After I get off work, I'm cooking chicken kebabs and heading over to a party with plenty of friends, plenty of adult beverages, plenty of games (texas hold 'em, left/right/center, cornhole), plenty of laughs, and a swimmin' pool. It just doesn't get any better than this! Until someone pukes, someone fights, and someone drowns naked in the pool. :p

Cornhole? Will you post pictures?

Shawnee123 08-25-2007 11:45 AM

lol...I was expecting that. In my podunk part of the world, it's a big deal. It's basically horseshoes without the post or the horseshoes. You throw bags filled with corn towards an inclined board with a hole in it. There are tournaments, we even just finished up a summer league here at my college: we play every Friday at lunch. It's really kind of fun. Sanctioned by the American Cornhole Assocation. Yeah, really!:D

I thought Ohio was under water from Seneca to Cuyahoga Falls.

Do you have an ACA bumper sticker on the back of your car?

Shawnee123 08-25-2007 11:56 AM

I don't do bumper stickers. It's like a tattoo for your car. And I've said before me getting a tattoo would be like scribbling on the Mona Lisa.

And, actually:

The farms of ohio
Had been replaced by shopping malls
And muzak filled the air
From seneca to cuyahoga falls
Said, a, o, oh way to go ohio

I got home from work about 8 and found a message from our neighbors saying just to come over. Instead of walking up the driveway to the road, I took the shortcut through the yard with a tiny LED flashlight.

I scared Kim in their driveway. She said, "I thought you were the bear!" Apparently there's a bear in the neighborhood - a very big bear. It tore the (locked) door off of my neighbor's barn just to get to their trash. They must have a much higher quality of trash then we do, though the bears have been know to drag our trash around a bit, but then leave it spread out over the weeds that we call the yard.

I said, You call me and let me walk through the knee-high grass, when there's a 400-lb bear in the neighborhood. Then we had some drinks and everything was fine.

That is all.

And you sighed and said "I thought I was too, I thought I was too."

Great bear story. Be careful!

I have a friend coming into town early tomorrow morning. Yeah!! I haven't made any real friends in the new place yet. It will be good to see a familiar face. Yes everyone....I have so few friends here that I have to import them.....Good friends are so hard to come by.
Oh-I get so lonely!!! It will be so nice to have a real conversation without having to type it or pick up a phone and lose my signal.

That will mean giving up your secret identity.

LabRat 08-31-2007 04:45 PM

Heh, this is a slight concern, since all the publicity my Meta Forum thread has generated...but oh well. I haven't tried very hard to keep who I really am a secret.

Since this will be my 7th publication, maybe it'll be lucky...
