|03:37 pm - "Ran into a chum with a bottle of rum and we wound up drinkin' all night. . ."|
Ah, the holidays. A good time to avoid leaving the house if at all possible.
Tina's gone to Cleveland until Sunday, and I'm just hangin' out. I dug myself out of the snow and the ice and I have a clear driveway and a clear walk. Well, more or less.
All that snow you've heard about? Yeah, we got some of it.
"This morning, I shot six holes in my freezer. . . I think I got cabin fever. . . Somebody sound the alarm!"
Yes, I was singin' "Boat Drinks" all day yesterday, the day before, and I'll probably be singing it tomorrow. The only thing that's missing is the hockey game being on, but then again, life is always better with an NHL lockout/strike/whatever this is.
"I gotta go where there ain't any snow, where there ain't any blow, cuz my fins sink so low. . . I gotta go where it's warm!"
If anyone wants to bring me a bottle of rum, though, I wouldn't mind. Captain Morgan's Coconut Parrot Bay will do just fine, but the Mango might be a nice change. That'll change my latitudes, no question.

Too bad I already have plans. I have a large bottle of Captain Morgan's Coconut Parrot Bay sitting on top of my fridge right now waiting for New Years. ;-)
Actually, someone came through for me, after all.
(Not with one, but two kinds of rum! Only drawback? Type #2 wasn't mango.)
no plans for the eve and day?
i haven't had the mango one yet, but it just sounds good:)
Never make plans for these days. They're more-or-less me days. Except when I look around, and say, "But, why's the rum gone?"
you're just about as hot as johnny depp to.... now, can you dress up like a x-mas pirate and maintain pirate talk for a whole evening???
if yo'ure up for it, i will totally bring over a bottle of rum and drink with ya. haha
I'd have taken you up on that, except that I didn't see the post until today Ah, well, perhaps next time?
So is your tree decorated in true Buffet style? I can picture the parrots, small airplaine size rum bottles, and maybe a few palm trees, and multicolored lei garland . . .
There is a parrot, and there is a lei. Unfortunately, I'm too much of a cheapskate to buy airplane-sized rum bottles. :)

The only thing that's missing is the hockey game being on...
I figured this out... It's not that there's actually a strike, it's that the FCC won't allow a sport as violent as hockey on the air, so they've concocted this whole "lock-out" story so that no one would suspect a thing.
For evidence, look to the NFL, where they will only show the really vicious hits in slow-mo instant replay, 10,000 times. It's just like the whole "wardrobe malfunction." No one actually saw the nipple slip, they just saw the 10,000 times after that it was repeated.
You might be onto something :)
If only I were in Columbus.....
I suspect you got some snow, too.

(and it's a lockout)
Heh. You know that's in just for you.
If I had known you were in town, my cats and I would have shown up on your doorstep. We were very miserable and very, very cold. You're about the only person I know who could understand and possibly accommodate me and my cat posse.

Once the rum showed up, it was all good :)
Finding a place for the cats might have been a trick, given that our house has very few doors that don't already have cats behind them, but I imagine that something could have been worked out.
