You KNOW you're going to want to go drinking with me after this one...

Today's meme is brought to you by all things booze:

1. When was the last time you drank?
Monday night.

2. Who was the last person you drank with?
My Hubby.

3. What is your favorite alcohol drink?
beer. I love Captain Morgan & Diet Coke. I love a good Riesling.

4. Are you an alcoholic?
Nope.

5. How many drinks does it take you to get drunk?
I don't know. It takes substantially less tequila shots than it does beer. And it takes less Guinness or Yuengling than it does Michelob Ultra. And if I haven't eaten, not much at all.

6. What is the last alcoholic drink you had?
A Michelob Light.

7. Have you ever gone to school/work drunk?
Yep. Not since I was in college, but I've done it.

8. Do you get hangovers?
As a general rule, yes.

9. When did you start drinking?
I was a freshman in high school.

10. Have you ever thrown up on someone?
No. But I did fall out of a car. On my face. I was 19, had to get sick. My girlfirend pulled off the road for me. I opened the door to lean out and be sick, and in her attempt to help me, reminded me that my seatbelt was still fastened. She unhooked it. I was so drunk I couldn't even catch myself, and I fell out of the car. Whoops!

11. What is the craziest thing you have ever done while drunk?
I can't pick just one. I've done lots of really stupid and crazy things while drunk - from dancing on a bar, to trampolining, to karaoke, to helping my (obviously) gay friend convince his high school bully that he was straight (don't ask!) to sweet talking my way out of an underage drinking arrest...

12. Have you ever hooked up while you were drunk?
No, but I made out with some random people in my day.

13. Do you wish you were drinking right now?
Nah. Although a glass of wine is always nice.

14. Have you ever been so drunk that you dont remember what happened??
Oh yeah.

15. What is the worst drink?
Oh lord. There's many: Ouzo - whoever thought something that tastes like a black jelly bean was a good idea is insane. Firewater: ICK! If we're talking shot drinks, then it's a liquid quaalude: Jagermeister topped with 151. I don't recommend it. And I certainly don't recommend drinking 4 of them.

16. Do you drink during the week?
Yeah, sometimes.

17. Has someone asked you to stop drinking?
Umm...when I was 20, I had a bartender ask me to stop after a particularly messy incident with a flaming Dr. Pepper, and my fingers and the bar accidentally getting set on fire. Does that count?

18. Have you ever been kicked out of a bar?
Amazingly enough, no.

19. When is the last time you were drunk?
Hmm...like stupid drunk? I can't remember. It's been a while.

20. Have you ever been in a fight when you were drinking?
I'm not a fighter. But I did have a girl get in my face once because I was standing next to her boyfriend at the bar on New Years' Eve, and it was 12:05 and he wished my Happy New Year - by turning his attention towards me, smiling and saying "Hey. Happy New Year." Apparently, she thought I was after her man.

21. Does your family drink?
My blood family, not really. My in-laws' family - oh, yes!

22. What is your favorite drinking game?
Questions.

23. If you could have only one alcoholic drink for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Hmm....probably beer.

24. Have you ever had a drink named after you?
No, but I've invented & named a few of my own!

25. What is your favorite day of the year for drinking?
St. Patty's Day, of course!

26. What is the earliest time that you've started drinking?
11:00 a.m. - I was in college, Wednesdays were dollar pitcher day at a campus bar. They opened at 11:00.

27. What is the longest stretch of time that you've drank?
Oooo....I've gone on several benders where I drank on and off all day. Probably the most serious bender occurred in college, starting at about noon, and ending with me in a bar, in my pajamas at closing time.

28. Have you ever passed out from drinking?
Yep.

29. Ever have to go to the hospital because of something alcohol related?
Amazingly enough, no. Any incident that involved medical attention for me has occurred while I was sober.

30. Favorite drunk pick up line?
I'm dating myself, but this was ala the Warner Brothers on "Animaniacs:" Heelllllllllllooooooooooooooo Nurse! (yes, it was used. Yes, it was on a dare. Even more amazingly, yes, it worked. I got his number!)

31. Have you ever had an interaction with police while under the influence?
Yes. In a bar. Underage. Not sure how I wasn't arrested.

32. What are your parent's drinks of choice?
Mom - beer/wine. Dad didn't drink.

33. Ever done a keg stand?
Yep.

35. What is your favorite alcohol related beer commercial?
Hmm...Budweiser generally has good ads. The man laws are pretty funny, though.

36. What's your favorite karaoke song?
As a general rule, karaoke and I don't mix. However, there's one particularly painful incident that keeps returning to my mind, and it inv0lved Barry Manilow's "Copacabana."


37. Do you have a favorite bar?
In just about every city I've visited!

38. Have you ever woken up in a strange place after a night of drinking?
Yes. I've also lost my car after a night of drinking. (really. I lived "Dude! Where's My Car?")

39. What types of alcohol have a bad effect on you?
Shots in general don't sit well with me. In moderation, I can shoot tequila or chilled vodka (a call brand, like Stoli's, etc.)

40. What is your favorite hangover cure?
Lots and lots of gatorade & Advil before bed. A good night's sleep. More gatorade and advil when I wake up, and much self-pity.

And there you have it. You totally know you want to go drinking with me now. :)

Fun times. If I'm bored this weekend, maybe I'll do this one. :)

Marina: I'm telling you - stay FAR AWAY from the jager/151 combo. It is BRUTAL.

Writer: After Lydia is born, we should have blog meet-up (but where?) and go drinking. Now, THAT would be fun, don't you think?

Wiccachicky: I'd love to see your answers to it!! :) :) Thanks for dropping by!!
