Hey kids! It’s time for everyone’s favorite installment here on Slydesblog….. namely where I pull out a random picture from a box of old photos and scan it in for your perusal and enjoyment.
The first picture that I pulled is, by coincidence, also the one that I had scanned in and cropped a few years ago when I needed a picture for my avatar here on Blogger. You’ve no doubt all drooled over this picture countless times, so it’s probably high time that you finally got to see the entire picture. This way you can probably have much more fulfilling sexual fantasies about me while you stare at it.
This picture was taken by my girlfriend at the time during my one and only attempt at camping, somewhere in Upstate New York. I have to say that, as much as I was dreading the idea of communing with nature for 3 days and not being able to play Warcraft, in the end I have to admit that I kinda ENJOYED the whole camping experience.
Mind you, I’ve never attempted it again, so I must not have loved it TOO fucking much, but I DO remember being outdoors in the pitch dark of night, and listening to nature, mostly being drunk off my ass, and thinking that everything in my life was just dandy.
I ALSO remember cutting a hole in a watermelon and pouring a bottle of vodka into it. I remember carrying the bloated watermelon with me everywhere I went, like it was a newborn. I guess it kinda WAS, wasn’t it? I also remember tripping over a root and me and my alcohol-soaked newborn tumbling ass over teakettle into a ravine, but other than THAT, I remember having a good time on this trip.
Interesting side-note: A few days after we came back from this trip, I beat the bejeesus out of the dude sitting down that looks like Super-Mario, after he made a very drunken and very pathetic play for my girl one night. What can I say? I’m kinda territorial that way. And that chick next to him was his girlfriend at the time. That’s class.
Anyway, as you might surmise, I have long since fallen out of touch with this entire crew. They have become just another set of faces from my past who I might not even recognize if they walked past me on the street today, even though, during that particular magical summer, these were the most important people in the world to me.
But I guess that’s the purpose of this particular little experiment of mine…. To dust off the cobwebs of some long-forgotten corners of my life, and to stir up the past for your enjoyment…….
…….And to get you all hot and bothered.
