The official Miller Christmas Eve Extravaganza with Guitar Hero (tm) will start sometime shortly after nightfall. In fact, Brian and I might start grilling out around 5pm ish. So come over whenever. This means you, Pam and Liz.

Actually, I believe PPF coined the WD Douchebag name...I just copied her genius.

And I believe that I did have a rather clever text to you recently. See below:

WD-(or so it appeared...apparently it was not): God! I love cock!

KQ: Doug! Did you finally run out of women to sleep with??

Beep I am funny dammit! I am! beep

PS...If I bring extra-strength rum balls to christmas eve will that make everything better?

Note to Pam:

Pam, my dearest. I'm sorry it had to come to this. I could think of no other way to break the news to you. I am truly sorry if I have hurt you.

If you makes you feel better (note: it won't), Liz discovered the blog on her own just after I started it. So it's not like I have been hiding it from any of you. I just felt that now might be the right time to share it with you.

There are no txts from you because your best -- and most cuttingly insulting -- work tends to be done over voicemail.

B33p B33p
Note to Killer Queen:

What I meant to say is, most of you who are either funny or have a tendency to drunkenly message me already made it to the greattxts blog. Guess that means either you are not funny or you hate freedom.

Beep Yeah, I'm kinda surprised Brian hasn't made an appearance in the blog too Beep

PS - You called me straight out "douchebag?" Looks like I know who's getting coal in their bourbon on Christmas Eve!

Note to slightly bored office dwellers:

I've been cheating on you with another blog. It's been all my own doing so far, and it's of text messages that I think are too funny to delete without saving somewhere. Anyhow, it's called great txts. Take a look if you're interested. Each entry is really short and hopefully kind of funny.

Beep oh yeah, many of you are already in there, fyi Beep
Note to A-Rod Haters (incl. me):

This might be the most succinctly brilliant thing FJM has ever had to say about A-Rod. I mean, I might think he's a money grubbing bastard who screwed the city of Seattle by leaving town and then bitched about life in Texas at $25 million per year, but he is a damn good baseball player.

(Side note: Sky, is his fielding at third really below league average now, or are the haters just trying to find a new venue to hate?)

Beep The fact that he re-signed with the Yanks cost me two tickets to Sabres vs Rangers... and those ain't cheap Beep

Check out this FJM write-up.

I kind of want to go on a rant about being a libertarian right now, but instead I'll just say that I find it very difficult to have respect for anyone who writes a book or an article or a treatise on "purity." They always seem to have skeletons in the closet along the lines of "do as I say and try not to pay attention while I am nailing my wife's best friend." Or in this case "while Roger injects horse steroids into my ass."

Beep If you are sure that all of us godless northeastern liberals are going to hell, why can't you just shut up about it and wait to gloat until we get there Beep
Note to Capones:

Will you go to Pam's concert if I am there?

Beep Will that line keep working if I use it every week? Who wants to write me some new material? Beep.

Note to PPF:

"Hose" are those wretchedly uncomfortable things that my in-laws insist on buying me for Christmas every year that I promptly either throw out, or donate to some needy, hose-less person, because I hate them with every fiber of my being (seriously, do I look like a girl would would wear "hose"?) Although I did recently purchase a rather cute pair of printed "stockings" which are decidedly different than "hose"...but I digress... I think you should let them know exactly where they can put their "hose". I think your best bet is a nice "skort" or "culottes" which would have everyone fooled...What about a mini-skirt with leggings? I hear that is quite fashionable amongst the kids nowadays.

Also, I am trying to convince Cory we should come to your concert. I don't know if my efforts are going to be successful, but I am trying.

Beep Chuck Norris eats "hose" for breakfast beep.

John Edwards probably has the best stance on education, because he's decidedly anti-NCLB...

Note to Pam:

Wear whatever you want. Just tell them that it's not the 1970s and Boston isn't a recently co-ed-ified institution where female singers must wear proper attire in order to prove their worth. If they look at you funny, just tell them to "Suck It" and go to your spot in the "U." I mean seriously, who wears black "hose" unless it's a corporate holiday party?

