Lou Pickney's Online Commentary
November 26, 2003
This has been feast week for me. Yesterday the company treated us all to pizza from Domino's, and then today we had a massive Thanksgiving pot luck lunch. Plenty of turkey to go around, plus side dishes galore. Just an amazing amount of food. The cookies I brought ended up going untouched (though I'm sure someone will scarf them down at some point). If they were homemade I might be miffed, but they were Chips Ahoy Chewy, which I bought on my way in this morning. So no offense taken there. Then tomorrow morning I fly back to Nashville, where yet another wonderful Thanksgiving meal awaits. Should be quite nice.
I'm going to be back in Tampa on Saturday, videotaping a tag match with Bubba The Love Sponge teaming with Dusty Rhodes vs. Kevin Sullivan and "Rough House" Ralph Mosca. While I'm not expecting a five-star classic, it should be interesting to see the reaction that Dusty will receive (in the 1970s and early 80s, there was no bigger star in Florida than Dusty). Plus I've never seen Bubba work a match in person before, so that should be fun.

I've added some various items to my cubicle at work to spruce things up a bit. The latest is a postcard flier for a chick named "Milky" promoing a concert she had at Studio 54 at the
MGM Grand in Las Vegas. I ran across it while going through some bags in packing for tomorrow's trip back home. Also, I posted the note that the TSA left in my suitcase on my last trip home from Nashville informing me that they had searched it.
But right now it's time to get ready for a Wednesday night out in Ybor. Nothing too crazy, since I have an early flight tomorrow, but the holiday tomorrow should have the Green Iguana in good spirits. Hopefully my two hour nap earlier will keep me going till the real fun begins.
Is it just me, or does Michael Jackson's defense lawyer, Mark Geragos, sound more like a Phil Hendrie character than a real person? Hearing his rambling diatribe about the media sounded hilariously similar to what Hendrie did on Friday's show with his Jay Santos character talking about preventing people from talking about the case in public (under the guide of being a member of the "Citizens' Auxillary Police"). Sadly, though, Geragos' rant was serious...
