there is no more alcohol of any sort in my room & i just spent the past hour cleaning my own vomit off the floor & out of my hair. oh, & constantly dry-heaving because chocolate & chartreuse (last night was the first time i managed to drink an entire bottle in 15 minutes. yay for me.) makes for puke that's both revoltingly sweet-smelling & acrid...the caretakers charge $50 for puke-cleaning, probably worth it if you could afford it.

what set off this particular binge was my wondering despondently all through town looking for a sushi restaurant that was open both on a sunday & at 11pm -- how did i even think that was possible?

it would do me good to remember that insane optimism never pays off.

[random observation: i was throwing things out the window & judging from the splatters on the glass, i missed quite a few times...i throw like a girl so nothing's broken.]

i'm not ready for aa but i'd like to see how long i can stay clean (to prove that i can). so this is gonna be my little experiment: no alcohol for as many days as i can manage until the end of the month; if i can do it, then i'll spend december 1st getting properly wasted as a reward. of course, the whole thing's off if i get invited to any free open bars.

what the fuck is chartreuse? sounds minging.

chartreuse is the absolute bestest liquor in the world that i can afford & here's why:

-- it's 55% alcohol.
-- it's made by french monks using a centuries-old secret formula.
-- it's a pretty shade of pus green.
-- it's more herbal than sweet.
-- normal people don't drink it.

Gag. That description sounds horrible, except for the monks part, that part is kind of sweet. I am nauseated just reading about chartreuse (or maybe that's the 10 candy bars I just scarfed down.)

I should clarify: 10 bite-sized candy bars.
