Like I wrote yesterday, everything seems like a bad idea to me lately
This entry right here is a perfect example. I should not be writing this. There is no good that can come from writing this. It's not only a no-win situation, it's a lose-lose situation. Writing this entry will only make things worse than they already are.
Friday night sucked. I got this damn wild hair up my ass to go over to Louisville and check out this big Derby party they were having at Fourth Street Live.
That was a stupid idea.
As near as I could tell, there was exactly one seat in the entire complex. That seat was, fortunately, at the bar at the Hard Rock. So I sat there and had a BBC Alt (362) and talked very briefly to CoolHairGirl. But she was busy, so I didn't stick around. Nobody I knew was at The Pub, plus there were no seats available there, so I left and went to Rich O's.
I was in a shitty mood. I should have just stayed home.
But what I did instead was sit on the sofa for about ten seconds. Then people tried to talk to me so I moved to the island. I had a couple pints of a new beer:
Brooklyn Brown Ale (40)
(draft) Almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of malts, and not much else. Same for the flavor. No bitterness. I liked it.So that was okay I guess. WomanRepellant joined me for a bit, and he was in a shitty mood too, so we got along okay.
Saturday sucked. I spent the entire day feeling worse than I'd felt in months. Like the absence which had been my constant companion, like it had suddenly decided to turn on me. It became a giant hand which closed around my throat and squeezed as hard as it could.
Then I walked into Rich O's. I'd planned to just sit at the bar and be a hermit for a while. I was looking forward to it actually. So I walked straight through the door and straight to the bar. I ordered a Delirium Tremens (940).
Then I heard a voice.
I turned around, and there was LaptopGirl. Sitting with her friends BigWheelGirl and WeatherGirl.
She waved back. I heard her say the word awkward to her friends.
And that was it. I wasn't invited over to join them, and I certainly wasn't going to impose myself on them.
So I sat at the fucking bar like a weirdo and watched my hands shake away every bit of progress I've made since last Summer.
Then I had another Tremens (957).
Then I went home (waved goodbye, got a wave back) and sat on my swing, and had a couple bottles of O'Fallon Smoked Porter (72).
Then I went to bed and stared at my ceiling until this afternoon when it was time to get ready for this family reunion thingy at my sister's house.
While there, I had four yummy bottles of Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Weizen (171). Then I came home and wrote this crap of an entry.
