Gooooooood Morning CGB! It's a lovely Friday morning out there, the sun is starting rise and you can finally begin to feel it in the air! No, not Christmas spirit... GREED! That's right, ladies and gentlemen, another generation of folks who value marginal savings on goods that my or not be needed significantly ahead of time premium! This is America, damnit!
Who's going shopping today? I just came back from some stores and it was great. Last year had some better specials, but there were definitely some great deals out there. I woke up at 3:30 to make it out here; totally worth it. At Macy's, there were suits that looked good at first glance, before I realised they were double-breasted. I haven't seen so many double-breasted suits in one place since the 1920's and I wasn't even around back then! It was like Twist's wet dream.
I really have very little else to say before I start posting some links. Yesterday, at a Thanksgiving gathering, I mentioned Cal football to a buddy and got dealt with a dual threat -- one stanfurd "graduate" (meaningless term) and a current U$C student. Immediately heard some trash talking right away about how their schools did against us. I was a little backed up against a wall here (not literally, sorry to say), since it's hard to trash talk back schools who destroyed us so bad. Only thing I had were some defense mechanisms, so like the well-oiled machine I am, I sprung into action. Turned to the U$C student and said "Hey, so great season U$C. Are you planning on going to their bowl game....? " Then, backed to the stanfurd grad and said "Hey, so did you ever go to games while you were at stanfurd. I went to the Big Game at the farm last year and it was 80% Cal students [obivous exaggeration]."
Feeling proud of myself, I went back to drinking. And that's what brought me to today morning. Go Bears!
Also, somewhere out there, atoms is dreaming that this is him:
