Monsieur Baudelaire


I'm a wino. Which is to say I'm nothing more than a glorified alcoholic. Charles Baudelaire, of Les fleurs du mal fame, said it so eloquently when he mused that:

It is the hour to be drunken! To escape being the martyred slaves of time, be ceaselessly drunk. On wine, on poetry, or on virtue, as you wish...get drunk militantly. Just get drunk.

Spoken like a true wino.
