You know what? I'm kind of tired hearing myself bitch all the time about how 2008 has sucked. It's like some higher power just wants me to be miserable this year. Going from alcoholic inducing awful to shoot myself in the head awful.
I've been reading a lot. Neal Rosenthal's memoirs, the book on those fake Jeffersonian bottles of Lafitte, and a book on Champagne. They're all fantastic books, but they just remind me how little wine I've been drinking recently. In 2 months, I've drank 3 bottles. That's ridiculous.
There's this damn kid in my neighbourhood who rides around on one of those motorized scooters. Only today, it's not a scooter. It's one of those mini-bikes. So unbelievably noisy and loud. I want to take a baseball bat to his head, and then go after his idiot of a father who got him the damn thing in the first place. Wow, I'm in a foul mood.
Had some Suntory whiskey the other night. The Japanese make a fantastic whiskey. Non-offensive at the least, which I suppose is their goal. I want to write a bit more about it later.
It's almost October, so I guess it means that it's time to shave my head again. What do you think? I shaved it last year, just before a friend's birthday. I'm told that it'll give the wrong impression, that it doesn't look 'professional'. Honestly, I don't give a f*ck, but a haircut costs money, and that's what's stopping me at the moment.
