...to Buckley's I must go. Whoever the idiot was that took the toll off of 520 years ago I curse you for it's resurgence with a vengence. They had a 35 cent toll until 1979 and for some reason they figured, hey this thing will last forever so we don't have to stash away any
money for it's replacement. The way I calculate it at a stated 115,000 cars a day each at $.35 that is $40,250 per day, $14,691,250 per year, and $484,811,250 over the last 33 years that there has not been a toll on the bridge. That doesn't even account for slight increases over the
past 33 years. If our government could get their heads out from between their legs we would not be stuck with tolls that are rediculously high.
I love to host at buckley's. They have the best chicken tacos that I have ever had. And the quizzers are second to none, except maybe those NASA rocket scientists that sent billions of dollars to Mars. That was a bright move. We had questions on garage door replacements, Keanu in The Replacements, and how often you really should replace that dingy old toothbrush. Stars that may or may not have made that over the hill age and the unique facts about about Spain that we thought were important.
The scores were close throughout most of the night but in the end we had The Village Idiots taking home the $50 1st place prize, Werewolf Bar Mitvah taking home the $25 2nd place prize, and Piso Mojado taking home the free pitcher of beer. Thank you to all the teams that came out last night, especially Ayn Rand:Bitch, Athiest, Paul Ryan's Pinup Girl who recently moved to Seattle from Salt Lake City. Stacy
will be back next week.
