Friday: Attack of the MILF

Oh baby, it's a big weekend.

Why do you say that?

Because Mrs. Gruber's Ding Dong School closes this weekend. It's been like a half-year topic of obsession for me, so it'll be sad to see it go. How lucky, though, to spend half a year obsessing about a show that actually turned out great.

Tickets are still available at gorillatango.com. I'd suggest buying them in advance as we damn near sold out last weekend, we have more pre-sales this weekend than any others, and everyone seems to wait until the last minute.

Well, we got the requisite plug out of the way.

That we did.

Speaking of half-year obsessions coming to an end...

This happens this weekend. It will be ugly. It may be incredibly painful. I will watch it, though. I will be everything from ecstatic to miserable for most of the day for reasons completely and totally beyond my control. Any sports fan understands this masochistic phenomenon.

So between this and the Mrs. Gruber closing I may be an emotional train wreck. Please keep this in mind when I'm crying one minute and then screaming the next.

I like Ohio State by twenty.

You shut your goddamn mouth.

They'll be wearing new Nike uniforms too that are in tribute to one of their previous Rose Bowl teams, did you know that?

Seriously. Shut the hell up.

You want to throw up the link?

No.

...

...

Aren't you going to say anything else?

I don't feel like talking much right now.

Not even to post a nerdy history link?

Oh, Evil Me. You know Regular Me all too well. Here's a top five list (normally, "top # list" translates to "avoid this bullshit at all cost" but here it's interesting) of the worst invasion attempts in military history. I'm particularly partial to the Roman Empire vs. Scotland one because, when I was a kid, I had a slightly tipsy Scottish family friend explain the exact same event.

Och!

Yes, very good.

ATTACK OF THE MILF!

I would have told you about this last Friday, except last Friday kind of got away from me. Apparently, a formerly kidnapped Irish priest was released by his captors last week. Why do you care? Because of the involvement of a certain rebel group known by the acronym MILF.

FEAR THE MILF!!

This is not the first nefarious effort by MILF. In fact, I can think of a couple of moments from my own life where I came in contact with the terrorist shenanigans of MILF, including:
  1. The kidnapping of a friend carried out at a martini bar.
  2. Awkward, awkward Christmas parties
  3. Impure thoughts

Have you had enough childish fun?

Childish fun is what Friday's are for.

Happy Friday!
