Nah, it wasn't hard. They're good employers.

It's late past midnight and I'm drinking gin martinis and Mexican lager beer. WTF! It will be Monday and I'll be a zombie for most of the day. But it's all good thanks to retired life. OK boomer.
Found myself in the Matrix and took the red pill. Now I want the blue pill and my bottle and leave me alone.

Blackout stout from those fine Cleavelanders known as Great Lakes.

Tonight thus far: my riff on the Obituary cocktail: a three to one of gin and absinthe (or substitute, in this case Herbaint.) Might crack open a Lady Luck Imperial Red from Karben 4 before bed.

I was probably drunk when I said that, but I meant it.

You want an existential crisis, go to a bar.

The second best thing about a shot of Malört is the face the bartender makes when you order it.

Pint of Guinness at the pub before work.

Couldn’t help myself and tried some whiskeys.

Knappogue 12 — very nice.
Jameson IPA Caskmates — terrible, no flavor, weak dram.

That IPA Jameson was fairly disappointing. I have a vague memory of trying a stout edition Caskmates, I wanna say I remember liking it. Been just a little too long.

Currently sipping some Bushmills black.

I personally loved it, and I I'll you why: one of the redneck dives I used to frequent (although I could go back, I just haven't) got a bottle for free from their distributor. So I come in one night, and the Thursday night bartender goes "Tipsy! Usual?" And I say yes and he says "hold on! I got something you wanna try." So my usual there is a bottle of Fantasy Factory IPA from Karben 4 brewing and a shot of Jameson. So he has the Jameson IPA. And the first shot was free. And the second. And the first the next time. And the second the next time. And over the course of a few short weeks I had a whole bottle at the bar free to me.
Good times.
Tonight it's going to be two dry dirty gin martinis. My brine-to-olive ratio is getting less than ideal, so I have to straight that out. If I get bent in the process, so much the better.

^^^ Free whiskey is fun whiskey.

I'm finishing off the last of the blackout stout before moving on to the old reliable Genesee.

Dry dirty gin martini. I picked up a sixer of Terrapin Brewery Hopsecutioner on my way to work and may or may not break into that. Or maybe just stick to gin cocktails for the evening. This time of year I work six days a week, 60+ hours, and I haven't had time for a proper liquor store run. I really need to stock up on the essentials.

Aberlour 12. Very subdued with the flavors, but pleasant.

Bermuda Triangle.

Tonight it's Ardbeg 10, my go-to scotch, drinking especially to celebrate Repeal Day! Cheers to you magnificent bastards.
