Alcohol Free Friday. Will it catch on?





Pffft, Look at my ginger love muffin. Looks at how happy he is. I bet he's high as a kite, I bet he's just had a pitcher of delicious frothy beer, or at least three rum and cokes. I can tell, I just can.
it's just not ginger day is it? Here I am Day 3 of a two month hoochlessness and already I'm feeling slightly perkier than normal. Also slightly crankier, but that could just be because I stubbed my toe walking back across my bedroom from the shower. Is there anything more painful than stubbing a toe?
Normally I'd be checking the clock at the corner of my screen, counting down the mo-mos to beer o'clock. But not today chumlies. Today I am sipping tea, digesting my chicken and spinach and considering how many more hours of work I might put in before I call it a day. Four maybe, five? Who can say.
I do know this, one of my christmas kilos has gone and by Monday the other one will have gone with it. Well it better be gone, if it isn't I will throw my scales out the window. I might throw them out anyway, just because I feel like throwing stuff.
Either way, I hope YOU have a wonderful weekend, and I hope YOU enjoy the drinking and carousing. I also hope YOU don't mind if I drool away bitterly onto my keyboard for a while.

UPDATE: Chumlie Babs has been off cigarettes for 24 hours and counting, I would just like to say well done Babs, the very hard part is already over!

Happy Friday to you, FMC!

I'm glad it's you and not me who made a new year's resolution not to drink for a couple of months, because if it was the other way around I would have fallen off the wagon on the second day!
I'm seriously hung over and feel like I'm about to die.
And now I have to go and pick up my glasses and my necklace that I left at a friend's place.
I hope I can find my way out the door, I believe I'm still drunk.
God, I'm getting too old for this.
But I blame another friend who is visiting. Because of her I'm forced to drink nonstop.
I dream of a sober and non-hungover life....

Hope you have a great weekend! :)

You too honey, another drink should see you right. Or left. Or at the very least back on the road, anyway you're a student, you can do what you like.

I had a magnificent hangover Jan. 1, and a terrible run on Jan. 2, and I've therefore resolved to cut waaay back on the drink. Quitting completely for months would simply not fly unless I was getting a new human being out of the deal.
Also, on Jan. 1 it was 6 months since I smoked a cigarette. Weeeeeeee!!!!
I did that "hey, I only smoke 1-2 a day, how bad can that be?" for like 4 years previous, and finally got fed up with trying to pretend like I wasn't really a smoker. Anyway. Now I'm really a non-smoker.

Well done, 6 months free. Well done indeed.

I'm seriously considering hopping on that wagon with you, Fmc but first I have leftover Christmas hooch to get through, namely four bottles of wine, six cans of draught Guinness (there's an oxyjaysus moron) and a bottle of Jameson.

I'm starting with the Jameson. Cheers.

Are you going to demolish that lot over the weekend?

That sounds like a dare...are you daring me? Are you double daring me?

Sure, then you can join me on Monday full of 'woe is me I'm never drinking again sort of thing', that's what I did before I slipped into this dry period. I called it New Year's Eve. You can call it whatever you like, The Cringing Liver might be a good title.
Actually dammit, that would have been a most excellent name for Sam's pub.

Friends, Romans, Culchie men, send me your beers.

I'm off the drink only because I'm skint. If you need emotional support in your endeavour then bugger off. If you need practical assistance then I'll take your Yuletide surplus off your hands.

FMC, I did a 30 day sober stint in Sept. 2006 and the worst day for me was always friday.
Dammit, there's something about friday that really makes you want the hooch.
I just got home from the gym and already I want some wine and a smoke.
Ack.
Cheers to your clean living!

Blogger fatmammycat said...

Ack indeed, normally at this stage I'd be polishing the stool with my behind and give Smurf the 'keep 'em coming' speech.
But nay! I will prevail. And so shall ye all.

Well, I am most definitely having a drink. I had to submit my fingerprints to the FBI again for my citizenship application and again I failed to have any. My thumbs are fine and my left hand was OK but still technically too poor to accept she said, but my right hand is terrible. I rubbed lotions on, scraped them with a card to raise the ridges but nothing made much difference. It's annoying because it's going to hold up my application and that is at least an 18 month process as it is.

Then on my way home in the pouring rain some moron changed lanes at the very last second out of an exit lane right in front of me causing me to scream on the breaks, and the person behind almost to plough into me. I had to stop off for coffee in a McDonalds I was that shaken up, and I fucking hate McDonalds. I hate the fact that I gave them my money. People out here have no idea how to drive in the rain. They tailgate just as close as ever.

Grrrr. Am wild with angry ire. I need one of 'em Wraths at that cocktail bar.

"Is there anything more painful than stubbing a toe?"

Yes. Opening a kitchen cupboard door, bending down, forgetting then standing up again.

Wish you well in the health drive. Half considering stopping drinking myself but mainly because I can't even remember how big a twat I make out of myself bar the inevitable nano-flashback.

12:45 a.m.  
Blogger fatmammycat said...

They don't know how to drive in the rain here neither, which is odd seeing as it rains 320 days of the year. Poor darling, Don't worry, We will wrath you but good when you get here. But good I say.

BBB, happy new year! Ah yes, presses, very painful indeed. Worse than the toe thing I will agree.
On the drink thing, it's only for the next two months, (only she says) Just giving my liver and the rest of the corpse a bit of a holiday from all things boozy.
I'm quite sure you weren't a twat at all, most people are yappy and loud after a few, and unless you were with a group of teetotalers, I'm sure everyone was in the same boat.
But if you want to join in, feel free. I woke this morning for the first Saturday in God knows when feeling rather chipper. Plus I remember what I watched on TV last night-not necessarily a good thing.

Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
