This is Austin: Big Lebowski Scavenger Hunt, 2 Live Crew, Makers Brunch

Hi party peeps:

Busy week, sorry this is late. Yes, the wig crawl is still a possibility… but it’s gonna have to wait until it’s not so damn hot. It’s Thursday… one day til Friday… basically the weekend. Here are some things to help you slack off:

· Things happen to us every day that make you shake your head in disbelief… here are people who have decided to share:

· Speaking of appalling, we’ve all seen this, typically at places like gruv or the marq or the ranch:

· Speaking of d-bags, “do you like this funky arab?” It’s unbelievably ridiculous and hilarious.

· Mortified austin: mortified is a comic excavation of awkward adolescent artifacts – old journals, poems, love letters, lyrics, locker notes, home movies, etc. – and shared by their original authors in front of total strangers. Submit entries now!

As always, asterisks mean attending. Blog is here and let me know if there’s something I should include! I’ll be working on the format of the blog soon as I’ve recently discovered its cutting off the side of some events and that’s totally unacceptable.

Yours in work avoidance,
