I was at a show benefitting RAINN and a band featuring about 12 different instruments was on stage. When the lead singer stepped aside I caught glimpse of a bearded man wearing a turban and a white robe, grooving out on the bongo. Seizing the opportunity, I pointed and exclaimed the above. If I had known it would be the funniest thing I would say all year, I would have said it louder.
I had four costumes for Halloween this year. I was a mummy, which was very well received but extremely hot and took a half hour to put on and take off. The second was a zombie, which basically used only the mask from my mummy costume and a half tucked in shirt. Third was Uncle Sam, a reprisal of my National Kick a Brit in the Nuts Week costume. My fourth costume, though, was a priest, including a borrowed bible and a piece of cardboard stuck into my collar. I must say, the bible can be pretty handy sometimes.
During my trip to Europe, somewhere in France, Erik got sick with some sort of evil flu. Starting in the French Alps and continuing for the entirety of the trip henceforth, Erik coughed. He coughed nearly every 5 seconds for about 7 days and probably continued coughing when he got home. Due to airline hell in Rome, we took a detour to Frankfurt for 13 hours and ended up sleeping on benches there. I wanted more than anything in the world to sleep, but Erik would not stop coughing. Every time I almost fell asleep, coughing would erupt from the bench next to me and wake me up. At one point I looked at him and thought I could probably smother him with my bag, leaving him unconcious and quiet, so I could to sleep. I never followed through with my plan, and I didn't get much sleep that night either.
I hope that this isn't the funniest thing that I say in 2003. I must say though, I really don't remember which time I was the most drunk in 2003. To make good on my promise above, though, here is a picture of me making someone very nervous just by standing next to him. Notice how disgusting my shirt is, that's because I was mixing drinks the entire evening, and as my intoxication progressed my shirt's thread to alcohol content rose exponentially. I think the goal of every New Year's Eve party is to set this record. Although I did make myself look quite silly that night, I'm sure I was even more embarassing in the night pictured.
Goddamn what a horrible movie! Now it's out on DVD! Now you can own one of the most horrible movies I've ever seen and torture your friends and family with it. I don't need to go into how stupid this movie was because I already devoted a long review to it. Read my review of Signs here. God... it was so bad.
when we went to Europe, I had said it would be a drinking tour. It turned out to be more of a farting and shitting tour. The entire trip we were plagued by horrible gas and I took several of the most potent craps of my life in Europe. The best of these, and the best of the year was aboslutely horrible. I left it in the hotel we stayed at in Rome. I shouldn't describe it, but it was monstrous. It took several flushes to get rid of it and left a wake in the air and the bowl that makes me shudder to remember.
LAN parties normally top this list, but during my Christmas vacation in 2002 I played D&D every day for five straight days. I woke up, went to my friends house, rolled dice and talked in a funny voice, went home and slept. Then I woke up and repeated the process. It was a ton of fun, but built up massive geek points that may never wash away even if I become famous some day. At least no one's ever been kept out of politics for this sort of thing.
While it wasn't an article, I am pretty fond of it. The comments almost unanimously, though, were on the last sentence. I knew it would be a little shocking when I wrote it, but I never expected so many people to respond, not with support, not with slander, but with wow. To be amazed that I'm not 100% solid cycnicism, read it here.
> Senat0r Jesse: You cannot wear DIGNITY > and BUTT PLUG at the same time." Ain't that the truth.
This really made me laugh. Also, it's probably one of the few things entered in the Ask Us form that isn't either: "r u gay?" or "haha u r gay lol"
