Da Savage Chickens Count
Today I'm thankful for many things. Not least http://www.savagechickens.com/blog/
I find this guy so consistently hilarious that I must share. I promise that if you go to his site and browse the archives for 5 minutes you'll be laughing your ass off. Laughter is the best medicine. I'm also thankful because I quit drinking Sunday with the help of a friend of Bill W. So I'm going to meetings and (shock!) not drinking! Not that I ever drank SO so much, but I found myself doing it more and more after The Love Of My Life left me. Feeling down? Beer. Feeling OK? Beer. Feeling great (for a change?) Beer. The cause of and solution to all of life's problems. I hope it will last because frankly I'm saving money, feeling better, I'm immune from DWI charges so I can drive how I want, where and when I want. I've yet to find a downside. I've noticed some odd things though, like I no longer speak drunkenese. When drunk people talk to me I can't understand them. At. All. That was never an issue after 4 or 5 beers. Also, my adverse relationship with food seems to have improved. If I ate one meal a day that was a lot. Now I'm getting 3 squars and STILL losing weight! I'm still not sleeping much (about 5 hours a night) but I find my sleep is much better and I wake up faster and feel more alert. So thanks Bill (and eimaj). Because of you I have no FOAD or FUF today. Alleluiah! Finally, PLEASE, anyone in the area, come to the show tonight (see previous post). That is all.
