Cards game celebration in Busch! Met a cool chick on the street corner waiting for friends! Met with a friend, and completed my costume! We had fun, but her bf actually used the term “porch monkey” somewhat seriously. Went to a party with my bro Bryce. I was dressed as Richie Tenenbaum, but most people thought I was Ryan Dunn. I’ll take it either way. Sunday I went to the Saints/Rams game, and the Rams kicked ass :( So strange, oh well. Went to a bar with a friend, and took a random drive through the countryside on my way home!
Work was okay. I got to play hearts on a computer while the other staff member took kids to the gym and they got in a fight. Didn’t have to deal with any of it. I did have to sweep a bit. Overall, pretty good day of work.
Helped get stuff ready for the pool at home. We’re finally putting the tarp over it. :(
Watched the Saints dominate 62-7! Actually felt bad for Peyton Manning since he couldn’t do anything about it.
The Cardinals lost, but I think we’ve still got a good chance of winning the World Series!
Got tickets for $20 for the Saints @ Rams game! Super pumped. If anyone in the tumblrverse plans on being around you should stop by the tailgate! I’ll give out some location info at some point, and maybe have a mini tumblr meet up.
My Weekend Trip to STL
Was great to get away from work for a little while. It actually started on Wednesday, but I didn’t do much during the week.
I live about 90 miles south of STL, and was picking my buddy Bryce up from work. Listened to baseball on the radio for the first time in 6 years. The Cards won, but I wish I could have watched the game. It was worth it though because Bryce is the assistant manager at a frozen custard place. I got something with chocolate/vanilla ice cream and raspberries/strawberries/pecans. Delicious stuff. We also snagged some fat ice cream sandwiches. All fo free!
We then went to the local grocery store to pick up some booze. I bought a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black and he picked up a 12 pack of Sam Adams that had 6 different beers in it. The Bonfire Rauchbier was incredible. It’s smells smokey, and has smoked pork/salmon flavors running through it. The Johnnie Walker Black wasn’t bad, but less interesting than some other Scotches I’ve had. We finished the beers and Scotch during the party the next night.
The next day(Saturday) we had a good ole fashioned bro day. Driving range, buying suits at Goodwill for the CEOs and Office Hoes party we were throwing that night, and watching some football at St. Louis Sports Zone(I only mention it by name because the service was good and the waitresses were all fairly attractive). It was Bryce’s roommates b-day party, and it was sounding like it was gonna be huge. It wasn’t bad, but given that I went to state school I was slightly disappointed by the guy to girl ratio. All-in-all it was fun and had lots of good conversation, and I met a dude who has a video/audio production company that I might work with in the future.
Today(Sunday) was pretty slow. Bryce slept for quite a while, and was pretty hung over. I had planned to watch the Saints game, but I figured they’d win by a large margin(it was actually close, and wish I would have seen the comeback win.). We finally headed out around 3 PM and realized the Cards were playing since I had ESPN radio on. We decided to go back to St. Louis Sports Zone specifically because the attractive waitresses. The food was good, the Busch was cold, and our waitress was really cool. She was actually bummed when I told her we weren’t going to be back for the rest of the Cards games since I was from out of town and my buddy will be working. The Cards lost, but the weekend was still full of good times.
Now I’m back home. I stopped by work to check my schedule and they didn’t even have one for tomorrow, so I guess I’m not going in, ha!
