Beerhounding in Tempe

On a Tuesday after work, we found ourselves at World of Beer.  Lurleen met us on the patio, at the sticky railing* with a cold Kilt Lifter. *Why was the counter sticky?  A question that will also arise later. With the Kurgan nowhere in sight and only mere mortals left to moon, it was time […]

Curbhunter Fails

Curbhunter: it’s not for the weak or stupid or poor. Unlike so many other things in my life lately, two of three IS bad. This guy seems to have avoided all three:

  • not weak, because balls enough to park a Range Rover outside the shithole complex that makes Mesa Ridge Apartments look like luxury condos.

Pandora’s Box

So I am kid 2 us driving to school.  We stop at the Kwik-E-Mart for a beverage and some cash.  We hop back in the car.  As the car starts, from somewhere, the first few bars of this… start blasting. However, the radio is off (because: kid driving). WTH? Where’s that music from? Kid 2: Dad, that’s […]
