Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

I'm used to beer being ~200 calories per pint, so 400 for what's probably less than a pint seems a lot. Is it made out of chocolate or something?

Per unit of alcohol, whiskey has half the calories as beer. So it might be worth training yourself to drink that at the right pace instead. Or drink regular beer that isn't made out of pure sugar.

My bad, ~400 cals for a 32 oz. i can't believe how many calories are in beer. Switching to vodka or wine I think.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

lol yea right.

cut back sure, not drink, no way.

I'll stop for a week or two at a time, but sometimes, after a long, hot day, a couple of ice cold beers and a nice steak is exactly what's needed.

My medication is starting to have side effects as well, where I have trouble falling asleep, so a nightcap does the trick.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

I dunno. I'm not one of those guys who immediately assumes addiction, but I think you should definitely be open to evaluating your relationship with booze. Getting blackout drunk like, ever, after the age of 18 or so seems weird to me, but I guess that depends on the kind of people you hang with too. The fact that your solution to a healthier diet is to switch from beer to heavier **** raises some red flags too.

Could be more of a lifestyle thing than anything, which is also worth reflecting on. Would the person you want to be in 5/10/20 years drink this much?

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

I blackout drunk maybe once every 1-3 months. If that.

My "normal" drinking is come home, have a few beers while I study, go to bed.

That's not really the definition of "problem" drinking to me. I dunno. If it was problematic, I'd reevaluate, but it just isn't. Healthy? Definitely probably not.

I'm really not the type of person that lies to myself about this kind of thing. Switching to a lighter calorie drink is just common sense if I'm working out, I'm not running a couple miles a day just to put it back on in beer.

Around where I work I see soooo many successful people drink way, way, way more than I do.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

I think drinking at home by yourself isn't ideal, though I sometimes have a whiskey. It's a good drink to be a bit geeky about and to savour rather than to drink a lot of it. I think drinking the equivalent of 15 odd pints a week when you're out at the pub is fine.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

I have to preface this by saying that for the past couple of years I've had a drink on average 6 days a week, but I think moderate drinking is not a problem as long as it doesn't drive your life. I usually have a 2-3 ounces of scotch or the equivalent amount in other drinks. For example, a moscow mule would have a couple of ounces of vodka on it, or a 5% ABV 355ml beer would have the equivalent amount of alcohol.

However, self control is something that I lacked when I was younger and if you don't have it then you should avoid regular drinking. If you do, drink away, but do take a step back and think: Are you getting drunk every night? is it in some way affecting your work the next day? Are you wanting to escape from work so you can have a drink at home? If some of those answers are yes, you may want to slow down and avoid drinking from time to time. If not, enjoy your drinks, drink because of the taste and not because you want to get drunk, and definitely stick to whisky or the like if you want to lose weight. Oh, and on that topic, I've lost weight without having to quit drinking, I just stuck to scotch for the better part of two months.

This is fine.

This kinda sucks.

I drank what I consider to be fairly heavily from like 17-24, and I think I blacked out once. If that.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

But blacking out is dependent from person to person. I black out every time I drink too much. In my 20s that was once or twice a week. Now it's once every three months when I know I'm going out to party. I have friends who never black out even though they drink much more than I do. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackou...elated_amnesia) has more details.

The key thing with blacking out, I found, is to surround yourself with friends that are going to take care of you in case that happens. If you end up in a ditch without your glasses and covered in ****, get better friends.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

TBH the complete blackout has only happened to me a few times, "brown out" is more accurate. My friend calls it "swiss cheesing."

I think that's a fairly common part of being drunk. I quite often forget I've met people before (I assume it was because they were boring)

Bud ice when at home or rolling rock, when out, budlight or PBR on tap.

Cheap ****. I like the taste of beer a lot though, and really enjoy sampling microbrews.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

Looks like I'm back to beer - siri tells me that vodka has 64 calories in a 1oz shot, which is like, not that much vodka.

I am having residual problems with the ex, probably a lot of stuff that would make you guys all yell at me, but it seems like it's mostly over and done with.

I felt totally fine about it for a while until an event happened this weekend that has angered me so much I can't quite place my finger on why.

I have this girl I've been seeing over, the one that's really nice and cute but that I'm not super into but we're still good friends and we **** a lot. She ****s other dudes, one of my friends, and I **** other chicks, and we're both fine with it and know about it. Coincidentally, the healthiest relationship I've ever been in in my entire life.

So she's over at my house the other night and my ex had been pestering me all week about an ipad she left at my house that I couldn't find. I have been in the habit for the last several weeks of ignoring any message from her (my ex) that doesn't have to do with "business" - meaning the cell phone bill for a plan that my phone's on that is in her name. So, I find the ipad, text her on thursday that I will swing by her work saturday and drop it off so I don't have to deal with her directly. She says, "No I want it now," I say, "tough ****, you'll get it saturday, end of discussion." don't hear from her after that.

So, it's thursday night and this girl is over and I'm asleep. I wake up, and see a dark figure rooting through **** in my room. I was so ****ing confused from being asleep, for a minute, I thought it was one of my chick's friends or something. But that didn't make sense, and then the shadow spoke - "Where is it???!!"

