Please don't mow the lawn when you're drunk.

Like hanging the outdoor xmas lights, 2 stories up @ 1 am! I was like a drunk cat and those sob lights all worked! I cook, I clean, I occasionally spill a drink but make up for it by pouring another! It’s those stupid things that I hate doing… I do them at night, alone and have drinks which make them more fun to do! AND I FEEL MORE PRODUCTIVE! I think the drink makes the crap work more enjoyable! It has to get done, why not stumble along the way?!?

Now, things I like to do (brew beer, drive, $work$, etc) I enjoy doing w/no beer / drink. I actually don’t rhahb during brewing. That screws me up! By the time I have to rack I’m too lazy to clean so I stay no-drink during brewing! But when it's time to take out the trash then it’s a session!

I was more productive in school when I was writing code drunk too. Too bad I can't carry that to the job scene!

There's definitely a sweet spot. If I only drink one beer I'm lights out in 30 mins. after the 3rd I'm wide awake trying to get something done.

That just means you haven't found the right company yet.

I hate cleaning, but my wife works nights so sometimes I find a honeydo list when I get home from work.

A few beers and I am a cleaning machine! Otherwise, it usually doesn't get done in a timely manner.

Cleaning the dog runs and yards for sure goes better with a slight buzz

I drink afterwards. Between the cottonwood tree and the fact that this place used to be a daycare center, mowing the back yard is like running a demolition derby on a tricycle. I hurt all over.
