The Daily EO: March 5th, 2016

Quiet please.

I’ve been up since 3:30 am because I went to bed at 10 with a little help from Happy Hours.

I was invited out for an Unemployed Person Pub Crawl last night that started at 3 pm and covered 3 bars and eventually my house.

There was a spreadsheet schedule and everything.  No, I didn’t make it.  Yes, I know – strange- I didn’t make it.

I make it sound like there was a huge group of us – but there were only 2.  Until the employed people showed up – they had to wait til they finished work.  Whatevs.

I have some advice.

  • Don’t text and drink.  This is not unique nor uncommon advice, but I just want to say that to bring the message really home.  I did send a very nice picture of my eyebrow to Alison.  It was looking particularly well groomed, I’m sure she appreciated it, looked in the mirror and wondered how she could get a brow like mine.
  • Don’t drink with sales executives.  They can beat us all – its their profession.
  • Don’t answer someone’s phone when it rings.  It causes chaos, and you can’t hear them anyways in a bar.
  • Have some movies ready to go.  By 8:00 am I have already polished off Fast and the Furious 6 (which I also figured out how X character died in Tokyo Drift and still managed to appear in 4, 5, and 6) and Safe.  I love Jason Stratham.  That man can do no wrong – and he is a killer.  But an honest one.
  • Do not discuss potential employment with anyone during bar crawls.  Just.  Don’t.
