A busy week coming up for yours truly. The penultimate week of my regular school program, so kids are getting all their work in ahead of finals, and the course I’m teaching at night because the district ran out of subs starts their novel. I chose “Of Mice & Men” because even though it’s a socialist allegory & a sausage fest, it’s just over 100 pages, making it the smallest “novel” available to teach, and I’m all about making my life easier.


Tonight’s sports:

  • MLB:
    • Yankees at Mets – 8:00PM | ESPN / TSN
  • NCAA Baseball: Super Regionals
    • Game 3: Mississippi State at Vanderbilt – 6:00PM | ESPN2
    • Game 2: Duke at Texas Tech – 6:00PM | ESPNU
    • Game 3: Minnesota at Oregon State – 9:00PM | ESPN2
    • Game 3: Washington at Cal State (Fullerton) – 9:00PM | ESPNU

Only one week of baseball until we get the World Cup. WE MIGHT JUST MAKE IT!

Random tip: if you have a really stinky pair of sneakers, douse them in isopropyl alcohol (it only took about a half a cup for mine) and seal them in a plastic bag for a few hours, then dry them in the sun. It really worked wonders for mine.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

So here’s a conundrum: I need to cut back on drinking, but I’ve been upgraded on tonight’s flight.

Mr. Ayo
Mr. Ayo

There’s always time later for cutting back.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

I’ll take things a moyel has never said for $400, Alex

King Hippo

you need to set a high bar so you can pat yourself on the back later for successfully cutting back

Heart Shaped Box this week. I am way too concerned with the player piano music selections

yeah right

I was partial to the Wu Tang drop during the Shogun World episode. Tonight was a great episode.

Senor Weaselo

You just got me into a Legend of 1900 mood.

(Here’s actually Jelly Roll playing his piece.)

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Verdict on the Costco enchiladas: chicken was great, sauce was also quite good. Tortillas were pretty weak, though.

yeah right

Reconstituted tortillas don’t usually hold up.
Important cooking tip!

How lazy is Brick Meathook?

I spent the afternoon at three different stores testing recliners and I’m exhausted. Plus I ate half a cow and that took some effort, lifting the fork and so forth.

I guess it’s time to get high and have another bubble bath. It’s a wonder I remember to breathe.

Senor Weaselo

As long as you get high, then the bath, not get high on the materials for the bath.

King Hippo

wait until you spend the better part of tomorry morning trying to shit out said half cow!

That was basically the plot of the movie Gamer.

Brick Meathook

Hey I put the game in Gamer.

True story: before it was released, it’s title was briefly Citizen Game, which everyone agreed was a really horrible name.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

(figured I’d let you mention that yourself – didn’t want to inadvertently dox you or anything)

Brick Meathook
Brick Meathook

Thanks for that consideration, but it’s time for the truth to get out. I’m not only the director of Gamer, I’m both of them. We are “Brick Meathook,” which is a stupid name that wasn’t my idea. It wasn’t my idea either you wanted it. I didn’t want it I wanted something much cooler than that. No way asshole it was totally your idea all the stupid ideas are yours. Shut up dickhead you couldn’t direct traffic down a one way street without me I carry you. Oh fuck off you pretentious douchebag why don’t you just wear an ascot and shove your

yeah right

Holy hell Alex Rodriguez is bloody awful at announcing.

It’s like they wanted to surround Jessica Mendoza with the two biggest dopes in the world to make her seem like a complete seasoned professional.

OMG ALL 3 SEASONS OF BOURNISTON ARE ON U.S. NETFLIX!!!

litre_cola

Really? Weird they were on up here for the last couple of years. Usually US Netflix is way better.

ballsofsteelandfury

Nope. This is the first time I’ve seen it. It must have gotten added this month. All this time, i’d been relying on YouTube uploads.

I’m pretty sure Canadian Netflix is better for British/ Australian/ Commonwealth shows…

litre_cola

Yeah we do have a lot of UK programming on ours.

Wakezilla

Never heard of it, but based on Litre’s link, Imma go check it out

Senor Weaselo

The Dirt Giants know they’re not obligated to spot the Dirt Jets a run or two, even if it’s to be sporting. Right?

King Hippo

after winning big on the two Dirt Giants comebacks, I actually bet on the Jets from the jump tonight. But yes, I insurance bet after the Frazier home run.

Gratliff

Realizing I didn’t watch Westworld last week. Sweet, 2 hours of goodness.

