do have to give a big shout out to the REI Basecamp tent for keeping me nice and dry during the thunderstorms. Here’s what I don’t get it: On sunday my ass muscles were sore. WTF? I didn’t really strain myself losing that game of Bocce. I can only assume it was from sleeping on the ground, like a damned savage. Somehow I got all out of whack by not having my body pillow, or some random broad to hold all night long. This is the feeling of my body failing me.

Anyway, the reason I was not sleeping in a bed was because Co-host’s wifey was having her birthday. There was a lot of booze and a pig getting roasted. That was rad. If I can find any pics of it I will post them up. A big thanks again to Co-host and wifey for providing good times.

Step 2:

Flipped through the Onion and found this:

Apparently the extent of the Airport Lounge’s Social Media campaign is writing the word Facebook on their ads. And not even in the FB font. Brand standards be damned. I suspect the Airport Lounge needs to step up it’s game.
