I have a high alcohol tolerance and I always space out my alcohol. I drink a lot of water as I go, and I tend to be drinking wine when I'm eating a lot, too. For example, on my 21st birthday, my father got out three 21 year old wines - a red, a white, and a port. I had a total of five glasses between 6 and 10pm. I didn't even get tipsy.

I know the tune to every U2 song except Red Light. I literally cannot think of the tune of Red Light. I'm singing "Red Light" in my head to the tune of Twilight. FUck, that means I have to listen to enough of it to remember the tune so I don't continue to mar Twilight.

I sleep that much regularly on weekends. I'm suprised I had it in me too but when I go to bed at 10pm or whatever, there's no way I'm gonna be able to wake up before it gets light out anyway.

I shoudl go to the gym. It'll be like the healthiest day I've had in a long time.

Ooh, now that'd be just like Edge. Not only redefine the guitar, but also redefine kitchen utensils! The Crown Prince probably just had trouble seeing the spatula elements from a distance.

See you there, have a good night!

I don't like WITS, I don't think it's a good song at all, but I don't think it's horrible either. It's just so mundane, U2 by numbers. Coldplayesque, really. But I'd take it any day over songs like SYCMIOYO, OOTS, and Yahweh.

Wow. I could drink all the water I'd want and if I had 1.5 bottles of wine I'd get drunk. I have a fairly high tolerance but wine does funny things to my head in large quantities.

Also good for you for drinking water...I only do that afterwards, and only sometimes does it forstall the hangover.

Yeah I just found it too simple/bouncy for U2. Mundane is a good word. I don't hate it like Miami or Red Light, but it was a huge disapointment.

Also the lyrics are just plain bland and simple.

I can't imagine Red Light to Twilight, that's great. I can remember some elements of Red Light, but not the whole song - the horrible intro, the terrible sax, a couple of times when Bono's completely off key, and the fact a couple of lyrics aren't actually totally shithouse.

I've had the most productive day in a while. Though I'm not sure it's been too healthy, what with baking chocolate biscuits and muffins ...
