God, I am having fun and it doesn't really seem to matter what I am doing. So I must be drunk. Alas, I have only one glass of wine left in the bottle after I down this one! And it is half done already.

My logical side is still working. I'm thinking that maybe I should keep that one remaining glass for tomorrow so that I can sample it sober and give a proper assessment of the wine's qualities. But then again, I am also thinking that I wasn't too taken aback by it when I began drinking earlier this evening. It was a good wine for drinking fairly quickly through rugby, though, even if it lacked the full body and dryness that I would desire from a quality red wine.

Sleep some sleeping was classic. Though I imagine in some language somewhere, that is a grammatically correct construction.

FFS, I am a nerd even when pissed.

There's a bit in Flanagan's book when Adam missed that Sydney show, when Flanagan wrote something like, "Drunk or sober, Adam's always made the show until now".

And there's that pre-JT TV performance, including a stirring rendition of "IN THIS TOWN IN THIS TOWN IN THIS TOWN"....

Well, true, but you can't imagine how bad I am right now!

I miss the days when I wasn't that bad a guitarist. I also wish I knew where my nice yellow guitar strap has gone!

I thought you hadn't even noticed because you didn't say anything about it.

I don't even REMEMBER saying that! Which is why I'm pissing myself laughing right now.

Good points, Flanagan and Ali. IN THIS TOWN IN THIS TOWN IN THIS TOWN had to be the whole band sloshed. If even one were sober, they would have put a stop to that silliness! But I am thankful they did not. It is too classic, and it has provided Bonnie with a joke that keeps on giving for all of us.

Woah, I've had about 7.5 glasses of wine in two hours. Shouldn't my typing and balance and speech be utterly shit by now?

I'd make a drunk entry but I'm still too together to think "I've nothing to really talk about ..."

Oh, no, I just laughed and didn't say anything!

You should go buy some absinthe or something and really bring the lulz.

You might be surprised at how much of it will come back if you give it a chance...
The strap would be useful, though.

Indeed. And an amusing avatar/location combo, too...

True. When I do pick up the guitar and really sit down with it for a bit, I find some stuff comes back. I can't fathom where the strap is. It should be in the guitar case. But I did keep it in the back of my amp, where its cable would be curled up. So maybe I've stuck it in a bag or something when I've moved and just never recovered it? I'll have to check a couple of bags I've stowed in the wardrobe sometime to see if it's in them. It was a very nice strap. Very bright yellow.

I imagine a lot of people here expect me to have a black strap, or something very serious. But I love yellow. Given the last two sentences, I must be drunk, as I am not 100% sure I would say that sober. Though I might. Who knows! This part, however, I would only type drunk!

Genetic freakiness aside, I recall that you had pizza before you started drinking... if you'd drunk that on an empty stomach, I daresay things might be different now.
