As predicted…

I didn’t get much done this weekend. It was fun hanging out with my parents, and I even got to finish up my beer tour at Old Chicago Pizza. I earned a really nice hooded sweatshirt.

Last night we ate at The Yardhouse, and there were plenty of good beers there. I ordered the Anderson Valley Wild Turkey Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout. That’s one of my favorites, and I always have at least one when I go there. I was about beered out, so it was mostly to wash down supper. I was feeling adventurous and tried something called vampire tacos. These consist of a small flour tortilla that has been grilled somehow in a blanket of crispy cheese. I have to say they were awesome. If you live near a Yardhouse, you might want to check these out.

After Mom and Dad hit the road it looked as though I might find some reading time. It wasn’t meant to be, because I had a string of interruptions. I managed one chapter, and don’t know if my retention was all that good.

Ultimately, I decided to bag it. My son and I played Borderlands on the X-Box all afternoon. I feel like a slacker, but that’s how it went down.

In bits and pieces, I managed to get some blog things scheduled. I am a guest in a couple of places, and am hosting others here. I think I have a conflict one day, but I’ll deal with that after I figure it all out.

Back to work tomorrow for four ten-hour shifts.

I could have gotten more done. I could have gotten less done too, so I’ll take it and look forward to next weekend.

  1. That does sound like a great beer. Wonder why those are called vampire tacos. Not sure they’re around here.

  2. That beer name goes on forever. Can you say that name after a few beers?

  3. I like to go AWOL occasionally. I always feel guilty, but I’m sure it does me good in the long run. After all, we are in charge, right?

  4. I’d have to try vampire tacos based on the name alone.

  5. I am pretty much exclusively a wine-drinker, but I would try an Anderson Valley Wild Turkey Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout just for fun.

  7. There’s nothing wrong with taking a break, especially when you work a full-time job.


  8. It sounds like you had a lot of fun goofing off. I love those breaks and they are well deserved. I think it re-enrgizes us for the next round of nose-to-the-grindstone. I’m late in chiming in because I was doing the latter. Now with a deadline behind me, I’m going to celebrate with some goofing off myself. Now to find a good microbrew….
