Halloween Plans and Other Bits of Tid

So what are everyone's Halloween plans? Any good costumes? DanaWillEatU and I will be attending a Halloween gathering with fellow work friends at Tilla1234's abode. I plan on using something mysteriously called "black vodka" to mix unnatural looking, scary, and ultimately very alcoholic drinks that hopefully more than just myself and Tilla will consume. DanaWillEatU and I will be in costume as Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, and this spud plans to be the lead singer of the greatest Halloween Rock Band impromptu musical group ever, so long as Bon Jovi and Journey are saved for last and no one tries to kill my singing buzz.

Also, I would like to make note that there is a Daymonster imposter roaming the streets in my town. Next chance I get I will post a picture for all to see. I saw him at church the last two weekends (which was a clear indicator of imposterism and not full fledged cloning). I also found out this week that my supervisor at work frequented the Broiler while growing up. We discussed the merits of greasy food conquering hangovers, and agreed hollandaise sauce is a big help.

I played Halo 3 for the first time in probably a year with Tilla1234 last weekend while cursing Drew Brees ruining my fantasy football hopes and dreams (I ended up winning the week anyway, thanks Eli and Knowshon). Tilla had McFadden, which made me want to hit him with my roller. On another football note, I was voted MVP of our touch football league at work last night. I took over for quarterback 3 games into the season and won 2 of the last 4 (we were previously winless). Yesterday I threw TD passes of 15, 20, 30, 35, and 40 (mostly RAC) in my best performance yet. Reminds me of losing to SB and Puyo over and over on the IM fields, dealing with Chode as a receiver and my own defensive incompetencies.

Lastly, a bowling league update, our team name this year is "Smurf Yeah!" and we again had to find a new team member as our 3rd left work. Ironically, 3 weeks into the season our replacement announced his departure (that's 3 members in 4 years, anyone willing to drive on Thursdays and join my team?). Tonight I posted a 119, 171, and 178. My average so far is a 135, 15 pins lower than normal. I'm trying a new technique to try to generate higher revs on my ball and increase consistency, however the early goings aren't going so well (excluding my last two games tonight which I hope to continue forward). On a related note, the local lanes have added Schell Dark to their list of tap brews, which is comforting since it's a favorite of mine.

I hope to find time in November to visit the clubhouse, however half the weekends are spoken for already so it may be hard.

Happy Halloween!

I am going as a single dad with an illegitimate child from Africa whose mother was eaten by a hippopotamus.

Nice post. I wasn't there for the 2v2 football games, but I can imagine your frustration watching Chode play receiver.

I went/am going as Hannibal Lecter. I found a straight jacket rental at the costume shop and slicked back my hear. Might put some "blood" on my face tonight, unsure. It's very hard to drink w/ a straight jacket on, so I usually have my arms untied.

Off to see the Hawks beat MSU.
