Things are certainly totally screwed in New Orleans. I hope Don Godwin is alright.

It turns out all Magic Hat beer isn't totally disgusting. This was news to me since every time I've ever drank it I regretted it. However, their hefeweizen is still gross so beware. Although I now think that Magic Hat is ok, one beer I'll never like, even though my friend Al brews it, is Rheingold. It tastes like shitty apple juice.

There is some speculation that the subway pervert featured in an earlier post maybe one of the owners of a raw food restaurant here in town called Quintessence. They do look somewhat alike. Check out the original and then check this out.

I've just found out that Dan (or "The Genius" as he's known around here) used to be a swinger. "I wasn't hardcore though." he says.

I just ate a disgusting turkey sandwich.

It took me by surprise, but lo and behold, the SPELLING BEE is back again. This Wednesday at 8 pm at Freddy's back room. 6th and Dean is Prospect Heights Brooklyn.

I got my hair cut and a beard trim a few days ago (35 dollars!) and the guy didn't really cut my moustache very well giving me a very Snidely Whiplash/Wilford Brimley look. Not sure I'm so into that.

I just found myself telling a story about one of my high school girlfriends to my coworkers. I was sort of wrapped up in the whole thing but when I got to the part of the story that usually captures people's attention about how she went off to college and I was working a dairy and the guy I worked with who was a Vietnam vet with a milked over eye told me "There's a lot of fish in the sea." and I started crying because this wasn't really all that comforting I noticed that pretty much no one was listening. So I stopped short.

Someone did ask me what she was up to these days. I told them the truth about how she lives in Boston and has had a boyfriend for ten years. I didn't go into how she was in The Profit$ though. I thought that might be a little too difficult to explain.

UPDATE: Link fixed

I was so looking forward to getting the new Harry Potter book from Jessie this Friday. She bought it for me as a birthday present and seeing as I had just finished The Knockout Artist I was ready for something new to read. Unfortunately, after going to a party where Robert and I ended up massacring the cheese plate, drinking up lots and lots of beer, and I stared dispensing my wisdom about life and love to 19 year olds I totally forgot all about Mr. Potter until the next morning when I woke up. Oh well. I'll get it this week. I'm just worried that I'm going to accidentally see more spoilers online like I did a few weeks ago which sent me into a tizzy.

On Saturday Heather and I went to go see the Fantastic Four. Now, if you see me in person I'll give you a longer lecture on what I thought of it, but why did they feel the need to screw around with Dr. Doom's origin? What was wrong with the original origin?

On Sunday I met up with Harry, Santos, and Carlos at Nevada Smiths for the Arsenal v. Chelsea game. It started at 10 am and it was totally packed with drunk people chanting. It was pretty fun although it definitely seemed like the mood could get ugly at any second. Harry and I left right after the game and headed to the Blarney Cove where we ran into Dan totally accident. I'll let him take it from here.

God hates boy scouts apparently. First, four troop leaders get electrocuted(Bush spoke at the funeral), then there was widespread heat exhaustion at the jamboree, then ANOTHER electrocution which killed one person and left another brain-dead, and today, one more scout was killed in a lightning incident. What is going on here? What is it with scouts and electricity?

Our office moved recently and the other day after work I decided to go have a beer at the bar around the corner. It's a irish pub sort of place. I went in and ordered the three dollar Stella special and chatted with the bartender for a bit. I asked him what time the place opened and he told me 11am but "If you're really in a bad way I'm here at 8am so you can just come under the half open gate and knock and then I'll fix you right up. Probably have one myself too. There used to be this girl that came in here, really pretty too, and she would come by three or four times a week for an early morning bloody mary. So, if you need it just come on in.".

The Island:

I loved it. There was an action scene in the middle of the movie that was really amazing (enough so that I'm considering renting Pearl Harbor to watch the first 20 minutes) and the whole slavery plus holocaust allusions were hilariously stupid. I loved it. I mean, it wasn't a good movie in the normal sense of the word but I sure was entertained. It's been said many times, many ways, but Scarlett Johannsen has big breasts.

The Spelling Bee:

At first it was looking like a prett low turnout but then more and more people showed up including some people I didn't know personally which is always nice. Other than that it was much the same. We did three rounds, I gave away a lot of cookies, and I managed to forget some of the rules. Johnathan won a round making him the only person I know of to have won the bee at Pete's Candy Store and the bee at Freddy's. So, congrats to him.
