Pix, it gives me warm feeling inside and high hopes for you when I hear you say things like, "put them to occams razor and shred the bullshit."  You're on the right track.  Good luck!

There was something quiet or subtle that worked wonderfully in the piece on Paddy.

Thanks! What I'm hoping came across, without me actually saying it, is the fact I'm fairly sure he's dead. What I'm undecided about is whether he was best out of his misery sooner, rather than the long lingering death that was waiting for him at the bottom of the bottle. He was a really tortured soul. I think he'd really loved that bitch (she left him for somebody else) and I dunno if living with that pain was better or worse than cashing in his chips early. In the end I guess that was Paddy's call to make, not mine.

I might be mistaken, but didn't you write something about Paddy before? There was something familiar about the name and the alcoholic dude connected to it.

Pretty sure I haven't even thought about this dude in the last ten years, let alone written about him. Someone else maybe? Paddy is an irish name - most people called that are probably alcoholics  :lulz:

Oh, I believe it. I like my drink too, but I get the sense that taking on either Pent or BadBeast in a drinking competition would not end very well for me. Though I imagine I wouldn't do too poorly. Boston is a drinking town.

Thanks guys. I think this might well be some of the best (by my admittedly low standards) shit I've ever written. I want to keep going but I don't want to fuck things up by forcing it and right now I don't have anymore to tell. Although there's definitely more in there I can't for the life of me think how to get it out so expect more, maybe sooner maybe later.

Great stories, man, I was riveted to the chair the whole time, and I had lots of shit to do...

I'm just glad I've managed to avoid one of those hospitals the times I've done something dangerous enough to get me locked up in one of them. I came REALLY close once, but the psychologist warned me, he said "Now, this question is important, and if you answer it one way, they'll have to put you in a special hospital, if you catch my drift.", I nodded, so he continued "Ok, do you think you might ever try something like that again?", worrying that I might need some kind of serious treatment, as what I was getting wasn't working very well, I paused for a moment, because I was thinking about doing something stupid that very moment, I still decided to answer "No.", to which he replied "Smart move, here's my card, if you ever need to talk about anything.".

I was pretty sure I didn't want to spend any time in a place like that, now that I've read these stories, I'm almost dead certain I made the right decision.

Pent, give it time.  Don't force it.  Whenever I force a rant, I end up x'ing it out and never going back to it.  Just let it flow when you need it to.  You've got a GREAT thing started here.  And hey, even if there's no more to let go of here, you had a wonderful run!

I think that's good. I really enjoyed your stories, but I had to consume this thread in several batches, cause I couldn't read more than 2 maybe 3 stories at once. That's how good they are, and bitter-sour in the same way that I liken Kafka to really strong blue cheese. Good, but not too much at once. Except one story, which had a punchline. That was also good.

Have you ever studied John Nash?

Just curious as I watched a Beautiful Mind tonight and I thought of you.
