So it was a pretty non-descript weekend around the sausage (Vienna Sausage = our house). We did venture out after Charlie and I got Killed at softball. I have never seen a softball hit so far in my life. 300 ft fence and the ball was 50 feet over it. Absolutley stunning. So Frenchie, Jesse and I piled in Jesse’s Accord heading to DC for scary movie night at Amanda’s place near Howard University. I wish I could tell you tales of dice games and partying in the street ( it was homecoming weekend) but nothing much was going on in the ‘hood. We got there late, apparently they had just finished watching “Sleepaway Camp” which, according to reviews, was not very good at all. But that was kind of the point of the evening. We talked and BS’ed for a while before decideing to watch the original Halloween. It was fun pointing out all the flaws in slasher movie logic and trying to figure out if Jamie Lee Curtis really was a hermaphrodite.
After the movie the remaining crew played taboo and ate cookies until late in the night. I discovered that I am rather bad at Taboo, but I can eat the hell out of some cookies.
So on to Saturday, Jesse and I had been working on our respective projects all morning so we decide to stay in for the night (like we really needed an excuse) The mysterious Josh made a rare apperence that night too. By 10 we had the whole crew assembled and we did what we always do. Played the Pong. This was a rare night, for I, perennial loser… went undefeated the whole night. AND the stars must have been aligned, cause IT happened. It may not seem like much but in the first game, overtime, I had the ball land on the triangle intersection of three cups. It’s like a triple play in Baseball. Except harder. More like a no-hitter. I still haven’t wittnessed a Perfect Game ( 2 same cup rounds in a row ) but I’ve only seen this happen one other time.
Relax, it was only amazing
And you know the rest of the night was good after that! So good in fact that I didn’t get out of bed until the 3rd quarter of the Redskins game the next day.
Looking ahead at the stuff we have to get done before the Halloween party I think I really have to get working on some stuff. Not to mention that we’re going down to see Brian Regan in Roanoke the day before the party!
It’s gonna be sweet!
