All Because of the Absinthe or Random Night in Minneapolis

The night started at Dustin & Jed’s, where TJ, Kell, Becca, Dustin, Jed, and I ate copious amounts of peanuts (which were thrown on the floor), drank many beverages, put up random posters (a Jose Canseco poster now adorn’s their ceiling), and filled *our* video ipod (it had 0GB filled at the beginning of the night) with 25 GB of music. TJ & I put a ton of gel in our hair (why do Jed & Dustin have hair gel at their place again?). TJ put too much in (haha), and had to rub some of it off on the hallway carpet. TJ & I also took huuuge bites out a giant slab of ham Jed had in the fridge (“first time in nine years”) while nobody was looking. Jed’s heretofore pristine slab of ham has teethmarks in it, hehe.

We met up with Dan, Devo, Julie, Jenny, and Brodie at the bar (beer pong at Blarny’s night). Of course we enjoyed some silo’s, did some Jag bombs, and had some laughs. I requested Merle Haggard – Mama Tried on the jukebox – that was awesome. Dustin brought a fake credit card to the bar (Your Name Here) and I gave it to two girls and told them to “play whatever they want” (the jukebox took credit cards). It was funny, they tried and re-tried the card many times, not realizing it was the fakest credit card of all time. We ended up playing 1/3 a game of beer pong – there were so many distractions (I mean that in a good way). I can’t remember too much else (is that bad); suffice it to say it was nice seeing everyone at the bar and we had much fun.

The taxi ride back to Jed & Dustin’s was interesting; our cabbie thought he was Dale Ernhardt (#3 baby, haha). Dustin played some drunken keyboard (he’s really really good), Jed made some pizza, and 75% of us fell asleep on the couch.

FYI This is probably the first typical blog post ever on this website. I just wanted to see if it could be done, and I did it!

News Items

A) I will be in the cities next week, all the way until the 30th when I fly out to Vegas for New Years. I only have like nine things on my todo list (blarnys, sallys, big ten, casino, opening presents, the mall, bowling, reading, and eating), so definately hit me up to do something. EDIT: Also on the todo list: Ice fishing & celebrating Alicia’s birthday.

B) I had a snowball fight on the way to Rush Street last night with a eight year old. Except, he didn’t throw any snowballs back. I know that sounds kind of bad, but it wasn’t I swear, we all had a good laugh (especially me).

C) The latest friend to mine to move is Kevin, who is moving to Toronto next month. I guess it’s only about four hours from here, which isn’t *too* bad. Anyway, Liz & I promised we’d visit him lots; I hear Toronto is a great place.

D) If you haven’t seen Bad(der) Santa, see it!

E) Another of my friend’s is getting engaged (tonight?) EDIT: She said yes; he’s engaged (for better or worse).

Ugh

Boo-urns, I’m sick. It looks like I’ll be spending the next few days eating chicken noodle soup, napping, and watching the History Channel. Actually, yay….

To the Congress of the United States

Yesterday, December 7, 1941 – a date which will live in infamy – the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its Government and its Emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in Oahu, the Japanese Ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to the Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack.

It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time the Japanese Government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.

The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. Very many American lives have been lost. In addition American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.

Yesterday the Japanese Government also launched an attack against Malaya.

Last night Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong.

Last night Japanese forces attacked Guam.

Last night Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands.

Last night the Japanese attacked Wake Island.

This morning the Japanese attacked Midway Island.

Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation.

As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense.

Always will be remembered the character of the onslaught against us.”

-Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Stupid Milk Bottlers Association

So, I found out why I’ve gained so much weight since moving to Ann Arbor… Turns out I’ve been buying whole milk since June (haha). As we all know, red labels are used for skim milk in Minnesota. In Michigan, red labels are instead used for whole milk. Way to trick me into getting fat jerks.
