I drove down to Ohio unviersity , the farthest drive of my life . It was good for me, I did it without error and there wasn't anything good on the radio but way too much country on so I listened to monkey island music for the 4 hour drive . 1 and 2 I pass murray city, I get there to pick up my sister and while helping to move her stuff to the car I pull a guybrush and tear the bags like a wild fein and stuff goes spilling out. We get all settled one road home has a detour and get sort of lost . I get out to look at a road sign , a hole creeps up on me in the now dark and I am in over my head a giant hole that I have to climb out of . I disappear of my sister's sight . If that wasn't enough after I climb out later I get pulled over by a cop and he calls in all his buddies to give me the drunk test individually , all 3 of his hence men. I wasn't druink, I was tired and pulled through a red light, and took the other lane a little too long. They took their time , and now I may loose my license for the summer.

  • I was around a friends place, and the door to one of the bedrooms kept on opening, then slamming shut, creating a really loud and unpleasant noise. When someone suggested they got a doorstop, without thinking I quickly said 'A REALLY EVIL LOOKING DOORSTOP?' in a really evil voice, and they all looked at me funny.

    True story.

  • Ok, gather around the campfire for this here story. Last summer I was in Lopburi, one of the oldest cities in Thailand. Anyway this city was quite bizarre. In the city centre there was this old temple where hundreds of monkeys were living. I was told that on some days in the year the monkeys disappear completely and are nowhere to be found. And then all of a sudden they return.
    Sounds almost like a plot for one of the new Monkey island chapters, huh?
    Anyway when I entered a restaurant, I saw this:

    That's the second biggest monkey head I've ever seen in Lopburi!

  • Where do you keep the monkey Paco? Where!?

  • I don't know anything about these missing monkeys. I swear. I just want to warn you!

    Beware of the monkeys! They are listening. And they'll eat your finger if you don't watch out.

  • Hehe, scary sign and then there's that little thing in the background with his back turned :)

    That looks like where they got the idea .

  • I once walk around the whole day telling people I wanted to be a pirate

  • Once, In a game of dungeons and dragons, my character wound up in possession of a human skull, so I started carrying him around and named him murray

    That is so cool. It would actually be quite an interesting idea for an MI game. LeChuck has monkeynapped the monkeys, including Timmy the Monkey, what's he up to? Well it's bound to be evil!

    Was it really touristy there? I mean obviously it was a tourist place, but did you have tonnes of Americans loudly saying how "quaint" the place was, or was it relatively quiet? Looks a nice place to visit :)

  • My grandparents have a house on this big lake and there are little islands scattered on it... One of the Islands is known as Goat Island because a woman kept her goats there instead of putting them in a fence so they had a nice little island to live on, trees, grass, water, even a little beach.... In the summer it was fun as a kid to take a row boat and explore the little islands... In fact I should do that with my kids sometime soon.
