Friday 14/12/07

ver drink alcohol.  I stopped drinking about 3 years ago.  There are many reasons why I stopped drinking alcohol and these reasons include:

- alcohol is calorific and it ruins my abs
- my liver and kidneys get enough of a beating from other things and I don't need alcohol on top of that
- I hate hangovers
- when you're drunk you get the urge to eat rubbish like kebabs and McDonald's etc
- it's quite expensive going out and buying lots of rounds / drinks

I drink alcohol only once a year.  I drink alcohol only at my company's Christmas party.  Tonight was my company's Christmas party.  I've had numerous glasses of white wine and I've had about 10 gin and tonic's.

I am back home and I'm drunk and I'm sad and this is because I'm not a young girl in the 1950's who left school to get married to the love of her life and I'm not a man who's walking around Athens with his fiancee that he loves in 1963 and I'm not one of an old couple who've been together for 43 years this April and I'm not goi

Yo LP!

Yeah well that 1950's girl ends up as a beaten up wife with 5 kids as her alchoholic husband has no time for her. As for the 1960's Athens couple, they end up wife a fat kid called George who has lead them into sellimg their buisness due to his OTT eating habits.

THE END

But if we are to believe 'Roman Holiday' - surely the best 1950s feel-good movie ever (you would love it) - 1950s Southern Europe, slightly stoned, can be the prelude to a whole bunch of politely anarchic, but still nicely quaint, adventures.

Granted, this is rarely true of office Christmas parties.

Much to my (and my staff's relief), I only pay for ours. I make it a rule never to go them - 'ooh, business trip...so sorry...do enjoy' - it is better for both of us that way.

Drunk blog posts are the best :-)

Drunk is good! And at least if you drink something like red wine then they're not completely empty calories... (Says the guy who's been drinking rosé wine and cocktails all evening... :s)

Jim said...

Love a drunk post! Just had half a bottle of champagne with dinner because the tree is FINALLY done being decorated. I think that's a good enough reason.

Don't be sad that you're not from the 50's or 60's. That so would not have suited you. You should be sad that you missed the 80's. Big shoulder pads, big hair, big egos. I think one of those bigs would have totally been up your alley.

hows your head? :)

tonyx: The morning after reminds me the greatest reason why I don't drink :-(

GB said...

Yeah well I guess I've got a drinking problem too: I've just had a delivery of more than a dozen cases of wine and there simply isn't enough room in my wine cellar to store them all :-(. Mental note to GB - buy new house with bigger cellar.

Yes, did the same thing last night at our Christmas party sans the whole nostalgia trip you dragged yourself through. Why not just invite one of your chums over to poke you with a sharp stick? Or, even better, you could go to confession. At least that way the priest would get a kick out of it.

No, you are none of those things. You are the boy who left Athens, went to London, made a life for himself, fell in love and now writes a nifty blog with a large following of interesting people... less the occasional nut. Not a bad way to spend your first 27 years.

Weenie.

I think the technical term for that is "gibbing". My least favourite drunken activity.

Once every six months I seem to make a complete knob of myself, the shame only ameliorated by the fact other people were a lot worse. We call it "autistic alcoholism"; you can remember peoples disturbed expressions in the morning but are completely blind to them at the time.

Reading your entry served to remind me of many instances I’d rather forget. (you know, stuff like gibbing on half cut about theology to a priest one meets at a classy do, or having an emotional rant at a stranger). I find it much easier to cope with drunken slapstick type behaviour then the hazy memories of opening my gob.

Hope your head doesn't hurt too much.

Timmy said...

I agree with Jim. You're not from the 50s or 60s. You are from the here and now entertaining many of us who live vicariously through your blog.

PS I love drunk posts!

My dad always use to say, "If your not dead, then your doing pretty good!

Andre said...

am I the only one who's not able to read the beginning and the end of this post or it's something like The Rules of Attraction, where there's no beginning and no end because it's representing the never-ending flow of events of human life blah blah blah?

this man posts his first (and only) drunk entry of the year and i'm not able to read it?! fuck!

anyway LP, 10 gin & tonic... you made daddy proud!

Kenny McCormack said...

Is that a reference to song lyrics?

London Preppy said...

andre: Im afraid it IS just a bad copy of the rules of attraction... ;-)

kenny: Which part? No lyrics in my post today

Again, your blog is a constant source of inspiration and humorous lecture, even when you’re drunk.

With your iPod shuffle you gave me something to keep myself busy on a boring day at work. Thank you. I brought the questions down to 10 and I also cheated a bit and, well, here it is if you’re interested:

What’s that? You’re not. Interested. No. Of course you’re not. :-)
