multiple drinks

10

Mr. O’Hara, erm it’s not my place to say, but you may have a problem.

“Alright, here’s your fortune: you’re going to live a happy life filled with a loving and caring family.”
“…I have already acquired that.”
“Aw, Cas, you sap.”

bonus:

Sober Bitty is the most considerate friend and bakes more than enough pie to make sure all his friends’ alcohol- and drug-induced cravings are satisfied.

Six Drink Bitty eats all the god damn pie himself and doesn’t leave a single scrap for anyone else. He will literally stab any hand he sees coming near him and his pie tin. The morning after the first (and only) time this happens, Bitty is so horrified that he makes a vow to never get this drunk again.

(Six Drink Bitty makes an appearance on his wedding day. He disappears as the reception is winding down, and Jack finds Bitty in their honeymoon suite eating from eight plates of wedding pie that he managed to sneak into the room throughout the night.)

Just a Few Reminders

For staying safe on New Year’s (and all the time):

  • Your body has a limit to how much alcohol it can endure/process. 
  • Alcohol is not like food. It is absorbed quickly and takes longer to expel from the body. 
  • Binging (having multiple drinks in a short time frame) can put you at serious risk of alcohol poisoning. 
  • Drinking even 4-5 drinks in a two-hour time frame is considered binging and puts you at risk. 
  • The higher the alcohol content, the higher the risk.
  • Alcohol poisoning can be fatal, so be conscious of how much you are drinking and how much your friends/loved ones are drinking.
  • Symptoms of alcohol poisoning include: Disorientation/Confusion, Vomiting, Seizures, Slow and/or Irregular Breathing, Pale and/or Blue-tinged Skin, Hypothermia (low body temperature, and often cold to the touch), and Unconsciousness (passing out) and unable to be woken.
  • If these symptoms are present, especially if multiple or all are present, call emergency services immediately.
  • Alcohol poisoning can lead to asphyxiation (dangerous or fatal interruption of breathing), severe or fatal dehydration, seizures, brain damage, cardiac arrest (sudden or temporary cessation of heart function), severe or fatal hypothermia, or death.
  • If someone who has been drinking passes out, do NOT leave them. If they are unconscious and unable to be woken, call emergency services immediately.
  • Do NOT drink on an empty stomach.
  • Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Alcohol dehydrates you through decreasing your body’s ability to reabsorb water and increasing your water loss through frequent urination, so you need to keep hydrated. Dehydration is serious, so take it seriously. When you are dehydrated, you are starving your brain and body of something vital for function, so stay hydrated. 
  • A good practice is the one-for-one rule: follow each alcoholic beverage with a glass or bottle of water. You can also request a ‘waterback’, which like a pickleback (following a shot of alcohol with a shot of pickle brine), means you follow each shot of alcohol with a shot of water.
  • When intoxicated, do not sleep (or allow others to sleep) on your back or stomach. If you vomit in your sleep, you can choke on and/or drown in your vomit. Prop yourself up with pillows or on couches where you can be braced into position on your side while you sleep.
  • Do NOT mix painkillers (or any drug, really) with alcohol. This includes over-the-counter painkillers like aspirin and ibuprofen. Such combinations can cause ulcers, liver damage, among other issues, and even death. Again, these combinations can be lethal.
  • If you are going to use recreational drugs, do NOT mix drugs, and be mindful of what and how much you are taking, and of the source.
  • Do NOT accept drinks from unknown sources.
  • Do NOT accept drinks you have not seen made. Try to be mindful of the creation process of every drink you consume. It is very easy for someone to slip a drug into your beverage if you are not being attentive.
  • Do NOT assume that drinks from people you know or are familiar with are always safe. 
  • Be extremely mindful of consent, both your own and others’.
  • Understand that in many/most cases and places, a person under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol cannot legally give consent. Even in cases of enthusiastic verbal consent, be mindful of the fact that alcohol lowers inhibitions, impairs cognitive function, causes tunnel vision, and increases aggression. Pay attention. Ask clearly. Check in clearly and OFTEN. Listen. Stop. 
  • If you have any doubts whatsoever, or if there is any confusion or are any mixed messages, do NOT engage in sexual activity.
  • Do NOT attempt to convince yourself that someone is more willing to engage in sexual activity than they seem to be and do NOT attempt to convince yourself that someone is less drunk/intoxicated than they appear to be. Do NOT attempt to persuade them to engage. If you are making these attempts, you should already know that informed, clear-headed, uninfluenced consent is not present.
  • All of the above points about consent still apply when the person in question is your significant other. An existing relationship does not grant unconditional consent.
  • Do NOT drive (or allow those with you to drive) while intoxicated.
  • Do NOT ride in a vehicle with a driver you know is intoxicated or who you know has been consuming alcohol and/or other drugs.
  • If you can avoid it, do NOT take public or private transport if you are not coherent enough to see/follow/understand where you are and the route you are taking to your destination. You need to be able to follow your route. A change in route can be an alert of potential danger. People have been kidnapped, assaulted, and killed by drivers.
  • Travel with a sober buddy whenever possible, someone you trust and someone who can track your route in transit.
  • Make sure someone you trust knows where you are, where you are going, if you are drinking/intoxicated, who you are with, what time you plan to be home (or wherever your final destination is), and how to contact you and/or the persons you are with and places you visit.

