Christmas Party Aftermath...

You know you are at an interesting party when you meet someone....and they give you their phone number....and at the BOTTOM of the little scrap of paper, they write something like this..."Mark and Susanne's Christmas Party"....when you inquire as to the reason for this, they respond thusly....

"We'll probably get drunk tonight, and when you find this in the morning, you'll have NO IDEA what this number is for, so this is just a reminder.."

Actually, it was quite prophetic...because drunk we did get....I was doing fine on the blend...Dewars, I believe....until the Scotch Goddess showed up with a bottle of 12 year old Macallan...that was the final straw...pure nectar of the Gods it was...but, I digress...

A good time was had by all concerned...much guitar was played..much drunken yelling singing was done....much to the amusement of the sober members of the congregation...and many new friends were alienated made....

Oh, and back to the "number" I was handed? Don't go getting all excited...pervs...

A few months ago, I bought my Brother a Meucci pool cue....the base of the cue is Ivory...I have one just like it, but I wanted to get his customized....so, I had a friend of mine inlay a silver plate into the ivory so I could get his initials engraved on it....well....you may find this hard to believe,....but finding someone who WILL engrave on a piece of silver that is embedded in ivory on a pool cue is damn near impossible....until last night, that is....during the pre-drunk conversation, one young lady mentioned that her father was a master jeweler, or something like that....and he engraved stuff by hand...so, I mentioned the pool cue....and she said that her Father could do it for me...and she gave me her number....see?...anyway, it is going to cost me a damn FORTUNE to get it engraved...but at least that monkey will be finally off my back....somehow, the words "master jeweler" should never be used when my cash is involved...not even at Christmas...

God has a hard-on for marine because we kill everything we see! He plays His games, we play ours! To show out appreciation for so much power, we keep Heaven packed with fresh soulds! God was here before the Marine Corps! So you can give your heart to Jesus, but your ass belongs to the Corps!
Merry Christmas, Jarhead!

Merry Christmas, Eric. Macallan. Damn. In my version of Paradise 72 virgins' nipples ooze Macallan.

Dont compare this most recent message with the earlier one. I read a clear sign, an at-this-point open door in that message; she is already looking into the future, and doesnt want anything to stand in the way. That is an invitation, for sure. Girls do not do that if they arent interested in some way. Of course, anything can happen later, but at this point the sun is shining on an open road, and we all know that That can lead Anywhere!

Merry X-Mas

Eric, hope you're having the happiest of holidays.

Talisker is more my style, but if the purpose is enebriation rather than appreciation then Clan MacGregor is good enough.

Anywho, I hope that all who read this had a merry Christmas and proceed to have a happy New Year.
