  • You don't have to be crazy to be constaff, but it helps.
  • Sam's Club will not even blink an eye at you when you buy $250 woth of booze in one trip. They don't even offer an intervention service.
  • My Expedition is ideal for transporting $250 in bulk booze.

    crisis!

    Do not call me while I am loading gear in my truck and tell me we are missing half of our necessary.supplies. Parts and tools of that scale do not just go missing.

    I break thumbs, you know.

    mmmm.... BD's

    So we did BD's tonight. The group that went was a little smaller than planned due to a few last minute cancellations (damn responsibility!) but we had a good batch of folks none the less.

    I grilled. I ate. I had a huge apple cobbler dessert and managed to finish it all by myself. Right now yotogi and I are waiting for 2_gryphon to finish his show, and then we're going to shanghai him up to the hotel room for a round of Guinness. Tomorrow it's back to the grind and more artshow work. The good news is that Saturrday mornings are sort of slow. It's the evenings that make things go nineteen....
