Monday Hangover

Posted in Barlife, General Life, My demons, Philosophy, Religon, River with tags on May 31, 2011 by theerivs

Friday – Started off low key, and ramped up real mother fucking quick. Went out for some beer and pizza, and alot of my friend we’re already in the bag, not half way…but all the way in the bag. Alot of drama that day too, even the German made a remark. It was Sunday Funday, it was serious Friday. As for myself I find it humourous when there’s little melodramas within the group.  Like Frumpy was upset at Commando, and Geek Princess.  Frumpy was so angry she even told me to Fuck off. It was funny. The first shift of drunkies went home, and left me with Towelie, and RJ, even the German was out later then everyone else. The German finally went home, then it happened.   White Chocolate happened. My brother, my cousin White Chocolate, and my friend the “V” came out….when this happens no good comes of it. We went to Kickoffs, and from there the boat. I didn’t roll in until the sun was hitting my vampiric ass.

Saturday –  Went out with my Grandfather, there was mass for my Grandmother, I thought it would be nice if we went together, then we had dinner. After that Geek Princess had a little party. For awhile I was the only penis there, and oddly enough I don’t like to be around large packs of girls, the conversation turns to boys oft times, and I really don’t have anything to add. No shit men are scum, that’s why I don’t date them. LOL!. Anywho Church had me all messed in the head, it always does. So I wasn’t feeling the drinking. I ended up at Durbins with all these drunk bartenders, and waitresses.  Wondering how do I end up in these situations.

I sat for awhile alone after all was said and done, and smoke a cigar while sitting on a bench contemplating my life. I feel that change is in the air, I think it’s time to heed the call.

Sunday – Was a laid back kind of day, stopped by Stitches house for a party, then went out after for a few beers.

Monday – Went out for some Hooters with a friend of mine, ran into Jackass at JWH. and caught Hangover 2. I liked it alot. As good as the first one? No, but still good.

Amor Vincit Omnia

That’s Latin for “Love Conquers All”

So last night I had to meet #1, since I was in the mood to eat, and such I went to Durbins for some grub, and to visit a friend who was working there. I find out Frumpy, and her Mom were at Ed and Joes, so I decided to stop up there.  Frumpy loves Talladega, Talladega loves Frumpy. I honestly believe this. Frumpy’s Mom was very vocal about her feelings of Talladega. I think the whole world thinks Frumpy, and Talladega should not be together.

Here’s the thing. It doesn’t matter what anyone thinks, the only two people it matters to is Frumpy, and Talladega. If they truly love each other, they will end up together. Love isn’t all roses, and sunshine. Love is alot of work, and passion. When you passionate, then you will have strong feelings. Those feelings, fueled by alchohol may end up in problems. Here’s the great thing about Love it looks past those things. It goes beyond. It conquers.

The problem with passionate love, is that sometimes like a bright start it burns out quick, or explodes. Love must be tempered with wisdom though, and that wisdom alas only comes with experience.  I too was in love once, insane, and crazy for this girl. I loved her so much, it hurt sometimes. I pushed her away in the end, because of stupid alchohol, and  my emotions were running rampant. I still remember her weeping as I broke her heart. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about what could of been if I wasn’t a fool.

I can not tell what the future brings, I am no soothsayer, will Frumpy and Talladega get married, and live happily ever after, or will their love explode, and they end up hating each other. I do not know, that’s their story to live, and tell in which I am just a bit player.

Monday Hangover

Friday – I just went out for some beer, and pizza after work. I got home early because I had to work Saturday morning. My bosses computer got hit by a virus, and I wanted to make sure it’s good to go for Monday.

Saturday – After work, and my chores I went out. I went a little nutty with the shots, and drinks at JWH, hit Teehans with Towelie for a Irish Car Bomb. Alot of it was a blur, but end of the night I went to Durbins. Frumpy tagged along with me. She was a wreck again, but that’s ok. Like I said I have a sick devotion to corrupting people. When she loses her control, she’s actually funny, and make me laugh. She talked about she loved this guy, and wanted to marry him. It brought me back to times when there were girls who may have thought that about me, but through my foolishness, and selfishness lost that love, I pray the guy she loves smartens up, and doesn’t lose that. He might be like me, and have a few regrets if he does.  So I made sure she had some food in her belly, and got her home safe.  

Sunday – I was on an internet TV show, I’ll post a link when it comes out, but it was really cool. I am deeply honored they asked me to be on. After that I went out to watch the Bulls game, and chill at JWH. I was home at a decent time.

