★ Ninety Nine Bottles of Beer

I've noticed a trend. I've been having my fair share of alcohol for the past 4 weeks. Whether it's going out on the weekends, having a cold one with my dinner, or throwing back a couple with the roommates, it seems like we go through a 12 pack at least once a week. Coupled with our little get togethers here at Mango, we always seem to have alcohol readily available. Now, I don't think I'm an alcoholic, but when is too much, too much? I find myself constantly clearing my desk of empty beer bottles and cans. Right now, I have 4 empty containers of alcohol on my desk and I cleared off at least 6 from the past week. Maybe it's the OC lifestyle rubbing off on us.

It's the night before the start of another work week and I still can't believe how fast time moves when you work full time. Here we are thinking about turkey dinners and Christmas lists. We're pretty much in the final stretch of the year. I have no doubt that the New Year will show up at my front door in no time. Even though I'm somewhat dreading this part of the year, I have a couple things to look forward to. A couple Vegas trips and another trip to the Motherland will help take my mind off the stress that accompanies this time of the year. The end of 2005 is the finish line for this insane year I've had. It's time to dig down...
