"It is possible to die from eating. But I think to be professional means you don't die." (Takeru Kobayashi)

That was the three-word email response I received from WIP when I asked when tickets for this year's Wing Bowl will go on sale. Last year's festivities sold out on the first day. Thankfully there was no shortage of tickets on eBay (around $10 per ticket versus the $5 face value), but I'll still try to get our tickets when they go on sale in 20 days.

I can't remember if seating was assigned -- or if anyone really cared -- but if it is, I'll buy tickets for the whole group. That's assuming I can buy 10 or 12 at once (stupid limits). Here's a random memory from last year's contest (stupid paint):

The tickets will go on sale sometime in December. Lower level have assigned seats. Upper level is general admission. I have a feeling you'll be able to get onto the floor this year though.

all the seating was assigned, but you wouldn't know that, huh Mr. entourage. Yeah Pete, I am talking to you. Are you going to hang out all night if you are in the competition?

If it wasn't for the stupid paint, we wouldn't even be able to see THAT much. Stupid big board operator.

I'll hang out for a bit. My job has me in the UK time zone, so it'll be like lunch to me.

Get one for me too! I'll try to get ticket(s) myself, but if I can't, I'll pay upt to $50 to get a seat -- where ever the seat may be.

This is my last hope. Initially, wanted to compete -- but I'm in A.I.C.E. AND I'm not from the (Philly) area. So, something tell's me I'm out.

Then, I wanted to be a Wingette. I said to myself back in July, "I'm going to lose 10lbs a month, every month, until Wing Bowl -- that's 70lbs!" I lost 15lbs in six weeks, then it all fell apart. Now, I think I gained everything back. Damn.

So now all I can do is watch. I promise that, if I do get a seat by you guys, I'll keep my shirt on -- just for you! I'l be well-behaved...at least until you get so wasted you forget who I am (and something tells me that won't be long). Then, it's all go.

BTW: Dave, did you have a chance to check out that website I e-mailed you a while back? What did you think of the girls? Should I look into booking Mandi for the tailgate party?

If you're booking someone let me know... I have friends that need tuition money...

Jill, you're killing me here. (Irlfriendgay eadsray histay logbray!) Just kidding...this is a censorship free zone and I welcome any ideas for Wing Bowl mayhem.

I was thinking about hiring a professional "pole technician" to hang out at the U-Haul (by the way, we need to name the U-Haul) but then I thought it might be better to just leave the dancing up to those who know it second best: drunk girls who happen to be in the area. We'll see.

Although Pete, I'm all about helping someone get an education. We'll need headshots and a summary of "relavant skills" by January 1.

As for tix, I'm not really sure I want to be on the floor to be honest. I remember last year, sitting in our upper level perch with our clear view of the stage and eater procession and, most importantly, the scoreboard displaying all of the, um, action. I'm not convinced that the floor is the best place to be. Especially after a night of drinking. A seated, nap-friendly position might be better.

Pete, let's schedule a casting couch next weekend.

I think we could get closer to the board and the show by going a couple of levels down. We were still looking down at the board, if I remember correctly.

We also need a small step for the Uhaul, and I was thinking about maybe expanding the back a bit somehow to keep the draft out. We should park at the end where there was more open space.

I'm working on a way to heat the pole so that its more inviting. It was pretty frigid last year(Thank God for Evan's 5 bottles of Black Velvet).

I can hear them now. "there's warm pole over at the UEPA-Haul"

Sorry about bringing it up Dave...but it's good to get things rolling. Pete, definitely try to get some pictures, info, and rates of the girls. I want this to be the best Wing Bowl party ever!

Oh it will, Jill. It will.

You're not getting any "naps" at the event, Dave, I hate to break it to ya.

As for the cost of a dancer...don't worry about it too much. I intend to contribute the cost of ONE girl, but if you guys want to chip in for additional girls for a girl-on-girl lesbo thing -- or even just to have more than one (professional) dancer entertain -- that's cool, too.

And as always, I'm only a few drinks away from doing my own debauchery. If you don't like it, well...a quick shot of pepper spray in my direction, and I'll get the point -- LOL!

Do we need a spray bottle with water in it on hand in case Jill gets feral?

Lets see her change her tune at 6 am when she can't keep her eyes open, and then goes into the warm stadium from the cold outside.

OMG! I wrote a journal entry on my (new) blog, Miss Glutton's Bliss, for Wing Bowl where I mentioned wanting to lose weight to have a "better body for debauchery". Check out the comment some guy left me:

An online dictionary's definition of "debauchery" is this:
"excessive indulgence in sensual pleasures; intemperance."

No one in his/her right mind would want to engage in this. It is doubly ridiculous to want to lose weight, to improve one's body, in order to turn around and ABUSE one's body in some other way.

The definition uses the word "sensual" (pertaining to the five senses), but not "sexual," indulgence. If you meant that you wanted to engage in "excessive (sexual) indugence," you are even more of a fool, since that kind of activity would just lead to far greater misery than you are now suffering. A pattern of fornication eventually results in, among other things: veneral disease (aka STD) ... pregnancy ... abortion ... lowered self-esteem ... temptations to suicide.

Why? Because fonication (like gluttony) is against the "natural law" that is "written by God on our hearts." Both gluttony and fornication are mortal sins, which cut off our special relationship with God and put us on the road to an eternity in hell.

I urge you to give up competitive eating, which has made you so disgustingly obese, and to give up all plans for debauchery. I urge you to repent of all your past mortal sins, asking God to forgive you and make your soul ready for heaven.

God bless you.
