“Fra-gee-lay. That must be Italian”

Posted in Articles, Lifestyle on December 23, 2010 by oldcountrystrong

Christmas is by far my favorite holiday. I love the music, I love the gifts, I love poinsettias, I love Jesus, I love Santa Claus (hell we share the same name), hell I even love the inherent stress associated with Christmas in the Northwest. So in honor of my namesake I thought I should give back to OCS and the OCBC…but this first requires figuring out who has been naughty and who has been nice.

OCS: Interesting articles with good discussion, nice, working on a post in the wee hours of the morn with an angry Filipina next to me, naughty, advice on how to survive the rise of the zombies, nice.
VERDICT: Nice.
GIFT: Another year of  helping out with the site.

Z: Loving brother, nice, great coach, nice, good friend, nice, terrible counter, naughty, awful speller, naughty.
VERDICT: Nice.
GIFT: A pair of pants (if you have ever seen Z wear pants raise your hand).

Roo: Makes great videos, nice, good coach, nice, huge BSG fan, nice.
VERDICT: Nice.
GIFT: A new shoulder to lift with.

Wes: Squats the house, nice, never argues with anyone, nice.
VERDICT: Nice.
GIFT: A new pair of shorts to replace the ones he ripped front squatting.

Slab: Enthusiasm, nice, encyclopedia on all things meathead, nice.
VERDICT: Nice.
GIFT: Xplode!.

Carrie: Southern accent, nice, missed week 4 of the current caliber cycle, naughty. VERDICT: Naughty.
GIFT: Wallballs.

Greybeard: In a current state of Awesomeness, nice, old timey, nice, telling off a d-bag in a random NY gym, nice.
VERDICT: Nice.
GIFT: A new claw hammer.

The Chan Sisters: Helpful, nice, easy targets for jokes, nice.
VERDICT: Nice.
GIFT: This clip.

Finally pursuant to popular demand it is my honor as the reigning food eating champ of the gym to present the first ever OCS EATING CHALLENGE. I ho-ho-ho hope you’re hungry. This is a milk and cookies challenge. Rules are simple, eat as many cookies and drink as much milk as you can in one hour. List what type of cookies you ate, if they are not a generic brand or home made you may want to take a picture so that accuracy on the amount you consume can be gauged.  I prefer Ms. Safeway cookies personally, she bought the recipe from Mama Filer. Super secret prize awaits the winner.
