I'm hoping to get Thanksgiving week and Christmas week all off, so I can properly rest and the girls don't have to be shuttled around. Doggone it, I deserve it. I might even get 12 days off in a row, around Christmas.
I ran out of all beer save for a bottle of Arrogant Bastard and a bottle of Sugar Shack earlier this week, not even a can of Old Milwaukee or a bottle of Sam Adams Light. I was able to forestall a panic by having a bottle of raspberry gingermead, it's becoming better and better as the years go on. Still, it was a lot of alcohol to drink in one evening.
In media news, I finished Holy Blood, Holy Grail. It's a long, dry book that was ripped off for the theme of The Davinci Code. It's got all sorts of stuff in it, Jesus was married to Mary Magdelene and had at least one son, the latter two fled to Gaul after the "crucifixion", Jesus's bloodline is still alive, plus Templars, Cathars, the Grail, Essenes and all sorts of outside the mainstream truth. A highbrow DaVinci Code, if you're so inclined.
Last night was expected to be busy, as the oldest has Girl Scouts, but I didn't expect to be busy until 10:30.
She had a Social Studies project due today on the election, and had to have four articles cut out and summarized to hand in. She started with two cut out. It was 10:30 before we were done, I had to encourage her to keep on task all night long.
Being a day after payday, I picked up beer and some other groceries at the store. I got a case of Labatt's brewmasters special, Red Amber, Classic Labatts, Honey Lager and Porter. I was underwhelmed by the Red Amber last night, it tasted like a typical half corn North American mass market beer. I need to brew some real honey lager soon.
Speaking of Girl Scouts, she wants to sell them on our street tomorrow, it looks like the montly gaming meet will be out. Sunday we may even go to North North Tonawanda, Buffalo way.
