Annnnnndd we're back...

The blog is back after a month long hiatus--let's chalk the delay up to utter laziness. Glimpses of the Sweatpant Era in college.

Anyway, today's a little chilly here in Chicago. I oozed out of bed this morning to discover the temperature was a scorching -10 with a wind chill of -28. And thank you Dan and Kush for your wonderful text messages reminding me of that at 8:30 this morning. Thankfully I live such an active lifestyle and never set foot outside.

On a hotter note, I've decided to grow out a mustache. It's midly creepy, which, let's be honest, is the look I was going for. It hasn't exactly gotten rave reviews. I'm just curious what will have a longer shelf life, the 'stache or "Howie Do It. "

Rumor has it Bryant Gumbel, Jr. has reached the twilight of his life. It sounds like the summer Megan let him stay with Phil, Dan and I is beginning to show--all that booze and doing those lines off Phil's weiner finally caught up to him. Farewell Bryant.

It's funny actually, over the past couple of weeks Bryant Gumble Jr has been trembling and recounting all of him terrible memories from that summer. He's been swimming around a little bit today... I will keep everyone updated.
Also, welcome back I have missed you!!

You really need to put up some moustache pictures. I'm sure Kavita loves the creepy look. I tried to grow a beard for a couple weeks.. I'm sure you can guess how that came out.

All I have to say about Bryant, is that he was begging for that coke and I accept no blame for the debauchery that followed. That little fucker loved every minute of it too.

Great to you have you back Big Ern. I totally remember when you all re-enacted that memorable scene from "Very Bad Things" with Bryant Gumble Jr. portraying the stripper.

I also figured you would appreciate the weather update in the midst of your slumber. Just another balmy winter day in Chicago. See you in July.

If you didn't set foot outside, how did the dog go to the bathroom?
