waking up means going out in this snow and cold weather to devastate my body, which, over the last four years, would have been great fun. but now that i'm graduated, i just wonder, like, what's the point, man?
Saturday's "What are you drinking?" and St. Patty's Day thread
This time last year I had puked at least twice and was already on my third wind, loving every second of it. The other issue now is that going to campus to party with students just reminds me that I am no longer a student and back to living with my parents. Damn.
fear, as somewhat your elder, I can tell you that St. Patty's Day continues to be a celebration of beer drinking, it just becomes a calmer, more sedated version of that. Buckets of beer at six o'clock in the morning turns into a good 12 pack of some kind of Irish beer starting around noon while watching some good basketball. It can be with friends or solo, just a good day to have a few, poor a bottle into a tall glass and look at the head while sipping, and just think about the Spring to come shortly. And you don't destroy your body for the next week, just a quick headache the day after and your good to go. Cheers.
Unfortunately, I agreed to rage hard with some old high school buddies so I'm about out the door now. If you don't hear from me for 10-20 years, this happened:
on your rage. Pass the keys to somebody who is not raging.
Just snuck some Bailey's in my coffee. Happy early St. Patrick's to everyone. Go Blue!
Gonna be a long day, so green miller lite for me. Hello hangover Sunday morning
I've got a stomach virus so I'm laying in bed and drinking water all day. Along with frequent trips to the shitter, I'm sure.
My sincerest condolences. I had that happen to me a couple years ago after eating at the now closed @burger. Fuck that place so hard for ruining my fall break.
Thank you sir. I appreciate it. I wish I knew how I contracted this, though. I've only eaten the same as the rest of my family but I'm the only one with symptoms.
I feel for ya. My whole family was in that exact same position last weekend. You just have to wait it out. It's not fun at all.
Ginger Ale, Gatorade, and water were the only things that I could get down.
Best of luck.
One Costco sack of red skin potatoes, 3 heads of cabbage and 8 pounds of corned beef, 1 bottle of Irish Whiskey, 8 pints of Guinness, 6 bottles of Smithwicks, 4 pints of Murphy's Irish Stout, and a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream. Saint Patty's Day weekend, I'm ready for you!
I'm at Le Peep in the West End. Pretty much forgot about St. Patrick's Day with it being 70 and sunny at 9:45am
Ok...but what's for lunch?
Happy St. Urho's Day!
Car bombs and green beer
Left the gym and can finally start drinking. Weirdly, they don't let you enjoy their. I will be finishing the redds apple ale and Busch light that's home in the fridge. Then I will be getting fucked up at bowling on whatever they put in the pitcher when I order miller lite. Might jus drink the whole non-football season away
What ever $300 of booze works out to
Coffee and Deit Coke all day, final step of my board exams monday. Monday night will be a one day late St. Patty's Day.
Going to Myrtle Beach for the Deftones show! Probably will be a steady diet of Budweiser Tall Boys and shots of Jameson!
I love their new album. If I'm not mistaken, Periphery is also touring with them, and their latest album is also stellar.
Not a huge fan of the latest album. Its not bad, but doesn't hold up to previous efforts. That being said, they've been one of my favorite bands since the early 90s, and I can't wait to see them again.
I will make sure we get there early enough to see the openers, on your recommendation.
I can agree to that, although its hard to match those albums since they set the bar so high. At least it's better than their previous 2-3 albums.
I've never seen Periphery live, so I can't promise they'll sound as good as their recorded stuff, but that probably goes without saying for a lot of bands.
LETS GET IT ON!!
Fucking lonely, antisocial message board trolls.
Having fun hanging out and drinking with friends for one day doesn't make you an alcoholic.
sorry- needed the "/s" here I guess But nice psych analysis based on two words.
I'm sorry, I think we got off on the wrong foot. We should get a couple drinks and talk things out.
I'll probably get lampooned for this, but going to the Columbus Crew home opener tonight. So a mixture of whiskey, PBR, and Kraken (via flask hidden in my sock).
If its any consolation, I've been screaming for Meram to get more playing time for 2 years now.
RELEASE THE KRAKEN
Paperboys at the Tractor tomorrow night. Sort of a Celtic band from Vancouver.
Have a couple of these in the garage frig waiting to chase corned beef and soda bread...
Well, I plan to break into the Guinness later, but for now, it's coffee and an impending trip to Meijer to get the necessary fixings for tomorrow's stew. Tonight, I am going to try out a recipe for Chicken Jerusalem that sounded good when someone talked me through it at work. Hopefully, I remembered everything.
My parents are coming by in a bit to take me out for a 30th birthday lunch (birthday is on Monday). So I will probably have a couple beers on them. Then one of my wife's friends is having a housewarming party. Will drink some more there. Then another one of our friends is having a St. Patty's day party later tonight where I will be doing some car bombs and more drinking.
Will attempt to wake up tomorrow for some bloodies on campus and more drinking. I took Monday off from work to recover and chill on my birthday.
Make your presence known!!
Well there is Captain and Amaretto in the freezer, so I guess Captain and Amaretto. There is also some everclear, but I don't think we're quite ready to get on that level. A run to Stricklands for whatever beer is cheap for a lot may be in order later after our judgement gets cloudy.
Get a hold of yourselves! When I read this, it was not even 7:30 am, my time. Granted, that's 10:30 in A2, but jeezus.
I will not apologize for anything!!
I was just still tasting last night's beer...that was my knee-jerk response. And it was in jest...that doesn't come thru in typing.
When I was in undergrad (just typing that makes me feel old) St. Patty's Day started before the sun came up. A weekend St. Patty's Day was a recipie for 24 hours of drinking, 7:30 is nothing.
The nickname for tomorrow is St. Paddy's Day. Paddy is short for Patrick (Padraig in Irish).
Patty is short for Patricia.
Yeah, I read the news report. I just don't care.
Got some studying to do this weekend so:
to start. But we have phenomenal microbrews here, so switching up after downing my duty as a 'person of Irish heritage'.
2 cans Guinness, now into the Jameson. Then St Ambroise Oatmeal Stout (on tap). Tonight going for a local porter then Jameson (hot - it is snowing) to finish the evening. Going to try to find the Michigan hockey on a feed somewhere somehow.
did they really win it?
If ifs and butts were candy and butts...how does the rest of that go?
Maybe it's time we accept that Wisconsin is kind of a good basketball team?
Have Indiana down 7 with 16 to go.
EDIT: Gulp. 7-0 run. Oladipo is amazing. Sorry Trey, but he's gotta be POTY.
Zeller just got owned!
Picked up a 6 pack of Bells Expedition Stout and Goose Island 312 wheat. A nice contrast between the two. The Expedition is one of the most wild stouts I have ever tasted, I may like it better than Founders Breakfast stout.
I have just finished up studying for the last 3 hours and will likely half watch tv and half study for another hour or two until my buddies are free to celebrate St Pattys day.
Annual pre-season scrimmage for the hs lacrosse team I coach and then showing up to the baby shower for my wife. Twins so I am sure tons of stuff to take home.
Very cold and busy day. Will have to open a few beers later tonight.
Where is the UFC open thread?
Sitting down, having a few beers. Watching walking dead, just started watching three weeks ago and down to last three episodes to be caught up.
piloting the drift boat down a twisty, turning west Michigan river. We landed a couple steelhead and a bunch of nice trout - browns and rainbows. Sipped on Woodford and Shiner bocks all day, and I mean all day.Laughed and laughed and laughed some more.
Goddamn, wha a great time. Now a trip to the hot tub to soothe aching back and shoulder muscles with a neat Maker's.
What a great fucking day.
