beer, jennyB pizza, and I'm leaving

Well, I'm finished with pretty much everything for the semester. I didn't get a draft of my Darwin paper to Sandy, but everything else is done. My paper on the synthesis: a little rough around the edges, but I think there's some good stuff in there. Logic exam was turned in last Thursday, grades aren't posted yet. Gave my presentation today on Friedman and the "strong programme" which went ok. Finished all my grades and will post them soon.

I'm going to Pittsburgh tomorrow to see my friend Tracy from college who I haven't seen in a while and, of course, the most Irish one of them all, R Kelly. R doesn't get off his completely insane-o job until 3am, so Tracy and I will have to keep busy (mainly by going to Penn Brewing Company: dark lager here I come!) until we can rendevouz with R in Clairton at 3am and continue drinking until the sun come up...ya'll. Should be fun. I need to go to sleep.

BUT FIRST...I was all excited about beer the other night so I went into the 'cellar' and picked out some of my most highly anticipated bottles for a little photo shoot. Here they are:



From left to right, all more or less sour ales: De Proef's Primitive Ale, New Belgium's La Folie, Oud Beersel Kriek, 11 year old Vapeur Folie, and Lindeman's Cuvee Rene Gueuze. All from Belgium, all nice and funk-ay.

Then on Saturday, JennyB and I penciled in some face time with each other and made pizza. And drank La Fin du Monde. And watched Chappelle Show (on the computer) and then a video on human evolution. And Jen fell asleep. Sorry JennyB. I just got all worked up talking about linguistics with you and I knew there was this cool thing about sign language on the video.

Mathew Dunn-

We're under seige here in SC. Our wonderous Rep. Sen. Mike Fair wants to put ID in the science classes! Anyway, I wrote a short piece, in reference to the afore mentioned topic over on dhanks.blogspot and I'd like your take on the topic when you get a chance.

By the way, congrats on finishing up the semester! I know it's quite the relief. And have a good time over break!

Hanks,
You fiend! I found you out and never shall I forget the wrongs you've perpetrated against me. Two years scrimping by on coconut soup and baby turtle blood has made a cold calculating man my former friend/partner.
You marrooned me on that damn island over a cheap slut with skinned knees and rough pamls. Her cooch smelled of vasiline and you my friend have a greasy smile.
The only way I can get even with you is by building the largest hot hot air balloon ever and then cirumnavigate the globe.
I am a sad man living on a cold dish.
Yours truly,
Dr. Pugnacious Widebottom

All those beers were pretty tasty, but the Oud Beersel Kriek was my favorite.
