We had already been hanging out all afternoon and realized that no
had yet been taken, so it was high time for the snapshots to commence!
(from the left - Tom, RoG, Mike, Stamper)
One thing I promised I would do when we met was to photograph Tom
with some kind of expression other than that same smile of his that
probably seen in practically every photo he's ever appeared in. And
know it... the almighty Pickle Hat™
and Wacky Space Goggles™ did the trick.
Stamper needed some assistance in putting on the PickleMan gear...
...and I was more than happy to oblige.
Looks like somebody's camera shy! Bwahahaha!
Then again, some other people aren't camera shy at all.
(I think the Pickle Hat went through puberty that night)
Here's Tom and April hanging out at the Irish pub we went to later
(note: Apparently the Irish love
infomercials, because that's
all that played on their TV screens the entire evening.)
Marie and I being extremely entertained by the infomercials and dance
DAMNIT TOM! I'LL GET YOU TO MAKE A DIFFERENT
FACIAL EXPRESSION IF I HAVE TO CHOKE IT OUT OF YA!
Mike givin' propz to tha East Side. Awww yeah.
April tried to warn me that I'm just not gangsta enough, but it was
already too late.
Marie and Stamper livin' la vida loca.
Stare deeeply into our eyes... while our friends make off with your
Mike really enjoyed himself too much when "Baby Got Back" came
on the radio.
This is what every old man who has drank whiskey for the last 40 years
in a bar looks like.
Strange thing is, I only drink water and I still can't help myself
from making that face.
I knew there was a reason why Tom wanted me to visit...
Jealous much, April? Too bad, he's mine now.
Oh but my nipple-tweaking could only keep him entertained for but so
You see, I happen to have a copy of Metal Slug on my cell phone, which
is pretty much
Tom's all-time favorite game. Once he saw that game, we literally lost
him for 15 minutes.
But that's no problem, we can entertain ourselves just fine, am I
Or can we? Hmmm...
Once my cell phone battery was dead from all his gaming, it was time
punish Tom by forcing him to drink cranberry ale! Actually, it was a
bottle that Stamper used as an ashtray, but don't tell Tom that, ok
That's right, drink up those ashes. Muahahaha...
I don't know how, but apparently an infant stole
my camera and took a photo of me that night.
I also showed off my nipple tweaking skills to Stamper.
I swear he was mesmerized by it...
A little too mesmerized!
And then it was time for all of us to part ways and drive back home...
It's so haaaaard... to say goodbyeeeeee... to yesterdaaaaaayyy :(
Don't worry guys, we'll always have the memories! Awwwwww!
So there you have it, it was a hell of a fun day that we had together
and once we all agree to have the restraining orders lifted, I'm sure
we'll be doing it again real soon. Hope you enjoyed the pics!
