I just spent the weekend in Cape Cod with all of my co-workers, of whom 99% of them I've met for the first time, and I've come to one particular solid conclusion...I work with a bunch of alchoholics. And I mean that in the most endearing way...It's no wonder I seem to fit in so well.
After talking to Sara on the phone for countless conference calls and boring work stuff, I finally got to met her face to face for the first time. While I certainly wouldn't place Sarah in the raging booze-hound category, she's certainly no stranger to a well mixed white russian... she would do 'the Dude' proud. And I have (whith whipped cream on top.) Being from Toronto, Sarah was kind enough to pick up a few cans of some fabulous Ontario-Brewed beer and go through the painful procdss of transporting it through customs. it is liquid after all, and according to most US security agents, if it's looks like chapstick, it must be a bomb, so beer is certainly no easier. So needless to say, I was touched, moved and inspired by Sarah's gift. In fact, I think in balances out her character flaw of never having heard or eaten of tater-tots!
I seriously have to detox for a few days after this last weekend, so It'll probably be a little while before I update the site with the my actual drinking experience. so consider this a teaser.
So the first beer I drank after a hard day of busting my ass over some design work that Sarah had me do (as my project manager). After a long day of sweatin' it out over the keyboard, a beer was just what I needed. I was pleasantly surprised by the beer too, it was light and very smoot and full flavored. Yum.
The second beer I drank during a dinner party I hosted. It went splendidly with my Gnocchi (hand rolled of course) and mushrooms with lentils and red wine sauce.
And the third beer I took with to on a weekend camping trip with friends near the catskills, which you can read about here if you like.
