My Poor Baby/No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

April 24, 2015

You know what you are seeing here???  Of course you don’t, because the pics suck…

My Jeep Wrangler, my baby, my love and she is up on a tow truck getting hauled away as if no one loves her. The pictures aren’t good because they are covered in sadness.  I’m gonna make this long story very short.  Well..honestly…because it sucks and I don’t want to make you sit through a crappy story.

We will start with I was “bored” yesterday afternoon.  Oh, I had a million things to do, study, clean the house, pack, write on this blog, organize tax receipts, the list goes on and on but I didn’t want to do any of them and instead posted on Facebook, “Im bored”.  A young woman I sorta mentor/hang with every now and then contacted me and said she was bored too.  So…I picked her up and we went to Royal Oak to look for a “good” time.  We hit two pubs, Ale Mary’s and then O’Tooles for food, all the while her talking and me hearing about what she has been up to and how she is keeping herself busy (Some stuff I wish I hadn’t heard but I digress…young people…smdh).   After we ate, we headed back north to drop her off at a friends house.  Her friend lived in the hood…no problem…I’m just gonna drop her off and go home.  Right?  She jumps out and as I put my Jeep in reverse, she stops…EVERYTHING STOPS!  She doesn’t move.  Cue Price is Right lose music.

I Love A Good Peep Show

April 20, 2015

Who doesn’t?

Each sensuously draped in bright colors.  Sometimes they are dripping in chocolate. Squeezing and melding themselves perfectly together in a confined space.

I’m not talking about erotic performers, you pervert.   I’m talking about Peeps!  

(You’re so dirty…)

And The Yeast Shall Rise Again!!!

April 20, 2015

So…I finally made beer bread at home.  I made beer cheese bread at my sister’s house over the Easter weekend and it turned out great.

2015-04-04 13.30.07

But I wanted to make sure it wasn’t a fluke…soooo…I made it again today.  I’m also making baked potatoes, St Louis-style ribs and flash fried Brussel sprouts for dinner, but I digress.  I found and compared a few random recipes on the internet and finally settled with putting this together.  I took a little from here and a little from there.  Not what you should do when you are baking but I don’t care.  I’m not trying to be original here.

A few of the recipes said use self-rising flour.  I’m gonna be Judgey McJudgey-pants and say no self respecting cook has self-rising flour but that’s only because I don’t have any.  I actually have no moral judgement against self-rising flour.

Throughout this process I was drinking Hopslam and Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA, so let’s hope this turns out edible.

I Hate People…Especially Bad Neighbors.

April 11, 2015

What is wrong with people. This question is totally rhetorical because I know exactly what is wrong with people.  People are disappointing.

Period.

So what’s the latest drama in my life? For those of you that are just joining in and didn’t get to hear about the awful mean old guy/neighbor who tried to sue me for $25,000 over a weed tree…you’re lucky.  The whole situation sucked.  Summary:  We cut down a weed tree thats base was 46% on our property but leaning 100% on our garage. He didn’t like it or us and said “I don’t like you people moving into the neighborhood ruining stuff”.  Sued us.  He got almost nothing.  End of story.

So…new drama? Some buttercup is dumping used seed/make shift kitty litter in my backyard. You can’t dump refuse on someone’s manicured/landscaped yard and think no one is going to notice. IT STANDS OUT!

Didn’t I Say I was Irish?

April 8, 2015

I get it…it’s April and I’m FINALLY posting about St Patricks Day.

HEY!!!  Get off my back.  Do I look like Im getting paid for this?

(HINT HINT: To anyone who wants to pay me for this…)

I have been heading to St. Patricks Day at Kuhnhenn’s Brewery for about 7 years.  I remember my very first time like it was yesterday.  I walked in alone around 8am drawn in by the amazing beer list advertised in the newspaper and the only patrons in there were me and two guys from GM…there to drink before work.  I was young, thin, friendly and full of life and when I find those pictures I’m adding them to this blog!  Every year, the number of people that show up for the fun has increased tenfold and now it is so packed it is almost no fun…unless you get there super early. Which I do.

IPA’s. I Like My Men Like I Like My Beer. I Think.

Siren Of Stout

 

I have been pretty adamant my whole beer drinking life that IPA’s suck and stouts are king but lately I have tasted some amazing beauties that have totally changed my mind altogether….starting with ‘Hopslam’. When I cracked that bottle open and took a drink, I thought I had died and gone to hop honey heaven.  It was soooo delicious and beautifully balanced, I immediately drank two more and then RAN to the nearest store (1 hour away) to find the last two 6 packs in the state.  Yes…I did!  There is no shame in my game. Unfortunately those 12 bottles were gone in about 2 weeks.  The other people living in my household loved it as well.
