Ride it, my pony

OK, Niki, where are the pony pictures?

We had a little party on friday and it was a smashing success. All the booze got dranken, and the pony got ridden. I threw together a costume as the Orion slave girl from Star Trek at the last minute based on a gold dress and a love of Trek, and it was OK but the green skin paint drove me insane and I wiped it off. I am still finding little spots of green paint in various places where the sun don't shine. Other notable costumes included safety guy and the Shroud of Turin. There were various chants of stuff like "i'm loud, i'm proud, i'm the shroud" etc, etc. I ate two bites of some killer pot brownies and let me tell you it was the best. The new Animal Collective was a little intense but mostly I just laughed my ass off at everything.

There is now talk that the Halloween show might be on December 3rd? Nobody wants to go if they can't see it written about in Heckasac later. I think that's why, anyway. I'm just happy the Mac is coming together but I want to start an online petition right now to INSIST that they play "secondhand news" unless they want the crowd to loudly chant bullshit during their entire set.

Saturday night I went to see Capote and I recommend it. I'm re-reading In Cold Blood right now so that was perfect timing for me. Unlike Jim Lane, I find In Cold Blood to be a gripping page turner. On Liv's recommendation I'm going to Netflix "murder by death" which is a Peter Sellers vehicle which also stars Truman Capote. I just love his voice, at least as imitated by Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and I want to hear the real thing.

Last night, we checked out Chada Thai and it was fucking delicious. I have to sample the Pattaya Thai Pad Thai again before I can be sure, but the Pad Thai at Chada may be the best in Sac, in my opinion. The only thing wrong was that it completely lacked spice, but other than that, great. The squid salad (recommended by Alice I think?) was also wonderful, and I was stoked because without the recommendation I never would have thought to order it. Once again, Taste of Thai was pretty packed and Chada was empty except for us and two stoned dudes, but I found the food to be better than Taste of Thai.

Murder By Death is hilarious! It gets compared to Clue a lot, but I think MBD is way better. Pony pictures coming soon.

It's not on DVD yet, unforunately.

alice said...

i feel vindicated. someone else thinks chada is good and therefore i was not hallucinating. and the fact that it's always empty just has me baffled.

I'd like to give a Shroud out to all my peeps, especially Cobra Commander/Edith Bunker.

Thanks for letting me sleep on the floor. I need to remember to take my drinks in the right order. Bluegh...

Oh yeah, and Murder By Death is pretty damn funny. Alec Guinness is especially silly, which I think is something he liked doing, but he was such a phenomenal actor, he never got to do comedy much. Just stuffy old Englishmen and Obiwan.

That was one loud, proud, plowed, well-endowed Shroud!

The shrowd does rather appreciate being so kow-toa-ed.

I ended up dressing as Colonel Klink on saturday night. It went over with little to no effect, I was just sitting around at Old Tavern with the only two people that I knew there. Smitty woulda got a kick out of that, I think.

beckler said...

hey shroud-
you can crash on my floor anytime. what was the rhyme we made up for the drinks you had had and their order? also, that disaronno was tasty. what did you say you like to mix it with? it was good just on the rocks.

werenotdeep said...

Beer before liquor, never been sicker; liqour before beer, you're queer, er, I mean in the clear.

Disaronno goes good with Dr. Pepper. But that's just to stretch it out, it's pretty good that way. It really is best straight up or on the rocks.

I'm not sure that Whitey ever slept the whole night. He kept waking me up and at first I thought it was just as I was finally dozing off, but then about the fourth time, I realized that it was starting to get light outside.

I also shouldn't have parked under that tree, because I just had my car washed, then it rained, and now my car looks and feels like the floor of a movie theater.

beckler said...

your car got jizzed?!? or did you not mean that kind of movie theater? sorry about the whitey thing, i kinda tried to kick him out. i was worried about that little girl cuz she wouldn't wake up even when i shook her, but she was OK.

Another good rhyme to remember is brew before rum before irish cream before weed brownie - never better.

werenotdeep said...

Yeah. He didn't quite get it, did he. It was okay, though, at least he didn't try to wake me up for something. I actually slept pretty well for the most part, once my guts settled down.

He was actually pretty well behaved...for Whitey.

Disaronno is better with coke. it it tastes like Dr. Pepper, but it's not as sweet.

Smitty said...

Dang, I've got the making of a lovely Bob Crane costume. The one of him as Col Hogan, since I've already tried the bludgeoning. Rim shot.

werenotdeep said...

Maybe next year we can get Londsdale to dress as Schultz, too.

At first when I read that I thought you said Bob Crane was dressed as Col. Hagan.
