drunkblog #2

12 Feb

Jack is –

  • pissed on Bell’s and Stella (judge, judge away)
  • wondering what to do in the next few months other than turn 21, look for a job and get incredibly drunk several times again
  • still high from Monday’s Vampire Weekend gig in Manchester – legendary
  • determined to read Infinite Jest before his birthday (mid-March)
  • pondering whether or not communicating with a person over the Internet whom you’ve never met in real life and offering them much-needed advice on traumatic events is creepy at all
  • asking himself why, in movies that concern the supernatural, does someone inevitably say ‘scientists are baffled’ as if that’s a revelation of some kind? Scientists are in a state of permanent bafflement. You will never hear a scientist say that he’s certain of something, because he knows how stupid that concept is in nature. Also, anyone who’s ever been friends with a scientist knows that they’re confused enough by the tiny minutia of life – think of the guy who looks for hours for the glasses that are on his head
  • debating whether to go for an old-fashioned, just-like-the-old-days bender tomorrow with all his friends from school
  • wondering why there seem to be few people from his area that are as ‘Tube-conscious as he is (with at least one exception)
  • considering shisha in the morning. The answer is indubitably yes. (‘Shisha’ may not be what you think it is – look it up.)
  • almost certain that he’s made at least one big spelling mistake. Well, he is pissed, after all. Thursdays, eh?

    I’ve often wondered myself why there aren’t more of us Northern ‘Tube conscious people. I think it could be because the 20% of us that actually even bother with electricity just see the internet as a source for all things cat humour related. Pleased to have found a fellow ‘Tube geek in you.
