Happy Halloween!

How in the world does a half month go by so quickly? Oh yeah that's right - alcohol scews your perception of time. Excellent.

You know it's bad when you have to look through your bank statement to determine what you've done in the past few weeks.

Tonight, I'm making turkey. Tomorrow, I'm making turkey.

I also have class, shopping, packing and setting up to do for the Vikings tailgating party on Sunday. And laundry. Poo.

Happy Halloween! I will post pictures from the par-tay sometime within the next fiscal year.

Feeling Guilty

For getting so caught up in turkey making that I didn't call some of my friends until today. I hope it's not too late of notice for tailgating!!!! 2 Turkeys. 3 lbs of potatoes. Beer to infinity. You should come.

Happy Birthday Alex!

Happy birthday miss gymnast Alex!

I hope all your birthday wishes come true! I'll be seeing you soon armed with only your birthday present and a big huge bear hug.

Old Chicago

Once again I can't refrain from posting from the local Old Chicago. We checked out The Shout House, a new piano bar on block e in downtown Minneapolis. There is definite joy to the world and all the boys and girls. Kevin Farmer is here from Depuke Iowa. I feel sober. This is a correctable problem.

The Unreal Deal?

Not only did the Titans hold Green to 33 rushing yards, but they forced a fumble! Therefore, Ahman-can't-hold-onto-the-ball-Green scored a whopping 2 points!

Mason had 60 some yards and a TD scoring 12. I won!

Bonus? The Packers played like crap - Green had 3 yards on 4 carries and a fumble lost in the 1st half, Favre threw 3 (should have been 4) interceptions and the 2nd half started out with a bang - the Packers first 4 possessions ended in: Int, Int, muffed punt, fumble lost. Go Pack!

Lambeau field has lost its mystique? The Titans scored the most points ever allowed by the Pack at home.

    Monday Night Maddenisms
  • After the Packers go 3 and out on their first possession of the game:
    You know what you're saying to yourself if you're the Packers? The first 3 plays didn't work, so let's go to the next first 3 plays"
  • Chris Brown gets a 1st down and then some. Madden critiques the Packer defense:
    "The problem there was that part of the defense was playing for the run and part of the defense was playing for the pass." Apparently, you should put all 11 of your defenders on the line if you think they're going to run the ball.
  • Walker makes a sideline catch in the 4th quarter. He has to make an effort to keep his feet inbounds while establishing possession and is seen limping immediately afterwards.
    "I can tell you how Walker was hurt on that play. He was trying to keep his right food in and he put all of his weight on it and kind of put pressure on his joint." Really?

MN Sports

Well, the Twins lost at the Big Inflatable. Even so, Jill and I had perfect seats and had a great time at the game. Hate to say the play of the game was a foul ball hit to our section - a guy caught it one handed on the other side of the railing. If he would have missed it, it would have landed in the tunnel via which the Vikings run onto the field.

When Derek Jeter was up to bat in the 2nd inning the status board said:

At Bat Avg. Inning Balls Strikes Outs
...2 ....222 ......2 .......2 .......2 .......2

The Gopher's failed to bring home the Little Brown Jug. The last time they won it from Michigan? 1986. This is the same year the Challenger failed to make it through Earth's atmosphere. Coincidence? Probably.

Bowling was fun. We lost all 7 points but the beer tasted good. Much obnoxious karaoke singing followed. I should really feign laryngitis.

The Vikes beat the Texans 34-28 in overtime when Marcus Robinson pulled in a 50-yard TD reception. The score is no indicator of how this game went. We were up 21-0.

Nothing like MN sports to give you heart palpitations.

Tonight, we bowl and hope Mason pulls in 2 TD's over 200 yards while Ahman Green gets stuffed at the line and fumbles twice.

Go Twins!

Hyser and I are eating pizza, sipping cocktails and walking the Stone Arch to the Twins game where the Twins are going to make the Yankees sorry they were even born. Jeter Beater.

Girls' night! If you see us attempting any belly dancing, please do everything in your power to stop us.

These cupcakes taste just like cake!

I was actually surprised when I bit into the cupcake. I wasn't expecting sweetness, I was expecting muffin-ness. Because they were naked cupcakes. That is, without icing. Yes, I now realize that cupcakes are made of cake.
