Your “I hope you’ve been good ’cause you’re getting a treat today” Open Thread

Oh kids.  OH KIDS!  We have a special treat for you.  Today is the day that our own Make It Snow live tweets as he plays Oregon Trail.  This is an annual tradition even more hallowed than the Masters with the benefit of no Jim Nantz and no formalized sexism/racism.

Also, no pants.

Last year, I made a Storify with all of his tweets.  To get you properly hyped and ready, please click HERE to read last year’s account. I think my favorite tweet was this one:

Also, this exchange was fucking funny:

Those of you that have Twitter, if you don’t follow him, here is his live twitter feed:

Two things are different this year from last:

1- Make It Snow is going to play Amazon Trail instead of Oregon Trail.  As you may remember, he actually achieved his lifetime goal of making it to California WITH a grandfather clock last year, so he is now seeking new challenges.

2- I will be live-embedding the tweets here and updating the post as we go along!

I’ll be posting them in chronological order so that you can start at the top and work your way down instead of reading upwards like the Twitter feed makes you do. This will also enable those of you that do not have Twitter to join in the fun.  And, of course, to make funny comments.  The action starts at 3 PM DFO time!

Once it starts, it may be fast and furious, so refresh the page often.

Here we GO!

For the record, that was a Jags joke,  not a Make It Snow joke.

Two young cute white girls at the coffee shop this morning seated at the table next to me. I hadn’t initially paid any attention to them but when the one with the aqua hair got her breakfast wrapped and said, “Do you have any salsa that isn’t the verde? Like, do you have the stuff like the rojo?”

So then I decided to keep an ear open.

About five minutes later is a nice “I know this is going to sound racist but…” and she leans in to her friend and about ten seconds later they both jerk back in their chairs laughing harder than anyone else in the place.

“I know this is going to sound racist but” I take my coffee the way I take my men, black.

I like my women the same way I like my coffee, hot and spilled all over my lap while I curse and scream in pain.

Blacked – that means they censor out the naughty bits, but it’s otherwise SFW, right?

I have no idea who this is and I’m sure it’s merely a coincidence if her last name is a color. I’ve never seen this woman before in my life…I swear!!!! Even if she does have a boy’s name. It’s just a coincidence that I know these things. I swear.

(pssst…see ya later, Alex)

Rangers are probably going to make their new free agent signing an assistant captain, so they can have Paul Carey-A on the team.

I read that “River of Doubt” book about Teddy Roosevelt. Methinks this is as seminal a moment in snow’s life, and that hot-ass Candice Millard should write a book about him too.

I have to leave shortly to go to the dump and then the gym. Who will sweat more or smell worse 2 hours from now, me or Makeitsnow’s avatar in the game?

Spoiler alert, it’ll be me. That character’s gonna be long dead by then.

Wow, you are going to the dump and I have to go take a dump. It’s like we have some sort of mystical connection!

So what time does this shitshow start? I recently watched Fitzcarraldo so I’m expecting someone to haul a steamship over a cliff or there will be hell to pay.

What I learned: Make it Snow kills bear babies, and Lady Snow is disturbingly OK with this.

But at least now I’m properly hyped and ready. GO!!!!
