Well, it's certainly drinking time in my corner of the globe, and luckily I have a couple of beers worth bragging about.
First up is a Gouden Carolus, Tripel Abbey style (Belgian) . It's basically a light malted lager on steroids and packs a punch at 9%
My finishing beer is one I've never had before, the Trappistes Rochefort #6 - another Belgian. This one is a true trappist beer, and if you can ever get your hands on some, it is a must try. It is perfectly balanced with a sweet finish. The taste truly mask the stout 7.5%.
Whatta ya having this fine Friday night?
Early risers, 3rd shifters coming home from work, insomniacs, whatever the excuse, many of us are up and about at this hour and in need of the posbang that is usually the domain of those who have daytime access to MGoBoard.
As we're back in the Kosher OT range of posting and based on the "State of the Blog" what the blog needs is a good pos-bang. Since we can't have that yet, how about a general random whatever/drinking/friday/weekend/etc. thread?
What's going on this weekend? What are you drinking tonight? Which meteor are you rooting for in the B1G game? Got any good gifs/photoshops?
I'll be enjoying some 5 Rabbit later tonight, and for a Gif? A classic:
Got to work at 5am for a meeting. Upside is that I can peace out at like 1:30 now.
Alcohol sounds awful to ingest right now, but it's Friday after a rough week, so the idea of alcohol seems great. So, MGoBlogerati, in the spirit of tailgating 29 days from now, what's your favorite morning adult beverage?
Evidently I'm bored this morning before Profit so he should consider his thunder stolen like Seattle
What's everyone doing on this day before a long weekend? It's gorgeous here in Chicago, 70-80 and sunny. Staying at the desk is going to be rough today, as is the 9 miles I've got to do between tonight and tomorrow to train for a half marathon. Anyone have fun vacation plans? Or have today off so the rest of us can live vicariously though you?
EDIT: and thank you to nmumike for the reminder about how this isn't just a long weekend, Memorial Day is important in and of its self. Take some time to remember/thank those who are serving and have served.
[EDIT: Negged to Bolivian for stealing my thunder. Points will return in 10 minutes.]
Some of you enjoyed this thread last Friday so I figured I'd strike it up again today.
I'm not going to do a damn thing for the rest of the day. The majority of my business people are at the Wells Fargo Championshio down here at Quail Hollow (which is a beautiful course, by the way) and I'm stuck here. So I've decided to take a flier for the rest of the day. My plan is to:
1. Do some research on YouTube to become a better Battlefield 3 multiplayer. There is a staggering number of videos and I intend to spend a good 2 hours watching some.
2. The little dude is coming up to the office to monkey around a bit. He loves visiting daddy at work.
3. Probably going to hit up Chick-fil-A for a chocolate milkshake before we head for home.
4. Profit (no pun intended).
Whatcha all up to on your end? Anything exciting?
P.S. I'll be playing some Battlefield 3 late-night tonight (starting at around 1am). if anyone is interested, PSN me and we'll shoot some enemies.
