Oh dudes...what a load of slackassery has been going on with regard to this blog!
I hope you haven't deserted me, because then I'll just have to add that to the list of reasons why I should tie two bricks to my ankles and jump into the deepest most polluted part of the Hooch.
So, I totally judged this Reading Bowl for High School students on Saturday morning...
I probably need to explain what that is don't I? I sometimes forget that the vast majority of people are significantly less nerdy than I am.
Ok, so like this Reading Bowl is basically a big trivia contest based off of a list of 20 books that the little Reading Bowl team has had to read over the course of a couple of months.
So anyway, I was asked to serve as all like a non-biased challenge judge and shiz...like if some kid's all "Um, whatever, that's totally the right answer, you're cheating me" then I had to all open the book and like find the real answer and shit.
Serious stuff you guys.
So the thing is getting ready to start and I'm sort of off to the side moving papers around in an important looking way...when I hear this one dude say to his teammate:
"Hey. Are we nerds?"
Teammate: Depends on who you ask I guess.
CuriouslyNerdy: (looks around at other participants) Nah. We're cool then.
It was the best thing ever. Like, we basically could not be any nerdier unless we were like at a Star Trek FanFic Reading Bowl.
OH! And I had to come into work after the Reading Bowl right? And this high school girl comes in and she is like BATSHIT nuts for The Twilight Saga. Like just going APE shit. Like I NEED NEW MOON! GIVE ME NEW MOON! IF I DON'T LEAVE HERE WITH NEW MOON I WILL START FUCKING SOME SERIOUS SHIT UP!
So I'm all "I feel you" and we go to track down the book, and she's like:
Edward4-Eva:All of my friends HATE these books!
Edward4-Eva: Well, they say that REAL vampires don't sparkle.
First off? Hilarious. Secondly? REAL vampires?
Most of you know, from either this blog, or the plethora of Facebook photos, that Im pretty much obsessed with The Yellow River Game Ranch. Well, Lurrrver17 is getting there as well, so we went with SeeStephGo on Sunday before the SuperBowl. You guys? We stayed there? FOR FOUR AND A HALF HOURS.
It? Was a beautiful thing. And no kids put giant rocks on bunnies or ANYTHING!
The best moment BY FAR was when Lurrrver17 and I start walking down to the barnyard, and like, literally, from ALLLLL the way in the back, the little black goat that Lurrrver17 tried to steal last time, just starts like RUNNING toward him. Just completely RUNNING straight for him! And Lurrrver17 just like kneels down on the ground with his arms wide open like "come to me dear one!". There were violins soaring lyrically, and tears, and slow-mo camera action. It was the fucking most hysterically wonderful thing I have ever seen. I mean this goat literally RAN INTO Lurrrver17's arms! And on top of that? The goat FOLLOWED us around! Like totally dodging other people who were trying to feed it to come be with us.
It's totally OUR goat.
OH! And Alcohol Joe? Has NOW begun leaving half-smoked cigarettes all over the library...like a trail of them in his wake...IN THE LIBRARY.
And last night? He totally stumbled up to the RefDesk to hit on my co-worker.
AlcoholJoe: I jush wanna tell yoush, that yoush haf da most boootiful eyesh. Da firs time I came in here...I was jush like, whoooo, man...shesh boootiful! And like your hair...and like everything. Like...jush boootiful.
I was laughing so hard I literally just slid down onto the ground and under the desk. It's like I work in a seedy bar.
