How i Was Spent My XX-Mas Vacation – DAYS 2 & 3

[Beware Pronsurfers! Sorry about titling my 1st installment “XXX-Mas Vacation”. i see that about 40 people came here from a Google search of “XXX” and boy, they must’ve been let down in more ways than one. Hence, i’ve changed the title to “XX-Mas”, after Dos Equis beer. My most sincere apologies to those amongst you i misled. As you were.]

From the Juiced-box and for this holiday season: The Pogues – Fairytale of New York

[Press ‘Play’ for “You’re a bum, you’re a punk / You’re an old slut on junk / Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed / You scumbag you maggot / You cheap lousy faggot / Happy christmas, your arse, I pray god it’s our last.”]

Nothing new or real or excitingly different. Just to point out that i’ve remained hangover free for the four mornings since i arrived, but this’ll make more sense when you see the quantities i didn’t drink.

Day 2

Me, Jazzman and Mingus (names i’ll be using for my kids [boy 16, girl 13, respectively]) along with Old Grandad and Sea-Grams all went to a nice Mexican place. How do i know it was nice? It had a waterfall in the lobby and was so big Jazzman got lost coming back from the buffet (and no, for you South Park fans,  it was not a Casa Bonita). They had a killer all you can eat messican buffet and i had a frozen margarita to start off and then a Corono in a frosted mug with the meal. Too bad i forgot my camera, just like i forgot it at dinner that night when we had huge steaks on the grill and i had two glasses of wine.

Total Dammage

  • 1 frozen margarita
  • 1 Corona
  • 2 glasses of red wine


Day 3

Totally uneventful as far as drinking goes. Five beers and no stories.

Total Dammage

  • 3 Budweisers
  • 2 Bud Lights

  1. I LOVE THE POGUES!!!!!!!!

    I just had to get that out. OMG, that song is AWESOME. How is it that I do not know it — I really should. I want it. I guess I will just have to come back here and play it over and over.

    Yeah, I’m with ROD-ney *snicker* (j/k my man! I could not help the pun with the subject matter…) on the Beerection photo. Silly. Very South Park *and* XXX of you, my dear.

    Stay in good spirits. 🙂

    • Pogues is some good drinking music, is what. i’m kinda surprised you don’t know the song. It’s definitely one of their better known and the one that introduced me to them in the first place.

      Lol on The Rod. And if the photo is stimulating, it’s because i was thinking of you.

      Still in good spirits, and only on my second beer.

      • For me, it was Dirty Old Town, and the song from Sid & Nancy (I just looked it up, “Haunted.”) that I knew best. Then they did some stuff with The Dubliners I’d heard. I never did get any of their albums, though. What can I say, I have Pogues gaps. (Sounds like a disease, lol.) Oh, I just found this good bit: Sinéad o’Connor and Shane MacGowan singing “Haunted.” It’s really a pop-ish song. Sinéad looks pretty, though.

      • Aaaah, it’s easy for Sinead to look good when she has hair and it’s distracting how she has to keep looking down to read the lyrics. And, on top of all this, it’s not really a good drinking song. Can’t wait to be back in Yeaman to fill your Pogues gaps.

  2. Wow. You’re XXmas Vacation is looking pretty docile. It’s the holidays, give me something a little stronger – I HAVE FAMILY IN TOWN GOD DAMMIT! – beer just won’t cut it!

    Whoa, sorry. Feeling a little edgy. Working until 1 and then it’s Christmas bender time!!! Who’s gonna be the jolliest in the SLC?!?!?! ME!


    • Bridget! Thanks for stopping by before taking off, i’m flattered.

      As for the small quantities of booze i’m drinking, please be sure to tell my finacee, Miss Demeanor. i get all kinds of bonus points for other people remarking that kind of shit. Add to that i’m on vacation with my kids and i don’t like hard alcohol very much (except fruity frozen chick drinks and ameretto sours), you get yourself a no-hangover holiday. ‘Course if you want to party with me, there are some rules i’d consider breaking.

      Btw, i’m on vacation in a place closer to U-tatas than you’d ever believe and i saw my first Prius ever today (they don’t exist in Yeaman)! On the freeway, someone (ok, my dad) pointed out, “That there’s a Prius” and i ignored everything else while i thought about the Triplets of Cool.

      You ladies have a nice holiday season and, as always, thanks for patronizing me,

  3. ” i see that about 40 people came here from a Google search of “XXX” and boy, they must’ve been let down in more ways than one.”

    There is a lesson to be learned here about looking for sex in a bar. Is it true what they say about mixing beer with lite beer?

    • True ‘dat. There’s a metaphor about my boner and what people expect when they come to a bar.

      And just what do they say about mixing beer with lite beer, pray tell?

      Thaks for patronizing me, brother,

      Al K Hall
