Aaaand I'm Up

Once again it's before 8 a.m. and I'm awake. Why? Partying like a rock star. Okay maybe not like a rock star. There were no drugs involved and I only had a few beers. But no matter how much alcohol I consume, I'm always awake, not groggy awake, but wide awake ready to conquer the world awake, before 8 a.m. As much as I love sleep and dislike morning, you would think that in and of itself would be enough to keep me off of the bottle!! But you would be wrong. However...

I think I'm losing my taste for alcohol. I can't tell you how strange that is to me after my experiences in the last 10 years. I wasn't an alcoholic but I have been to a lot of parties since I graduated from high school and starting sophomore year there have been maybe 2 or 3 where I did not consume alcohol. That might be one percent of the parties I've attended. That doesn't mean I was falling down drunk because that's not cute but consumption was key. It's become a habit. I had a rum and coke on Halloween and had to choke it down. I tried again this weekend and it was not as bad but still not something I like very much anymore and it used to be my drink of choice!! Beer is a little better but I had a case and a six-pack of beer in my house for weeks. Very strange.

I think it may be partly psychosomatic because I really hate the way alcohol makes me feel in the morning. Even if there's no headache, my stomach may be unhappy or I'm just up... before 8 a.m. I'm so beyond not a morning person it's not even funny. It's kind of a mess, actually. Kind of like this post... Lol. You know how people are always like (all bright-eyed & bushy-tailed Chim Chim the Squirrel-like), "But you get so much accomplished!!" That has never been incentive to me. Waking up early means less time I'll be awake when I want to be: night time. Even if I'm just talking on the phone, night it awesome to me. If I could get the rest of the world to cooperate at night and be able to conduct business at night, I would absolutely do that. Know why I don't have any kids yet? Because they wake you up. Lolol. Those mommy bloggers are great birth control when they talk about that! I'm supposed to be using this early awake time to wash my hair before we go to Daytona so I guess I should do that, huh? Adios amigos.

You already know I had to get rid of Crown, and then I don't like straight tequila anymore. I'm about to be down to margaritas and amaretto... well,I guess I can still drink tank and tonics.

I would say go malibu & pineapple juice. It is something weak but tasty. Can hardly taste the alcohol.

Why you had to bring up Chim Chim??

I never thought i'd hear the day that Jam says she's over liq... and all cause it wakes you up! LOL

rj... margaritas & amaretto... what a sad combo. altho... together? mmmm! tanq & tonics are good but i think i'll be over those, too.

epsi... i'm not at all a fan of malibu & i don't really like coconut-flavored stuff. i don't know that i'm really looking for a substitute. i'm kind of ok w/drinking less.

adei... lolol!! b/c it's soooo funny! i never thought you'd hear that day either!! but that's a reason that makes sense for me isn't it?
