The Tower

This story is being written for two reasons: 

1. To explain to SilentlySuffering, Snowbunny and Marcus about the "cease fire" during our epic war last night


2. Because it's ******* hilarious

And so it begins.....

SilentlySuffering and Snowbunny, backed up by Marcus were fighting a losing battle against Dasmuggler and I last night.  Britney Spears (and other horribly overproduced pop acts) versus the Dark Side (real music).

Some time, in the middle of this cataclysmic war, and while we were on the phone, Das decided he would take a zolpidem tartrate, which he usually takes about 30 minutes before going to bed.  What he didn't tell me was that he also took a cyclobenzaprine (pain/anxiety reliever) with it. 

As we were talking and laughing about what we would post next to defend the Dark Side, Das went from coherent to incredibly incoherent without even as much as a warning.  He was making sense and the next thing he said....well, he wasn't even using complete words!!

Being the ever so caring and protective girlfriend that I am, I repeatedly tried to tell him to turn off the computer and go to bed.  The following is a re-enactment of the conversation. 

Please note: Das was speaking in the most drunken/stoned voice I've ever heard.

Me: Honey, you have to turn the computer off and get into bed.

Das: Wha?  But we're fighting the war.....

Me: We can continue it tomorrow.  It's not going anywhere.

Das: My monitor is dripping.

Me: Okay, hun, listen to me.  Turn off the computer and get into bed. 

Das: But I can't...they're all staring at me.

Me: Who's staring at you?

Das: The people in the computer.

Me: Oh...kay.  Come on, time for bed for you. 

Das: But the tower.

Me: What tower?

Das: We have to defend the tower.  We had the tower, now they have the tower.

Me:  We have the tower.

Das: No, they have the tower.

Me: No, hun, I got the tower back.  I'm going to keep it safe until tomorrow.

Das: But the tower....

Me: Listen to me, honey.  Turn off the computer, please.

Next thing I hear is the computer shutting down.

Das: That was loud........where did the tower go?

Me: The tower is safe. 


Me: Honey?  

Das: Wha?

Me: Are you going to make it to bed okay?

Das: Why?

Me: Because I'm worried.  Are you going to be okay?

Das: I....don't know....I think so.....

After a few more minutes of encouraging to get up and walk carefully to the bed, we said our good nights and sweet dreams and we both hung up.  Or, I assumed he hung up.  Because then I sat in my living room for a few minutes, worrying that he was going to pass out right at the computer.  Or on the bathroom floor.

So, I got a little manic, thinking frantically to myself, "Do I have his roommate's phone number?  How am I going to get in touch with his roommate to check on him?"

Thankfully, Das made it to bed safely.

However, he did not remember a thing from last night. 

Except for the ******* tower.  He remembered the tower because he asked me earlier, "What was up with the tower last night?"

You should have heard him.

I know. LOL

Das, while mixing meds, try adding mewolds blue pill into it so then both ends are taken care of. ;-)

Not always.

Who wants to stop caring about below the waist?!

the ones that effect above the neck are so go you stop caring about below the waist

Alas, the only pills I have affect me below the waist.

too late woo hoo!

Don't give him any ideas.

Maybe the EtherBunny took the tower.......

You can have whats left of Britney, Ether

Hey, Dasmuggler, how well does your medication mix with Ether? I might have to talk to your roommate about a sleepover.

Party in the Tower woo hoo<br />

London calling to the faraway towns<br />
Now war is declared, and battle come down<br />
London calling to the underworld<br />
Come out of the cupboard, you boys and girls<br />
London calling, now don't look to us<br />
Phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust<br />
London calling, see we ain't got no swing<br />
'Cept for the ring of that truncheon thing<br />
<br />
[Chorus 1:]<br />
The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in<br />
Meltdown expected, the wheat is growing thin<br />
Engines stop running, but I have no fear<br />
'Cause London is drowning, and I live by the river<br />
<br />
London calling to the imitation zone<br />
Forget it, brother, you can go it alone<br />
London calling to the zombies of death<br />
Quit holding out, and draw another breath<br />
London calling, and I don't wanna shout<br />
But while we were talking, I saw you nodding out<br />
London calling, see we ain't got no high<br />
Except for that one with the yellowy eyes<br />
<br />
[Chorus 2: x2]<br />
The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in<br />
Engines stop running, the wheat is growing thin<br />
A nuclear error, but I have no fear<br />
'Cause London is drowning, and I live by the river<br />
<br />
Now get this<br />
<br />
London calling, yes, I was there, too<br />
An' you know what they said? Well, some of it was true!<br />
London calling at the top of the dial<br />
After all this, won't you give me a smile?<br />
London calling<br />
<br />
I never felt so much alike [fading] alike alike alike

The Clash just took the tower <br />
<br />
and beheaded Britney

Now way Ck and das....Britney will rule the tower!! <br />
<br />
SS - Lets make Britney the queen of the tower :)

Britney will fall to her fatal end.

We will throw Britney off with the HSM cast frozen next to Walt Disney

das - you cant blame the meds everytime :)<br />
<br />
SS- run with the tower!!!

In about 20 minutes, I'm sure I'll be attempting to get him to bed safely. Again.

in about 20 minutes I don't think I'll remember that anyway

Trust me on this one, you don't want this tower. Could you kindly give it back to me, please?

I just took the same pills<br />
<br />
maybe I'll find the tower <br />
I had the keyboard bend and warp on me one time<br />
Now you know why I sometimes see smurfs

I know what the tower is, but it's my secret. Das knows, but that's because we don't keep secrets.

I think the chipmunk went into the tower and got the meds....LMAO

CK, that's the brightest conversation I have ever heard das have. He should take that stuff more often. <br />
<br />
<br />
das, just kidding. lol

Do not feed the chipmunk.

hmmmm that might be difficult, the chipmunk has a very ridged diet

I dont know CK...what if das shared his drugs with the chipmunk?

Wait...the chipmunk ninja...well...okay, I'm not going to go there. But, the chipmunk wouldn't do that to Das. Trust me on this.

Lo mein ...schmo mein....I guess das's meds was telling him about the <br />
<br />
I wasnt listening in last night but LMAO at the whole conversation CK captured...<br />
<br />
Watch out das the Chipmunk Ninja is gonna take the tower from you ...shhhh!!!

You forgot the war music I had playing in the background

That's what you get for taking more of the lo mein....teehee.

I think it was the lo mein last night

Well, at least we can say you are valiant and brave and loyal. <br />
<br />
Though, we're not quite sure what it is you're talking about.<br />
<br />
But I can say this: Holy hell, you made me laugh last night.

I will defend the tower till my last breath<br />
<br />
whatever the tower is...