Feel free to add on. Stay safe, everyone!

FINALLY DONE DRAWING FOR THIS SHOW, THANK FUCKING GOD.

Now time to do everything else!

(If anyone’s interested, I could write up a longer post after the show with more designs and maybe some pictures of things I’ve made for the show, the most impressive of which right now is a sculpted foam wig for Ursula. Let me know if that sounds interesting.)

What its like to be in your early 20′s with a chronic illness

Or in my case, multiple chronic illnesses.
1. Drinking: hahahahahahaha not with that medication babe. And if you can at all, very lightly. 

2. Going out: It depends on what the plans are, either way be prepared to cancel last minute and fear all of your friends hate you. Oh and if its for food, be prepared to have a massive anxiety attack about what you can/can’t each. Oh and if your intestines are going to explode in the middle of dinner.

3. Relationships: Constant fear that they are going to leave you because you are “always sick” “you never feel good”. Dates will be rare. Sex will be rare.

4. Sleep: You ALWAYS want it. Sometimes you lay there in agonizing pain and can’t seem to sleep. Sometimes you can’t wake up. Just depends on the day.

Through all of the good and bad days you have to grit your teeth and push through. You go to work when you want to stay home and rest your joints. You go to class, even though you have to get up every five minutes and puke. You try your hardest to have/keep conversations with people, even though you are jealous of their adventures and “spending money”. You choose which medication and which doctor bill you can afford out of your paycheck. You laugh, and tell everyone “yeah yeah one day I will have kids.” When you know your own medical conditions (and the fear of passing it on) will prevent that completely. Plus who would want to marry someone that was “always sick”.

Session India Pale Ale (Montauk)

Brewery : Montauk
Beer : Session India Pale Ale
Style : IPA / Session IPA / India Session Ale / India Pale Ale
Variance : None

8 / 10

Originally for my first Montauk review I talked about Circa Survive’s song “Meet Me In Montauk” but I feel bad for leaving out another band with a song of the exact same title. xBishopx’s album “Drugs” has another fitting tribute song to this brewery on track 13 but I just remembered that this is a straight edge band and they would probably kick my ass if they found out I was talking about them in a beer review so just scratch that whole last part. I am really starting to gain a soft spot for session IPAs because they are damn delicious but don’t pack a heavy ABV so just the fact that I can drink multiple with ease is reason enough to celebrate. A light hop flavor starts things off with a subdued but noticeable bitterness before some malt mixes in with some floral hops and sweetness before the hops fade out and introduce a cracker like malt flavor with more sweetness to close. Not only do these guys have simple yet awesome can art, the contents is equally as awesome and I just wish I could fill a pool with it and swim around all day but currently it’s fucking freezing out so I guess I’ll have to settle for just drinking. If you are looking for a super smooth and crushable IPA, pick this can up because it packs a lot of flavor while still siding down your throat easier than a 100 pound shaven man on a waterslide. Regardless of your level of drinking, snag this ASAP because it really does deserve to grace your tongue so hurry up and drink!

the first class as starbucks tales
  • charles: customer who ordered 12 baked cookies and as soon as barista got them all packed up he was like “no….no no no….no, absolutely not” and then put his phone up to his ear and left though he had already paid
  • alex: man who ordered a hazelnut latte and then came back a few minutes later nearly in tears asking if this drink would make his date think he’s gay
  • hank: man who would come in regularly and set up his laptop and speakers in the men’s washroom and would come out once in a while to order more food but then inevitably return to the washroom
  • raven: ordered a cup of just the flavored cool lime syrup
  • sean: shift supervisor who took a bucket of ice and dumped it on the floor while squatting over it and was like “haha im a canadian giving birth”
  • erik: ordered multiple drinks, took a sip and then instantly tossed it in the garbage right in front of barista

I dreamt that I was hosting a house party and all the cups disappeared really early, so everyone was like “who the fuck took the cups?” Then we found Donald Trump in the garden surrounded but an absolute fuck ton of empty and crushed cups, and he was all “What? You expect me to use the same cup for multiple sips of my drink? You people are disgusting!” Like he’d been literally pouring a sips worth of drink into each cup then throwing them away. WTF Trump you monster!

           butch deloria hates alcohol . he hates the smell , the taste , the sound of glass clinking against glass as empty bottles knock against one another . he absolutely hates drunk people , and will not hesitate to pick a fight with you for being drunk if you make him uncomfortable . has most definitely gotten into multiple fights for pouring drinks over people who’ve tried buying him one when he broods at the bar in rivet city .

Have I mentioned how fantastic and supportive Eddie Thawne is yet? He’s all “I really don’t get why you think ‘E=MC Hammer’ is funny, Barry, but clearly it makes you happy.’ Not to mention trivia isn’t really his thing, and he’s at least acting like he’s having fun. Even if it involves getting multiple drinks. And then he tries to participate and feels awful because he lost the game for all of them.

Iris’ method of comforting him was a little awkward - personally anyway - but he’s still being an amazing boyfriend and friend.

Helena Bonham Carter fancies a drink. So she orders a double ­espresso. And a glass of fizzy water. And an apple smoothie. She looks rather ­worried when I order just a coffee. “Is that all you want?” she asks gently. Multiple drinking, she explains, is the way to a balanced diet. She admits her theory is not based on pure science.
