DRINIKING AND DRUGS

ok, i have some liquor and other DRINKING question)

OR MANY QUESTIONS.

SORRY FOR CAPS I AM HAVING TROUBLE WITH LOW VISION THE PAST FEW DAYS (BRAIN SWELLING)

BY BF IS PAST THE ABLE TO COMMUIMATE SLEEPY OR INFORMATION STATE, ALTHOUGH HE WAS A BAR TENDER FOR MANY YEARS. TRUE, HE WORKED FOR THE VFW BAR.... BUT HE IS NOT BEING VERY INFORMATIVE.

HERE ARE THE QUESTIONS. PLEASE DISREGARD IF YOU DON'T DRINK BECAUSE OF RELIGIOUS OR PERSONAL REASONS LIKE YOU'VE KICKED THE ALCOHOL THING. GOOD FOR YOU.

I DRINK VERY LITTLE THE PAST FEW YEARS AS I AM ON VERY STRONG NARCOTICS AND I DON'T NEED ANY HIGH FROM TEQUILA OR COSMOS OR THINGS OF THAT SORT. THE ON LY REAL WEAKNESS I HAVE IS THE TRAPPIST BELGIAN BEERS I GET ON OCCASION WHEN MY BF IS NOT PAYING ATTENTION AND I HAVE A 30 IN MY PURSE NOT DESIGNATED MEDS OR STUFF.

SO THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS. SORRY FOR THE CAPS, I AM HAVING TROUBLE WITH MY VISION AND I SEE THE CAPS MORE CLEARLY.

QUESTION #1. WHEN YOU ORDER A SHOT OF LIQUOR (TEQUILA, AMARETTO, 10 YEAR OLD SINGLE MALT OR SOMETHING) AND A BEER CHASER, I HAVE THOUGHT I NOTICED I GET A MUCH SMALLER GLASS OF BEER (BUDWEISER OR SOMETHING ON DRAFT AT THE ESTABLISHMENT).

IS THIS A VALID OBSERVATION OR AM I DELUSIONAL?

QUESTION #2. WHEN YOU ORDER A GUINNESS IN BOSTON, THE GLASSES THEY PUT THE DRAFT GUINNESS IN SEEM TO BE MUCH LARGER THAN THE SIZE OF THE DRAFT BEER GLASSES I HAVE SEEN HERE IN HOUSTON. HAVEN'T ORDERED GUINESSS HERE, THEY HAVE ENOUGH OTHER LOCAL VARIETIES TO KEEP ME BUSY THE FEW TIMES I HAVE BEEN OUT AND ABLE TO DRINK ANYTHING ALCOHOLIC.

QUESTION #3. IF YOU ORDER A SHOT OF ALCOHOL LIKE THE TEQUILA OR AMARETTO OR ABSINTHE IF YOU CAN GET IT, AND THE BEER CHASER, THE BEER CHASER SEEMS TO BE IN WHAT APPEARS TO BE WHAT I WOULD CONSIDER AT HOME A JUICE GLASS. (MAYBE 4 OUNCES).

IF YOU GET ONE SHOT OF THE STRONG PLAIN LIQUOR, SOMETIMES YOU GET IT IN A SHOT GLASS, SOMETIMES YOU GET IT IN A TACKY PLASTIC JUICE TYPE GLASS (OR THE KIND OF PLASTIC GLASSES THEY USE IN MARATHONS FOR THE H20 STATIONS FOR THE RUNNERS), OR EVEN THE "LOW BALL" TYPE GLASSES MY DAD WOULD POUR HIS 4 FINGERS OF THE SINGLE MALT INTO AND SIP BY THE FIRE. OR, CONVERSELY, THE GLASSES I HAD AFTER MY PARENTS DOWNSIZED THEIR BIG HOUSE AND I GOT ALL THE BAR WARE. I USED THOSE LOW BALL KIND OF GLASSES FOR JUICE (I LIKE A LOT OF JUICE IN THE AM), AND FOR THINGS LIKE MILK WITH COOKIES ON THE SIDE. I WAS NEVER A COOKIE DIPPER IN ANYTHING. I EAT THE COOKIES ND THEN DRINK THE MILK ON THE SIDE. THE DIPPING I LEAVE TO THE THE OREO COMMERCIALS PEOPLE. I THINK IT'S ICKY. FINE FOR THOSE FAMILIES BUT I AM ONE OF THOSE ODD KIDS WHO WOULDN'T LIKE TO MIX PEAS AND MASHED POTATOES. I WOULD EAT SHEPHERDS PIE, BUT THAT WAS DIFFERENT SINCE IT WAS ALL BAKED TOGETHER.

MY BOYFRIEND WILL NOT EAT FRESH OR FROZEN GREEN BEANS OF ANY TYPE. NOT FRENCH STYLE, NOT THE FLAT ITALIAN TYPE, NOT THE CUT UP REGULAR GREEN BEANS.... BUT HE WILL HEAT c a n n e d m u s h y ones o f a ny t y p e. SO TRY TO FIGURE THIS PERSON OUT.

