Sometimes I think I should stop these beer reports. They're all so damn similar. As in boring.
But I guess I'll keep writing them. They at least let people know that I'm somewhat alive and that I have something of a social life.
My surprisaphobia was really acting up last night. Probably just from lack of sleep. I got to Rich O's at about 8:30. The place was about half full. For a Friday night, half-full is flipping wonderful to me.
So I sat on the loveseat and I ordered a Flying Dog K-9 Cruiser (34). After about 10 seconds the PBDs sitting around me tried to talk to me, so I got up and moved to the bar.
I was enjoying myself, reading some fiction that had won awards in a local newspaper's contest, when this dude decided to stand right behind me. I mean right behind me. I got the impression that the fucker wanted to sit in one of the two empty stools, but I didn't ask. What I did was pick up my shit again and move over to the recently-vacated island.
My next beer was a Bell's Kalamazoo Stout (295). Some dude came over and sat on the other side of the island, but he didn't try to talk to me, so I let him live.
After a while, WomanRepellant came in, so I talked to him. See, I do talk to people sometimes.
For some reason, a million people all crowded around the island and started yapping at each other, so I picked up my shit and went over and sat on the sofa.
I ordered another Bell's, but I only drank a little bit of it (300). I guess lack of sleep is messing with my ability to drink, making me even more of a lightweight than I normally am.
I went to Wal-Mart and bought some CDs and DVDs, then I went to White Castle and came home.
