Sometimes, when travelling, weird things happen. Tonight was one of those nights.

I have a loft in TX. It's a nice, upscale place and I really REALLY like it a lot. They have fun parties and social events and almost everyone is really cool. (Notice, I said almost.)

There was a pool party today, with lots of people and lots of alcohol. I don't drink often, mostly because I'm diabetic, but also because it's more fun to watch the drunks than join them, most of the time.

Anyway... earlier tonight I was watching the Battlestar Galactica season finale, and there was someone pounding on the door. I assumed it was my coworker on this gig, since we share a place. So I cruise over, open the door and nobody was there. So I think, he's screwing with me... (technically it was a little early for him, but whatever...) so I say... "hello?"

That was a mistake. Out of nowhere, this drunkass fat mexican dude rushes me, catching me by surprise. He pushes me back and forces his way into the apartment. He starts yelling something about "the ship is going down, man..." and keeps trying to get further into my apartment.

Obviously, I didn't have a clue who he was, so I say "Dude, I don't have a clue who you are, but you need to get the hell out of here." He keeps on, getting more and more belligerent, and so I keep telling him to get the f*ck out. He keeps yelling "the ship is going down, man" and finally, he shoves me into the wall, and takes a swing at me.

At that point, it's ON...

Without going into a lot of blow by blow details, I whipped his fat drunk ass and threw him out, bleeding and crying, into the hallway.

Apparently, that wasn't enough for him, so he went down the hall a couple doors and pulled the same crap with another guy. Unfortunately, that dude's place got TRASHED, but he didn't get hurt.

Eventually the cops showed up and talked to everyone, I gave a statement and he's going to jail. From what some of the other folks said, he had been chugging tequila all night at the aforementioned pool party. From some of the crap I overheard him say to the cops, I think he thought he was in HIS apartment (both times?) which would explain why he was so pissed to find other folks in it...

The worst part of all of this? I missed almost 30 minutes of the BSG finale. Fortunately Sci-Fi is rerunning it after the Dresden Files.

Damn!! Guess the crap wasn't beat out of him enought the first time. Glad you're okay. Reminds me of when in college some F*CK'N FREEKY dude was standing over my bed one morning as I woke. He was stoned, so it wasn't so bad getting him out the door. Careful there.

I am glad you are OK. Missing your favorite show sucks but I guess you used that to give him a good enough beating.
