Yael, you pup.

My wife turned 40 on Saturday and we celebrated by chartering a bus for 35 of us to go to Primm, NV for a little gambling and drinking. OK, a lot of drinking.

I did an unintended IF all day Saturday and consumed about 10 beers, a shot of Jaeger, and a couple of more beers. Almost no food. Result? Still hungover today. But, I won $500 playing video poker.

Enough about me. Happy birthday to you. I can almost remember being 28.

It's when I met the wife. So long ago.

A while back I was in Brugge, in Belgium. I was hanging out with some folk from the Netherlands while doing some work stuff in Terneuzan (back when I worked, nyuck, nyuck), and they were feeding me these Belgian craftbrews all day.

"Steve, they only make 50 barrels of this a year! Steve, this is, perhaps, the best trappist ale in the world! Steve, you liked the Duval, this is even better!"

It was brutal. The bastards.

So, on top of that, they showed me this chocolate shop that had absolutely mindboggling chocolate.

So, beer and chocolate for 16 hours. I didn't feel all to good the next day, but I did feel good enough to get in a half of a rugby game in Terneuzan with a borrowed kit.

Ron--that sounds like fun! No gambling or drinking for me but I got out of a speeding ticket on Saturday, so I'm happy.

Shaf--One of my mentor teachers told his whole classroom about his mother in law who had allergies. She finally went to a doctor to get testing to find out what she was allergic to. He told her she was allergic to cockroaches. She said, "What does that have to do with me being sick?" It was then that her doctor informed her that chocolate has ground up cockroaches.

I looked this up on snopes and didn't find it. But I did find this page:
http://www.pathlights.com/Public%20E.../chocolate.htm It's an anti-caffeine propoganda page, but I haven't been able to determine whether the cockroach percentage information is true or not yet.

Needless to say, I haven't had any chocolate since. It's only been three weeks, but I've been trying to determine whether the super bourgeouis fancy special organic chocolate will be cockroach-free.

Yael,
That's cool. Driving is always a gamble. This time you won.

Shaf,
That sounds like my worst hangover ever. 20 years ago when I was going to school in England (in Cheltenham). One night, countless different beers bought for me by a "big brother," a week long hangover where nothing stayed in my body for long. Was probably mild alcohol poisoning for all I know.

Good times, good times.

Bring on the cockroaches.
