drinky [Jul. 23rd, 2008|03:49 pm]
Roy Janik
I'm done with drinking for a while, as much as I love drinking socially after improv stuff. I'm trying to lose some weight, so until I get to my target weight, I'm gonna take it easy.

Although, when I say I'm done drinking, what I mean is:

* I'm done drinking in TEXAS. I reserve the right to drink like a fiend when on a trip, or at a festival, or oh, say, in Hawaii.
* I also reserve the right to drink one of the 6 Magners ciders currently residing in my fridge at any time I like. I brought those babies back from Boston.

No big deal. I just thought I'd mention it in public so I didn't immediately decide it was a stupid idea.

Hurry up and lose a few more pounds so we can get drunk on a Casino burger.

Fizz

My experience of spending a year on the wagon (inoculating myself against unemployment-induced alcoholism) showed it's quite possible to avoid drinking alcohol in a bar while still having a good time with people who do. Problem is, you usually end up drinking something just as fattening.

My goal was to avoid an affliction rather than a gut so I'd have root beer, cranberry juice, or tonic water; the latter two might work out for you or maybe club soda if you're into that.

Re: Fizz

Tonic water's been my drink of choice since I've cut back on drinking (alcohol hasn't treated me well lately for some reason)

Re: Fizz

I can vouch for club soda. Put a wedge of lime in it and it looks like a cocktail.

Why'd you bring magner's from Boston? Don't they have that at the whip in?

Yes, they do. We like going through unnecessary trouble to have a drink.

Yep, though not as often as I'd like.

Go! Make yourself. Even when you don't feel like it. You always feel better afterwards.
