CO2, as a Torontonian I don't get the Toronto reference.  Also, aren't you from Burlington?

CO2 always came across as a lad's lad to me.

I haven't got black out drunk for a good 8-10 years.

It's been almost 22 years for me, when I was 17, and that was only the once.  I can handle my drink, but I also think dignity is really important as you get older.  When I worked in Sweden as a chef, my boss was an alcoholic and regularly on Fridays after dinner service we'd get through a box of wine and number of beers while tidying, but never to the point of me blacking out.

Actually, I talked with one of my co-teachers about that this week because the English teachers had dinner together (I had night class so didn't go) and my super lovely, cutesy co-teacher (in her early thirties) doesn't seem to have that self-control when she drinks with others.  So in the morning, some other teachers mentioned that she called them late at night in tears because she drank too much.  She then came in looking sheepish.  I had a similar thing with my wife in February, where she was almost unconscious from drinking with her school teachers.  I couldn't even carry her from the car up to our apartment (through the car park where my students' parents drive their car) because she was like a squid (no bones) then puked on the floor in the house.  I then sat with her to make sure she didn't choke on her vomit.  I just don't get it.  I told her if it happens again, then I'm leaving.

Not dissing CO2, it is just something I think that as you get older it should be something that is less frequent.  I don't want my wife to stop drinking, which is what she has done, just learn how to control it, and be dignified.  It happens everywhere, I know, but in Korea it is a socially-accepted thing, which makes it all the more worse.

I've just found since like 25, but especially since I turned 30 I get "The Fear", the morning after drinking.
"God what rubbish was I talking last night. What a dick I was." And like weird anxiety.

I guess that is tied in with dignity.

Very considerate of Dave to make sure his spouse didn't choke on her own vomit.

Which made me think:

There was a young foreigner in my neighborhood, looked to be late twenties with a manbun/d.donut.  I would see him sitting alone inside the CU drinking those plastic bottles of Cass on occasion.

A couple of Saturdays ago, as I was up early to go for a run, I saw him stumbling drunk, fall into some bushes.

I did a double take, but simply continued on my run.

I haven't seen him since.

Perhaps I should have stopped to check on him... :(

My Korean girlfriend and her family members we drink with on a weekly basis get hammered.  We're all over 40 and I can handle my beer but if I get to the point that my motor skills start to go I call it a night.  I've had to haul my gf around into taxis and back home too many times to recall.  And these are people with respectable jobs.  They just look at drinking time as a time to get acceptably hammered.  I think it's pathetic and often turns my nights out into a stressful form of babysitting.  It's why I usually push for a night in of drinking.  Makes my life easier.

Yeah, my bros are my bros. Once you're my bro, you're family. I've told my friends this, we don't have family here in Korea (for the most part), so keeping a tight group of people around you whom you can rely on is super important. When shit goes south, your mom can only help so much, a phone call can only help so much. You need a group of family here, really good friends who will watch out for you no matter what. I have a group like that, they don't all know each other, necessarily, (but most are connected somehow). Shine is one of those people.

Also, Pecan, he thought he might be gay, but if he's still expecting to have sex with me after 5 years, he has the patience of a saint.

Yeah, these are few and far between. Just a really stupid incident last night, I'm pretty good at handling myself since I broke up with my GF in March.

Jim Carrey is from Scarberia. And I was born in Hamilton, McU. But I moved around Ontario a lot, and I lived in Toronto  prior to coming here. I don't identify with Hamilton at all, I've been back once since we moved away when I was 10. I identify more with Sudbury and Toronto even though I only lived in both for three years. Hometowns are important but I have no family of friends there and I only went back once to see Mumford and Sons at Copps.

