Yes AWE, you are correct. There is no funk that a couple of beers can't cure.
Bucketing* was in the back of my mind yesterday. See how I was in such a blah mood, a couple beverages of a malty nature would surely lift my spirits. When Gambino sent out the word- a new word- I felt I had to do my duty. And in the end, it was good.
*Bucketing- v. the ordering of buckets of beer for consumption purposes
It was especially needed after I had gotten my ass handed to me playing some poker. Sigh.
Saw some people I didn't expect to see, ate some pizza (that subliminal message on Wheel of Fortune did the job), and got a nice buzz. I even enforced the shot rule and prevented a friend from drinking some crappy Red Bull concoction. Hey, you need to look out for your buddies. Friends don't let friends do crap shots.
I also had some plans made for the weekend. Weather permitting, I may finally get down to the State Fair today. Saturday looks like a bit of Tesla and Skid Row. Yeah, Slaughter is there also but who goes in to watch them beside their 6 fans?
Funny story about Slaughter. A number of years ago I went down to Alpine Valley for the Rock Never Stops Tour. Slaughter was the first act. Me and a friend got there after they had finished. We had grabbed some beers and were walking down the path alongside the hill. There was a golf cart coming up the path with some long haired dudes. The cart got about 3/4 up the hill and died. Ends up it was a couple guys from Slaughter going to sign autographs. They were forced to walk the rest of the way. Me and my friend laughed at them and got a dirty look from one of them as we walked by them. Boy would that have been a sad to end a story with "...and then the Slaughter guy kicked our ass".
A night of beer also helps in dealing with the news of the thwarted terrorist attacks. Keep the good work boys. People need to remember there is a war on terror going on. Say a prayer for our soldiers who do their job far away from home so we can be silly here at home getting drunk.
