Is it sad to drink alone?

Would I like to be out drinking with The Consul and Kentucky celebrating my birthday right now? Yes of course. There is also a very small handful of other people I’d like to be with, but to be honest I’m quite happy as I am. I’m listening to some great music, drinking some great beer, searching for quality cleavage, and adding some (not so great) posts. As we get older and more remote, meeting up with the lads is not as easy as it once was – I’m 5000 miles away on a good day. I will celebrate my birthday properly with my family this weekend, but why not get some extra drinking in mid-week when everyone else is busy and/or asleep? I see it as an extra night of drinking rather than a sad lonely man drinking alone …
