Bring Shrimp and Hookers!

Dave and Lisa are in town.

You realize what this means. Normally a late night of excess which may or may not contain any or all of the following:
Vast quantities of Reno casinos, dive bars, dance floors, sushi, swingers clubs, pole dancing, laughter, strippers or nuts. Not to exceed 10% peanuts.

Last night was pretty tame although your intrepid reporter didn’t get to bed until 4:00 in the morning.

Oh sure it always starts out innocently enough. We hang out at Chez Noir for a few hours, enjoy hor d’oeuvres, catch up and try to decide what the hell to do with the rest of the evening. This time we didn’t decide what to do until we physically left the house at 10:20.

We did call Mike several times to see if he’d bring more shrimp and some hookers but he declined on both counts. Probably because we woke him up.
I did get to hear the story of the trip down from Washington though.

Seems Dave beeped going through the metal detector.
So he takes off his jacket and shoes. Still beeps. Security stops him. He takes off his belt and still beeps. Finally they wave the hand held metal detector over his pants pocket and BEEP BEEP BEEP.
They ask him what he’s carrying. He suddenly remembers.
A pocket FULL of bright shiny colorful foil wrapped condoms.
He is then instructed to empty his pockets in front of the now backed-up line of people.

Dave was let go with a stiff warning.

There’s a humorous story that goes along with transporting the bulk quantity of condoms but I’ll leave that for another blog. They’re the amusing off-brand ones too.
Suffice to say that on the last trip I was gifted with enough condoms to last quite a while. Sadly in my case, more than quite a while.

So we started out at my place, hit the pole dancing club and then went on from there and eventually wound up at the Cal-Neva for a quick breakfast at 2:30 am.
After some caloric intake it was back home to see if we could work on that whole eviction thing I’ve managed to avoid since their last visit.

Luckily today is St. Patrick’s Day and the drinking must have started early in the complex. There were no noise complaints. This despite Dave, all 6’3″ of him, standing on my office chair singing and dancing along with a hip-hop video at 3:00 am, Lisa and I laughing our asses off.

They went back to their hotel around 3:30 and I managed to get four hours of sleep.
This morning the house looks fine. The ashtray needed to be emptied, my meager liquor supply had been denuded and the shrimp are all gone. We never did get to the hookers.
Despite this a fine time was had by all.
Maybe next trip.

  1. Hello Miss Priss,
    Yes I’m a fan of Pynchon’s books, but in reality the title of the blog is a nod to Buckaroo Banzai. That little cult flick from the 80’s stole Pynchon’s corporate name of Yoyodyne and put it to good use as well.
    Many threads to that web. All of them good fun.

    Btw in two years you’re only the second person to recognize the Yoyodyne name -grin-



  2. Miss Priss:

    How interesting is it that someone chooses to focus on the title of a page here at wordpress (repeatedly) instead of the content? I’m thinkin’…not very. Your impressive knowledge of sci-fi writing is at best underwhelming (emphasis mine). A YOYO by any other DYNE would write the same. Try reading some of it and then making an intelligent comment (see above re: emphasis). Or are you just curious yellow?

    BTW real clever moniker. Which Asimov piece did you thieve that from?

    Pynchon this…


  3. When I saw the YoYoDyne name in a blogroll, it was an instaclick. It saddens me to hear that only two people have recognized that name in two years.

    I used to have a shooting script for Buckaroo Banzai with handwritten notes by Earl Mac Rauch in it, but it left with the ex.


  4. pieter,
    ah you have fine taste. i also have a shooting script for buckaroo banzai, which i procured years and years ago.
    it does make my heart go pitter-pat to know that there is at least one other person out there who recoginizes the name and film.

    don’t feel too badly about losing the script. (even though the handwritten notes are way cool) both of my divorces have something in common. the exes took most of my music collection and all of my money lol


  5. There’s a Yoyodyne Propulsion Systems at 806 Pierce(!) St. in Sioux City, Iowa. It’s a tattoo & piercing parlor. I thought I had some photos on the hard drive, but apparently not.


  6. I have got one idea for your weblog. It seems like at this time there are a handful of cascading stylesheet problems while opening a selection of webpages within google chrome and opera. It is operating okay in internet explorer. Possibly you can double check that.


    • Thanks! Eschew IE. Weird about chrome though because I usually use this browser and/or Mozilla. Make a living coding and designing websites. WordPress is fairly restrictive. It’s my outlet though because I can write and not have to ‘work.’