Hamilton is picking up these days from what I've heard with the artsy crowd choosing to live there over pricey T.O.  Aren't you thinking of Mike Meyers with the Scarberia reference?  Carrey was from Newmarket and actually lived in Burlington and I think Jackson's Point up on Lake Simcoe.  Anyways, all my points are ironically pointless and appropriate for this thread.  But, since you are Kev and from out that way you're likely the guy I shared a time slot with at Suwon immigration with when you were first in Gunpo.  If I'm right I'm amazed at my detecting skills.  Or I'm embarrassed that I spend enough time desk warming on this site to have gleaned that fact.  Either works.

Dayyumnnnnnnnnnnnn, hahaha, you are correct Sir! Well done.

I will find out all about you and bust your nut for Waygook (take that Pecan, who's gay now?). And, yeah, I was thinking of Mike Myers, I suppose, you're bang on about everything Carrey related.

Copps coliseum in Hamilton right?

Man, been there once in 2001 and had a blast at the Slayer/Pantera concert.  :azn:

Getting chased around parks by the OPP while in possession of 'contraband' was slightly less fun but still a thrill! haha

Huh?  You have me confused with someone else.  It is "exit only", here.

That said, I apologize for making light of your struggle with your identity.

A classmate I knew since kindergarten, went to school, studied the bible, and graduated high school with had similar struggles growing up in a traditional town.  He came to our twentieth reunion.  I don't know what transpired, but the day after, he was found hanging from the rafters in his garage.

His suicide note was never released.

Though that was years ago, people still face the same problems today.

If you like to wear makeup, drink cocktails, and have men buy you drinks all night, more power to you.  Men that are effeminate and metro make me uncomfortable, but that is my issue, not yours Kev.  I need to learn to be more tolerant of guys who are light in the loafers.

Again, my apologies.

Enjoy your weekend.

This was the third and worse time she had done it.  The previous two were just kind of slurry and rude like a market adjumma.  In Korea, maybe it is put up with as Korean men come back from their nights out plastered and their wives have to take care of them putting up with all sorts of nonsense, but it is just not something I want to put up with.  Drink, by all means, but pace yourself and learn when to call it a day.  Drinking over a whole evening/night and remembering it is so much more enjoyable than chucking them back in an hour and then becoming a boring pain in the ass for the rest of the night.  That is why it all came back to me with my co-t on Monday, a gentle voice and so soft, but when she drinks it is like 'eff it!'.  Late teens, early twenties maybe, not to be expected in your thirties and later.

I love how Pecan keeps calling CO2 gay and then even when he apologises for calling him gay he calls him gay again. Quite funny.

For the record I don't think CO2 is gay and i think it's pretty near impossible to make a youtube video for foreign kindies as a man without sounding a bit gay.

Pecan, I hope that if you have the grand fortune of coming across my effeminate self -- with my eyeliner, jewelry and tattoos -- that such does not make you uncomfortable. Perhaps we could grab some bourbon and talk long into the night about epistemology and the history of man.
Most people think I am gay, and thus I have found that I'd do quite well if I were. Alas, the good Lord made me viciously attracted to women. I will say that being metro is incredibly effective. Perhaps it's a sort of nouveau masculinity? Just look at these KPOP boy bands!
But please, don't let me come in between you and CO2. That's a match made in heaven if I ever seen one, yessirree.

No, I meant my Korean friend I was with. It's not all about you! hahahaha Also, if I posted a picture of Indo girl, which I won't, there would be no doubt as to my sexuality. I should stop thinking about it........ I'll get an erection at school and that's never good. Now, you might think I'm being overly defensive saying this, like I'm trying to overcompensate for some deep-seeded homosexuality. This is incorrect, I am simply bragging my ass off. hahahaha

As an aside, my Spanish friend (another BRO I mentioned earlier) were going up to the mosque area to get some Arabian food and we turned the corner just at the Turkish ice cream place.

 :P Uhhhhh, Keveen, where we gone to eet? 

 :police: Ah, we'll go up the hill and see what happens.

 :P  :police::laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

 :P Poor choice of words, Keveen.

Now that's gay!
