Why I don't imbibe with the alcohol

I had a whopping 2, count 'em 2, ciders last night and my head is now pounding. This after I spent the tail end of last night falling asleep on the couch while a large group of people were watching "the fight" in my living room. I think due to my healthier living as of late, my body goes into complete shock when I consume anything that has little to no nutritional value. I guess that's a good problem to have.

The thing I don't get is why people *keep* drinking after they start feeling drunk. I mean, I think it's fun for about 5 minutes and then I just start thinking, "Why the hell did I do that? I'm just going to feel like crap and I just consumed hundreds of empty calories." It's entirely possible though that I've only ever been extremely "tipsy" and never actually drunk. Maybe being drunk is awesome, but I don't think I could ever get over the hump of the tipsy awareness of the fact that I could potentially do or say something quite embarrassing. I mean, more embarrassing than anything my lucid self would do.

I dunno, I think I'd rather spend the evening drinking Diet Coke (of which I drank 2 liters on Friday night, thank you), singing Billy Joel songs with Ross and MattWhite, and watching Jake try to stuff himself into the oven (oh how I wish I had pictures of that to show you).

I don't trust anyone who doesn't get drunk at least once a day either.
