How To Tell If You’re Drunk.

In this fast-paced word of venti lattes and iphones and google and facebook and Cee Lo Green it’s easy to get overwhelmed and sometimes we have to ask ourselves, “Wait, am I drunk?” Here’s a handy guide for when you’re just not sure:

— You have an overwhelming urge to text everyone you know.

— If someone walks in on you peeing in the bathroom you just smile, wave, and say, “HELLO! WELCOME TO MY TOILET ROOM!”

— You freak out if the bartender takes a smoking break.

— You ask people to guess how old you are.

— You can go hours with a reduced vocabulary of “YEEEEAAHHH!”, “WHOOOOOO!” and loud high-fives.

— It suddenly seems like the perfect time to talk about your screenplay.

— You have a spirited conversation with five people about Goldeneye for N64. (“Facility is the best level!!!!!”)

— Tears for Fears actually inspires tears and fears.

— You find yourself thinking, “Holy shit I would love to hear some Billy Joel right now.”

— Cheese fries.

— “Hey, seriously though, why isn’t that guy talking to me? I mean I don’t care I just want to know. Really, what the fuck is his problem? Where did he go? Why isn’t he talking to me? No, fuck him! Fuck him! I’m awesome! I’m the best person here! I have the best hair!”

— Everyone looks like someone famous. But the famous people look ugly.

— You look at your boyfriend and think, “There is no way I am marrying this man if he doesn’t want to have a bouncy castle at the reception.”

— Then you tell him.

— Then you act like you were joking.

— Then he can tell that you weren’t joking and you start crying.

— 6 minute remixes of Katy Perry songs are awesome.

— You lost your lip gloss and you’re not even mad.

— You say, “I’m not drunk, I swear.”

Basically if you’re not sure if you’re drunk, you’re probably drunk.

      Probably because your friends are like me. I am your friend. You ain’t never had a friend like me. Spoiler alert: the Genie sings a song titled “Friend Like Me” in Aladdin. Sorry!!!!!

    “You ask people to guess how old you are.” — Haha, guilty as charged. The guy guessed 19, I TURN TWENTYSEVEN IN THREE WEEKS. Obviously I wasn’t the only one drunk there but I didn’t really have time to take that in ’cause I was busy with internally going “YEEEEAAHHH!”, “WHOOOOOO!” and having my left cerebral hemisphere repeatedly high-five my right. I felt like I’d won something, ahhh! (*cough*YOUTH*cough*) I can’t wait to be drunk again!

    According to this I’ve never been drunk… unless I am actually drunk all the time because I am always jonesing for some Billy Joel. Chalk it up to being from Long Island.

    One to add:
    – You seriously do have trouble controlling the VOLUME of you VOICE.

    this is beyond amazing, and sums me up at a bar to perfection. except i have this recent habit of quoting (or rather screaming with emphatic hand gestures) Oprah. ex: letting everyone know they’re going to Australia.

AND THIS IS WHY IM ALWAYS THE DD!! why would i ever wanna be that drunk?!

    Brilliant. The high five one and the screenplay one were my personal favorites. If you’re in LA, I’d like to add that you think it’s the best idea EVER to put on sunglasses and try to sneak into the Chateau Marmont.

    Drunk dialing, texting, emailing, swearing, smoking (anything), friendliness towards anything or anyone, cooking or eating greasy food, drinking more, staying up until 3-5AM, only getting in your car to drive for two things – more BAC (beer and cigarettes), extreme horniness, loneliness, and thought patterns. When you learn to drink alone, you’ve perfected the drunk lifestyle, and you know it’s finally time to get help, or better yet, help yourself.

    This was amazing!! I cook about everyday and for lots of family parties and this really was a hit!! Wow bobby flay! I had tried Ina Garten roasted shrimp orzo salad. It was not that good. So, this recipe being very similar I was nervous to make it. I used seedless cucumbers and peeled the skin off, easier to eat. I do love the grape tomatoes, it better than dicing a whole tomato. It just fits with this dish perfect. I bought a brick of feta and just crumbled it by hand, but made it very tiny pieces, no chunks. I dislike feta, but man, in this dish it rocks!! I marinated the shrimp in evoo, lemon juice, kosher salt and pepper for about an hour. Grilled them. Let them cool completely, and I cut them into thirds. I used big tiger prawns. The only thing that I had to really change was the dressing. I would do that dressing as the recipe states, but then add about a half a cup of evoo and red wind vinegar plus salt and pepper, whisked in a bowl and added to the dish. beats by dre audio

    ..And if you know you’re drunk (publicly announce it), then you are hammered, wasted, bumping into shit drunk.
