How to survive being hit by lightning

Posted: October 6, 2012 in Fridge Note, the Self-pity goes to 11

This weekend started off by my paying $6000 for a piece of paper.


Well, to be exact, the piece of paper is being sent to someone else.


Even when life is going OK, it sucks.  At least I got free drimks last night.

    Free drimks is the best kind.

    Choices, we makes ’em.

    If I had six grand anymore I’d pay the rent.

    Or maybe I’d get on a plane to Hawaii.

    Or maybe I’d buy a tent, a shovel and a fifty five gallon drum of Sailor Jerry’s and head east.

    Hey. Remember Head East? Bible Thumpers, but really good.

    Of course, in this case it’s because I can’t really head west. At least not in a tent.

    I assume you had a good reason for sending this ridiculously overpriced bit of wood pulp to some still living entity. Maybe you should at least have consdered getting a crossbow – we’ve seen how effective they can be. Even though I’m not sure where that dood gets all his extra bolts.

    The Prince and Miguel show is in full swing behind Justin Verlander – I’m waiting for the Giants game. I wrote a blog post about Dusty baker.

    I kinda like Justin Verlander. He seems like he’s hilarious n shit.

    My new neighbors in the apartment that faces mine – it’s in the next building over, so I’m not sure if they qualify as neighbors, but we have breakfast closer to each other than many married couples, so they’re certainly SOMETHING – are European. I haven’t figured out what language they’re speaking yet – I’m hoping it’s Bosnian, but it might just be Belgian – but they have an admirable European ambivalence about wearing clothing. I somehow feel better about my trouser troubles…

  3. they have an admirable European ambivalence about wearing clothing.

    Um. Go on. Please. Now.

  4. Even when life is going OK, it sucks. At least I got free drimks last night My life sucks and I didn’t even get free drinks damn it. Consider yourself lucky in that respect m’dear Zombilicious.

  5. O yeah, I am one whiny sumbitch of a zombie, ain’t I? Sorry everybody….

  6. Landru says:

    I was given to understand that the free punch and pie of blogging is that you get to whine as much as you damned well please.

  7. mikey says:

    Why? Do Colts fans hate having a lead with five minutes to go?

    I suppose I can relate. I hate it when the team I’m rooting for has a small lead in the fourth quarter and the other team marches down the field, some skinny fuck who couldn’t get a date in school kicks a field goal and they win by one or two. THAT’LL make you open a fresh bottle of Sailor Jerry’s…

  8. mikey says:

    Hey, waitaminute….

  9. mikey says:

    I got no problem with whining, I do a fair amount of it myself.

    But when your skin is so thin you can read the back of the cereal box through it, well then you gotta wonder what you’re doing…

  10. I’ve been wondering what I’m doing for several years now.

    But in any case, considering how that fucking game came out, my comments were just stupid. So I memory-holed ’em and wandered off to the kitch to slap together a lasagna while drinking several glasses of whine wine. It wasn’t as if anybody except you and I were reading ’em anyway, mikey.

  11. Landru says:

    Wait a minute, something bad happened to the Packers? Sorry, I was busy reading about how the Kansas City Star won’t print my team’s name, and watching my team’s rookie quarterback get his bell rung on a day when they decided to make him safer, and enjoying the unmistakably tortured sound of my wife watching Jay Cutler play quarterback, which is way better than when she had to watch Rex Grossman play quarterback, back before he went to her other favorite team.

    It’s a good life.

    I have just paid money for yet another paint-bedaubed piece of canvas, but it was only NZ currency.

  13. fish says:

    my wife watching Jay Cutler play quarterback

    Do they really call that quarterbacking? Who knew?

  14. Big Bad Bald Bastard says:

    You change the place around? It totally looks different, old chum.

Go ahead, tell me how I fucked up this time.