I know not much of a weekend, but meh.

Here’s the show I was on, if you guys care to watch…yea it’s pretty geeky. Gamebreaker TV

Happy Birthday Mike!

Posted in Art of Man, General Life with tags on May 20, 2011 by theerivs

Well Mike said it was his bday Saturday, so I thought to wish him a Happy Birthday.  Mike and I never actually met face to face, our friendship has been only through our hobby, and now just our mutual…um respect for each other.

I remember when I first met Mike he went under the name of Lestat in Dark Ages, he seemed to be a cocky son of a bitch. Which he is, but I think what really grew our friendship was in World of Warcraft he played a healer, under the name Ysus, and I played a warrior. For you non-geeks out there in these type of video games warriors or commonly referred to as tanks kept the angry bad guys busy, while the healers healed the tanks, and the damage dealers would kill the baddies.  So after awhile of him healing me, and me protecting him we became almost like an old married couple. Then he would hit the Arena’s sometimes him on his warlock. That’s when the bickering really started. We both like to win, and we sometimes had different strategies.

Despite all the bickering, and in all seriousness I have a deep respect for Mike, and we had some good times in video games. I miss those days. Even though I never met him in the flesh, I think he’s one of my better friends, cause he’s always been supportive of whatever I did, and keeps me honest when my ego gets to big, or makes me think when I go out of control with my drinking.  As I support everything he does, and hopes he goes on to bigger and better things.

He’s good people, and I wish him the best birthday evah. Happy Birthday Mike! This Pic’s for you, you metrosexual bastage!

Rapture This Saturday

Posted in Art of Man, Religon, River on May 17, 2011 by theerivs

Well it’s the end of the world…again. I can’t wait. It would be awesome less people around. All the chicks will be the bad ones. We get a cool new tattoo with the mark of the beast.

Seriously though to be honest, every year this damn world is supposed to end, yet we’re still here. Heck I think we the human race are better at cockroaches when it comes to adapting, and surviving.

One of these days some omnipotent God is going to turn on the light switch, and we’re all going to scatter running towards under the proverbial fridge.

Could there be an end of the world? Sure when the Sun dies in 10 trillion years, I’d be an ignoramous to say it wouldn’t. Now will it end Saturday, lets just say I have a better chance fucking Miss America in the ass Saturday.

So if there are less people around, and my dick smells like Miss America’s shit…we’re all in trouble.

Monday Hangover

Posted in Art of Man, Barlife, General Life, Pure Insanity, River with tags on May 16, 2011 by theerivs

Friday was really Friday the 13th, everything was blowing the hell up at work, so much so it occupied most of my mind this weekend, which I didn’t drink much. It was still wild, and insane it’s just I wasn’t the one causing it…this time.

So Friday after work, I met Torino, Commando, Jackass, and Talladega up at Home Depot, aka Chicago Blu. We call it Home Depot because it’s like our place to hide out sometimes during the day, so we all say we’re going to get some parts from Home Depot.  Commando was hammered so much so, I doubt I ever seen her that messed up, like she was spewing obscenities like she had Tourette’s, or whacking us all in the balls. She slurred her  S’s a bit, so we made fun of her about that. She was getting into the deep drunk conversations, like she would talk for 20 minutes about something, stop then go, “What was my point? I forgot”

After that Torino, and Commando called it quits for the night. I showered, went to Jackass’s, there was Frumpy, and RJ there. RJ had us doing a little dance to “It’s a small world”, ya know the Disney ride song. We talked about the movie Human Centipede, which I really do have to see now. Geek Princess showed up, then Frumpy, and RJ went home, and Jackass, Geek Princess, and I went to JWH.  Which was good, the band was great, but I really couldn’t get hammered like I wanted to, even went to Teehans, then Durbins, and still not drunk.  Oh well always tomorrow.

Saturday – We gathered for Torino’s birthday, it was Torino, Commando, Jackass, Geek Princess, #1, Nascar,  Frumpy, The German with Towelie, and RJ showing up later. We all went to Boilingbrook, to a bar called Tailgaters, to see Torino’s favorite band the Lounge Puppets. They were good, but being in a new place, the fact I had alot on my mind I kind of didn’t go nuts. Which worked out great for my friends, cause we we’re going to take a service home called Paddy Wagon, but they crashed on the way to the bar. So I drove everyone home.  

