journal entry 294...

hm. so i guess this is what passes for happiness these days?

it's dark out, but warm. i have a new cat and a lamp that casts elegant shadows on the hardwood floors. i have a bottle of red wine and i drink it from a crystal glass someone regifted to me. i feel wise but not older. or do i feel old and unwise? i am still surprised by mundane and horrible things. i do not believe in the inherent goodness of others. i wouldn't go that far.

i've been alone for a year now and i like it this way. i thought when it started it would be a phase. a period of healing and then i'd go back to the way i was before. now i think i was always like this and before i was playing a part. and not very successfully obviously.

i don't even know what i'm talking about.

don't believe people when they tell you merlot is delicious and sideways was full of shit. merlot is boring and it makes you write the kind of shit that matters to no one.

you know what i miss? zima. do they even make that anymore? don't answer.

You know what's even better than Zima?

Jim Beam.

Yes.

Jim Beam.

Just fill up a glass with ice - really pack it in there. And then dump in the Beam. Let it sit for two hours. Take a sip. And another. Add more ice. Every time you take a sip, add more ice. That's what I do, anyway.

This is not very good advice, is it?
