Stupid Blogger!

Well, for some stupid reason, Blogger failed me on my last post – posting the picture of me dressed as Heino for Halloween. For those of you who saw it, I hoped you liked it. I had to take it down, as Blogger wouldn’t load up with those pics.

What’s Wrong with Jennifer?
So, my wife reads the celebrity rags magazines, and I “accidentally” noticed on the cover of one of them that Vince Vaughn cheated on Jennifer Aniston, or so this magazine claims. If this is true, what’s next for Jennifer, Screech? Think about it – when she was with Brad Pitt, she was at the top of the mountain. Then, she went with Vince, and even though he’s funny, I would think that he is a few pegs below Brad. So,what’s wrong with her, anyway? Why can’t she keep a guy for more than a few years? Have I spent too much time on this lame topic?

I Need Your Help
I think I may have posted something similar to this a while ago, but I need a new cool drink to order at the bars when I’m not in the mood for beer. I’ve gotten very sick of Captain and Cokes, and I’ve run my course with Absolute and 7-up. Long Island Iced Teas are too much of a summer drink. I’m willing to give anything a try at this point – not sure if I’m a scotch guy, whiskey guy, or vodka guy – I’ll try anything once. Any suggestions would be appreciated (and please, no drinks with umbrellas in them).

Old Video Games
A few coworkers and I got to talkin’ a few weeks ago about classic arcade games. We discussed some of the obvious ones – Asteroids, Space Invaders, Pac Man, Elevator Action … but there was one game that I remembered playing a whole lot back in the day, and I hadn’t thought about this game until this conversation. It was called Champion Baseball, and basically, you would score a lot of runs in the first couple of innings, and then you’d try to hold off the other team from beating you (if you were good, this lasted until about the 7th or 8th inning). I think I may have won once, but I’m not sure. In case you are interested, you can see some screen shots here.

Did you really just talk about Jennifer and Vince? She used to be high on the hottie list, but everything she does is the same: same movie, same character. *yawn* Oh, and DodgeBall and Wedding Crashers both ruled. Moving on..

Not sure I could help you on the drink thing, bro. Red Devil is the only thing I can think of, don't even know what's in it.

Never played that game..dope graphics, though. My arcade baseball game was "World Series Baseball" with the little stick controller that you would pull back and let go to hit. It also was from the catcher's pov. Neat-o.

mixed-drink.com has a lot of suggestions

Here's a suggestion for you. It's called...

Fat Ho on a Bike

1 oz. Amaretto
2 oz. Cola
1 oz. Tequila

Mix ingredients in an old fashioned glass with ice.

(a) jennifer aniston is hot, no matter what.

(3) that game reminded me of RBI Baseball on NES.. those games were great.

i loved when u had 2 men on, you could run one guy to 2nd, and draw the throw there... then send the other guy home. gotta love the glitches. like the wrap around in old hockey games.

You have lost your mind.

Jennifer Aniston - who gives a fuck? Oh Los, I am so disappointed.

Best old school game for this broad would be Centipede. As you know I am sports retarded.

Drink: How bouta Jack n' Coke?

Schooskie said...

Vince Vaughn did not cheat, he's suing the rag that published it.

try an amaretto sour.

lisa said...

try a flavored vodka and club soda .. not too sweet. the apple vodka, club and a spash of cranberry is vaguely reminiscent of applekorn and washington apples -- 2 things i know you hate!

btw, i think vince is better than brad. angelina has emasculated him.

Jeff said...

If Jennifer Aniston got dumped by Screech, her choices would probably be Urkel or porn. That is, Urkel OR porn -- not porn with Urkel.

While it's tempting to recite the joke about ordering a BJ so you'll get one, I recommend Hurricanes -- esp. if you're not driving.

Los said...

B - Red Devil, eh? I shouldn't take your advice on alcohol, but I'll look into it.

Rev - I'm not huge on Amaretto, but I like tequila.

