for those who know the Beastie Boy lyrics to which the title of the post refers…
Cynthia over at Balls in the Air is hosting the Brass Monkey Virtual 5k next weekend (19th, 20th, 21st) and you’re invited! I love it. Check out the “whys” and the “what ups” by clicking on the image of the Brass Monkey or on the link.
Jimmy signed us up and I want to thank Cynthia for giving us a reason to like the chill in the air and a much needed challenge to perk us up this winter.
There are prizes…for running in the coldest temps, for running with the least amount of clothing on (of course, within the rules of the law), and for just running (Mama like that last one!).

(chorus) Brass Monkey – that funky Monkey

Drink Brass Monkey – here’s how you feel
Put your left leg down – your right leg up
Tilt your head back – let’s finish the cup
M.C.A. with the bottle – D. rocks the can

Adrock drinks three – Mike D. is D.
Double R. foots the bill most definitely
I drink Brass Monkey and I rock well
I got a Castle in Brooklyn – that’s where I dwell…
