Is there any worse combination? Firstly, my apologies for my absence this last week. Please don’t think I was being rude if I haven’t responded to or visited you in a while; I was away gambling my future hypothetical child’s college fund on red and busting on blackjack. Needless to say I have much to catch up on here.
I had a wonderful time in Las Vegas, drinking my body weight, riding the New York New York rollercoaster after feeds of Long Island Ice Teas and Harvey Wallbangers, seeing shows, eating steaks, getting burnt and freckled by the pool, watching the Bellagio’s fountain show while singing about ‘Murica, jazz-handing in every photo and celebrating my OH’s milestone of turning thirty. Those of you who are buddies with me on the bookface can check out some of the debauched pictures my “friends” have tagged me in.
I’m back in rainy old Ireland now and suffering from The FEAR*. To cheer myself up I’ve decided to spruce up The Spew a little. Now instead of BAM! – WALL OF TEXT! that you have to scroll through to get to a post that might interest you (and if you don’t like The Walking Dead my verbal spewage of 5,000 words is a pain to get through) you get BAM! – WALL OF TITLES! that you can pick and choose from as your lovely heart desires. At least it’s somewhat organised and everything is wrapped up in a neat little package. I do hope you like.
I’m supposed to be heading to a friend’s Halloween party tonight but after 20+ hours of travel time all I want to do is put my fluffy pajamas on, pop a happy pill and take a nap.
* From Urban Dictionary:
“The Fear” is the sense that you have done yourself some lasting damage after a night of drinking. It’s symptoms are:– A feeling that you are going to die soon (and not just due to other hangover symptoms);– A sense that people or organizations are out to get you;– Angst that you may have offended, inappropriately touched or physically attacked someone the night before;– Foreboding about the next time you meet the people or return to the bar where you degraded yourself the previous night.The fear is often accompanied by “The Remorse” where you are also genuinely ashamed and sorry for the way you have behaved, as well as simply frightened for the sake of your own well-being.
