Bell's Oberon Ale. Ahhhhh. 

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?

If you're forming a Bell's fan club, I will join. I heart Oberon (though, perhaps because I am a big boozo, I sort of prefer Two-Hearted). One of the great joys of moving to VAPville was discovering that I had moved back into Bell's distribution territory.

Despite all that I am just having a glass of wine.

It may just be bourbon in the garden today, and making the best of things.

The Oberon indeed meets with my approval. I only discovered it a couple summers ago. Better late than never, I suppose.

I'm having one of those nights when my finger has become stuck in a beer bottle and will not dislodge.

In the bottle? I hope you have one in the other hand that isn't blocked up, at least!

I have now dislodged it; all is well!

This happens to me all the time.  When I am drunk I tend to thrust my middle finger in there as far as it will go.  When I attempt to remove it, it gets stuck tight at the knuckle.

Someone on another thread just referred to Levon Helm as a "Pop Musician".

I need a drink.

I am prone to do this as well. Thankfully I don't do anything any dumber while drunk.

(Ok, that latter was a fib.)

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.

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

Scampster, trained to fetch a beer from the basement fridge and pour it into a frosty mug with little head since age 7, lest her dad miss one bit of the Canadiens game.



Hey, Scampster is my cousin!  My dad taught me to pour one from his draft system into a frosty mug with just the right amount of foam when I was old enough to reach the tap (~age 5 or 6, I think - it was before we moved, and I was 7 when we moved).  That way he didn't have to get up from watching the Steelers/Penguins/Pirates.


I'm pondering whether to start with the red wine or the white wine tonight.   I've got an open bottle of each after cooking a couple wine-based recipes this week.

Beer, so far.  I may make some sangria or margaritas (though the weather is still cool and rainy and I'm not sure if I have the right stuff to make margaritas).

Juleps? I couldn't copy/paste your recipe (stupid mobile Facebook) and a friend who saw that I commented on it was pestering me for it. I had to take a picture of the iPad screen and text him the screenshot so he could satisfy his jones.

Nope, although I did make those a few years back and they were delicious. Last night i was drinking rum and gingers. Many of them.

Then, one of our grad students tried to start a bar fight with my husband, so we left.

Wow. Grade him down.

I'm having sangria. (Yes, yes, I know.)
