Holiday Post #11: The Cinnamon Babka & The Underpanties

On Friday night the English Department had its annual holiday party, the 1st one I've been to in many many years. I wasn't going to bring anything because I wasn't planning to eat anything, but then while shopping, I came upon an entire rack of Babka. Of course, the chocolate Babka were on top & the cinnamon were on the bottom, but if I've learned anything from the Seinfeld episode "The Dinner Party" other than that the Black & White cookie is a symbol of racial unity, it's that cinnamon Babka takes a back seat to no Babka. So w/ Babka in hand (wrapped in foil to look as though I made it), off I went to Jim & Rachel's house before the party. Jim was off to a different party 1st but Rachel was there as was Steve (Annette was @ the party early to help set up). Rachel was making food for the kids & the baby-sitter, Taquitos from Jose Ole! which Steve proceeded to say over & over & over all night long... Taquitos... from Jose Ole!!!When we got to the party, there was food & wine a plenty, but very few Lecturers. In fact only 2 others were there & of those 2, I only know the one I didn't actually see. It was fun though as I then got to do my part to unite the GAs w/ the faculty... just like Rosa Parks would've done. The Babka was a hit, but all the food was really good. I was a bit puzzled by the "Award Winning" brownies though. I don't know who made them, & if the maker happens to read this, I mean no offense, but what type of award could they have won? They were good, but far from the best brownies I've ever had... even if I don't count the ones I had @ Dead shows 15 years ago, they weren't that special. That said, they were still brownies which are usually pretty good none-the-less.After the string trio which was performing (they did a cool version of "Whiskey for Breakfast") finished, Jim & Joe Csicsila took the stage & played for the rest of the evening. Son Volt, Van Morrison, Ryan Adams, Grateful Dead... it was a good time. After they finished we went back to Jim & Rachel's for drinks, but Rachel crashed immediately which prompted Annette to talk about the old days when girls would freeze the bra & underpanties of the first girl who fell asleep @ a slumber party. Of course, I've heard of this tradition, but I've never completely the homoerotic way they would remove the undergarments from the sleeping girl w/o her waking up. More importantly, she used the word "underpanties." Awesome!I'll post more pics from the party when Kristen gets off her ass & up-loads them. Not that she's to blame for the lack of pics... @ least she remembered her camera unlike me whose sorry, lazy ass left it on the table. For now, we'll have to rely on these which I just copped from Rachel's Facebook profile. I don't know what the Hell is going on in this picture of Joe, but it looks a bit naughty. While we're waiting for the rest of the pictures, I'm going to take pride in the fact that I blogged about htis before Steve & y'all can keep up w/ the nominations for Celebrity MILF of the Year.

Dang, that's a shiny tie.

I am SO gonna start wearing a suit and tie to parties. I've got all these shirts that are too saucy for the button-down crowd, but never get any mileage. Burns Party - lookooowwwt.

Speaking of which... anyone having one this year? (hint, hint)

I enjoy the taquitos from Jose Ole. They're pretty tasty. I even gave them my award for tastiest frozen Mexican item I bought at the grocery store this month. So next time I serve those bitches up, they won't just be known as Taquitos...from Jose Ole. They will be Award Winning Taquitos from Jose Ole!

Andre said...

Is that some sort of little known JasonDuerr.com award?

Nice!

jose ole - what's not to love? i only fell asleep for a minute or two and was then back in the game, mr.! i do agree that underpanties is a pretty funny word.

Actually, that award is pretty well known with frozen Mexican food afficianados. Go to the chatrooms, they're always talking about it.

Mini tacos are far superior!

Rosa would be proud of you.

I bet the brownies were better than your sorry ass store bought Babka and yet you still throw stones.

"Are they the panties your mother laid out for you." I'll wait for you crazy Sienfield dweebs to correct that if it's wrong and if it's right I expect to see episode name and year stat!

I'll have to learn you a little literature so you don't look like a dumbass next time, Jason.