Beep Chuck Norris would tell them to Suck It Beep
Note to KQ:

One of my favorite Critter moments was when FCster, PPF, myself and Critter were attending a sporting event at Fenway. Upon returning from the ladies room, I informed PPF that "Critter had gone to buy beer." She replied "Thats Critter!?" with what appeared to be a mixture of both shock and awe, perhaps thinking of the many stories WD had related to her of their time as sketchy frat boys in a otherwise dull one stop light town in central NY, while at the same time trying to reconcile this with the first impression she had a of a somewhat innocuous fellow who had introduced himself with his relatively boring real name.

Beep Moral? MD-PhD at fancy Boston establishment of higher learning. Unsure how he is at paddle tennis. Beep.

Wednesday, December 12, 2007

Note to other women:

Am I being unreasonable? I'm am extremely irritated because I just got an email from my a cappella group saying attire for women at our concert tomorrow is black *skirts* and "hose."

I get extremely agitated and feministic when people tell me I *HAVE* to wear a skirt. Especially in WINTER. And WTF is "hose?"

In my last post, I made a reference to Justin Timerlake and his subsequent dreaminess. However, I have since realized that I made a grave error in that Justin Timberlake was not, in fact, a memeber of the Backstreet Boys, who were also prominently featured in the aforementioned post, but was actually a member of the rival boy-band, N'sync. Although I know the damage I caused with my carelessness cannot be undone, I hope you all can find it in your hearts to accept my sincere apology and forgive me for any emotional distress I may have caused.

Note to All:

The wedding in Philly was a rousing success, including the kick ass reception on an old school paddle boat cruising the Delaware River. I quickly made friends with the open bar bar wenches, who fed me a steady diet of double grey goose and tonics all night. (D1 would be proud.)

Unfortunately, we were unable to defy the odds and make it through the wedding without injury. As we were getting off the shuttle bus at the hotel after the reception, I was talking to Liz when I noticed that she was no longer behind me. As I turned around to see why she was held up, one of the girls shouted out "Oh no, Liz is down." At this point, I realized that I had lost Liz because she had taken a digger trying to get down the 4 steps from the shuttle (which was a trolley) and that she was sprawled out on said stairs carrying an arm-full of broken flowers.

Luckily, she was okay, and quickly bounced up. Damages included several scrapes and bruises, but nothing really too hurt and no scene caused by the fall. Overall, hell of a party.

Beep My dance moves either impressed or horrified Liz's friends... it's such a fine line Beep

Jen, you get your style guide if you make the Dorthwoth playoffs.

Doug, guess I'm too late on football advice. If not, modifying rankings based on league rules is really important.

Doug and Liz, just don't BOTH die, deal?

Doug, I'm saving up my taunts in order to justify the kickass victory dance/feast/virginal sacrifice I have planned.

Note to Sky:

Given the injury-racked summers that Liz and I have both had (see: broken hand, broken toe, numerous scars, etc.), what do you think the chances are of us surviving Saturday's boat-based wedding reception without at least one of us receiving a a major flesh wound or taking an unexpected dip in the river?

My fantasy football draft is next Wednesday, and as per normal I am trying to skate through it without doing much of my own research or planning (aside from buying plenty of whiskey for the event). So -- any thoughts on sleepers I should look for and people that must be taken within teh first two rounds?

Beep Jen's in my league, so make sure she doesn't find out I asked you guys Beep
Note to Sky and Brian:

I agree with Liz and Pam, and am willing to declare this attempt at securing our identities and making sure that we are electable in our old age a failure. Frank and Jen don't yet have voting privileges, and Kate... well, you know... so anyhow, if you guys agree then we can bring sexy (our RSS feed) back. What do you want to do?

Beep This is the lamest beep beep thread ever, so lets finish this and move on to funnier things. Like the Seahawks chances of making the playoffs. Beep

Re: No. 1, who is this "Jen" person?

Beep It didn't tell me what to do with them, Schooler beep!
Note to All:

Several things of interest on the Beep Beep blog front, all of which I'll take care of b/c Sky made me an admin sometime long long ago. And probably regrets it.

1. I am inviting one Jen Adams, a.k.a., Rubber Buns and Liquor, to join the Beep Beep blog. Most of you know her from her fine work in verbal and written sarcasm in New York City over the last year, or from her stellar performance at MillerStock 2k7: Los Dos Vomitos. If you want to check up on some of her previous work, she posts to her own snarky blog here, and to a hockey blog (yes, hockey) over here.

