Okay, I'm just going to rush through this entry because I don't feel like writing anything.
On the way out tonight I stopped to see VigilanteGirl*. She's in a much better mood tonight, so that's good.
At Rich O's, I started out with a Gulden Draak, reasoning that if I had the strongest beer first I'd be better able to pace myself later. Ha ha.
My plan (MisunderstoodGirl made fun of me for having an actual beer plan) was to next have an NABC Cone Smoker and then end the night with a Smithwick's or two.
After the Gulden Draak, I saw a beer written on the board that intrigued me - especially after last weekend's experimentation.
(draft) Took a long time to drink - it's pretty filling. Very nice aroma and a good flavor. This beer has convinced me that I now like hefeweissbiers. Seemed to affect me more than its 5.3% alcohol would suggest.
I drank this beer over the course of about two hours while sitting with RealTrainGirl and MisunderstoodGirl in the living room area. Once it was finally gone, I realized that I'd seriously miscalculated something and that even a Smithwick's would be too strong for me.
So I ordered a Guinness.
I drank about three inches out of it and decided that I'd had enough.
So tonight, for whatever reason, 10 ounces of 10.5% beer plus 20 ounces of 5.3% beer plus about 4 ounces of 4.2% beer was my limit.
I know not why.
So I left Rich O's a little before 12:00 and went back to see VigilanteGirl again. She's taking her unsettling news very well, though I guess she could just be in shock. I know I would be. I'll be there for her as much as she'll let me.
That's all I want to write.
* - When this entry started I was using a different nickname here. After reading it this morning I decided that I didn't want to have to keep track of two names for her, so I switched back.
