Fuck, you too? I swear that song must be cursed. Shark, friend, girlfriend or... bit of a story there as well; that fucking song. Regrettably, It is catchy enough that it pops into my head sometimes though.

That mac lethal was a new one to me. I can see having fun with that

It's almost certainly not anything you'd expect. Spoilered for length and possible (slightly) unsettling/definitely not uplifting content:
Spoiler: show
A few years ago, my brother and my mom got in a huge argument about something (which happens fairly often) and he stormed out in a huff to meet (I assume) some of his friends somewhere. At some time after 4 AM, he came stumbling in, alternately bellowing that song (he only knew the first verse, but didn’t let that stop him) and throwing up. Once my mom woke up, there was a lot more yelling.

The next morning, as I was drifting in and out of consciousness, the two of them were talking about what had happened when he went out. A few minutes after it seemed like the conversation ended, I heard my brother let out a weird, stressed-sounding noise (for lack of a better way to describe it), my mom called his name a few times, and a few seconds later she was on the phone frantically telling a 911 operator, “my son is having a seizure,” at which point I immediately was awake. We’re *pretty* sure it wasn't drug-related.

Did I mention the second day was Thanksgiving? Because yeah...

My brother was planning a Florida/Caribbean themed barbecue for a while, so naturally it started to rain today, right before people got here for it. On the other hand, conch fritters are awesome.

Note to self: Blackberry brandy and key lime-flavored sparkling water go surprisingly well together.

That is one of those things that I want to try but probably won't. :(

I have decided today, since I don't have to do anything, to day drink and sit by a backyard fire. It's not particularly cold or anything but campfire is fun and within wifi range! Probably also going to cook food over it. Something about burning wood to heat food up seems to make it better.

I’m at my dad’s house, watching the Super Bowl commercials (and some football game in between), eating hot dogs, and drinking beer. I don’t think they’ve been that great so far.

There's a full bar directly across the street from me now, and they have good food, so I can eat and drink at the same time! It used to be that I could go across the street and just drink beer (which I'm not the biggest fan of), or go across the street and down a block (in different directions, of course) to go to a bar or eat, but this is so much better! When I say this place is across the street, I mean that if I keep going straight across the street after walking down my driveway then I'm there!

It took a LOT of editing to write this coherently after having a Long Island Iced Tea!

I can't find the thread where I originally planned to post this. It's an amazing trivia coincidence about two celebrities going to school together. I blame my exciting experiment to see if I can get properly drunk while drinking alone, rather than just sipping neat spirits like some kind of intellectual sophisticate. After two thirds of the remaining one third of a bottle of gin, plus this outstanding Bloody Mary I made for myself, I'm only about eight units in (do Americans count alcohol units? A shot is usually one unit, a pint of beer is two units, and theoretically, a full litre of neat ethanol is 100 units), and so I am only impaired emotionally at time of writing, but this fact is so cool, you guys!!!!!!!!

When Lin-Manuel Miranda, the Hamilton guy, was at school, he got bullied by another kid in his class, who went on to become notoriously controversial rapper Immortal Technique. This is honestly one of my favourite trivia facts about celebrities.
