    Drinking Alone

    Well, I'm sick of talking about expansion and it is Friday, so I'd thought I'd bring this up. Any of you guys ever get ramp, tooled drunk alone? I do it pretty often. Usually throw on some vinyl and get smashed (Willy and the Poorboys earlier and right now Black Sabbath Vol. 4). I generally follow this model.

    So what do you guys think, is getting hammered alone a precursor to paranoid schizophrenia or a path to enlightenment?

    Neither, just alcoholism.

    I hear ya, sometimes akclone is just fine with akclone too and you can play whatever tunes you want and nobody *******..the bad news is there's no one to remind you that you have a pizza in the oven at 2 am. Unless you count the smoke detector as a person.

    Re: Drinking Alone

    I drank alone while changing the oil in my truck today. Does that make me a productive alcoholic? Or just a normal alcoholic?

    Re: Drinking Alone

    I used to get **** drunk by myself, with my dog, with anybody or anything. I did that from when I was 18, all through college, and after work till Halloween last year. So basically I got loaded every night for 12 years. I got pancreatitis, and been sober since.

    That would make you a phenomenally productive multi-tasker!

    Re: Drinking Alone

    I'm generally a very social drunk, but there are certain occasions which just call for getting **** hammered by yourself.

    The moment we get the official word that ISU is relegated to the MAC will be one of those moments for me. Thankfully, my GF understands, is prepared, and will be getting out of the way for that one.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Drinking Alone

    Whenever I get drunk alone, I end up passing out relatively fast.

    Re: Drinking Alone

    I have done this twice. Once I found out a girl cheated on me and another I found out an acquaintance had died far too early. Never felt bad about either instance.


    It's all snark from here on out

    No, I have to work early tomorrow morning, so I'm just drinking a couple of beers. I'm not getting too crazy by myself tonight.
