I'm Alive! & Britney has lost her mind!

I swear every time I go on vacation or am in the hospital crazy shit happens. The night I got home after my surgery, Jory notifies me that "Anna Nicole Smith died today". And now I'm sitting here on my couch, recovering and not sleeping because I can't get comfortable and it seems Britney Spears lost her mind last night and shaved her head!



Other crazy events that happened while I was in the hospital or on vacation:

At the airport waiting to fly to San Jose, CA....OJ killed Nicole and what's his name.
In a hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada...Princess Diana dies in a car crash.
Driving to Lompoc, CA...El Nino floods California (we actually got stranded in Ojay (OhHigh), CA due to freeway closures.
Vacationing in NoCal....Hurricane Katrina ravages NOLA.
In the hospital giving birth to Jack...Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin dies from a murdering stingray.
1 week later...Anna Nicole Smith's son Daniel dies mysteriously.

I'm sure there's more, but I'm bored already. Time for more Vicodin.

More on my surgery and recovery later...

I can't wait for all the Britney fans to start shaving their heads!

I feel that it is necessary to point out that although you seemingly have connections to all of these events that you were working during 9-11, so at least you aren't some terrorist.

;) I told Athena the Ojai story when we drove through Santa Barbara on the way home from this last trip and saw a sign pointing to Ojai (I though it was spelled Ohi myself untill I saw the sign and remembered). I had forgotten it was El Nino that did it to us though.

It's good to see you posting this soon after the surgery. We hope you're healing up quickly and as always, we're wishing you good luck!

easily one of the scariest moments in my life occurred in Lompoc...

Joey said...

"You're a BUTTHOLE!" LOL We can always laugh about Juli's sister yelling at Eric and I and calling us BUTTHOLES!
We should all plan a vacation together back to Ojai!

Jory said...

That trip was full of misfortune, from the rain, to the yelling (aside from you being "BUTTHOLES" I remember distinctly hearing "THEY ARE OUT THERE SMOKING WEED!" which we weren't, at that moment), on to practically passing out on the way back to the hotel room, forward to playing that fucking basket ball game in the arcade all night, furthering onward to the ongoing horrible weather coming home from anywhere luck, pushing on with a return to a house already in full party mode and no chance of sleeping and ending with a few restless hours in a crappy hotel room with a cinder-block wall inches from the big window.

Yeah, we should all schedule another trip all the way down to good old Lompoc, and this time Joey can drive the WHOLE way!

Joey said...

I don't want to go back to Lompoc, Ojai was beautiful and under different circumstances it could be a fun trip. I think I should make us all "We'll always have Ojai" T-shirts! he he

tom said...

let's just forget the ojai, lompoc trip and go to Europe instead.

it was eventful though, Jory channeling the spirit of Wilt Chamberlain on me and sinking at least 50 baskets in a row! One-handed at that! (i'm pretty sure a cocktail was in the other)...

Michelle said...

Glad that you are starting to feel better Joey! Let us know if you need anything.

Joey said...

OK Tom, Europe it is! We'll start saving our pennies.

Thanks Michelle One Meeeellion Dollaaaars will do! he he he

Oh yeah, there was the crazy drive with Jory driving longer continuously than anyone I've ridden with until Athena (lol, I don't think the smoking ever stopped once we passed Crappy Valley), then the stay in Ojai (where we began our tradition of steaming the hell out of hotel bathrooms and smoking like trains! something about steam makes the THC absorb faster and stronger) when El Nino stopped us from making it any further, then "BUTTHOLES" with accompanying finger jabs to the chest and the "They are smoking WEED" with the place crawling with cops, then packing Juli's stuff into the Galant that already had 5 people and accompanying gear, and somewhere in there we made the mistake of that burger joint (Jumbo Burger?) that made us all sick, then on to Vegas on the way home where we stayed like kings and queens in a jaquzzi suite 3rd floor from the top of the Luxor (with a large bathroom and huge stand-in shower we of course steamed up any time we were in the room). Unfortunately only half the group was 21 yet so we focused on drinking the drinks Jory got for us, carousing about casinos faded enough it was difficult to stand without the help of leaning against a fellow faded group member by the end of the evening, hitting the arcade, and partying it up in the room. I believe we stayed 2 nights/days of raging partying before making the limping drive back home to Jory/Rod's. LOL, now the part I forgot about and thus didn't tell Athena about was the part Jory reminded me of how our frazzled asses rolled into town to find out Rod, Grant, and the boys had one of their typical parties in full swing and there would be no rest to be had. And at that point it was like Fear and Loathing and we HAD to rest and thus that shitty motel room we stayed at a couple miles from home. :)

With enough warning time (3-4 months would be great) Athena and I (and the kids depending on the location etc.) could make it to anywhere reasonable that we all want to make some new memories!! ;)

ROFL, and I like the "We'll always have Ojai!" T-shirt idea Joey. :)

Joey said...

Working on the T-shirt design now ;)

tom said...

Jory, THIS is why you need to get the Jory's Stories posts started up again....

Joey said...

I totally agree Tom!