King Hippo

Your brain must be way stronger than mines if it can absorb 2 hours in one sitting, though. 😀

I mean, you are very old

beautiful little happy Sunday night song:

Brick Meathook

I’m at this strange shack south of downtown L.A. in the forbidden zone. I can’t tell what language everyone is speaking but it ain’t English, and all the writing is crazy weird. They walked a cow to my table and shot it right there. Then they dragged it away and came back with this:

That’s probably close to my work! Hook a brother up if the cow tastes good!

Is it Barbecue King on Vermont?

Looks more like Maryanne’s Barbecue to me

Senor Weaselo

It’s in the Barbecue District on 4th?

Brick Meathook

Nope. You’re a purist you’d hate this place.

WCS

Is Ovie going to die of alcohol poisoning before, during, or immediately after the victory parade?

King Hippo

Has a Rooskie ever reached their alcohol maximum?

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

The real question is if he destroys the Stanley Cup while doing so.

WCS

I remember Pens goaltender Tom Barrasso broke it jumping into Mario Lemuiex’s pool in 1992.

Senor Weaselo

Yes.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

[squeals] THESE ENCHILADAS CONTAIN SODIUM BENZOATE!

That’s bad

(through half of face): Can I go now?

Gratliff

I have, um, a lot of concerns about Chris Jericho’s new look in NJPW. I can’t tell if he’s letting the unprecedented and largely undeserved success of Fozzy go to his head, or if he’s just taken one too many chairs to the face.

Is he a Juggalo?

No, sir. That’s a Jerichoholic.

I don’t understand wrestling.

Gratliff

He was feuding with Bill Goldberg at the end of his WCW run, who always came out of his locker room to a police escort, so Jericho found himself a reasonable facsimile thereof.

Pennywise really let fame go to his head, didn’t he?

He’d have him. He’d have him all night!

PUA culture is very 2007 but if Jericho wants to bring that back, good for him.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

I feel conflicted that I have such complete and utter disdain for PUA culture and yet here I am doing this bit with my stories for each country in the World Cup.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Tonight we are going to try some enchiladas we bought from Costco that were made with leftover roast chicken. Fingers crossed!

LemonJello
LemonJello

Is “leftover roast chicken” on the packaging or are you just guessing?

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

No, it says so. The top ingredient is “cooked chicken meat”.

Gratliff

The chicken tikka masala was very good and my house smells amazing, and I expect to be completely sick of the smell by tomorrow.

I had a (wet) dream that trump lost his passport while at this G7 conference and the US border agents wouldn’t let him back in the country, and the world smiled.

blaxabbath

Been on a tear clearing out the garage today. My goodness we have a lot shit. Just shit.

So now I’m bring my temp down and watching Wayne’s World 2 on Amazon Prime.

Gratliff

The boy decided on his own to start packing up toys he didn’t want anymore to give away. Hot Wheels era is officially over, thoughts and prayers. There are 3 big ass boxes full of a shocking amount of plastic bullshit that I’ve probably spent a year’s salary on at this point. Fuck toys.

We kept all the Legos and Thomas the Tank Engine stuff in the event we have grand kids…but I don’t even want to know how much money I’ve sunk into Barbies, Star Wars, and Polly Pockets.

Shit. Now I want to drink…

Gratliff

There’s a sea of legos in that fucking room. There’s so much money invested in those fucking things I’d probably murder him on principle if he gave them away.

oh dear God, when I downsized houses I had to rent a dumpster TWICE to throw all that shite away. AND rent a storage unit for what got kept.

2026 World Cup announcement on Wednesday. It turn 50 that year, was going to be a present to myself. I am going to watch a game in Edmonton or Columbus instead of Morocco arent I?

ballsofsteelandfury

I sincerely hope so.

litre_cola

Fuck that. I guess I will look to go to Mexico then. I really wanted to go back to Morocco

King Hippo

Morocco would be cool as fuck

Don T

Depends. Does FIFA take bribes in loonies?

Wakezilla

NAFTA bid is the favorite, but, with so many cities pulling out, Morocco should have a punchers chance

ballsofsteelandfury

The kids have to read a novel and write a report about it in two weeks while finals are going on?

That’s pretty fucked up right there, Canadian Educational System!

Not to mention the World Cup starting…

nomonkeyfun

Well, they had to leave the calendar open earlier to celebrate a Canadian team winning the Stanley Cup.

litre_cola

That shit hasn’t happened since 1993 when I was in high school!
