This is officially my last post here. I may start blogging again in the future, if I do, I will probably start over from scratch. I plan to leave this blog intact for the time being, but I will likely take it down at some point. I have no plans to give up this site, if for no other reason than to continue the Companions of Xarth wiki and maintain my current email address. I visited my Facebook account for the first time in weeks and I shaved my friends list down to 30, I may even go tighter than that. However, if you are family or made some reasonable effort to stay in contact with me, I will not unfriend you. I will start posting my random meanderings there. So there you have it, after 28 months, thanks for reading, it was fun.

Okay, I am going to admit defeat here. I simply do not have the bandwidth anymore to post here on anything remotely resembling regularity. In the next day or two I am going to decide if I just want t take a break for the summer or if I need to just shut it down and shift what little blogging I do back to Facebook. Right now, I am leaning towards the latter rather than the former.
The girl behind the counter at Chick-fil-A gave me the senior discount. A couple of years ago this might have annoyed me, today, my only thought was Woo-Hoo 10% discount, life is good.
And ladies, please do not forget it is Steak and BJ day.
It is leap year and today is the bonus day we get once every four years. You’d think they would make this an automatic day off for everyone, but no, our corporate overlords can’t allow us to have too much fun. Sigh!
I believe this is proof positive that Farts are in fact very funny, in spite of what mainstream culture tries to force on us as “Appropriate”.
Dinosaurs I am a bit meh on, but bikini babes will always draw me to a website.
So my second batch of beer was officially ready today, The first this is I am grateful I went for the smaller bottles this time, those huge 32 oz bottles are sometimes a bit much. Second, this beer has a much heavier taste than my first batch. Of course that is to be expected, the first batch was a light pale beer made more or less exactly the way the instructions told me to. The second batch is a dark Oktoberfest beer and I used honey instead of sugar to give it a heavier more earthy flavor. I am very pleased with the results. Unfortunately, I am going to have to hold off on making more beer for a while, I have a refrigerator full of it and I don’t drink beer all that fast.
Hot on the tail of the suck that was the Star Trek:TOS/Legion of Superheroes Comic book cross over, the same company is getting set to do a Star Trek:TNG/Dr Who cross over.
Please!, for the love of god, STOP. This is going be bad, REALLY REALLY BAD. I implore you IDW please don’t do it. I know you think this is going to make you millions and the writer who is vomiting this garbage out thinks he is going to get a movie deal, but neither of those things are going to happen, because this idea SUCKS! The Star Trek:TOS/Legion of Superheroes cross over would have been considered bad even if you had posted it to a fanfic site instead of convincing DC to let you use their intellectual property.
Stop, Just Stop.
So here is my question. How big of a douche bag does one have to be to demand to see a manager of the restaurant before you have even been seated? Seriously, the wait time was exactly ZERO, it was a family restaurant on a busy Friday night, so there were some noisy kids, but frankly, there was nothing obvious to complain about. As far as I can tell, this guy was either an asshole or could see the future. Either way, I wish he would have went to a different place.
My second batch of beer went into the refrigerator yesterday to start the cold lagering process. This process will take another 2 weeks. PezWitch stole one of the bottles before it went into the frig to use in her new sourdough starter. I am very much looking forward to this batch, I hope it is as good as I think it is going to be. If it is decent, it will probably be my last for a while, as I still have more than half of my first batch left and I want to clear out everything before I start on #3.
