Hey there blog. Haw was your weekend? Awesome!
I am indeed the best man at my best friend, The Ghost's, wedding. I walked in to his house on Friday and he handed me a card in an envelope. The card notified me that The Ghost and his fiance would be honored if I would be an usher at their wedding.... What? I was a bit taken aback by this but told him I'd love to. The Ghost then paused for a couple minutes and got a little upset. He was holding, behind his back, a card requesting me to be his best man. He was upset that I did not throw a tantrum about having known him all our lives and not being the best man. It was unfortunate that I disappointed him. I brought up the point that if I did throw a tantrum about not being the best man then I am probably not a good best man, amirite?
I am now definitely a bit nervous. I have to get a tux. I have to write a speech. I have to plan a bachelor party. The wedding is October 16th. Fuck me. I do not have as much time as I thought I would. Whatever, enough of that talk for now...
Let's see... What else is there from this weekend. Oh yeah! We went to that Hockey Classic in Madison, WI. It was the Wisconsin Badgers v Michigan Wolverines. Who won? Fair question. I have no idea. See Madison is a college town. There are bars EVERYWHERE. Parking NOWHERE. Oh, and it was freezing fucking cold. The game started at 5 pm which I was not notified of. We went to one of said bars. Got hammered. For inquiring minds it was $2.50 for domestic pitchers and $4 for a bacon cheeseburger with fries.
We made it to the game a bit late and were freezing our asses off and pretty drunk from the 3 hour drinking-as-quick-as-you-can pre-game we had at the bar. The atmosphere was absolute shit. The Ghost and Twin J were cheering on the Badgers and people were staring at us like we were being absolutely ridiculous. The Ghost reminded everyone in our immediate area that they paid to watch their team play a hockey game. Ugh. Whatever. I was just standing there attempting to not think about just how cold and on the verge of frostbite I was.
We decided to leave after the first period and headed back to Brothers. At some point here it was decided that it would be a good idea to go to Ho-Chunk Casino in Wisconsin Dells.
Needless to say I was back at The Ghost's place at about 1:00am. Dead tired and down $30 from the casino trip. I have lost A LOT more at a casino in my time so not too worried about that.
What else... Oh yeah! There was a football game played last night. That was cool. Saints won. I was not thinking that was going to happen. Good for the city though. At the end of the day I'm sure it's just a mere distraction from everything that has happened over there but regardless, good for them. I was watching at a friends place who has a room mate who is a HUGE Saints fan. He literally shed tears when they won. Kind of lame but I'm not gonna begrudge the guy any type of fandom/pride for his team/city. So we'll leave that. I ended up winning about $45 but my room mate was the big winner collecting about $250 total, I believe. So he's buying the next couple of cases of BL for the crib. Speaking of Bud Light they had to have the best commercials last night, right? I'm not really one to go nuts over the commercials but whatever.
In real life news I might get President's Day off. That would be awesome! Hmmmm. What else. The girl and I are having a bit of a date night. Should be fun. Dinner and a movie. The girl loves the OG, man. That's cool though. Could be worse and I could have to buy her ACTUAL Italian cuisine at an authentic Italian cuisine price, amirite?
Okay, I've got to wrap this up. I really worked at a good clip this morning/afternoon and want to close the day on a good note. We have a huge client coming in tomorrow and I think that if I can impress that I will probably be more likely to get Monday off... I'm a cubicle drone, I know. Go ahead, throw your stones. We'll see who's laughing when I'm sitting around on Monday rubbing cocoa butter all over myself whilst I play video games in between masturbation and Chinese food binge sessions. Losers.
I love you.
Have a good night.
Don't be upset if I'm absent tomorrow. Again, big client coming in to test us before they purchase us.
