    'Get drunk!
    Stay drunk!
    On wine, virtue, poetry, whatever! '

    I love that.

    And to 'Amber Zenisek', I'm sorry about your situation, but I doubt that was the point Baudelaire was trying to make. And you can't blame your father for your or your brother's behavior. As worthless as your father may be, the only person who can make your life better is you. That was a tough lesson for me to learn, so I wish you the best of luck. (Report) Reply
