Worst news story ever. It makes me a little barfy
@coolallison Tolerance gone! I had a gin and tonic and was legit buzzed. Then I had a Guinness and was actually sorta drunk. IT WAS GLORIOUS! Congrats other Drynuarians! <3
@wee_ramekin WHO TOLD YOU!!?
As a lady who formerly worked for Thievery Corporation, I can attest to the fact that many a fan wrote in to tell the band just how much they enjoyed sexytimes to their music.
@coolallison Rough day at work usually results in pizza dipped in ranch and a six pack of beer (not the whole six pack, maybe half.) Yesterday was a frustrating day at work, so on my way home I ordered a pizza and ate it with ranch (bf was out, there was no judging except from the cat) and had a tall glass of... milk. Le sigh.
Your fro-yo concoction sounds really good. Maybe I should supplement with ice cream tonight to make up for the lack of wine.
@KatieBarTheDoor Hairpin meetups are how I made almost all of my friends in Boston. I moved here from DC and immediately got dumped by my ex bf, so I was starting from ground zero. Now, a year and change later, I'm good friends with a few pinners and the world is a less lonely place :) It's like pre-screened cool ladies to hang out with!
@meetapossum My tolerance for other humans is incredibly low right now, and I think it's due to the no drinking. I've been trying to compensate by sleeping extra so at least I won't be grumpy because I'm tired. Mixed results. I would love a big glass of riesling right now. Or a beer.
@coolallison Ahh me too! I've gathered some friends to help me "break the fast." My plan is to smell a beer and get wasted. I guess I'll have to be a little bit careful, my liver hasn't had this much time off in a long time.
Drynuary friends... how are we all doing? 18 days in, still going strong. I managed to avoid drinking while at a Yelp event whilst holding a cocktail for my friend, and I have the boy's (delayed) holiday party tonight where I will also be not drinking. I should really pick a different month for Drynuary; perhaps one that doesn't have so many free cocktails scheduled in. How's everyone else doing?
@meetapossum Oh I'm totally getting smug. Oh, you had a hangover on your Saturday? Well *I* felt fresh as a daisy and ready to conquer the world! Boom. Gloating.
