Drink UP!

Why...yes, as a matter of fact, I WILL need roughly the amount of a small keg of booze this afternoon. It's been a very, very stressful week. And due to several readers referencing Stella in the comments of earlier posts, I've got Stella on the brain. Looks like that'll have to be the rocktail du jour.

Ever have one of those weeks where a whole bunch of little tiny annoyances add up to ONE MAJOR PERSECUTION COMPLEX? Like the whole world's 'ginst ya? Hey, I'm not whining, I'll get over it, but JESUS CHRIST ON A MOTORBIKE AND MARY IN A SIDECAR it's been a shitty one.

Without going into too much agonizing detail, UPS sucks. You know what brown can do for me? I'll fucking tell you. Deliver the goddamn package, you assclowns. That's pretty much all I ask. And yet...this package I was supposed to get Tuesday? NOT FUCKING HERE. What can brown do for you, indeed. Brown can have a complaint system that does not require me to know the street address of the shipping facility, and the name, birthdate, and blood type of the warehouse worker who packed and shipped my stuff. Brown can tell me something useful in the tracking system, other than that there's nothing they can do for me. Brown can fuck off and die of their own stinking, mind-boggling incompetence, the cretinous fucking morons.

Wow. Suddenly I'm overcome with a feeling of peace. THAT was cathartic.

Superbowl? Who cares? I smell baseball on the wind. Spring training. Pitchers and catchers reporting soon. BRING IT.

Happy weekend. I'm off to get pished.

Yes, screw football, bring on the Baseball! (I am a sport monogamist.)

Happy Friday!

Looks like some newfangled kind of keg.

The picture am for the "PerfectDraft" beer dispensing system. Me think it am only sold in Belgium, Germany & The Netherlands. It am for tapping really small kegs that hold like about 6L of beer. Or about 3 glasses for me.

Me am tossing back shot of Jager for you and spring training Andraste!

Oh, and me found Jaffa Cakes. Me talk all about in FMC's comments.

Aah, who wouldn't?! I'm planning on getting good and drinky today. Football can kiss my arse, but the commercials are usually worth the stuff in between.

On the post, UPS is such a bastard about lost packages -- I've had that experience too... you can give them all the info: tracking number, weight, when it was picked up and by whom, and they still have the nerve to say, "We have no idea where it is, but it's not really our fault, see..." The joys of logistics...

Stella Artois is fucking piss. It's got a fancy Belgian name so people think it's classy, but it's cheap rotgut. As FMC said, it's known as Wife Beater over here for a very good reason. It tastes like piss, or shit, and it's not worth it. Any hard drinker worth his or her salt wouldn't touch it with a bargepole.

FE - awww shaddaaaaap! Beer is beer, and there's a flavor for every mood. AS it happens my Friday started out with a Guinness, then moved onto pitchers of cheap lager, rounding things out with a nightcap of Cider Jack. It's all good.

In fact, my Superbowl Sunday started out with Boddington's (which I call "vanilla Guinness") and has once again come round to cider, just as a palate cleanser.

Fucking Pittsburgh. Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck...burp.

G'night everybody!
