An important question about RuPaul's Drag Race

One of the sponsors of RuPaul’s Drag Race is Absolut Vodka. The winner and other finalists are obligated to promote Absolut. To my knowledge, there isn’t a stipulation in the Drag Race application that potential contestants must drink alcohol. Will Drag Race ever allow a contestant who is either a recovering alcoholic or a teetotaler to vie for the title of America’s Next Drag Superstar? Or is it more advantageous to find America’s Next DRUNK Superstar?

all our friends are drunk? C/C maybe, possibly, considering your teetotaler Clint is awesome.

Since it came up, we’re going to call this a sequel to the study room story, ok? Ok. It also turned out really said and has a brief reference to child abuse, so there’s that. :/

Clint hates bars. The heat, the dark, the smell of sweat and alcohol, and the blocked exits all brings him right back to nights as a kid and the blunt impact of his dad’s fists. He’d wait outside if it wasn’t pouring down rain, and Natasha swore they’d only be there for a minute; she just needed to peel Bobbi away from her most recent bad decision, then they could go to the movie.

Most of the time, Clint hates going to the movies, too, but Natasha always takes him to see foreign comedies with subtitles, so it’s worth it for popcorn and to get out of the dorm.

A woman bumps into him hard enough to bounce back off, laughing as only the impressively drunk can. A man who seems to be slightly less drunk catches her before she can trip. He’s laughing nearly as hard as she is, but he manages to give Clint, a sloppy and apologetic grin, shouting, “Sorry! Sorry!”

Alright ive been thinking and i think i might become a teetotaler

I mean ive seen a LOT of my friends suffer the negative effects of alcohol and ive also seen people hurt others because of it


so i hereby promise that the only alcohol im going to use from now on is as a desinfectant

mentemmortalia reblogged your post:mentemmortalia answered your question:REALLY…

I’d highly suggest some personal research; it’s tasty!

^_^ I’m sure it is, but as I’m 3 days away from officially beginning as a minister in a church denomination of teetotalers, I think I’ll give you my portion <3

July, May, December

July: favourite song/band

Ohhhh, that’s a hard one! I love Travis. But I also love Regina Spektor and Audioslave. Oh, and Jeff Buckly. Shit, and Robert Plant and Alison Krauss on Raising Sand. And right now I’m super into the soundtrack of Only Lovers Left Alive, especially the music both SQURL and Josef Van Wissem did collaboratively. The Taste of Blood may be my favorite on the soundtrack.

I just really love music. It’s hard for me to pick one thing.

May: favourite manga &amp; favourite anime

My favorite anime is Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, hands down. My favorite manga is Fruits Basket.

December: random fact about me :)

I keep a list of words that are weird and that I like. It’s on my iPhone, and it’s really, really long, now. Some of my favorites are: gruntled, craven, vitriol, teetotaler, chthonic, susurrus, and skulduggery.

9 months later and this STILL will not leave my head. Not that I’m complaining. And at the Teetotalers concert on Friday John performed this and I knew all the words. Oh yes.

And for that matter, is anybody else just like ALKHFSKDJHFDKJGHF when they hear this? Because I am.

Every. Single. Note. that comes out of that guitar, I tell you. 

It’s like pure magic. 

                         the whole place was infested
                                   with the intoxicating smell of booze;
                         but even for a teetotaller, the desire to let go of the hectic
                              & rushy life he had was definitely a winsome idea.

                                             It was bound to happen, a couple of drinks
                             were enough for a rather wide smile to settle upon his lips 
                                   & a sense of carelessness to take hold of who Scott McCall was.

                                            Despite the medley of twinkly & blinding lights
                                                   dancing harmoniously to the beat of a contagious
                                                      rhythm, the dim reflect of a particular shade of blue
                                                brightened up by laughter consuming sunlight had inevitably
                                                       drawn the little sense of attention Scott had left.

                                           ❝ Hey!
                                               Do you mind getting
                                               me a drink, please? ❞

                                  A small request embellished with his most charming smile,
                                      & two innocent orbs beneath rays of blue light——
                                     they suggest a deeper interest;
                                                  one that doesn’t happen all too often.

Rivers of Living Water

Ephesians 5:18
18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit,


I have an acquaintance who was surprised to learn I’m not a teetotaler. It was an interesting discussion. I reminded this person that Jesus’ first miracle was making water into wine and there really is nothing wrong in alcohol by itself.

Here’s the reality, while God doesn’t have a problem with alcohol He does have a problem with anything that dominates and controls our lives other than Him. Drunkenness is the problem. And it goes well beyond drunkenness from alcohol. We can allow the misuse of many things to control our lives.

We can be drunk on our career. We can be drunk on entertainment. We can be drunk on our kids and ensuring their success. We can be drunk on sex. We can be drunk on material things; technology, cars and clothes, etc.

All of these things in themselves are not a problem, but if they dominate and fill our lives, God has an issue with that. And we should too. Why? Because they can be cheap thrills that will eventually leave us feeling empty and wanting more out of life.

Do you want to be filled completely, wholly and authentically? Then, “instead, be filled with the Spirit.” Jesus equates this to being filled with living water. Check out John 7:37-38:

“37 On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” 

I love that last part. That followers of Jesus will have “rivers of living water” flowing in them. What Jesus is offering isn’t a shot or glass of temporary satisfaction. Jesus offers us the Mississippi River of fulfillment through his Spirit. And notice that river is plural. Jesus isn’t just offering us one large river. Jesus is offering “rivers of living water” (i.e. an abundance of life).

What God is saying through Ephesians is that we shouldn’t settle for anything less than the river. Don’t let the little and insignificant things of this world dominate and control your life. Go for something bigger and better.

“Instead, be filled with the Spirit”

I’m not afraid of many things. I have no fear of death, Courage the Cowardly Dog, dementors, pain, and spiders. But this. This I cannot take.

Sorry if it caused a problem for you. I’ve always found it rather hilarious given that the sequence is supposed to represent Dumbo’s intoxication after having drank water spiked with champagne. Honestly, if that sequence played in the heads of everyone who consumed even a tiny amount of alcohol, the world would consist of nothing but teetotalers!

Looking through this gem that I found in mom’s collection: Delicious Desserts Made Easy (subtitled: A New idea Book from Borden). This is a small booklet that was mailed to my mom, and given the address on the back, I’m going to guess this came out in the early ’80s.

All these recipes involve Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk. I’m not sure she ever made any of these. First off, she was pretty faithful to Carnation condensed milk. Secondly, a whole lot of these recipes involve alcohol, and since mom was an adamant teetotaler, they may not have appealed to her. The Tortoni Mold in the second photo looks crazy, but I think I’ll try the Brandy Alexander instead. The Wiz’s birthday is coming up, and he loves Feist. Since she has a great song titled “Brandy Alexander” it seems appropriate!

Although, I just remembered, the ACTUAL best part of the concert last night may have been when John said, "Kevin, do I sense the beginning of a bromance between you and Martin?"

Literally may have been one of the funniest moments.
