Have a Drink on Me

Back home, since every religious group seeks validation by having days in the calendar marked in their honor, I'm used to at least 1 religious holiday a month. Someone died for our sins? Chug, chug, chug! A demon was slayed viciously on an angry lady's tongue? Bottoms up! Life in a secular nation is fun.

Holidays in the American calendar are few and far flung. They're conveniently tooled to give the salaried class extended weekends, and I'm down with that. A certain holiday gives ladies an excuse to wear very little in public, and is one of my favorite days in the year. I don't care about dressing up, but certainly don't miss out on the parties. Halloween this year was a general dud, as the women were covered up more than a 50 year old Saudi in a prince's harem. I didn't let that affect me, and highlights of the night include

- one of the guys in our group felt up a dozen women and came this close to being beaten up. I hit him a few times just to be sure
- said despo wandered away from us, and lacking a cell and wallet, was near impossible to track
- I pushed the group to drink on anyway and shots after shots were poured.
- complimented a lesbo bar tender that Bird (her jersey) was better than Magic and got free drinks for the night
- got everyone else wasted
- picked up a fight with random first gen American
- picked up a fight with random Indian dude about computer security
- campaigned to legalize it
- spoke to 4 different cops and tried to get their opinion on "illegal occupation of US in Iraq"
- offered random Indian dude a position in my team (the fuck I get to decide)

Most of the night is a blur, and I woke up near naked next to my lady and she wasn't even that mad at me. I take it the night was a success.

Hey, If you can't beat 'em, join 'em

I don't know what it was like in the old days - or in Government companies - but the private-sector ones have gotten wise to this whole secularism business. What they do is, they painstakingly compile a list of all possible religious / cultural holidays (about 40 of them), and then let you take any TWO of your favourites off. Life in a secular nation isn't quite as rosy as you paint it.

Which way were the four cops leaning on the illegal occupation of Iraq?

@Get - Join whom?

@Rohan - Old days? How old do you think I am? :) 2 of the cops had no comment, 2 others just went away

@Bird - yeah, whatever I remember of it, anyway

@Rassles - I suspect you love anything that involves inebriation
