Banquet Checklist for The Corrupted...
- Set the VCR.
- Check batteries
in remote control for slow-mo replays and "Is Chad in that crowd somewhere?"
- Get computer
up and running for instant message conversations between The Corrupted. Check.
- Keep steady
supply of food nearby to avoid missing a moment of the banquet or NASCAR-themed
commercials we haven't seen since the last race. Check.
- Stow phone nearby
for inevitable phone calls from Mum. Will probably include dissertation on
dress, demeanor, and speaking
- Hang on everyone
of Jimmie's words and hope he doesn't thank 'a lot of awful people', and that
he remembers to THANK
CHAD THIS YEAR!
- Stock up on
alcoholic beverages, in case the coverage is as painful as it was last year,
watching James Woods attempt
to entertain the crowd. Check.
- Devise a drinking
game in case such a need arises. Check.
- Prepare exit
strategy if they have another trapeze/ballet/whatever-the-freak-it-was entertainment
thing as last year.

- Remember to
take my "I *heart* Marissa, Denise and Carrie" sign. Check.
- Somehow get
on TV so the girls have something to talk about. Check.
- Leave the trusty
clipboard at home. Che...WAIT! Okay, yes. I can do that. Check.
