There’s cause for celebration… It’s Monday, and Le Clown is two years sober! Salute!
Sparkling water makes my urinary bladder buzz.
Post Scriptum: It’s also moving day for Le Clown’s clan… Take it as my Out to Lunch…
Congrats! That’s a milestone to which I can raise a glass. Or, y’know, not.
Thank you. Don’t get a hang over please on my account…
No worries – I don’t get hangovers. Really.
That alone is enough to make many people hate me. But I pay for it in other ways.
*Raises glass in Salute’ fashion*
Good luck with the move
Santé mon amie!
You should be most very proud!
I’m proud. Everyday. But very proud about this particular achievement. I’m proud to be proud.
Le Proud Clown
Special day. Congrats!
Merci! Now that I’m back, I’ll go and take a peek at what’s being going on your side of the world.
Great job! I salute you.
All this talk about “salute”, “à votre santé”, “cheers” is making me thirsty.
Congrats, that’s a milestone to be proud of!
Thank you. It’s kind of you.
My nephew’s sober for two years! This is lovely to hear on a Monday morning! Thanks for sharing about this — addiction is a motherfucker — we can take inspiration from this. (whisper: it’s been almost five for me…) xoxo
Is it still Monday morning? Have I been sleeping all this time?
Congrats Clown! That’s awesome!
Thank you! Now I’m 2 years + 1 week sober! And I can count!
Raising a nice cool glass of water and ‘toasting’ with (vegan) donuts! Congratulations, Le Clown.
By vegan donuts, you mean old-fashioned honey glazed donuts, right? I hear bees were ok with it…
Oh gosh, the most irritating debate ever (at least lately). Friggin’ vegans and honey. Fortunately, I get out of it easily by just telling people that I don’t like honey anyway.
I’m taking vegan donuts to my students tonight…like they didn’t already love me.
That is awesome! I’ll raise my glass of Dr. Pepper, or bottle, to you. Terrific milestone to reach!
The Forgotten Wife,
Thank you for taking the time to share a Dr. Pepper with Le Clown… I think you’re soon up as guest blogger on Black Box Warnings, right?
Yes, I am. July 21st, according to Le Clown’s schedule. I will have a terrific post for you
Congrats, that’s great!
Miss Four Year,
Look! I took “congrats” and “great” and made “congreats”!
Congrats and good luck with the move. In my reply to your email last week I think I had this idea it was already done. My bad. Lemme buy you a shot of maple syrup.
I’m replying a week late to your comment about a week old idea… I can only count to 10.
Le Clown, wow, congratulations. You’re amazing. (I suppose I should say ‘magnificent’ but everybody know that already and this is directed more to your alter-ego anyway).
Thank you. I never got to answer your email… Now that the dust is falling again, I will have time to properly answer you about how freaking amazing it is that you have been sharing your life with your soulmate for the past 13 years! I raise my glass to that!
Congratulations! Quite an accomplishment. I raise my glass of Gatorade to you. Good luck with the move.
I like the blue-flavored Gatorade. It’s what I call the “mysterious flavour”… Blue.
Good luck maintaining the (in) sanity while you move
Thank you. I clicked on your avatar and may I say I just love it? I just did.
Thank you! Me going sober made everyone around me drink more, though…
Ha ha…better them than you heh
Be proud of yourself, Le Clown. It is a big deal.
Le 1950-Hair Calahan,
Thank you mon ami. I think you and I should now be friends on Facebook.
If I were on Facebook, that would be something we could do.
Fair enough. But I take it back now that I know what I know.
Lil Mama, Admires the strength of Le Clown. Coming from a family of alcoholics, I know it takes a lot of guts and will-power, and remembering your family first! Hurray Eric! Salute!
Thank you. I tried many, many times before, but failed miserably each time. This one was a real battle, but I’m two years into it, and going strong.
I’ll drink to that! Milk, man. Just milk.
I should make a post on milk, cow milk that is. I have been addicted all my life. I shit you not. 2% milk. Miam. I should go and have a glass right now…
I’m with you, bro–never lost the taste for it.
Wow! La Clown sir, that is a big reason to celebrate!!! I’m proud of you! You know most clowns are drunks, ya know?
Of course all clowns are drunk! Do you know how fast an alcohol-induced clown on fire burns???
lol, you better be careful then!
Felicitations Le Clown!
Merci mon amie. J’apprécie, vraiment.
This is a fantastic achievement, Le Clown. I’m very proud of you. I’m sure it hasn’t been easy and I know how much courage it takes every day. You may not do alcohol anymore but you’re obviously still drinking big glasses of kickass.
Look at you being all witty and shit and all and more. Isn’t this a great sentence? But seriously…. Thank you…. Did I tell you that I was working on a post on you? Yup.
Ruh roh. You’re going to blab about that incident in Prague, aren’t you. How much is Interpol paying you to spill the beans?
