WOO HOOO! Its finally here. I can finally wake up a little later to go to…my…other..job…daaammmmit.

Oh well, like I said, I don’t dislike it at all.  If I had my way i would do it for my career and and not have to deal with my current job situation.  But whatever, its how it goes. I can’t wait for the “I have a new job” post that will inevitably wind up on here, but today is not that day.  That will be a wonderous day.

So after 11 gillion promos I decided to check out hole in the wall.  It is exactly what it sounds like, people trying to fit through holes.  And it…is…AMMMAZING!  It is seriously one of the most hilarious shows i’ve ever seen (withought having to use my big ol’ brain). Its just that, over and over.  People just getting knocked into a pool by a fucking giant wall with an oddly shaped hole in it.  It’s either gonna last forever, or be cancelled after two days, depending on the cough syrup consumption of america.

I have a birthday to go to in the city tomorrow, and I kinda wanna crash on someones couch to make getting to work easier on sunday, but I avoid confrontation at all costs, so i don’t want to ask beforehand. Would it be bad if i just showed up to the party with a bag containing a clean shirt, deodorant and a toothbrush and just hope for the best?  This line of thinking could get me in trouble.

Hey, remember this? Fuck!

So yeah, its weekend time.  I’m crashing extraordinarily hard after eating pizza and I need to zone out and stare at the screen all while trying very hard not to pass out and fall out of my chair.  Should be a fun time!


So its Friday

And i’m too pooped to think about doing anything (haha…pooped).  I got really drunk last night and I just don’t feel like doing anything tonight, but I have to.  Thats also why I haven’t gotten around to regailing you with hilarious ramblings on whatever is passing thru my mind.  There’s nothing there, i’m a blank slate.

I could tell you about my free slurpee, but there’s nothing more than “i got a free slurpee.”  I could tell you all about my night, but this post sums it up (i did exactly the same thing.  even the wasted part).  Thats about it for now.  Hopefully I collect some hilarious stories for you this weekend.  Happy Friday and enjoy the BEST MUSIC VIDEO EVER!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh Yeah

It’s friday!

You know what that means, it means i’m gonna go out and have a sane time. Wait, thats not right. I’m gonna have a crazy time. My little younger (he is most certainly no longer little) brother is coming to the city tonight. We have plans to go to the Belmont Stakes tomorrow, but hopefully the 90 degree heat will deter him from going and we can drink outdoors in a more enjoyable setting.

But we’ll deal with that tomorrow. Until then:

It’s my favorite day of the week, again!  I will actually be enjoying this friday in the city for once, which should be fun.  Supposedly I’m supposed to go to this place tonight

Well the real one, not the virtual one for GTA IV. (someone please get that for me).

According to the weather report window it’s not looking so hot outside.   But that might just mean there are less people there.  I own a raincoat, so fuck it.  I suppose it all depends on other people tho.

I am somewhat hungover today, but thats not what is really bugging me.  It took me almost two hours to get home last night.  At midnight!  It was awful.  I hate when they mess with the trains during the week.  I don’t check for that, especially while drunk.  Only switch shit around on weekends from now on MTA!  You hear me.

I Realized Something

I write more about not having anything to write about then anything else.  Is that a weird topic?  Writing about writers block.  It worked for Charlie Kaufman.

I’ve been in a serious snacking mood lately.  I usually try not to snack all that much, but recently I feel like I make at least two trips to a vending machine a day.  I’m pretty sure thats a fairly unhealthy habit.  Oh well, not my most unhealthy!

So I finally have some books to read, which is a good thing.  I know you were all worried sick so now you can rest easy.

For the first time in years I know what I am doing several weekends in advance.  I usually don’t know what I’m doing in the next 20 minutes, let alone 20 days.  This is pure craziness!

I’m still on my high school music kick.  I think i need some serious help if I am going to get back to the current era in music.  Someone give me something fun to listen to now! Maybe if some music blogs updated more I’d have something to listen to.

I’ve kind of mentioned this before, but isn’t it weird how crazy the warmer weather makes everyone go.  I’d be interesting to find out how much alcohol sales at lunch on friday goes up at places in the city between May and August.  I’m guessing somewhere in the neighborhood of a whole shitload.

