Yes, you do seem to have a problem with alcohol. You also sound incredibly self-centered, high-maintainence, and crazy. If the fat doesn't scare men away, getting to know the real you will for sure.

well, goodness. i was rather surprised to get this comment, but felt the need (in my crazy way) to respond.
first of all, the alcohol is what it is. i make no excuses and have no need for any.
as for self-centeredness, i would have to say i probably am. especially here, on my blog, where my intention is and has been to write about me and my life. at least i can say (likely with your approval) that i have been consistent in achieving that goal.
crazy and fat? hmm. these terms are certainly subjective. i like to think of them on a sliding scale, really. for my own part, i feel being self-aware (on both counts) is key. and is also why writing about them is funny.
however, i cannot abide by being called high-maintenance. i have no idea where or how you would get this idea. was it the mashed potatos on my shirt? my breezily elegant soup-eating? my fear of wearing heels because of how often i trip and fall? or was it more the emotional? like taking it to heart when a stranger on the bus smiles at me?
in the end, i just have to wonder why you would feel compelled to make this comment. pointing out all of the things i'm most concerned with and insecure about seems fairly base and pointless.
(unless your intention was simply to hurt my feelings...in which case i feel i should let you know that you have succeeded. well done you.)
