housecat which wandered by. And realizing that I'm a Weird Drunk: I don't get amorous. Nor violent. Nor pissy. Nor morose, often. I get generous, and start buying rounds for the house, and the house itself.
  • one: i'm glad i missed that. ai ya.
    two: for clarity, you might want to edit "my" to hread "his."

    three: it was lovely seeing you, and your costume was gorgeous. if the photos taken of you last night don't show it off well enough, you really ought to do a photo shoot that does it—and you—justice.
  • I wish that I hadn't agreed to give the two of them a few minutes alone when it was requested. Not only do I feel a bit like I unknowingly threw a friend to the wolves, but I'd like to think that, when I realized what was happening, I could have kept said drunken man from ingesting his entire leg along with his foot.
    • Query: Am I the drunken man being talked about?
      • take two.

        Actually, no, you were not being specifically addressed. What I have to say about your behavior last night is, really, not suited to a public forum. Besides, you have a tendency to get caught up in your 'coping mechanisms' when you are afforded an audience.
  • i am having my grandmother stitch me a lovely copy of that on a doily, so that i might hang it above the stereo.
