Hey, guys. Sorry for the short notice, but it’s looking like the drinkalongs are going to be taking a break for a bit.
Some stuff came up IRL and I won’t be able to participate. I mean, you can keep them going in my absence, I won’t mind AT ALL, but I won’t be able to organize anything.
I’ll post again when I have more information.
No time for anything. I might have to put drinkalongs on hold for a bit starting next week, but I’m not sure yet. I’ll keep you guys posted. Tonight should be fun, though.
In the spirit of honesty, I feel I should let you know that even though I was discussing this drinkalong with more than one person both last night and this morning, I’m so sleep deprived (up til 5 last night, woo?) I totally forgot I had to write this post until just about five minutes ago.
- Countdown Timer
- How to IRC instructions.
- I don’t have the wherewithal to come up with rules. I think I’ll drink for Fourth Wall Breakage and “Cassandra.” You make up your own shit, but don’t die cos I’m not responsible.
Ugh, you guys, this week. The Insomnia Monster hit me hard, and I’ve been averaging two hours of sleep if I’m lucky. I’ve been decidedly anti-social, but I’m looking forward to tonight so I can maybe not be a total bitchface to people.
See you tonight!
A few things before I get into the deets about this week’s drinkalong.
Some of you are aware of the pile of shit my life has been this year. Things are looking a little better now, though, I feel like I can actually breathe for the first time in several months. However, with that breathing room comes the news that we’ll be moving again, probably before the end of the year. It’s really a good thing this time, though, so I don’t need any moving sympathy. We’ll be back on EST, so there may be some adjustment to drinkalong times (maybe earlier like they used to be? not sure) coming up.
Also, since I don’t have a concrete date set yet for the move, I don’t know which drinkalongs I might have to miss (if any at all), but I’d really like it if you guys kept at it, even if I can’t make it. I don’t necessarily want to postpone/cancel anything when I just fucking figured out the schedule for most of the rest of the year.
Okay, the next thing…most of you followed that blog I used to have, and maybe you remember a post I wrote in April about a dear friend who was battling cancer. Although in June things were looking promising, her situation deteriorated rapidly over the last few weeks. and it’s with an incredibly heavy heart that I tell you that Alethea passed away very early yesterday morning (technically Thursday night on the west coast, but I think she’d prefer to think of it as happening on Hallowe’en in the eastern time zones, that’s a very Alie thing to do).
Tonight’s drinkalong is for her. We talked a lot about her trying to make one (most especially during HughesFest), but it never happened. Tonight I raise my drink to her and the memory of her laughter.
