As we prepare to celebrate the new year tonight, I can't help but think of lyrics to Todd Rundgren's "Party Liquor" song:
There is this party, they say I should come by
I'm bad with strangers, but I may give it a try
Sittin' in the corner, and I'm feeling kinda shy
I see someone, but I'm afraid to catch her eye
And in my mind
We'll have a nice time
Drinking fine wine
Then somebody yelled
"Wake up and smell the moonshine"
And the lights got dimmer and began to flicker
Then they broke out the party liquor
This shit gets crazier with every passing hour
I should slow down, but I don't seem to have the power
I'm mixing everything including grape and grain
I'm thinkin' thoughts that I should never entertain
Then the loud mouths lose it, and they began to bicker
Over who holds their party liquor
And we all find out just who can get sicker quicker
When they break out the party liquor
While the trash piles higher, and the floor gets slicker
'Cause they spill so much party liquor
And the TV's blaring 'cause they can't find the clicker
Things get so lost on party liquor
So everybody sing
It's party liquor time!
Moderation of these:
can avoid one of these:
Celebrate, but not too much. Don't drink and drive. Have a safe night and a safe 2014.
Moderation is alive in the lab.
