What's On Tap


Tonight is the big (not really) after work bash for crazy girl but before that one of the principals and I are taking her out for a goodbye lunch.  I don't know how I got roped into it....well actually I do.  Principal said he should take her out to lunch and I heartily agreed and waited for the other shoe to drop (that I should attend) but he didn't say anything of the kind.  Woot.  I'm going to be spending the evening with her and surely that's enough.

Nope.

He came back from reception and said that when he invited her, she asked if Josie could come too.  OMFG.  I was like erm....um.....alright.  Biatch!  I sent her and email saying wtf and she replied about how I'd make it fun.  I'll make her ass fun! lol  It's free food, so there's that, but sheesh. 

Oh and because of a last minute change I'm hosting Noodles' annual superbowl party.  I'd done it for quite a few years but since I joined my poker league last year, I stopped.  This year I also declined because the big end of year league tourney and bash is on Saturday all day/night and I didn't want to kill myself cooking for a huge party the next day as there wouldn't be enough time.  Nope, I definitely wasn't doing it, even though they asked.  More than once.  When I say no it's no!

But.....

The guy would finally agreed to host it has Direct TV and Direct TV lost their contract with channel 7 so DTV viewers no longer get channel 7.  Anyone want to guess which channel is showing the Super Bowl?

Yup.  Fawk.

So I agreed but said I wouldn't have time to do my usual truckload of cooking and they were fine with that.  I'll still make stuffed jalapenos, stuffed mushrooms, a spiral ham and deli platters.  Someone is bringing pizza so no one will starve.  Plus I'll be baking a homemade dessert - not sure what yet.

The Saturday before is the huge league finale and that's the game that I'll be focusing on.  I soooo want to win the end of year game, as much for the glory as for the huge cash prizes.  There will be "free" food and booze courtesy of league dues, but I will be abstaining from free drinking <---miracle right there, to keep me sharp for the win. :)

If I don't post tomorrow, it's because something horrible happened to me tonight at Beerworks.  Pray for me!

PS Haven't played all week on Black Chip Poker, but I'll be getting my groove on over there Friday night.

I read all of that and the only phrase that sticks out in my mind is

"I'll make her ass fun"

Have a great time tonight at the Bar.
I'm thinking of having a small get together for the big game myself, but I'll buy pizza and wings and someone will bring some good BBQ and the world will be happy.
Oh, and booze :)

Hmmm I should just go to your party and save myself the hassle.

Who is her mother's daughter? Doubt it is your big sister. How can you rest knowing that there may be a guest that doesn't leave bloated?

But, I am glad to see you won't be doing much cooking. I mean, this isn't important like the Feast of Saint Anthony, so only cooking for hours instead of days is appropriate.

Point well taken Ken. Damn, you're good. I have to deal with all those confusing emails you've sent me - don't send anymore! :P

When does said league start again? Can another local join said league...hmmmmmmmmm?

VJ - I had a similar reaction to Ken's when reading the list of stuff you planned on cooking. I'm wondering what kind of spread you do when you've got a bit of time.

Anyhoo, enjoy Saturday and Sunday (esp. Sunday!) GO P A T R I O T S !

Well all that stuff is kinda quick stuff. I deleted all the long cooking stuff like lasagna, stuffed shells, meatballs, twice backed potatoes, chicken parm...all that stuff is what takes so long.

If we did pot luck, we'd have 16 bags of cheese curls!

Josie said...

pokah dave, you have to be a black man or lesbian to get in. :P lol jk, I think it starts again in a month....i'll find out at superbowl.

lightning36 said...

You get asked to host a party at the last minute, you agree, and you feel obligated to knock yourself out cooking and preparing for the party? Does the word "potluck" mean anything to you?
