So there is a bit of a silver lining to all this, the bad news of yesterday, and the bad news of last week. I stuck to the low alcohol regime. The desire to just swim away wasn't there.
I certainly had the idea of wanting a stiff belt, but when I actually got home, I could do without. So there's that.
In other news, I ordered more DVDs for sitcoms I haven't seen. Broad City is coming my way. Heard lots about it, looks fun.
My pleasures are becoming more and more mundane. My purpose in life is increasingly that of a consumer, not a participant. Blecch.
