It's a slow day on the board and an even slower day at work,so does anyone have big plans for the weekend/State game on Sunday?
What are you drinking?
What do you wish you were drinking?
I'm drinking Diet Coke.
I wish I was drinking Mountain Dew.
Is that the tranny from 'Always Sunny'?
will be drinking Guinness later. Slow day at work indeed...
Last weekend I got engaged in Ann Arbor, tomorrow I'm heading to Germany for work for the week.... so I'll be listening to the game via mgoblue.com.
Had a couple of Goose Island Green Lines last night, they were tasty.
where in Germany are you going?
I wish I was drinking Oberon and Landshark in July.
Was planning on watching Tiger and Rory go toe to toe again at the Honda this weekend. That is until Rory withdrew after going +7 through 8 holes(!) on day 2. Later released a statement that he was suffering from.......... a sore tooth? His game is a hot mess right now. He should have asked David Duval about the Nike curse. It is a real thing.
you can't go wishing your life away. I wish it was July 20 years ago.
Ahh.. the Arnold. I've bartended in Columbus for 8 years and Arnold weekend in Columbus is to any other weekend in Columbus as any other weekend in Columbus is to Ann Arbor on a Monday afternoon. The 2% on that weekend become the 98%. I doubt I'd take my wife anywhere in public for a week, unless I want to get my ass kicked being a smart ass to some dude who works out as many times a day as I shit. Love Joe Rogan, but he's going to be a meatball magnet this weekend. Good luck to you, sir.
The big plan for this weekend is, unfortunately, to sit down and actually do my taxes, or at least start them. I may also continue the ongoing mission of recaulking in some rooms and around some windows as we found a few minor drafts the other day - never again do I buy a 1960s ranch home. This is especially true when the "contractor" that owned the house before me nailed curtains to the walls and left me all the old asbestos tiles. I would not recommend this man for your remodeling needs.
The biggest event on the calendar is in fact the game on Sunday. It is the only thing on the list which I am certain to follow from start to finish.
As for drinking, gone are the days when you could walk into a supervisor's office and be offered a quick drop of something. My father has many such back-in-the-day stories from the floor of Detroit Diesel, however. I wish I could crack open a Guinness right now, but the Diet Coke and Asiago Roast Beef sandwich from Panera will have to do until 4 PM or so.
Muse Concert tomorrow - then kid time Sunday sharing the Game with my 7-year old son who is a diehard UM fan too. :)
I'll be at Muse and the game...both with my 11 year old son. I'll be sure to keep an eye out for you...
A lot of beer tonight.
GO BLUE BEAT STATE
Go Spring Break as well.
I'm drinking Peach Tea Mio and writing a new logon script for my work PC's. Later I will be drinking Peach Mango Mio and I will not be writing logon scripts.
An IT guy that doesn't get along with the majority of people he meets??? Now I've seen EVERYTHING! (I'm a Cloverleaf Systems Analyst myself)
with cloverleaf, I',m, ASSuiming its some kind of Health Care database type thing?
Healthcare interface system that uses HL7 (among other standards) to pass patient data between different systems. The cool thing is that I live in Columbus, but HL7 is based out of none other than Ann Arbor, Michigan. So I still feel like I'm tied in up there, in some abstract sense.
pos to make it a POSBANG; so let's all take one for the team and bang the pos out of each other.
Drinking water, which pairs quite nicely with a bland day at at the office. I wish I was drinking something with Captain with it, but that will have to wait until 430 or so. Dinner with friends tomorrow, a haircut, and the game on Sunday pretty much encompasses my weekend.
Just drinking water for now, but I'm stopping by Alesmith on the way home to get a couple growlers filled. Speedway Stout and a yet-to-be-decided beer.
Birthday dinner for the GF tonight, followed tomorrow by a potential tour of the part of a specific house named after a color that is named after a direction with appendages.
of time to get!
I still don't get it.
Direction: West (or East)
Specific House: The _______ House
/As an engineer I read engineer
Are a Champion of the West (Wing) (!)
I'm an engineer. The organization of words and even possibly the letters was most likely sub-par.
I was expecting something much more dirty.
Still drinking my tears.
I'm going to be drinking Jameson; I wish I was drinking more Jameson.
Drinking water right now, but later I'll be drinking some Bud Black Crown. Haven't decided if I like it yet, so I'm going to keep testing it.
Sunday afternoon was going to be blocked off for the big game, but had an unexpected change of plans. Got a free ticket to the Honda Classic on Sunday, so I'll be doing that instead.
Not to be a dick, but if you want to drink a good beer, drink a good beer, not some slight upgrade to Bud.
All beer is good.
I'm not even going to try to argue with that.
I just question why pay more for Black Crown when you can get a 6 pack of Fat Tire or something for essentially the same price.
I love Fat Tire. I also love Bud, and Bud Select, and Shock Top. And Guiness. And Labatts. And lots of other imports. Black Crown is a good beer, high alcohol content and some good character to it. If its the same price, I say they're very comparable. I just think Bud and its products get a bad rep because people fancy themselves as beer snobs who are above drinking it because its massed produced. Its very good for what it offers, an American style lager. It doesn't pretend to be something it isn't.
/off soap box
All beer is good to me!
Sorry, I'm not trying to rag on people's beer taste. Everyone has their own preferences. It's just that personally, I don't understand the appeal of middle of the road beers. If I'm looking to consume en masse, good ole' Natty Light will do the trick. If I'm looking to enjoy the beer, then there are plenty of great craft brews I can find for ~$8 a six pack.
but for me, the variation of my beer tastes is depending on my mood and what the scene is. Like I said, a good ol' American style ale with a burger does the trick. For me, a cold Bud is an event, best enjoyed with a glass and some Stevie Ray Vaughn playing. I like craft beers to have one or two, that's fine. I guess it just depends on where I am and what I'm doing. If I'm drinking for effect, then Bud Select is my choice. Higher alchohol content and less calories than Bud Light, believe it or not. At 44 yrs old, I have to stay aware of such things.
I understand where you're coming from. I enjoy hoppier beers like Sierra Nevada pale ale. I enjoy Flat Tire. But I'm also going to be doing some cooking with the beer, and my conscience felt better using Black Crown.
Plus it was on sale...
"Plus it was on sale..."
And now it all makes sense!
When I can go to my local Kroger and pick up 6 bottles of Fat Tire for $1 each PLEASE make sure that information is passed along immediately.
I was at the St Louis brewery a couple weeks ago and tried some of the Black Crown straight from the source, and it was pretty good. Stronger than the average AB product, hoppier. I like it. The new Shock Top apple wheat is really good, too. Not a cider, its a wheat beer with some great flavor.
How was the brewery tour there? I've never been on a big brewer's tour. I've been blessed to live in Milwaukee for some time and do craft brewery tours there. Never made it to Miller though. My favorite is the Milwaukee Brewing Company. $7 gets you a tour, a pint glass, and all the beer you can drink! And it's really good beer too!
and I've done all of them. The free tour is nice, only an hour and you get two free beers at the end. The beer master tour ($25) is 2.5 hrs long, you get to see a lot more of the brewery and its inner workings and you get to taste some beer straight from the finishing tanks. It is glorious. They also allow you to "sample" some beers before and after the tour which ends up being a bit more than you would get from the free tour. They also have a beer tasting school, 45 min ($10) and it talks more in depth of how the beer is made, the ingredients, the process, what type of glass is better with what types of beer, food pairings, etc. Informative and you get a couple freebies at the end, too.
