Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 51. Not Playing With a Full Deck
Wooo. The last few days before the big odometer brings about all new digits for us. I just hope this page holds up alright...oh, and the people and things that it relates to as well.
Among the amusing music-related things to happen, MTV2 will play all 18,000-ish videos in their library in alphabetical order by song title starting on the first of the year. They say it will take about four months to get through them all.
Asked why this seemingly benign little stuffed fish held such interest, Max replied "It's not so much about the fish itself, but where it came from", nodding in the direction of a large and somewhat obscene looking stuffed cat labeled 'Harry Hairball'. "Few things are as satisfying as eviscerating another animal," explained Max, "so the ability to force Harry to disgorge a cornucopia of artificial foodstuffs and hairballs is a real pleasure." Harry (http://www.rumpustoys.com/toys/harryhairball.html), upon further investigation, did indeed contain a wide varieties of artificial cat foodstuffs, all of which Max found acceptable.
Max ended the conversation by mauling the photographer's hand and scurrying off to another room. While Sean Penn has not been known to actually bite photographer's hands and kick at them with legs at the same time, we're pretty sure that Sean wishes he thought of it first.
A week from this Saturday, you could earn yourself free lunch at O'Bagelo's. How? All you've got to do is figure out how all the titles relate to the numbers for this page and the preceding pages and e-mails. For instance, #51 (above) is "Not Playing With a Full Deck" since there's 52 cards in a Poker deck. Many are thoroughly obscure, some are plain wrong or don't make any sense, and like always (?) there's partial credit and extra credit for creativity. Check out the archives for the complete list. Next week I'll have a printable list and better rules.
Oh yeah, and buy my Pokemon cards. :-)
Movie this week:
Karaoke at Drinks by Mary Dawn (535 S. Clinton.)