Sky pointed out that she doesn't know Frank and Matty, and might not know Pam and Liz that well despite the MillerStock action, but he didn't exercise veto power, so she's in.

2. To make Brian happy, I am switching access to this blog to authors and authorized personnel only. To get a lurker friend of yours added to the authorized list, just ask Sky or I.

3. I'm going to spearhead the Frank situation by re-inviting his ass and then sending him a snarky email and text message combination. If that doesn't get him moving, I will move on to voicemail taunting and text message bombing. Heh heh heh.

4. I'll try to post something ridiculously funny tonight. So funny it will make Matty snarf milk out of his tampon holder nose.

I think that's it. Now I am going to follow thru on the above action items and head home. Some of the Hello Kitchen people are headed to Luna Park for drinks and dinner. I hate that place, but I might join them anyways. Or maybe I'll do something totally cool I haven't even thought of yet...

Beep I know D. Nick hates long beep beep posts, but he can suck it Beep
Note to Liz:

Your guide to dating didn't tell you about hook-up privileges?

Beep I hope Nina's marriage goes to hell Beep
Note to Jen (et al):

I have hook up privileges? Why didn't anybody alert me to this sooner?

Beep Boston :( beep
Notes to Doug:

1) I don't see Jen on the list to the right.

2) As was discussed the last day of millerstock, I have not hooked up with any member of the McK___ family, or with Jen for that matter. FcSter is not likely to cut me off.

3) Therefore, that is an empty threat.

Beep Unrelated question: should we think about moving this to another platform? Beep.
Note to Jen:

Doug said he's going to revoke your hookup privileges if your fantasy baseball team continues to suck.

Beep I HATE how that threat totally only works in one direction. Damn you, women. Beep
Note to All:

I've been put on notice by Jen that unless we all want our hook-up privileges revoked immediately, that we need to stop talk about D & D and go back to being funny. I take this as a challenge and can't wait to bring the pain. As soon as I sober up from last night.

Beep Can somebody just email Frank and tell him to start Beep Beeping? Beep

Friday, July 27, 2007

Note to Sky:

I didn't email since I couldn't be sure that 2d6 wasn't for 3rd edition only, as my 1st and 2nd edition books burned in a fire.

Beep Beep.
Note to FireCrotchester:

It doesn't look like Frank has even activated his posting privileges. Unless, that is, he is posting under the name "Kate".

Beep beep!
Note to Geeks:

Brian wanted to point out that a 2-handed sword rolls 2d6, not 1d12. Sure, different audience, but that's got to gain him some ground on Pammy in the geek-off, no?

Beep What do you roll for a dagger? Beep
Note to those concerned:

I just applied to work part-time at basically all the Wegmans and Starbucks on the east side of Rochester. You don't need a crappy resume for those jobs!

Beep Yes, Doug had this idea months ago Beep

Note to Frank:

Be funny. Now. We can revoke your posting privileges.

Beep Yes, that's a threat Beep

Note to sports fans:

From Bill Simmons' chat today...

AK (Chicago): Who's more NOW, You or Ronald Jenkees?

Bill Simmons: I'd say Jenkees. Also, I called Time Warner to ask them for the ESPN package that didn't involve "Who's more now?" and they said it doesn't exist. So I think we're stuck with it.

If Frank were an official Beep Beeper, he'd so agree this was hilarious.

Beep Does Kate think it's funny? Beep

Tuesday, July 10, 2007

Note to Pam:

Wow, good catch. I always sucked at proofreading;)

Note to All:

I vote that Frank's application only be considered if he applies in person in Cherry Creek.

Note to dictator-for-life Brian:

Surely you mean "...entirely composed of quiet cars and bar cars?"

Beep Choo Choo? Beep
Note to all:

When I become dictator for life, all the highway money is going to build actual superfast trains entirely composed of quiet cars. Municipal wifi will be extended, even to the leafy suburbs of the Roc.

Note to Bostonites:

Sky and Brian have successfully drank there way through two days in NYC, including playing wiffle ball yesterday afternoon, drinking dark beer with Nathan on Saturday afternoon, and even finding some time for rooftop cups and late night guitar hero. They are now en route to Boston, and are all yours for a few days.

