A post about a walk in the park or something

Ok, it’s not about a walk in the park, but it is about something. Saturday was a pretty fun day all in all. It marked a few occasions. The first was the First Annual Liquid Web Bad Golf Open, held at El Dorado Golf Club (FALWBGO@EDGC). There were only seven brave souls (or was it 9?), but a lot of fun was had. None of us are particularly good at golf, and that’s most evident by the fact that I had the best day out of all of us. I actually shot par twice, yet still ended up shooting a 56 over nine holes. I’ve figured out the secret to my golf game. On par 4 and 5 holes, I mash the ball off the tee. Driving is the only thing I do well when I golf. If I can get a good second shot, I’ll normally finish the hole in good shape. If I duff the second shot, say hello to triple bogey. Anyway, it was a perfect day. It was very sunny, about 65 degrees, and only a slight breeze. We also saw some wildlife when we were out as well. Between the second and third holes, there was a deer out and about, but it made for the woods before I could get out my camera and take a picture. We also saw a red-tailed hawk perched in a tree from about 15-20 feet away. It was probably more docile than normal, which allowed us to get so close. After our golfing clinic was over, we went over to Champions and had a few beers and some food, and went on our way.

Later on that evening was SHELBY-CON 2006. It sounds all big and grandiose, but it was really just a party a few friends threw for Shelby because he was back in Michigan for the weekend. It was a whole lot of fun, except for the fact that I became the human swill rag that night. Midway through the night, I sat down on a patio chair outside, but nobody warned me that someone had spilled a beer all over it. So my ass was soaked with beer, then while I was standing by the fire to try to dry my ass off, someone knocked over a tiki torch on me, and spilled the flammable smelly liquid (kerosene?) on my shorts. That pretty much made standing by the fire a very bad idea, so I had to walk around with wet shorts for the rest of the night. Then I kicked over a beer someone left on the floor, and got it all over my shoe. My fragrance that night must have been positively alluring.

I took my camera with me, and I’ll have some pictures up in the gallery shortly.