I mentioned I have to go home to Connecticut this weekend.  Ordinarily that’s not so bad, but the reasons that are brining me home are less then desirable.   Luckily, this will be there!  Which will be fucking awesome.  I also just found out a friend from high school is back in town, so I’ll be able to hang out with friends.  That is always a plus.

Did anyone see that Jason Taylor danced to the Monday Night Football theme on Dancing With The Stars?  That…is…awwwwwwwwwwwful.  Oh dear lord, I’m glad i don’t watch that show as a guilty pleasure, because the guilt of seeing that live would have been to difficult for my Irish ass to handle.

So Mariah Carey got married…whats that?  Oh yeah, still don’t care.  I’m sure some of you do tho, so here is a link.

Speaking of not caring, this post on BestWeekEver made me laugh out loud.

I think I’m out of short little useless things to write.  So here is a funny video!

Hey, Ratatouille looks different!

On Visiting Boston

Posted in books, boston, drinking, fridays, random, rants on April 28, 2008 by pgleason85

So I was up in Boston this past weekend. If you read my updates from amtrak you know that certain parts of the trip up did not go exactly as planned (damn you acela…damn you!!!)

So unfortunately my Friday night was much shorter then anticipated. Fortunately I can still knock back whiskey, so it turned out okay.

Saturday was a bit of a long day, but still fun. Went to lunch at a bar called Bukowski‘s, which has to be the best name for a bar of all time, for various reasons.

Following lunch we traveled to South Boston to go on the Harpoon brewery tour. This is the best brewery tour of all time. Most brewery tours have a tour that is boring and pointless, followed by a tasting which is all anyone wanted anyway. The Harpoon tour skips the actual tour part, and just gives you beer. They take a break to talk about all the beers, but essentially it is just a free drink up with good beer.

After that we went to Legal Test Kitchen. We were told they had two dollar PBR’s, but when we walked in this place looked way to fancy to have this. I mean, this looked like a 15 dollar Martini place, no way they would have 2 dollar PBR’s.

They had two dollar PBR’s. And they put the Yankee game on for us. It really threw a bunch of people there for a loop with 5 Yankee fans and an Indians fan cheering at the game in the corner. Its a site not often witnessed in Boston. It was at this point called ballsy by a bartender for wearing a Yankee hat.

After a full day of drinking it was time to get ready for a full night of drinking(well till 2am anyway). It was at this point I was called ballsy by a Starbucks barista for wearing a Yankee hat. I was beginning to sense a pattern, which came to a head when a car pulled over to boo me. Keep in mind that it is April.

So after all that we decided that Harvard would be where we would go out. I met a wonderful gentleman who insisted that Sicilian Slices were not actually Pizza because they were “FACKIN SQUAAH.” I was worried i wouldn’t meet a stereotype reinforcer, so that was nice.

Sunday involved walking through all the areas of Boston that I didn’t get to see because I was only there for a single weekend. So after walking through back bay and downtown crossing and get on my train, wait, check that, I waited a half hour and then got on the train. That makes sense that a train would be late to its station of origin. At least I had enough time to read to books, unfortunately they were the only books that I had, so now this problem applies again. . .fuck!

(note: I don’t think I saw that part of Boston in that photo above, at all)

Its Friday Suckas!

Friday has come, yet again. Honestly, I would complain about how slow my week was and how long it took for friday to get here, but that would be a lie. My life is moving at an alarming pace. I’m actually starting to freak out a little bit about it.

I really can’t believe its almost been a year since I graduated college. Its moving way to fast. There are people I talked to on a daily basis for years that I haven’t seen in six months….if i keep going down this line of thought I am going to get depressed, so I need something happy.

Ah, going to Boston tonight is happy. I’ve actually never really been to Boston. I mean, I’ve been to Boston, but I’ve never gone up there to go out and stuff. I’m not sure what to expect.  I’m told its fun, but I’m also told that you can get beat up for no apparent reason.   I am told that drinking large quantities of alcohol is the norm, so i think I’ll be okay.

I have to take Amtrak up, which is a huge bummer.  I hear its just an awful experience that is no fun for anyone.  But we will see how that goes.  It is time for me to get some food.  I am freaking starving.  But to keep the mood up around here, how about you listen to some Less Than Jake!!
