Balls fat balls
Balls fat big fat balls

That's a version of an cappella drill that Nahks and Rosie made up. I'll explain when I'm sober. Right now, I am teh fux0red. We bowled against this cool team with these cool guys and one of them is really nice and buys pitchers of beer for people who do nifty shit. Well...Jeff had a stray pin in the gutter and three pins in the lane, and he somehow managed to bounce the ball off of said stray pin and pick up the spare. It was the goddamn funniest thing I've ever seen happen at bowling. The guy (Chuck) thought it was worth a pitcher, so he bought us one. It was my designated day to be lax with my diet (on one day on the weekend, I'll eat foods I normally don't have, like Ben and Jerry's arrgghhblllrggh *drool*), so I figured I'd help Jeff with the beer. I only had two, but that got me messed up enough to be in that surreal never-never land on the cusp of drunkenness, where I didn't trust myself to drive but I was very talkative and friendly (I had a nice random conversation with another guy in the league) and didn't have any problem bowling. I wound up with a 100something, a 130something and a 120something, which is over my current average (101), so me happy camper. The skillz of /dev/null are slowly becoming mad. And I got to kick a stray pin out of the lane, which was fun because running down the gutter felt weirdly dreamlike. Now I just have to drink a fuckload of water so I won't get a headache or anything tomorrow. I should be OK, though. 2 beers isn't Jack Shit.

Now I finally understand why people are so fond of buying pitchers during league. It helps you relax and doesn't fuck with your bowling (in fact, I think it can even help unless you actually get drunk). I should make Sundays my treat day more often. Yay beer!
Current Mood: schnockered

Ehehe... yeah, I discovered the Magic Drunkenness Range last night. Somewhere around one and a half beers in, I was converting spares without even thinking about it. But afterwards? Yeesh. Especially when I was sober. >_< And I think I've managed to get my average up to around 80. I keep getting 7 or 9 on the first ball, then miss the spare. >_

So we had simultaneous random bowling under the influence? w00tness. ^_^

My average was hovering around there for quite a while, and I have that exact same problem with missing the spares, especially when the one remaining pin is the 7 or the 10. Either one can be a pain in the ass to hit with a hook (though the 7 is theoretically easier if you're a righty like me). My scores are finally going up because I figured out a throw that hits the pocket (or at least comes close), so I get more strikes than I used to, which makes up for the stupid 9-pin frames.

By the time I got home, I was full-on drunk, and yet I managed to play Minesweeper pretty well while sobering up. Also, I felt a little bit off this morning, but that was it for the aftereffects. Considering that I generally get sore teeth if I have anything more than one drink in a night, this is amazing. I think that it was the sugar in the drinks, not the alcohol, that did that to me because I've gotten tooth discomfort (albeit to a far lesser degree) from too many sweets and beer doesn't have sugar in it. Conclusion: if I want to get drunk and not have any problems eating with my left side of the mouth the next day, beer is my friend. I'm not going to start drinking a lot or anything (with my tolerance, I really can't =P), but at least it's nice to know for future reference.
