I once worked for a publishing company that kept cases and cases of fairly good champagne in a storage closet and once a week we would all be called into the conference room to celebrate something with said champagne. Sometimes this got annoying -- no, really -- and we would try to get out of drinking champagne in the conference room. My boss there also got annoyed if you didn't drink with him at lunch. I spent a lot of time asleep under my desk.

I had two beers once at lunch with a colleague in a four person office when the boss and other coworker were gone for the weekend. I felt unbelievably useless for the remainder of the workday.

On the other hand, on occassion I've cracked open the laptop during the train ride home after a couple of after-work drinks and wondered the following morning when I'd learned to write with such passion.

My conclusion: only mix drink and work under circumstances where you will have the luxury of revising the following day.

Who drinks at work: anyone with "clients." A certain style of bookdealer, for example. Haven't you seen The Ninth Gate? A friend reports that the last time he shared evening cognac with a client, they got into a hoo-haw about price about something or other, and he wound up drunkenly waving another book about: "Five bucks! Five bucks! You want it?? Five bucks, you stupid!"

Never again.

so Eb didn't show up i guess, b/c no any further exciting developments reported
he's a shy recluse though with a great sense of humor, so it's understandable, but hopefully it was not me who like caused him to freeze out, to drop at the last moment etc sorry
people have different wavelengths, emotional or just activity, i for example liveskyped with my family and friends as usually in the morning or evening coz 12hrs time difference and sometimes we miss each other's moods, morning and evening is different, or there are for example monthly mood alterations, bipolar i think should not be characterized as a disorder, it's just a mainstream people's characteristic, to change periodically, and everybody experiences it to greater or lesser degrees
so it's it's like even surprising that people get each other occasionally in all this chaos of individual ups and downs

oh, that's great, sorry i'm like being nosy, great great i'm pleased, so let's see
controlling one's mood, without any drugs, is really challenging, i thought, but possible of course, diet caffeine exercise nail cutting netflix watching window shopping blog reading cake eating, like just one word or sentence or image and something is altered
but i think it's an example of unstability, if that small thing can alter something, but if it's altered to the positive side and if to choose only the positives then the net effect is like all positive and quantity becomes quality and without any medication
but then again, when all that positives are getting accumulated and after some time and amount it reaches the threshold and anything more can't evoke positiveness anymore and one relapses into the negative side, if one slides like gradually, one doesn't mention, if abruptly it's bipolar/ocd
really no use then of choosing one kind of stimulus only all the time, maybe should have different ones at the same time, +-,-+ just try to respond like adequately, some people have it completely mixed up and confused, so, have to have different stimuli all the time to get rid of high sensitivity or something and try to be always calm, a little bit dull existence then if all the time
so maybe it's like a blessing to have these alternate mood swings, just have to realize that negative is not really all negative but it's like a prerequisite of a better time and just hang in there

when i had it
so now you don't have it? can it be cured? i doubt it, without medications i mean
flat affect, anhedonia i think results from like excesses, in healthy people, or, i'm not sure, from disciplined conditioning?
the flatter affect i looked up can't find, it's like recklessness perhaps
when my niece was visiting me we went to the movie together and i envied to her reactions, she was laughing and stroking me at the especially funny places, very lively, open reactions, enjoyable
when i could just smile, i mean i enjoyed the comedy too, but with that restricted external display, it's like strange perhaps to look from the side

My bipolarity was just a noticible pattern, where sometimes I'd feel almost excessively happy and other times depressed within 24 hours. It wasn't diagnosed or treated. The nice feature is that I could go to be feeling pretty bad and wake up feeling cheerful. No more.

As a short hairy person I'm also bemused.

There was a point where I went over to the other side of the table to try to see what was going on with people I hadn't had a chance to talk to much, but they were pretty much all staring at their phones. Now I see that they must have been liveblogging.

I was serious about my kids coming up with better material. Overheard from the bathtub last night:

M: S, thank you for being knowledgeable. Do you know what knowledgeable means?
S: What?
M: It means your bottom is showing.

The twins' dialogue needs no comment. But we should go on with our lives.

Thanks to everyone who showed up for a great meetup. Sorry that I had to leave early. Cyrus, that was indeed me in the dark flannel shirt, and I think I saw you getting on the yellow line while I was waiting for the green line, so we must have left around the same time.

PGD's opening salvo to me was a remark about my facial hair reminding him of some Civil War dude. The conversation evolved into a rather amusing and detailed account by CharleyCarp of Civil War reënactors. And then we threw flaming couches off the roof.

Oh, and "flaming couches" was the name given to this lurker who showed up. Our apologies, good sir/madam.

We haven't yet determined the extent of non-deprecated blogger/lurker erotic potential, so I kept a part of my identity hidden.
