I check out the SealPoet's website about once a week, to see what he's up to.

It's not the same as finding him here in the morning to visit with, but it's still nice.

Atook'a had a harbour seal,
We loved it half to death...

Do ya think it was our breath?!

Atook'a had a harbour seal,
In ways we wish it hadn't,
Cos ever since it went away
We've felt so very sadden'd.

Daddy had a harbor seal
But then daddy moved off site
And took the seal away with him
To fly a solo flight

Daddy had a harbour seal,
He hoped that it would fly,
But since it hadn't any wings....
Well, watching made me cry...

Daddy had a harbor seal
Who swam just like he walked
He would have been a hopeless sort
Had he never learnt to talk.

Thanks, PDog...

Daddy had a harbor seal
They both loved solo flying
We'd really love a visit from them
And our wishes will keep trying.

So, since a digression thread has been newly reopened, I'll post here rather than start a new topic. Not a big fan of new topics, anywho.

*****

I just fixed myself a double gin-and-tonic. Bombay Sapphire gin, even, making me yuppie scum, but that's neither here nor there. The point is that I'm drinking in front of the tube with some music running (Calexico, at the moment -- very mellow and highly recommended) and, of course, the 'puter on, by myself, and having a wee drinkie-poo.

According to the definitions of the American medical community and the more responsible and restrained corners of my culture, I am an alcoholic. Which is to say, I've more days with drink than without, I average more than two alcoholic beverages per day, yada yada yada. It's not something that worries me terribly. I come from a long line of high-functioning drinkers, and the only totally abstaining grandparent died more decrepit and insane and bitter and hateful than the rest of them.

Anyway, here's a video clip I think is damned funny.

Damned funny.

I once saw Peter O'Toole in a play about a British journalist (and drunk) called "Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell". I most remember his comment about drunks whose favorite tipple is white wine having "breath that smells like drains" which is, of course, so true that it's hardly worth mentioning <grins>.

I soak Thompson raisins in Bombay Sapphire gin and eat 8 before bed every night. This is apparently a homeopathic remedy for arthritis. I am not an alcoholic. (Am I?)

You're not alcoholic, you're arthritic (obviously, if you partake of the arthritic's treatment). Not a particularly proud tradition, I'm afraid, but it can get you excused from certain onerous menial tasks.

Thanks to the homeopathic remedy I'm not arthritic either (just afraid to stop taking the "cure" Very Happy )

No need to unmask clinical symptoms. Keep it up.




I met a guy years ago -- a German bus driver -- who got be to drink -- where? Frankfurt? I don't know -- a few glasses of grappa with raisins therein. Foul stuff, but an interesting evening.

(But I like good grappa now. Right place at the wrong time, I suspect....)

As 'Peter O'Toole' put it so aptly, he never grappled with interns and I'm quite certain he nevva, evva grappled with grappa. No wino he.
