Tater Salad

Posted on Sunday, March 14th, 2004

Dave!Finally, I had a most excellent weekend! Some friends had invited me to see Ron "Tater Salad" White's stand-up comedy show in Seattle and, since he was the funniest part of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour DVD, I very much wanted to go. Comedians usually repeat their material over and over, so I was guessing that most of his show I would have already seen on the DVD, but this was not the case with Mr. White. Most of the show was entirely new material, with only two bits (and the encore) being something I had already heard.

My ticket to see Tater Salad himself, Mr Ron White!

Since the name of his show was the Drunk in Public Tour, it seemed only fitting that we were drunk to see it. I don't know whether that was a contributing factor, but the show was funny. Of course, the only problem with spending your night amazingly drunk, is the hangover you get the next morning. Fortunately, we tried a new "dietary supplement" called "Chaser" that claims to eliminate hangovers entirely. Surprisingly enough, it actually worked for some of us (including me!). No spinning room, headache, body aches, dry heaves, nothing! That's pretty cool. It's a shame I don't drink very often anymore, because it's sure a lot more fun without a hangover!

One of my intentions for this weekend was to drink enough that I could pass out and finally get some sleep. Unfortunately, our drink of choice was a Jäger Bomber, which made getting any sleep impossible. A Jäger Bomber is a chilled glass half-filled with Red Bull that you then drop a shot glass filled with Jägermeister into. Since Red Bull is a high-energy drink that is specially formulated to keep you awake and energized, having seven Jäger Bombers with beer backs and a Long Island Iced Tea means I was even more awake that usual.

Anyway, after a lovely two-hour drive home, it's now 2:00 PM, and I still haven't been to bed yet. Here's hoping I can manage a quick nap before Alias comes on at 9:00!

    see at that point you stay up until proper bed time, then you have more chance of really crashing out. If you have a sleep during the day it’s even worse to get to sleep that night. Well that has been my experience anyway 🙂

    I attempted a nap, but the many cans of Red Bull must have still been in my system, because I was still wired. So instead I washed clothes (whee!) until another excellent episode of Alias aired at 21:00. I think I finally managed to get 3 or 4 hours of sleep around midnight though. Is there a point at which I am just going to collapse from total lack of sleep? In the past month I think I am averaging 3 hours a night. I should be dead by now shouldn’t I?

    Lack of sleep wont kill you but lack of sex will so you are right that you should be dead by now.

  4. Dave2 says:

    BWAHHH HA HAAAAA! It’s so funny because it’s true.

    Maybe you should join up with these people

    And I must question the no sex=death?!?

    I think the polyphasic method is geared toward people who only want to sleep a few hours a day? I’ll have to visit the web site to be sure, but I think I read that in Discovery magazine or something like that. I don’t know that this would work for me, because I am one of those wacky people who LIKE to sleep. Sad, I know, but I’m lazy so what can I say? As for lack of sex being a cause for death… if you were a guy, there would be no reason to question it! It’s true alright! I’m certain to drop dead any minute now… if you don’t see any new posts here, there’s a pretty good chance I’m done gone. 🙂

  8. Hmmm, I once drank so much vodka red bull on a night out in Melbourne that I couldn’t get into a night club because the guy on the door thought I was on Crystal Meth – beat that one Ron White. Seriously though kids, don’t try it. Red Bull is one lethal little bunny of a bugger to mix with alcohol.