I EVEN TRIED TO CONFUSE HIM. I WENT TO FARM STAND EARLIER THIS SUMMER, PICKED UP ABOUT A HALF BUSHEL OF FRESH SNAP GREEN BEANS ( THE KIND WITH TINY LITTLE PEAS IN THE MIDDLE YOU DON'T TAKE OUT) AND THE KIND YOU JUST SNAP THE ENDS OFF TO COOK.

HE EVEN WANTED THOSE COOKED TO MUSHINESS. I GIVE UP. I BUY THE CHEAPEST GREEN BEANS AT THE MARKET IN CANS, STICK THEM EITHER IN MICROWAVE PAN TO MICROWAVE OR IN LITTLE REVERE PAN TO COOK THE WHOLE HUGE (SARCASM) CAN OF MUSHY ALREADY GREEN BEANS. HE EATS THEM LIKE THEY ARE THE BEST THINGS EVER AND I, ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TABLE, CAN BARELY CHOKE THEM DOWN.

THIS IS WHERE THE SHOT AND CHASER WOULD COME IN HANDY IF I WERE DRINKING.

BUT BACK TO DRINKING...

IF IT WERE NOT FOR COSMOPOLITANS, AND I MEAN, LIKE, PITCHERS OF COSMOPOLITANS, I WOULD NEVER HAD WALKED THE WALK TO DEATH DOWN THE ISLE AND I THINK I STATED IN SOME DREADED WEDDING POST, IT WAS EITHER THE PRIEST OR MYSELF WEAVING BACK AND FORTH. I THINK BY THE 7 PM CEREMONY, I HAD (WITH MY WEDDING ATTENDANTS) CONSUMED ABOUT 8 PITCHERS OF COSMOPOLITANS (ASKING FOR COCKTAIL GLASS AFTER COCKTAIL GLASS I THOUGHT WAS BOTH A WASTE OF TIME FOR THE WAIT STAFF, AND A WASTE OF THE PRETTY MARTINI TYPE GLASSES THEY WERE USING. HONESTLY THEY SHOULD HAVE STARTED A COSMOPOLITAN IV FOR ME. WOULD HAVE SAVED A LOT OF WORK ON EVERYONE'S PART. ( AND THIS WAS THE EARLY EVENING BEFORE THE DREADED EVENT).

MY MAID OF HONOR HERE FROM GERMANY KEPT ASKING IF I WERE MAKING A MISTAKE (I WAS TO MARRY SOMEONE ELSE BUT WITH HIS LACK OF HONESTY ON HIS INCOME (HE WAS A CIVIL PLANNER IN SYRACUSE, NOT A DR OR SOMETHING) AND WAS DRIVING A NEW Z3 (HEY JUST CAME OUT), SUPPORTING HIS FIRST WITH AND 3 KIDS, AND HE HAD A FABULOUS HOUSE, HIS EX AND KIDS LIVED A VERY NICE HOUSE NICER THAN EVEN HIS HOUSE (I AM NOT AND WAS NOT JEALOUS, I TOLD HIM HIS KIDS WERE MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHERE WE LIVED TOGETHER AFTER THE WEDDING...

AND ALL I WANTED WAS A COPY OF HIS PAST 2 TAX RETURNS. NEVER GOT THEM UP TO THE NIGHT OF REHEARSAL DINNER. SO I TOLD HIM I WOULD NOT MARRY HIM (WHERE DOES A PERSON MAKING ABOUT 70 GRAND) KEEP 2 HOMES WORTH AT LEAST 200 GRAND EACH, THE BMW, PLUS PAY THE KID SUPPORT and HIS JET SET SORT OF LIFESTYLE. EVEN WITH GOOD INVESTMENTS, IF YOUR OUTPUT IS MORE THAN YOUR INCOME, IT DOESEN'T ADD UP.

WELL, SO THE BEST MAN, ANOTHER GUY NAME MIKE, HAD A GREAT IDEA (YEAH, LOTS OF THINGS SEEM IDEAL WHEN YOUR DRUNK...) HE TOLD ME HE WOULD MARRY ME ON SCHEDULE. I LOVED HIM AS A BROTHER. I SAID OK. DUMBEST MOVE I EVER MADE. BESIDES NOT DUCKING IN THE FIRST GULF WAR.

GOT MARRIED, KEPT THE COSMOS GOING DOWN CONSISTENTLY THRUOUGHT THE WHOLE THING... AND I DON'T KNOW IF I WERE WEAVING OR THE PRIEST WAS...LIKE I SID BEFORE AND BEFORE.

BUT I DIDN'T PASS OUT (DARN) AND WE WERE PRONOUNCED HUS BAND AND WIFE.

STUPID SANDY.

