Run with Sporks pointed down

Okay, so I'm sorry that I didn't post the next day. (And I thought the useage of swear words was a little harsh.) Apart from my brother's middle school graduation, my sister's high school graduation, a whole bunch of family stuff, my first advertising campaign where I get to be the art director, and my 23rd birthday, this weekend was pretty busy.

With that said, y'all need to fly out to Portland for the Nike Run Hit Wonder Drew Willis, Messa, and Jolly ran it last year. And they can tell ya it was awesome! Running to the music of 80s reject bands. And then after you run 10k (6.something miles for you Americans) you get to drink a beer and listen to Devo. Yeah!!! So fly out and join me running. Jolly you in?

Okay, lastly I've always wanted to get this in print, so here it goes. Back in high school my buddy Jeff Herbage and I were on a ski lift when this dialogue happened: "Dude, it's f***ing cold!" "You know what would be awesome right now?" "Hot chocolate." "Yeah, okay, but I was thinking strippers up here with us." So then and there J Herb and I thought up our line of Matt and Jeff's companies starting with our "Ski lift Stripper Gondolas--winter transportation and Entertainment."

From there we came up with a new sport "Putt Putt Bowling (or maybe Bowl Bowl Golf)" where it's like normal bowling except with putt putt obstacles--windmills, moats, clown's mouths, and lanes that bend and you have to bank your shot.

Another idea was to open a nice sit-down restaurant called "Sporks" where you receive a spork and knife. And I'm talking full on metal spork. I've never seen any spork except the plastic 3rd grade lunchroom untensil. These metal sporks would kick so much ass that people would steal them. And while we at Sporks don't condone or promote theivery, we do understand.

These are just a few ideas for "Matt and Jeff's" combination companies. If any of y'all have any ideas for combining two things into a singular store or service that Jeff and I can use, you are encouraged to post them.
Aight. That's all.

It was Sunday, but you still can buy me a drink. I'm going to try to come down to Eugene for graduation. And then I can buy you one too

Sorry to swear at you, Giraffe, I never knew you had the sensitivity of a high school girl.

Happy birthday, by the way. Pretend I'm buying you a beer because I'm actually unable to.

If "Sporks" ever opened, I would have a real tough time deciding between that and "Hooters." Hmmm, hot chicks in skimpy outfits and kick-ass buffalo wings or metal spoon-fork hybrids? I'd go for Sporks every time. Just a brilliant idea.

Keep up the good work, ass.
