no title

I love headlines like this- Baker Hughes buying BJ Services for $5.5 billion. I thought a hooker would blow you for like $20. Must be some really good head if they are paying that much.

I didn't sleep well last night. Was out late on Saturday and finally got around to eating something at about 2 after going outside and hacking up my backyard. I ordered a pizza from a chain- mistake number 1- and sat down to watch some baseball. It took about 20 minutes longer than expected for the pizza to arrive. I dove into the wings first. That was mistake number 2. 20 minutes later I was on the toilet feeling my insides dropping out.

That is how the rest of my day went. I felt sick. My stomach was like a pool of acid rumbling about. I drank water for the rest of the day, hoping it would settle my stomach, but it didn't quite work.

My only other liquid alternative was beer. For once, I wasn't in the mood to drink beer. I could have walked to the liquor store to get a bottle of Coke but felt too lazy. That is when I noticed the bottle of wine in the liquor cabinet. It was the church special. Won it on a $2 raffle. I figured what the hell. It had flavor the water didn't. I went to get the corkscrew but then noticed it was a screw cap. High quality stuff! I twisted the cap and and gave a drink right out of the bottle.

Not bad. Then again I couldn't really tell you what great wine tastes like. I took another swig and decided that I didn't need a glass. It was then that I tipped the bottle and chugged a bit. I had to rethink what I was doing here. I was thirsty but downing a bottle of win in 20 seconds was probably not the best idea.

So now I wonder why I was awake at 4 am. Must be the oncoming football season.

Do you think that just maybe it could have been the effects of the Founders Dirty Bastard Ale and Flying Dog Doggie Style Pale Ale you drank to keep you happy.

Thanks for the suggestion!
