Sep. 2nd, 2009 | 11:14 pm

i've created a new LJ account, because i'd like to journal more frequently, but need to divorce myself from the former me, as i am transitioning into a new beginning.

please leave me your LJ user name so i can add you as a "friend" under my new account.

best. superbowl. ever

Feb. 8th, 2009 | 12:58 pm

so i was trying to post pictures from my super awesome superbowl party up in the hills (of sherman oaks) but it's been so long since i've posted pictures on this thing that i seen to be having trouble. so just follow this link. (check out that TV! and the view from the house!!)


most of you are on facebook and have had the opportunity to see these pictures but i figured i'd post them here too. i believe i exhibited every single emotion for a human being to possibly exhibit.

you know, three years ago i told god that if the steelers won the superbowl, i'd quit drinking. and i did (didn't realize it was going to take me a year and a half). now, almost 19 months sober i have nothing to bargain with. i just can't stand the thought of possibly losing the AFC championship to BALTIMORE. god i hate baltimore. you can take the team outta cleveland but you can't take the shit outta baltimore!

natalie: i'm allergic to your mom's face.

alcoholism is a disease of insanity...

Aug. 17th, 2008 | 05:41 pm
music: "prisoner of society" the living end

so it occurred to me the other day as i was working on my 4th step , that i went so far as to get diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder, somehow get myself accepted into a study to pay me $50 a week to test the effects of an experimental anti-epileptic drug on anxiety JUST SO I COULD AVOID MYSELF COMING TO TERMS WITH THE FACT THAT I STARTED WAKING UP IN THE MORNING WITH THE SHAKES. it was more important for me to be mentally ill than to admit my alcoholism had progressed to the point where i was waking up in the mornings in severe withdrawal.

that, my friends, is insane.
