It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year...
Yes, boys and girls, it's that time. The time when Kyle and I (and usually Burt, but he's out of town) sit down for our annual Thanksgiving Eve tradition: watching Shaft and getting obnoxiously drunk. Kyle and Burt are the originators of this tradition, I've only taken part for the last three years. I asked last week how it came about, and neither really remembers, kind of like how no one can remember why they're Yankees fans.
Tonight will be a thing of beauty: the lights low, the drink flowing, John Shaft (Richard Roundtree, of course) popping caps in ass after ass after ass. Truly, it is the most wonderful time of the year.
Tomorrow morning is going to suck.

2. Saturday Night Live is definitely on an upswing. I've been noticing it over the past two years. The young cast they have is incredibly funny (except you, Kenan Thompson...but you're improving.) The following video clip proves it. Sorry the audio is slightly out of sync, but it was the best clip I could find (edit: I found the official clip from NBC...much better. Thanks, NBC.)
I hope everyone enjoys their weeks, it's going to be balls-out for me since it's both a short week and the end of the month. On second thought, it's going to be balls-in because it's really cold right now. Let's just say "busy."

This is Why I'm Hot...
Since this post is primarily pictures, I'm not sure I can claim that it cured any sort of writer's block or writer's chlamydia, but it's something, damn it, and none of you sons of bitches are paying for it, so deal with it. I spent a long weekend reconnecting with some of my old college crew and drinking in excess, and it cleared the brain...or it killed some brain cells. Either way, I feel better.
These are some of my core group of guys from my college years. We try to get together once or twice a year for reunions, but it doesn't always work out. We were together this year for Kev's 30th birthday.
Ice and JT..don't fuck with us.
It was an epic weekend, filled with boozing, hot-tubbing, boozing, dares, and more boozing. More on the dares later when I have the pictures sent to me. I needed this weekend to clear my head. I know it may seem odd that I cleared my head by clouding my head with booze, but that's why I'm hot, and maybe why you're not.
*also, I promise that I will post my Halloween party pictures soon, Noah.

Dear American Media,
And NPR? You know I still love you, right? It's just that for the better part of the last four months, I've heard the exact same opinion pieces and interviews over and over and over and over, just in different accents. Between that and the fact that I listened to a fundraising pitch for a solid ten minutes one morning last month, I actually switched to John Boy and Billy. I heard more fart jokes, NASCAR jokes, and boob jokes in twenty minutes than some men hear in a lifetime, but it beat the hell out of finding out that if I donate more than $120, I get a keychain, bumpersticker, and am doomed to eternity on your mailing and calling list for future fundraisers. On the plus side, I can be a pretentious asshole who constantly reminds you that I am a step above the rest of humanity because I listen to NPR instead of the crapfest that is pop music right now. Does anyone remember real music? Also, you damn kids get off of my lawn! I'm keeping this ball if it lands on my porch one more time!
That's all I have for now...

You're My Boy, Blu...the Revenge.
I'm just thankful for two things:
1. A year later, the situation is reversed. I would like to thank Clemson University for firing Tommy Bowden.
2. Blu is a man of his word...which I never doubted.
I would also like to note that he did a much better job with his picture than I did with mine. Rest assured, Blu, if you ever beat us again in our 100% Bowden-free days, I will take it up a notch or two myself.
Once again, I want to thank Blu for being such a loyal reader and man of his word.

I'm going to get back into regular postings this month. I'm not going to do NaNoMoPriBiAckDer or whatever the thing is where blog authors commit to write a post every day. I can't for two reasons: 1. I have to concentrate on my real job. Until this blog starts paying the bills, it is far from my top priority. 2. I just don't have enough to say to post everyday. I could do it, but well over half of the material would make me cringe and quite possibly prevent some of the nine readers I have from ever coming back.
I'm floating around some new ideas to try out on here. For one, I'm going to start devoting more time to one of my passions: great beer. Expect links to beer review sites, my own personal opinions of beers, and maybe some sort of swag giveaway from all of the random beer stuff I have sitting around the house. Also, I'm in the process of trying to sell my house, and when I move to my new place, I will have more room and plan to start home-brewing.
I'm also going to be doing more cross-promotional stuff between here and my side-project, Cap'n Sloshy's Breakfast-O-Rama. If you think I've been slack about posting here, well...it hasn't been updated since October 5th. Honestly, that blog can survive solely on the Capn's stories, but he likes my style of writing, so he relates the stories to me and I post them.
I should have some Halloween pictures up soon, stay tuned.
Also - don't forget to vote tomorrow!
