35 Years Down

Posted in Life by SM on February 11, 2011

Happy birthday to me. I’m 36. Woo-hoo.

I really don’t want to post anything of substance today. So, I’ll ramble a bit.

The last day of me 35th year on the planet was pretty meh. I sat at my kitchen table all day and floundered trying to write a top-10 blog post for my work blog while putting out fires here and there. I oxidized the crap out of my Big Black Bitter which (for those of you not familiar with brewing) is not good. I somehow managed to piece together a cake disaster after much swearing. You see, my partner was born two years ahead of me and we often celebrate on the day in between our birthdays. Anyway, said celebration resulted in me missing the final tapping of Hopslam in town. Ugh.

It wasn’t all bad, but it was a load of meh. So, I’m glad to see 35 go on its merry way.

That said, I’ll post some things worth your time in the coming weeks. I have big plans. Of course, whenever I say that, it never meets expectations. Either way, keep reading. I’m a year older, but that doesn’t mean that this blog is a year closer to its demise.

2/14 Update: This happened…

    Can you add helium or something to the beer to push out the oxygen? Or maybe you could bottle it and give it to a beer newbie and tell them it’s an import and it’s supposed to taste that way.

    Happy birthday anyway.

      No. I don’t think helium would work. However, giving it to a noob might be the ticket. A brewing friend of mine said not to worry and just drink it. That’s probably what I’ll do.

    Happy birthday!

    Could you make some of Big Black Stew with the beer?

    “Or maybe you could bottle it and give it to a beer newbie and tell them it’s an import and it’s supposed to taste that way.”

    You could easily say that it is a ‘difficult’ beer in homage to Steve Albini.

    I hope you were wearing a diaper when you drank all that hopslam.
