Back and blogging

Well, I'm back from Philly, with all sorts of tales to tell. The trip was actually very good, with only a couple of missteps. I'll do some more detailed posts, but here are the goods and the bads.

Good:
  1. Getting there in record time. The only advantage to leaving at 1:00AM - no traffic whatsoever. We made the 350 mile drive in a little less than 5 hours.
  2. The dogs didn't pee in the car.
  3. We managed to see almost everyone we wanted to, except for one friend who had to cancel because her friends were sick.
  4. Mrs. TK was a rockstar and offered to visit her grandmother alone, which was awesome and I need to do something extra-super nice for her.
  5. Didn't get too drunk. Just drunk enough.
  6. Hung out at Bill's (he of the stripper girlfriend), and saw my cousin. Got my cousin and Bill to exchange phone numbers, which is good because my cuz is somewhat introverted and needs a social circle.
  7. Saw Coleen and Greg's new house. It's awesome, despite being 1.5 blocks from Col's mother's house, which is a little weird.
  8. Saw Brian and his wife, who is now pregnant. Congrats! Scary!
  9. Made it back in excellent time as well, despite taking the GW Bridge/Cross-Bronx at 3PM.
  10. Watched Audrey the Beagle and Baby Emma (Wife's cousin's 2 yr. old daughter) become best friends, in what was one of the top 10 cutest scenes ever.
  11. Baby Emma's daddy got arrested for having 45 POUNDS of pot in his car. FORTY-FIVE POUNDS. This is good because he was a scumbag. He will not be missed.
Bad:
  1. Leaving at 1:00AM on Thursday night/Friday morning.
  2. I'm fairly certain my mother-in-law is an alcoholic. More on this later.
  3. The Patriots lost to the Colts. Boooooo!
  4. An unbelievably depressing visit to my wife's friend, who is 50 years old, has 2 small children (3 & 4) and a completely loveless marriage.
  5. The Colts beat the Patriots.
  6. Did I mention the Pats lost? Motherfuck.
  7. (late addition) 45 Pounds of pot is now out of circulation. Nice catch, Matt.

Wait a sec, kiddo. You mean to tell me that 45 pounds of pot got confiscated? It's no longer available? Gone?

Let's not be too hasty about putting this in the "good stuff" column.

Matt: Noted and corrected.

No worries, kid. It's all in the reflexes.

I have just downloaded iStripper, so I can have the hottest virtual strippers on my taskbar.
