The Twilight Saga: Frozen Goods

Earlier this year, Shey started reading the Twilight series. I knew she was a little nuts about it when she finished the series and immediately started over with the first book. When the first movie came out she bought it on DVD and forced me to watch it. Not impressed.

Friday night while catching up with everyone at The Grill (for the last time) the Twilight series came up again. Come to find out most of the women of Backtoms are obsessed with this series. The volume of the conversation elevated and the women started looking slightly hot and bothered discussing the books. Now I see how we must have looked when discussing Platinum Plus back in the day.

!!!Exaggeration alert!!!
I don't remember the exact conversation, but Daniel chimed in on Kim's obsession with the books. He said something along the lines that prior to a "make out" session he offered to go stick his johnson in the freezer for her.

No spin zone
I think he actually said something more like he offered to stand in front of the freezer for her, but with our group I think it's understandable how that quickly degraded.

Either way...due to the extreme laughter I didn't hear if Kim took him up on the offer or not. But I did see this a few months ago. Keep it in mind if you are looking for a holiday gift for your significant other.

Starkville Hotels: The Regal Inn

I'm proud to say that I've never had the pleasure of staying at this hotel, but here is what I was told about this establishment by friends that stayed there this weekend.
  • Controls on the a/c were missing. One of the guys had to go to another room to see what the labels were supposed to be to make the appropriate adjustments to his unit.
  • Stains on the bed/chair that looked to potentially be blood or some other bodily fluid.
  • Empty condom wrapper in the drawer next to the Holy Bible.

I was drinking so I don't remember the rest of the stuff, but maybe Deebo can enlighten us with more info about this one since I think he might have paid an hourly rate to stay Saturday night.

Starkville Hotels: Americas Best Value Inn

I've got to say it seemed slightly better than last year, but maybe I just drank more this time. Our room was lacking an alarm clock and a remote control. The phone had the button for a wake-up call, but that didn't work and the hotel did not provide the service. The towels are standard bath towel size and feature ~40 grit size with the absorbency of a single-ply paper towel. Made drying off quite pleasurable.

Before you even have a chance to enjoy the towel be sure to check out the shower which begins with a flush out feature. When you turn on the water it looks like coffee grounds are coming out.

As with any hotel room I try to avoid direct contact with the comforter if possible. Friday night I woke up shaking because I was so cold. I adjusted the a/c unit and then tried to warm up on my wife. After she yelled at me I found myself with no choice but to wrap up in the comforter.

Our door handle was also a treat. To close the door from outside the room you actually had to insert the key card to allow you to turn the handle up before the door would pull shut.

Starkville Hotels

Heard some interesting stories this weekend about hotel rooms people were staying in. Unfortunately, Starkville only seems to have a few decent hotels and those are close to impossible to get on football weekends. The rest of us get to see some entertaining stuff.

Stefanie and I had the pleasure of staying at Univ. Inn right outside of campus. We checked in and made our way to the back of the hotel to our room. This was my first time staying there, but had set my expectations low based on what James told me about Luke's room last year. I quickly found out that the description was not exaggerated. The light switch didn't exist, some of the lights didn't work, the deadbolt didn't seem to work, and the door didn't lock in the shutmost position (i.e., you could push on it and it would open up some). The toilet paper was low grade, and the roll I had the pleasure of dealing with was adhering to itself in such a way that you couldn't get it to unroll without the opened biscuit can effect. Between the insecure door and the group of dudes chilling in the parking lot I called the front desk (from my cell phone), and asked if they could give me another room (like one in the main building as I was told I had when I made my reservation). To their credit, they did let me move to another room. It was in the 500 building facing the inside parking lot. Here are some pictures from my phone that don't really do the place justice (blogger isn't letting me add more than what's below right now, but it's enough).

Not sure what all this extra stuff on the beds was. The sheets/comforter look to be a little old. The only thing separating you from the mattress was a thin fitted sheet. We cannibalized the sheets from both beds to try to build up a buffer to sleep on. The sheets had various stains on them so I'm not sure we were really protecting ourselves.

I didn't bother trying to use the phone.

I didn't test the tv to see if it was operational.

This was kind of interesting. Guess it was some kind of fancy-pants shower back in the day.

Since folks were comparing the color of the water in their rooms we decided to play it safe and brought in bottled water for tooth brushing. We left our luggage in the car to keep it clean, and ended up just sleeping in the clothes we wore to the game. There were two bath towels in the room, but no other towels. Stefanie didn't trust the shower or the towels that did exist. We hopped our dirty selves in the car bright and early and got the hell out of there. The people I talked to at the desk were friendly, but I hope I don't find myself having to stay there again.

My wife adds that the first room smelled like pee, and the second room did to a lesser extent. I don't remember that, but I could have been delirious from all the driving I did this weekend.

Beauty Tip of the Week

Ever finish shaving and think to yourself, "This didn't take nearly enough time"? Yes? It's your lucky day. Allow me to present the Anthony Perfect Shave kit. You get things kicked off by washing your face with the Glycolic Facial Cleanser. Next you drape your face with a warm towel for a bit. When that's done you apply the Pre Shave Oil followed by the Shave Cream. A little work with a sharp razor (instructions on how to shave included), and it's time for the After Shave Balm. If that's not enough steps you could use some Tend Skin before the balm. It'll be noon before you make it out of the house.

Keepin' it Real

Just got finished browsing The Sixpack and saw where not only did the squids get a year of probation for thier bid day inident from the school, but now they have had their charter revoked by the national chapter. The thing that made me laugh was everyone discussing how it happend. Some dude claimed that it all started becasue a girl cried rape and the response was, "no dude, you are thinking of Lambda Chi."

I thought Maxey wasn't allowed at the house anymore... "he tried to kiss her and she slapped him with a felony"

Beauty Tip of the Week

Haven't hit y'all with a tip lately. There's a place called Pish Posh Patchouli's in Rosemary Beach, FL that sells Sweet Tart soap (it smells like SweeTarts candy). Warning, this stuff might be to the obese as Axe is to women.
