Sad stories indeed. I think part of the problem is awareness. Because alcohol is the legally government sanctioned drug they never call it a drug. Which I find weird. Alcohol is a hard drug and a poison and many people seem oblivious to the fact. They also underestimate it. Bigly. One thing (speaking from personal experience) I never understood is how some people change from a reasonable easy-going person into a raging bull after a few drinks. It's frightening to see and a reason I always avoided it when younger. (I started drinking when I was 30+)

If I drink I just get happy and more talkative. I'm sure it is obvious on here. Even when inebriated it's still the same me. I don't get angry, difficult or touchy-feely in an inappropriate way. I think my moral compass might play a small part but it's not the person I can be, even on a bad day. I don't get drunk any more but by most standards my alcohol consumption is near the top of the charts. (12 pints of beer a day, spread over the day, every day) I don't slur, I don't stagger and I don't interfere with people.

I dream of the day I don't drink every day but my will is not very strong at the moment. I'm kinda frightened to check my email to see what the rental company said but I've come to the realisation I have to get out of this building. My dreams have turned scary and I wake up shaking and sweating. Being homeless means I will have no registered address and without my welfare will stop. I didn't realise that.

As for birthdays I would never buy someone alcohol or any other drug for that matter. It's a consumable "present" that is quickly gone. Present = past. Or passed. Hehe

LOL! Thank you.
I must admit I had to laugh at your booby dentist story. That's one reason I hated going to hairdressers because sometimes I would feel strange boobies and it really does make me uncomfortable. Plus all the stupid talk and questions.

"So, where are you going on holiday?"

"I can't afford a holiday."

"Oh, er, what are you going to do this weekend, going anywhere nice?"

"I can't go to nice places, no money."

"Oh...uh...."

Conversation killer. Please my friend, drink less. You don't have to stop but try to avoid the drunken states. Love ya!

I think that no one cares but i will post a few lines about punk.

I like the attitude. The rebel aspect and the attitude. But some punks get SO REAL "This band is a sellout because they had a gas station gig and sold 17 tickets" i like skate/pop/punkrock kinda punk. But... it is not "real punk" i don't mind, i like it nevertheless.

Hi Sheddites!

Only time for a short post at the moment. I've been compiling a list of the entries for the current collaborative story. Here is what I have so far.

I included WalkInSilence's post about Rock, although I was not sure if it was actually part of the story thread.
Mike Stivic I did not include your poems, although they were excellent! They did not seem to directly relate to the story thread.

If I'm wrong on either of those accounts 1) Please forgive me, and 2) let me know & I'll update the list!

WalkInSilence's post does indeed belong to the story (imho!) but I stand in awe and ore at how you just did what you just did extracting and compiling it all into one list.

You is either magic, or have some crazy woo joo mojo computer skills. (Maybe you just clicked through the last 50 or so pages but that costs time and difficulty!) Either way, my (and I'm sure other Sheddite residents) humble and wide-eyed thanks.

Respect!

Lol ... I feel the same about conversation with hair dressers. I’ve even politely asked them if it’s ok to skip the conversation as I am not in a talkative mood. They don’t seem to mind when I ask. Sometimes I think they are almost relieved. They probably feel they have to converse.

The naughty boy in me must ask, do they also press their boobies (or manly parts possibly!) into your body while cutting?


So I dared to open my email, rental company said they understood that it would be better for one of us to move out of the building. So I'm gonna move. I have a friend or two I can possibly ask to borrow a coupla hundred dollars to help me, repaid quickly. I hope to move (I hate moving but most stuff is in boxes and bags still, all ready to go!) within a few weeks. Bye bye psycho!

The nutcase just knocked on my door! ROFL "Did I steal some weight lifting equipment he apparently left accidentally outside his room today?" I asked him what the hell he was talking about and then told him no. He stood there smiling. I told him I was leaving and invited him into my room to check. He didn't know what to say. Good!

I don't lie, I don't steal. Ever. He stood there smiling. Maybe someone else took it but it wudn't me. Me and weight-lifting equipment do not mix unless I am just looking at it. I weigh 140lbs (65 kgs) on a good day. I don't have many good days these days.

To the future! It can't be worse than what it is here. I appear to be a magnet for crazy people but I refuse to cut my hair or change my person.

Is the rental company going to provide you with a new place ? Really hope so!
That guy is borderline sociopath if you ask me . I pity the poor person who moves into your room next.

Lol .. no , but I did quit going to this one male hairdresser because he was always spewing sexual innuendos. Always telling me how “ sexy” I looked after a cut. I told him straight up that I didn’t get my hair cut to look sexy... I just wanted to look nice and groomed.

There were other things he said as well.. and long story short.. he no longer cuts my hair ! I don’t even go to that salon anymore.

Male hairdressers are often (possibly not always) homosexuals. Nothing wrong with that at all and maybe he was just trying to make you feel/look good. My Dad had a cousin who had his own hair-dressing business. He was gay and open, he lived with Dennis. I have nothing against gay people.
As long as your hair looks good!


ETA Yes, I get a new place.
Outside of Rotterdam. Just far enough, hopefully.

This guy was married .. not gay.. and even if he was .. his behaviour was totally unprofessional. He thought telling me I look sexy was what brought him the generous tip I usually give. He was dead wrong ! It was also nauseating to watch him flirt with his co workers, and spew sexual innuendos at them as well.

So... even if he was gay ( which he wasn’t) .. his behaviour was way out of line, so don’t give him a pass.

There's no such thing as a free pass. I hear you.


ETA And flirting with employees is a no no.
Or customers.

Well, I am a computer programmer in real life. Does that count?

It was a lot of clicking, copying, and pasting, but that's about it. The BBCode is elementary for the URLs.

Hello to whoever is around.

Shep, glad I could help get you started with the list and that you found the rest while I was out. Good job Hun! Thank you!

Light,I am soooo happy to hear you are moving! So very happy! I'm sipping some cabernet. I don't drink to get to drunk, though last Summer at a wedding, I was drunk for the first time in years. Not enough to get sick or act like an idiot or anything. I was up and dancing and more sociable than ever. I'm outgoing anyway, but was even more so. These days two drinks are usually my limit, sometime more if I'm celebrating, but not much more as I couldn't handle it. lol I don't usually have booze in the house so I am really enjoying the wine for now.

Fin, I love your music. I always get excited when you post some music I haven't heard before. I especially loved the first vid you shared!


Shey and Swanne, Hello!!!!! And a fond hello to anyone lurking about!

You have no idea how relieved I am. I don't mind a new location, I fit in badly everywhere but always adjust myself to circumstance and location. I had to laugh at your wedding crazy girl dance story though.

"Ma...Ma...? Who's that crazy lady dancing like a...?

"Shhh!..."


Alcohol makes everyone more outgoing and that is not a bad thing on certain occasions. I am by nature an introvert. Uncertainties and all.

I remember the old days. One beer (330 ml, not a pint, that is 454 ml) gave me a buzz. A real buzz.

No matter how much I drink I do know one thing despite all my best intentions. White people (with the exception of trained dancers or homosexuals) cannot dance. At all. Perhaps the ladies are the exception to the rule.

LOL! Oh yes, white ladies can dance. Trust me. Well these days, I'm not the dancer I used to be, but...

I have always been great with introverts and could bring them out of their shell.

It was in my youth that I didn't know my limits with drinking and I would get so bombed then sick. You know when you are praying to the porcelain God and swearing you'll never drink again and begging the room to stop spinning. Ahaha!
