I just got back from the bar. At midnight I decided that I would go to the bar to have a drink at 1:00. I was going alone and my idea was that by going out so late, I'd have a lot of trouble getting silly. I was right. I walked in right at last call. I ordered a shot of rye and a Mac 'n' Jack's. They didn't have any rye. Bummer. I was kinda looking forward to trying rye. I ordered a shot of Maker's Mark bourbon instead. Guns 'n' Roses came on the jukebox.

I started thinking about the first time I'd heard of GnR. I first saw "Welcome to the Jungle" on MTV at my aunt's house. This detail is not significant. At the time, my mom was dating a guy she met at AA. I can't remember the guy's name but he was at least 10 years younger than my mom. This guy gave me a copy of Appetite for Destruction. He is also the person responsible for introducing me to The Rocky Horror Picture Show, A Clockwork Orange, and The Exploited.

Why am I telling you all of this? How the fuck should I know? I just thought it was cool that one person that I only knew briefly had the power to nudge me in a direction that I'm still more or less heading today.
