drat and other wimpy words

okay so last night i went out for a beer and then dinner with a friend of mine. i had a beer before i left my house, three pints and a pound of wings. oh and some of the best sweet potato fries i’ve ever had (jalopeno mayo!)

considering i got to the pub at 5:30 and home at ten you can see i had one of the rockingest friday nights ever. shut up i was happy to go to bed early, i’m not sleeping enough this summer. no it isn’t stress, it’s fun and festivals and camping on the ground.

but here’s the thing, that three pints of beer killed me!

i came home and tried to blog and didn’t like any of the three posts that i started and i felt kinda funny and strange and it took me a while to figure out. i’m hoping my new found cheap drunkenness is only a byproduct of lack of sleep and not enough food because i really don’t want to give up beer.

i mean i really don’t.

beer is.. beer is goooooood.


pv it’s okay, suddenly i hear buffy from ‘beer bad’ too.


i love beer, i love beer the way some people love wine (though i quite like wine as well) and i don’t want to have to give it up.  i’ve already had to give up okanagan extra apple cider (soooooooooooooooooo goooooooooooood!) because it gives me a hangover before i’ve finished the first bottle but i just blamed sugar.

please let it not be cause i’m all like old and stuff now!

don’t want to give up beer!


i met a man the other day who said, with no trace of irony whatsoever “yeah so i started an investment bank”

you know, the way i say ‘yeah so i went to a festival’

so i started a bank??? how do you say that casually?

[yes i know, the same way i say ‘yeah i help repair backs with disk herniations’ but still! {always so much more impressive if it isn’t your own field huh?}]



summer is nearly over! i’m not nearly brown enough and i haven’t been to enough festivals and and and!

ack how did this happen?


okay okay, it’s been a truly spectacular summer… right down to the personally transformative experiences.

and now i’m off to a camping party in keady…

see you later!


hey nat’s comment is too funny so here’s what i want in the comments…

something like nat’s comment “yeah so i….”

some examples “yeah so i walked on the moon” or “yeah so i designed and built a nuclear powered rocket ship in my garage” or whatever….

(other comments welcome too of course ;>)



  1. Yeah, so I bought an island…

    ROTFL. People are funny.

  6. errrr….yeah, so I shouldn’t try to make a comment after 12 hours on a plane. Sorry. I would have blamed my computer but I’m really just a goof.

  7. terry: i know! i had the secret to perpetual motion on the tip of my finger and my lab blew up!

    damm volatile experiments!

    scott: no fair, you used that one already!

    personally i think being a goof is far more fun than blaming a computer… hope your flight didn’t suck at least?

  8. Yeah so I was making out with a chick named Ludmilla in the back of a dive bar in Kiev while this band that didn’t know English was trying to play ‘Hotel California…’

    True story.

    I love beer too. American microbrewery beer, Austrailian oil can beer, Bavarian berry beer…but my absolute favoritest beer of all time is Keiths.

  9. yeah so i ran away with the carnival

    true story

    pirate: i really do hope that story is true :)

    i’m a big fan of a little brewery in grand rapids called founders. especially their dirty bastard and their breakfast (oatmeal chocolate stout) … so american microbrew is okay with me. i prefer keiths red…

  10. The beer here in Slovakia is ridicoulusly good, there is one called Zlaty Bazant and about 20 others to choose from. Im in the town where “Hostel” (Bratislava) was filmed before I fly onto Stockholm today (another good beer town). Heres hoping our helicopter pilot doesnt show up drunk in Sweden (true story last year)……..

  11. yeah, so I won the Pulitzer Prize for Blogging …

  12. scott: having not yet been to slovakia i cannot comment on the beer so i guess i’ll take your word on it. what’s your favourite? ridiculously good? *rewrites order of imaginary travel plans to bump slovakia higher on the list… in the summer*

    zlaty bazant? sounds like something out of hitchikers… [i hope your pilot doesn’t show up drunk too… that would be… daunting at best]

    dzer: nice!!

    yeah so i ran for dictator of the world and i won!

  13. yeah, so i fell out of a tree the other day, and i didn’t die because i grew wings and flew away. it was sweet.

  14. cherub: yeah that sounds sweet!

    yeah so i climbed a 5.14d and it was easy

  15. yeah so see, i would have climbed the 5.14, but i flew up it instead.

  16. cherub: i’m not sure you’re allowed to fly twice and call it two impossible things… isn’t it still the same impossible thing?

    yeah so i wanted to walk on the ocean floor so i perfected gills for humans…
