New Term!!!

I heard a new term recently. If you can figure it out what it means, I might buy you a beer. Actually I won't, but I'll be very impressed.

OFE (pronounced "of-ie")

Good luck


Social Calendar

Due to the continued tight hold on my unemployed funds, I will only be participating in a few parties and such for the Halloween weekend. Here are which parties I am (probably) going to attend (energy and time willing of course):

Thursday night - Thursday Night Tactical Drinking Team
I'm not sure if we are meeting for drinks this week or not. It's pretty up in the air. Scottie Too Hottie is doing a work thing and he usually coordinates these events. I have an early meeting Friday morning. And no one has responded to the email yet. So I'm sure we are putting a cancellation on this week.

Friday night - Ptolemy Halloween Party with the U Club
I'm going. Hopefully it'll be fun. I'm skeptical though. Plus I have to get up early the next day for...

Saturday - Ole Miss v. Auburn
Yea, we are going to lose. By a lot. At least in the game. But dammit, we are going to win the party!!! We are having our Oktoberfest theme at the tent this weekend. Unfortunately it's an 11:30 kickoff. So we'll have more time for the party after the game. Which means I'm not sure when we're driving back and I'm not sure if I'll have the energy/sobriety to go out for Saturday night. But damn if I won't try!

Saturday night - Chicken Tractor Party
I'm really going to try to make it. This is supposed to be one of the best Halloween parties out there. Mendi (aka Mini-her) has been going the last few years. Hell, she's such a regular there that she's made the quote list about the party (obviously a joke, but probably true):
Mendi Morrison:
The party is great. Everyone comes out to have a good time, raise money, and go all out on their costumes. I've got to go make out with somebody, stat.

What else needs to be said? Go to the party and you'll be able to make out with Mendi. What able-bodied man can turn down that kinda offer?

Tuesday evening - October 31 (that's Halloween, you damn fool!)
No telling what I'll do. Supposedly Newby's has some big ass party. But every bar will have a party. I guess it's just up in the air right now.

Anything else fun I'm missing? Let me know in the comments.

Have a good one and don't get none on ya


Cougar Hunting with Barney

Did anyone catch "How I Met Your Mother" tonight on CBS? Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) went cougar hunting. He even outlined the steps for identifying a cougar. Don't know what I'm talking about? New to this blog? Well, I've been in cougar country before and have survived and described it in length. Here are a few links to older stories with cougars.

Night of the Cougar!!!
Cougar Defined!!!
Cougar at the Casino!!!

Anywho, the cougar is played by Jane Seymour. She is another character's law professor (which leads to many of the grading jokes throughout the episode). For those of you who are well-read in Cougars on this blog, I give you my favorite Barney quotes from the episode. Enjoy!

Barney quote 1: "A cougar: an older woman usually in her 40s or 50s, single and on the prowel for a younger man."


Barney quote 3: "Oh yeah. It's a cougar alright. Fine specimen. See, you can identify a cougar by a few key characteristics.
Start with the hair. The cougar keeps up with the current hairstyles as a form of camoflauge. the prey may not realize that he has engaged a cougar until he is already being dragged, helpless, back to her lair.
Now the blouse. The cougar displays maximum cleavage possible to captivate her prey. While you're watching them bounce, she's about to pounce.
I see the claws! Long and sharp to ward off rival females...or open alimony checks.
Yeah, this one's a beaut!"

Barney and Cougar post-coital conversation:
Barney "Omygod! Incredible!"
Cougar "Hmm. C minus."
Barney "C minus? What are you talking about? I pulled an all-nighter!"
Cougar "You didn't budget your time well. You glossed over some of the most important points. And your oral presentation was sloppy and inconclusive."

Barney quote 4: "Look! I miscalculated. I thought she'd be old and fragile like most cougars. But kitty's got claws."

Changes in Lattitudes...

Well actually, it's more of a change in longitude. But I digress...

There are distinct differences between Germantown and Memphis that I'm beginning to notice. I think I'm going to try and supply pics of these differences over time, but for now, just take my word.

One example I'll give you now: a huge difference between Memphis and Germantown is what kind of cars come with "rims." I know what you're thinking: "Philip, cars don't come with rims. Rims are put on by the owners after they buy the car. They are aftermarket accessories." You are right. But when you see a car driving down the street with rims, as far as you know, the car came with those rims. But for the sake of this post we'll just discuss the various "cars with rims" around the area.

The quality of cars with rims vary from area of town to another. When I lived in Midtown and East Memphis, I saw tons of cars with rims (especially at Buffalo Wild Wings), but they were all crappy cars with expensive looking rims (like a '95 Chrysler towncar with rusted paint and a two color hood or an old '97 Chevy Blazer). It had spinners and tinted windows but was one rain storm away from losing the muffler. Now that I live in Germantown (temporarily), I notice that cars with rims are actually nice cars (like a Mercedes Benz SL500 with tinted windows and spinners or a Lincoln towncar with tinted windows).

One thing I have noticed is that regardless of what area of town, if you're going to put rims and/or spinners on a ride (is there a difference?), they have to be nice no matter how much of a piece o' shite your car is. So the lesson is that...


Over the next week or so, I'll try and get pics of the various types of cars with rims around town. That is, if I remember to bring my damn camera with me.

Have a good one and don't get none on ya
