Yesterday was my birthday and for the first time in years I managed to get myself quite drunk. The venue: a bar with the basement taken over for a work christmas party. The people: good friends in the service industry. The kicker: the ‘speakeasy’ room where for the first time in months I was able to partake in the holiest of ceremonies – an indoor cigarette and a pleasant joint. There was a vibrant atmosphere, possibly due to the illegal nature of the festivities, more likely than not though the casual camaraderie between people who have to deal with other people for a living.
I quite enjoyed myself and as I mentioned before, managed to get quite drunk in a short period of time. This is an unusal activity for me because for the last three years I’ve been trapped in the suburbs, forced to drive myself and my friends around as we hit the town. The responsible citizen that I am usually requires a limit on alchohol intake. So it was a rare treat to be able to get smashed and not have to worry about a thirty dollar cab fair.
In other news, I’ve decided that I’m going to have to redesign my site and add a righthand sidebar to keep track of hot topics, otherwise known as pieces that I’ve written that are still generating quite a lot of comments. This would also allow me the opportunity to really start piling on the links – I am a man of habit and would quite enjoy having all of my daily links in one place.
In the meantime, I’ll simply present some of these pieces:

  1. Sounds like a GREAT party to me…..of course, as I have posted many times….I have been using the “EVIL” weed for 40 years……hell, I don’t even keep cold beer in the refrigerator in the heat of summer! Thanks for the CANADA (getting screwed too) note…..I heard that on the news the evening I wrote the post…………..and it is getting even uglier!!!

  2. I have no doubt that the U.S. dictating who get’s contracts where will have severe ramifications in the political network. The interest of nations is the interest of business nowadays it seems. I wonder how often elected politicians forget that ultimately they are responsible for the well being of their constituents.
    As for the pot.. well you know as well as I know how it enhances creativity. People just have to find their creative channel in which to outlet their self. I find writing to be my outlet, I wonder what everyone else does?

  3. This sounds like the words of a ‘teenager” but I honestly don’t know where my life would have gone without pot—-everything creative I do, started with a pot session…all though my writing
    started when I was a preteen…..and the pot just enhanced it……Pot was the discovery point for eating/preparing/enjoying all kinds of food, music, sex, art and my total thought process.
    What do other people do? I have about a dozen good blog friends, at least 3 are recovering

  4. …just missed Lorelei! Read the “enjoyment article”………….I go further than enjoyment.
    I have a CD ram that is (dated) a complete collection of medical studies done on the
    benefits of marijuana….it is in credible….of course, the AMA, drug & alcohol companies and the religious right won’t allow beneficial marijuana.
