This is a five year old trying to pet a stove.
So, once again, me not turning down drinks I didn’t want resulted in me getting too drunk.
From now on policy is if I don’t want a drink, I’m not drinking it. I don’t care if I insult someone or they call me a pussy, I don’t want to be shitfaced.
That said, I had a lot of fun.
As much as sober Mark hates talking to people he doesn’t know about his lifting, drunk Mark doesn’t mind as much. I mean, he still doesn’t like it, but when (not if) my friends start telling people about it, he’ll talk about it. This ultimately culminated into me talking to some girl I didn’t know and still don’t about it for 5 minutes, with her finally saying “I bet you could just lift me straight over your head” Obviously, I said “Yeah, I could” Thinking ‘hmmmmm, I’m pretty fucking drunk, not sure how safe this is….meh, she’s small, fuck it.’ and overhead pressed her, relieved as fuck I didn’t drop her or something.
Also did a lot of Dancing to Money Trees, which, almost 6 months later is still fucking amazing, and will continue to be amazing for a long time.
I wore my “PUGS NOT DRUGS” shirt which is apparently incredible popular with the woman-folk. I swear at some point someone just straight up took a picture of my shirt. To be fair, it’s a pretty awesome shirt.
Sunday morning, however, was not fun. Went to sleep around 0330h, woke up at 0630h, had a drink of water, and left. Hour and a half drive, stopped for breakfast, and was lifting by 0830h.
Almost forgot, prior to anyone being drunk some girl told me my muscles were big and asked if I lifted weights, I obviously said “No, I do Zumba” and she was thisclose to believing it. I was pretty disappointed.

Cleaned all of them, they were a bit tougher than they should have been, and I’m pretty sure I took a micronap between sets 2 and 3

Honestly, my head was fucking killing me and I just wanted to go home and chug pedialyte and lie in bed.
