Saint "What the Hell Happenned" Day! [15 Mar 2007|02:19pm]

Besides the obvious of gettin completely smashed, what's on the agenda for Saturday? We'll be starting off at 10AM with Irish coffees. Then it's a steady pub crawl through The Grid (aka: Downtown Sacto) until we find a comfortable seat.

Tarantula is THE BOMB! It's flavored margaritas in ready-to-drink bottles. OMG. WE tried some at BIl's house last night. The small bottles are like flasks (LOL) and i drank a blue one and got buzzzzed from it. The purple one tastes like grape Nerds!

New community [28 Sep 2005|11:43pm]


Hello, my name is Emma.

I'm promoting a new community for a friend of mine, cause she's got too much pride to do it herself.

It's called onedrunknight  It is a community for the day after. You can post anything you like having to do with embarrassing, silly, crude, lude, hilarious or otherwise funny drunken stories. They can be about your friends, co-workers, family, yourself. Anyone anywhere so long as it happened whilst under the influence.

If this is not ok, Delete it, and I apologize. Otherwise, JOIN OUR GANG!

Thank you all. From onedrunknight


If you allow me to post this in your community, we will be as kind whenever you wish to promote yours.

A favor is a favor. THANKS AGAIN!

What's the stupidest shit you've done while drunk that while you were doing it you had a moment of clarity which showed you it was a bad idea but you were so hammered that you didn't stop doing it until it was too late.

This is important, I'm not talking about things you did while drunk or having a blackout moment. I mean something that in the middle of it you pretty much said "this is a bad idea" but kept doing it.

WHHEEEEEE!!! [16 Jul 2005|10:38pm]

[ mood | groggy ]

I am getting drunk on rum on the rocks. Not even that because the ice melted a while ago. And I'm out of alcohol right now. Getting into my car to go get some is not smart. So yeah. Anyone have any great drink recipes???

Being an alcoholic who is on a diet right now, i did A LOT of web research regarding whether alcohol alone can make you fat. I had read in some articles that it could (based primarily on the following argument: it has calories, so of course it can make you fat!), and others that said it can't (with much more scientific explanations which i will describe for you in detail if you want, all about the Krebs Cycle, etc.), essentially based on the fact that alcohol is chemically simpler than sugar or carbohydrates, and is therefore metabolized entirely for energy, and never becomes fat tissue in your body. But here is the unfortunate clincher I read after still more research (yes, I was going to find this out once and for all!). Because alcohol is burned FIRST, before carbohydrates and fats, in the metabolic pathway that gives you energy (the Krebs Cycle), this holds up the burning of those carbohydrates and fats. Thus, if you drink a lot of alcohol, your fat gets burned much more slowly. And if you drink all the time, it gets burned up very little. SO, "beer bellies" are not just the result of the grains and sugars in beer. Pure vodka (40% alcohol, 60% water) can also slow down your loss of fat, and hence weight loss. The only really useful suggestion i found, besides drinking only liquor (gin, rum, & tequila are in this category, along with vodka), is not to eat anytime NEAR while you are drinking, even if you are only drinking shots of Jack Daniel's, or gin & seltzer cocktails. That will at least allow time for the fat to be burned off later in the day. Of course, there are two problems with this. Some alcoholics drink almost all the time and eat as well, and, secondly, getting drunk makes you hungry as hell (well, it usually does me, anyway). So the bottom line is, i guess, drink shots of booze, not bottles of beer (or wine), and try not to eat much while you are drinking. But no matter what you do, drinking will slow down your weight loss, INDIRECTLY if not directly.

a question... [05 Apr 2005|05:03am]

[ mood | curious ]

most people come to after a binge and can't remember what they did for the past day or so. but, they binge to forget what happened a couple of days ago.

so, do you drink so you can forget what you are like sober, or do you sober up to forget what you are like drunk?

or am i just overanalyzing this whole thing and need to get shnockered?
