Bathing With The Drunken Viking . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Saturday, January 27, 2007

{This is the sixth of what will be a recurring series that will only happen when I have consumed far too many spirits with my brother. Last night, several celebratory pints were ordered which triggered strange thoughts, candid insights and pure horseshit. Selah.}

* Allowing more than 3 people to buy you a shot for your birthday is a very bad idea

* If every stripper who claimed to be putting herself through medical school actually was then I would visit my doctor much more often.

* "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" is an excellent movie, but I have to believe that part of my reason for liking it so well had to do with the fact that Jessica Rabbit is probably the sexiest cartoon character to ever walk the face of the Earth.

* I love peeing outside in nature - it's like one giant toilet.

* I know Sex on the Beach was a good thing to buy a girl in college and I also know it sounds vaguely interesting in theory, but the reality is that sand gets everywhere and into every orifice and that is not very funny at all.
* New Blogger forced/tricked me into signing up for it yesterday and I'm still pissed as I hate learning this crap (like how do you move pics within the fields). I was holding out for months against those bastards, but they finally won.

* Serving any kind of seafood at a fast-food restauraunt is usually a horrible idea.

* I like to wear varying shades of black-on-black on occasion, but nearly always worry about looking like Neo from "The Matrix."
* The term "thinking outside the box" has been used so much that I can't figure out who the hell would still be thinking inside the box? And if so, they damn sure wouldn't admit it.

  2. Happy-Almost-Birthday Sir Random!

    Those must have been some wicked shots you had last night! Directly influencing the amusing mix of subjects on your post-party post!

    Only alcohol residue could explain their incongrous relationship 'cause I'm sitting here, quite sober, trying to make a coherent connection...

    viking horns in a tub/black/ sand/ box/stripper pole/med school student jessica rabbit/peeing in the ocean/sex on the beach...I give up! Must add a shot of Bailey's to my coffee and try it again!

    Party On!!!

  4. Beta blogger tricked me too about a month ago...bastards.

    I always wear black on black, i love it. As long as i'm not sporting shades and a trench coat, i think it's not so Matrix.

  6. I'll admint it. Nothing wrong with thinking inside the box. Most of the time there's a proven way to do things. Why reinvent the wheel if you don't have to? You only need to think outside the box if what you're doing isn't already working.

  7. JLee Says:
  8. Welcome to the dark side (Google Blogger) Resistance is futile! I agree with most things on this list except the "peeing in nature" part. It's not a girl thing.

    Hopefully it wasn't too much more than 3 people buying you shots or you're probably sleeping it off right now.

  9. Robert Says:
  10. I was just wondering, since no one admits to thinking-inside-the-box, wouldn't that make it thinking-outside-the-box to be thinking-inside-the-box?

  11. Wendy Says:
  12. Ugh. "Thinking outside the box," "pushing the envelope," "connecting the dots"...I HATE THEM ALL.

    My hub says the next euphemism du jour will be "coloring outside the lines." I am so glad I no longer work in the corporate world. I would have smacked someone upside his cliche-spouting, power-tie wearing, CEO-ass-kissing, Yuppie bastard head by now.

  13. Orchid - It can be a long and twisted road when the brain wanders by whatever means drove it there. Glad you see the pattern & thanks on the birthday wishes. Ha.

    Miss Ash - They are sneaky as snakes with that Blogger BS. I'm glad about the Matrix thing, however, as I think it works well if you can pull it off.

    Robert - Exactly. If what you're doing works just fine - old blogger - then why think outside the box - new blogger - and just leave well enough alone.

    Jlee - 3 is just the lucky number to stop on, and I understand not responding in nature when nature calls for women as it's just not quite as easy.

    Robert - Now that does make sense. The next time I hear that expression I might just bring that up; as long as the person who just uttered it is not my boss.

    Wendy - That coporate lingo is nauesating (sp?) and you are lucky. I once almost lost it in a meeting with an old boss who strung that cliche with a sports metaphor and something else about giving 110 percent. Frightening. And I think your husband has a decent shot at being right.

  15. Jessica rabbit IS sexy if I say so myself!

  16. SymplyAmused Says:
  17. Oh no! Not the new blogger!!! poor you... happy happy birthday!!! (on Monday)I love black on black. Makes me look thinner..that's my story and I'm sticking to it : )

  18. Dr - You are not kidding. Nobody in their right mind could disagree with that.

    Symplyamused - Yet another point in BOBs favor. I'm keeping it.

  19. Jackie Says:
  20. Maybe since everyone has been so conditioned to think outside the box... that by thinking inside the box they are actually thinking outside the box.

  21. Another vote for that chaing of box logic as I can get behind it too. Everyone is outside the box these days.

  22. Happy Birthday! Sounds like it was way too fun!!!

    By the way they tricked a lot of us into signing up for the "new" blogger.

  23. Robert Says:
  24. What's not to like about new Blogger? I've been using it since it was in Beta. It's the same features as the old blogger but it works faster. Don't you remember those annoying attempts to post and watching the spinning graphic click a percent every three minutes?

  25. Sarcastic - They are sneaky and devious and they got me. Thanks for the birthday wishes as I've got less than a day before it hits.

    Robert - It will likely be fine in the end, but right now, there are enough differences that are frustrating me to no end.

  26. Melissa Says:
  27. Change is not our friend! I'm still resisting.

    While "Think outside the box" is annoying, "worst case scenario" seriously pisses on my Cheerios.

    Happy birthday! Maybe it's better to say it early rather than on the day so it doesn't interfere with the crashing blow of father time marching across your face.

  28. Resistance is futile, but hold out as long as you can. They finally forced me to switch, much like Father Time about to land a death-blow on me, but that's another matter entirely.

  30. There are some good ideas to be done from inside the box if done correctly. Outside the box is outside for a reason.

  31. Carmel Says:
  32. Was it your birthday recently? Happy birthday to you!
    Ohhh nice picture of the gorgeous keanu!
    I'll be sure not to let anyone buy me more than 3 shots for my birthday. I've missed your blog,
    Take care :)

  33. Slopmaster - Agreed. Personally, I like to straddle the box & not play favorites as every situation calls for its own solution.

    Carmel - Thanks for the birthday wishes and glad you're back around again.
