    Re: RCMC #127: One lumps or two?

    He's putting me to work lol. I went to see him right before Christmas and made scones. He gave some to his friends as little gifts, and apparently everyone has placed orders. So I'm baking my buns off, and (technically) tonight I'm going to his AA meeting to give him his 14 year chip. It's a big deal to him, so I'm doing it. Me being the age I am, and the fact I enjoy drinking, I find AA meetings boring, but hey, it's not about me.

    Re: RCMC #127: One lumps or two?

    what!? 14 years is a massive accomplishment. I don't think my dad has ever lasted more than one. wow, good for him.

    and yeah I feel you, AA meetings are terribly boring and contain way too much religion for my taste. I haven't been to one since my mom and dad split up though.

    I'm sure the scones will be delicious. I actually bought myself some treats today so I can say that without envy! :P

    Nice!

    Yeah, my dad used to drink to the point he was violent. So 14 years ago, I asked him not to drink at my birthday party and he quit drinking altogether. That's the other reason he wants me to give him the chip. I used to go to the new years eve parties they have and all I could think the entire time was how much I could use a drink and how some of the people there were probably hilarious when they drank. Of course at the time, I wasn't old enough to be drinking. All I knew is I was kinda bored and didn't enjoy singing Amazing Grace at midnight.

    Re: RCMC #127: One lumps or two?

    that's fantastic that he was able to turn it around and stick with it for so long. I used to write little notes to my dad when I was young but they never really worked. we're more or less estranged at the moment. I've assumed he was sober since he's really into church stuff and goes to AA but last time I saw him over christmas, he was drunk. it got pretty ugly. I feel so sad for my stepmom and brother who have to deal with that now.

    I never went to AA New Years parties though. lol. mostly it was just sitting in a classroom, listening to a guy lecture for two hours about stuff. this was actually the topic of my college application essay, now that I think about it.

    Amanda - Great to hear that your dad has earned his 14 year chip! That's amazing!

    Alcoholism is awful. I see the effects of it every day in and out of work. It just tears people apart in every aspect of their lives, and their loved ones... ugh. It's heart breaking.

    On that note... I would love a rum runner right now.

    Anyway! Have a safe drive!!

    Kev - what kind of treats did you buy? Any last minute assignments tonight?

    The perks of graveyard shift! Appropriately named, lately. We've been having codes far too often the past few nights.

    Re: RCMC #127: One lumps or two?

    ^ just a few more hours till seven days of relaxation and then it starts all over! :P



    I just watched the Tokyo DisneySea version of Fantasmic on youtube. it's like the CA version + World of Color on steroids. though I still prefer the original. :P

    I'll probably get over my voyeuristic Disney youtube phase pretty soon. but for now I'm going to go to bed. goodnight!

    Re: RCMC #127: One lumps or two?

    I tried checking out a couple POV videos last night after you mentioned it, I couldn't stand the noise! Guess I'll stick to my Disneyland ride soundtrack.

    Yes... Just over 2 more hours!!

    Good night!

    I love it! Lots to read this morning.

    I could comment on a lot, but I got things to do, and places to be.
