Here’s to you, Louis

November 14, 2004

This day in history, thanks to

1732 – 1st US professional librarian, Louis Timothee, hired in Philadelphia

1851 – “Moby Dick,” by Herman Melville, published

1991 – Michael Jackson’s “Black or White” video premieres on FOX TV

Those are three very good reasons to drink. Ok, Two very good reasons. Either way… you’d be a fool not to drink. More cheers, more beers. That’s it, that’s all.

Actually, with or without Louis I’d be having a beer. I’d be having a beer because every time I close my eyes I see yoke on a white platter and I smell syrup and grits and cinnamon-apple-garbage. Whatever. I don’t work for 3 days, and for that, I am happy. Funny, cause a few months ago I wouldn’t have given a shit what day it was. I would have hated it all the same.

  1. Something about shitty days makes days that aren’t shitty just that much better… Especially when work is involved…

    The holidays are here! It is Sunday November 21st and the Rite Aid Christmas booze specials have just been announced. I spent the better part of 15 minutes perusing the colorful 4 page sale ad. Then my friend took it back from me. It was his.
