I thought the Masons might enjoy a topic where Brett's friends describe the fun times they have with Brett! For example, Danielle, Brett and I went out to a French restaurant last night with other friends Michel and Ted. We had a bottle of red wine (Brett had ginger ale) and some good conversation about the American health care system, immigration, and the iphone. Brett looked especially presentable in a white button-down shirt and khakis. Danielle was also looking lovely. My friends sure clean up good!

This is very sweet of you, Emmay! I wonder how many of Brett's local friends actually have enough ambition to contribute their stories?

I went to lunch at Applebee's with Brett today, where we had salad and onion peels and talked about how I wasn't his first choice for a lunch partner. Is this the kind of story we're supposed to contribute?

Nice avatar. My son can be a boor at times. I would have told you, that you were my first and only choice as a lunch partner.

I know you did what you could to raise him right. Sometimes these things happen, you know? One minute he's starring in an educational film about the dangers of electricity, the next minute he's teaching the neighbor kids how to joust with bikes and baseball bats. It's sad, really.

When I'm not educating people about electrical safety, I think can educate bachelors on "how to choose lunch partners," using the following priority list (highest priority on top):

  • single women with no boyfriends
  • single women who don't like their boyfriends
  • women who are attached but not married
  • married women
  • men, any kind

Holy crap, I'm far down on that list! And here I pick lunch partners based on how much I enjoy my time with that person. If you were choosing dinner dates I'd agree with you. Lunch partners, though?

I'm glad Kevin doesn't use your priority list. Smile

I choose my companions based on how much I enjoy their company. And sometimes how near they live.

Brett accompanied me to the Blood Center today, where I made a donation of A+ human blood. He waited patiently in the lobby, and then brought me apple juice and peanut butter crackers while I recovered. He tried to sit near me and chat while the blood was draining out of my arm, but they kicked him out of the donation area for using bad language. It was kind of embarassing. Embarassed

I must now refer you to the scene in When Harry Met Sally describing a typical bachelor approach:

"The whole life-of-a-single-guy thing. You meet someone, you have the
safe lunch, you decide you like each other enough to move on to dinner. You
go dancing, you do the white-man's over-bite, go back to her place..."

We're birds of a feather, you and me! We each have an A+ person living right next door.

I can so tell that this is untrue. Brett only uses replacement bad language. He did, however, get in trouble one Christmas Eve when we were hanging out at the mall shopping and the rent-a-cop scolded him after he ran up the down escalator. He said - and I'm NOT making this up - "No dancing. No prancing." That is my very favorite Brett/mall story.

Indeed it was your mall!

I wonder why your posts are all in triplicate?

I have no idea which thread in which topic Brett talked about going to Australia. Here is the perfect link though.

You could always search the forums, either with the SEARCH link shown in the header of every page, or with a standard search engine like Ask.com. As Amelie says to her restaurant friend Georgette, "faites un effort."
http://subscene.com/amelie-fabuleux-destin-damlie-poulain-le/subtitles-13139.aspx

But anyway, since this is the "Brett's Lexington Life" topic, I wanted to report to everyone that I am back in Lexington now.

Didn't ever get from your posts that you weren't home... your blog used to be very clear about that.

Anyway, now that you are, would you please delete my excess (duplicate) posts? I got rid of as many as I could but there are still some out there.

Thanks.

Every year so far in this century, I feel a bit of internal pressure to do something lifechanging on the one day like today which has tripled numbers in the date.

today is 07/07/07
and nothing major will happen to me today...

  • I will not lose my virginity today
  • I will not graduate from film school
  • I will not propose
  • I will not get married
  • I will not have a baby
  • I will not start a business
  • I will not win a huge amount from horseracing or the lottery
  • I will not go bankrupt
  • I will not lose one of my limbs or my senses
  • I will not burn my house down
  • I will not die
  • I will not be raptured
  • I will not be "born again"

If I'd travelled to Florida this weekend, I could have gone to Universal Studios Florida (with Cheryl and Rachel) for my first time ever, but here I am in Kentucky, kinda bored and alone.

If I go spend a few hours at the bowling alley, perhaps I can beat my personal high score, which is 211. That'd be cool.

If I'm extremely lucky, I'll meet my future wife today. Where should I go to look for her? I spent the whole morning at the Farmer's Market in downtown Lexington, and she wasn't there. Tonight I've been invited to attend Southland Church with Danielle; my future wife probably attends Southland.

I previously posted blog entries on similar dates to today's:
06/06/06
05/05/05
03/03/03

"the most popular wedding day ever"

Go there (it'll take you to the whole month of June, as the 05/05/05 post took you to the whole month of May); then read the 06/27 update, particularly what happened to you on 06/23. Not that the dates have any significance... but you'll notice what caused me to reply.

two amusing anecdotes from the world of Brett

7/8: I have always wanted to get my Quest-event photos posted on the Quest church website, but today I learned that they reject all visitor submissions because they have a 7-person photo team who prays about each event they will photograph, and because of that, those church members are "commissioned by God" to take photos for Quest. I laughed really hard at the guy who told me that, but he was serious.

7/9: walked around Fayette Mall for a bit, during which time I witnessed a full evacuation (fire drill?) of only one half of the mall. the portion of Fayette Mall on the north side of Sears = stores closed, corridors emptied of customers, alarms blaring, lights flashing!! the portion of Fayette Mall on the south side of Sears = ho-hum, business as usual. very weird.


if you're wondering, this is exactly how I record events in my offline journals; you have just peeked behind the curtain
