It's been a long week for many of us, and I certainly don't need to bother you with any of the boring details. I will say it ended on a high note, as I managed to escape the dungeon a bit early and head to a happy hour in honor of a co-worker and friend moving to a new position in a new department. I'm lucky in the sense I get to work with great people - it makes going to work much, much easier. I now work with one less great person, but our company has the habit of bringing things full circle, so I'm sure we'll run into each other again. I do worry that the work happy hour is starting to stretch far beyond the typical "happy hours" and is moving into the evening hours. Hopefully I at least get to hear the stories - occasionally, being in charge isn't great when it comes to hearing the stories.
What is great, is beer. Specifically, tonight's beer is the Dubbel from Brouwerij Corsendonk. It pours a dark brown in the glass with a thin white head. When you take the scent in, you get aromas of malt, dark fruits, and chocolate. The taste is quite nice - a balance of malt, spice, stone fruits, a hint of smoke, and a sweet chocolate finish. Not a beer I'd drink every day, but certainly a very tasty Belgian double. If you find it, drink it.
Thing to Think About Today:
Last night, I blogged about Cisco Brewers. Cisco, you say? After sleeping on it, I realized if I was drinking a Cisco, I should have thrown in a reference to early 00's rapper Sisqo, not the Dead Milkmen. But don't fret - we're talking about (Corsen) Donk tonight, so I think the Thong Song still makes a tremendous amount of sense. If you don't get the donk reference, you may be too old to read this blog. And so, let's close out our Friday in grand style:
Does anyone know what Sisqo is doing these days? I mean, is he working at a telemarketing job with his hair dyed silver? If you know the answer or have seen him lately, please let me know. I worry about him.
