Blogging While Impaired



Every once in a while I’ll read a post that someone obviously wrote when they were drunk. These posts seem to disappear about ten hours later. I wonder how much alcohol it takes before some of those diatribes actually sound good, plausible and post worthy.

I, on the other hand am nearly always in control of my writing except for occasional errant spelling (shut up Moose) and misuse of grammar. Maybe my facts are out of order at times as well, but it’s the way I see things.

The other night I was writing while impaired. I wasn’t drunk or high, but I was sleepy. I fell asleep with my fingers on the key board. I awoke to find several pages of the letter “L” had been written during my brief nap. I’m glad that one didn’t auto post.

That would be... except for "occasionally" errant spelling unless you said "the" occasional errant misspelling but then that would be somewhat occasio anal on my part.

I'm thinking of starting a site called "Shitfaced Book" to help deal with the problem.

Ok, I can see Obamas administration forming up ranks of "Blogosphere Police" and sending them out on patrol. Anyone convicted of BUI would have their internet connection suspended for thirty days and they would have to spend one hundred hours installing Cat-5 cable for the poor. Even though I'm stone cold sober, I'd probably never be seen again...

That's the good thing about confessing to mental instability. When I blog random no-making-sense crap, people just politely smile and nod.

You should have posted it ...just changed the fonts, size, colors ... and titled it "What the L"

had it been "g" rather than "L", it would have been post worthy.

Guy - I took it down. Too much trouble. And I always laugh at those who say "this is the end, no more blogs" ... because they usually start back up within a month ... so I just pulled it cold turkey.

Ah, I'd love to be able to blog even slightly impaired(other than my obvious brain related shortfalls). Sadly for me, the current meds have temporarily suspended all enjoyment of my local ale or single-malt. Off to feel sorry for myself;)
