Not To Be Trusted With Knives

The Internet’s leading authority on radicalized geese


T minus 24 hours

…’til the start of the 12 Bars of Christmas ’09.  My liver hurts already.

I was just flipping through my blog postings from the previous 12 Barses1 and realized that this is my 4th year of 12 Barring, not my 3rd as I was thinking it was.  Not sure how I could have made that mistake, given that the emails keep saying it’s the 5th time that Erika & Paul have run this event and I know that I only missed the first year of it2.  Tomorrow’s forecast calls for snow, as seems to always happen for 12 Bars, but on the plus side I’m going to get some kickass Foursquare points, let me tell you.

Anyhoo, wish me luck on my latest attempt to consume far more alcohol than is reasonable even for a person of normal size, let alone for a shrimp like me – and keep your fingers crossed that the coming snowstorm doesn’t result in me having to walk home like I did last year.

  1. Barses is the plural of Bars, right? []
  2. perhaps this annual drinking at 12 bars in 6 hours isn’t good for the old brainarino? []

    Avoid the jagerbombs. Go for lame drinks. If you exclusively order wine spritzers, you might just make it out alive.

    Hmmm…. it appears that my sneakily scheduling this posting to publish at 3 p.m. – 24 hours before the start of 12 Bars – was foiled by the a.m./p.m. problem.

    So WHAT is foursquare, anyway? It sounds retarded, as does Twitter, which means I'm sure it will be the next big thing.