I was like, "Oh ****." I thought she'd go ballistic seeing me with this girl (who she hates) but she just grabbed the ipad and left.

For some reason though, this complete and total violation of my space and privacy has angered me to my core. I feel angry all fresh again, and to make things worse, I went on the cell phone plan's history and started looking back to find out when she started cheating. Well, I found it, and got all pissed off again, because the scope was even larger than I had even imagined so far. There was a reason I didn't want access to the account but she messaged me the password/account info and ****ed that up for me too. Seriously, everything with this chick is just the tip of the iceberg. It's incredible. Your worst assumptions will be like 1/10th of what they actually are.

So I'm sitting here tonight, can't sleep, and started watching Mike Birbiglia's "My girlfriend's boyfriend" and it's so painfully reminiscent of events in my own life, that it's starting to make me angry all over again.

I don't wanna enter this whole anger cycle again. I was feeling really fine about everything a few weeks ago. I had no feelings towards her, good or bad, and just was completely over it. Now I feel hate again and I don't wanna feel that way. I don't want to feel love, either - I just want emptiness there. Like she's a void.

I know that probably will never be possible and you'll all say to stop talking to her, and all I can really say is that I don't, but she persists, somehow. She stalks me and drives by my house, or will send messages asking me to come over. I ignore it as best as I can. But **** I just look down the road and I don't know if I'll ever be shaken of this chick. She's a disease.

I've never blacked out, and while I almost never have more than one beer a day now, I did some drinking as much as I could-puking-falling down drunk in college.

(not saying I NEVER forgot ANYTHING while drinking, but no significant period that was blank)

Does she have any legal right to be in your place uninvited? I don't see why you wouldn't call the cops and press charges. If nothing else, get the incident on record as evidence for a future restraining order or in case your stuff starts mysteriously turning up missing.

I left my door unlocked. I didn't want to call the police because they'd likely involve my landlady who lives in the front and she already doesn't approve of like anything I do.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

was drunk last night and couldn't sleep. she had messaged me her ATT account info because we share a phoneline and she wanted me to pay a bill on there - I didn't want the account info because I knew I'd get drunk and look through phone records.

Well, I did. and it was horrific. Found out about at least 3 other guys she was seeing - and one of them's a good friend of mine. I don't know what to do about it. I work with him every week and I'm just so disgusted I don't want anything to do with him but I don't want a fight.

I know it was stupid to look but I just got curious and wish I hadn't.

To top it all off I may have impregnated a girl me and this guy both screw so I may have to look forward to baby mama drama in the future. Fantastic.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

Ok. Man. I went full, ape****, out-of-my-mind monkey tilt last night.

There was a series of events in the last weeks that have been building my anger level. The breakin, some text messages, finding out about my friend and the scope of the cheating. Added stress from my captain's exam on monday. Recipe for disaster.

Yesterday, I find out that this same friend of mine that slept with my ex, full on raped the girl I'm currently sleeping with. She told it to me in pretty graphic detail and I have no reason to believe she's lying about it, and I've heard similar stories from other girls about this same guy but I never believed them.

Well, I have to work with this scum on Fridays. It took everything in me not to blow up and get in a huge argument with him.

So, while this is going on, during the last few days my ex has been holding hostage a very personal memento of mine that I had left at her house when we broke up - a button from my grandpa's fireman jacket. She claimed she lost it, then told me she found it this week. She kept ignoring my texts/calls to get it back, and all I wanted her to do was drop it off in an envelope in my mailbox. Literally 5 minutes of her time.

Of course I get mad and start being kind of a dick. I piss her off, she says all this **** about how her boyfriend's dick is so much bigger than mine, she's gonna send me pictures of him and her having sex, and pictures of her with another guy she was cheating on me with, blah blah. It's too much. Way too much. last night I asked her please, please just drop it off at my house, I'm done worrying about it. She says she can't because she won't be home til late and is going traveling during the next week with her boyfriend.

Well, good for ****ing you. You can break into my ****ing house to get a belonging that doesn't even ****ing matter to you but you can't take 5 minutes of your time to return something very personal of mine? **** you. That was it. I told her if she didn't put the button in my mailbox before morning, then I would text her boyfriend all the incriminating **** she's sent me, and I would tell her family about everything she's been doing during the last several months.

I don't think she believed me and started taunting me, so I told her I would show her how serious I am, and sent the boyfriend the text messages. She must have got the message because when I woke up this morning the **** was in my mailbox, and now she's gotta spend a week on vacation with a guy that knows all of her bull****.

I'm a little worried what she's going to do to retaliate but she's really not that smart and I don't know what she even has on me anyway. I mean, she could be vindictive or slash my tires or something, but I am a little nervous. She knows I still have ammo on her though, so hopefully she'll consider that before she does anything. She did change the password on her ATT account, thank god.

I just hope this bull**** is over, I've been in a state of near constant rage for the last like 48 hours and it's really wearing me down.

I still don't even know wtf to do about my friend. That's pissed me off really badly too.
