Well, this is technically my second blog on here, the first one was years ago though and I think I only had one post. XD

 

Anyways, I figured it would be cool just to have a place to share the goings on of my super exciting life! :P

 

So, what can you expect? Well just a little bit of everything, sports that I'm paying attention too, new beers that I'm trying, movies that I'm seeing and just things I'm up to.

 

To get started, today went smooth. Although for a while at work I had to stare at that stupid blinking cursor when thinking of what to write. :pinch:

 

Anyways, tonight I'm excited for watching the "Futurama" series finale and I'm also trying a new beer! It's Leinenkugel Orange Shandy. It's not too bad. It's refreshing, those who have had the lemon shandys will be familiar, it's basically the same style just with orange instead of lemon.

 

And I guess that's about it! Till next time.

DRAG!

 

Well a very good week gets capped off by a Minnesota Golden Gophers victory! :th_yeah: Undefeated so far and going to see them next weekend! :eager:

 

In other news, I saw Ridkitten, and I thought it was alright. I'd recommend renting it though (gave it a 2 out of 5 in my review), not worth a theater price in my opinion.

 

Also, I'm enjoying a couple different types of beer tonight:

 

First is 312 Goose Island Urban Wheat Ale

312_zpsc291aa79.jpg

Not a bad beer, a little different from what I was expecting with a wheat ale, but still flavorful. However, the next beer I had was better.

 

St-Pauli-Girl-Special-Dark_zps18f0c9a6.j

St. Pauli Girl Special Dark beer is of course dark. It's both a little bitter and a little sweet. Overall a good brew. (The mascot is a plus too. :fu: )

 

So Vikings kick off tomorrow, but for now, I'm excited for Toonami to start. :happy:

 

Till next time~

OK, two takeaways from work today.

 

1. Financial stuff can be really confusing some times.

 

2. I love thesaurus.com

Time for an update!

 

Well, this was a pretty busy week. Mainly since I took vacation time Friday, Monday and Tuesday, so I had to work ahead.

 

Tomorrow I'm headed towards the Twin Cities (Minneapolis and St. Paul) to gear up to see the Gophers LIVE on Saturday! Should be great to get in some nice R&R time.

 

And of course I tried another beer recently too. :P

This one, Big Bay Brewing Company Amber Ale, was pretty good. Amber ales aren't necessarily my first choice, but this one caught my eye. It's not half bad.

Alright, new entry time!

 

Well it's back to the old grind tomorrow, vacation is done. But, it was fun, though, had a great time in the Twin Cities (although was hoping for a better out come with the Vikings game -_-).

 

Anyways, tried a couple new brews of course, and they turned out to be really good!

 

The first I obviously caught my eye because of the cover art.

 

hornygoatexposedale_zpsf8f17142.jpg

The Horny Goat Exposed Cream Ale! :chuckle:, funny cover and title aside, this stuff was actually pretty tasty. Most "cream beers" that I have had were darker, but this one was lighter. The creamy flavor made for a really smooth drink.

 

The other one I had though was the best I've had in a while.

 

Rogue1_zps6139d564.png

Rogue Dead Guy Ale, brewed out of Oregon, another one where the art and name caught my eye.

 

The inscription says:

Gratefully dedicated to the Rogue in each of us. Dead Guy Ale's image depicting a skeleton with a beehive hat is in honor of the Mayan Day of the Dead.

 

This beer is really delicious, very sweet with a lot of caramel flavors. Highly recommend this one.

 

In other news, this is now my new favorite commercial

 

 

I find those hamsters so funny :lmao:

LID YOU SHOULD DO MORE BEER REVIEWS >>>

OK, you asked for it, but you will have to wait a little while for later in the post :hehehe:

 

First of all, Saturday has been great, if you look at my sig, you'll see that the Minnesota Golden Gophers are 4-0, next week we play our biggest rival Iowa! I am super excited :wha:

 

I checked out Prisoners yesterday, solid movie, very intense. I'll be writing my full review tomorrow, but I'll say this, the movie is intense as hell.

 

In other news, next week is my first full week back at work. Had vacation days the last two weeks and before that was labor day. So this next week might feel a little long at first.

 

Now, for the beer, :lol:

 

BuffaloGoldAle_zps591b2c80.jpg

Buffalo Gold Golden Ale sure does live up to its title. The color is a darker, deep gold and it is a fairly thick beer. It's a good brew with a sweet taste. Not great, but worth trying.

Little factoid for those who may not know.

This week is, what we Minnesotans, like to call Hate Week.

 

 

History of Minnesota vs Iowa from wiki

 

 

Trophy they play for -

Well... The big game didn't turn out the way I would have hoped... :cry:

 

But the season isn't over yet, gotta keep on movin.

 

Anyways, enough about that, because I've actually had a pretty good week.

 

I started watching this anime show called Is This a Zombie? and it has got to be the craziest show I've ever watched. That being said, it is also hilarious and pretty entertaining.

 

Also, this marks back-to-back weeks that I've seen a 5 out of 5 caliber movie! Last week it was Prisoners and this week it's Don Jon. Joseph Gordon-Levitt really had a brilliant debut as a director.

 

Oh, and I guess I have room for a beer recomendation. Just tried another Colorado beer.

icon-beer-sixpack-vanilla_zps96b13727.pn

 

This is Brecenridge Vanilla Porter and it is a fantastic beer. The vanilla flavor is definitely there, hitting right at the start. It also leaves the taste of dark chocolate. This is a brew that you want to sip slowly and savor every drop.

Since the NFL (My team the Vikings included) are playing in Europe today, I figured I'd drink a bit in European way.

 

Using my beer boot that I got from family in Germany!

Well, I guess you could say Pittsburgh got the boot out of London, because Minnesota won! woot.

 

Beer in the boot went to me, though. :fu:

 

Hmm, maybe they should make a glass boot that looks like Sakura's :lmao:
