And In case you haven't heard, we're having a blog promotion*! If you go here and here, vote for us, send a screenshot and your address to firstname.lastname@example.org, I'll send you stickers and a handwritten note as a token of my gratitude!
*Promotion = shameless bribe.
Now, onto what you all really came here for; this week's drinking game! I'm not going to lie; I am RULL excited about this one. I've been in the mood to watch Weekend at Bernie's ever since I suggested you all "Lomax" your dead relatives to give me more votes last week. Plus, W@B's is just such a classic summer movie. It makes me want to get a perm and a speedboat, go to the beach and see what hilarious hijinx I'll get myself into. Growing up, W@B's was one of my and Becca's favorite movies to watch. I think we've seen it about 500 times and can quote not only complete scenes, but can also the vintage '80's previews before the movie (specifically for Quantum Leap, the Jim Belushi movie and a PSA about drugs where a chick dives into an empty swimming pool.) Some little kids have Bambi, Becca and I had Weekend at Bernie's. (Which may explain both of us slightly more.)
Thus, it's a privilege and an honor to give you The Weekend at Bernie's Drinking Game!
(FYI: The entire movie is on youtube in 9 chapters, located here. You're welcome.)
