Picture A Day - Day 10

Day 10: A picture of the person you do the most ****** up things with.

I don’t know about ****** up things, but Ville and I have certainly done a lot of weird and wonderful things in the 25 years that we’ve known each other. Some things we’re proud to pants ourselves (and each other) with, and some things we’ll take to the grave.

The one thing (although there were many) that drew us together when we first met was that we're both prop comics, camera hams, spotlight stealers, and improv artists. We'll upstage you in a heartbeat and won't even mean to. In earlier days a party didn't start until we walked into the room, and few people could keep up with us once we were there. Those that tried usually got left in the dust. We can't help it. We're just kinetic when we get together. Libra and Gemini, you know? We spark off each other and inspire each other to higher and higher levels of idiocy. Then we pay for it the next day. I've always compared us to Lennon/McCartney, Pats/Eds, and Groucho/Chico Marx.

I can't decide on just one picture for this one, so you get three, not counting one at the top, which was taken on New Year's Eve, 1988. And while drinking on New Year'e Eve isn't particularly ****** up, I think it's pretty clear that we were ****** up.
