winter extravaganza part 3: MIP2K7 in pictures

All the way live from the 215.

The constitution is not a living document.

Ian won MIP2K7. A kitten and a Roth IRA? Seriously? What a fucking travesty.

winter extravaganza part 2: my father's domain

My father's domain is aeroplanes.

My brother's domain is a wave.

ice trout

Why not drive three hours out of my way to catch a fat brown trout on this winter day? I gerrymandered (MB Pell) my way from Pittsburgh to the Barree Gorge and hiked through the thin snow and caught this nice trout on a #24 midge emerger I tied for Brookville. It was cold so I only fished for an hour and a half. Then I went to Boxer's Cafe and had a cajun burger and a pint of Brooklyn's latest brewer's reserve, a very nice "golden ale." I also purchased a bottle of Penn's Penndemonium to take away, a strong Maifest style lager that was released, yes, last May. This 8% brute has hopefully aged gracefully.
