Those Eagles are something else, when you think they’ll lose, they win, when you think they’ll win, they lose. Before Sunday’s game, I felt like the Eagles were going to win. The Edman was being evacuated from his house because his girlfriend was having some girls get together, so we decided to cheer on the Eagles at Hooters. I think Hooters is an excellent premise, but this particular Hooters on a Sunday where the Eagles were losing, came off very flat, like a pint of Coors Light sitting at room temperature for a couple weeks. We left at half time and headed for greener pastures. We ended up at the Maple Glen Tavern and it was freaking awesome. It was like an Eagles wake, people were drunk, exuberant, and dancing on their bar stools (see pic below).
Last year had a formula that predicted Martin Luther King Day as the most depressing day of the year. This year, my work was supposed to have off for the holiday, but we are so busy they rescinded the holiday and we had to work. In fact, it’s close to midnight and I’m just wrapping up. I took some breaks to hang out with the family, but it’s been a long day.
Tomorrow, I have to be at work super early, I can’t wait until this campaign is launched and life can go back to normal.
Here’s a question for all of you, the waitress at Hooters asked us if we wanted our wings breaded or naked. The Edman says breaded wings are what you normally get and I said naked wings are the norm. Any one want to weigh in on this?
I beat Grand Theft Auto 4 for the Xbox 360. Absolutely enjoyed the game. Here’s a quick funny story about it. I was playing the game and I had a particularly awful mission to complete. I think it involved killing some rival gang who was now managing a strip club in the game. I accepted the mission and had my character deep into his assignment when in real life I had a knock on my door. It was a family going door to door asking people to consider accepting Jesus Christ into their lives. They told me a little about Jesus, gave me some literature and left. I wished them luck in their endeavor, closed the door, and resumed my game that was in the midst of a bloody firefight in the middle of a strip club with poor virtual strippers getting caught in the crossfire. That game really is horrible and I hope Winston is playing stuff like that until he’s a senior in high school (or just avoids video games altogether).
The snow’s been fun and Winston and I managed to sneak a little more sledding in on the weekend. Jaclyn is doing a great job of keeping this household together. Her husband has been having too much fun lately, wrapping up Grand Theft Auto, going to Hooters, and staying up late to post this blog. I’ll make it up to her though, I think I’ll make her a special meal this weekend and make this weekend 100% about hanging with the family (unless Jay decides to throw himself a 30th birthday party).
One quick note on the bailout. Imagine if you lived in the ghetto, in a dilapidated row home, can you imagine how pissed off you would be if the richest bankers and Wall Street people were getting billions in loans while you’re getting your heat shut off? It’s insane to think the bailout does nothing for people in poverty.
One quick note on this week’s inauguration. It’s amazing how far this country has come in a very short period of time. Less than 50 years ago a black person would have to use a different bathroom, water fountain, or classroom. Now we elected a black person as our president. Good to see America still evolving, we probably still have room to improve.
One quick note about TV. Can’t wait for the season premier of LOST on Wednesday. If anyone wants to discuss on Thursday, please e-mail me your thoughts.
That’s it for now, I gotta sleep so I can get back to work.
COME ON PEOPLE, LETS GET SOME COMMENTS GOING!
