It's hour 55, and the game is over. As the scores are being
tallied, we can't help but forget the great fun bestowed upon us by
fellow team members, and davy. We can't help remembering the whole
event, from it's rowdy start up until it's powerhouse finish.
Who can forget davy and mine float building extravaganza. WE went
full throttle from thursday night, taking it for a spin at four in
the morning around the block in the rain. If only those girls would
have been able to experience the shear thrill of riding around the
block behind a submarine. Davy definately was having fun. If only we
would have seen me hitting a phone pole the night before as a sign
that It was gonna be a rough friday afternoon. WEll, the accident
wasn't the most beautiful thing in the world, but It's OK since I
can blame davy for the whole thing, and he blames me. It almost
seems like there isn't any blame then! Don't worry gang... the
estimates from charter haven't come in yet... bets anyone? I'll just
tac it on to the annual ben's driving 'corrections' fund. If anyone
would like to phone in and inform me how I only got a $125.90 fine
for driving a submarine down a busy street in an
unlicensed/uninsured car, not wearing seat belts, looking through a
18 inch hole, and relying soley on directions from my ambidextrous
copilot sitting on the back, please do.
Around came trivia. Six o'clock snuck up like it does every year.
With Tusha and her friends freezing their asses, and me crying over
my cracked hull, we were ready to begin! It was sorta fun plowing
into the game with a malfunctioning StudsNOC. I don't think we had
question sheets til hour two, and by hour three, for some reason,
everyone was bothering me for Food! The nerve! Ivy got a new hub,
and a hurricane swept through my room. I think I lost many head of
cattle to that monster. Third place as of hour 5 baby! Of course,
who can forget tusha and CharQ trying to get their asses chewed off
in the 2 horse blower after davy 'accidentally' dumped coke all over
their pants? And the 3am brats? OMG yes! We even had beer this year!
Yummy.. that one goes out for you alec. Things died down a little
during the day on saturday. Amy and matt came by to do the stones,
egg mcmuffin anyone? Was that a muffin, holz? Speaking of which...
Did I see you napping at 8pm on friday night? I nominate holz as the
winner of the first annual Mohammad Ali "Out for the
Count" award. The fire picked up again as the sun set, dan had
the conn manning the team. Another batch of judz cookies came in.
Yummy. I went to bed at midnight to catch some much needed
ZzZzZzzzzs, and i hear i missed a great show. How many hours did you
spend looking at pr0n davy? On my puter? Naturally, during this
whole time Chris was sleeping. When did he go to bed? 5? Everything
was hunky dorey until 5 am when dan decided to take a 4 hour 'nap',
and davy feel asleep sideways on a row of chairs.
There we were... Exactly as predicted ... Meaple and I supported
the team until 1130, just as FEUN kept us going Earlier that
evening. It was a rough time finding answers to questions just after
we heard "phones down, phones down," but I'm sure we'll
fix that for next year. IVY has DECREED it so. Chris woke up, Dan
woke up, Davy woke up, Holz woke up, Steve showed up, Ivy woke up,
ErikR woke up, Alec woke up with Kayla, Josh woke up, Juan woke up,
and the world was happy once again. Davy looked at more pr0n, we
figured out how to spell clitoris, and Norwigan Man showed up. I
think i remember some punk running across the yard with "show
your tits" written on cardboard, an ice cream pail on his head,
donning the colors of Norway.... ALEC? The final question turned
around, and who was there to find the answer on the internet?? God
Bless IVY. Whew. Then there always was the intense game of HotorNOT
during the trivia cooldown... Happens EVERY tyne.
Did you smell Lemons? Special thanks to sam. He CLEANED the
bathroom before the games began! YEssssss. That was super special.
Dad, of course, was very generous in his facilitation of the events.
No problems to speak of this year.
Alec, for keeping things lively. Im sure the pullropes and
intertubes woudl have come in handy had we made it to the parade.
Kayla, You didn't want to come, did you? How's that for
Davy, I believe you skipped skewl twice for the greater good..
Way to be! The navigation job didn't work out, but atleast we know
you can scatter hundreds of jpegs throughout a hard drive.
Steve, You managed to come and give the team a needed boost. You
definetely were a great boost of energy to the final hours!
Dan, sorry to let you down with the contact lens case throwing.
Exxxtra thanks for keeping the team going for 6 hours on Sat. Got
any yellow legal pads?
Ivy, Excellent work with StudsNOC. I hear you weren't a bad hand
at the google quest either. I'm expecting a StudsNOC performance
report from you shortly, SIR.
ErikR, It's amazing what can be accomplished when only limiting
yourself to two hours of Rogue Spear, eh? You even got up Sunday
mornign at 9 when we woke you!
Holz, It's nice to have an RMT so well trained that shows up for
her appointments too! I think we even got you in a pic this year )
Chris, you musta been phoning the commies steady this year to get
all those answers!
Meaple, so you do more than just steal stuff? I was impressed
with your performance. Me and You, sunday morning baby!!
Amy and Matt, you were our key stone players at the beginning...
think training will correspond again with trivia next year? I will
happily pass all stone responsibilities next year onto yous!
Tush and Girlfriends, I think you still yelled at me for missing
the parade. Thanks for volunteering so willfully to water ski...
maybe next year! Have the jeans dried out yet?
Cheesie and Mom, thanks for stoppin by and being part of the
crowd, I think we even got some early morning answers from you!
