Bombed in

If I were drinking more this evening, that would be even more true, but I am only cracking open my third now. UFO White if you are wondering.

Anyway, the title is pretty easy to figure out… or actually, not. You see, I am bombing this one in last minute so that the month doesn’t go by without something being published in this space. This is much the same as what happened last July. In fact, much of what I was going to write was the same kind of crap I wrote last year. I just don’t have time before midnight to do it. Nor do I really have the desire right now. In fact, I haven’t all month. (As you can see.)

My idea in the previous post was to do half-year reviews and such this month. Well, work and… um, well, work got in the way for most of the month. I thought that being on vacation this week might help motivate me but I really pissed away the week doing almost nothing. I made a poor choice about when to spend time down the Cape and the weather... Continue reading »

Three se7ens

Not sure why I feel compelled to post something today. I mean, it is cool that today is 07.07.07 and all, but does that mean I need to acknowledge that with a post?

This is a post, so I guess so, but how to acknowledge it exactly? I mean, I can’t just post this and be on my way, can I?

I suppose I could, but I did have one little idea. I thought, maybe since there are three sevens, I’d do three lists of seven. And, since it is Summer, maybe have one list be of things I have enjoyed so far, another of things I have not and finally, the third of things I am looking forward to over the rest of the Summer.

Yeah, that works and it gives me a chance to fill in some blanks since I haven’t posted much lately. Of course, it hasn’t been officially Summer for but three weeks, but we all know we started thinking it was way earlier than what the solstice tells us, right?

Anyway, here goes nothing:

Seven up

Mmm… beer

So, I was catching up on my Hotmail, aka my spam box, and Harpoon shared the fact they have produced their first new, year-round beer in nine years. It’s Harpoon Brown Session Ale.

The web page shares the same basic info as the e-mail does, but the e-mail included an explanation of exactly what the heck a Session Ale is, so here you go:

What is a “Session” beer?: According to the BeerAdvocate.com – “any beer that contains no higher than 5 percent ABV (alcohol by volume), featuring a balance between malt and hop characters (ingredients) and, typically, a clean finish – a combination of which creates a beer with high drinkability. The purpose of a session beer is to allow a beer drinker to have multiple beers, within a reasonable time period or session, without overwhelming the senses or reaching inappropriate levels of intoxication. (Yes, you can drink and enjoy beer without getting drunk.)”

Since their link to the Beer... Continue reading »
