I have dragged Pammy off to NY state, given her rations to a ravenous puppy, stolen her iPod, and ruthlessly left her behind. Let this be a lesson to you all.
Beep I don't know what she did to deserve all that, but I'm sure I'll come up with something while drunk beep!

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?
Beep and I mean EXTRA beep
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.
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!
Who exactly did you mean by "most of you" are in there. I do believe that is quite an exaggeration. Liarface.
Beep you two-timing bastard beep
Thursday, December 20, 2007
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
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

How is it not possible to view calls made since my last statement? You know that I know that you know that information, yet still you won't show me, or tell me. I hope google/Paul Allen/anybody buys up the 700 MHz spectrum and forms a competing network that drives your unfriendly ass company out of business. Then I hope a naked man burns your house down and posts the video on youtube.

No wonder my team missed the playoffs, there was nary a 'roid amongst the bunch. You guys can ride your ethics high horses all the way to the bottom of the rankings next year, but I say pass the Winstrol.
Beep Gary Sheffield really is the bane of my existence nowadays 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

"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.
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
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
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?"
How could anyone resist joining a classy tennis club that would have a member named Critter? My membership application is in the mail.
Beep Now that's high society.beep.
Tuesday, December 11, 2007
Can you guess what Chuck Norris' favorite game is?
Beep I've heard he plays a mean paddle too beep
My mistake. I'd vote for Walker, Texas Ranger, too - after all, his election would render the evolution vs. intelligent design in schools discussion moot, as there is only a list of animals Chuck Norris allows to live.
Beep All hail the Flying Spaghetti Monster! beep!
Why, look at where some jeu de paume courts are conveniently located!
Beep Ah, but what will we call you when you leave Rochester? beep!
mlbtraderumors.com may be the greatest MLB trade rumor site in the history of the known universe, but anyone that cites Mr. Bob Matthews of the "Times Union Democrat and Chronicle" as a source of a rumor is basically dead to me.
Don't worry, I would not vote for Huckabee...and if he was elected, I would become a Canadian.
I was referring to Chuck Norris. He may be the only thing that can save this country.
And you can always live in a tent in my backyard...just look out for the bear.
Beep I mean, his chin is another fist for god's sake! That's badass! beep.

She is definitely trying to grab your ass.
Here's a shot from the party I was at on Friday night, featuring my Devil's Rejects co-captain Ro. Unlike the classier prom-style pics from earlier in the night, in this one you'll notice that I have Doug DrunkEye going on and Ro seems to be gleefully attempting to break my neck. This shot was taken around 920pm, approximately one hour before my brown-out began. Yes, I know that this is still not a good excuse for having missed Liz's party -- I just wanted to share.

OMG! Your posting skillz have been so off the charts that you have even brought Frank out of seclusion in the west wing. It's almost too much to handle! Congrats to Sky for inviting you to join, and congrats to you for sparking increased posting, especially by Brian and LizMc. Phew.
Well, that's enough accolades to keep me going for a while. Time to intimidate some underlings.
Beep As for Kate? I don't expect we'll hear from her until after the holidays Beep
It's actually *NSync (or at least 'NSync).

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.
Beep he's still dreamy beep.
See, rotaries are evil.
Beep Yikes! Beep
You'd better stay together, or you'll be destroying the earth.
Luckily, I still had the post Brian was referring to open in another tab. The full version is available on demand by emailing me, but here are some of the relevant quotes:
"the place is great and it is just renovated last year....it is a wow latterly..."
"central square is 10 min walking ...were u can finde the best clubs in cimbride...Meddelsex ...Enormous Room and Midle east........omg what a crasy year i lived in Cambridge ....15 min walking u will be in the biggest shaws grossery market around boston and cambridge"
And, of course, the kicker:
"i'm a doctor and i was doing a research work at harverd medical school"
Note: all those ellipses are his, not mine.
Beep "Harverd," indeed Beep

First off, nice to meet you.
Second, after making it known to Doug that I do not despise the Patriots, I've been instructed to ask after just WHY the Patriots are such a despicable succubus of a team. Apparently, you know how to mix words on the topic all poetic like.

I'm new here, so I'd just like to know: do you actually have a law on the books that requires people to shovel their sidewalks after it snows? If so, does it apply to public places too - like the enormous park I need to walk by, or the train station on a hill?
Beep Just curious. Beep
I know we're twelve whole weeks in and all, but no one should be able to say that anyone " . . . leads the Giants in rushing with 602 yards despite missing the previous four games with ankle and groin injuries."

Also, is this person one of my naked neighbors?

If the braintrust decides that the best use of their $30mil/year is to sign Mr. Rod, I would be OK with that. Perhaps one of you can show him a Boston area strip club with dancers who are actually attractive, though having scouted out the Brass Rail, he probably just has poor taste.

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.

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.

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

Beep Doug, write about baseball/football/hockey from a smart, emotional fan's perspective, but without numbers. Kate has no clue -- we'll hear about it when/if she remembers, though. Evidently you can vote in the poll multiple times if you log in on different computers. Beep

The first TMQ of the season is up. Are you ready for some football? And while you're at it, I haven't been sleeping too well as of late. Any suggestions?
Beep Seriously, it's like my body only wants naps right now Beep

So I've decided I want to start writing again (as if I don't do enough writing for work), and am looking for ideas about what I should write about. I've considered restarting FBM or getting back into writing poetry, though FBM by myself would probably get old quick and my poetry is sure to suck (at least at first) so I doubt I'd want to post it. Any suggestions?
Beep Yes, Matt, we all know you can't read or write unless medicine or football is involved Beep

Apparently all you need to do is dare the boys and you can get what you want. You know, assuming that's what you want.
Why people have sex- a totally legit NYTimes Article... no, seriously
Beep Males will occasionally have sex merely because the opportunity presents itself?! GASP! Beep

Why was your existence going unacknowledged? Was it due to some triangle defense faux-pas? The fact that your grasp on first is a tenuous 1/2 game over your brother? The result of a drive-by cone-ing?
Beep I really haven't done a drive-by cone-ing in a while... that could be fun Beep
Making our beep beep actions readable only by authors and invited guests seems to have disabled the RSS feed. Which I guess makes sense. But my question is -- is this an acceptable trade-off? I kind of like my RSS feeds...
Beep Jen, you're making me look bad -- accept your invite and make a post already :) Beep

Not nice to be coy about new members of the Beep Beep. I mean, I know you don't remember much of Friday, but I don't believe for a second that you don't remember ALL of MillerStock. Plus she'll post more than Kate does...
Beep She was Brian's partner, ring a bell much Beep
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
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.
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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Casualties of the weekend include:
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

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
