On a sensory level, Islay single malt scotch whisky is one of the most pleasurable things I have ever experienced.

I also know it is not for everyone, and my description might make a person want to run away.

But a wee dram is a thing of beauty to me, well and truly.


Cheers,
Ian

Neither do I, but that’s because it’s a wee dram, and then I am done.

Plus, it seems alcohol twiddles my melon really easily, so I never drink enough to be body-poisoned anyway...even after downing four Cosmos in 40 minutes, lol.

I don’t get any more impulsive when I am lightly intoxicated on ethanol, but for sure, it makes me forget lyrics to songs like nobody’s business, so no drinking before karaoke.

And Dexedrine doesn’t mask anything for me. Even if I take Dex a couple of hours beforehand, I still feel the alcohol like always.

I don’t really change when I am buzzed, I just become “more me,” which is to say, more playful, I sing more, cry more easily, and let loose with something lighthearted and smutty a little more often.

It’s party-time in the garage at work this afternoon...let the liver damage commence. There’s some talk of firing up the grill on account of the 6" of snow we got, and the 6" we’re going to get tomorrow.


Cheers,
Ian

New taco shop opening in Wichita next month ... FUZZY'S !

Can't wait to try out the food. Oreo churros make me think of a treat that our
very own Fuzzy might make.

Re: Come on In If You're Online And Say Anything: Part III

Listening to music, and in particular, singing along with music, is for me a potent antidepressant...amazing really.

But what I have also discovered is that it can relieve chronic pain.

I’m not sure how that works, and for the moment, I don’t really care. I’m just glad that it does.


Cheers,
Ian

Re: Come on In If You're Online And Say Anything: Part III

My office mates are really nice. Very friendly and helpful. Most of them are probably 10 to 15 years younger than me. Lots of guys fresh out of uni. I was quite worried about that but I've realised that I probably get along better with younger people. They are less serious and their conversations are more up my street. A bit silly and more light hearted perhaps.

They are also all scary smart and knowledgeable. So much more than me and that puts huge pressure on me. Im Feeling pretty overwhelmed and I'm worried that they'll soon find out how ignorant I really am (I really really am compared to them. It doesn't help that I've been out of work for almost two years and remember nothing of even the stuff I used to work on).

I've got my psychiatrist spot in two weeks. I hope once I start meds the fog will lift a bit. I wonder if I'll get crippling anxiety again. What a t if they won't prescribe meds? That would be a real bummer.
