If I Drown, You Can Have My Walkman

Tomorrow I leave for a weekend canoeing/camping adventure.

Let's take inventory, shall we? Ten novice canoers (I know what a canoe IS, that counts for something, right?), a river, five tents, eight cases of beer, no electricity, one port-a-potty, and fire. Nothing could go wrong, right?

Does nyone on this trip know how to actually canoe? LOL.

pdgonz said...

Canoeing? That's where those dozen people go down white water rapids right????????????

Nothing can go wrong, I'll lead you all!

Jenny said...

Sound like the annual trips I used to take with friends - the Raft and Draft.

You'll have a blast! Don't forget sunscreen.

Niffy said...

Life Jacket missy, remember your life jacket.

nic3oz said...

i am doing the exact same thing this weekend...scary...

Me said...

Have fun! We tip every time we go. Then we end up with those nasty little crayfish crawdad things. Ewww. Whatever they are.

Take those dorky water shoe things. Ha

Walking Wounded said...

Yeah, you're pretty safe unless you tip or the canoe cracks. But that's during the day. At night you're pretty safe as long as no one brings 'shrooms! ;)

Peace

You forgot the beer bong, or if you are drinking cans, a sharp metal object to puncture them with in order to facilitate the process those young-uns call 'shotgunning'. Gosh.

That is a pure equation for canoeing JOY!!! You're going to have a blast. Make sure you wrap anything important in plastic...and if you're canoeing near Bears, put the food up a tree...I MEAN IT

Louie said...

I think you will need more beer...

Ruben said...

This sounds like trouble! I think you will be ok though.

Usually in big groups when something goes wrong the men band together and start chanting, "Save the hot chick! Save the hot chick!"

No worries for you but the ugly girls may have a watery grave. Be careful!

BKing said...

I agree with Louie. Only 8 cases of beer for 10 people? Not nearly enough. And when out camping, the world is your port-a-john.

Justice said...

Don't forget the paddles. And why are you whimping out with beer...why not something a little stronger?

Have fun.

sage said...

Enjoy yourself, I'm heading out tomorrow for some canoeing too, but with less beer than your party!

DIAMONDKT said...

Sounds like fun to me! I love camping. Good to see you enjoy it too. Enjoy yourself!

Can I feel your boobs, please?
Thank you.

Thank you and please.
Don't be mad, just yes or no.
Thank you and please, again.

Isn't this how every teen slasher movie starts?

Danielle said...

Have a great trip!!! Wanted to tell yah that I get my belly pierced about 7 years ago and it hurt so bad I pissed myself, literlly, I couldnt walk for 20 minutes afterwards, it was bad,...

LocuTus of Borg said...

What could go wrong ... LOL

Good luck and try to come back in one piece ;)

Storm said...

Sounds like you have all the makings for a fine weekend. Have fun!

Neonalune said...

You could run out of beer, then you'd have a major situation on your hands.

Bridget Unnel said...

Your walkman? Hello -- it's the iPod or nuthin', sweetheart. ;)

JeN said...

Im sorry to hear that your are going canoeing!!! I did that once and my friend somehow sunk the fucker. Good thing the water wasnt to deep. Then after we got it back up and moving I lost my paddle downstream and had to go chasing that on the slipperest rocks ever!!
I hope your time was better than mine.

Avery said...

I'm a fellow midwestern girl, well not originally but currently.

You seem cool, love your sense of humor so I'm adding you to my links.

Good luck on the canoe trip. I'd rather not hear about a bunch of druken fools drowning this weekend so keep it safe. ;)

:phil: said...

AMG, Have fun. I hope you don't get stuck up shit's creek, without a paddle

Jerk Of All Trades 2.0 said...

Novice Canoers next on NBC!

This is gonna be good.

Habibi said...

I don't want the Walkman if you die, I want the cool digicam. Thanks in advance.

Your new naval piercing doubles as a swiss army knife, right?

Kitsune said...

Oh, and, you have been turned into a billboard again, btw

Blonde said...

Nothing could go wrong? You only took 8 cases of beer for 10 people when there is nothing to do but drink in the middle of no where.

I think a beer shortage in that situation is tragic!

I hope that you had a fabulous time! I look forward to reading the stories!

anybody said...

A shower. . .you didn't mention one of those. I'm sure you'll have a well-anticipated reuinion with your bathroom facilities when you return!

Wez said...

I've always wanted a Walkman

LocuTus of Borg said...

Man, I hope AMG made it back ok ...

Anonymous said...

So like, were there killings induced by chronic beer starvation?

Should we ready ourselves for news reports about " A tragic loss of life when some novice canoers didn't remember the basics and forgot to pack the recognised minimum saftey standard of 1 case of beer per person"?
Sigh.
It's an all too common story.

Of course, you have those pyschic powers to magic yourself up some beer so really, there should be no problem.

Dear Lord, don't let her powers fail her now...

Thomas, the Retarded Monkey said...

Could we just go ahead and announce AMG dead, so I can get my walkman already now?

Huh?

The walkman will fit my big monkey ears nicely.

Weary Hag said...

Hope you're having a marvelous time! By the time you're reading this, you'll be back ... OR, I'll be listening to some very fine tunes on your Walkman. In either case, I'll bet you had yourself some great fun.

The Other Half said...

They still make walkmans?? just wear your arm floaties...you'll be ok...beer koozies work good too

NIGHTHAWK44 said...

take that walkman and jam it up that dirty ass of yours.

I totally think you're anonymous..I bet that pic isn't of you right???? Gawd..gimme a break...

Anonymous said...

Okay, stop it!
That's a Monday AND a Tuesday without a new entry.
WE. ARE. WORRIED.

But more than worried, disconcerted by the break in routine. You blog EVERY week-day. We rely on you.
What am I supposed to read with my coffee and chocolate bar?

Anyone would think you didn't care or something!
COME BACK!

please?
