Having a life

On most days of the week I make a real effort to eat healthily, exercise and avoid alcohol. Occasionally, however, I feel the need to have a life. This evening, therefore, I have drunk an entire bottle of rather nice dry Californian white while watching the frankly gorgeous Lee Meade prancing around in a tight tshirt, winning Any Dream Will Do. It was a most fantastic way to spend Saturday night. Sometimes I have to remember that you only live once, and that one night on the wine won't kill you and will make you happy after a week in a boring job that takes up far too much valuable time. Wine, Dr Who and Joseph equals happy (and slightly sloshed) Sarah.

Avoid alcohol!! Steady on! There's no point in this life in leaving a pretty corpse when it will burn just the same as an ugly one!

Interesting. I wasn't aware that being a few pounds overweight automatically led to being considered ugly, but hey, what do I know. Thanks very much for that confidence boost, it's really helped...

I wasn't aware I'd said that. I thought I was merely contrasting (albeit in a somewhat exaggerated tongue-in-cheek fashion) the general point of pursuing a pure, ridiculously well behaved and managed, but ultimately boring, life, as opposed to one of wild hedonistic excess when it all ends the same way, thereby agreeing with your original statement that it is important to remember that, "you only live once." Must be these dodgy German keyboards where all the words mean different things than you think...

Ok, I probably did know you didn't mean that. I seem to have been having irrational rage issues this morning. Sorry...Must learn to think before typing!