A real alcoholic has a real hard time getting and staying really sober. I’m proud of you, Eric, and in awe that you’ve done this amidst the roar of the greasepaint, the smell of the crowd. Salute, indeed! (You might have to exchange that red nose for a blinking light instead…)
A blinking red nose would make me infringe on Rudolph’s territory, no?
Or a four-way stop.
Congrats Le Clown,,,isn’t that Nestle bubbly water just the bomb?? And for a nifty price of .99cents at wally world!
Hope your move was “Magical”
It is indeed Nestlé’s bubbly water! I drink 3 per night, usually while watching a movie… I frequently visit the WCs, but Nestlé has been a great help keeping the booze out…
*golf clap* Bravo!
“Golf clap”… That sounds painful and contagious…
Ask Tiger Woods, he might know.
Having a family and not being mastered by things that don’t deserve your servitude… that sounds nice.
A Soul Walker,
You my friend are a good man. Thank you for your encouragement. As always.
Congrats Le Clown! Good luck with your move. xo
Is the move done already? I’ve been hiding for the past week… Let me know if I can peek out…
You can peek. Your lovely wife has finished all the work of moving…without your help…as usual.
So are you throwing a non-alcoholic party?
Hells no! Someone else will throw this party… Interested?
Hooray for you!!! Award (I don’t see any so I assume you don’t accept them, but you earn it anyway) on my page. Happy moving! We do it every 10 months! XO
Did you see how I publicly professed my love for your blog on Maggie’s blog? Yup.
Dear Le Clown,
Dying laughing & yes, it was most humbling!
You do it every ten months?? Why?
And I will go and thank you for the award that I will decline à la Marlon Brando!
Mad giggles. Go Marlon Brando!!! Cripes I had a q for you…OH, I saw you followed the Boston blog. I opened the posts, no password. Just vignettes, none of them complete, & MANY more to add, but they’re exhausting to post. Probably not so exhausting to read though.
My Friend, Le Clown,
Congratulations to you!
I’m glad to have “met” you as a sober clown. I fear a drunken clown would be a tad on the pompous side. ;0)
I do empathize, my friend. I have no dates to remind me of my sobriety, but admit it is somewhere just over 5 years. I refused to record dates for both ditching drink and quitting smoking for fear of setting myself up for failure… Either way, success has been the sweetest victory!
You are a prince among men, my friend.
You my friend are THE real inspiration. You have made decisions for your health, your family and your being that have only pushed you towards true happiness and fulfilment. Kudos.
Congratulations. I admire your strength and willpower. The staying sober thing is pretty cool, too. I am sending calm and peaceful vibes in you general direction.
Thank you for sending all these positive thoughts my way. Every show of support makes a difference.
A well-deserved Congrats to you!!! And hope the move goes smoothly!!
How are you? I’ve been away for a few days but I feel the world has continued turning without me… Insane, right? Thank you, my fellow blogger. I have a lot of catching up to do on your side of the blogosphere…
Congratulations! What an accomplishment! It makes you even more magnificent.
Thank you. This thread has been so incredibly supportive… Or at least, everyone who wrote on this thread. But I like to think the thread was also supportive, as that would be uber cool. And I was thinking: if this thread is on Facebook, maybe we could also be friends, you know!
Le Rambling Clown
*Clinking of glasses*
Thank you. Now that I am again connected to the fabulous interweb, I’ll be able to resume my browsing of your photos… You know….
It’s a celebration, bitches.
You’ve used the B word on my blog! Don’t say I didn’t warn you…………
Good news!!! I need to know how you did it… just sheer willpower?
Mostly willpower and therapy. And lots of support from my wife and kids.
Le Clown, so magnificent. Congrats!!
Thank you, magnificent blogger.
Congratulations! Very well done! You are an inspiration to the world on so many levels, I’m so proud of you!
Stop it or someone will see I’m blushing underneath my make-up…
Congratulations! My mom has been sober a few years now. What an amazing accomplishment!
I’m back! And I’m so going to blogstalk you within the next few days. You’re done.
Thank you for the warning.
Congrats!!! I love me some sparkling water. It’s a party in my intestinal tract.
Right? Nothing cleans your insides like a few bottles of carbonated water… And thank you, really…
Wow! Well done! Seriously, pat on back for Le Clown.
I tried to pat myself on the back, but I’m so out of shape, I ended up hurting myself.
We have some catching up to do…..
Yes, I think you’ve missed my whole ginger season, darling. I’m already contemplating the next costume to cover before Halloween.
What does sparkling water do to your non-urinary bladder though?
Congratulations on your sobriety!
70 some comments, and the last one finally has a reference to my “urinary bladder”. I’m a happy clown.
I please to aim. But I still don’t know what happens to your non-urinary bladder. Oh the suspense.
You’ll never know. I lost interest and moved somewhere else… I’ve lost interest again, and moved somewhere else……
