|05:09 pm - A short meme|
Those who know me well know that my life isn't actually real, anyway.
Well, at least a good 1/2 of it isn't. I don't think. Actually, I do think it is, but others might disagree.
So, in light of that, as I was crusing through LJ in my first moment of free time in over 24 hours, I was pleased to see this meme on edelweiss68's LJ:
Please comment with a *fake* memory of you and me together.
Please participate, because it appears I'm coming back to work on Sunday, and I'll need some amusing stories to remember.
Even at time and a half, I'm not sure this is worth it. Good thing I scheduled vacation for Monday, purely on accident.

Well, there was that one time when I was walking down a street in Providence, Thayer Street to be exact, when who did mine eyes behold? You, dressed up as a cowboy, strutting down the sidewalk towards me. I said "Mr. Dangler, whatever are you doing in Rhode Island?"
To that you responded, "Why, I am here to drink soymilk, which for some reason I cannot get back home," and proceeded to chug soymilk from a carton.
A Providence Police Officer driving by, seeing a man in full cowboy outfit drinking from a carton, assumed that it was something besides just soymilk. He pulled over, and proceeded to arrest the both of us, because I was obviously an accessory to the depraved acts of perversion that could only be committed by a cowboy. We spent the rest of the night playing poker and dominoes with drunkards and hookers, who for some reason did not even ask about your outfit.
In the morning we were bailed out by my girlfriend Kris, who was able to get the charge waved by flashing a cop some shoelace.
Oh, I do remember that. I was on my way to the Harvard Celtic Colloquium to see Cei present his Cernunnos paper. Did you know that Southwest serves the Boston area from there? My other choice was to fly into Manchester, but I realized quite quickly that the soy milk was just not as good that far north.
Good thing I built in an extra day to my travel schedule. If I hadn't, I wouldn't have just been late to the first lecture, I would have missed the Colloquium all together!
