the one where I’m a drunk Nancy Reagan

July 14, 2011

Let’s take a little trip back in time.

(Oh come on if you’re reading this you clearly don’t value your time.)

It won’t be a far trip (or particularly entertaining one—damn got to work on my selling technique) I promise. I won’t even use my usual “where we’re going we don’t need roads” Back to the Future joke.

(Ha sorta did so take that!)

AnyTauntingMyTwoReaders we’re going all the way back to Sunday. Close your eyes and picture what you were doing last Sunday night at about 10pm east coast time. Got it? Good, now forget it because this is about me and what I was doing. I was sitting pretty much where I am now. Where?

(Oh I should be painting you a mental picture?)

I was sitting at the table in what we call our library. My computer is open just like it is now and I had a glass of water. The window was open and I had a fan on the floor next to me. I was wearing a Miami Dolphins tee shirt and boxers. These boxers sort of have a malfunction where the little pee flap thingy is. The thing caught on the drawer (the same one that tried to bugger my bum.) and now the flap is a little bigger than needed. With this in mind I positioned the fan and my legs so that the air would blast right into there. Ah nice and cool man bits.

(See what happens when you want a picture painted?)

So there I was being all Fitzgeraldly and typing away:

Typey typey type type.

When I needed a break. So I went on google+ and there was nothing new posted in the last like 5 hours, so I headed over to the twitter. I happened to see a tweet from the lead singer of a band, posting a link to summer tour dates/album info. The band is Patent Pending. Now these guys were here couple months ago and are part of warped tour. I’ve not missed a Cleveland show of theirs in 5 years but warped tour doesn’t count. stream theier latest album here or check out The Magical World of Joe. We decided a long time ago (after attending one and being trampled by a migraine while there) that festival shows are a no go. The other reason is you know unemployed and all can’t just spend tons of money all the time.

So I was going to ignore the link because I knew when the album was due and figured they wouldn’t be here anytime soon. Eventually I was curious (thinking maybe near the end they’d return) and clicked.

Me: Holy yoda’s green little balls! Patent Pending has a concert tomorrow night!

(Probably didn’t say it that way but I wanted you thinking of yoda’s little green balls. You’re welcome.)

It was to be at Peabody’s which we hate but will go there to see Patent Pending any old day. It turned out it was in the tiny Pirate’s Cove (inside Peabody’s) which brought back mostly fond memories. They wifebot (when she was just the girlfriendbot) and her friends would go there for 80’s dance night. I’d attend (no dancing) and sit at the bar drinking and writing.


So we show up and are pretty much the only (non people working there/playing) drinking at the show. The show was awesome and I consider Joe (lead singer) a friend by now. By the end of it I was carrying a nice buzz. We headed on home but had to stop at Walgreens for cat food. After telling all the workers in there they are awesome I grabbed the kitty chow and stopped at the cheap movie bin.

Training Day was calling my name. From there I walked toward the cold drink section. As I did this happened:

A lady woman storms passed. Her children like 6 steps behind.

Little girl: Mom…mommy you said you needed medicine the drug section is back there.

Mom: Shut up. (she goes on to inspect the soda pop section.)

Me (tapping little girl on the shoulder): Say no to drugs and you’ll be awesome!

(Thumbs up.)

Little girl: ….

Me: Awesome. (thumbs up)

I left her there to ponder my wisdom.

Next time I’ll go with this:



What I learned from last week.

December 28, 2009

Spiced Vanilla Creamer (International Delights) is pretty tasty.

Ever since I’ve lost actual weekends having two straight days off of work makes me never want to go back.

Sherlock Holmes is a good movie. Some of the last previews had me worried that it would be overly goofy, but I enjoyed it.

There can be festive family gatherings where there is no actual fighting that happens.

That the Twilight Zone Drinking Game is a go!

The holidays really do fly by. It’s great to see everyone (some of them for the first time since the last time) but in the end it’s a blur. It leaves me wanting more.

It can be a good thing when a close friend gives you syphilis.

Who knew syphilis was so cute?

That I have two of the three fish I’m going to buy named: Admiral Ackbar and Lore. Also that I needed to write the names down because I’ve forgot about 9 of them in the process of thinking them up!

A beat down of the LA Lakers is even better when it happens on Christmas Day.

That really the only thing I spend money on myself for is comic books. It never seems to bother me to buy them, but I rarely buy anything else.

Even if most of the servers there are generally cranky I love the Inn on Coventry

And now you can get mimosas after 11 there on Sundays!

I miss half priced margarita night at Mi Pueblo

I’m a dork. I got a Green Lantern ring with my purchase of Blackest Night 5 and immediately tore it open and put it on. Like I said I’m a dork.

Above mentioned Green Lantern Ring:

I know I told you I was a dork.

I could eat cookies all day every day.

That I want a really nice close shot of this:

(It has “Read More Books” painted across the top of it)

I’ve not worked on my play in about a week.

That somehow I forgot about the new Spider-Man Noir. How the F is that possible?

There has been mistletoe hanging in the doorway between our library and living room yet I’ve not manage to procure kisses from anyone there yet.

My wife really knows how to outdo basically everyone when it comes to Christmas presents.

I may get more writing done when she has classes but I really like it when she’s on break from school.

I really want an iPhone.

Waking up to your cat throwing up on your bed is not fun.

Twice is worse.

That Citi Card can bite me blow me and lick me.

That homemade egg nog is rumtastic!

Did you learn anything fun from last week?
