We are now at the last day of January and it is just feels like an excellent day for my random thoughts. Tomorrow is exciting for me since it not only begins “Great Divide Brewing Co. Month” here on the site, but also marks the beginning of the month where I will be turning 30. There is also a little bit of a side (beer related) project that will debut on the site in the very near future. I suppose those will be the consistent themes that you will see for at least the next four weeks. Now on to the mind purging . . .
Random thought #1 – Starting with my current beef with a beer commercial (you will know who I am referring to). You absolutely do what you have to do and use what you have to use when carrying multiple beers back to your buddies while at a sporting event. However, giving any of your buddies the one that you carried back in your teeth in completely unacceptable. That one is yours, you dope!
Random thought #2 – Simply watching somebody bench over 600 pounds, as the bar flexes a bit, makes my spine hurt. What an amazing collection of athletes there is at a national weightlifting event (check back tomorrow for photographic evidence).
Random thought #3 – Waving your hand at someone does not make it OK to pull your car out in from of him or her. To the best of my knowledge your hand motion does not override any laws or rules of the road.
Random thought #4 – Sunday morning bike rides are a great idea even when it is 20 degrees or so colder outside than you expected it to be. Just be sure to pedal faster to stay warm and consider wearing pants instead of shorts. Then make sure to jump in the pool when you get home because even though the water is extremely cold, it is still warmer than the air outside.
Random thought #5 – There is simply no disputing the fun of playing horseshoes with friends in your backyard while drinking beer. It took only a very short time to be reminded of that. Thank you to the FK crew for that and for helping me empty some bottles for future home brewing use!
