"John, come and meet my tall friend. I hated her in high school."

"But you're friends now?"

"No, I still hate her."

"Nice to meet you tall friend, I've heard wonderful things."


E=MC Hammer with a miraculous come from behind victory, made all the more entertaining by the heckling they received from a drunk member of a competing team. If that gentleman had known that Courtney could have ripped his arms off, he may have been a bit more careful. Sabeen could have avada kedavra'd him, but then she'd have the ministry to deal with. Marigold doesn't like getting punched in the face, but I imagine she would deal them out in a heartbeat if chicken nuggets were on the line.

Write whatever I want? This seems like a trick. Sabeen is very quiet. I am afraid.


"John! Watch me get you a beer and a shot using only my boobs."

"I can't drink, I have to drive."

"Psssh... In Mexico we drive even when we're drunk. The white man ain't gonna keep us down. We're making Mexico great again. Y'all heard it here first."


"Yes, I play the white version of myself on Thanksgiving. But only for the Football and the wall building."


This recap is getting strange.

As you may have guessed, most of our teams showed up and got belligerently drunk, which is always a welcome trend. Also, yes I have been drinking, but not too much. Maybe?

We had a full bushel of Berrys in the house! Thanksgiving was upon them, and the wine did flow. It was smorgasbord of lightly racist political banter and hugs. I even got to see photos of young Rachel. She never did outgrow that slightly-unimpressed look on her face, but that's ok, once when she was 15, she packed 5 Harry Potter books into her suitcase and eviscerated the airport's poundage limit. Luckily Megan's tiaras weren't too heavy, so she could take a couple into her bag. Next year I'm having Thanksgiving at the Berry house. No take backs!

Keith and Susie finally escaped that little shithead Conor for long enough to come out and play trivia. They almost pulled off a victory. But didn't. This was barely noticed by any of the very drunk people at the table, who were very gracious losers, and all lived happily ever after.

All in all trivia was a rip roaring success. 46 million turkeys were murdered, new best friends were made, and old enemies remained enemies.

According to the word on the street, Manhattan Beach had its annual christmas tree lighting ceremony this evening. How very un-politically correct of them to endorse Christmas so brazenly. Another word on the street informs me that this wealthy neck of the woods skews republican--and so naturally disdain political correctness in favour of peace and quiet and inadvertent racism.

Upon further information, I can tell you that this "tree" is in fact no more than several strings of lights meeting at a point. A wry Thanksgiving nod to the Native teepee, one suspects.

Its true meaning is undoubtedly more politically correct than anyone anticipated: a shiny cone reminding us to spend all our money.

And what better place to spend our money than OB's pub and grill on Wednesday nights! It is, of course, trivia night!

At the table in the corner are the lovely ethnically-ambiguous ladies of E=MC Hammer! (and Andre--FYI: not the giant or the otter)... When not answering questions, they spend their time bribing me with tater tots to tell them which sexy trivia studs are single... and then getting wasted. But hey, if you like violent Mexicans, Slytherin Indians, or people whose name might be Marigold who loves chicken nuggets, you are in luck! I have all their phone numbers. (except Andre the giant otter, but he will give it to you for some good weed).

Jesse Can't Wait were hot off the grill from their stunning first place victory last week. But for a team who so frequently finish in 12th place, they were surprisingly disheartened with their third place finish. I did get a commiseration jello shot though, so it wasn't all bad! Happy birthday Amy! I hope your birthday was 79% as good as all the men at your table. hashtag winkyface hashtag boobs.

Go Fox Yourself keepin it large and in charge with all the Ians and Alexs one's heart could ask for. There may even have been a Tyler! Sometimes they joke about being from Cleveland. An unforgivable offense.

Wallets of El Segundo ain't got no time fo no stinkin Christmas tree. Not when we got a quiz full of questions about the electron rate of sodium. Chris was not grumpy today, because he was off with his real friends, not playing trivia, and presumably, squeezing each other's man butts. Gonna miss y'all next week!

Rounded out with a little Beaver Cheeks and Other Playmates action and you've got yourself a damn good quiz.

Thanksgiving is coming and my favourite love songs radio station will soon be switching to lame Christmas music.

Peace out trouts

I moved apartments this week. No internet. That's my excuse.
