The cookie factory is temporarily on hold as we ended up making so many cookies that we now need to move into a 12,000 square foot living space to house both of our asses.

After we were thoroughly covered in flour and had eaten enough frosting and m&m’s to give me a stomach ache, I was in the mood to go bowling. I have a lovely pink swirled 6 pound ball (BALLS) that continues to sit in the garage, completely unloved and unused. Also? I wasn’t really feeling the darts on Saturday night. Bowling, pool, darts… I might as well just buy a pick up truck now and a case of Milwaukee’s Best.

So the meester decides to call a local bowling alley, to see what the status was on getting a lane on a Saturday night. How’d that go?

Him: Yeah, I wanted to call and see if you had lanes available for tonight, or if there were leagues going on right now?
alley worker: Yeah, we have lanes available.
Him: Ok, how much is it per game?
aw: well it’s $70 per lane for two hours.
him: Did you say $70?
aw: $70.
him: Well, there are only two of us…
aw: Well, you might want to come in around nine then, because it’ll be $17 per person for two hours.
him: Thank you. *hangs up the phone*
me: DID HE SAY IT WAS SEVENTY FUCKING DOLLARS TO BOWL???

Look man, I know I live in California, I know things are more expensive, but I think I’ve paid $5.00 per person per game TOPS anywhere that I’ve bowled. Is bowling the new black and I just don’t know about it? Are there a lot of posh people bowling in special Jimmy Choo bowling shoes and Donna Karan shirts? Do they have hip waitresses serving Grey Goose Cosmos? Why the FUCK is bowling so expensive?? It’s BOWLING, people. Most of the people who bowl belong to the Elks club, have combovers and smell like old man funk.

After that, staying in and eating cookies seemed a lot more appealing.

Is it even galactic bowling? Are they special shoes or something?
Holy shit that is a lot of money to bowl.
I think the last time we all went (about 10 of us), it was like $50. For all of us. And it was galactic bowling.
I am never going to Ca…lol

Here’s the scoop:

Sea Bowl in Pacifica.

Best views ever at a bowling alley.

My man LETTERED in bowling, geek that he is. My ball is purple and so are my shoes. We’re some bowling fools in my house. I totally suck at it by the way.

This post makes me think of The Big Lebowski and that makes me happy. The end.

Any sport that you can smoke and drink WHILE PLAYING isn’t actually a sport.
