Here (Doesn't) Come A Regular

Just noticed that I have been sober for over a month. That's not by design, it's just that I haven't had any time to tie one on. Fatherhood used to be so easy before the kiddies got hep to Dad's red eyes. Darn those "rat on your folks" lessons they get in school. Mrs. Nomad and I haven't even gotten to see this yet. Been going to alot of baseball games lately. And you can't get drunk at baseball games, since beers are 9 bucks each. And it's bad beer too.
So, it's been the relatively straight and narrow, since Nazz jr and Nazzette jr NEVER GO TO BED! I even had a dream last nite that I was at some Heavy Metal fest and I got busted for getting wasted. When you can't even get high in your dreams, that's just messed up.

Well, here's Planet Unicorn. Why? I don't know. He's on third base.

Kelly Clarkson - Sober
Crucial Youth - I'm Straight
Minor Threat - Straight Edge
The Stranglers - Straighten Out
George Thorogood - If You Don't Start Drinkin' (I'm Gonna Leave)

Ugh. Three weeks ago I spent an offensive chunk of a week's salary on Very bad beer at Yankee stadium. Today, wisely no beer, but a good twenty bucks on what seems to have been exclusively french fries. I don't think I'll ever come out a winner at Yankee stadium.

Planet Unicorn. Haha, I just read the character bios. They all like to have fun.

Crucial Youth doing a Modern Lover's cover. I always wrote them off as a bunch of drunks making fun of SxE/ Posi-Core. I am a little impressed.

Hey now! My kids won't sleep either, what is up with that? I hear you on the sober parenting thing, too. Sigh. For me it started with pregnancy, no more bongs for me!

So for one crappy beer at Shea you can buy a whole crappy 6-pack at the grocery or liquor store... and for one hot dog you can buy a whole package of 8 and probably buns, too? That's just insane. I was thinkin it would be good to get high before goin to the game but then you'd end up spending more on food than usual. Can't win either way!

No bongs or pot for me anyway... weird 'cause I always told myself that no way would this hippie ever get a job where they drug test... ahhh but I did... and so I'm officially retired from that life. But a couple times a month or so the pints of Guinness or Alaskan Stout are just callin me to come enjoy them... and while I try to resist, I always end up sayin "Thanks mr. bartender dude."

Oh and thanks for the Kelly Clarkson download. She just rules, doesn't she?!?!

Wait... I was thinking of Kelly from Married With Children. Nevermind.

When I found out my parents get high (I was thirteen and found a massive amount of weed in the garage), I was heart-broken. But growing up, I quickly realized pot is probably the best thing to do, in terms of mind numbing things you can do to yourself. And I never liked smoking weed. Different strokes, eh?

If you raise your kids right, and don't let school influence them TOO much, they'll have the same views.

It's been a week alcohol-free for me since I spent a good part of last weekend sweating out a hangover.

I've got a gut feeling (a liver feeling?) that may end tomorrow night, though!