Oh what a show that was. Jackass screaming in the back about the radio, and Torino kicking my seat, and at one point covering my eyes, screaming, “Now your blind bitch!”  We finally arrived at Torinos safely. Geek Princess hopped out, and was in the lawn on all fours, making strange guttural noises, either she was puking…or turning into a wolf. Torino was puking as well on the side of the truck. I handed him his keys, he tossed them randomly in the truck. They all went inside, wait I forgot Frumpy. She was in the back, so I opened the back door, She was passed out. So after  a little bit of waking her up, she crawled to the front of the truck, she was sitting in the backseat. Screaming for me to get in. I was like, “Oookay” I got in, she gave me a big hug, and said, ” I love you River”,  and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I laughed, and said “I know, but we have to get you in the house”  So I got her out, she hopped out of the truck, and she flopped right on the concrete, so hard I was really worried. I had to literally pick her up and carry her in the house. I plopped Frumpy on a couch, told her to stay there. Geek Princess comes up to me, “I’m hungry”, I replied, “Very nice.”

Next I had to deal with Jackass bothering a puking Torino. I turned around….Where’s Frumpy? I see the door closing, I went out Frumpy went to Torino’s truck to get her phone, she almost fell down the stairs several times, I got her to the back room, where she puked and laid down to talk to Taladega on the phone. Cool she’s good, back to the rest of the clan.  Geek Princess finally passed out on the couch. Commando came up to me, crying about Torinos keys, so I went out and looked for them.  Meanwhile the lead singer of the band showed up by himself, because the girls invited him to the house. Which was pretty weird.

Commando entertained the lead singer, I checked in with Jackass, he broke into the bathroom where Torino was puking, tried to shit upon him, then fell and breaking the shower curtain. Lead singer finally left, Torino went to bed.  I checked in with Frumpy, she was sound asleep, there was no blanket, so I saw a towel covered her with that.

I chilled out with Jackass, he was wound up a bit so I cooled him out.  Commando checked  Frumpy with me one last time, she was like, “Umm, yea, that towel is the towel I use to clean myself after Torino Jizzes on me”.. I almost pissed myself laughing.  With everything pretty much in order, and safe I called it a night and left.

Sunday – It was a low key day, spent some time with my Grandfather, and Father, then went to JWH for a friends bday party, had a few. checked out RJ’s new car, it’s really nice, and then called it a night.

Today the problems I had Friday are slowly getting resolved, and things are looking somewhat back to normal.

I want to run for Mayor

Posted in General Life, Politics with tags on May 11, 2011 by theerivs

When I move back to Tinley, I actually would like to run for Mayor of Tinley Park, to dethrone the incumbent would be a great victory, indeed.

The current mayor, who has been mayor for almost 20 something years, was damn near handed the office by my father who was his campaign manager in every aspect but name. Then when my father asked him for a minor favor, he refused. The favor was to send some village guys with a chipper to chip some wood up for us. Ever since there has been a little bit of bad blood.

To oust him out would be great vengeance indeed, but that’s not the only reason. I want to help the small business man in Tinley as much as I can. I think the small business man is getting crushed in this day and age.

I grew up in a Tinley Park which was basically a small town, one where it was safe to raise children, and leave your front door unlocked. Times they be changing, but we can control that change.

I don’t know how much power a mayor has, but some of the things I would do, is reassess the property values if I can to give the people a break on their taxes. Offer tax incentives to the small business man to help them out, to give the police the tools they need to protect the streets of Tinley, to offer farmers of Tinley a hand up.  To be more accessible, and out in the open, and bring more community, back to our community.

Monday Hangover

Friday – Stayed in and chilled.

Saturday – Went to dinner with my father, and grandfather. Then went out with Jackass, Towelie, RJ, and Geek Princess. Me and Jackass got into a shot war. He won, because I hesitated for the kill…NEVER AGAIN, I TELL YOU!!! He may have won the battle, but I will win the war. Then when I’m in the hospital with a failed liver, I will laugh then. We tried giving Towelie a swirlie, I was laughing so hard I nearly peed my pants. We tried to give RJ one, she gave us the evil eye, and we stopped. Went to Durbins, and Jackass ripped his underwear off, and tossed it on the bartenders, we were laughing our asses off.

Sunday – Went out for a few beers, watched the Bulls lose, then went to see THOR. I thought it was good. Some parts I laughed at, especially when he drinks a drink, and goes “This drink is good, fetch me another” and smashes the glass. I thought that’s us at JWH.

It was a low key kind of weekend for me. I have alot on my brain right now still, and I need to let it go.
