  1. Drinking and karaoke go so well together, and are one of my favorite ways to spend an evening. The one time I was experiencing severe “intoxication syndrome”, I slipped off the bar stool I was sitting on. Fortunately, on of my friends caught me, and the rest managed to hide my drink and substitute it with water. No need for a bartender to cut me off!

    Some of that list of symptoms indicating “intoxication syndrome” are amusing. If you take “slurring words”, and “bumping into furniture”, and “lack of focus”… well, that’s me on some of my antihistamines, with no alcohol at all whatsoever. ;)

    If y’all ever end up visiting California… we should all go do karaoke, and drink. What fun!

    Jen, that story is too funny!

    I enjoy karaoke and going out and having a good time from time to time. I remember a night out I was at last year with Squeak where we both had a super time on no alcohol and we were both asked if we were OK to drive home because to be having that much fun, the theory was that we had to be drunk!

    If I ever make it over your way, I’ll definitely stop in! ;)
