Whitsun with fresh lemon and lime
OT - What are you doing tonight?
So, what is everyone up to tonight? Any fun plans? If you are drinking something, what are you drinking?
I have been studying this evening, now I'm taking a break to watch the Tigers and the NBC Wrestlemania special (yeah, I enjoy the art of pro wrestling, don't judge me). I think after I'm done tonight, I will open up a bottle of Stone W00tstout.
Most importantly the first football game is 28 days away!!!! I can't wait!
My wife and I are having a fire in the firepit.
Very interesting. I would love this, and realistically with the talk of the super division, I can see it for the smaller schools grabbing some revenue.
Can you imagine some if the upsets that would happen? A good Mac team at the end of their season taking on a team that just started and might not have all the rust worked out.. It would make for some very interesting stories. I really enjoy this idea, good post.
Original post was deleted. It was mentioning football right now and how cool it would be if MAC and non Big 5 conference teams were playing right now. On topic, a bonfire would be quite enjoyable after such a beautiful day in Michigan.
Well, after getting to visit the top of the WTC, and take in the views and the experience... I'm just getting home now and about to make empanadas with the girlfriend. Beer of choice: one Leffe Brune left, then switching to Negra Modelo. Queue "Oh what a night"!
need to catch up before it resumes!
Netflix just posted the first half of the new season, so i will be catching up on my BB after the Tigers finish off the Sox.
I have already seen those 8 episodes of season 5 but I was wondering when it would get put up on netflix. I'll likely watch the 8 episodes again starting tomorrow before next week Sunday to get me more pumped.

Citra Pale Ale by Oddside Ales. Love this brew.
stereo is on, beer is flowing and hot dogs are grilling.
Edit: Might have overstated my hot dog situation. I'm in the apartment living phase of my life and have no grill. I have a George Forman, a stove, oven and most standard pots/pans, basic cooking necessities and plenty of seasonings. Anyone have any tips for making a good hot dog in an apartment?
Nu-Wave oven, as seen on tv. Go google the silly thing - there are fans across the universe. I can make roasted asparagus in about 5 minutes with it. Hot dogs come out with grill marks. Not a true substitute for a grill, don't misunderstand, but it does an amazing job with a lot of food. It is the only way I cook bacon now. There is still clean-up, but it is all contained inside.
but I lack a Nu-Wave oven, thus limiting the utility of your response. Seriously though I'll keep a look out for one at a decent price.
I haven't done dogs, but plenty of brats... It works great to brown them in a frypan for 5 mins (flipping frequently) in a dime size blob of oil, then simmering in ~1/4 cup of water for 12 minutes (water nigh boils away. Covered for both steps.
Me and the fam are at the Drive-In getting ready to watch The Wolverine and Grown Ups 2
working a 12 hour overnight... only 9 1/2 more to go!
I'm at the hospital chillin' in a room till the next "activity period" at 11pm for my 1 day old daughter in the NICU.
Congrats on the baby
max gratz. enjoy the ride. i have an 11 month old and a 12 year old and every day is tremendous.
this blunts for you!
Drinking: Sam Adams Octoberfest. I know not how or why it is here, but I do know that I am not mad about it.
Doing: Catching some of the ESPN 30 for 30s on Netflix that I have been meaning to watch (Alabama/Auburn rivalry, Bo Jackson, Gretzky, etc.).
Watching the Tigers about to get their 7th straight win and then probably watch an episode of The Newsroom on my On-Demand. Just got into that show this past week and love it.
Burning three Ohio State t-shirts that my next door neighbor has/had. He and his wife don't follow any kind of sports, college or pros. His wife got him the three t- shirts in Ohio at a rest stop when they were on there way to visit family in Georgia. I have pics but don't know how to post. I can send them to someone but not until tomorrow morning.
Seems like a pretty aggressive move (re: burning)
As for myself, I am working on some Blue Moon as the Tigers game winds down here. Later on tonight, I will get ready for the trip to Fankenmuth tomorrow - just an overnight thing, but the kids are excited to got to the Bavarian Inn again. If anyone needs MGoAssistance, I will be at the bar in the Ratskeller trying to convince the staff that I am good for the beers.
While the blog was down today, we took the kids to the Detroit Zoo and ended up getting about 100 photos of penguins, so I suppose that is somehow useful. My daughter wanted to get in and test the underwater camera that we bought her, so we had to have the normal "being in the same tank with flightless birds is a bad idea" talk that most parents undoubtedly have at the zoo.
Not to bring the days events into question, but under what circumstances are 100 photos of penguins useful? Kids are Crosby fans? Running a National Geographic knockoff? Pulitzer material? Inquiring minds must know.
I look around for the door where she can go swimming with them. Learning how to socialize is very important!
After the sparkling MGOREVIEW we got I just had to check it out...
Who was the poster back in the day with this for an avatar? That one always slayed me.
At the four seasons. Carib flowing well. Just finished dinner on the beach. First time here and its fucking paradise. Love the West Indies
Wait...I misunderstood the question.
