I like to partake with the best of 'em, but is it just me or does that seem a little… wearying and sad?

That grapefruit will give you heartburn.

Otherwise, sounds about right.


I like the 6pm “take the edge off the day”.


He’d be fucked in Papsweb fat club though

Well you try it…AND live in the real world. :lou_eyes_to_sky:

Is “fettuccine Alfredo” only legal between consenting adults?


Chartreuse?? You know someone has a booze problem when they choose to drink that shite.

Perhaps we should try this diet/lifestyle as part of our weight loss campaign? Although I think if I tried it I would be dead inside of a week.

You need to build up slowly - I would suggest not doing the coffee and the carrot cake to begin with.


As someone with a ‘creative’ job. I can confirm this is how we go about our day-to-days lives.

Right, Lou?


When I was an art college my tutor did tell me I needed to loosen up my drawing style and recommended smoking some weed. It’s been down hill since then.

Would have been interesting to get the real reasons, apart from the obvious, for that regime.

“the true voice of Thompson is revealed to be that of American moralist … one who often makes himself ugly to expose the ugliness he sees around him.” Great deal of self loathing in there, but fair to say he exposed a lot of the seedier and darker side of the American dream
