Being a drunk is awesome! According to Anthony Hopkins, his penchant for the sauce in the early 1970s resulted in severe hallucinations. He even claims that he would talk to the sea and the sea itself would talk back to him. Is it just me, or does that sound really cool? The man's been sober for three decades now, but his recollections remind me a little of those trippy anti-drug films we used to watch in school that were supposed to turn kids off drugs but ironically made drugs seem weird and appealing. The sea has never spoken to me, although it has waved to me before. Forgive me, that was a lame joke.
