Happy MLK day, everyone, or to us unemployed, Happy Why Is Everyone Off Today? Oh, Right, MLK Day, No I’m Not Racist I Just Don’t Look At My Calendar That Much, I’m Not From the South and I Vote Democrat So Back The Fuck Off… Day.
(Which is a lot easier to just say as MLK Day)
I’d also like to take a moment to thank the very awesome Kara Hoag for bestowing upon Brandon and I the Stylish Blog Award, which is a huge honor simply because as I sit here in my unemployment uniform, I can’t imagine why on God’s green earth she would relate ‘Stylish’ and ‘me’ in the same sentence. But regardless, thank you so much, Kara, and if you get a chance, check her out. She’s got a great blog and I’m not just saying that out of obligation.
Apparently when accepting this award, you have to give out 3 secrets to the essence of being yourself, which kinda sounds like payback for yesterday’s post. So here goes.
1. Writing. On days that I don’t write, I’m unpleasant to be around. On days that I do write… I’m still unpleasant to be around. So maybe there’s not really a correlation here, and I’m not sure what I was originally getting at.
2. Alcohol. Whether it’s the cheap stuff or the fancy stuff, nothing helps me unwind like a good drink. I like to try everything just once. In fact, I have always wanted to try moonshine, and I don’t care if it tastes like paint thinner. It’s all about the experience. My drink of choice: Johnnie Walker Black and Coke. As the old adage goes, I like my whiskey like I like my women—12 years old and mixed up with Coke.
3. Physical activity. Some people are content to amorphously melt into the fibers of their couch, but I like to run, and lift weights, and do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Jiu Jitsu, btw, has a bad rap for being a ‘gay’ sport. But I ask you, what’s so ‘gay’ about wrestling with another guy, bending each other's legs in awkward positions, trying to pin him down until he submits to you?
Anyways, Brandon’s still out sick today, so wish him a speedy recovery so he can get back to writing and get back to blogging, aka take a huge weight off of my shoulders.
Blogging is serious business! What’s your guys’ secret to being interesting every single day? I’m lucky if I’m interesting on a weekly basis.
Till next time,
Mood: Gay (not what it sounds like)
Beer: On hold while I enjoy the taste of my good friend Johnnie (not what it sounds like)
Shower: Much needed after a long day of grabbing dudes (...goddammit)
