First date mistake: Booze

If you plan on going out on a date this weekend or attending a party, perhaps you should consider having a “dry” weekend. Some people handle their alcohol with no problem. They know their limitations, they know what to steer clear of and what is safe. Unfortunately, some people are oblivious to their tolerance level and they pick the wrong time to get the hard lesson: on a first date.

I have been out with someone who got sloppy drunk and as fine as he was to look at, after the 4th drink he got really unattractive. He was the type to become obnoxious and loud when he had a couple of drinks in him. Although it was eye opening, I wonder if it was better to learn this sooner or later?

When you go out with friends, do you have a couple of drinks socially? Do you avoid drinking on dates?

Have you ever been on a date with someone who had too much to drink and their personality changed for the worse?

P.S. What are your plans for the weekend? Whatever you do, be safe!

Anybody here know of a good shrink/palm reader.

I’ve been feeling palpatic happy these past two Fridays and don’t know why exactly.

Been having some dreams but cannot remember a thing.

In my rational mind,I been thinking a lot about that Ogolthorpe university boy that disappeared at sea and the subsequent mum stories.

U think my mind is playing tricks on me??

Do they still have palm readers in underground Atlanta?

I’m there with you MMeelloo. I don’t miss drinking. Mainly I would have a drink socially but I don’t even do that anymore. I can hang with a dude having a couple but not a lush. Never could acquire a taste for beer.

Exiled – It’s funny you mentioned Palm readers since we were talking about it briefly today at work. I could not tell you the last time I went to Underground. I know there is one in Stockbridge, not sure what side of town you’re on.

The last time i went to one (as a gift from a co-worker) the lady told me “I’m sorry but I only see 2 kids in your future, I don’t see you getting married. I do see a fella in your love life that will wear a uniform, have a J as an initial” blah blah blah…

@Lady,cow balls,tongue,feet are tasty if the cook knows what they’re doing!

Any man that eats cow feet and they have a woman,she will always wear a smile.

@SlimNu ~ I saw that show once a few weeks back because it was interesting. However, the female medium is quite convincing. It is a very interesting show to watch. I only know of this medium in Long Island with big platinum blond hair. She convinced me. Not sure how she knew half the stuff she knew and the reaction on the client’s faces couldn’t have been staged. It’s weird.

Almost like that pet pyschic on The Bert Show a few weeks back. She told one of the hosts that her cat wanted colder water (not sure about stuff like that).

It happens. There’s a place in the (biblical) story of David/Saul where Saul couldn’t hear from God so he went and had the dead prophet (Samuel) raised by a soothsayer. The dead asked why was he disturbing him. Told him he was going to die that night in battle…him and his sons.

He had to disguise himself to get her to do it because there was a law passed that there should be no more soothsaying. When she realized he was the king she got to trembling because she was suppose to be put to death for practicing. Of couse he told her no worries.

I never had tripe nor chitterlings. Nothing appealing made me want to even consider tasting chitterlings. I don’t care how much any one brags on how good they are, esp. with hot sauce. Well, I don’t eat hot sauce so that’s a girl to do.

Is 1:56 the explanation why Cel?

Or it’s deeper than that

So Cel,check this..Julius Ceaser was told to ‘beware if the Ides of March’ by a soothsayer and he ignored the warning..

Now i thought if one has the ‘gift of sight’,that’s a blessing from God.

Why shld they spurn it?

I think they are people who abuse their positions,gifts etc,like with anything.(liqor)etc.

They’re are false prophets as much as they’re are true ones.

Leggs – Yeah, I can’t say I have much belief in pet psychics but those mediums seem to give you something to think about. I was just discussing this at work and if energy is neither created or destroyed, it seems as if there is a possibility for energy to be left behind after a death…whether it be benign or malignant. I know I believe I saw a ghost twice when I was in high school.

I believe “energy” can be left alone. The smell of your mother’s favorite perfume suddenly floats in a room you’ve never been in before. Here’s another example. This girl was walking to class after already having a bad day and had to study for a test that night. While walking she see’s a yellow post-it on the ground. She loves post-its. She bends down and picks it up, only to see a msg in her father’s handwriting. Some words of inspiration. She puts in the front of her notebook. She looked at all night while studying. Went to show her mother the next day, and the notes had disappeared.

Things like htat I do take notice to. In my mind, it’s highly probable.
