08:40 pm - on drinking purity...
jameel suggested that I read this drunkard checklist and post it to my LJ with the number that I have completed. I figured some of you might like to start working on these too. sebastiandark and avocado_tom, I am of course looking in your general directions.

So my magic number is 21. Just over half completed. I suppose I could get a couple others if I wanted to start stretching it (I'm a mutt, so I'm sure that getting drunk in Scotland counts as the motherland in some respect... and I've never bought a drink for everyone in a crowded bar, but I have rented a room in a bar to throw an open bar party.... things like that) but I decided to play it straight.

So 19 to get through, huh? I have some work to do.

So how many have other people done? I guess if anyone is curious as to where I got any of the points, I guess I can tell the story, just ask.

eh.

I'm at 19.

I'm close to at least 5 or 6 others, but don't quite meet their requirements, specifically:

1) the drunk tank was full so I made the cops find where I was supposed to be and take me home
2) I wasn't sober when i tipped the bartender
3) the expensive bottle wasn't apropos of nothing - i always made up an excuse like "I'm visting, so here this is" or "it was your birthday a while ago" or something
4) I've only watched barfly with one or two of my closest friends while getting loaded...or loaded enough that I didn't remember it so we had to watch it again: does it count if you watch it 5 times with the same friend?)
5) I decided to not buy the $2000 bottle of 100 year old Port. Yes, it was a moment of weakness.
6) I've never used "fishing trip" as an excuse: instead it's usually "camping"or "hunting" but often there is a body of water and usually a bonfire

Sure, you could view the above as "excuses", or you can just say that the rules need to be updated. Your call.

heh... and here I was POSITIVE you'd have the drunk tank one.

6.5. I counted wrong the first time.

I have a loooong way to go.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: January 25th, 2006 - 02:33 pm (Link)
really? only one? Which one?
[User Picture]From: akiramich Date: January 25th, 2006 - 02:38 am (Link)
I read the list and came up with 17. And the fact that Im on the 90 day countdown to my 40th birthday, Im looking at this as some sort of a manifesto.

Do you think you get bonus points for getting drunk with your mom instead of your dad?
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: January 25th, 2006 - 05:04 pm (Link)
I dunno about bonus points. I have drank with my dad but I'm a million times more likely to drink with my mom. I guess it just depends on the relationship.

I've got 9 so far.

And is one of the people in the pic pouring from a bottle of Laser? (That red and yellow-on-black label disturbs me to this day.)

all of us are... that was the 40 of choice at that particular party.

I feel like a drunk now

29, with only mild stretching of the truth.

2,3,4,5*,8,9,10*,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,
21,22*,23,24,25,27,28,30*,31,33,34*,36,39

5: They didn't take me to the drunk take, but I was forcibly taken by the police to the hospital and wasn't allowed to leave until morning after I wrecked my car drunk and got my DUI.

10: I was somewhat drunk, but I gave a $25 tip on a free drink in Vegas.

22: I've never counted, but we did make as many drinks as we could out of the Bartender's Bible in college (most of which were nasty).

30: We didn't even bother to use the fishing story, but I did get drunk at my lake house, bonfire and all.

34: It was more than half a paycheck, but it was from my summer job in college. I was working more than 30 hours per week, so I count it.

Re: I feel like a drunk now

I knew there was a reason I married you. :)

I only got 16. That's still higher than I thought, considering I've never finished an entire bottle of liquor.

16

I think I'm past the days where I want to do any of the others, except for 6. And since he's not dead yet, it'll have to wait.

I'm at 3.

3, 32, 36. I've leaned on friends to walk home after drinking. I can sing a drinking song or 3. And I've enjoyed absinthe.

I'm clearly far behind on embracing my inner alcoholic.

I know you got some Indian in you. Just sayin'....
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: January 25th, 2006 - 02:25 pm (Link)
you know... originally I thought you were going for a totally separate (and much more gay) joke... "You got a little indian in you?"
[User Picture]From: wooble Date: January 25th, 2006 - 08:12 pm (Link)
Umm, 4.

This list really isn't geared toward the introspective, quiet drunks.
[User Picture]From: wooble Date: January 25th, 2006 - 08:14 pm (Link)
Although re-reading the "100 different drinks one", if they count different beers and wines, I probably get that one as well.

I wasn't going to try to count the number of mixed drinks I've had/invented, but it's probably a bit less than 100.

Nine, +/- a couple: 4,8,14,16 (I should get 2 points for getting drunk with both parents),18 (Yeungling),22 (pretty sure...),23,24 (If you count going to a bar, having a few and coming back to work),36. #40 sounds like fun, and I wonder if you could pull this off by hitting the communion wine enough times...
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: January 26th, 2006 - 02:05 pm (Link)
You don't get a point for each parent. I didn't count it twice, you don't get to either. :-)

And I don't think the going to a bar and going back to work counts. 1) Lots of people go out for drinks at lunch. 2) I think a big part of the point of that one is sneaking the drinks at your desk while no one is looking. (or working in a place so slackful that no one cared).

I didn't think you'd be over 100 drinks. But hey, I can't say you aren't either. :-)