SO, THAT WAS A SATURDAY NIGHT. AFTER THE RECEPTION (GREAT PARTY BY THE WAY), WE LEFT AND HE WENT TO STAY WITH IS MOMMY AND DADDY IN THEIR HOTEL, AND MY MAID OF HONOR, HE OTHER ATTENDANTS I HAD, AND I WENT OUT TO PARTY. I WAS STILL IN WEDDING GOWN, THEY WERE IN ATTENDANT'S DRESSES (I THOUGHT NICE ENOUGH TO NOT SCREAM WEDDING ATTENDANT).

WE WERE QUITE THE GROUP. PEOPLE THOUGHT IT WAS SOME SHOW BEING RECORDED.

I DIDN'T SEE THE "HUSBAND" UNTIL ABOUT NOON THE NEXT DAY. CLAUDIA, COLLEEN AND I WENT TO HANG OUT IN MY HOME TOWN... AND ON MONDAY I FILED FOR AN ANULLMENT. THE "HUSBAND" NEVER WOULD SIGN ANY OF THE ANULLMENT DOCUMENTS. I TRIED IN NY, VA, SC, MD, MA FL, ETC.... THERE WAS ALWAYS SOME REASON HE WOULDN'T SIGN THEM.

I HAD TO LOSE EVERYTHING I WORKED FOR, THINGS MY GRANDPARENTS WORKED FOR AND LEFT FOR ME, AND THE STUFF MY PARENTS GAVE ME, PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING I EVER OWNED. I KNOW I POSTED ABOUT THIS BEFORE, ABOUT MY OWN PERSONAL HURRICANE KATRINA. THE THING IS, IT WASN'T CAUSED BY GOD OR SOME HIGHER BEING, IT WAS CAUSED BY SOMEONE WHO WAS SUPPOSED TO AT LEAST BE MY BEST FRIEND. I LOST EVERYTHING, AND THE WORST THING, IS RECENTLY, HE HAD BEEN PAYING AT LEAST MY COBRA MED. COVERAGE. INSTEAD OF NOTIFYING ME (BY PHONE, EMAIL, IM, SMOKE SIGNAL,HIS PARENTS - ANYTHING) HE JUST DIDN'T PAY IT AND HERE I AM WITH BRAIN CANCER AND MEDICATION BEING OVER 2 GRAND A MONTH WITHOUT INSURANCE, AND IN TEXAS YOU CAN'T GET MEDICAID UNTIL YOU GET SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY. AND HE NEVER GAVE ME ANY INDICATION HE WAS NOT ABLE OR JUST NOT INTRESTESTED IN PAYING IT THAT MONTH. SO THEY CANCELED ME AS I HAD THE PREXISING CONDITION WITH THE BRAIN ISSUES. AND I COULDN'T;COULDN'T GET ANY INSURANCE AFTER SINCE I HAVE BIG PREEXISTING CONDITIONS.

SO BACK TO DRINKING...

I RECALL ONE NIGHT IN BRIGHTON (BOSTON) I WAS AT AN IRISH BAR DRINKING GUINEAS. PLENTY OF GUINEAS AS SOME GUY DECIDED TO TALK TO ME AND ORDERED A FEW PITCHERS OF IT.

I WAS THEN COMPLETELY INFORMED HOW TO PLAY CRICKET. WITH THE 2 GUINSS BOTTLES I ORDERED BEING GOAL POSTS.

IT SEEMED TOO COMPLEX BEING QUITE INEBRIATED.

GOOD THING HE WAS A PROPER UK GENTLEMAN AND WALKED ME THE BLOCK HOME, MADE SURE I COULD GET INTO MY APARTMENT AND KISSED ME GOODNIGHT (I THINK CHUMBA WUMBA TUB THUMPING) WAS ON THE CAR RADIO HE HAD. IT WAS BLARING SO I COULD HEAR IT ALL THE WAY TO THE FRONT DOOR, UP A FLIGHT.

I WOLD LIKE TO KNOW, THOUGH, IF HERE IN THE USA IF THE BEER GLASSES ARE AS VARIED AS OTHER TYPES OF BAR WEAR.

PLEASE ADVISE.

AND OH, I HAD A NUTTY EARLIER SORT OF (MY NUTTIES ARE PRETTY TAME, I LEFT A NOTE "who the hell is patsy?". yeah, it's true i talk to guys all the time on the net. and a few on the phone, and at the va, about 99.9 % of them are men. none of them i have slept with. and i feel pretty cruddy with the brain cancer crap.

you know my user icon? the stainboy one? my head is kind of like that with a bit of hair growing back but the have really good wigs, so good the few times i have been out to things like faith healing church services at my friend's church, or at the new dr.'s office, they had no idea i was wearing one. i put a few here so you can see i am not pulling your leg).

please advise about the bar glasses.

love you all. in highly platonic way.

and watch the world series tomorrow night even if it means you don't get lucky otherwise if you team loses. don't be unamerican unless of course, you happen to be unamerican. :D
