Default I love the internets!

No but for reals - I woke up this morning with a slight hangover, on account of drinking a bottle of wine while watching the debate. I'm sorry, but I just can NOT watch the Shrub sober.

Anyway, you know that icky feeling when you had a bit too much to drink, not enough so that you feel so crappy you can justify staying in bed, but just enough to make you feel like a bag of ass while you go about your Saturday morning household chores.

And then, I logged on here and immediately received therapeutic relief - the comic kind, laughing my ass off at Goliath - and feeling empathy for liv, hoping her brain does not actually explode on account of the contents of his posts. A sense of not being alone in the world while reading the 2nd presidential debate thread. Etc., etc.

You guys rule! I love the internets, and all of you too. :hugs:

I really appreciate you thinking of my poor, battered OCD even when hungover. My skull remains intact for now, thank you, but I make no guarantees.

Yup, the internets rule, and so do you. :glomp2:

I doubt the shrub realizes it, but "the internets" is technically correct.

Hmm. "The Internets" isn't, but "The internets" is. But I suspect he meant the proper noun.

Note that I was careful to use a lower case "i".

I indistinctly remember two: Friday night and Thursday night.

Those were the last nights, weren't they?

Just to show that I'm all about the internets love, here's something for last night's drunks.

:chug: :smokingj: :fastfood: :choccake: :hungover: :hangover:

Notice the nice, tidy progression of substance abuse. Isn't organization wonderful? Doesn't it make you feel good inside? It's just so soothing, particularly after the savagery of random letters that assaulted me overnight.

:pleased:

:yup:

I might need to start drinking again though, after spending the last few hours reading a Thread That Shall Not Be Named. :nuke:

I feel like such a rube for not even having been aware of it. But I suppose that makes my custom title even truer than I thought. :blush:

*wanders off to find liquor*

Sounds like everyone is enjoying mixed drinks with their mixed messages. Or is it a double for the double talk?

And don't forget Polish Vodka!

Awww...glad to be of service. :) :glomp2:

I don't even remember writing half of those posts, and I don't know what some of them are saying (the one that's in the random quotes list is a good example of that). But I think my favorite was the one when I was trying to say "Hey, posting while drunk is hard work! HAH! I CAN BE THE PRESIDENT!!" :D

I love the internets, too. If it wasn't for the internets I wouldn't have a friend in every major city and I'd have to *gulp* pay for a hotel when I felt like travelling. The Horror! :yikes:

Midwest, huh? *starts checking rates at expedia*
