Rule 1: Check the Ring, yo

This comes from my trip to Houston. In Novemeber 2009 I traveled to Houston, TX with some of my fellow Sounders FC Supporters for the away playoff Match vs the Houston Dynamo. I flew out Friday morning, the game was Saturday and flew back Sunday afternoon.

The night before the match, the Sounders Supporters in Houston planned a gathering for drinks and such. We met up at some local pub in the city and for the most part took over their outside dining area. Some of the more brave locals stayed outside and conversed with us, most fled when the rowdy group in Rave Green showed. I sat at a long picnic table, outside and ordered a local Blonde Ale. On my left were fellow Sounders Supporters. On the right of me, were 3 of the locals. 2 women and a man.

During the course of some pretty good drinking, I was conversiong with the locals. The local man was sitting next to the local women and they began to flirt and kiss a bit. The women next to me sees this and begins to get upset. I asked her why and she said "She is engaged to my brother, and that is not my brother".

I say in my very drunken state, "Oh, maybe we should give them a few minutes of privacy and go find a dark corner". I probably did some very bad wink at that point. She responds by holding up her left hand and showing a quite large wedding ring. She thens "Maybe later" and takes off the ring and puts it into her pocket. Next she asks "What are you drinking?" I tell her which microbrew I'm drinking. She leaves and comes back with a pitcher.

After about an hour of more drinking and talking, she leans in and says "You're really cute. Where are you staying tonight?". I tell her which hotel, she tells me its in a bad place and her house is in a much better place. She offers to take me home with her. At this point, the red flag comes up. Take me home with her? Where her husband is? And the gun collection she was talking about earlier?

Before I could answer (Mind was saying no, but my lips would have said 'Yes yes') the 'couple' on the other side of the table leaves. She sees this, says "I need to make sure they don't do something stupid, be right back." and kisses me on the cheek. I don't see her the rest of my night. No big loss.

What did slightly annoy me about this night was having to sleep on the couch in my Hotel room that night. The girl I split the room with decided to have another Sounder fan crash with her. He got the bed and her, I got the couch. Did I mention I was the one who paid for the room?

Anyway, this was just a teaser. Should have another one coming up soon.

Rule 2: Assume there is a kid

New blog format

After hearing my stories about dates, my co-workers keep telling me to write them down and post them. So I finally have gotten around to redoing this blog in that format. I'll get the past stories up in a semi-regular fashon. They will be in no particular order and formatted like rules. I'll post the first one later.

I have no shame...(part 2)

Apparently being on the Speedate app in facebook is shameless. What's really sad is some of the lies I seen on my friends profiles. No matter though.

Recently, I have not been up to much. Just switched over to a graveyard shift at work. Trying to be active during the day on off days is interesting. I have lost sense of days and time...makes it tough to remeber when I said or did something.

In between hockey seasons for watching and playing. I am checking out the Sounders FC. Interesting stuff...

Apparently I have replaced Pablo...

I am good at entertaining my team at work with relationship drama. Previously Pablo would do this, now the torch has passed to me. Most of it stems from the long drawn out crud with the flower...thankfully I am done with all at that. Took up too much of my time and stressed me out too much.

Other than that, mostly have been just fighting a cold and keeping busy. Haven't had too much lately that was blog worthy.

To enjoy the ride as best as you can and not get too caught up on what others think.

Interview with a vampire...I mean Mizzle...

This interview meme has been floating around for a while:
1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. (I get to pick the questions).
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions

1. Why have you stopped writing in Mizzle’s Place on the Web?
Well it seemed my posts were more boring that I thought. And once I realized most of my readers were within earshot of my cube, I decided to yell the stories at them...whether they wanted to hear them or not.

2. If you had the chance to face off with any NHL player who would it be and why?
Face off as in fight or take a face off against them? Fight...lets see, I wouldnt mind Dion Phaneuf...or Sean Avery. Face off? Maybe Sidney Crosby or Ovechkin...I would lose horribly either way, but it would be an experience.

3. If you could fight one person, living or dead, who would it be and why?
Harrison Ford. That be an interesting one.

4. Who is your favorite Star Wars character?
Jengo Fett. I like the father more than the son.

5. Why do you feel compelled to make your co-workers say ‘goddamn it’?
I only feel compelled to make Wiwille speak the goddamn it. Usually anyone else is an accident...
