Tim, The Drinking Lamp Is Lit

with 2 comments

I just wanted to interrupt the long stream of nothingness I’ve got been cultivating here to give a great big shoutout to my boy Timmy B., one of my most very bestest friends and my gleeful co-conspirator in much of my online empire.

I first met Tim back in ’93 when he was the newly-anointed manager of Turtle’s Music in Pensacola. I was the first guy he hired after he got the job, and as far as I know I was his longest-tenured employee, working at the store on and off for almost seven years as I slowly clawed my way through college. It didn’t take long for our shared interests in football, comic books, music and liquor to slam us together as friends, and friends we’ve been ever since (except for a brief period in ’98 when I pissed him off about something or other and was temporarily dead to him… luckily for me, that didn’t last).

Here’s to you, Timmy B — I hope you’ve had a grand thirty-seventh, fucker. I’m sorry I’ve missed the last several of your birthdays, but I’m gonna say it right now, here in public: I’ll be damned if I’m missing your fortieth. So you’d better come up with something big for it.

  1. “…(except for a brief period in ‘98 when I pissed him off about something or other and was temporarily dead to him…”

    I don’t remember either, but that was probably due to you revealing my real age in a public place.

    “…I’ll be damned if I’m missing your fortieth. So you’d better come up with something big for it.”

    Sandy won’t let me get away with anything less than outtakes from Caligula, or at least Can’t Hardly Wait. It may be a weekend thing in some neutral location, more central to the literally pairs of members in the Tim Empire.

    I turn 40 on Friday, April 10, 2009. So a long weekend at some hotspot is doable. I hope I still am…
