Well my semester is all but over, and my good friend and research partner successfully defended his dissertation today. One tequila/everclear margarita, a bottle of wine, and something resembling a screwdriver later, I'm proud I typed this sentence.

Wow! Tequila and Everclear. 190 proof (I remember that from my high school days, courtesy of my friend's parent's bar).

I can only hope that will be me 8 days from now. Sounds great. My good friend is defending on Thursday, but I'll need to head the library for that never-ending last minute research.

The three drink limit there is strictly enforced. It was actually only a proposal defense. We are the only two still standing in our cohort of 10 but we still have a year left to go.

This Special Snowflake I am proctoring a late exam for has now been mouthbreathing for 90 minutes. I am already dreaming of the lovely bottle of imported vodka in the freezer.

I had my last class today and I gave out my take home final. It's due back Friday. It's so simple I was tempted to put a maze or sudoku puzzle on the back...

I am going to attempt to grade papers and watch playoff hockey.  This usually doesn't go well.  I have a delicious red beer on the coffee table.  I can't reach it without putting down my things.  I don't want to move since Big Girl is under my feet.  I rather like that.

I need somebody to come over, hand me my beer when I make a motion and remain completely silent unless a goal is scored.  Any takers?  My couch is very comfortable.

Anybody tried the new Sam Adams spring beer?  I've seen it but haven't gotten it yet.  We're working through some older cheap stuff.  Nothing great, but acceptable quality.



The alpine spring? I really like it.

You winos wine connoisseurs will be so proud of me. I went to a wine tasting even tonight: five or six samples of assorted wine. Mostly white, one rose. I'm afraid the buzz is fading fast and I still have exams to grade.

I'm pretty sure this was my father's intended purpose in procreating.

Sangria part 2.

Made with the raspberry cordial from the holidays (Smarty, did you ever finish yours off?  Maybe you used better vodka than I did--mine wasn't *that* good.)  I have some mangoes, and contemplated mangria, but it sounded pervy.

You must live nearby (relatively speaking)!  Or have we already had this conversation?  I love me some Oberon, though I haven't sampled this summer's batch yet.  It meets with your approval, I take it?

Last graduate seminar class of the year; after discussing progress on projects I suggested we adjourn early so people could finish the projects.  I'll try to get some work done at home, but am almost through my first pint of Boulevard Pale Ale.  So not plastered quite yet...
