HELLO FROM REHAB!!!!   Not sure if anything's been shared but Sunday dinner at my parents' a couple weeks ago was in fact an elaborate ruse to stage an intervention.  Actually it wasn't very

Thanks for all the thropwas everybody.  I'm doing alright, hanging out with family and friends, tipping back cold ones, grilling and enjoying 80 degree weather.  Despite being a little sad, I'm reliev

Stuck at a wedding reception where I know absolutely no one, other than the couple who brought me here. If I don't get out of here in the next half hour, I may be joining Bill.

Huh.  I’ve never been to a wedding where couples get a +1.   You think you’ll take them back to your place?

Wasn't a wedding; they got married a week ago at some destination or another. This was just a reception chance for the bride to wear her dress again.

I buried my brother today.  It's been a couple months since he died. The funeral home in the town he died mailed me a package with his ashes and I didn't open them for a long time. 

I was the only one who spoke at his funeral. I buried his ashes in a small plot because I didn't have a good place to spread them.  The only people in attendance were my mother, father and uncle and their significant others.  I took his ashes on a last ride by our childhood home, his childhood best friend's house, and our high school, back before everything went wrong in his life.  My mom is mentally ill and couldn't handle speaking, my father hadn't been on good terms with my brother in two decades, and my uncle was there more to support me than to say goodbye to a nephew he didn't know that well. My dad and uncle are in their seventies and still see each other a few weeks out of the year.  My brother died at 45, as a victim of mental illness, cancer and poor circumstances. He would have been 46 Wednesday.  

I knew exactly what I was going to say. I'd planned to tell the story of his life with the good and bad all laid out.  It's one of the few things about funerals I knew my brother believed in.  We didn't dress up, my brother was homeless for a while and didn't own a suit, he despised formal events.  I would talk about us as boys, when he was a literal genius and a voracious reader who rebuffed my pleas to go play a game so he could read a book, to later when he found dungeons and dragons which was a good compromise,  a game about a book whose most powerful characters were the intelligent wizards and the dungeon master, roles that suited my brother perfectly.  To my parents' divorce, and how he stayed with my mom while i went with my dad and I'm still not sure if any of us did the right thing.   To his college days when he met drug using friends and his schizophrenia went terribly wrong. To his cross country trip to California, the last place he was ever happy.  To him becoming homeless and then ill and dying of cancer.  There was a good and complex person and he had nobody there but me to tell that story and only his immediate family to listen.  

I started crying about two words in to the eulogy and never fully recovered.   Everyone was patient and my uncle's girlfriend walked over to rub my back.  When i was done i asked if anyone else wanted to speak, they didn't, and I put a board over the small grave. My dad suggested we get a nice lunch afterwards and chose Applebees, where he and my uncle fought over who would pay the bill. I took my mom home, bought two bottles of cheap white wine, and drove an hour and a half home to drink them. 

I think I'm the only one drinking to him tonight which is a shame. 

If you're out there drinking tonight and wouldn't mind saying good bye Bill for me I'd appreciate it. 

Hey Fred. 

Sorry I missed this.  But I will tonight.  Your brother’s story is not that far off from some that hit really close to home.  I wish you well in moving forward.

Oh.  So, the week-later reception was a swinger party.  That makes sense. “Honeymoon’s over” as they say.

What age do the balls dangle at? Right now mine are holding on tight. Nice job balls. 

Coincidentally, there’s a discussion of long balls in the World Cup thread right now!

There's a damned fly in my house that I've spent way more time than I'd like to admit trying to get rid of. I've used all of my nifty flyswatter moves - including the dreaded backhand double-swat - all to no avail. If y'all see a smoke plume on the horizon, it's probably because of that fly.

Open the oven and put a piece of fruit in food in there. Once he flies in there close the door and bake his ###

My only experience with Xanax had my wife finding me asleep in a planter when she came to pick me up after an MRI.

So, one of the peanut people?  Well, good for you....I think.

How are your balls?

Got up in the middle of the night to take dump (Had some stomach issues) Sat down and SPLASH, they went for a dip and I damn near  fell off the toilet. The seat was up, and it was dark.

You don't realize how much turbleunce a toilet seat that's up causes until you sit down not realizing it.

I recently heard this note-by-note replica of Toto's "Africa" that Weezer inexplicably released.  What was the purpose of that?

It was stunningly not arranged at all. I sort of laughed. We already had a note-for-note version of Africa -- was it Rivers's voice or something that was going to carry it over the top? 

Ah, well. Rubbish.

Wouldn’t you like to know 

It depends.  If they’re just a bit small, I don’t really care.  If they’re the size of bbs or something, I would probably find that interesting enough that I would ask questions.

Eye-talians have a lot of phrases around balls. Cracks me up when my MIL says that my balls are twisted (I'm upset) or are hot (I have the A/C turned on too cold).

I'm in my 30's and have had some slight ball sag. Not much, but it's there. Either my body is aging faster than my actual years or some of don't remember how high and tight yours were in your teens and early 20's.

I listened to the whole damn thing certain that there was going to be some Big Difference coming just around the corner.  Rubbish, indeed.

Yeah, I don't expect much from Weezer these days. They've either mailed it in or been confused since after Maladroit, which I actually love.

Evidently they go through bassists at a steady rate.

Ouch. Didn't Mikey Welsh die? Yeah, I looked it up. He did. He predicted his own death on Twitter? 

Jeebus. That's sad. 

On another note, my friend always says that Matt Sharp's departure spelled the end of really creative Weezer. I wonder.

Fred- thank you for sharing everything about that day. Condolences to you and your famiky. We had floppinhas 7th bday party here at the apt. Amidst the 11 7yo girls and random. Siblings and parents, I got drinks in Bills honor. All my best.

 

I alos heard both of those Weezer covers (commented in the new music thread) and had the exact same progression of thought as Krista. Total and complete pointlessness.

 

Gotta go...it's time for Dance Charades to wrap this party up. Drunk dad is going to throw one down for the ages.

Oh ####... Almost forgot... My balls started to dangle sometime after 45/6. If I had a stop motion camera while I slept, I swear you could see them creeping by the minute

I'm no expert, but it seems like a female wearing her sleeping garments is in a bar ordering a ####ty, alcoholless beverage.

Shouldn't you be preparing an 10-month summary or something?
