Pris and I pretty much won the car with the slot machines around it equivelent of Thanksgiving leftovers. To sum it up, it was an entire paper bag full of leftovers. I'm talking filled to the brim packed bag that your Grandma would throw her back out trying to lift because it's so damn heavy full. It didn't even have just your normal turkey day meal in it. We scored about 7 inches of summer sausage, about 4 bucks worth of high quality sliced cheeses, and a bag full of the best mushroom appetizers your weak stomach has ever tasted. Oh I almost forgot, we got an entire apple pie. And not just your average Sam's club cardboard crap pie, this thing is like the 50 inch prize musky that no one has ever caught, but it's between no less than two pie tins, because that was that only way it was ever getting back to Minneapolis. This thing is a double fister plus a spotter just to make sure. If Sam didn't have to stop and get more gas on the way home a couple of times due to the emense weight of these leftovers, I would be more surprised than Pat Robertson taking off Rupal's dress to get a better look at her legs.
Enough of turkey day, this update is long over due, so it will be long. I actually wrote notes for this post in class one day, because I didn't want to forget anything. I am however, currently not next to those notes, so they won't be used. First up, crowded buses. I got on the 16 on Friday and it was full, not ridiculously full, but full nonetheless. Of course the guy sitting next to where I was standing who looks like the brain child of Jeff Foxworthy and a ferret starts yelling about how the bus is full before it is even close. Then, a couple minutes later, this guy failing to look as cool as a frat boy (ya, apparently it is harder than it looks) says (verbatim), "There's gonna be a Fox 9 investigation about how the Bus company puts students in danger." I couldn't tell if it was a threat or a prediction, but either way, I hope Fox does it. Then he says (once again, verbatim), "I'm sick of companies making capital for the money." Now I'm used to Poli Sci majors throwing around words for the sake of throwing around words, but what the hell is that supposed to mean? I almost kicked him in the teeth right there while explaining to him how capitalism, money, free markets, and government transit systems work. It is idiots like this that always remind me why we need to enforce IQ tests in order to not be sterilized at the age of 13.
