Hangovers are bad. Four day hangovers are horrible. When you drink and drink and drink, you tend to fall down, run into things, get run over by people, and just generally abuse your body. I feel like I exercised. It has been so long since I had that sensation, I don't know if it is exactly that, but I do know I am incredibly sore, and the heaviest thing I lifted was a liter bottle of vodka. One of the great things about roadies is that if you come up with an idea, they will make it happen. Everyone got in an argument about which vodka was best and if you could tell the difference between plastic bottles at $5 and good stuff at $100 a bottle. A roadie was dispatched, and after the show that night, 45 different bottles of vodka were sampled. At first there was some pretense at spitting it out in between tastes, but that grew old and so the 45 bottle taste test just evolved into pass each bottle around the circle until it was gone. The taste test went to crap, but there is something impressive about 45 empty bottles being lined up in one big bowling alley configuration.
Fruit bowling is the name they gave to this type of bowling. The first round everyone used a lime to attempt to knock down bottles and to break them. This progressed through the apple and orange family all the way to watermelons with points being accumulated on the way. This is not be confused with intern bowling in which they take guys working for free, put a helmet on them and then tie them to a skateboard and use them as a human bowling ball.
Anyway, another item from the road. This solo male Top 40/hip hop/ #1 songs/ singer was filming as video last year and came up with a unique casting format. The video was about 3 minutes long and the singer broke it up into 12, 15 second segments. Each aspiring actress was asked how many segments she wanted to be in. All of them invariably said 12. They were told it would not be a problem as long as they had sex with 12 guys. Each segment meant one guy to f**k. All of them except for one balked at doing all 12 guys. She is in the entire video. Although there were no other takers for all 12, when you see the video and use a stopwatch, you can see how many guys they did do. Every woman in the video did at least one guy with most doing two or three. Our singer was #12 for the woman who made it that far. She was the only one he was with.