Note to Brian:

Depends where you want to work. Brigham & Women's? Brookline, Brighton, or maybe even Allston. Cambridge near MIT? Kendall, maybe Central if you can find an ok place. Harvard? Harvard Sq., Porter, Inman, Union, Davis. Same answers for Tufts. It seems like a lot of private research can be found in Cambridge, too. But you don't want to take a job in the Longwood area and find a place in Somerville. Not that the commute's all that bad - it certainly doesn't stop yours truly from hanging out with Miss Piccola-Fales and the good doctor - but it's not something you'll want to be doing during rush hour.

Although Pammy could probably give you a better idea as to the bus service.

Beep beep!

Note to some:

So, what areas of Boston should I be looking in?

Beep Beep.

Sunday, June 24, 2007

Note to Brian 2.0:

Holy shit man. Brian 2.0 is clearly a very restrained and magnanimous young man, or my guess is that crazy downstairs neighbor man would be in a shallow grave by now.

But yes, Boston would be an excellent destination.

Beep Beep

Saturday, June 23, 2007

Note to Brian:

Oh, dear lord. Are you okay?

You should clearly come to Boston. Specifically, Davis or Porter Squares.

But seriously - are you alright?

Beep Jesus H! beep!

New Brian is gone. Brian 2.0 will be moving (1); where should he move?

(1)Because crazy downstairs neighbor guy set the house on fire. Yes, really.

Note to W:

That is a fine plan.

Perhaps Mr. Crotchester would care to share his thoughts?

Beep I could try calling, but we all know how that would go ;) Beep.
Note to Brian and Sky:

Our latest groom-to-be, Bradford "Q-Tip" Shattuck, has expressed interest in coming to NYC the weekend of June 30/July 1st if you two will be here. Is it just me, or does this sound like the start of a great plan?

Beep And by "great plan" I mean "at least one of us will end up in jail" Beep

Note to Matty Y and Brian:

I had an ENT appointment today with a doc who (gasp) actually seems (a) competent, (b) willing to explain things, and (c) not senile. I am pretty excited about tackling my tinnitus and the possibly-related sinus swelling, and so it she. And, although it was not mentioned in today's planning session, I feel like there is a real possibility of me getting the Dr. Nick-desired sinus scan in the very near future.

Beep When she saw the amount of swelling in my right nostril, I am pretty sure she swore Beep

Notes to W:

Will there be drinking?

Can I coax Sky out of his cave for yet another ipod jack & EZpass less roadtrip?

Beep Beep.
Note to Dr. Nick:

Last night, I was involved (along with one other person) in consuming 15 guinesses, 4 bushmills on the rocks, a plate of nachos, and a round of maker's mark. In your medical opinion, was this a good plan for a Sunday night?

Beep For those scoring at home, that's an eqA of drunk Beep
Note to Brian (and anyone else):

Not sure what your plans are for Fourth of July, but if you want to blow a few vacation days and spend some time in NYC, we'd love to see you.

Beep Beep
Note to all:

I need at least a week off. Where(1)(2) should I go?

(1) I've been too lazy to sign up for a passport, so US only.

(2)Not to rhyme with killerflock.

Note to Sky:

Any chance you are interested in a repeat performance of drumming angry at MillerStock 2k7??

Beep A little over a month away Beep

Note to Matty Y:

Here's an excerpt from a dining article in yesterdaty's NY Times.

"Even though the order I overheard most often from neighboring tables was sesame chicken with brown rice (one of 30 mostly ho-hum lunch specials at $6.50 or less), the kitchen doesn’t go gringo on dishes that should be truly, terrifyingly spicy. Egg the cooks on at your tongue’s peril.

Of the dishes that will get you sweating like you’re in a sauna, the best is sliced fish with spicy sauce soup, nearly the most expensive thing on the menu at $16.95. It comes in a broad bowl capped with few handfuls of those little red Sichuan peppers atop a layer of spice-infused oil two fingers deep. (Fat is not a four-letter word in Sichuan.)"

Sounds like a place you might like to check out with the Pam.

Beep Oh, it burns! Beep

Note to B.B.,

A "fatigued right groin" is what often happens when you're too old to be doing something that you're trying to do.

