Tomorrow Night is Steak Night at the Petroleum Club
It's mud bug season so they will be boiled and served as appetizers. For dinner it will be just simple filet mignon slow grilled over mesquite and topped with the usual lump crab meat. Although I won't be imbibing (non alcohol, low carb diet) others will enjoy St. Pierre - 2009 a nice Red from the Bordeaux region of France. Artichokes and asparagus for sides. Mississippi Mud for desert which I will also forgo.
We will not be enjoying this twice weekly get together because we are more fortunate than whining losers like the Kent Raven or his butt buddy hoozdik......we will be enjoying it because we worked harder, smarter and made better decisions than those who's ambition helped them achieve a lofty level of mediocrity.
But what makes tomorrow really special is the club will be presenting our annual scholarships to two high school students for achieving excellence on scientific projects. These students were inspired by successful people in the area. We were going to give out a couple of awards for mediocre achievements but decided their jealousy of the high achievers would turn into comedy and this is a solemn occasion. Besides, Obama will probably take care of those mediocre rewards with a book of foods stamps or low interest student loans so they can attend a socialized government university and learn to have a deep hatred of freedom and personal responsibility.
