As some of the Friday night Kossacks may have noticed, there was no FNBB this past week. Well, I'll elaborate as to why. I had been having some nausea, and general trouble with digestion. I had a lower and upper GI on Thursday. Wouldn't you know it... Bad news. Sadly, drinking even a small amount is bad for my 'condition' and so I can no longer host FNBB. The temptation would be too much. It is serious, but if I behave, I increase my odds considerably, or so they tell me.  

Do not, I repeat do not ask me how I'm doing. I have been asked more times than I can count over the course of this last weekend. I'll answer that question for everyone now. I am excellent.

There are those out there that don't know about FNBB, so I'll post the first of the series in its entirety below the fold.

I'm thinking about making this a series (if it's well received). I like many others have chosen BSG over a night on the town. It's just not the same when you watch it hungover, so a blog entry seemed like a great way to pass the next two or such hours.

This series, if it is to become one will always feature five questions that you must answer in your first post. It will also feature five questions that you can answer later regarding the latest news.

Here we go:

What are you drinking, and if it's prune juice, try a fiber suppliment instead? It tastes way less gross.
Did you tell anyone you had plans, just so you could hang out on DKos?
How early did you skip out of work this afternoon?
Are you going to be fixated on your computer monitor all weekend (as I'm sure I will be), or are you going to do anything interesting? If so, what is it?
What's your reason for beer blogging tonight?
h/t to a consistant Friday post on Rich Meyer's Capitol Fax Blog, who's title was so excellent, I borrowed it, but I think I'm still good with fair use, because I added night.

On to round two:

How has PillPoppingComedian affected your drinking this week? I think his crap's good for our side, but man, hearing his putrid bile is not for those with weak stomachs.
How have you been affected by the downturn? If it's been rough, tell us how, and if there is anything we can do to help. Even if it is just to send a twelve pack via UPS.
Who do you want to see in the 10 o'clock spot on MSNBC? I vote Chris Hayes, but feel free to disagree with me... if you dare.
If you could write a special comment to the Greedy Obstructionist Party, what would it be titled?
This goes back a ways, but did you ever play a drinking game revolving around things Sarah Palin said?
Well that's it for the questions. Have at it, and if you enjoy the conversation let me know. I'm going to post a TJ first and then answer my first five. This should be kind of fun.

>>>Edit to add a poll, and let all know that the response is awesome. This will be a weekly feature.

There is no poll this time. There are no questions that should be answered. Other than who the fuck will pick up the FNBB series and run with it.

Somone stand up and be counted.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
