Friday night was a good time. Spent most of the night (early morning) out at a Christmas in July party. There was abundant food, which was a good place to start. Good friends, which is a good place to continue, and a gift exchange, which is agood place to finish. Apparently this is a yearly thing, though this is the first time I’ve had the chance to take part. I was warned ahead of time that the gift exchange (which takes place after all the kiddos get get booted out) can get somewhat raunchy. I can handle that. What did worry me was that right before we did it, the additional stipulation that you had to model anything apparel that you got…that one had me a little worried. As it turned out, it was far tamer than I had been led to believe…at least this year. Mine was really more of a grab bag of innocuous articles. Although there was a litle bungie cord in it that I might save for…later.
I cracked up at the gift I brought though. I didn’t really have enough time to go hunt down a gift or anything, so I mostly just grabbed a box and filled it with stuff. Like anything I could find. I will try to itemize it all for you: a 2003 phonebook, 2 candles (unused), a mini shoeshine kit (made in China), a hat, a picture of me (unsigned), a 30 year old bottle of some random wine (unopened and very undrinkable), a book light, a blank CD, an army hat, and a Pizza Hut reciept. I think that’s everything. It was funny because as she pulled the stuff out, it was like the bottomless box of uber-crap. I couldn’t hardly keep my composure with the CD though:
Sarah: "Is there like music or something on it?"
Me: "No, it’s blank!"
Granted, this isn’t nearly as funny reading it and I recognize that and am sorry, but at the time I thought it was hilarious. So did most everyone. Next year will be even better though. I will begin taking suggestions any time.
So I went to see Clerks II last night. I believe I mentioned a while back reading a review that nearly put the fear of god in me with regards to this movie. I have now decided to call shenanigans on the site that wrote it though. If you really feel the need read it, go here. Having seen it though, I think the article was either a joke, they saw a different film, or they’re just complete idiots. My money is on one and three. Yes, both of them. In reality, the site has almost no reviews on it, but I didn’t bother checking that originally. So, shenanigans. Shenanigans, shenanigans, shenanigans. Cruel and tragic shenanigans. I blame Shannon, she showed the "review" (shenanigans) to me originally. The movie was great. Was it the first one? No. Was it awesome anyway? Yes. Go see it, I shant spoil anything for you right now.
I really like Madden 2006. In case you were wondering.
