Living in a Dream

Sometimes I just think too much

Do what you like, but I’m not going to watch.

So I’m sure by now nearly everyone has heard about the guy who confessed/claims to having killed a man by driving drunk. Well, naturally the backlash of this has started and this promises to be another train wreck that no one can look away from. One that I’m sick of already.

And it hasn’t even been more than 2 days since I heard about it. I wasn’t going to write about it at all, but then I started talking to myself about it. And you know that usually ends up with me playing both sides of the argument in my head. 🙂

First off when I saw the video my reaction was more along the lines like I thought this was some commercial put out there to keep people from driving after drinking. Then I read up a bit more on it and my second reaction was well, that sucks.

And as of this morning I just groan when ever I hear/see clips concerning this incident. The people on the other side of this whole mess are now taking to the spot light trying to paint this guy as someone who is trying to get ahead of the curve ball. Which part of me agrees with.

People don’t do things without a reason. Even unselfish acts can be based in something selfish (we just don’t admit it out loud).

Which begs the question- why did he do this?

Which leads to- why are they responding to it?


I’ve heard of 15 minutes of fame/infamy. But this is getting…old.

How can you tell when a habit is starting to become a bad thing?

Answer- when other people are bitching about it.

Angel’s translation- No more drinking at home. At least not for a long while. A long…long…looonngg time.

~sighs~ The things we do just so that other people can keep calm. 😛

Honestly it isn’t a bad idea, me being dried up a bit. It might even help with some of the health issues I’ve been having. Which probably means that I should be drier longer than I’m planning on, but it is unlikely to happen. 😉

Oh well. I live with that.


Work and the things we do to avoid it.

This is going to be an interesting month. And I’m not sure if it is good or bad yet. ~wry grin~ On one hand Lyo goes back in for surgery and the only thing I can think about is if he stays for the night I might not be sober by the time I have to be at work. Well, sober enough to drive, but definetly not feeling 100%. ~amused~ It will be the first time in a month or two that I’ve had anything to drink without him there. Damn the promise. ~chuckles~

In any event….today is all about working on simplifing my diet. It isn’t going to change all that much. Since I’m having trouble keeping track on a daily basis I’m going to try to work out an average calorie for food groups with pointers on which ones are actually lower than the average I come up with. I will also be simplifing the Y-scores too- even though the system is pretty simple on its own. But not daily simple if you don’t pay attention to it…like me. ~wry grin~

Wish me luck…this is going to be an interesting day.
