Thinkin' of drinkin'

"Oh the secret of the bottle
it may never be known,
so I raise my glass
and propose a toast
and this one baby, is for you"

One of the greatest songs about booze ever written there. In fact, it kinda inspires me. It was a year ago that AlCantHang and BadBlood developed the Bible of Thrash Vol 1. Now they are coming out with Vol. 2. So I thought, maybe I should develop something similiar for drinking. Like the Bar Jukebox- the best drinking songs ever written. The quick list would include, but not be limited to:

Secret of the Bottle- Jackyl
Have a Drink on Me- AC/DC
Mas Tequila- Sammy Hagar
I Drink Alone- George Thorogood
I ain't Drunk, I'm Just Drinking- Albert Collins
Cold Gin- KissI Love this Bar- Toby Keith, though I am trying to find the Sammy Hagar version.
6 songs to start. Always room for more so leave some ideas.
It is a cold one today. It was 1 degree when I was driving to work. Probably -5 with the wind chill. Taking a look at the weekend, it will be friggin' cold as well. But it won't be too bad leaving a bar tonight as it should be about 11.
So what is a person to do when it is this cold? Stock up and drive fast while doing it!
If you think it is too cold out there, then stay home. You can drink at home and chat it up with your internetty friends. But you may need to stock up for the weekend. Hit that liquor store on the way home from work to save yourself a trip. Always buy more than you think you may need. Read that last sentence twice. You may have a good time and run out. You don't want to run out. So be smart, and buy the 1.75 liter instead. But two if necessary and you can afford it. Because the last thing you want to have happen is you going to the fridge and discovering the you are on your last beer.
If you need to make a commute to get your booze, you can get to and from your destination even quicker in the cold. You can do 15-20 above the speed limit on the freeways. The sheriffs are not going to leave their toasty warm car to give you a speeding ticket, forcing them to stand in the cold talking with you. Unless there is an accident or you are trying to qualify for Daytona, they are keeping their butt in the seat of their car.
Later kids, stay warm. And rock on with your bad selfs this weekend!