Hangin' at the Hilton, watching the kids swim and reading HTTV. Kudos to all the contributors. Wind in your hair, right on the money! Go Blue!
Love Ocean City, MD!! I live in Virginia Beach now and it has been a few years since I have made that detour on my way to Atlantic City. Is Seacrets still there?
It is. Lots of fun. Had dinner @ Higgins Crab House tonight, stuffed.
good times with family and friends. was drinking caymus 2010 special select and vieve cliquot
Turkey already done, now on to the beef brisket. Cigar City Florida Cracker (Belgian- style White Ale) while the oil does its work.
In Colorado on vacation and feeling like a Colorado-ian (?) drinking some Fat Tire.

Have to start them before they are toddlers (like at 6 months) or it's a nightmare. Ours has slept through the night since he was about 7 or 8 months. It's all about the bed time.
Will not sleep through the night!!! Wales up at least 3 maybe 4 times... It sucks
I recommend picking up a copy of the book "Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child". It was life changing (for him and us).
I was hoping you would post a comment! Plan on buying tonight
Glad to help. That's a book I am glad to give a recommendation about any time, anywhere. Seriously life changing. Went from (at 6 months) waking up several times a night with (maybe) a fifteen minute nap during the day (despite our best efforts at two hour long naps) to sleeping all the way through the night with two one hour plus naps during the day WITHIN TWO DAYS. It really works. You just have to commit to doing exactly what the book says to do (which really isn't that hard to do).
Does the book help with month olds?!?!
Unfortunately, no method will. From everything I've ever read, there isn't much you can do until about six months. It has to do with sleep patterns being feeding driven up until that point.
But at 2.5 years. Do this at 6 months. You will be much happier.
Went to Lolla yesterday with my girlfriend, going out in Chicago tonight! Question: is mgoblog.com working for anyone? I can access the website through the forums, but if I go to www.mgoblog.com it goes to a white page that says "welcome to nginx"
NGINX is our new commit
Delete your browsing history for however long the error has happened. It should work.
Gonna put the twins to bed in the next hour. Gonna get the grill ready for some nice steaks. All while drinking some Goode Island 312. Sun is about to set here in Vegas, gonna be hanging out in the backyard!
Decided to watch Top Gun on Netflix. Can't go wrong with a Bruckheimer movie blasting on tv.
Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't Top Gun a Tony Scott film? (RIP)
ack, you are right. Bruckheimer just produced and financed the film.
That they do actually qualify as a distinct entity in film genre/styles, so you're both right.
Norris hot springs, sipping a Salmon Fly Honey Rye. After a great day at Wade Lake. Montana summer is tough to beat. All eight weeks of it.
Would this dolt be you?
On call all weekend for my local Level 1 Trauma center = really needing to drink and not being allowed to. Kinda sucks.
citizens of South Carolina?
Well I'm getting bitch-slapped by MGoCommunity for asking a stupid question. To lift my spirits I started watching Curb Your Enthusiasm over again from the start. It's working.
Look at it this way, with the old point system it would be way worse.
Trying a Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA. Solid but not great is the verdict.
With a makers on the rocks. Pricey meat but very good
About to go to sleep. My lucky ass gets to work at 6
Goin to bed and hopefully I sleep good, slept terrible last 2 nights and I worked 14 hours today and have to be back up in 6 hours.
Just got out of the Postal Service stage. Headed home to crash until tomorrow.
was awesome. Great day at Lolla!
It's mah burfday!!! Some Big Bob's pizza and Founder's Red's Rye with a bunch of relatives was exactly what I needed. Perfect evening.
Not positive what you're referring to, but probably not. Sitting home alone and sleepy at the moment, probably going to bed pretty quick here...
Then I guessed right and my comment stands. Unless something goes horribly wrong for me tonight, that will not be happening. Also, now that it's 12:05, my birthday has passed.
Cranking out some Silvertide, Sevendust and Endeverafter (to name a few)
Shared a four pack of Heady Topper with friends. Was a good night.
How does one share a 4-pack?
Saw The Wolverine
Celebrating my birthday with friends and a half barrel of Fat Tire in the kegerator. Bonfire by the water and healthy portions of the world's best chocolate cake. This gets chalked up in the 'W' column.
I like the cut of your jib
I took my six year-old daughter to a dinner theater and we watched Footloose with Kevin Bacon and John Lithgow. My wife thought our daughter would hate the movie and be bored, but she loved it. Woo!
Is there any other Footloose worth watching?
now drinking cheap beer and reminiscing about the 1990s like a proper old codger.
Damn right. 4 weeks til game day, 27 days I guess.
I'm sure this has been said multiple times, but I believe drinking heavily is the correct answer.
At the pool currently. Will probably be watching some golf, followed by the Hall of Fame Game, and then... SHARK WEEK 2013!!!
About to wrap my pork shoulders (at hour #5), and make myself another margarita.
