A Little Bit of Luck

Lucky Dice

Race lotteries.  You either love them or you hate them.  Picture this… You finally talked yourself into signing up for that run that’s been on your “to do list” for the last two years.  You’re both physically and mentally prepared this time.  After you fill out all of the information and the registration is complete, you receive an email.  It usually reads something along the lines of, “We’ll get back to you in a month with your status – good luck!”  Slowest. Month. Ever.

Turn off the Tube!

Remote Control

A Holiday Ode to the Brewers

America!  Or, as you college kids like to say nowadays, ‘Murica… Either way, this is the land of the free and the home of the brave.  This is the country that builds shitty cars, makes Twinkies, and watches Drunk History.  It’s only right that we should be brewing our own beer.  Our four founding fathers brewed beer because even they didn’t like drinking yellow fizzy stuff.  And they had wooden teeth…

Yea that’s right, I said it.  It’s been 90 degrees for way too long now so it’s time to bring it back to the 60’s.  Calm down Baby Boomers, I meant temperature…  I can only take so much of the beach, the sun screen, and the humidity.  Ahhh there’s nothing like that New Jersey air hitting you when you step out of the shower.  It makes you feel… well… like you need another shower.

Drink Up! Rejection Tastes Great

P1010841

At first sip, rejection can taste very bitter; it almost burns a bit.  As you swish it around your mouth, however, you may get a feel for it.  You can pick up different tastes that are present, some which may actually have sweetness to them.  Swallowing it usually is followed by an after taste that has been known to linger; that’s your ego deflating.  But, with that 2nd and 3rd sip, things start to go down much easier don’t they?  Now that you have adjusted to that bitterness, the body responds by accepting it.  Rejection is actually similar to drinking your first IPA…