IAM - RBI baseball was the single greatest console game of it's time.

Fair Maiden - Centipede was good. Hey, I just wanted to show that I could talk about more than just sports - geez!!!

Skooskie - Hollywood is fake anyway.

Lisa - I likes me some flavored vodka!

Jeff - I'll just use "the force" when I drive ... just kidding.

El Padrino said...

Jack and Coke is my thing, thing

Vodka Tonic, popular right now
Gin N Tonic, classic
Amaretto Sour, a bit gay

After a meal I like a Kahula and Milk or Grand M straight up.

Los said...

ELP - Thanks man - I've always had a tough time swallowing Jack and even Maker's Market.

Fairmaiden327 said...

Los: No ill will towards you. I abhor giving celebs more attention than deserved. Altho I do love Aniston and Vaughn. Brad is like playdoh -- you can mold him, too pliable.

-B- said...

Smokin - Where's the "fat" in that fat ho? You hafta stir it with a hot dog, mmmmmmm!!

Eric said...

I think thats a pretty good question about Aniston. How is it that someone that hot can't keep a guy, she has a be a huge bitch, or secretly have a penis or something.

I personally am a fan of the vodka tonic. Simple, classic, delicious. Also if you can drink martinis without looking pretentious and like you're trying to hard than you're pretty badass.

Never heard of that game, may have been before my time.

Los said...

FM - I hate celebrity gossip shows, celebrity reality shows, celebrity mags ... I just wanted to show my range.

B - A hot dog stirrer? I think I might puke.

Eric - that baseball game came out in 1982 - I'm guessing before your time. And, I'm not a big fan of olives, so classic martinis are out (although I love chocolate martinis, pineapple martinis, and apple martinis - but not very manly).

OMG...OK this is the 3rd time I have tried this...so if you don't get it. I am so going to fire Blogger.

~rubs hand together and presses fingers backward~
OK, I thought you would neverask!!!!! I am so excited. OK! Based on the current order of drinks, here is what I would recommend for you if I WERE YOUR bartendar:
1. "Kocomo" Orange vodka, malibu rum, splash of Pinapple juice and 7-up. (for a shot leave out the 7-up)
2.Grape Vodka and Energy drink. Tastes just like grape kool-aid. YUMMIE! YOu can do this as a "bomber" too.
3. Soco sour. This is a "whiskey sour" just using the new southern comfort lime...It's sweeter than a regular Whiskey sour. ;o)
4. Pink Pussy. Who doesn't like these? It's Watermelon pucker, vodka and 7-up or as a shot...

If you are going to try the Gin and tonic, ask for a mint julip. Much better and the mint kills the "aftertaste" of the gin. ;o) IMHO. I am not a Gin gal...forgive me. I am a vodka club soda w/ lemon or lime.

OK I can't believe that you are commenting on a hollywood issue...did your wife slip you some hormones after that whole finding the pics thing?

*picks up jaw on floor*

We were deprived...we only had pong! LOL ;o) Seen it done a couple of times...LOL ;o)

Steph said...

Order a Mule. Not the Donkye variety, unless you're into that of course :P

It's Vodka, Lime, Ginger Ale with a twist of lemon. Sublime!!

los, morning.

Hey ya Los :)

I don't drink much, so I can't help. I'm mostly Vodka Tonics, Sex on the Beach-es?, and Coronas. I have to high five you on the anti-amaretto thing, though, I don't really like it either.

I think Jennifer Aniston is a doll and perhaps these guys are not living up to her standards? I always feel bad for celebrities cause they really have to struggle to have normal relationships. I guess that's the price you pay for fame. Remember, she didn't want kids and Brad did, so their lives were just going in different directions. Okay, enough about that.

Funny thing--tonight I was trying to explain Super Mario Bros to my daughter. I used to play 8-bit regular old nintendo Baseball like crazy--I even think that's what the kid in the movie The Princess Bride was playing, too.

Have a great one!
