Adventure Trip

Tomorrow is the big, weird, day. I'm going to Wisconsin with some folks I don't know to drink some beers! The whole thing started as part of this project for school to create a one-page proposal for a fake company with a group picked by the teacher. I don't know the folks very well, but we decided to to create a brewery, that gives tours no-less. I manage the attached restaurant.

So in the interest of gathering more information (getting shwasted) we decided to tour a brewery. As in, "Ha ha, we should actually go to a brewery, ha ha." But then I got an email saying "We're going to Wisconsin to tour a couple breweries, ones 6 bucks and unlimited beers, the other is free and only three beers, we'll pick you up at 10:30."

I turned to my comp teacher who I think is a really smart guy and a great writer, "Well I'm not doing that." and he was astounded that I wasn't planning on going. He told me "You're a writer, you have to go on this trip." I countered explaining I don't know any of these people and it's a three hour drive with them, to which he responded, "That's why you have to go!"

Writin' Dirty Jokes

Most of today was spent writing dirty jokes for my friend Jeff's stand up routine, soon to be a major motion picture. He's the star of a documentary following the start of a career in the laugh business, and I'm the insurance that he doesn't fall on his ass. Topics included handjobs and condom shopping, as well as other high-brow fare.

We try to write what we know.
