add zoloft and low-grade hangover, play freecell, lean back, stir

Elmer Fuiud (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 19 February 2011 11:19 (eight years ago) link

freecell is fucking tedious tbh.

spent a lot of time this week watching young people going about their business, wondered why the fuck they were bothering for the most part. humans' sense of a worthwhile life/survival is pretty fucking tedious tbh.

have been semi-inclined to go to Beverley and get properly drunk and lost today, out of spite and dickishness really, but this feels like a more satisfactory and less damaging way of getting some of that out of my system. damn i love a temporary solution tho. temporary dissolution.

okay, "Remind" is proper classic. lolstalgia. here is a notable story from the annals of Hull history

man this tension between wanting to escape and knowing i won't escape very far, tawdriness in advance, wanting a pub with chet baker on the jukey or at the least Stock Aitken and Watermang's "SS Paparazzi" - lolstalgia again tho - can't even get a pint of Double Diamond anywhere now, not sure they still brew it - or that i want it tbh

not sure how much of this is the medicine flexing its muscles either but

not cut out for another 5 - 50 years of this really and pondering whether maintaining a facade of functional dignity is doing anybody any favours when i shd be beatniking it out in the wilds of this hilarious city

Allegedly - tho you know history and publicity make bitch liars and memory is quite rewriteable - this is where we started to win the Civil War. Charles was keen on coming into the city and securing the arsenal and the docks but local capitalist plutocrat guys got together in this pub and told the mayor to lock the gates and tell him to get tae fuck. which he did, against his will. this pub is really cosy and still pub-esque, which y'know is an increasingly rare fucking commodity in the 2K10s. also where i heard some dude being accused of being "racist against gays".

Elmer Fuiud (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 19 February 2011 12:07 (eight years ago) link

Pubs I have loved: the Piper, the Gardener's, Hockneys when it were old and working man's clubbish, the Golden Ball, the Engineers, the Mint, the Black Boy, the Olde White Hart, the Schnapps Bar, the Empress, the Star of the West RIP you were a beautiful dump, the Station, the Turnpike and that stupid sports bar at the back where I watched us win the play-offs and got so splattered by half time I didn't remember a fucking thing about it, also where I watched Eubank fuck up Watson but missed the fatal punch and said something unfortunate about him not getting tagged that hard

this virtual pub crawl is kinda sick-making with lolstalgia. the probable siberian wind knifing ice-sleet into yr face is doing a good job of keeping my safe in the house tho. am gonna cheat and make myself a little sump'n sump'n now to tilt the balance. might as well be hung for a whole pen full of sheep etc

fat balls for wild birds (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 19 February 2011 12:27 (eight years ago) link

really tho motivation is a funny thing. i dunno that aristotle was right about the unexamined life not being worth living but fuck i seem to see a lot of unexamination going down. ruminants. being a ruminant is plenty cool if you like cud tho. absolutely don't despise peoples alignments with themselves, just am wickedly out of sync and not getting how to get my groove "back" ha like it's been there since what 10? 5? seem to remember being reasonable centred playing army on the grass square at the top of our street but even then i was more of a cloud watcher rilly.

you reach this point when you think "man i am all ego self-centred aspie not good for people observer only bollocks" and that's a thing that you can be, one doesn't like to think it about yourself but we aren't all cut out for being productive and reasonable and loveable guys really

ginger ale not great with sambuca fwiw

got no real issues with the rest

Achillean Heel (darraghmac), Saturday, 19 February 2011 12:34 (eight years ago) link

yeah that seems true, wdn't mix sambuca tho tbh. ginger beer, not ale. I like ginger ale but it's a pretty low key mixer? have an unopened bottle that i might bring into play when the ginger beer runs out unless mrs v comes home and slaps me upside my head

fat balls for wild birds (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 19 February 2011 12:34 (eight years ago) link

which wd be a dece excuse tbh

fat balls for wild birds (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 19 February 2011 12:35 (eight years ago) link

we should totally go out on the lash, darragh, it would be most excellent times imo

fat balls for wild birds (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 19 February 2011 12:35 (eight years ago) link

no issues with that either, but no aristotle pls

Achillean Heel (darraghmac), Saturday, 19 February 2011 12:38 (eight years ago) link

i don't do aristotle in the pub, or anywhere else really, dude was shit

not that i is so sad, i am kinda focused and edgy and probly not real level-headed but sadness is sort of not there except an impending "i like where this relationship is going" gif sadness and wondering hmmm can i keep up a veneer of not-great for another 10 years or so until the kids are all safely launched

Literally reading his Wikipedia page and had to scroll back up twice to look at his picture again. He’d make a great spy.

gyac, Monday, 11 November 2019 21:28 (yesterday) link

Tony Watt, the most outspokenly pro-Labour footballer on Twitter as far as I know, is quite pally with Sutton. yeah the Celtic connection but I think there's something to Sutton having a decent political outlook for all his cockish comments about football itself

I prefer to post tweets to there to annoy people who bitch about it, and any other stupid thing that comes into my head tbh

gyac, Monday, 11 November 2019 21:28 (yesterday) link

I'll also say this about Watt: for a kid who got to play for the club he supports, he's incredibly non-bitter about having left them so soon, and he tries to watch (and enthuse about) all their games whenever it doesn't interfere with his gaming and occasional CSKA Sofia career

I went on an 18 hour bender yesterday and ended up sympathy snogging some guy at 5 in the morning which was a drunky dick move on my part and the bad feeling is making this hangover worserer.

Christmas TV adverts make me sad and angry and anxious and I feel like I am a wastrel burden on my family and loved ones and I hate Chris Sutton's stupid fucking opinions that he has for money and whitey's on the moon.

Taking the information from imago on board tho.

I was cataloguing my drunky personae this afternoon, just realised there are a few of them. None of them are angry or nasty tbh but I used to have a horrible mouth on me when my ex tried to suggest I'd had enough to drink, another regret I'm never gonna outlive.

There's a funny drunky and a can't talk any more drunky and a sententious won't shut up drunky who I really regret and there's karaoke drunky and talking to random strangers who probably want you to fuck off unless they're drunky drunky and the what if I just keep walking all the way round the world drunky

Aww. Seen this just now - checking out the Blue Saturday bookmark right before bed. As one does.

Things are.. shiny on the surface, rotten under the hood. Blue Saturdays stretching into Tuesdays and days after and into the next Blue Saturday, obliterating the time and days in between.

I do not know if I fear life or fear death any more; I can't uncouple/untangle the two. I cannot understand or make a choice or decide if making said choice is of importance at all. Can't grasp if my fear is of dying, of living, of both or of neither. Is desiring suicide really desiring eternal life? Life so far has been a perpetuation of being amazed at how one can "get by" while feeling thoroughly lost and scared at the same time. It's a twilight zone (a twilight zone indeed best reserved for 77, not if my gibberish will make more sense on a diff borad, but), this.

Drinking is a terrible, dumb way of stopping time. And it doesn't stop it, it eats it.

Joe Kulak 😎 (Noodle Vague), Monday, 11 November 2019 23:37 (yesterday) link

Otfm. It's like Schrödingers cat with an added Catch-22. When stopping or eating time cancel each other out and are nullified. And the 'null-ness' of nullify sounds way more appealing than it should.
