Glorious weekend. Peruvian on Friday night followed by our favorite “within walking distance” brewery where we got some great news for Joey and tried to convince Corona that overlooking Randy as a candidate for his favorite SP character is a mistake (mission: accomplished). Lots of progress on the Halloween costumes, which may or may not break reddit.

Saturday we went to a party thrown jointly by brewers from Joey’s current and last jobs. No awkwardness there, it was actually the two brewer’s friendship that made his current job possible, so all very amicable and seeing the crew was really refreshing. We discussed the absurdity of and possibilities for having a finger that grows out of the top of your head. A giant pig was roasted and Arnold was the most popular guest, despite his best efforts to sit on my foot between trips to look at the pig. Then we journeyed out to yon Beaverton for a hilariously middle-school-awesome night of Mario Kart and laughing to tears.

Also between these social occasions I main-lined Carnivale and wore no pants. After having a dark cloud over my head for two weeks, I feel good again. Weekends like this are such a luxury, I don’t even know how to not take them for granted…other than to savor them in my head and write them down.

A lot of terrible things have happened over the past few years. I think we can all agree there are some troubling signs throughout society that things are going “downhill”, beyond that of the general “the kids are messed up” mentality that has gone on since the dawn of man.

I’d like to take this moment to highlight one bright, beautiful thing that remains shiny in all that darkness: Carlos Mencia isn’t famous anymore.

Reflect on that. Breathe that in, let it pass through your system and refresh you. We did it, guys. We did it.

Tonight we saw Gone Girl. And let me tell you, the rumors of Ben Affleck’s dick-shot have been greatly exaggerated. I had to look at Jose and be like, “wait, that was it?”. Jose’s disappointed face told a sad tale. 

Beyond that, I was gigglishly (not a word) delighted by the Rashomon-y stuff. The movie keeps you at the edge of your seat throughout, then leaves you with quite a few questions (in a good way). 

And that is my unprompted review on Gone Girl. Winky face.

Going through all the pictures and creating the album for our parents has been pretty cool. It requires such a different eye when trying to take into account aesthetic deliciousness of a single page’s layout. And you grow to appreciate a few pictures that you didn’t realize were even that good upon first glance, when mixed together with the other thousand or so.
Also, for anyone waiting, Thank You cards are coming out during this fine holiday season. Sorry to make everyone wait, but postage is bloody expensive and we like putting a lot of effort into our holiday cards, so we are sending out the Thank Yous with the holiday cards.
I’m sure you were all just waiting on pins and fucking needles for that announcement, so there you go.
