HI MY NAME IS BRACKETS!

One day I will make it to one of these things I swear. Probably not this time though.

I used to be a Mefite, I used to drink the beer
But I couldn't take the late nights, had to shift to low gear
Now I'm playing it real straight, and yes I couldn't hack it
You might think I'm lazy, but turn around and smack it
Because I can tell what's going on
It's hip to be []
(with apologies to Huey)

Yes! I'll try to make it this time.

I couldn't take the late nights

Which is why we should start at 11am.

Okay. Last time, I had a more important drinking occassion, involving out of towners.

This time? I'm flying to London at 2155 that night.

The question is "can I run in, get a couple of cold ones, and make the flight?"

(Be there or be the null set?)

I'm right in the middle of finals, so I doubt I'll be able to make it. I'll be sure and try to make it out for the next one though! Have fun

Word. I'll be by for a drink or two.

I cannae' do it. Have fun without me!

Honestly, it's 11:18 am right now and I could totally go for a beer.

It's 4:33 right now, and I don't know where my steak and egg is.

Panic?

Oh that's it, I'm totally having a steak and egg tonight. (Can you believe I've never had one?)

I'll be down there by 5:20. No worries if you guys will be later than that, I brought my knitting. Although the scarf I'm working on may end up smelling like Billy Goat. Have to decide if this is a bug or a feature...
posted by misskaz at 2:45 PM on December 3, 2008


I will get there as soon as I can get out of here!
posted by crush-onastick at 3:13 PM on December 3, 2008


Sorry I'm not going to make it tonight. :-(

Have fun everyone.
posted by wfrgms at 5:54 PM on December 3, 2008


That was fun.

I FOUND MY STEAK AND EGG.

No need for anyone else to panic.

See you...next time?
posted by adamdschneider at 9:27 PM on December 3, 2008


It's *always* fun. You all don't know what you're missing.

And I finally got my whiskey in a glass. But I got Jamesson's and I asked for Bushmills.

*sigh* I'm sorry guys, absent again. I know I should really only be apologizing to myself, because I'm the one missing out on the good times and good people.

Next time!

Good times, good times.

Good times, good times.

Wasn't that the name of the extremely unpopular Led Zeppelin song they recorded after the whole band went on Zoloft?

Same album:
When the Levee Remains Intact
Clearheaded and Orderly
Communication Uptime
Over the Hills and Nearby
Intelligent Man in the Rain

Communication Uptime

It's a little-known fact that Led Zeppelin created the idea of 5 nines of uptime. Most people assume Plant was referring merely to five women who are 9s on the 1-10 scale of hotness.

And that, of course, allows us to draw the conclusion that Moby Dick is actually about a fail whale.

oops. Forgot to go into MetaTalk for, lessee, a month? So I missed it, maintaining my perfect record.
