If you’ve read this, then you were treated to ballsofsteelandfury and myself discussing the finer points of surfing earlier today. And you also already know I’m at the beach this week.
You also ALSO know that among other things this week, I’ve been getting back to surfing. It’s been a while since I last surfed before this week. And honestly I am very sore and very tired at this moment. But in a really good way. Been sleeping good this week, too.
Honestly, before my arrival I had been hoping for hurricaney type swells, but Irma veered the wrong way and left me hanging mostly other than early Monday. Women, huh? Meh, probably just as well. I don’t need help doing stupid stuff and putting myself at risk. I got plenty, maybe even more than I bargained for on Monday. It’s all good Irma.
It’s been a great week, truth be told. Very relaxing. I’m already getting bummed out that I have to go home in two days. Oh well.
But not surprisingly probably, our theme this week is Surf Chicks.
Our musical selections tonight just happen to be songs which remind me of the beach in general, or have “significance” for a particular past trip to a coast. This first one is one of the latter, FWIW….
As is the second.
Now Imma go get (moar) baked and then in a little while, write the rest of this.
Don’t get excited, it won’t be much.
tWBS’ “I’m Totally Not Baked” Filler
Really, I’m not. At least not yet. But I have mellowed some. It’s all about degrees.
Which is a good thing because concurrent with my stay here at this moderately appointed beach resort, is a massive influx of inbred redneck types who are apparently marrying one cousin off to another this weekend. And I am literally right smack in the middle of their block of rooms, which seems to be every other room but mine at this point.
I’ve already been invited to the reception, and was already considering it (free booze) even before laying eyes on the wedding planner later in the day. She is obviously not related to this crew, so that’s a point in her favor.
But that’s tomorrow. Tonight, surfing.
When you read this later, I hope to be in the water.
As I said already, I’m not in the wedding tomorrow. But later tonight, I do hope to be in the wedding planner. But that’s another story entirely. We’ll see what her “plans” are.
((I am so going to hell))
Sports Which Make You Wanna Get Away
Last night, the nation was treated to its second TNF game of the 2017 season. And I use the word “treated“ very lightly. But as ugly as it was, it was still football. I think. Texans manage to not fuck up Christmas in September, accept the gift win over the Bungles, deserved or not…13-9 is the final (oy!!!!).
Ain’t talking ’bout nobody this week but Cleveland. Holee Molee those dudes are crushing it. In case you haven’t heard, the Cleveland Indians currently have a 22 game win streak ongoing. To put that into perspective, it is the longest MLB win streak in the last 101 years, and the second longest in EVAR. Rarified air, to be sure.
And they’re feeling it now. They were down to their last strike last night, but managed to tie, then win in extra frames…
Of course, baseball nerds will still find reasons to argue no matter what happens. But everyone will be keeping an eye on Cleveland for the next day or so. And not for a bad reason.

A few games tonight, a buttload tomorrow.

- Arizona at UTEP – 10:00pmEDT – TV: ESPN
So Like I Already Said Earlier, Surf Chicks
Generally speaking, Surf Chicks are a somewhat different breed. Tough of mind and body, while also accepting and open-minded. We really like that. It’s a pretty cool mix, if I’m being honest.
Otherwise, they’re girls just like other girls.
And we like that, too.
/ballsofsteelandfury’s head explodes
Awwwwwww, and now I’m sad again. Slightly wider framed to the left would have shown my home away from home a few months ago at Venice Beach. Oh well. Photographer was probably high and distracted by ass. It happens, or so I’ve heard.
Gotta Give You A tWBS Original This Week
I took this shot at dawn on Monday, 11 September, 2017, just before hitting the beach proper and preparing to surf or die…LOL.
OK then….Later Taters
Have a nice night, and a nice weekend, my friends.
Do you have a “request” or an idea for a future TGISF theme? Drop me a line…