Speaking of too old, happy birthday!

Beep beep!

Notes to Dr. Nick:

1) As a trained medical professional: Does a "fatigued right groin" count as "arm falling off?"

2)Happy early birthday.

Note to Liz:

Your fantasy baseball team is languishing in late place, and has three players on the DL (including one starter). Now might be a good time to go in and adjust your roster for next week if you so desire. I mean, things may look bleak, but I bet you can still beat out Frank...

Beep I need some new outfielders Beep

Note to Sky:

Sally Pinkas is a pianist. She has performed at least once a week since my freshman year. She lives in a cage in the Hop basement and they only let her out for concerts. And yet, I've never heard her.

Beep I mean, I've heard her pleas for freedom, but I've never heard her play piano Beep

Monday, May 28, 2007

Note to Dartmouth kids:

Questions prompted by a visit to the Dartmouth home page today:

Who is Sally Pinkas?
For how long and how frequently has she performed?
Did any of you ever go to one of her piano concerts?

Note to myself:

Follow up point: How the fuck did trained baseball writing professionals get to the point where a phonetic spelling of someone's actual name was acceptable as a nickname?

Choo Choo.
Note to all:

Even though I am rooting for Dusty Baker to take over, I don't understand the FireJoeTorredotblogspotdotcom mentality. Will getting rid of him turn pray for rain, pray for rain, and pray for rain into Walter Johnson, Sandy Koufax, and mid 90s Pedro?

Beep Beep.

Note to Table 10 (well, probably not the MVPs):

Word on the street is that Janel's having a sex toy party in a couple weeks.

Beep Also, on an extreme tangent, Michael Capone's mug was on the TV for a student-of-the-week type of thing -- evidently he dominates the viola Beep

Note to Sky, Brian, Liz, and Kate:

Here's the way the rotations are lined up for this weekend's Subway Series:

Friday: Andy Pettitte vs. Oliver Perez
Saturday: Darrell Rasner vs. Tom Glavine
Sunday (ESPN's 8pm Game): Tyler Clippard vs. John Maine

Is the Yankees rotation now officially "Petite, Wang, and Pray for a Hurricane?" (Yes, I know that rhyme is a little rough -- work with me here.)

Beep I was just kidding about the "Kate" part. She totally hasn't read this blog in months Beep

Beep Franco is seriously playing third base? Beep

Note to Brian:

No, no distinct coffee taste, but still extremely tasty.

By the way, casual-sex-but-not-dateable Amy claims you and/or Dr. Nick implied she could take the food...

Oh, and my forks just walked in the door.

Beep Burgers are finally gone Beep
Note to Sky:

Did it still not taste like coffee, even a little bit?

Also, aren't your forks with the cheese?

Beep Beep.
Note to meat lovers:

That chuck roast "steak" turned out quite well, fyi. It cut with a fork for dinner last night. Well, done Brian, and whoever picked out that fine fresh beef.

Beep I still don't have my cheese back Beep

Note to Road Warriors:

Casualties of the weekend include:
Vicki's wallet,
My sense of balance,
Brian's electricity (and rapport with his neighbors),
Sky's anonymity in his own building,
The arms I chose not to protect with sunblock, but chose as the perfect option for the wiping of my sunblock-covered hands,
Three garbage plates,
and My Left Blinker.

Beep good job!beep
Note to many:

When schuey and I were surveying the meat situation, we found a chuck roast labeled as "fresh beef." Did one of the neighbors sneak in and switch it with the steaks?

Beep 6:30ish Beep.

Friday, May 11, 2007

Note to roadtrippers:

I *may* have broken my toe this morning. Dr. Nick says he'll heal me when he gets home, but how much trust do we all have in that? Anyway, I just wanted to let you know this will not stop me from:
  • Admiring the lilacs
  • Drinking beer (I'll just need more of it)
  • Watching the Redwings game
  • etc. etc

...but I may just do these things with a limp. Also, wherever we watch the ballgame, i request that we have in-shell peanuts so Sky and I can continue our intrepid inquiries into whether all the salty goodness is on the outside of the shell or if somehow some of it permeates the inner nut itself.

Beep Ow. Beep
